It’s World Book Night, as you may already be aware, and to get into the spirit of the occasion I’m going to send off a free e-book of EIGHTBALL BOOGIE or THE BIG O to anyone who asks.
All you have to do is email me at dbrodb[at]gmail.com and indicate which book you’d prefer. Simple as that.
I look forward to hearing from you …
UPDATE: Thanks very much to everyone who got in touch yesterday to request books, and also to those of you who got in touch with some very kind words indeed. I’m working my way through the backlog as you read: if you made a request and haven’t received your copy yet, rest assured that it will be with you very shortly.
Normal service has now been resumed, and THE BIG O and EIGHTBALL BOOGIE are available again at $2.99 / £2.99.
Thanks again, folks – that was a lot of fun.
