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.

Eureka! That will be the plot of my next book.

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.
No misconception, I just don't do locked in/proprietary if I can avoid it. I've spent a small fortune at Baen due to their open policies. I also have no plans of installing an application to read closed products that I can only license, not purchase.

I know, I've become a crotchety old man.

Bump the thread when you upload an epub version and I'll grab a copy!

this is about bumping his book profile, not your reading preference

just download then delete it

No thanks.

I'd rather purchase a copy of the book than support the Kindle format, which I would be doing in attempting to show support for the author by downloading a Kindle version. Same concept as wanting Hunt to see empty seats, I won't give Amazon a click on a format I think is wrong.

This in a genre that I read and sounds interesting, so I will support a CP author by purchasing a copy when available in either an open standard or dead tree version.

Not trying to make a "statement" or anything. Just how I feel.

Not really. I asked if there was another format available out of interest in the work. I then went on to clarify that it was not a lack of a Kindle keeping me from downloading.

But please feel free to go on with your superficial support of downloading then ignoring the author's work. Mighty wide of ya.

Some of us just like JohnnyV, even though we don't care for the genre.

A paperback version is coming. Proofs are coming for my review. I'm committed to Kindle for another two months or so, and then I'll be on almost every other ebook format because I'll create a smashwords version. Ignore the current pricing. My ebook versions will go back to .99 cents after the promotion is over. The trade paperback will cost $9.99 on Amazon and should be available to order in Dec.

Sounds good! Be sure to bump when available and I'll pick up a copy!

Hey, My book is now on a free Kindle promotion again. If you helped last time, many thanx. If you didn't DL it in November, its free until Tuesday.

Unlurking, I just approved my proof copy for the trade paperback, which means it available in the Createspace e store and you can order it on Amazon in five days.

Thanx everyone. This time, I have already given away more than my entire giveaway from last time, and have hit #16 on Epic Fantasy and #913 overall.

Shooting for the top 100 overall on Kindle free books.
