The February book is up.

Witchmark by C. L. Polk
Quote:
In an original world reminiscent of Edwardian England in the shadow of a World War, cabals of noble families use their unique magical gifts to control the fates of nations, while one young man seeks only to live a life of his own.

Magic marked Miles Singer for suffering the day he was born, doomed either to be enslaved to his family’s interest or to be committed to a witches’ asylum. He went to war to escape his destiny and came home a different man, but he couldn’t leave his past behind. The war between Aeland and Laneer leaves men changed, strangers to their friends and family, but even after faking his own death and reinventing himself as a doctor at a cash-strapped veterans’ hospital, Miles can’t hide what he truly is.

When a fatally poisoned patient exposes Miles’ healing gift and his witchmark, he must put his anonymity and freedom at risk to investigate his patient’s murder. To find the truth he’ll need to rely on the family he despises, and on the kindness of the most gorgeous man he’s ever seen.
Get it before the end of the day Friday Feb 15 (Eastern Time).

Thanks, this link goes straight to the download page. Although, in typical Tor fashion, they can't make it simple. Entering my e-mail address resulted in an e-mailed link, which was basically the same URL with a very short addition. Then that new page required me to enter my e-mail address again, and after all those steps finally gave me the download links.

I know I'm cynical, but stuff like that gives me the impression Tor really doesn't want anyone to download these free ebooks.

I'm cynical too, but I think they don't want people to share non-specific links with people not on their subscription lists. They want those email addresses to pester nag encourage people to buy more of their products.

If you're on the mailing list already, the process is quite simple. Click on the link in your email. The page you're on will allow you to either a) sign up or b) confirm your email if you've already signed up. Once you confirm, you get to the page with the link.

Considering what Tor charges for their ebooks I find the reward is worth the effort.

Thanks

...but what a pain to download. Confirm my email, go to my email, open the sent email, click on the link, confirm my email, download the book.

Unfortunately, that process doesn't always work. Last month, all I had to do was confirm my email and I was taken directly to the download page. Not so this month. Tor wanted me to jump through the hoops this time before cutting loose with the book.

But hey, it's free and I'm grateful for that

It varies for me too. Some months direct to download page. Some months multiple email entry/steps. But I agree - free is free, and either way it's less work than it takes to make the money to pay the bill if I buy it...

(Actually, I'm not totally sure of that, since my work is not too bad, and fighting with data entry on websites is a pain, but WTH, you get the point )

I had to verify my email after clicking the link in the email. But then again, it is worth it for a free Tor eBook.
