Pairing with bluetooth headphones

08 December 2018 10:55 (GMT)

Hello there, I am very happy to be a new member of the community!
I have received the new Kindle Paperwhite for my birthday last month, and I finally managed to have my audible collection on it. However I can't pair my brand new Sony WH-1000XM3 with it, as the list of available connected bluetooth devices shows nothing. I have already tried to switch the Kindle on and off - even resetted it to factory settings. Both kindle and headphones firmware are up to date.
I would appreciate your help on that issue!
Best regards,
Geneviève

Kindle X-ray issue?

04 December 2018 07:49 (GMT)

Is anybody facing issues with the x-ray being greyed out across all your books. I have my books indexed and my books which previously had x-ray enabled which were bought from the kindle store has lost that functionality. I tried it on my iOS devices too and for some reason it ain’t working there either. https://downloader.vip/the-pirate-bay/ PutLocker https://appsync.biz/123movies/

e-book in a second language

26 November 2018 11:12 (GMT)

I have published a Kindle book (in English language) 'Tales from the Arctic' on Amazon, and although I am aware that there are 'apps' available for some e-book readers' devices that can translate the text to their respective language, Kindle does not support text in cyrillic, so would it be bending the rules if I produced the book as a stand-alone e-book?

Does anyone engage with textbooks on Kindle?

25 November 2018 17:51 (GMT)

Hi, I'm writing a textbook on engineering/  Speed Test Scrabble Word Finder Solitaire mathematics/physics for Amazon. It'll be my first writing attempt and so before I embark on the endeavour of converting to Kindle, I'd like to know if people engage with textbooks on Kindle, or are students more likely to use paper textbooks? Thanks

Kindle worth it?

24 November 2018 05:45 (GMT)

Been thinking about a kindle for a long time. Never got one because I just prefer physical books.

I read an article recently about  Speed Test Scrabble Word Finder Solitaire kindles from a similar perspective i have. They said e-books are very cheap and when you find favorite books, you can buy physical copies.

I looked at the kindle library and most e-books cost more than the soft cover books???

I dont understand the point then other than convenience. Any suggestions would be nice.

FREE 12/15 to 12/17 Valentines Day (Time Patrol)

15 December 2018 15:42 (GMT)

Valentines Day (Time Patrol)
“The point in history at which we stand is full of promise and danger. The world will either move forward toward unity and widely shared prosperity—or it will move apart.” [b]President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

What does it take to change history and destroy our reality? Change events on the same date, 14 February, in six different years. The Time Patrol must send an agent back to each day, with just 24 hours for each to defeat the Shadow's plan to disrupt our time-line, creating a time tsunami and wiping our present out.

Ivar: 1929. Gunmen massacre seven people in the infamous St. Valentines Day Massacre. Al Capone is consolidating his grip on the Outfit in Chicago. But what if it turns out very differently?

Eagle: 1945. President Roosevelt, heading home from the Yalta Conference, stops on the Great Bitter Lake to meet King Idn Saud of Saudi Arabia to discuss a relatively new topic: Arab oil. And a Jewish homeland.

Roland: 1779. Captain Cook, famed explorer of the Pacific, meets his fate in Hawaii.

Scout: 278. Saint Valentine is beheaded near the Milvian Bridge.

Doc: 1945. The Dresden Firebombing. Kurt Vonnegut is in a slaughterhouse as the first bombers appear overheard.

Moms: 1946. The ENIAC computer, programmed by six women, is unveiled to the public. The press thinks the women are simply models.

The mission, as always for the Time Patrol, seems straight-forward: keep history intact. No matter the cost.

But this time, things go very differently than in previous missions and one of the team members must make the ultimate sacrifice.

FREE 12/13 and 12/14 Two Special Operations Thrillers in One

13 December 2018 11:57 (GMT)

Special Ops 1
CUT OUT and BODYGUARD OF LIES
[Image: 51UQymiMjsL.jpg]
wo great books by West Point Graduate, former Green Beret and NY Times Bestselling Author Bob Mayer.

Cut Out is a novel in the Green Beret Series and Bodyguard of Lies is a novel from the Cellarr Series.

Cut Out: Chief Warrant Officer and Green Beret Dave Riley returns in a contemporary thriller set in the shrouded, secret world of the federal witness protection program, where he discovers once again that no one can be trusted and the stakes are life itself.

Mayer's Green Beret hero, Chief Warrant Officer Dave Riley, returns to take on the mob and corrupt government officials in a well-paced but didactic tale about the compromising of the Federal Witness Protection Program. When Philip Cobb, former mob money launderer and current government informer, is murdered just as he is about the enter the Program, his wife, after calling an emergency Program number only to be nearly gunned down herself, turns for help to her brother, who contacts his old girlfriend, Donna Giannini, now a Chicago cop. Giannini in turn asks her old pal Riley to keep Lisa alive while she finds out what went wrong. The rest of the narrative pits the warrior skills and state-of-the-art special-ops technology of Riley and his men against two groups of professional killers and the heinous federal officials behind one of them. With its maximum quotient of action and violence, this entry should appeal to fans of the series.

