I just got the most remarkable email! Free-Wrench has been selected as one of the Best Books of the Month for the AU/NZ iBooks Store! If you’re a reader in that region, THANK YOU! To understand why I’m so deeply honored to be selected for this promotion, you must first understand the nature of the promotion. This is not simply a matter of a marketing team selecting a book with a pretty cover and good reviews. The good folks in charge of the promo select books that they have read, they have enjoyed, and they believe others will enjoy as well. It is an honor that has been bestowed upon giants of the industry. People like JK Rowling. It comes with a front and center banner advertising the selections, and that’s wonderful, but what means the most to me is that it comes with an editorial note!
If you’d asked me last November when I was writing Free-Wrench if I thought anyone in New Zealand or Australia would even read it, I’d have said, “Well that’s a bit much to hope for, isn’t it?” But to have it read by someone in Apple, and to have them believe in it enough to share it with the rest of the iBooks users is more than I ever could have imagined.
For those who have read and enjoyed Free-Wrench already, thank you. For those who haven’t, it is proudly available on iBooks. Australians and New Zealanders can find the promotion here. I hope you’ll give my books and the others a try. Apparently they’re pretty good!
Once again, and as always, thank you for reading.
