Free Ebook (PDF) - Brian James Freeman's The Painted Darkness

Download at http://www.downloadthedarkness.com/

Message from the publisher:

Quote:
Cemetery Dance Publications will publish The Painted Darkness by Brian James Freeman in hardcover this fall, but for a limited time only we're giving the book away for free as an eBook and as a streaming audiobook to anyone who wants to check it out early!
About the Book:

Quote:
When Henry was a child, something terrible happened in the woods behind his home, something so shocking he could only express his terror by drawing pictures of what he had witnessed. Eventually, Henry's mind blocked out the bad memories, but he continued to draw, often at night by the light of the moon.

Twenty years later, Henry makes his living by painting his disturbing works of art. He loves his wife and his son, and life couldn't be better... except there's something not quite right about the old stone farmhouse his family now calls home. There's something strange living in the cramped cellar, in the maze of pipes that feed the ancient steam boiler.

A winter storm is brewing, and soon Henry will learn the true nature of the monster waiting for him down in the darkness. He will battle this demon and, in the process, he may discover what really happened when he was a child — and why, in times of trouble, he thinks: I paint against the darkness.

But will Henry learn the truth in time to avoid the terrible fate awaiting him... or will the thing in the cellar get him and his family first?

This PDF can be read on 6-inch ebookiuses, too.

Will wonders never cease? Is it possible some publishers are waking up? Stay tuned.

Yeah, surprisingly, the pdf looks very readable on 6-inch screens. It's even comfortably readable on the iPod Touch screen. The font is pretty big.

* The streaming audiobook onsite can actually be downloaded as an MP3, but it's not very pleasant to listen to.

It's also Wowio's Book of the Month this October, but it's still free from the book's website.

Wow, Thanks for the link! This looks good. Much better than the "Conan type" book that's offered free today over at B&N

Full title doesn't appear

Help please? I went to download the book and when I looked at my Nook on the My Docs list it says "ness" and underneath for author it just says, "man".

I deleted the file and tried again and the same thing appeared.

What am I doing wrong please? I am new to this and have ADE and Adobe Reader on my computer. The AR screen comes up but I didn't see any tab for downloading like I do for ADE.

I don't have an eReader yet, but would like to go ahead and save it. I tried to put it on ADE, but couldn't get it to work. Can someone tell me how to put it on ADE?

When I tried to put it in ADE, I got a message that ADE doesn't support password-protected files. But regular Adobe reader opened it with no problems.
