Free (Kindle) Under the Olive Tree by Courtney Santo Miller [Literary Fiction]

Under the Olive Tree by Courtney Santo Miller appears to be some sort of tie-in short story to promote her upcoming literary/women's fiction novel, free courtesy of publisher HarperCollins.

Currently free to pre-order @ Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK, slated for July 24th).

Description
In a small town in Northern California, the olives are ripening and the Keller women, a multigenerational family of firstborn daughters, are preparing to send their youngest, Erin, abroad. Although she worries about forsaking her family, she is compelled to take a chance at living her dream.

A crisis the day before she is to leave makes Erin question her choice. Is it possible that before she can return to Hill House, she might lose one of her beloved grandmothers? Because, although she has three caretakers—Anna, her great-great-grandmother; Bets, her great-grandmother; and Callie, her grandmother—Erin has no mother. It is an absence keenly felt and never mentioned.

Under the Olive Tree offers a tantalizing glimpse into the secrets of the Keller women, which spill out in surprising and heartbreaking ways in the forthcoming novel The Roots of the Olive Tree. Enjoy this early taste!

This book shows as $0 on Amazon with pre-order button. However, the pre-order button directs me to a webpage for my credit card information. Is this normal for a pre-order?

IIRC, you need to have a CC on file with them for pre-orders, even $0 ones.

I'm not that interested but I'm glad I clicked through because I found this as a cross-sell on the page:

http://www.amazon.com/The-Rose-of-Fi...=AG56TWVU5XWC2

short story by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I loved loved loved Shadow of the Wind (but I disliked the sequel). I will try the short story for sure!
