My first attempt at writing an original...

I've been writing fanfiction for years, recently I had an idea for an original story. Finally it's finished.

It's a novella called Black Silk and it's a light romance with a paranormal twist. I should warn you that it's 'chick lit' and has some sex in it. Fellas, you probably won't like it.

Anyway it can be downloaded for free at http://www.feedbooks.com/userbook/6555

If you find any typos, like it or even hate it, please PM me.

Please keep in mind that I do not claim that it's great literature, just a nice, easy read.

Not my "thing", Jan, but it seems to be nicely written. Best of luck with it!

I am having trouble downloading it. Feedbooks seems to have removed the quick link for Sony Reader format, and when I went into cutom PDF and found it, it would not let me set that as my default. Anyone know what's up?

I also noticed the new look to feedbooks.

It seems you have to sign in for the custom pdf or get to the sony template. I wanted to change the font size and kept getting the error page.

I have to go back and give it a try again.

i believe to set your "custom" default at feedbooks you have to be signed in ; then it remembers your settings in the future and you only have to set them once.

if you are still having trouble with it after that you should let hadrien know, it could be a bug.

I was signed in and everything. I tried it on a few books and every time I went to custom PDF, it asked me to set my default, I clicked on the Sony one and tried to save it, and got an error message.

Hadrien said on another thread that he is fixing some bugs, so hopefully the problem will be resolved soon.

Just wanted to share. I'm dancing with happiness right now. My book, Black Silk, has passed the 2,000 downloads on Feedbooks and it's only been posted for eighteen days.
