Hero Wanted

Free from Smashwords: Hero Wanted by Dan McGirt

Blurb:

Quote:
A rollicking fantasy romp across the Eleven Kingdoms with reluctant hero Jason Cosmo and cynical wizard Mercury Boltblaster. Forced to flee his home in Lower Hicksnittle and pursued by bounty hunters, demons, and the sinister Dark Magic Society, Jason goes from the bright realm of The Gods to the depths of the Incredibly Dark Forest to learn the awful truth behind the price on his head.
Funny read. Available in a lot of different ebook formats.

I just picked it up - the Mobi version.

Where's the cover?

I've started reading it, and it's MY kind of humor.

Thanks for the tip on this.

Hmmm, saw that there were three other Jason Cosmo books. but I couldn't quite figure out if Hero Wanted was a re-write of one of the others or if they are pre/sequels or such. Anyone who could clear this up?

Hi! Glad you're enjoying the book. To answer your question, the original sequence was Jason Cosmo, Royal Chaos, Dirty Work -- all out of print now. Hero Wanted reboots/relaunches the series. It is a revision of the first title, Jason Cosmo. So you can safely ignore the existence of the earlier books, or track down used copies, as you prefer.

Hi Dan, thanks for clearing that up. And hopefully we'll see more about Jason Cosmo soon.

I truly enjoyed the book and had some very questioning looks from the significant other as to why I was giggling hystericly like a school girl while enjoying Hero Wanted.

Would it be possible to put Hero Wanted up on Feedbooks as Feedbooks does better a much better conversion to ePub?

Thanks, all, for the kind words. I'm glad you're enjoying Hero Wanted.

Jon -- thanks for the suggestion about Feedbooks. I'll investigate and try to get the book posted there. I'm about to go on vacation for a couple of weeks, so it might be September before I can get to it.

In the meantime, if others have suggestions for your favorite ebook sites or formats that I should consider, please let me know, either here or write to Dan@JasonCosmo.com

I'm not super-techie -- this was the appeal of using Smashwords, which was a simple way to get multiple formats out there at once while maintaining my technical ignorance. But readers rule, and I want my book to be where you want to look for it. So I welcome any advice. Again, I may not respond for the next couple of weeks, but I will check back here. Thanks again! --Dan

Great book, I'm currently enjoying it.

I whip through most books in an afternoon, but I'm taking this one a chapter a day, don't really want it to be over too quickly.
