At Feedbooks the Sony file is actually a PDF.

Oh.. .I didn't know that. I'm not sure if Richard wants his books here. But, they are up at Feedbooks. I guess it is up to him. He has a Word doc on his web site that would probably make a good source file.

DG, if you'd like a refund, just let me know.

The way the British pound is tanking, it's now worth £3.75.

By all means please post an LRF of any of my books here, or I can host them on my site. I'd make LRFs and whatnot myself but I don't have the technical skills.

I'd prefer LRF, especially since I don't have an account at fictionwise. I can convert it from a Word doc, but I'm not the best, so if anyone else wants to volunteer...otherwise I can do it.

I'll be doing two versions. One with no margins and the other with some smallish margins on all sides for those who prefer them.

Not sure what fictionwise has to do with this. You can download several formats for free from feedbooks.com... not account needed there to grab it.

Absolutely. Thanks, JSWolf, and I look forward to hearing from you -- my email address is richardherley (at) googlemail.com. I have a Sony PRS-500 myself and the Feedbooks PDF of Refuge is for some reason very sluggish on that machine.

Presumably I misread feedbooks as fictionwise. Heh.

I'll get it done on Monday. This weekend I'm not sure what sort of time I have. But I can do it on Monday sometime.

That's Calibre fault: works fine in Mobipocket Desktop, we even include the description of the book in the metadata.

For the Sony Reader: you can use the PDF on any of the Sony Readers, and the ePub for the PRS-505 or PRS-700.

The book is divided into parts and then chapters: only ePub can correctly handle multi-level TOC, unlike LRF.
For those of you using a PRS-500: our ePub are high quality enough (100% standard, divided into chapters, correct metadata) to convert just fine with Calibre into LRF.

Refuge is also available directly in our Kindle guide and in Stanza for iPhone users.

This is exactly how I will get the book onto my Kindle. The feedbooks d/l guide is awesome work.

Now that the poll is closed, I'd like to thank the Book Club for choosing this book. When the discussion thread opens I'll keep an eye on it and try to answer any questions. Meanwhile ... I hope you enjoy your reading!
