I tried the LRF twice - then reported it to Smashwords. However the ePub came down just fine for me (I know it won't help the 500 users - but maybe Calibre can.)

Hi folks,
I just became aware of this thread. The 11:00pm thing is probably our fault. We cut off the codes at 12:00 Eastern time. Apologies to our friends in the Central, Mountain, and Pacific zones. I don't know about the technical issue with Cibola- sounds like a Smashwords issue. At any rate, if anyone missed out, please e-mail me before Wednesday at editor [at] gryphonwoodpress.com and we'll see what we can do to get you hooked up. Thank you for your interest in Gryphonwood. We're thrilled at the response to the giveaway, and will likely do another during the holiday season.

Any chance of something for us European members (Europe = big place, kind of east of America)? We have the internet here too you know, and some of us would actually like to buy books

I'm not gryphonwood--but why couldn't you have downloaded from Smashwords? There isn't anything about US only...I'm pretty sure anyway because when I uploaded my books, I believe it was worldwide. You could email gryphonwood. Maybe they'll honor your, 'But I wanted to download..."



of course, some of the ebooks from Gryphonwood on smash are pretty darn reasonable anyway. The one by Terry Ervin is only 1.99, I think. WHen I was downloading the others, the prices were around two to three bucks!!!

Ah - my mistake then. Maybe I'll try that - thanks Bear.

Hello again. Smashwords tells me that the problem with Cibola is fixed, so if you're one of the customers who got a corrupted file, please contact them and they'll hook you up. Also, the offer is still open to those who missed out Saturday night, but I need to hear from you before Wednesday. See my above post for contact info.

Smashwords e-mailed me about nine hours ago to let me know they had fixed it and I've now got Cibola in LRF format - thanks for following it up
