Free Books from Fictionwise no-so-free?
« on: May 14, 2009, 07:17:14 am »
25 different and free ebooks:

(I have yet to download one but will soon)

Are these ones really free? I went to the link, selected a few of the titles and then was prompted for a way to pay $.50 since my order was less than $5.00.

Anyone else try this and get them for "free"?

    $.50 is added to any purchase under $5 at Fictionwise if you choose PayPal.  Try again but click on the button that says "check out" to the right of "Micropay" and see if that ammends the problem.   :)

    Yeppers.  That is the way to do it, just click Check Out.  I just downloaded with no problem.

    I'm sorry.  I don't know! That's strange they originally said free?

    But I guess frojazz got it free, right?

    Yes, I tried clicking on the Micropay checkout button, too, that worked!

    Yes, and you can too!  Just don't pick paypal as your option to pay.
