Special Offer on Not Your Heart Away



A while back JK Rowling brought a new book out. It launched through a major publisher, with the normal promotion given to any book but with one crucial difference. It didn’t have her name on the cover. Instead, someone decided that The Cuckoo’s Calling was going to have Robert Galbraith’s name as the author.

It sold 1,500 copies.

It was written by the same author who normally sells books by the warehouse full, the one whose Harry Potter books have put over £23o million into clearing her overdraft. JK Rowling doesn’t need my help to sell her books. But the story illustrates a point – it wasn’t the author stopping the sales; it was the way people perceived the book.

Known author – good. Unknown author – is it worth it?

So I thought I’d make buying Not Your Heart Away worth your while, baby. From today, Not Your Heart Away for Kindle is available at $0.99, or 77p in real money. Don’t say I never do anything for you.

If you want a real paper copy then obviously it’s a little more expensive. If you haven’t got a Kindle you can download the Kindle reader free and install it on absolutely anything with a screen, except perhaps an Etch-a-sketch. It might not be quite the same on that.

So at last, it’s cheap enough to give it a go. What have you got to lose, apart from 77p?

As Ben the narrator says, maybe it doesn’t matter if it’s true, so long as you believe it is. Maybe that’s how it works.

Get Not Your Heart Away free

I know how much those words stir the soul of every netizen.

It’s true. For two days only, Not Your Heart Away is free to download on Kindle.

Just go to the Amazon website here.

If you don’t have a Kindle you can still get it. Go to the Kindle website and you can download the reader software, again totally free. It’ll work on PCs, Macs and anything else you’ve got.

Why Am I Doing This?

Because I care. Ha ha! Fooled you!

Because I want as many people as possible to read this book, to talk about it, to review it, to say to their friends “there’s this really good book.”

So that’s what I’m giving. Now your turn. If you download it would you please just do this tiny thing for me? Review it. Say what you think about Not Your Heart Away on Amazon, on Goodreads, anywhere else you can think of. If you like it, say why. If you don’t, I’d still like you to say why.

So far there’s only been one intellectual “sounds like s**t” from someone who hadn’t read it and then went on to demonstrate his intellectual dexterity by asking if the title was written by Yoda (laugh? I broke ribs laughing…) and then bravely changed his status on Facebook to avoid any discussion of his proclamation.

If you can do a review in a little more detail I’d love to hear it. Meanwhile Bernard Levin, that restraining order still stands.
