Please do me a Favor

I know this isn't really a football-related post, but I was hoping Chiefsplanet could flex its muscles on my behalf.

Today and tomorrow (11/16-11/17) I'm running a free promotion for my Epic Fantasy novel (The Supreme Warrior) on Amazon.com. For two days, its free to download.

If people here would be willing to take the time to get this free download, even if you aren't interested in the epic fantasy genre, it could push me up Amazon bestseller lists which will help me reach my intended audience.

Here is the link:

Thanks to everyone.

Thanks to everyone so far. With the rest of Saturday to go (until midnight PST), my book has shot up the Amazon bestseller lists:

#9 Epic Fantasy
#18 in Mythology
#48 in Fantasy

and #831 on the Amazon Free Book list. Hitting the top 100 on Amazon lists is a big help in getting found on searches by customers. Hopefully, the free promotion will push me there for a number of days (Amazon ranks on a VERY short time-frame).

If you're having problems downloading it, you need 1) an Amazon account and if you want to actually read it you need 2) to download the Kindle reader software.

You do not need an actual Kindle to read it. You can do so on any computer, smartphone or tablet device.

Thanks again.

I have also designed a paperback version which will be priced at 9.99 and will be available from Amazon soon, but I'm finalizing the layout.

After the 90 day exclusive period, I'll put it up on smashwords, which will create versions available on virtually any ebook platform (including the apple store).

However, you don't need an actual kindle to read a kindle book. You can download a "Kindle reader" that will work on pretty much any device (computer, smartphone or tablet). My sister reads Kindle novels on her iPad.

One of the biggest misconceptions I've run into while talking to people about my book is that you need a Kindle device to read a Kindle book.

I think there is a distinct shortage of boobies in the world. That's why plastic surgeons make what they do.

NP. Honest reviews will sound more genuine than fake "sock-puppet" adulation. In fact, I expect my star rating will go down after the free promotion. While I'll probably get a good bump in the number of reviews, a number of readers will download anything free so you will get people who probably don't like your genre that much to begin with.

Look at big recognized classics and runaway bestsellers and you'll see that most of them have lower star ratings than I do. A lot of that is mass appeal books will have people that love them, but will also draw hate from some quarters.

If my book eventually does succeed (i'm not holding my breath. I consider this a get-my-feet-wet learning experience in ebook marketing), I'll draw my share of 1 star reviews.

Unfortunately no. First of all, ebooks don't have page numbers because they're designed for readers to customize page sizes and font sizes. You do have "locations".

Even so, my book doesn't have much sex but does have a decent amount of violence (beheadings, slit throats and other forms of mayhem). There is, however, an attempted rape of a hot chick.

sorry

sorry I cp'ed your amazon
NP. I was amused to be honest. Course it helped that you gave me a 5 star review. LOL.

Anyway, to DL it you need an amazon account and should get it by hitting the 1-click button on the right side of the page. To read it, you'll need to download the kindle reader software, which is in a link right below the "1-click" button.

Is it the story of a two sport high school star from California recruited to USC only to be stuck behind two heisman trophy winners and never start a game yet managed to get drafted late by the patriots and back up a hall of famer only to step in for said hall of famer when he is injured and play decent enough to bamboozle some dumbass team into screwing over their fans by sticking with him even though he sucks?
