Wowio is giving away the e-book version of Daniel A. Rabuzzi‘s recent YA novel The Choir Boats, a fantasy that starts out in London in 1812 and the world of Yount in the Year of the Owl. Published by ChiZine, “an independent publisher of weird, surreal, subtle, and disturbing dark literary fiction”, it certainly sounds an exciting read. Daniel writes:
The Choir Boats was selected by January Magazine as a Top Ten YA Novel for 2009. Reviewers describe it as “Gulliver’s Travels crossed with The Golden Compass and a dollop of Pride and Prejudice,” and “a muscular, Napoleonic-era fantasy that, like Philip Pullman’s Dark Materials series, will appeal to both adult and young adult readers.”
This special edition of the novel includes bonus illustrations by Deborah A. Mills. It’s also DRM-free, so it can be read on any device compatible with PDFs, and shared with friends just like a regular book.
The free download is only available for the month of July so if you’re interested, you’ll need to hurry…
