Here’s the Breaking News!

By | September 28, 2012

Hi! I’m happy to announce…

IT’S HERE! Tomorrow (Saturday, Sept. 29) you—and your friends—can get an absolutely free copy of our award-winning novel, Turn Back Time!  It’s the Amazon Kindle version that you can read on your computer, Bluetooth, iPad, iPhone, Android, etc., without your buying a thing!

Why free? Because we want as many people as possible to enjoy this highly-acclaimed novel, create “buzz” & see rise to the top a book that upholds high morals, with no filthy speech or vulgarities!

The last time we did a give-away, 14,881 people (that’s not a misprint!) downloaded the book in two days! We don’t expect that many this time, but there could be several thousand and it’s exciting to know that you, and your friends, can get it—absolutely without charge, no strings attached!

The book won the Benjamin Franklin Award for Fiction and was a highly successful DoubleDay Crossings Book Club selection (they sold out and reprinted, twice). When you check, you’ll see that Turn Back Time has 39 reviews and that 36 are 5-Stars, and three are 4-Stars!

But when we were writing it, Lisa and I kept wondering if people would like it or even finish reading it! We could only dream that people would praise it so and want others to have it—and beg for a sequel, and then, yet another!

You can imagine how satisfying it is to us now to know that thousands and thousands of people around the English-speaking world have a novel inspired by the meeting, romance, and lives of her grandparents—my mother and (the formerly bad-news bachelor) dad! How blessed we were to get to write it. Maybe you, too, have one inside you just waiting to get out!

So we’re delighted to be able to give the book to you, and encourage you to tell others about it.

Please let your friends and family know the book can be theirs–free. Post it to your Facebook friends, tweet about it on Twitterand do a mailing to your email contacts. They’ll be grateful to to get the book totally without cost! So please do pass the word about it. It’s free for one-day only: Saturday, September 29.

Get it by going to Back Time, and placing the order. It will show the cost as “$0.” Here’s a link will also go there without any hassle:

To save you some time if you want to help us get the word out, I’ll post a sample Facebook, twitter and email message below. Use any and all. Modify and adapt as you choose.

I’m so grateful to have such great supporters-encouragers as you!
