Twilight Times Books to Offer Free E-Books Between March 3 and 9, 2013

with 2 comments

Folks, I have three pieces of information to impart today regarding Twilight Times Books (TTB).

First, there’s a giveaway going on next week (March 3 to March 9, 2013) over at Twilight Times Books for “Read an E-Book Week.”  Several books will be given away, including Stephanie Osborn’s THE CASE OF THE DISPLACED DETECTIVE: THE ARRIVAL (book 1 in her Displaced Detective series).  Read all about it here.

Second, there will be a concurrent sale over at TTB on their most popular e-books.  The sale will take place at TTB’s own site, over at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other fine e-book outlets.  So there’s never been a better time to read an e-book — or a cheaper one — than March 3 to March 9, 2013.

Third — and most personally relevant — is that I’ve been named to the TTB Editorial Board.  (Check this link for further details.)  Publisher Lida Quillen let me know she was going to do this, which I truly appreciate.

There’s really no better way for a publisher to show her appreciation of what you’re doing as an editor than by public acknowledgement of this type.  So I’m quite pleased to be able to point this out.  (I’ve known about it for a week, but wanted to discuss it now to coincide with the “read an e-book” promotion.)

Also, please check out the Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) currently being offered by Twilight Times Books.  I edited SAILING UPHILL by Gerald Mills, a fine and funny book about sailing and life.  I also edited ANSELM: A Metamorphosis by Florence Byham Weinberg, an excellent literary fantasy set in 1965 about a flawed Catholic priest and a flawed literary professor, and how they intersect.  And I edited LUCID by Natalie Roers, a young adult literary fantasy about lucid dreaming with a sweet romance at its heart.  (I’m also currently in the midst of editing two other books for TTB, but those three are done and in, so I can talk about them.)  Please go to this page to order the ARCs for these three fine books right now.

And do, do check out Stephanie Osborn’s free e-book next week.  She deserves a much wider audience.

Thus ends this public service announcement.

    • Thanks, Chris. 🙂 I appreciate that.

      If you haven’t read Stephanie’s work before, you should give it a try. The Displaced Detective series is a way to use both “World as Myth” a la Robert A. Heinlein and parallel realities as a way to get both Sherlock Holmes and a hyperspatial physicist, Skye Chadwick, into proximity. The two get along quite well, and eventually marry (takes ’em three books to do that) . . . I’m currently reading the fourth book right now, and it’s just as good as the first three.

      So since you can get the first book for nothing next week, go ahead and grab your freebie. 😉

      There also are some books that are available right now for free over at the link I provided. So if any of those look good to you, you can grab ’em right now. 😉