Bodyguard of Lies:
"Thelma and Louise go clandestine."-Kirkus Reviews on Bodyguard of Lie.

Who polices the world of covert operations?

Enter the Cellar, the most secret spy organization hiding deep within the United States.

Two women become inextricably involved in a dangerous web of lies, intrigue, and betrayal as they fight for their lives and the safety of their country. Neeley is the lover and protégé of Gant, a Cellar operative, and trying to pick up the pieces of her life after Gant's death and unveil a mystery that he always held close. Hannah, a housewife, is equally lost after her husband disappears. They soon learn that the men in their lives shared a dangerous secret, one some very powerful people would shed blood to protect. Neeley and Hannah's meeting sets a decades-old plan into motion and puts their lives at risk.

They couldn't come from more different worlds, but as they try to escape the people who seem determined to kill them, Hannah and Neeley discover they have at least one thing in common: they've both been living a lie.

Crisscrossing the globe, the women find themselves in a deadly game of survival, one that they must win in order to keep the United States safe not only from vicious acts of terror, but from its own powers that be. And if they ever hope to uncover the truth about the lovers they thought they knew, Neeley and Hannah first must learn the truth about themselves. But when the Cellar is involved, there is no such thing as coincidence, and the truth is always protected by a Bodyguard of Lies.

Chasing the Ghost
Covert operative Horace Chase has been chasing ghosts his entire life. 

First, his Medal-of-Honor winner father who died in Vietnam without ever meeting his son. And left him the legacy of an automatic appointment to the Military Academy at West Point which shaped the next thirty-five years of Chase's life. Then, the ghost of his mother, who died while he was at war in Afghanistan and wounded, causing him to resign his commission and return to the United States, a lost soul. 

Chase now wears two hats as a Federal counter-terrorism liaison to the local police department in Boulder, Colorado where he becomes embroiled in two seemingly un-related cases. Working as a detective with Boulder PD he chases another death, this one the apparent rape/murder of Rachel Stevens, an upscale housewife attending night classes at the University of Colorado. And with his counter-terrorism team he is embroiled in a series of killings involving a militia group, a rogue ex-Special Forces officer, a psychopathic ex-CIA contract mercenary, and ruthless drug runners.

From the streets of Boulder, to the highest railroad tunnel in the world, to a swingers club hiding in plain site in suburbia, Afghanistan starts to look pretty good to Chase.

Independence Day (Time Patrol)
'The distinction between the past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.' [b]Einstein.

What does it take to change history and destroy our reality? Change events on the same date, 4 July, in six different years. The Time Patrol must send an agent back to each day, with just 24 hours for each to defeat the Shadow's plan to disrupt our time-line, creating a time tsunami and wiping our present out.

Doc travels to the 4th of July, 1776, one of the most important dates in American history where forces are at work in Philadelphia to add a Declaration of Emancipation to the Declaration of Independence.

Moms goes to Monticello exactly 50 years later, in 1826. The day on which two of the architects of that document and the country, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, die within hours of each other. What secrets do they hold close on their deathbeds? And who else might know about them?

Roland is at Gettysburg, the day after the Confederacy reaches its 'high water mark' with Pickett's charge on the 3rd of July 1863. But on the 4th, both armies stare at each other on a rainy day, waiting for the other to make a move. What if the Union attacks?

Ivar is in the same war, in the same year, at a victory that is over-shadowed by Gettysburg in terms of publicity, but of more value strategically, when Grant takes Vicksburg on the 4th of July, 1863. But what if this great victory turns into the Union's greatest shame?

On the 4th of July 1976, before there was a 'War on Terror', the Israelis launch a daring raid to free hostages at Entebbe. There is only one casualty in their force, the older brother of the current Prime Minister; what if that had turned out differently? Eagle is there to make sure it doesn't.

Scout travels furthest back, to the 4th of July 362 B.C. to the Battle of Mantinea in Greece, in which Sparta is defeated by Thebes in a Pyrrhic victory, leading to a third party uniting Greece: Philip II, father of a man who would change history: Alexander The Great. But what if Sparta wins the battle?

Section Eight
Captain Jim Vaughn is an officer in disgrace. Commanding a Special Forces mission to rescue hostages in the Philippines, Vaughn's team is destroyed, and when the smoke clears, he is made the scapegoat. Forced into the shadows by the scandal, Vaughn is offered a chance for redemption when he is approached by an enigmatic government agent working for The Organization, looking for a few desperate men.

The Organization pulled strings long before the founding of the United States. It dates back to the destruction of the Knights Templar and even further in history. As secrets from the Golden Lilly Operation and the infamous Unit 731 from World War II become exposed, Vaughn has to wonder who the real enemy is.

Section Eight are the men and women called upon by The Organization to do the impossible. They are the soldiers who have nothing to lose. They make up a top-secret unit tasked with suicide missions. 

Vaughn is given a group of men and women outside of the regular chain of command. These are men and women who have crossed the line one too many times. Drug users. Felons. The terminally ill. These are the soldiers that Vaughn must trust with his life. Even with a traitor in their ranks. 

A team of such unique properties is the perfect tool to use against America's enemies...and possibly America itself.
