Want some cheap Kindle scifi books?

July 22, 2016 Rob 1

I love to read. I also love to get books for super-cheap. As a result, I’m always on the lookout for deals on Kindle books.

If you’re not in the U.S. and you’d like to get a copy of The Big Sheep, please fill out this form to let my publisher know! The more people who express an interest, the better the odds of getting an edition […]
