    Alex. . . . . .

    Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book!  :)

    This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum.  Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

    A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

    --Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information.  You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

    --We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

    --While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days.  Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

    --We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

    --Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!  Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.  For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
    Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

    All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum.  Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

    Thanks for being part of KindleBoards!  Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

    The 100,000 word adventure/fantasy novel "Long-Fangs: The Union of Tribes" will be FREE to download on June 20th.
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0086X5XD2
    -----------------------
    DESCRIPTION:
    An immortal headhunter chief leads the last savage Amazonian tribes against a city taken over by Kurupuri, the evil jungle god. Its a story about guns versus arrows. Trees versus asphalt. Past over present. But most of all its a story about the dangers of the modern world blindly destroying its own mysteries.

    Sarah, an American journalist who arrives to the jungle to write an article on primitive tribes, finds out that her guide is a man of extraordinary extremes: a nineteen-year-old face with a five-hundred-year old mind, a headhunter but also a Harvard graduate, a fighter and a wise man all in one. Long-Fangs has one goal: to unite his people against the tree-cutting invaders, and one fierce enemy: a cold-blooded mercenary hired to kill him and wipe out his entire tribe.

    At first just an observer gathering information for the feature story of her life, Sarah joins Long-Fangs in his quest to unite the savage tribes, deep into a fantastic world untouched by civilization, and is soon forced to take a side: the strange, Cockney-accented mercenary, captured after a fierce battle, or Long-Fangs, a headhunter going to war against everything she regards as the civilized world.
    -----------------------------
    Some reviews:
    "The setting here is impeccable. This isn't a world of National Geographic tribes and work-a-day loggers. Cook has re-imagined the Amazon and its inhabitants, grafting his own hyper-stylized and violent world onto the familiar background of rainforest and river. This is a primal world in which headhunting chieftains can live for hundreds of years and battles are fought against a supernatural backdrop of good versus evil, light versus dark. And the end...whew! I didn't see it coming, but as I read it, I realized I should have. It made perfect sense."

    "The book is wild, mysterious, breathtaking and whenever you think you've got it figured out, it will surprise you yet again.
    Get ready to lose some sleep because once you get a little deeper into the story it will wake up the adventurer within you and will become impossible to let the book out of your hand!"



    merged with existing thread; remember -- one thread per book. :) further new threads will be deleted. -- Ann
