Hi Caleb,

The "free" versions on Amazon are not version 3 - anyway the version is on the front page so it will tell yo which edition it is - except the first edition which doesn't say it. If you PM me your email address, I'll email you the latest -

Until the test version goes free, I won't update the others - but as soon as it ticks over to free, I'll update all of them - Smashwords included. Because sometimes people buy the new release early, maybe thinking it's a new version and will remain at that price - so I figure that until Amazon discount it, I should respect their mistake and not make it available elsewhere. At least if nothing else, they got the latest version early for their payment. Not great logic, but it's all I can offer them.

Anyway, it shouldn't take long for Amazon to discount it and in the mean time, I'll email a copy to anyone who PM's me their email address. An offline, DRM free version in .MOBI format. At least until the latest version ticks over to free.

Regards
David
I sent you a PM.

I was just about to ask about that!

So if I'm reading this right, I just wait until the latest version goes free on Amazon, give it another couple of days, and then I can re-download from Smashwords and get the latest version from them in ePub?

I just redownloaded from my Amazon archive. How do I tell which revision it is?

Other than going to look for some the edits I myself made, of course. :-)

The revision number is at the top of the first page, eg,
Kindle Edition or Amazon Edition = 1st edition - Also given away by the aweful formatting.
Second Kindle Edition = 2nd
Third Kindle Edition = 3rd

There is also a 2nd Smashwords edition ( for kindle ) and a smashwords edition.

There is no third-smashwords edition yet.

The second-kindle edition is currently the most recent before the third.

Because it's all over the place, that's why it's easier to just email the few copies I'll get asked for by people who have been waiting a while -

Regards
David

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this book. Kept me up reading till the iPad battery died, then I had to go find the charger so I could finish it. More, please!

I have to say this is one of the more enjoyable Science Fiction books I've read in a while. If it was in paper version I would recommend it to my Science Fiction/Fantasy reading club.

So print it. Or ask someone who has a printer to do it for you.

This book club is at B&N & they don't allow that. The books read have to be ones sold at the B&M store. BUMMER!!! I did try to get them to read when it first came out.

Simply persuade B&N to publish the book ;-)
I am pretty sure David won't be against it.
