Double TroubleTee Morris and Philippa Ballantine are astonishing authors, amazing podcasters and entertaining marketers.

Make sure you are on Amazon.com on 08.08.08 to order these books, and make history!

You may ask youself, why are these authors giving away thier books for free? It doesn’t make sense. Well, very little that Tee does actually makes sense, but it this case, it’s perfectly reasonable. More and more authors are discovering the benefit of allowing readers to sample thier wares before making a purchase. Even Neil Gaiman saw an increase in his sales after releasing a free digital version of his novel American Gods. Publishing is changing. These authors, along with people like Cory Doctorow, Scott Sigler and others, are helping to bring the industry into the digital age. And that is the true magic.
