|The War Zone Kindle Edition.|
To celebrate the season - and the wonderful article about my writing workshops, my life and work by Lisa Millegan Renner in tomorrow's Modesto Bee (Friday December 23, 2011) - I am running a FIVE DAY FREE-DOWNLOAD "MODESTO BEE PROMOTION" of the Amazon Kindle edition of my novel, The War Zone.
The entire 20th Anniversary Edition of the book - complete with a subtly updated version of the novel, a new introduction, including the wonderful pre-publication letter Anthony Burgess sent me, plus an afterword by Tim Roth, who directed the multi-award-winning feature film of the book, and my personal diary of the making of the film - will be available for free download from 12:01am on Friday December 23, 2011 until just before midnight on Tuesday December 27th.
You do not need to own a Kindle to read the book. Amazon offers its own free downloads of Kindle apps for Macs, PCs and most smartphones at this link.
The Kindle apps do everything a Kindle can do: you can purchase other titles from Amazon, you can highlight passages in a book, you can add your own comments, place bookmarks - and synchronize all these notes and highlights between various Kindle apps and devices.
A cautionary note: The War Zone, which is also available in print as a trade paperback from Amazon and other booksellers, priced $15.99, is an honest, uncompromising novel about incest and adolescent morality and fury. Its language is raw and its sexuality is explicit. Please only download or buy the book if you are comfortable reading such material. More details about it are on this blog under The War Zone tab at the top.
Deepest thanks to Lisa Millegan Renner and the Modesto Bee for writing such a fine article about me, I truly appreciate it - and warmest wishes for a Wonderful Holiday Season and a Happy and Healthy 2012 to Lisa, her family and all of you.
Happy Holidays - Alexander
