The Raw Shark Texts for £1 on Kindle!

Hello folks,

I wanted to post something up here to let UK Kindle owners know that they can buy The Raw Shark Texts for just £1 at the moment.

£1! Crazy, but true. I'm on a mission to try to get the book into the Kindle top 100, so if you enjoyed Raw Shark, please, please, please repost/retweet/buy(it's only a pound!)/generally let people know about it!

Many thanks to everyone who can help!

“Every single cell in the human body replaces itself over a period of seven years. That means there's not even the smallest part of you now that was part of you seven years ago.”
Steven Hall, The Raw Shark Texts

“I looked at her and a voice inside me said, we only see starlight because all the stars are bleeding.
Steven Hall, The Raw Shark Texts

“It's a stark thought that when we die most of us will leave behind uneaten biscuits, unused coffee, half toilet rolls, half cartons of milk in the fridge to go sour; that everyday functional things will outlive us and prove that we weren't ready to go; that we weren't smart or knowing or heroic; that we were just animals whose animal bodies stopped working without any sort of schedule or any consent from us.”
Steven Hall, The Raw Shark Texts

brook glad to see you here, and i'm happy to be your friend. looking forward to your updates!

message 4: by Mary

Mary Thanks for the add!! I've spoke with you on myspace before, I'm Iron Mary Kidd on there, I run the Dystopian Society book club. :)

Your book is one of the BEST books I've read in quite some time. Will you be putting out anymore any time soon?

message 3: by Stacy

Stacy Young YAY! I'm HONORED to be your goodreads friend! I've never befriended an author of such an admirable text before. I've read a couple of books since finishing yours and I'm delighted (?) to say that I'm disappointed in them because I am desiring the "zing" your book gave me. Of course some of it was a little esoteric for me as I'm in my I'm-an-English-teacher-on-summer-break-please-give-me-some-guilty-pleasure-reading-that-I-can-absently-absorb-by-the-pool mode, but I see myself revisiting this book again when my brain is more fully functioning. Do you have others? Do you intend to write others? Do you have recommendations for me? I have 3 weeks until school starts and would love to fill my time with some good reads!


PS I used to teach English in HULL, Massachusetts.

Yorick Thanks for the add. I thought your book was brilliant and entertaining.

I'm sure you are, but: write more. A book--not note to me. I'd liked to read another of your stories.

Michael Thanks for the add - I love your book!
