I previewed it on the PW emulator, but I'd be glad to know how it looks on the real thing.

Are you up to the tavern already?

    I'm only on the 26th illustration and the 10,000th word of the next book. Clearly I'm going to have to work faster.

    Nice book, Jeff.
    I am reading it on my Fire.
    But I also downloaded it on my K2.
    The pics are nice even on that resolution.

    just sayin.....

    Lonely is the Soldier is an EXCELLENT book! Highly recommended to anyone who hasn't read it yet...

    Thank you, Jason. I've missed seeing you here and on FB.

    Lonely is the Soldier was my best seller for a long time, but it's been my worst lately. I'm hoping that giving it away will raise the visibility. It's currently #6 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > War and #38 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Genre Fiction > Historical. I don't know how long that will last after it costs $4.00 again.

    +1

    It's my fave of Jeff's with the two Treasure books coming in a very close second.

    I tried to get back into KB last year and for some reason I just can't get into it. No clue as to why, though... I still check periodically for activity on threads I have posted on. I'm still on FB a ton though!

    I hope your Lonely offer helps with the sales!

    Yeah, I just looked and you're as busy as ever, but only if I click on your name. Otherwise I only see an occasional post from you. I thought the baby must have you distracted, but I must have something set wrong. Bah.

    Agreed!  I think it's the best one too.  Still waiting for the sequel, though.  ;)

    It's great to see you here, Susan. I miss your regular contributions to KBoards.

    The Treasure of La Malinche, in two volumes is actually a sequel to Lonely is the Soldier, but I may write a sequel to those two books some day. I promised Scarlet that I'd finish Carpetbaggers, the sequel to the Johnny Comes Marching Home trilogy, after the King Arthur trilogy.

    I am excited.

    The 5th Century revisited through 21st Century eyes. - The legend of King Arthur comes alive in two illustrated books. The first book, King Arthur: Guinevere and Arthur begins with the rape by deception of Igraine, Arthurs mother, and carries us on a rough and tumble adventure to the deception of Arthur himself by his adulterous wife, Guinevere. The second book, King Arthur: Camelot, begins with Arthurs conquest of Rome, and carries us on Lancelot's quest to overcome his obsession with Guinevere.

    These illustrated novels are written for grownups, not for children. The content deals with murder, incest, rape and war.


    Both King Arthur books are currently in the Kindle top 100 for their genre (28 and 7). I'm not sure if I'll write the third book. I may have to resort to self-flagellation to make me finish Carpetbaggers.

    It's so nice to have a Fire so I can see the color illustrations.

    I read the first one as soon as I got it. I think I'll begin the sequel for my pre-nap reading this afternoon. My Fire should be charged up by then.

    I've written and/or illustrated about 50 books of various length since joining KB when the Kindle was new. If anyone's interested, the historical novels are at the top of this thread and the children's books are here.
