Sneak Preview: Mr. Penumbra's Twenty-Four-Hour Book Store


Thanks to MorBCN for the CC-licensed source image.

Coming Tuesday to Kindle and the web.

I’m pretty excited about this. I did a test download onto my Kindle and, wow! It really feels like you published something!

Bit of a surprise, though: I tried to make it free for Kindle download, but Amazon wouldn’t let me. Ninety-nine cents is the minimum. And yet, there is stuff in the Kindle store priced at zero cents. If you know the secret, and share it with me before Monday afternoon, I will price my story at zero cents. Otherwise, $0.99 it is.

Great waiting to read it.

I like the “It really feels like you published something!”

Can items from the Kindle store be downloaded as “regular” e-books? In other words, is there a way for the Kindle-less among us to read it?

Might I suggest making a MobiReader version? Folks can read on their PCs or (cough) Blackberrys?

Hmm, OK… was gonna do a plain HTML version (and I still will) but will add MobiReader to the mix. Looks straightforward enough.

Yay! Except that I broke my Kindle on the way to Charles de Gaulle, and will have to wait for Inkless 2.0 to arrive before I can read it.

The snarkmatrix awaits you
