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!
Sam

Sam...

It looks like your book is great...thanks :)

Thanks marcelomelo! Feedback welcome. :)

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

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?

Thanks for the download!

I used Smashwords to publish through this medium. If you go to their website, you can submit your document (I think in HTML or Word form) and they will convert it. If you want to ship it into ebook stores (e.g. iBook Store, Kindle Store, Barns & Noble, and the Sony Store) you have to meet Smashwords style guidelines, but that's not too hard.

If you just want to convert files to different formats, there's freeware out there for that... I'll have to get on my other machine to see what I used.

My publisher is re-doing my cover art. Here's some mockups. Which do you like? Or more to the point, if you were browsing through a bookstore, which would you pick up and look at and/or buy?

2 and 4 grabbed my attention best.

Most of the others, I would pass over on a book rack scan.

Really like your book. You've created a very interesting world with likable characters. Is this your first novel?

Yup, it's my first. I'm working on a fantasy novel now.

The results are in (I had a few other threads on this) and the #2 had a pretty strong lead. Thanks in large part to this democratic process, this is likely going to be the one:

Number 2# is the best by far :), one thing I've been trying to find your book but can not seem to find it, this may sound stupid but is it available in the uk iBook store?
