Download Shatnerquake for Free! – Today Only!

To you, brave pirate of the digital seas,

Thank you for devoting some of your precious internet tubing to the downloading of my first book, Shatnerquake.

You may be wondering why I am offering my book for free.  It is because I am an avid downloader as well.  I believe that information, art, and entertainment wants to be free.

The internet has allowed us all so many opportunities to share with each other.  To resist this is to resist the future.  Others may attempt to block this forward progression with lawsuits and file protection.  I, instead, want to do what I can to contribute to this wonderful digital community.

So, thanks for downloading and taking an interest in my work.  If you like the book, please take a few minutes to write a quick review on or Goodreads.  Or post about it on your blog or favorite message board.  Hell, just tell your friends about it the next time you are drinking together.

These small actions really do a lot to help out independent artists.  And in this era of crushing multi-national conglomerates and economic strife, we independents can use all the help we can get.

And if you don’t like the book, at least you didn’t have to pay for it.

Yours in downloading,

Jeff Burk

  3. This is awesome, Jeff. I’ll probably do something similar. A guy actually found his way to my band’s site from Barry Adamson’s, he liked the music, and paid me the greatest compliment: he asked about my writing, and said he wished that my books were on the torrent sites so he could get them now and pay me when he had the chance. Oh, brave new world…

    Thank you so much! By doing this you have enabled me to get my copy of Shatnerquake back from my coworker that I lent it to like months ago and now he can just read it on his computer 🙂

  5. Jeff –
    I’ve downloaded your book and will check it out as soon as it works its way to the top of my “to read” list…in the meantime, please check out my Indie Call To Action, here:

    It’s all about indies helping indies to raise awareness of one another’s books. And please spread the word to indies far and wide. I learned of your book from a tweet; off to RT for you now!

    The rapidshare link seems to be borked (on their end.) The other works, though.

    Thanks so much for this! I’ve wanted to check it out since I heard about it.

    Hey, Jeff,
    Thanks for the download! I’m sorry I can’t afford to donate to you, but I have the same deal going on my science fiction novel, Home Is Not Home. Write me if you’re interested in leaving a review on my Amazon page 🙂 and I’ll send you a free copy.
    I’ll leave the review on Amazon when I finish it. We starvin’ Indie publishers have to stick together.

    Thanks Again,
    Dannis [up soon after registrar/host change]

    Awesome. Wil Weaton is pimping it on his blog and twitter, and I’ve now started spreading it around here at Yahoo! corp. Good luck!

  14. Woman on the Verge says:

    Okay, totally bummed ’cause I want the download but the sites are fighting me. Grrrr. No Shatnerquake for me.

  15. Emma says:

    Rapidshare has no more slots for free users. Boo!

  16. Otto says:

    Ugh. Any chance of a link that’s NOT on one of those worthless file sharing sites? Those things are blocked at pretty much every workplace in the nation. 😦

  17. mhaithaca says:

    Downloaded. Read first line. Donated. Thanks for daring to share, Jeff!

  18. Chuck Wilton says:

    I tried to download from Amazon on my Kindle. They wanted to charge me $5.95. What up wit dat?

  19. Trisha Lynn says:

    Not only did I throw in a few bucks in your tip jar, I also blogged about it. Can’t wait to read after I leave the office… or maybe during my lunch break right now!

  20. Angela Matney says:

    Hi. Thanks for making your book available as a free download. Unfortunately, not everyone will be able to access the download because of the captchas on rapidshare and megaupload. Would you consider putting this on or another file-sharing service that does not require the user to solve a captcha? I’m blind, and I’d very much like to download your book. Some of my blind friends probably would, too. But the captchas really do present a barrier to us. Thanks for considering this request.

  21. Angela Matney says:

    I apologize–I did not realize that rapidshare had removed the captcha requirement. I’m downloading it now.

  22. David Craigmile says:

    I just got the nod about your new book Shatnerquake, in a recent tweet from Wil Wheaton; and would be happy to provide a humble review after my read.

    Congratulations on your new-found success!

    Namaste’ – David Craigmile

    I updated the rapidshare link – so that should be working fine now. I also added a Send Space link for another option.

    Thank you to everybody who has downloaded, reposted, tweeted, blogged about, and donated today.

    There’s still almost eight hours left so keep spreading the word!

    Thank you for the opportunity!

    Tried all three sites to download. One required payment to join to get the free download. The other two downloads caused an error with Adobe Reader.

    Sigh! Story of my life!!

  31. Charlene Dev says:

    Missed Shatner by that much. Posting a link to the other books, however, in my groups.

    Darn! I missed this one, but thanks for posting the new books today.

    Bugga …

    “Sorry! The Free Download time is over.”?!

    That’s what I get for living in a future timezone, and not reading my wilwheaton RSS feed assiduously.


  34. Robbie says:
