Gaming the NYT Bestseller's List

Came across a very interesting article where some suspicious types took a look at the dramatic rise of a YA title called Handbook for Mortals.

Some great detective work and an interesting look at both group investigation and how systems can be played.

Indexing

27 August 2017 15:06 (GMT)

Hi. 
I recently uploaded a document (.docx) to my Kindle Paperwhite via email. When I try to search in the document I get a message that the document is not indexed. What exactly does this mean and is it possible to correct it?
Thanks

Kindle e-reader or fire ?

24 August 2017 22:07 (GMT)

Hi 
This my first time here so hello to everyone
I have had my kindle for a while now so this might seem a bit of a daft question.
I am about to buy my wife a  kindle and I'm not sure which one to get.
She loves reading but likes to surf the net so I'm trying to weigh up my options.
The e-reader one or the kindle fire...I know with fire you can access 
the internet but I'm not sure if she would use it for that.
Any thoughts welcome 
Derek

Good news for indie authors - a new income stream coming soon!

25 May 2017 14:29 (GMT)

Great news for readers and writers. Public Lending Right (PLR) has finally been extended to include ebooks

This complements the legislation passed in the Digital Economy Act 2010 which extended PLR to audiobooks and on-site loans of ebooks.  This means that authors will receive PLR payments for remote loans of their ebooks. The Digital Economy Act 2017 now completes the picture to ensure authors will receive their PLR payments for books and audiobooks, ebooks and e-audiobooks whether loaned in the library or remotely. With an increase in the number of loans of ebooks to around 4 MILLION this year this is not a moment too soon.
PLR will soon be updating their system for registering ebooks.  If you are an author and haven’t yet registered with PLR, you should to make sure you receive payments due to you. PLR for ebooks and audio books loaned remotely will apply to loans made after 1 July 2018.  Payments are due to be paid in arrears in early 2020. The rate of payment remains the same as for physical loans 7.82p/loan with a cap of £6,600.

Lost Girls

30 September 2017 14:30 (GMT)

“ . . .delivers top-notch action and adventure, creating a full cast of lethal operatives armed with all the latest weaponry. Excellent writing and well-drawn, appealing characters help make this another taut, crackling read.” Publishers Weekly
[b]LOST GIRLS[/b]
[b][Image: 51EcpfFrpUL.jpg]

Who polices the world of covert operations? Enter the Cellar, the most secret spy organization hiding deep within the United States.

Deep in the forests of Kentucky, a girl is held captive.

In Oklahoma, a young preschool teacher is murdered in front of her students.

In the Panhandle of Florida, a college undergrad is kidnapped from a nightclub.

These seemingly unrelated crimes catch the eye of the Cellar, the ultrasecret cell of operatives set up to police all other government agencies. Cellar operatives Gant and Neeley, along with profiler Susan Golden, must track down those responsible. But these are not ordinary criminals. They are a highly trained Special Forces sniper team. Crisscrossing the United States as new Cellar head Hannah Masterson calls the shots from up high, the Cellar operatives soon find themselves being targeted. Whoever is behind this knows the ultra top-secret Cellar's tactics all too well.

Free Today: Rest In Fear 2

22 September 2017 08:54 (GMT)

Rest In Fear 2, my second Kindle collection of 12 short horror/dark urban fantasy/simply weird stories, is free today.

Rest In Fear 2

The stories range in style from the bizarre through darkly humorous to distinctly nasty, with topics ranging from serial killers to vampires. There's not a lot of blood 'n' guts - some but not a lot.

I'd love to hear what you think.

The Green Berets: permanently free. "A scorcher!" Stephen Coonts

21 September 2017 13:20 (GMT)

The Green Beret series: Over 1 Million Sold.[b]

Eyes of the Hammer by NY Times Bestselling Author, former Green Beret and West Point Graduate, [b]Bob Mayer
, is “Exciting and authentic! Author Mayer, a Green Beret himself, gave me a vivid look at the world of the Army’s Special Forces. His portrayal of Green Beret operations and techniques takes you deep into the world of Special Operations.” W.E.B. Griffin.

A US Special Forces team lead by Green Beret Dave Riley is on a top secret mission to take down drug traffickers in Colombia, but while doing so they are faced with betrayal by their own government.

The team is carrying sterilized weapons and unmarked uniforms and the operation is “off the books.”[/b][/b]
[b][Image: 51LxZcYa3lL.jpg]

Of course, nothing is as it seems, especially once the CIA gets involved. Throw in an Israeli mercenary and betrayal, and Dave Riley and his team soon find themselves wondering what the real mission is and will they become collateral damage from all the double-dealing going on back in Washington.

Eyes of the Hammer is the first book in the bestselling Green Beret Series written by a man who has “been there, done that.” In the vein of Sicario. The next book, Old Soldiers, will be out in Spring 2018.
