The weird thing was that Amazon never adjusted the price, even though I'd changed it in DTP. It's like they decided to sell it at $2.99 no matter what I wanted. I kept waiting for the price to change, but it never did. :/

Edit: I'll leave the price at $0.99 on Smashwords until tomorrow morning so you can get the mobi (Kindle) format there if you'd like.

Ah, ha. Well, I only created a smashwords account the other day for FREE "purchases" and am not sure I want my credit card in yet another place. I will keep checking.

With Smashwords, you can use Paypal, so no need to give them the CC info directly.
If you don't have Paypal, well tough luck. Without Smashwords you're missing out.

If I find time today (stuff's happening) I will go over to Smashwords - I do have paypal.

Missed out - catch it the next time, if there is one.

Dunno what others have said about this book, but here's my 2c worth.

Our very own K C May has created a fantasy world of excitement, sufficiently different from the traditional to be interesting even to one for whom fantasy is not the stuff of life. The characters are well-drawn, the story holds you, and the book ends with at least me wishing for more.

KC is an American, and at first the occasional transatlantic idiom grates a bit, as one is used to these books having an air of Old English, rather than New American, but one quickly passes that stage, absorbed in the struggles of her creation.

Very well worth the (I think) $2.99 that it cost. Don't know if that was a special offer, but I think I'd recommend it up to $5.00.

Thank you, James! I'm so glad you enjoyed the story. I'm glad you "got" the use of more American-style language. The more traditional fantasies are based on English culture and civilization, even if it's set in a made-up world. I didn't want to do that. Since the world was made up, I wanted the language to be more natural for present day readers. As I was writing the book, the idea that it would reach readers outside of North America didn't really occur to me!

Just discovered your book (thanks to this thread) and finished reading it today. Loved every moment of it. It was refreshing to find a fantasy book that wasn't a thousand page brick devoted simply to world-building. The Kinshield Legacy seems much more character driven. It drew me into the tale at a gallop, letting me focus on the cast and their actions / motivations, rather than pages and pages of filler.

Don't get me wrong, I've enjoyed my share of so-called "epic fantasy", but I really don't need to know exactly what material every rooftop is made out of, in every village that a character passes through. Nor do I always need to be told the color of the horse everyone is riding on, or what material shoe a lady has on, or the type of brocade stitching is on a cloak.

I'm glad to say I didn't get that description-overload sensation while reading this. It had just enough detail to let my mind fill in the rest without me feeling there was a lack, and the pace of the story was so quick -- it felt like everyone happened in a week -- that stopping to read about the color of shrubs would have felt just plain odd.

This is also the type of book that -- having reached the end -- I would have instantly bought the next installment and kept on reading, and that is perhaps the best compliment I can ever give an author about the book they've written.

The Kinshield Legacy received a new 4-star review from Wulfstan, an Amazon top-500 reviewer! He begins by writing, "This book was one of the best First Books by a new author I have been privileged to read and review." I couldn't be more thrilled!
