Free E-Book on Amazon – Reviews Needed!

On August 1, 2014, I will be using the FREE promotion tool on Amazon for my eBook, “Death of The Fairy King”. I know that I am being incredibly impatient but I would really like to see some reviews coming in! For my non-fiction eBook, I had a built in audience and an email customer list already in place so getting some reviews was not too  hard.

This is my first full length non-fiction book (both printed and in an eBook format) and, as a self-published and  newbie indie author, I truly would like some input, so, if you have the time, please download the eBook, read it, and add a review in Amazon.

Death of The Fairy King” is a mystery/suspense book. Here is the description on Amazon:

Two ten-year-old girls go into the forest near their home one hot summer night but only one child returns, dazed and spattered with her friend’s blood. Jenny has no memory of what happened but in her nightmares, she sees a mythical figure from local lore called the Fairy King. Is the Fairy King just a legend or is he the alter ego of a dangerous psychopathic child killer?

The police are unable to solve the mysterious disappearance of Jenny’s friend and twelve years go by as she tries desperately to get on with her life. No matter how much she tries, the past refuses to let her go and she moves through her day to day existence with an empty space in her heart and mind. A chance encounter with a book about the abduction triggers new nightmares and drags her back to that terrible summer night and her encounter with the Fairy King.
Jenny never completely regains her lost memories but as an adult, she returns to her hometown, hoping her presence will stir up fresh clues in the mysterious disappearance. She vows to find her friend, end her nightmares, and unmask the Fairy King, whatever the cost. Potential witnesses hold the key to solving this case but each one ends up dead, keeping the long buried indiscretions of a small town safe.
Will Jenny solve the mystery in time to save other victims of the Fairy King or is she destined to end up like her friend, gone without a trace?



If you have an eBook and, if it is in the genre that I like (mystery, suspense, science fiction, horror), let me know!



BookBaby Now Has a Free Option

BookBaby now seems to have thrown their hat into the ring for publishing eBooks and they have simplified the process for those of us who like to use Amazon’s Kindle Select!

Here is a section from their facts page concerning KDP Select:

Can I work with BookBaby AND Kindle Direct Publishing Select? And can BookBaby handle my KDP eBook conversion?
The short answer: yes.

We can convert your book to the .mobi file format required by Kindle. But, due to KDP Select’s 90-day exclusivity period, you will have to wait a bit before BookBaby distributes your book for iPad, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo, and others.

According to Amazon’s website:
When you choose KDP Select for a book, you’re committing to make the digital format of that book available exclusively through KDP. During the period of exclusivity, you cannot distribute your book digitally anywhere else, including on your website, blogs, etc. However, you can continue to distribute your book in physical format, or in any format other than digital.

How we can convert your eBook for Kindle without violating the terms of your KDP Select Agreement:

  • Sign up for BookBaby and select the eBook publishing package of your choice.
  • During the signup process, do not select any distribution partners and select “no” for future distribution partners. This will prevent us from distributing your book to iBooks, B&N, etc. or to future partners if they are added to our distribution network during the exclusive period your book will be listed with Amazon.
  • Email or call us to request your .mobi file. If you’ve ordered our Standard or Premium package, please wait to request the .mobi file until AFTER you’ve approved your proof.
  • Sign up to KDP Select using your BookBaby converted .mobi file.
  • When 90 days are up, contact BookBaby and we’ll deliver your eBook to all the other digital retailers.

It will be interesting to see how smoothly this concept works.
