Today marks the start of Read an eBook Week, and this is my fourth year to participate with this group. You can check out their dedicated website at http://www.ebookweek.com – read an eBook Week is March 3rd – March 9th this year (and all month in Canada).
Long-time subscribers will recognize this week as a bonanza of free eBooks from a variety of authors and publishers, particularly the independent authors who may or may not have a presence on Amazon, but also those who don’t have the big marketing machines behind them.
To start this year’s Read an eBook Week promotion, author Steven Lyle Jordan (who has also participated for several years in the Read an eBook Week promotion) is offering a copy of his novel, The Kestral Voyages: My Life, After Berserker, for free; I just checked, and this is regularly $4.99 in the Amazon Kindle store. To receive this book, you can click here or type in http://smarturl.it/4knp8r into your computer’s web browser. Once you get to this page, choose the “Kindle/Mobipocket” version as it is the one that will work with your Kindle the best.
If you need some help transferring the book from your computer to your Kindle, you can click here or type in http://smarturl.it/xfer into your computer’s web browser to read my free guide on how to transfer content to your computer. This is the same guide I charge 99 cents for in the Amazon Kindle store, but you get it for free.
Here is the book’s description from the author’s website:
Carolyn Kestral, discharged Galarchy Ranger, begins a hopeful new life as a freighter captain and collects a small crew. But her decision not to tell her crew about the Berserker virus that forced her Ranger discharge comes back to bite her, creating a rift between her and her crew almost immediately. And there is a question of whether the virus is still capable of being activated, turning her into a deadly human weapon.
If the Berserker is merely dormant, will it be set off by a clandestine first-run and a dangerous encounter with the Spiders in deep space? Will her crew stick around long enough to find out?
First in the popular Kestral series by Steven Lyle Jordan, After Berserker treats the reader to fascinating characters, and shows us that diverse groups don’t have to be dysfunctional to be interesting. If you were raised on programs like the original Star Trek, or enjoyed the short-lived Firefly, you’ll love this book!
