Free Epic Fantasy Book for Kindle - SWORD BEARER

Hi, my name is Teddy Jacobs, and I’m writing because my Epic Fantasy novel for all ages for the Kindle, SWORD BEARER, is free again today. (July 20th).

Maybe you could spread the word?

Here’s the pitch:

You swing a staff until you're ready to swing a sword. Then you go on all kinds of adventures -- fighting monsters, casting spells and saving damsels in distress. At least that's how it's supposed to work, but I didn't believe a word of it.

Fantasy Adventure Ages 10 to Adult.

Two forms of power -- natural and chemical - divide the world. Dragons, who keep the chemical power in check, have long retreated from human sight; few still believe in them. Inside a castle surrounded by Tuscan hills more and more threatened by chemical forces, sixteen-year-old Anders lives a sheltered life. But much as his parents try, Anders can't avoid the forces that threaten...

Amazon USA:
http://www.amazon.com/Sword-Bearer-R...dp/B006XXHQLY/

Not free at Amazon UK (feel free to try and price match it to free with iTunes):
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sword-Bearer...dp/B006XXHQLY/

Free at iTunes USA:
http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/swor...44781616?mt=11

At iTunes UK:
http://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/swor...44781616?mt=11

Also free on Kobo:

And on Smashwords:

Best,

Teddy Jacobs

But still not available for those of us who use epub. Do you plan to make it available for people outside the Amazon eco system?

In a couple of months, I think I'll be able to leave Kindle exclusivity and publish on more platforms. At the moment my urban fantasy Wicked Hungry is available in epub (nook, kobo) and for iTunes as well.

Best,

Teddy Jacobs

I d/loaded this, supposedly an "omnibus" edition of books one & two - all that arrived was the 1st one.. which, again, states it is the omnibus edition.
The 2nd was cheap, so I bought it, but I was a bit annoyed - perhaps you should correct this.

Hi,

I double checked the files on Amazon.

This here, is the 1st book. (Sword Bearer). Wind Rider is the second book.

The omnibus edition is also available, under the title Return of the Dragons (omnibus).

Sorry about any frustration, and I hope you enjoyed the books!

I'd like to suggest taking your ePub version and running it through Sigil to clean up the code. Most word processors don't make code all that neat as they aren't designed for eBooks. If you cleaned up the code, you could even add in a table of contents.

Epic Fantasy, Sword Bearer, free again for Kindle

Free again, but only for the Kindle.

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006XXHQLY

You swing a staff until you're ready to swing a sword. Then you go on all kinds of adventures - fighting monsters, casting spells and saving damsels in distress. At least that's how it's supposed to work, but I didn't believe a word of it.

BOOK ONE OF THE EPIC FANTASY SERIES RETURN OF THE DRAGONS

Locked in his room in the castle, young Anders yearns for adventure. Until the day he opens a magic portal and a girl bursts into his locked room with a chemical warlock hot on her trail.

And adventure finds him.

An adventure full of danger, full of blood, fire, demons and evil. To face it, he'll need the sword given him by his blademaster, need the ancient words his grandfather gave him on his deathbed. Need the song that runs in his own blood, in his veins.

A sword will be reforged, magic words discovered, battles fought, friends made and lost, secrets revealed. And blood will be spilled.

But will blade, word and blood be enough?
