Authors Against Book Piracy Blog Tour: Day Five

Welcome to day five of the authors against piracy book tour. The point of this tour is to draw awareness to the problem of ebook piracy and to show would-be pirates that there are plenty of places to get free (or cheap), legitimate, legal books. Each day an author (or authors) will be giving away book(s) for free, so be sure to stop by every day this week for some great freebie reads!  And be sure to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway for a chance to win a 20$ Amazon gift card!

If each of those pirated books was priced at the median $2.99 price, that would mean that $2.8 billion would represent 936,454,849 books. In other words, every book published in 2009 (a total of 1,052,803 as reported by Bowker) could have been pirated 889 times EACH.

FREE BOOK OF THE DAY:

 Last Sunrise & Other Stories by Simon Goodson

last_sunrise_free-186x300

They say you always remember your first. Every moment. Every glance. Every touch. Everything that either of you said. And it’s true. I’ve never forgotten the first woman I slept with. Or the first person I killed. But then, they were both the same night, both in the same place…both were the same person. (First One)

When Angels return to the control room for the first time in over five hundred years they get a shock. Rather than reverting and losing the ability to create fire again, mankind has made immense leaps forward. Find out how the Angels react. (Everyone Out)

Thrown back in time to 1978 I find myself re-living decades of time. Knowing what is to come creates both opportunities and immense pain. (Déjà Vu)

When a test flight goes wrong and reaches a previously unknown level of hyperspace the crew make an amazing discovery. Wounds that should kill heal almost instantly with no pain. As members of the crew carry out ever more extreme tests Captain Shana starts to suspect that all is not well. (Test Flight)
