Here is your chance to read the first book in David Estes new series, Salem's Revenge.

Title: BREW
Author: David Estes
Genre: Dystopia

Synopsis:
Salem’s Revenge strikes without warning or mercy, ravaging the powerless human race under the forces of united gangs of witches, wizards, and warlocks. During the slaughter, Rhett Carter's foster parents and sister are killed, and his best friend and girlfriend are abducted by a gang of witches calling themselves the Necromancers, who deal in the dark magic of raising the dead. Rhett’s sword-wielding neighbor with a mysterious past saves Rhett from becoming another casualty of the massacre and teaches him the skills he needs to survive in this new world.

Thanks Brooke! I sent you the Kindle version as you didn't specify which format. Does that work? If not, I can send you a different version :)

Tammy K. (rambles_of_a_reader) David,
I really feel like I should read one of your books as I have been Goodreads friends with you for so long.
description

You are such an amazing goodreads member. Writing books, hosting your own GR group and participating in dozens of others, all while having a 'normal' family life. Dang! You must have superpowers :-D

Yet I can not turn around a review that quickly this month.
Between work, my GR group and life, the winter holiday season is a bear for me.
I wish you and this book much success.
T.


message 12: by David (new) - added it

David Estes (davidestesbooks) Aww thanks SO MUCH Tammy! That's REALLY nice of you to say :) I'm not sure I have superpowers as all of that stuff you mentioned means I collapse into bed at night LOL! But it's all worth it to be a part of this amazing community and do what I love for a living. I hope you get to read one of my books soon, but no pressure, I understand there are a lot of other awesome books out there and limited time in the day!

I just love that these are in e format so my 19 year old cat can't throw up on it and my kitten won't eat it. All the books I have by David are on my Kindle, so that's awesome.

Also, it is coming close the holidays so I understand the time constraint problems. I just have to make it time sensitive to benefit the authors as well as the reviewers. It is also why I started making Christmas gifts a month ago. To be fair, I have only made two gifts so far, LOL.


Rhonda Campbell | 5 comments I'd be glad to r4r. Have to say I've never had the pleasure of reading any of your books. My email is luvrgirlrgc@Yahoo.com and Mobi format Thanks look forward to reading it!

Wendy | 9 comments Got it! Thanks!!! Can't wait to dig in to it! :D


Sally Hannoush | 3 comments I have a question for everyone. How long does a review have to be to be considered a review? I always want to sign up for books to read but I can't write a review to save my life. A few lines usually stating if I liked it or not is what I normally do for a book I've read. I see paragraphs of words by others. What would one consider a proper size review and what does it contain? Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask. (Can I be directed to where would be good?)


message 26: by David (new) - added it

David Estes (davidestesbooks) You're most welcome, Wendy, enjoy!!

Great question, Sally! From my perspective as an author, I'm more than happy with a few lines. To me, the length of a review is a personal decision by the reviewer based on their read, time constraints, and feelings about the book. I personally would hate to have someone not participate in one of my Read to Reviews (meaning I get one less review!) because they don't have the time to write a lengthy review. Even a few lines can make a world of difference for a book. Others may have different opinions, but that's mine! Hope that helps and you get the chance to participate :)

Thanks for your quick response. I enjoyed reading a few of your other books and will continue to read more. I would like to say "sign me up" but I won't know if I will be able to read the book until next week and would hate to take advantage of a free book without at least a few liners. Normally when I do start a book I can get through them quickly- if it entertains me or nothing else comes up. I look forward to adding my email to the list- as long as its not full. Have a wonderful weekend to you and everyone else!

Might have to wait a while to get Boil, but I will read it as soon as I can. I am excited for it. When does the last one come out?

The third and final book, Burn, will be out in late January. It's already written and is currently being reviewed by my agent's editorial staff. Then the trilogy will be complete!
