If you like dark observational social meanderings and aren't up yourself then you will love this book - it's just gone up now!

Do you have some commercial connection with this book?

"Free" does not mean "in the public domain". I would like to know someone's reason for joining MR specifically to tell us about a newly-released book.

I suspect Jill and Anna are one in the same and this is an attempt to get herself published. Nothing wrong with that IMO so long as it's free.

My $0.02

As you say, nothing wrong with that, but it would be more honest to say "I am the author of this book", don't you think?

True but I'd be far more afraid/vulnerable posting my first book than going to beach in a new thong bikini.

Hopefully someone will post a kind review for us.

Yes, but commercial connection implies monetary gain and since it is free then there is none. I believe you mean "publicity." And she may not be the author simply an interested friend or relative, in which case there is no "dishonesty" intended as you imply.

Strangely enough, someone called "Jill Forest" has a blog here with a story of that same name posted to it. Draw your own conclusions...

Whoever the author is, be prepared to get blasted or praised if someone decides it's worth downloading. You don't write a book, publicize it, and live in a bubble-world.

I see I've "forgotten" to include my age, weight, and gender in my profile.

Marketing yourself by giving away a free book is a commercial task. If this person is the author, be forthright about it. We have several authors here whom have been promoted their work and been open about it. Two names come to mind, Jerry Carver and Steven Jordan.
