Patterico's Pontifications


Announcing The Great Kerry Frey Book Giveaway

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:54 pm

It’s Christmastime, and maybe some young adult in your family is a reader who likes adventures involving time travel, history, and good clean fun. If so, you might be interested in Shadow of the Flag (A Young Ace Roberts Adventure Book) by my brother Kerry Frey. Read the book and you’ll learn more about Jules Verne and the Civil War. I won’t say more than that.

As a thank-you to my readers, I am funding a giveaway of the Kindle version of the book. Any subscriber is entitled to claim a free copy. In addition, the first 25 readers who email me a request for the book will receive it, absolutely free.

Here’s what you have to do: email me at patterico AT gmail DOT com. Put “Shadow of the Flag” in the subject line. In the email, provide with with an email address that you have a Kindle or a Kindle app registered to. (You don’t need a Kindle to use a Kindle app.) Typically, that will be the email address that you use to access your Amazon account. (If you are giving the book to someone else, provide an email address that their Kindle or Kindle app is registered to.) When you send me the request, make sure to tell me that the email address you are providing is the one you have a Kindle app registered to (or that your recipient does), so I know I am not wasting 5 bucks.

If you want to get it on your own, that is the cost: 5 bucks, through the link above. I want to do something to give back to you — and get people reading my brother’s book, which really is a great yarn.

All I ask is that you spread the word if you enjoy it. Merry Christmas.

P.S. Kerry’s first book was Buried Lie (a Young Ace Roberts Adventure). Also recommended.

  6. DRJ,

    They remind me of Hardy Boys books. I would say ages 11-14? In addition to the historical references, one thing that distinguishes them from other adventure books of this type is their unabashed Christianity. Prayer and faith are key themes in the books.

  7. Terrific. I read Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys when I was growing up, and this is perfect for several kids in my neighborhood.

  10. I already bought 4 and will probably buy 4 more for some younger kids who love to read. I was looking for something special to give my young neighbors. Thank you for posting this.

  11. Thank you everyone (especially my brother) for the interest in my books. I’m told that both young and old enjoy reading them, especially those who grew up in the 1960’s and fantasized about living through some wild (non drug related) adventures. I have spoken at middle schools and have had interest from some 9th grade campuses as well. So Patrick is right on age-wise.

  12. I’ve got too many things on my To Read list right now, but I wishlisted these for when I’m ready to add more.
