Can't Find My Book
13 May 2018 20:48 (GMT)Hi
I bought a paperwhite some months ago but I always have problems finding books when I've bought them. I have just bought a book using the kindle (so it's nothing to do with my wifi) and it is supposed to have been delivered to my kindle. I certainly have a reference to it on the home page but that is all and that is only text - no picture as I would expect. So where can I find the book - what happens to it when you've bought it and it is supposed to have been delivered. I have done a search on my kindle and although the book appears it looks very much as if it is greyed out and nothing happens when I try to open or download it I should add that it doesn't matter what book it is it just seems to disappear into the ether until it decides to make an appearance. Can anyone help please?
I should add that I have just loaded Kindle for PC and I've downloaded the book without problems but as far as I can make out it still hasn't reached the Kindle!!!
08 April 2018 17:56 (GMT)So sad. My old Kindle faded away and then died. Lovely little blue jacket too.
Perhaps I should have ceremonial farewell for it ...
Creating a one stop depositary for all Kindle and E Book files such as PDFs
29 March 2018 19:37 (GMT)I know how to find "My Kindle and I would have liked to know if I could also add PDF relating to E Books on the same page if that's what its referred as. I attempted to post a question using the following but every one rejected my attempt. I apologise if this is the wrong part of the forum to post this question but I'm lost.
Deleting old Guide from Home Page
26 March 2018 11:28 (GMT)Hi, just got my new Paperwhite from Amazon yesterday so still very much learning to do.
Somehow I've acquired 3 User Guides which show up on my Home page. One shows a silhouette of a reader under a tree. Also I have a 5th Edition Guide and an 8th Edition Guide. As my device is a new one I assume that it's an 8th Edition model. Try as I may, I cannot get rid of that 5th Edition Guide. How do I do that?
Does Amazon Kindle carry heavy stuff such as political history?
25 March 2018 12:58 (GMT)My interest is British political history such as Winston Churchill and I could not work out if Amazon Kindle carries such items. There is no point in attempting to actually ask Amazon because my technical ability is not up to being able to make contact with anyone at Amazon.

FREE 4/20 to 4/24 Chasing the Son (Green Berets)
20 April 2018 13:21 (GMT)CHASING THE SON
Place, time and family. Three things that shape individuals. Sometimes with love. Other times with violence.
Former covert operative, Horace Chase, has just discovered he has a son; a son who fled the Military Institute of South Carolina a year and a half ago after being accused of murder. The victim is the grandson of the most powerful woman in Charleston, South Carolina, who has sworn vengeance.
Chase teams up with another former covert operative, Dave Riley, and one of Riley’s old CIA friends, Kate Westland, to find his son and uncover the truth. Barely into their investigation they become caught up in a land development deal for Daufuskie Island worth hundreds of millions.
Chase and Riley’s covert background has taught them many things, but the most valuable has been that nothing is ever as it appears as an old nemesis rears her head, hell bent on revenge against them both along with a good helping of greed.
And in the shadows hovers THE CELLAR, the agency that polices the world of covert operations.
One by one, the competitors of the land deal are being killed and the threat to Chase’s son grows. And nothing, not the present, not the past, and no one, are as they appear to be.
Who will be left standing?
FREE 4/13 to 4/17 Would the US Military Conduct a Coup? THE LINE
13 April 2018 14:10 (GMT)At West Point I heard rumors of a secret organization called the The Line.
Would the military ever initiate a coup? A secret, powerful group of West Point Graduates, known only as The Line, is going to do just that.
Publishers Weekly: “So convincing, that by the last page, readers may doubt the official version of the last 50 years.”[b]
They killed Patton when he opposed them. They’ve cowered Presidents into going to war. For a century, a secret organization of Army officers known as The Line has been covertly manipulating US Policy. Now, in a political climate rife with dissent and unrest, The Line has ordered a pivotal top-secret operation that will let the world know who is really in charge: take out the President on Pearl Harbor Day.
But The Line didn’t count on Boomer Watson, a member of the Army’s elite Delta Force and Major Benita Trace, both West Point graduates, staying true to their oath of office and willing to fight The Line with their lives.
From The Ukraine to Pearl Harbor to West Point to the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia, it’s a race against time to stop The Line as December 7th looms.
West Point graduate and Special Operations veteran, Bob Mayer, gives an insider account of just how such a scenario might unfold.[/b]
FREE 4/10 only: Dragon Sim-13 (Green Berets)
10 April 2018 14:14 (GMT)FREE HERE
Kirkus Reviews: “Fascinating, imaginative and nerve-wracking. Mayer’s tough, businesslike soldiers again include a tough, businesslike female.”
From the author: "When alerted, we never knew if it was for real or an exercise. We were prepared for real. If we got our "Go" codeword while en route, the mission went."
Dragon SIM-13 is an elaborate computerized command post exercise to test the readiness of the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM). The scenario calls for a U.S. Army Special Forces strike against a strategic target in China. But when thousands of students are massacred in Tiananmen Square during democracy protests, the rules change. Meng, the computer genius behind the SIM program, sees a way to avenge a hatred that had been festering for over 20 years, and tip the scales of freedom. With the push of a button on his master computer, simulation becomes a reality: the Dragon mission is actually launched.
Dave Riley and his A-Team parachute into China to do what they've trained for. The only problem? No one knows they're in China. And we're not at war. What do they do now?
Library Journal. “A daring rescue mission produces a climax with enough suspense and action to satisfy the most jaded of thriller fans. The author of Eyes of the Hammer delivers another rousing tale.”
Journal of US Special Operations: “This is one book you can trust.”

Fantasy and Science Fiction Novels FREE on Kindle
23 March 2018 07:18 (GMT)To celebrate the release of my latest novel ‘Dogs On The Highway’ I’m offering my other two, full length novels for Free on kindle for the next 4 days.
Vagabond Sky (Fantasy)
Kingdom of Ghosts (Science Fiction)
How would you feel if you were suddenly transported to a magical land where sorcery ruled instead of science? A kingdom of elves and trolls, of limitless mystery and grand adventure? Would you be scared of your wits? Or thrilled beyond belief? I.T. Consultant Connor Ingram is neither. He's just pissed off. There’s no football, no Chicken Tikka Masala and no satellite TV. How is he supposed to make a living in a world that hasn’t invented electricity yet? Or the flush toilet? Or a sense of humour? But, most importantly of all, where in hell was he going to get a decent pint of beer?
This is no chronicle of Princes waving sacred swords with unpronounceable names, no saga of heroes wandering about the land looking for the magical doo-dad that will save the day. This is a different kind of fantasy. The epic, freewheeling tale of the ordinary men and women of the Magical Kingdom of Palamir; the ones who scrub the floors, cook the food and clean the toilets (well, they would if there were any). And it is the story of one man in particular. An ordinary man. A man from our world. A man who just couldn’t be bothered. A man who became a kind of hero... when all he was really looking for was another drink.
Kingdom of Ghosts
Rebuilding is not an option.
The world has ended. The few unlucky survivors live in armed camps scattered across the bleak English countryside. Foraging parties roam the ruined cities in search of food and supplies, sifting through the ashes and the useless wreckage of civilisation. Deep in the heart of East Anglia, one crew hits the jackpot; a huge treasure trove of provisions hoarded from before the days of the Breakdown. But who does it belong to and where are they now? And can they resist the temptation to double cross their friends and families in the camp back home?
And can they resist the temptation to double cross each other?
