With a little help from my amazing editor Amanda Spedding, the second free copy of RADIO to hit the little free library circuit is now up for grabs. For those in the Sydney, Australia area, head on over to the Street Library on Bardwell Road near the Charles Daly Reserve in Bardwell Park. This is great opportunity for Sydneysiders to have a go at RADIO and, if interested, help out with the #WheresRADIO campaign.
The steps are simple.
- Give RADIO a read
- Consider leaving an honest review on whatever bookish site you prefer
- Take your copy of RADIO to any new free book location. If you can’t find one, then it can just go back where you found it.
- Either way, take a picture of that location then post the location and picture on Twitter or Instagram. Be sure to tag me @jrushingwrites and use the hashtag #WheresRADIO and I’ll repost the books new location along with a big thank you.
Lots of authors have book sales in December as the holiday gift season rages on. Physical books make great gifts after all. Ebooks on the other hand are a little bit trickier to give. That’s why I decided to wait and have a post-holiday Kindle sale for anyone interested in discovering the darker side of 1920’s Paris with RADIO.
For the entire month of January, RADIO will be discounted to $1.99 in the USA, Canada, and Australia and will have similar discounts across all Kindle marketplaces.
If mind control, the gods of old, opium and jazz, suit your fancy, why not break out that shiny new gift card and treat yourself to your own copy of RADIO. There’s never been a better time to buy.
Today, I’m excited to announce something I’ve had in the works for quite some time now. Something that I hope will not only be fun but also enlightening. I’m officially launching my international social media book tracking experiment #WheresRADIO using little libraries, bookboxes, neighborhood libraries, lending libraries, or any of the many names for the small, free libraries where people can access books for free.
The goal of this experiment is to explore how books move into, out of, and around communities using RADIO as a guinea pig as well as provide free access to my book for people who might not be able to afford it. Here’s how it works.
With the help of friends around the world, I’ll be placing numerous copies of RADIO into these free libraries with a sticker on the cover showing #WheresRADIO and another inside with instructions on how to participate. If the reader decides to help out, they’ll just need to take the book to a new, free location, take a picture of that location, and leave the book for someone else to discover. Then they’ll post those pictures to Instagram or Twitter using #WheresRADIO. I’ll then repost/retweet to help my followers in that area know that the book is nearby. If they choose not to participate, they can just put it back where they found it for the next reader to enjoy.
As of today, the first copy is available at Wasserwerkstrasse 93 in Zürich, Switzerland. Click the link for map directions. I’m excited to see who’ll stumble across my little tale of mind control and mythology.
