Some Explanations and Apologies

I have finished all editing and have completed Book 1: The U.S. of After the first installment of This Broken Earth, and fully intended to offer the book for free on Amazon, Nook and iTunes…but they are a corporation, and they want their money.  I tried to publish the books for FREE, but unfortunately since I am not a big publishing house, I cannot offer them as such and must charge a minimum of .99 cents for each copy.  

To those who I promised a free copy, I apologize, and I should have done a little more research into the matter.  I feel like a complete fool.  I am not beyond e-mailing copies to people who want one.

The plus to this is that people can STILL get my book FOR FREE from Smashwords, and in all formats.  I will be posting the details on Wednesday when the worldwide release goes out (and I have made sure that everything is up and running).

In the mean time, feast your eyes on the final version of the cover.  I added a little color as per my wife’s instructions.  Look for it soon at digital retailers near you (or for free on Smashwords).

Again, my deepest apologies.

  1. Oh not to worry, after all the effort you have put into your writing/blogging etc, who cares about $0.99?
    And I like the cover too. Well done mate!

  2. Congratulations on your new release. Can’t wait to read it! I wanted to tell you that is some very creative cover art. One of the best! The cover alone would make me grab your book off of a shelf! Well done Roger!
