Wink [Expired] The Undead Situation-- now in Mobi and ePub!

Hey, guys! I recall people requesting different formats of The Undead Situation, and so I went forth and created them! I now have PDF, Mobi, ePub, HTML, and the usual Kindle. Each of them except the Kindle one are free at my website, www.eloisejknapp.com

Here is my working synopsis for the book. Any comments on that would be appreciated, too!

//
When it happened, people tried to create a cure. The government attempted to form contingency plan after plan, each one failing more so than the last. No matter what anyone did, no matter how hard they hoped, the dead came back and ate people. Cities collapsed into oblivion while chances of survival diminished by the second. Despite the gore stained streets and screams of his fellow man, one person sits back and watches the scenes unfold with apathetic eyes…

Self-proclaimed sociopath Cyrus V. Sinclair isn’t surprised by the living dead rising and roaming the Earth. What with his cache of guns and MREs, he doesn’t mind the idea of staying in his Seattle apartment until the end of days—come hell or high water. This plan holds true until he meets up with Gabe, a belligerent annoyance, and other survivors, who cramp his style and force him to reevaluate his outlook on life.

//

Here is the Amazon Kindle link. The book is 99 cents.

Thanks for the book
I took a look at the pdf version and I noticed a ton of blank pages. It goes all the way to page 8 before I see anything. Maybe it is just me?

I take that back... there is a "To My Father" on page 2, and pages 3-7 have a "-" on the top left. After that there are random blank pages.

Sam Landstrom is your uncle? How does your book compare to his?

Looks like the other versions may also have them. Here is a screenshot from the eub. Also the font change looks funky dont it

Yep, I see it! Thanks for pointing it out. I'll go get rid of the blank spaces.

Yes! Mine is very different. Its a lot shorter and a lot more violent. It's a little more forward in the plot department.

As soon as I finish the David Moody Autumn series (1 and a bit left), yours is next up. Highly anticipated. Thank you.

I really enjoyed it
Enough to register on mobileread forums just to tell you so


p.s. any specific reason for using French names ? Sinclair, Bordeaux, Eloise?

Happy holidays!

Thanks a ton!!

Well, I love the French. My name is Eloise, so that just happens to be. I didn't consciously use French names, but I don't mind that I did.

Hi Eloise
I finished your book yesterday. Fast paced, unrelenting action with some good characters. A very good story. It is not finished though, is it? Book 2?

Thank you.

Thanks so much! If you feel like it and have time, please post a review on Amazon. :P

Hmm... Book 2? Maybe, maybe not!

This made it's way to the top of my queue, and I noticed that every paragraph is noted as being its own page on my PRS-505. The first page of viewable text, is listed as being pages 15-19.
