Beginning Monday, and for a very limited time, I’m giving away free downloads of the ebook versions of my first three books.

To take advantage of this offer, simply visit my Amazon author page during the first three days of this week and download electronic versions of my books per this schedule:

For 24 hours beginning just after 12:01 a.m. Monday, you can download the electronic book version of my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August: A U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier’s Fight For Military Justice (October 2011);

For 24 hours beginning just after 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, you can download the electronic book version of my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo (May 2013); and

For 24 hours beginning just after 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, you can download the electronic book version of my first crime-fiction novel, The National Bet (November 2014).

Of course, there are a few “catches” I can’t enforce: In exchange for the free books, I ask for your feedback about them — good, bad or ugly — as well as photos of yourself holding up your ebook reading device with my book cover(s) displayed on screen. In addition, I hope you’ll share your feedback on Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels. And beyond that, I hope you’ll purchase the paperback versions of the book — signed or unsigned — or support my work by clicking the donate button in the right sidebar of my website, BobMcCarty.com.

UPDATE 4/23/2015 at 7:40 a.m. Central: With barely 16 hours remaining on this free download offer, nearly 700 copies of the electronic versions of my books have been downloaded this week. Hurry to take advantage before time runs out!

UPDATE 4/24/2015 at 6:21 a.m. Central: The free downloads promotion ended at midnight with 898 free digital copies of my books being downloaded. I was surprised when my first crime-fiction novel, The National Bet, turned out to be almost twice as popular as my first nonfiction book, Three Days In August. I was even more surprised to see my second nonfiction book, The Clapper Memo, finish a distant third. Oh well, that’s how the cookie crumbles.

Bob McCarty’s Weekly Recap: Dec. 28-Jan. 3

Though it was, admittedly, a lighter-than-usual week at BobMcCarty.com, I think my offerings during the past seven days justify further attention in the weekly recap below:

Putting together jigsaw puzzles during the holidays would be more fun IF Butters, my office assistant, would help.

Putting together jigsaw puzzles during the holidays would be more fun IF Butters, my office assistant, would help.

One day after speculating about the cause of another Malaysia-owned jetliner’s disappearance, I began reading DIE TRYING by Lee Child Sunday, Dec. 28 and worked on a jigsaw puzzle with Butters, my office assistant.

On Monday, Dec. 29, I followed up a stimulating Facebook conversation by wondering if Bill Cosby might be innocent until proven guilty.

On Tuesday, Dec. 30, I raised a question — Does ‘Domestic Terrorism’ Label Apply to OKC Bombing? — before sharing news about a lawsuit filed by a fallen Marine’s family members.

On New Year’s Eve, I shared an excerpt from my first nonfiction book about a falsely-accused and wrongly-convicted Army Green Beret before going to bed at 10:30 p.m. on New Year’s Eve.

I began Day One of the New Year by sharing video about a four-year investigation into a “policing for profit” scam in Tennessee and followed up by sharing the latest review of my just-released crime-fiction novel, The National Bet.

Though I spent most of the day Friday, Jan. 2, working on my next fiction novel, a sequesl to The National Bet, I found time to share some college football championship humor aimed primarily at folks from my home state, Oklahoma.

Unless something pressing comes up Saturday, Jan. 3, I’ll spend most of my working hours in much the same fashion as I did the day before.

If you appreciate the unique perspective I provide and would like to help keep me afloat for another year, please show your support by ordering copies of my books and encouraging others to do the same. Thanks in advance!

Posted by verified Amazon customer Amy Daniels, the 5-star review reads as follows:

“McCarty ingeniously builds a plot involving a national mass murder and takes you deep into the FBI investigation. He weaves a keen knowledge of changing technology, current political turmoil and real past events to nudge you into a possible future with his star character, Special Agent Joe-L Wilson. I hope to see more of Special Agent Wilson and I will be back if McCarty decides to make this a series. Exciting from beginning to end, I highly recommend this novel!”
