PDF and Mobi of “Updating Pritkin”

Thanks to the generosity of reader Nicholi Gold, there’s now a PDF and a .mobi version of “Updating Pritkin”! Due to the images involved in this story, I can’t really upload it to Smashwords, but this way, if any of you want it in your e-reader, you can now go snare a copy. And, of course, it’s also available here on the website (under the freebies tab) for anyone who just wants to read it.

Zombie’s Bite on Amazon

Hi guys,

Just a note about “Zombie’s Bite” for those of you who use Amazon/Kindle books. I wanted to get Dory’s latest story on Amazon because more people are likely to find it there. But, when I went to upload it, I discovered that Amazon doesn’t have a free option the way Smashwords does. The lowest price they’d allow me to set was ninety-nine cents. So, how do you get it for free on Amazon?

I did a little digging, and discovered that, if a story is available on other major retailers, Amazon will often price match. Right now, “Zombie’s Bite” is on Smashwords for free, and in a few days, will be at the other retailers Smashwords deals with, like Barnes and Noble. So, if you buy the book on Kindle, from what I understand (I don’t have a Kindle) there should be an option to request a price match. Please do so. Amazon will often lower the price on their site to match that of other retailers, which will get the novella offered for free to everyone.

If, on the other hand, you don’t want to take the risk of Amazon not choosing to price match (and sometimes they don’t) then Smashwords is your best bet. They have almost every e-book type imaginable over there, including .mobi which is readable on Kindle (click here to find out how) so you should be able to find one that works. You can also, of course, read the story for free on my site.

Thanks! And I hope you enjoy it, whatever format you get it in.
