First Five Chapters

Cover for First 5 Chapters

6 Authors - 5 Chapters

Recently, I was invited to take part in a promotional eBook publication involving six  authors.

The idea behind the book is to offer the first five chapters of our story for free to readers. This offering will give readers a taste of story and our writing style. Readers are then able to make an informed choice whether they buy our story and keep reading or if the story is not for them.

I was honoured to be included in this publication.

Volume 1 of First 5 Chapters has been released and is available for free from Smashwords and Amazon (currently listed at .99 cents but should be ‘free’ very soon).

Here is the books decription from Goodreads:

This ebook will give you the opportunity to discover & read the first 5 chapters from 6 talented new Authors in the very popular YA – Fantasy – Paranormal genre.

On behalf of all the 6 Authors featured, I hope you enjoy the read. Your reviews and feedback are warmly welcomed and appreciated.

The Authors featured in this volume.
Carolyn Hockley – Arazi Crossing
KaSonndra Leigh – When Copper Suns Fall
Patti Roberts – Paradox – The Angels Are Here
Mary Ting – Crossroads
Starr West – Tomorrows Child
Lenore Wolfe – The Fallen One

“Read an eBook Week” promotion between March 4-10!

This week I will be participating in ‘Read an eBook’ Week

You can download my book by visiting http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/128184

Download Code is RE100 (You must use the download code to get the Copy for Free)

While you’re at Smashwords, check out eBooks by other indie authors that have enrolled in the giveaway. The code is the same for all books enrolled in the FREE promotion. Other codes are RE25, RE50 and RE75 depending on their percentage discount. I chose 100%  so my book is free.

If you have ever wanted to read an eBook there is no better time than now!

If you don’t own an ereader device like a Kindle, ipad, Nook or Kobo you can download a reader program to read these books on your computer. It’s a bit more difficult and a lot less comfortable than using an ereader but it will give you an idea of how eBooks work.

Here are some eReaders you can download:

Mobi Pocket for other devices – http://www.mobipocket.com/en/DownloadSoft/default.asp?Language=EN

I will always love paper novels, but eBooks are the future, whether we want to believe it or not. While there are some books, I just love to own and hold in my hands, there are others, I am just as happy to read as an eBook.

I like the fact that I am saving resources…

  • no paper used in production of an eBook
  • no poisonous ink
  • no books pulped when the publisher’s sales deadlines are reached (what a waste!)
  • Instant delivery
  • Cheaper to buy and no delivery costs!

I am happy to have other Authors post links to their books in the comments section below.

(Be sure to add the link to your book page so readers can find your eBook easily)
