Win a Free e-Book

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY--One Entry per person per email--SIX chances to win

THIS TIME by Joan Szechtman--2010 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist for General Fiction/Novel

Instead of dying in battle, Richard III awakens in the 21st-century. Can he adapt? The story follows two parallel paths: the present where Richard must learn how to adjust to not only the technological advancements but also the more difficult cultural differences; and looking back at the past to solve some of the mysteries that have haunted and maligned his image for over 500 years.

Giveaway starts October 19, 2012 at 12:01 AM and ends October 22, 2012 at 12:01 AM. Winners will be announced the next day. Unless the entry is a winner, remaining entries will be eligible for a free ebook until the giveaway ends.
