The Honour of the Knights - Science Fiction eBook

All,

If you're into science fiction and are after a cheap (in price) read, then please check out my book, The Honour of the Knights, book one in the Battle for the Solar System trilogy.

Short: "When starfighter pilot Simon Dodds is enrolled in a top secret military project, he and his wingmates begin to suspect that there is a lot more to the theft of a legendary battleship and an Imperial nation's civil war than either the Confederation Stellar Navy or the government are willing to let on."

The book is available for Amazon Kindle:

$0.99 (US) - http://www.amazon.com/Honour-Knights...dp/B0047DWCDO/

£0.86 (UK) - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Honour-Knigh...dp/B0047DWCDO/

It is also available as a free download off the iBookstore.

(Amazon don't allow listed ebooks to be free, which is why there is a cost).

The book has been well received by those who have read it, and there is also a dedicated website for it at:

www.battleforthesolarsystem.com

The second book will be out next autumn (2011), with the third book set to follow in 2012.

Enjoy!

Just wanted to add something to this quickly.

The original text that was uploaded to Kindle, iBookstore, etc. had a considerable number of typos in it. I know this was quite jarring for many who enjoyed the novel, but were quite put off by the mistakes in the book. The text has now been revised, so it should be relatively free from errors.

For those that downloaded from the iBookstore - simply delete the book from your bookshelf and re-download it. It's free, so no worries there.

For those who purchased it on the Kindle - you can either download the novel from my website:

http://www.battleforthesolarsystem.com/downloads/

or get in touch with Amazon and ask them to send you the revised version. I'm not sure entirely how you do this, though. You could always download the .mobi file from Smashwords if you wanted:

http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/20982

Other download stores I'm not sure about. Maybe the delete and re-download will work?

The second book in the series, THE THIRD SIDE, will be out in September.

Just finished reading this & would add my recommendation for any "space opera" fans - the only caveat is that it's first book of a planned trilogy and while the author might know the whole story, we readers are going to have to wait for a while! :-)

Only until September for book two. The trilogy is full planned, so what's only left is for me to write it. The Third Side (book two) is undergoing a second proofread and Book 3 has completed a rough draft. I'm going to crack on with writing book 3 when I'm done proofing and hope to have the trilogy all complete by the end of 2012..!
