Free Science Fiction e-books

Patty Jansen is making some ebooks from her author contacts available free during February – the first ebook in several series is available on her blog for download through Amazon, Kindle, KOBO etc… obviously after reading and enjoying, one should return to pay for the subsequent books so that the authors don’t starve!

A really exciting opportunity to sample some great  writing.. (check out her blog for some useful authorly hints and tips too)

Thanks Patty, Kirsten, Mark, Al, Felicity and Chris!
