Want a free book?

It's here! Search for it on Amazon and you'll find it. A box of copies should be in the mail any day now. Five people ordered it the first day. Kisses and Lies is officially published now. It's a tiny bit less exciting than with Harsh Prey, but only a tiny bit. And I feel like I know what I'm doing a little better this time around.

Speaking of knowing what I'm doing, I have a proposal: I will give a free copy of Kisses and Lies to the first five people who contact me and agree to write a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. You don't have to write a glowing review. You don't have to give it five stars. All I ask in exchange for the book is that you agree to write an honest review and rate it in a way that you believe to be accurate. 

Here are the rules, so to speak. If you sign on for do this, you're agreeing to the following: 
  • Once you send me your email address, I'll email you a .pdf file of the book. You'll read it and write a review that you publish on Amazon and/or Goodreads. An honest review. If you love it, say that. If you hate it, say that. If you're in between, say that too. 
  • In the interest of full disclosure, please mention in your review that you are not being paid to write this but that you have received a free copy in exchange for an honest review. 
  • Everyone who follows through and writes the review will receive a free autographed copy of the paperback. 
  • Don't share the .pdf with anyone. If you like the book, please tell others, but don't give them the book for free. I am trying to make a living at this, after all. 
  • Please email me a copy of your review so that I can use it in publicity. I won't use your name unless you say I can, but I'd appreciate it if I could quote you. 
  • Finally, when you email me, I would like permission to add you to my mailing list if you aren't already on it. If you would rather not, just say so in your email and I won't add you--promise. 
So all you have to do is comment on here. First five commenters win. 


  1. Hi Joe! I would love to read your new book and write a review!

    1. Great! Email me at and I'll reply with a copy of the book.

    2. I just figured out who you are--hi!

  2. Hey Joe, I've been looking forward to this one and I'd love to write a review for you. I'll put it at the top of the summer review writing stack!

  3. Send me your email and I'll send it.
