Intra-Day Bulletin to Update to iPad-Compatible Daily Free Book Alert: The Irish Devil and God Don't Like Ugly

God Don

iPad-Compatible Free Book Alert for Monday, May 31: A Nice Excerpt from Brad Herzog's new road memoir Turn Left At The Trojan Horse, Home To Italy (#1 in Kindle Erotica), and Dozens More

Kensington Publishing Company has a new Kindle Store freebie this morning: a lengthy excerpt from Brad Herzog's new road memoir Turn Left At The Trojan Horse. At 936 "locations," this is over 5 times the length of a Kindle sample, and the full-length book is available for pre-order here until its release on Tuesday. The book is being billed as On the Road meets Eat, Pray, Love, if you can get your head around that combination. Kirkus Reviews says "Herzog's third travel memoir follows the highways cross-country examining the idea of the hero along the way. He captures stunning details of the American landscape. The hero's return, is irresistible...a near-perfect ending."

At a party Saturday evening, I met an author who has published several of her novels with Kensington, Robin Reardon, and I told her she was very well positioned for the ebook revolution because Kensington, a successful New York-based independent publishing company, is light years ahead of dinosaurs like Penguin Pearson in understanding how to connect with ebook readers. Much more on this later, but let me just mention that Penguin, coincidentially, is the publisher of the two books mentioned above in that On the Road meets Eat, Pray, Love comparison, and both of the Penguin titles are terribly overpriced in their Kindle editions since Penguin established its new predatory pricing plan under the agency model.

"Eric von Hippel has a penchant for identifying important aspects of technological innovation that run contrary to conventional wisdom and to the thrust of conventional scholarship. His work on the important role that users, rather than suppliers, play in the advance of technology casts the process in a new light. This book is an intellectual feast."
—Richard R. Nelson, George Blumenthal Professor of International and Public Affairs, Business, and Law, Columbia University

"Eric von Hippel has written a genuinely important book on innovation. Combining a wealth of case studies and data with a clear and systematically developed theoretical framework, Democratizing Innovation turns much of how we think about innovation economics on its head. Von Hippel has provided us with a fascinating book that will challenge innovation theorists and businesses alike."
—Yochai Benkler, Professor of Law, Yale Law School

Here's a quick free read (or text-to-speech listen) for your commute, just a little something to whet your appetite for the full release of J.A. Konrath's latest Jack Daniels mystery, Shaken, which will be published initially in a Kindle exclusive by AmazonEncore this Fall and is available, at least for now, at a pre-order price of $2.99. I don't ordinarily include many "free samples" in the Kindle Nation Daily Free Book Alerts because many of them are just trying to game the bestseller lists through the redundancy of offering something that is already free as a Kindle Store free sample. But when a teaser like Konrath's comes out while the full ebook is still in its unreleased pre-order state, as in this case, a worthwhile purpose is served.
