Join the Wanted Hero Fan Club, Get 4 Free Books

Friend and BaBB reader +Jaime Buckley of +WantedHero.com has been working on a site redesign for the past 4 months. Today is the day of the relaunch, and the result is outstanding. It's one of the most beautiful, custom websites I've ever seen.

Check out Jaime's work at the link below, and while you're there pick up 2 FREE books he's written. No sign-up required. But if you do want to sign up and join his Fan Club (and I highly recommend you do so), you'll get two more books absolutely free.

Jaime is one of the kindest and most talented people I know. If you have a kid (or kid at heart) who loves to read, you need to introduce them to Jaime.

Good luck with the relaunch, my friend. I hope it's an awesome one!

https://wantedhero.com/

#freebooks #wantedhero #siterelaunch
Readers are gasping, ducking and laughing their heads off to CHRONICLES OF A HERO the best kept secret in fantasy! Visit the website for quizzes, games and a FAN CLUB with FREE books!!
