New Book for All Hallows Read: When Darkness Beckons

Wittegen Press is supporting
All Hallow's Read 2012
by giving away a free eBook on Amazon.

The brainchild of Neil Gaiman, the principle of All Hallow's Read is simple: during the week of Halloween, or the day itself, give someone a scary book. Well, we can't hand out our books physically, so we're going to let people help themselves.

From 31st October to 3rd Nov 2012
When Darkness Beckons will be available for FREE on all Amazon sites.

When Darkness Beckons (wittegen Page)

Amazon US, UK, DE, FR, ES, IT, JP

The book contains two spooky stories:

Catcher of Souls by Natasha Duncan-Drake

When Miles sets foot inside The King James pub he knows instantly there is a disembodied soul in residence. The question is, is the soul responsible for the deaths that have happened on the site or were they just accidents. It's Miles' job to catch troublesome lost souls, but when danger strikes he might just be too late.

Some Things Are Stranger... by Sophie Duncan

Life is weird enough for Jake being a werewolf on the run from The Pagan Dawn, ruthless hunters determined to wipe out all 'paranormal scum'. His luck runs out when he is ambushed after a Halloween party and, badly injured, he dives into the shadows of an abandoned warehouse with his pursuers on his heels. Yet, Jake discovers that he is not alone and his encounter with a goofy hobo, who talks about the place being haunted, teaches him that all strangeness is relative.

Now because the majority of our audience is on Amazon and we had to enrol the book into KDP Select to ensure it would be free on the right days it is only available on Amazon. However, never fear, you can still read it if you don't have a Kindle. We apologise to non Amazon users, but this was the only way we could see to do it and still reach everyone.

This is how to get the book if you don't read on Kindle:

  1. Download one of the free Apps Amazon offer for reading Kindle books: UK | US | DE | FR | ES | IT | JP

  2. Wait until 31st Oct (midnight PST is when the promotions come online) then download the book.

  3. Now you have two choices either:
  4. Read the book on the ap you downloaded

  5. or
  6. Download this useful piece of software Calibre.

  7. The eBook has no DRM, so you can copy it to where you like and Calibre will convert it to just about any format for you.

  8. Read it on your usual eReader.
