Thumbs up New eBook, New Author, New Direction

This eBook, Why'd the Bastard Leave? by K. R. Cox, is only available on amazon.com's Kindle Store. It has the grit of adventure without the stereotypical fantasy legends aka as dragons, elves, mushroom princessess.

Have you read it? What did you think?

And will this new style of human drama fantasy really survive in a marketplace dominated by goblins and wizards on broom sticks?

Have I read it? No. Kindle-only means I have no way of reading it, either in paperback or on my Sony device.

Would I like to read it? Yes, as soon as it shows up in a store that sells epub-formatted books.

On a side note, a quick search turned this book up on Amazon, Smashwords, and Lulu... though the price at Lulu is $2000

I guess it is not "only available at the amazons kindle store"

Nothing wrong with self-promotion, unless its done via astroturfing.

I assumed this post was from the author, hence my request to put it somewhere beyond kindle.

It's very wrong to "push" a product without having the honesty to disclose that you ARE the author, though.

Agreed! I would much prefer a simple "Hey! This is me, this is my work, let me know what you think if you get the chance to read it."

Sorry, that's exactly what I meant. Astroturfing is posting in support of something without admitting your direct interest in it.
