6 Books from JA Konrath Blog

I found this on the twitter earlier today.

Not only does JA Konrath talk about the construction of an eBook, he's got 7 of them for free.

3 from him, 2 from Blake Crouch, 2 from Barry Eisler.

If he's giving Eisler a seal of approval, he's probably awesome, I've not heard of him, but will be giving them a chance.

Thanks. You miscounted by the way. It's 7 books not 6.

Correction the author seems to have miscounted.

Thanks, jhempel24!
I appreciate that you linked to the author's blog, rather than directly to the Amazon pages. I already had most of these books, but I really enjoyed reading Konrath's blog. It's obvious that he's considered carefully the full "reader's experience" in the design and assembly of an ebook. He discusses some pet peeves I have about the presentation of ebooks, and how he handles them; and solutions to presentation problems that I hadn't even been bothered by (but will be, now that his suggestions have been offered). I also like that he makes a point of praising those who help him turn out the type of presentation he wants.

Konrath has one of those "must read" blogs in my opinion...he's got some good views on things.

Now one man must face the entire Chicago Outfit, a group of hardened Mafia enforcers, a psychotic bookie, the most dangerous hitman on earth, and Detective Jacqueline Daniels...

His name is Tequila. And he likes those odds.
