My short story "Completing the Cycle" is now free to download and read on Amazon US and Smashwords.

I have a short story collection "The Smell of Magic and other Stories" available on Amazon and Smashwords and hope you'll enjoy this story enough to consider buying the collection of 8 more.

A group of scientists and archaeologists travel to an abandoned alien world and try and work out why the aliens left and where they went. As they explore the city, the scientists feel the alien presence more and more strongly and eventually it starts to affect their behavior and judgment.

A 4,000 word SF short story of alien contact.

Amazon US

Smashwords

Many thanks

Mike

Welcome to KindleBoards, Mike, and congratulations on your book!

(If you've gotten this welcome before, it's just as a matter of housekeeping. We like to put a copy of the "welcome letter" in each book thread. It doesn't mean you've done anything wrong, it just helps us know that you know the rules.)

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--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

--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).

--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 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.

Oh, and one more thing: be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

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

Amazon have finally price-matched "Completing the Cycle" on Amazon.com and it is now definitely free to download (it was free then wasn't...).

The story is still free on Amazon.co.uk and on Smashwords, but was free for about 2 hours on Amazon.com :-(

Hi Mike
How do you set kindle ebooks to free?
I can't seem to take my book below 99 cents.
Hi Art,

You have to publish through another channel, such as Smashwords.com and get the book onto iBooks and B&N. Then Amazon will price match it to free.

Amazon.com have finally matched with B&N and Completing the Cycle is free on Amazon.com now:

and currently #9 in the Free SF chart.

It seems I'm having trouble getting smashwords to accept my manuscript up to the enhanced status.
But thanks for the info.

best wishes
