Giving Away a Year's Work: Read The Superuser Free Now through Sunday
by Katie Dozier | Published: Apr 27, '12
Less than a day after posting my staking package for the WSOP + VDS in the marketplace forum, 2+2 went down. Their official statement is:
“Two Plus Two Forum Outage
On April 26th at approximately 11:20 AM pacific time, the Two Plus Two Forums were closed as a result of a hacker who has displayed the ability to access e-mail addresses and encrypted passwords. He also indicated the ability to decrypt passwords.
While it is unclear the extent of data to which he gained access, e-mail addresses and passwords on the Two Plus Two forums should be considered compromised. If you have used your 2+2 password on any other site, you are advised to change it.
For your security, we are closing the forums until the breach is patched. Upon reopening the forums you will be forced to change your password – it is counterproductive to do so now.
We hope to be back up as soon as possible.”
Needless to say, the forum being temporarily closed has made me realize that I spend even more time on 2+2 than I thought!
I’m hopeful that 2+2 will be up and running again soon, but there have been many tweets about people being a bit bored without Two Plus Two. I’m giving away my poker thriller eBook, The Superuser for free through the weekend.
Here’s the book’s description:
“When a punk poker superstar loses millions in a mysterious game, he hires disgraced champion and ex-cop Grisham Stark to investigate. As Stark confronts cold-blooded players in Monte Carlo and Las Vegas, he realizes his one shot at redemption is to catch the most dangerous poker cheat of all time: the Superuser.
Behind the scenes, a politician is hijacking the scandal to wage a legislative battle in Washington. A beautiful female player is blackmailed into hiding a deadly secret that threatens to unravel the entire deception, and the ruthless Superuser is killing anyone who dares stand in his way.
Grisham Stark will ultimately face a terrifying question: Is the Superuser’s final goal far more than money?”
Since this question has come up a lot, I’d like to point out that one doesn’t need a kindle to read free Amazon ebooks; it is possible to read it on your PC, Mac, smartphone, or tablet by downloading the free app for your device here.
It feels a bit funny to give away something that my husband and I spent the better part of a year working on, but we’re hopeful that offering it for free this weekend will allow it to reach a new audience and have increased success in the future. Hope you enjoy the book! :)
