I've just finished reading Jason K Lewis's story 'Paradise', and while it's well written, it's really the first few chapters of a book that isn't out yet:

My books in cloud.

20 June 2016 10:09 (GMT)

I have almost 300 books that I have read or that I have discarded as I had started, and were not as 'advertised' . 
Is there a way that I can delete these from cloud, as I feel that they are taking up valuable space.

Formatting problems when publishing an e-book

17 June 2016 08:05 (GMT)

I was wondering if anybody has had the kind of problems I encountered recently getting my children's book into kindle format? It got to the stage where it seemed like 'rocket science!' The problem, it seems, was that the document I had originally written the book in was in word, and full of tabs. These, so I understand, 'must' be taken out as it just leads to confusion for kindle. ( Poor Kindle - such  sensitive, fickle thing! ) Not so apparently as - having resigned myself to not being able to upload my book to kindle after all - on a whim I typed 'format HTML online' into my search engine ( even I knew a lot of the problems were down to HTML! ) which lead me to http://www.freeformatter.com, a site which formats HTML.  I pasted my document into this page and, voila! - instantaneously it transformed my book into a presentable page on Kindle. ( I didn't know that at the time, and still a bit cynical, I re-pasted the manuscript back into word, where I was even able to adjust the paragraph margins, something I hadn't been able to do before. ) Anyway, after uploading the whole thing once again into e-publisher, those offending yawning gaps between dialogue that had existed in my book simply disappeared, and I was left with what I thought was a pretty presentable book in Kindle with a pleasing appearance.
This was all down to a hunch that if I could get the text 'mangled' into some automatic online HTML formatter it might solve the problem, and it did. If anyone has a similar issue to this it might be a good idea to go to the website mentioned above. ' Now my children's book, The Disappearing Duke, is up in Kindle alongside my new thriller. The Emperor's Island, The latter book curiously gave me no problems whatsoever in uploading into Kindle - formatting! It can seem such a hit and miss procedure, and it's nice to know that straightforward online solutions exist.

FREE today: Psychic Warrior

20 June 2016 15:06 (GMT)

Based on a real program I was involved in, while serving in Special Operations: Psychic Warrior
Sergeant Major Jimmy Dalton and a small team of US Green Berets who were originally trained in Trojan Warrior program are thrust into the Psychic Warrior program. The team, called Bright Gate, must battle Chyort on the virtual plane and take their own avatars into the real world. Their mission seems simple. Stop Chyort. If they fail? World War III...

Psychic Warrior takes warfare into the virtual plane through avatars and then reinserts the covert operatives into the real world. The results can be devastating. Mayer uses his real Military experience in the then-classified Special Forces Trojan Warrior program, which was actually conducted, and writes a novel about the new frontier of warfare: the mind.

The Russians sink the submarine USS Thresher in 1963 using their classified psychic project, but something goes awry and all are killed. All except one scientist who plans to take the project to a higher level. Decades later, the Russians unleash Chyort, also known as the ‘Devil’. Chyort is a cyborg that can project into the virtual world with almost limitless power and reassemble his avatar anywhere in real world to wreak havoc. As the Russian mafia steals 20 nuclear warheads to auction them to the highest bidder, Chyort implements his own plan of revenge.

The Box, by J.Grey

03 June 2016 08:25 (GMT)

My sci-fi novel, 'The Box' is free for a couple of days. It's a dark near-future fantasy story of androids, prostitution, drugs and violence. I wrote it about 12 years ago but now live in SE Asia where prostitution, drugs and violence are actually a way of life. Oddly, that inspired me to write a comedy about a waiter and a man who delivers towels.
If you like you're sci-fi dark, grim and depressing than you might like this. If not, I also wrote a true tale of a motorcycle ride halfway around the world which is somewhere between a comedy and a dark and depressing tale of prostitution, drugs and violence.
I hope you like it. Many thanks.

Once Upon a One Night Stand - Free Contemporary Romantic Comedy

30 May 2016 18:12 (GMT)

Free from today to June 1st Smile
Once Upon a One Night Stand (Lover #1)
Welcome to The LOVER Show. Let's begin with L:
Have you ever tried not liking a guy when your best friends decide you should like him? How about if that guy had the sexiest ass on the planet, and was your birthday-cake one-night-stand with icing on top?
London Reeves agrees that three years is a long time to live without sex, but one steamy hot night could never last longer than the morning after. Yet her four lunatic best friends disagree on that last one. The voices in her head disagree, too, and even her mother seems to think she's crazy. And sexyass will not take a goddamn no for an answer. Now what exactly is a girl to do against that?
