The Patron Saints.

I hope i don't come off as lazy, as this is only in Rich text format. But it looks fine in the reader as i browsed through it.

I'll probably do a nice fancy version later with a cover once i figure out how to make the reader specific files. I just got my reader a few weeks ago. (and love it)

Anyways. Free is free. This is my self published novel, so i'm giving myself (T.M. Wells) permission to post it for the members of mobileread here.

Its the story of Jude Iscariot, a single, young, corporate, jet setter. He has tattoos of Catholic Saints on his arms that come to life and begin to interfere with his chosen lifestyle.

Looking back there are definitely things i would have done differently, but it did get a readers choice award from a local entertainment mag, so it shouldn't be torture to read. The content can be a little blue sometimes so if you're under 18 you may want to give it a miss.

Tim, I moved your post to another category since it's not really Sony-specific.

Btw, welcome on board.

If you want to publish your work using custom generated PDF files (there's templates for A4, the Sony PRS-500, and iRex's iLiad, but anyone can select the size and the font for the file), you might consider using the project I'm working on: Feedbooks. http://www.feedbooks.com

It'll create a TOC for your book too, and anyone can customize the PDF for their own taste.

@Cpt. Tim

I've read your book. Do you want to know what I thought of it? I'll wait for your reply.

I have some criticism but the verdict is...don't stop writing...you're worth it.

sorry it took so long to see this. i'm usually in the sony reader forum.

Sure, i'd love specific critique. This was the first thing i wrote so after years i'm aware myself of things that i should have changed. I.E. avoiding writing in the first person, abrupt ending, maybe a little to risque for the sake of being risque.

But since it is a first attempt i'm less likely to go back over it at the moment. I love the concept and think i have a good outline, and i've gotten a lot of good feedback and positive opinions on the book. I figure i'll hone my writing for some years before revisiting. but of course all feedback, positive and negative is welcome.
