Earthfleet - Book 2 - Destiny's Mission - Now available on Goodreads!

Ok, it seems that since figuring out the system over at Good Reads (gawds, I must be getting old, cause it's taking me *way* too long to figure out this new stuff these days) I've now been able to get myself added as an author there, plus I've uploaded a copy of Destiny's Mission for sale. I'm still working on getting my ebooks into all the other locations of interest, like Smashwords and the like (long story, don't ask), but this now opens up an avenue for people to purchase book 2 in ebook form if they want to. I'll have book 3 up there soon too, but I evidently gotta wait for at least B&N, Borders, or someone to post information about book 3 before I'm allowed to do that. T_T

But anywho, in the meantime, you can grab book 2 here: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/9...tiny-s-mission

EDIT: Extra links for you guys since Goodreads is being a bit retarded.

I have my copy but I would like to recommend book 2 as a cracking read.

And for those who don't understand Australian, that means that it was a really, really good book. But yes, sabredog already told me that he really liked it, and I know the rest of you will as well.

$14.39 is for the pbook, Jon. If you follow Steven's link to Goodreads, there is a button to the right of the "buy for $14.39". This button is titled "read ebook". Click on that and you can preview the first three chapters or buy the book in your favourite epub format. The ebook is still $8.00, though.

No, that's just stupid Amazon, and only for the print version. I still haven't got the prices fixed with them yet. If they don't fix it soon I'm going to just yank the books. The ebook version is just $8. To get to that you have to click through the buy book link to see all the choices. I don't know why, but you do.

Here's the direct preview link: http://www.goodreads.com/reader/read/7769?percent=0

And here's the direct buy link: https://www.goodreads.com/store/pay/26601

When I click the direct buy link, I get That payment isn't yours..

Anyway, I did find it at $8.00. Thanks.

Where can I find Book 1?

I don't think it's you. I think the infrastructure of some of these new vendors just isn't ready for prime time. It seems like I've had more problems this month than any other. Then when I thought about it, I've been going to new (to me) vendors. It's making me cranky.

I'm gonna get your book, but I need a rest!

I had major issues getting the other books in the series from an ebook vendor as well. Steve came through though!

Yeah, if a vendor has issues getting my books out to people, I will always make it right and make sure people get their ebooks one way or another.

Goodreads says that there hasn't been any downloads of the ebooks yet. So I'm just wondering of anyone has had any issues grabbing a copy from the site. Let me know if you do and I'll see what's needed to solve the issue.
