Re: 10/8/2013 - Updated "Limited Time" Freebie List

Please forgive my ignorance, but how is it possible for a pirated copy to be placed in the B&N store?

Re: 10/8/2013 - Updated "Limited Time" Freebie List

It looks like it was placed on Archive.Org (where apparently anyone can place something for download) and then listed with B&N (by an individual, not the publisher;similar to the way PubIt works). The listing points to the download at archive.org and probably worked for the first people that tried it, until archive.org deleted the listing.

 

Who knows how long ago that was (or why B&N doesn't delete the listings), but I've seen this several times in the B&N store. I was on a tablet earlier and could not follow the links, as I just did.

 

Anyway, those who tried to get this particular books should just delete it from their library (you can't read it, so the entry is just cluttering your listings), as I just did.

Thanks for the clarification. I wonder why BN doesn't remove these inappropriate listings.

Savage Destiny (The Hearts of Liberty Series, Book 1)

 

by Phoebe Conn

Publisher: ePublishing Works!

 

Hunter is a Seneca brave and a renown scout for the Virginia Militia. But a white-woman's betrayal sent him back to his Seneca ways, with a vow to never return.
 
Alanna Barclay lost her family in an Indian raid. When her cousin gives birth to a half-breed baby, then dies, Alanna faces a choice: turn her back on the motherless child or convince his Seneca father to claim the babe as his own.
 
Hunter wants nothing to do with the infant; a painful remainder of his white-mother's betrayal. But Alanna's compassion and bravery is seeping into Hunter's heart, forcing him to face a love he'd rather deny.

Darkness Before Dawn  

 

Overview
On the same night she discovers she is pregnant, twenty-eight-year-old nurse Meg
Richards’ husband is killed in an auto accident caused by a drunken teen. James
Thomas, the teen, comes from one of the most influential families in the community.
He’s a star athlete and glamour boy at the local high school. Angered by her senseless loss, Meg blames God for what has happened and considers a decision that could change her life even further—until the D.A. intervenes.
The results of the brutal trial enrage Meg, leading her down a frightening path of retribution. When the opportunity for revenge comes unexpectedly, will Meg follow through? Or will the remnants of her faith lead her in a different direction?

Nook Snaps Original (freebie) published 10/10/2013 - The 3D Printed Gun

The 3D Printed Gun  

 

 

 

 

The first publication to tell the full story of Cody Wilson and the 3D-printed gun, from the early days of Defense Distributed to the testing of printed rifle magazines, the launch of the Liberator gun, and the political controversy that followed. Built from journalist Kyle Chayka’s series of exclusive interviews with Wilson as well as his collaborators and opponents, the ebook analyzes how the gun has changed the future of 3D printing by attracting media attention and government regulation.

Re: 10/8/2013 - Updated "Limited Time" Freebie List

I wonder if this is why one of my companies books is listed on B&N? I emailed B&N and never received a response from them. As we did not authorize the distribution of any of our books to online retailers. We run our own bookstore, with both softcover and e-books.......

@lunatikchik
1. You are not posting this info in the correct forum (if this is true).
2. If you have a company and did not authorize distribution then you need your companies lawyer to contact the legal and distribution depts at BN to find out who submitted the book to BN.

It appears as though you do not know how to run a business...

That's a Great Question  

That's a Great Question: What to Say When Your Faith Is Questioned

Is the Bible really true? How can I prove it? This book is especially helpful for newer Christians just coming to grips with the implications of the gospel in all areas of their lives.

 

What do you say when someone at work asks you why the gospel stories differ? How do you answer your neighbor when she asks what you think about all those "errors" in the Bible? Glenn Pearson offers simple, accessible principles that provide any Christian with the tools he or she needs to confidently respond to skeptical inquiries.
