I have to apologize to any of my readers who visited the blog this weekend looking for free reads and went through some of the Freebie Friday books featured on the July 15th post, but found they were no longer priced as free or that the "SSWSF" code was reportedly invalid or expired. Specifically, it appears that Dan Holloway's books are no longer a part of the Smashwords site-wide promo and are not being offered for free anymore.
I've contacted Dan and asked him to explain whether this was in error (by Smashwords or himself) or intentional. I'll update this post once I hear back (as in, if Dan reinstitutes the promo code, I'll let you know so you can try again to download the books for free, or if not, I tell you what's going on).
As with any coupon codes or promos, you are always able to pay full-price for any book featured in any of my Freebie Friday blogs if you prefer to provide the author with a show of monetary support. Patronage of the arts (hoo-yah).
I apologize for any inconvenience this error in reporting has caused any of my readers. I was completely unaware of the misrepresentation until today, Sunday, July 17th, when I actually tried to download one of Dan's books, myself, to my iPad and couldn't. Accidents happen. Good thing I "accidentally" discovered this one!
