    Thanks, Lexx. Everyone here should listen to that man. Although, I'll admit I'm sort of biased.

    The only thing I ask for my support is a reacharound.

    The last post before the launch of the book on monday. So, if anyone still wants to read the prologue and first two chapters they can. (They can after monday too, I'm just saying.)

    I've got formatting to do this weekend, although my friend informs me that because I use Scrivener, that programme will do everything for me. Which sounds nice.

    Thanks, everyone. She'll be on itunes in the next few weeks. It takes 2 weeks from uploading it to be approved or some such with them.

    I like the idea, but haven't invested in a Kindle yet. Good luck with the launch.

    My books, contests, reviews and author interviews on my blog

  • Deleted user 30 April 2012 13:04:22
    I have to be honest and admit that the plot summary made me die a little inside but that's because I've never been a fan of this type of book! But for less than the lunch I just finished in 10 minutes you damn right I'll give it a try! All the best with it and hats off for bloody well doing what we all want to do.

    @techohippy Thanks.

    @Mowgli - Well if you don't like it, thanks for giving it a try. It's not going to be everyone's cup of tea and that's fair enough.

    I just wanted to thank everyone who picked up a copy yesterday. It got put into the top 100 Fantasy for both the UK and US.

    It's been a crazy, but fantastic, day.

    Thanks, Lexx. I've got a lot of blog interviews and the like for the next few weeks, so hopefully I can keep the sales at a resonable level.

    Good job! I don't have an ereader tho ;)
  • Deleted user 1 May 2012 20:09:55
    @RedSparrows Got a smartphone ?? Most of them have a decent size screen nowadays and you can get the Kindle App and other ereaders on there. I'm pulling out my 4" inches (but adequate) all over the place for a quick read.

    @Steve1979: congrats - enjoyed the first few chapters.
  • Deleted user 1 May 2012 23:46:39
    @Steve - huge congrats mate, a long time in the making. Looking forward to see what the finished article is compared to the early draft I was given :)

    Oh, and less of this e-reader crap, eh? Some of us like to turn actual pages and (shock horror) turn corners to mark our place. Down with the Kindle revolution!

    @RedSparrows - Like, Oldgregg said, if you have a smart phone or tablet you can download the kindle app.

    @oldgregg - Thanks very much, glad you enjoyed it

    @Ironlungs76 - There will be a paperback copy (probably at the end of the month), but because it's through Lulu it'll be about 10 a book.

    I thought that about the Kindle until I actually used one, then you wonder how you did without.

    I do love the kindle, it's an excellent piece of kit. And I have a big enough screen on my phone that it's quite good reading on there too.
  • Deleted user 2 May 2012 11:53:30
    Kindle's great but I... shock horror... still read paper books!?!!!??!!?!!

    The argument usually seems to fall down the "ooh I like holding proper books" hole way too early whenever discussing Kindles/ebooks. Using one doesn't preclude the other. The Kindle's a useful tool to read cool indie-published stuff, read larger books in comfort or to read in the bath safely. Dead trees are still nice to read, nice to hold and nice to browse
