Bummer for me, I didn't see your free day in time. What's the genre and how are you doing since the promo?


Karleene Morrow Many thanks to those who've responded and plan to pick up DESTINIES on it's Free Day next Thursday, March 15th. Now if someone could just tell me how I got to the Events page to post it in the first place - have something else to post. Haven't really figured out Goodreads yet, I just stumble around


Donald Stilwell Thank you for the invite for free book, sounds great, my book. Obligation, is free today and Friday, please download and enjoy
