    [Edit: MetaGame has been picked up by a publisher who is only making the ebook available on Kindle *AND* MetaGame is no longer free ($2.99 as of writing this). You can get the free Kindle reading app for iPad/iPhone here and then get the [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003LSTK7C"]Kindle version here[/ame]. Thanks! [End of Edit]

    My novel MetaGame is FREE as an IBook. Just search on "MetaGame" in your IPad IBook store. Also, here's a link that might work: http://itunes.apple.com/book/metagame/id365938813

    It already has great reviews on [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003LSTK7C"]Amazon[/ame] and it's FREE so no reason not to download it. This is not a promotion, this is a COMPLETE book with no strings attached. Heck, it's not even part of a series (not yet), so it's not bait for other books. The paperback doesn't even come out until September, so you're getting an early version thanks to your high-tech proclivity.

    BTW, someone please reply to this thread to let me know if it looks OK on the IPad (I don't have one).

    Thanks,
    Sam

    P.S. here's the blurb about the book:
    /////////
    Blurb:
    Life is a game, literally. Winners earn immortality, while losers are condemned to aging and death. D_Light, a gifted player, knows this all too well and he's willing to do anything to win-even kill. It is no wonder then that when given the chance to enter a MetaGame-an exclusive, high-stakes, anything goes contest-he's quick to jump at the opportunity. The MetaGame starts out well enough for D_Light, the first quest being to hunt down a dangerous fugitive, but through his own ambition, the tables turn and D_Light finds himself the renegade. Now, D_Light pits himself against his world to find the truth behind "The Game" and must decide between winning it and saving what's left of his humanity.

    This novel blends emerging political and cultural trends, such as gaming culture, globalization, and the ever-increasing hegemony of corporations, with technological trends, such as genetic engineering, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality. Emerging from this stew is an original world to explore through the point of view of several of its "players".

    Hey thanks for downloading it! Based on your response, I'm guessing that the formatting is looking good on IPad. I don't have one, so I can't test it on my end.

    Thanks,
    Sam

    It's sci-fi although there are some fantasy elements.

    Thanks,

    Downloaded and started reading, appears 100% format-wise.
    Reserving judgment on the story until I've read through it. :p
    Would you mind sharing what application or method you used to make the journey from text to epub?

    Paid? I didn't raise the price, so it better not be! How much? BTW, could you tell me what the rank is?

    [Edit] Oh, I see, you included a screenshot. That screenshot is of the Amazon page for the paperback which isn't free and my publisher isn't making available 'till late this year. The iBook is free in the iBook Store. I don't think I can link to their store page can I? I think you just have to search in the iBook Store for "MetaGame".

    Thanks!

    kudos to the author that gives us this FREE, i am not much of a book reader, my wife is up late every night reading books of all kinds, i am trying to show her the many features of the ipad, and i think she will go for this book on the ipad, then maybe she wont think i spend too much money on my toys, by the way, i am a retired newspaper man, so instead of books i am constantly on this thing reading nyt and usa today and my local online paper, a great product for trying to watch tv and surf the web during ads, smile
