PostSubject: My short stories on the Kindle!   Sat Mar 12, 2011 3:17 am

Hey guys

I recently published three short stories for the Kindle on Amazon, both the U.S. and UK sites. I could really use all the support I can get as quick sales and 4 or 5 star reviews quickly climb you up the Amazon ladder and gets your name out there.

Price at only $0.99 a piece (or 70 p) I don't expect to get rich off of these stories, but, as I eluded to above, they will help with notoriety, especially since my agent predicts an early 2012 release for my first novel.

So if you could help support a long-time brother I would greatly appreciate it.

Click here to take you to the U.S. page:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=jeff+menapace&x=19&y=18

And here for the UK page:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=jeff+menapace

Don't have a Kindle? No worries. You can download a FREE application for your PC or any other handheld device. You will see these options when ordering a story at the bottom right of the screen.

Thanks for listening guys. And if you happen to like what you read, please feel free to give a great review and/or click the 'like' button. If you don't like the stories, keep your opinions to yourself! Laughing

Thanks so much

Jeff

Should have two more available by tomorrow or Thursday, assuming uploading goes okay. Still only $0.99 or 70p a piece.

Thanks! Very Happy

The two new ones are up, plus a brand new third released today! These are quick reads--1,500 words each--and a great way to pass the time on the toilet, in the doctor's office, waiting for your girl to try on clothes etc.

Check 'em out!

I'm having nthing but trouble getting Amazon to believe I have installed a registered the Kindle on my laptop even though I have of course!

I've been thinking about buying a "proper" one as I travel a lot and always end up carrying loads of books. Are they good? Would you recomend one? Can you get most books on them?

Hmmm...I have another friend that's having that same problem, Peter. Are you doing it from a personal laptop or a work-related one? As far as the Kindle itself goes, yes, they are excellent and I highly recommend them.

Hmmm...that's weird, Peter. It happened to another friend of mine and I don't know why. Do you have an iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, or Android perhaps? You could download it to them.
