Want a Free Audio Book?

Now that the entire Echoes from the Edge series is available, I hope you'll help me spread the word about it. Here are some ways you can do that, and with a couple of these, I will give you a way to download the Beyond the Reflection's Edge audio book for free.

#1. Write an email to your contacts and ask them to pass your note along to others. Here is some suggested text.

"The Echoes from the Edge series by best-selling author Bryan Davis is an exciting, action-packed adventure/fantasy that's great for anyone 13 and up. If you like mystery and suspense, you'll love this book. The author is selling autographed copies of the first book, Beyond the Reflection's Edge, for only $5 plus shipping. Here is a link for that deal: http://www.daviscrossing.com/BTRE.htm. Here is the series website: http://www.echoesfromtheedge.com. You can also get it at any online bookstore. Please pass this note along to your contacts. I would love to see others have the opportunity to read this exciting series."

If you create such an email and send it out, please let me know. If your email goes out to at least fifty people, I will send you a code that will allow you to download the audio book for free.

#2. If you have a way to get a review printed in a newspaper, church bulletin, magazine, or any other publication and would like a free copy of the first book for the purpose of reviewing, please contact me by replying to this newsletter and letting me know.

#3. Post the trailer for Nightmare's Edge on your blog, Facebook, Myspace, or any other Internet presence you have. Here is the link for the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NNo6lhmC0cE

#4. Talk about the series with your friends through all your social contact avenues--school, church, online. If you will do that and want bookmarks to give away, please reply to this newsletter and ask me about getting bookmarks. I'll give you as many as you think you might need.

#5. Buy a few copies of the first book to give away or sell. Since you can buy them for $5 each, you might even make a profit. Anyone who orders will also receive the free download.

I appreciate your help. If you do any of these, please let me know how it goes.

Teaching at a Writers' Conference for Youth at Mississippi State

I will be teaching at the Expressive Arts Conference at Mississippi State University from July 21 to July 24. If you know a teenager who would like a week of intensive writing training, please let him or her know about this conference.

Click Here for a flier describing the conference, and click here for the registration form.

This is the least expensive writers' conference I have seen for a long time. I hope some of you are able to take advantage of it.

Nightmare's Edge Comments

I'm receiving some very nice comments about Nightmare's Edge.

It. Was. AMAZING!! Twists and turns all over the place... kept me on edge... it was absolutely AMAZING.

I really enjoyed it. Definitely a fast pace thriller. I didn't want to put it down!

Awesome finish! I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

This book is an exciting mix of love, classical music, otherworldly tech, and solid Christian values! Five stars.

I hope everyone gets a chance to read the series. You can still buy the entire series from me for only $30 plus shipping at this link.

Dragons Audio Books now on CD

The four Dragons in our Midst audio books are now available in the traditional CD format. Before now, the audio books were in single-disk, MP3 format. That was great for playing on computers and copying them to MP3 devices, but they wouldn't function on many normal CD players.

Since the package has up to 10 disks instead of one, the price is higher, but the convenience of being able to listen to them on the old players might be worth it for many. The list price for a CD set is $39, but I am selling each set for $25 or all four sets for $88.

Click here for my shopping page. If you have any questions, please leave a comment.
