99 Cent New Book Release
In a change from the norm, author Derek Haines is releasing his latest book, February The Fifth, at a huge price reduction for e-book readers.
Instead or the normal RRP of $2.99, all three e-books, February The Fifth, Milo Moon and Louis, will be available for the whole of February 2011 for only $0.99 each. Either from Amazon.com or from Smashwords.com.
‘It’s not a matter of price for me. I just want as many readers as possible to be able to enjoy reading my books at a reasonable price,’ he said.
February The Fifth is a fast paced allegorical sci-fi farce touching on some very sensitive topics of faith and belief, but handled with a subtle touch of satire and wit.
Some reviews: ‘I laughed, had fun, remembered all the characters because of their crazy names and even thought about how the author invented them -- most importantly, I think I learned something!’ "Bitsy Bling Books" ‘He tells the story of his sudden and unexpected rise to power, and it consequences, with his usual easy style of writing that is both enjoyable and funny. A great read.’ “Tractid”
‘Derek Haines plays with some crazy ideas in his head and lets his vivid imagination go wild.’ “Vivo”
