The Many Wonders of Costa Contente - FREE DOWNLOAD

I will be running a free download promo of my book, The Many Wonders of Costa Contente, on April 10th & 11th.

One reviewer on Amazon had this to say:

"This is a book of stories, woven into the tapestry of a different community, but one similar to where I once lived in and called home. This theme should be familiar to anyone who lived somewhere outside of their community or familiarity where they where raised. I loved reading this. The author paints with her words the folklore of a small town. As I read the stories, I saw the community that had been there for generations, rich in its history. It took me back to when I lived in a small village in Brazil, every one knew a common but embellished history. But in this book you see history as it happens, it becomes real. One line I could particularly relate to was about some past experiences of a character named Zequinho, relating to memories, "that was so long ago that it now felt like something he had read in a book, not really experienced". I was caught in that place, between reality and imagination, and had the feeling of "yes"... it did happened. I could feel, see, and smell it as if it was only yesterday. Beautifully written, words painting new, but somewhat familiar images, giving life to faded memories."
I really want more people to read it, and am happy to give away copies. This time I hope people really are interested in reading it rather than simply downloading a copy because it is there.
And if you'd like to post a short review, it would be greatly appreciated.
