Hexult is a book for Young adults (and not so young adults)
It is officially a science fiction book, but reads more as an adventure book

This is my first book, it was only six months in the writing, but over three years in the editing! But still not a bad achievemernt for someone who attempted his English exams five times before he passed.

Here is the blurb:
When the seas rose and the world froze, much knowledge was lost.

Mysterious twins, Jacob and Elya, shipwrecked in Hexult, discover their superior understanding of science is mistaken for magic by the superstitious islanders.

With the aid of Aulf the mailman and his fiery crewmate, Ingar, the twins must overcome terrible tragedy and danger, to save their reputations and their lives.


The book is available on Amazon.com
or Amazon.co.uk
or Smashwords:

I would love to have some feedback, even if you download the free sample and decide not to to buy the full book, I would love to know why.

Welcome to KindleBoards, Perry, 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.

Can't send Hexult to the printers as we cannot agree on a cover.
We were all set on a map, but some people felt it was to 'bity'
Spent some time and money on some artwork, but still not over the moon with it.
We would love to know what people prefer:

Reviews: Another 5 out of 5!
The reviews are flooding in. (well more of a slow trickle, but you have to hype it up a bit.)
That's 5, 5 out of 5's or five cubed.
And some of them weren't even bribed.
More promised on goodreads; at this rate, people may even start buying the thing  ;D
