Hello Kindle fans
« on: May 28, 2009, 11:19:36 am »
My name is Michael Eads and I have just released: An Angry Mother Earth.  It is my first attempt at the fascinating world of science fiction.  It is based upon a recurring dream I had about the end of all things known.  Its not long but I feel it packs a pretty good punch for just over 3,000 words.  Please give it a try.

I also wrote a book about the challenges of divorce called: A Mans Feelings, Finding Closure after Divorce.  It is a real life story of ones personal struggle and subsequent redemption from the tragedy of divorce.  It was released last summer on paperback and more recently on the Amazon Kindle.  Yes, the diverse spectrum of writing a book about divorce and science fiction has been challenging.  Right now, I am working on the final touches of my new book.  This book is tailor made for the Kindle.  I will divulge more on that later as my publishing date approaches.  I am extremely lucky to have a publisher that is very proficient in formatting my books for the Amazon Kindle.

Best wishes and happy reading.

    I don't understand why the discounted purchase price is higher than the list price, for An Angry Mother Earth.  Not by much, but I've never seen that before.

    I dont know why they posted my story: An Angry Mother Earth higher than the list price I requested. I just wanted everyone to know that it was not my idea. Perhaps its because I have had a book listed on Kindle for awhilewho knows?

    Hello Michael, welcome to the KB.  The same thing happened to me for a while when I dropped my prices.  It was very confusing, but finally worked its way out after much hooting and hollering on my part which had no effect whatsoever on the Amazon people, but made me feel better!  LOL  ;)

    Hello Michael,

    It sometimes takes a couple of days for the new, lower price to get updated properly. When that happens, you get the disparity that you're seeing. Just let everyone know when the new price takes effect, and it'll be corrected soon enough.

    Yea, 'cause if we are interested, we are certainly going to wait it out with you... I mean the lower the price the more we can load up on! ;D

    You were right Greg. They updated my story: An Angry Mother Earth to the correct price of 0.80. Thanks for the heads up. Mike
