The Book Bazaar / Re: News from Alterra--of Elfhunter and Outcaste!
« on: March 11, 2010, 04:29:08 PM »
OK, I keep reading about it...but when am I going to be able to buy a copy of Outcaste?  I am so looking forward to this book.  The trilogy was just absolutely amazing.  I am a hooked reader for life! Again, oh when oh when are we going to be able to get hooked again?

Congratulations to you three!
You will be hard pressed to find a better book to read.  It is icing on the cake that the author is so amiable as well.

If I had to guess, I believe you have it correct in your signature.  Unfortunately, using the Kindleboards referral code in the link (for all 3) caused you to go over the 750 char limit for the signature.  You can evidence this by seeing some of the code below the links that you currently have, the code for the link is not complete.

To get all three (with the Kindleboards referral link still attached to each) I would suggest saving the images you use on your site, and making sure the path to them is as short as possible (the path to the image on Amazon is rather lengthy). 

PM me if you need any assistance with it.

Woohoo! goodbye evil James Patterson book sample!

Let's Talk Kindle! / Re: Amazon Recommendation - Not very personal

I too have noticed that the suggestions provided by Amazon are really lacking.  No reason to really have this service if the implementation of it is so bad...

Either way anyone that does not take advantage of this bargain just doesn't want to read books.


Especially these books, they are fantastic!  Roughly halfway through #2 and it keeps getting better.

I am currently reading the second book, it really just picks up the pace of the first and keeps going.  Great great enjoyment from this series so far.

I think every person I have showed the Kindle to has thought it was a touchscreen.  Luckily most have asked before they start pressing on the display.  But there have been a few who can't resist exploring on their own.  No damage as of date from curious onlooker's incessant pressing of the display  :D

I haven't seen the printed version of the books yet, but as far as I am concerned with the Kindle edition, I think it would be better to stay the course.
I think that once you have read three books all of the same format, to switch would lose a little of what you had intended in the first place.
My vote, stick with what you have been doing.

I am truly enjoying the Elfhunter series so far. Details make a book great for me, and so far this series have them aplenty!

That is really kind of you Archer. A map is important to me, I like to note the direction of travel throughout the story, it helps me "live" through the characters.

I am up to chapter 5. This book has a very quick pace so far. I am enjoying it much. I am eager for our 2 wood elves, but wary for them at the same time.

On a side note, I just finished the Farseer Trilogy by Robin Hobb. She used italics to represent the mental link of the Skill when conversing between characters. It took me a chapter or two to finally break the habit of thinking the elves conversations were being held in their minds when that was not the case at all!

Archer,

One question to you though...

I looked over the kindle book, looks like there won't be any illustrations?  If so, do you have a larger pic of the map of Alterra online somewhere? I looked over the map that is on your website, but it was a bit too small for my eyes to see everything.
And seriously, you did the cover art and the illustrations in the book (besides the map), Jack-of-All-Trades I must say!

Finally finished the Farseer trilogy. Now I can move onto Elfhunter. Have all three loaded up on the Kindle and ready to go.  One thing I noticed (and quite happily I might add), these are not small books.  I am looking forward to them.

Awesome! Darned Wizze, feel free to snap a pic to show your JavoEdge Oxford Flip Case for the Amazon Kindle 2 ~ are you sporting it with a decal skin or no?

No decal skin.  I am not one to "jazz" up the looks, I went with the case to primarily protect the device.  This is one aspect the JavoEdge does very well.  But to be honest, the case itself does add a bit of sophistication to the device!

I am probably at about a book a week.

My wife is probably around a book a decade...

I might have skewed the survery, then again, nobody asked  :D

Just a reply to rave about JavoEdge Oxford style flip K2 case...
I absolutely love it. I must say the fit and finish are very good, and with the coupon code it ended up being quite a steal of a deal. I like that the flip style cases have the magnetic closure, I was curious though, why not put the magnetic closure on the stand as well? The snaps are very secure, but it seems like the magnets would be easier to open one handed than the snaps.

All in all though, a great case for the money spent.

Archer,

I have been lurking on this forum and the Amazon fantasy forum for quite a while now. I am constantly seeing posts concerning you and your works. I finally looked deeper into your works and I must say, I will be buying all three for my kindle. Looks to be right up my alley.

I think the one major reason I want to read your books though resides with you...Who wouldn't want to read a book authored by one who is so involved with their story? I have looked over your website and I must say I am impressed.
Looking forward to starting the trilogy, it has been bumped up to next in line!

If you end up with additional DTBs, I would love to have an inscribed book, it would be icing on the cake!!

ps... I absolutely loved the trailer for your works. Talk about a wonderful way to showcase a book! I loved each aspect of it, and found out later that you performed the music and sang?? Very nice indeed.
