So for example:
-The Great Gastsby
-Murder on the Orient Express

All release types count ... wild, controlled, parachute ...

Release in the month of November, post your releases in this thread, and have fun!

I haven't set any aside, but I don't think it will be hard to find some the's. So I'm in.
Profile Image
although I don't think any will be released by parachute!
Profile Image
Surely someone will do it! :D

I'll do it! :D

Anyone here want to release some of my books by parachute for me? ;)
Profile Image
...but I'll be happy to play. :)
Profile Image
I'm in and already getting my books ready!
Profile Image
....but not of the parachute variety ;o)

LOVE that you include "parachute" release type, RockDg9...and that you're hosting again this year, as I have a few that will be part of a Veteran's Day release at the Veteran Adult Day Care Center. I'll refrain from releasing by drone. ; D
