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.
