The Hangman game created by BookBuzzr authors and readers has become tremendously popular. We now have over 450 Hangman word games on Freado.com
making Freado one of the world's largest repositories of Hangman word games. When we launched Freado.com as a place for book lovers to win daily prizes, many were skeptical because they could not believe that one could win books and prizes so easily. Now, with hundreds of winners and tens of thousands of monthly visitors, book readers are spreading the word about Freado with an almost religious zeal. Here's what some of the prize winners on Freado.com are saying:
"I like Freado.com because it's easy and fun. It has good games and the prizes are great also.It is a lot of fun and the prizes are a nice extra." - Mary Hampton, winner of the Kindle for June.
"I Love fReado! Playing the Cover Matcher game is so fun, and winning free books is amazing!" - Stefanie Clark, recent winner of an Amazon Gift Certificate.
"This is a place I can see new authors and buy or win a copy of thier book. I love to read and this is a wonderful place to find books without being overwhelmed with too many books at once and the book choices are great." - Stacia Sikorski, recent winner of a book.
So as an author, how does all this help you?

How to Launch Your Book Like Timothy Ferriss:
Tim Ferriss is a book marketing genius. He launched his book – The Four Hour Body
in December 2010. The book quickly rose up the charts to become a top selling book on the New York Times list. It eventually displaced the Guiness Book of World Records at the top of the best seller heap. Now, Tim Ferriss is offering his book marketing secrets through a seminar at a cost of $10,000 per participant. While we cannot get you to the event (we are not acquainted with Tim Ferriss), we did the next best thing we could. The BookBuzzr team deconstructed Tim's book launch strategy based on the material available on his blogs and put together a special "unofficial" report. To access this report, simply login to your BookBuzzr account, click on the BookBuzzr Library and download the PDF. Please do not share this report with others as this is meant for private circulation (for BookBuzzr Author Pro subscribers) only.
