Win a free copy of my new book

I'm giving away 15 free copies of Madness: The War of 1812. To win one, go to Goodreads where you can sign up to be eligible.

I'm hope that by giving away these books for a few weeks that I'll increase sales by word-of-mouth, which is the best way of promoting books. Feedback from people who have already read it tell me that it's a fast, enjoyable and informative read about a little remembered, most botched but one of America's most important wars. If you like it, please recommend it or "like" it on Amazon.

The offer ends Jan. 18.
