Book 4: The Wild Country

[This is an out of character post. No LWtD post today. Instead I've copied the release post from for book 4. Read on, because I'm giving away stuff. You don't want to miss that, do you? I didn't think so.]

Okay, so here's the deal: Today I released the fourth book of Living With the Dead. I'm ludicrously happy with this volume, and I want people to read it.

The Wild Country, Living With the Dead book four. But read on. There's a test later.

Fourth in a series, you say. Yes, that would normally mean buying three other books to get there. Logic, that inescapable bastard.

AHA! I have a solution! How about I just GIVE AWAY the first three (well, sort of three) books in the series, so you get the best possible deal? Yeah. Let's do that.

So, starting Saturday morning and running through Wednesday, every Living With the Dead book (except the new one) will be free on the Kindle store. That includes:

With Spring Comes The Fall, book one.

The Bitter Seasons, book two.

Year One, which collects book one and two, plus has a TON of bonus material, including five short stories, a behind the scenes look at LWtD, and a whole novella set in the LWtD universe. It's a deal. Especially because it's free.

And The Hungry Land, book three.

Yes, Year One duplicates the material of the first two books. But hey, it's not like your kindle is gonna get full off that. It has all that juicy bonus material in it. So why not just download every freaking one of them?!

No good reason not to. Unless you already own them, in which case you should pat yourself on the back.

Then you can buy The Wild Country, book 4. I'm not telling you to by any means. But hey, it's four bucks. You get all those other books for free, so really if you bought this one you'd be averaging a dollar a book. I'm not telling you to buy it, but I *do* need a new pair of shoes.

I'm just sayin'. You don't want me to write with cold, unsupported arches, do you? That makes for terrible prose.

And hey, if you decide you want free stuff and don't want to buy the fourth book, that's okay too. I'm sure no kittens will suffer terrible mishaps because of it. No baby otters will be orphaned. You'll just be three books richer, and that makes me a happy camper.


  1. Thanks Josh,
    You are always giving your books away for free. I appreciate it even if I have already purchased them, but I have no problem helping support one of my favorite authors. Keep up the good work. I can't wait for the next blood divided book.

  2. Well, not *always*...but I do enjoy using the free promo days Kindle gives me for being exclusive to the Kindle store. I'm pretty jazzed that so many fans (having fans at all is still really weird for me) have said this same thing. I like giving books away, not only for the satisfaction of entertaining so many people, but also because doing so makes more folks aware of my work.

    And hey, you guys are awesome times a trillion. I give LWtD away every day here on the blog, but tons of you still plunk down your hard-earned bucks to show your support. I truly appreciate that in ways I can't put into words. I'm humbled by it.

    I can't wait for the next BD book either, which means I need to get off my ass and work on it some more.
