Free SF adventure from Phoenix Pick - Fortress on the Sun

Phoenix Pick's Ebook of the month: Fortress on the Sun by Paul Cook and free with coupon code 9992371. (Scroll down in their site until you reach this book).


Description: Ra is a 21st century prison camp that also acts as facility for harvesting metals—from the Sun. The prisoners have all been banished here for extreme crimes, but none of them remembers anything from their past. As a lethal disease slowly spreads through the camp and the prisoners are abandoned, Ian Hutchings must find a way out if he and his people are to survive. But dark secrets lurk, and as they try to survive both the illness and the inferno they live on, they will discover a truth even stranger than their own circumstances.

How do you get the book onto kindle after using coupon? My brain is not working right and I can't figure it out.

Download the ebook onto your computer and remember the path.
Connect your Kindle to your computer via USB and sideload the ebook file to your Kindle "documents" folder.
Disconnect and enjoy your new book


Edit:
Thank you Susan, for the ebook. I think this is bulls eye into my sci-fi preference

But the Phoenix site has mobi, epub, pdf, lrf with no DRM, so you don't need Smashwords for this one.

You can also just email it to your kindle address (free or pay, depending on type of Kindle you have). For best results, download the MOBI version.

Thanks everyone, but 1 more question. Does the same instructions apply on a iMac? I have a windows based laptop, but I prefer to use my mac because of the big screen.

I haven't ever hooked up my Kindle to my Mac, but presumably it should work the same. When you plug the Kindle in, it will simply show up as an external drive, and you copy the ebook file into the Documents folder on the Kindle.

EDIT: Here are instructions from Amazon

Alternately, here's how to email to yourself (free since you have the wifi version)
