US Kindle free book: Valley Forge [PREVIEW ONLY]

Valley Forge by William R. Forstchen & Newt Gingrich
Valley Forge is a compelling, meticulously researched tour-de-force novel about endurance, survival, transformation, and rebirth. It chronicles the unique crucible of time and place where Washington and his Continental Army, against all odds, were forged into a fighting force that would win a revolution and found the United States of America.

A free preview of 464 pages though....I reckon that might even be the full book.

The listing for all of McMillan's previews (and the prequel short story which clearly indicates it is not the full book) show the same number of pages as the print edition, as does the pre-order page for the full book. It's pretty obviously an error (probably an intentional one) by the publisher, who fills the info out (and sets the prices, in this case).

But file size only 5K. So either that or the page count is incorrect for what is being offered here. I'd go with Karen on this one.

Generally, all of the pre-orders say 5K (but, I've seen them claim over 2M). Until the book actually "ships", I think Amazon just uses a placeholder size (I've also had one recent freebie claim 11K, but end up being the entire book; later in the day, Amazon updated the file size to closer to a meg in size).

In any case, all of these from Macmillan today say 5k and claim the same number of pages as the full book. I'd expect 3 samples and one short story, for those that order them (as I said on my blog yesterday). I didn't post them here, as I generally ignore the samples - would people prefer that I post these here, as well?

NO! It would just pollute with waters.
