Update Offered About Opportunity to Boost My ‘Cool Factor’

Today, I can finally share an update about the long-awaited opportunity my three sons believe will increase my “cool factor” exponentially among young adults under 30.

In my weekly recap Nov. 15, I shared exciting news. I had been informed that a film crew from Los Angeles would be visiting my St. Louis-area home soon to interview me as part of a documentary project. At the time, I could not divulge many details, but I did tell my readers two things about the opportunity:  The findings I share inside my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo, would be the focus of the interview; and my appearance in the documentary would increase my “cool factor” exponentially among those in the young adult/under-30 crowd, according to my three sons, who ranged in age from 17 to 24 at the time.

Almost six months later, I’ve been informed of a plot twist: the interview will still take place, but it will be in a slightly different medium. Instead of airing on one of the highest-traffic online news websites, it will air as a segment on a news magazine program broadcast on one of the largest U.S.-based premium cable and satellite television networks. I don’t know whether or not it will appear on both media, but will share more firmed-up details as soon as they become available. Hopefully, it won’t take another six months.

If you can’t wait that to know what I’ll be talking about, learn more about my book by visiting http://TheClapperMemo.com or simply order a copy of The Clapper Memo now!

Beginning Monday, and for a very limited time, I’m giving away free downloads of the ebook versions of my first three books.

To take advantage of this offer, simply visit my Amazon author page during the first three days of this week and download electronic versions of my books per this schedule:

For 24 hours beginning just after 12:01 a.m. Monday, you can download the electronic book version of my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice (October 2011);

For 24 hours beginning just after 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, you can download the electronic book version of my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo (May 2013); and

For 24 hours beginning just after 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, you can download the electronic book version of my first crime-fiction novel, The National Bet (November 2014).

Of course, there are a few “catches” I can’t enforce: In exchange for the free books, I ask for your feedback about them — good, bad or ugly — as well as photos of yourself holding up your ebook reading device with my book cover(s) displayed on screen. In addition, I hope you’ll share your feedback on Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels. And beyond that, I hope you’ll purchase the paperback versions of the book — signed or unsigned — or support my work by clicking the donate button in the right sidebar of my website, BobMcCarty.com.

UPDATE 4/23/2015 at 7:40 a.m. Central: With barely 16 hours remaining on this free download offer, nearly 700 copies of the electronic versions of my books have been downloaded this week. Hurry to take advantage before time runs out!

UPDATE 4/24/2015 at 6:21 a.m. Central: The free downloads promotion ended at midnight with 898 free digital copies of my books being downloaded. I was surprised when my first crime-fiction novel, The National Bet, turned out to be almost twice as popular as my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August. I was even more surprised to see my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo, finish a distant third. Oh well, that’s how the cookie crumbles.
