Real Men



Do I have any readers out there in the blogosphere? If so, I have a REGULAR - as in NON-PORN - blog I'd like to share with you:


This author-friend of mine is trying to get some excitement built up around his debut novel. It's an urban fantasy 'bromantic comedy' he entered into the Amazon Breakout Novel Award contest and it has actually been progressing upward. Out of worldwide submissions, it's now one of only 250 still in the running for the Grand Prize (a publishing contract with Penguin Books).

Anonymously, I'm trying to help him out here.

So, come on folks! take your Non-Porn-Identity-Ass on over to have a look at the blog. There you will find a direct link to the Amazon contest entry. If you have a Kindle, or the Kindle App for your computer, you can download and read the first 3-to-5 thousand words for free!

And then go back and leave a review for the judges. Let them know you liked what you read and you're just itching to read the entire book.

Here's some incentive for you: If you do, these guys will think you are red-hot sexy!

Odd man out again. I have a Nook, not a Kindle, so I guess I can't read it. If this guy really wants people to rate it, he ought to put the first few thousand words up in a universal format like PDF.

... and here is a solution for this problem! Use the Calibre ebook tool (calibre-ebook.com) to manage your ebook collection on your computer. See my comment on the Deadheads site.
Being able to convert between Kindle and Nook formats solves the problem for me.

Eddie - thanks for helping out on that issue!

... but the easiest thing is, next to KindleForPC or KindleForMac ... I missed the author's comment that there are Kindle apps for the Nook. This e-reader stuff is way byzantine with too many options!

@ Eddie - ahhhh, my sentiments exactly!
