We have a winner on our giveaway of Fiona Robyn's new novel, Thaw!

Last week we presented Fiona Robyn's new novel, Thaw, and the unique offer of the author for readers to read it online for free. In celebration of the new novel we had a giveaway of a signed copy of Thaw, courtesy of the author, and we have a winner!

We asked you to share with us
what do you think about enabling readers to read a book for free online? Will it benefit the authors eventually? We got very interesting replies referring to e-publishing and its potential. And our winner is Jeannette who wrote the following:

I think that opening up a novel for readers to read online is basically a good thing, in that yes, I think it will attract new readers, and some of them will buy the book and other books by the same author. I worry though, that if people don't have to pay for things, they may not value them as much, or the work that goes into creating them. Time will tell... All of this is changing rapidly with the development of ebooks. It's a very exciting time to be writing and publishing.

Congrats, Jeannette! You will receive a copy signed by the author and one tree will be planted for it as well! Thank you also to all the other participants. We also like to remind you that we have now another giveaway going on - this time it's the new audiobook 'Story of Stuff'. You can read more details here.
