Timely Persuasion is now available on the Amazon Kindle for the low price of $1.99. (I figure if you shelled out $359 for a Kindle you like to read and deserve cheap content.)
Don’t have a Kindle? Kindle books can also be read on the iPhone & iPod Touch.
No new bonus lyrical references this time around, though I am kicking myself for not quoting “I never did like it all that much and one day the axe just fell” when the narrator refers to his recent layoff from a dead-end job in Chapter 1.
Even if you already own the paperback it’s still worth checking out to show off to your friends while out and about. There’s a slick image of the LBDG 8 Track in Chapter 18. Plus it might help me justify the way too many hours I spent on Kindle specific formatting. (Props to KreelanWarrior.com for the helpful post on adding a cover image and table of contents.)
And since I don’t like watching anybody make the same mistakes I made, here’s a little tip: Images resized using the “Preview” application in Mac OS X 10.5 won’t render at all on a Kindle for some reason. You need to reopen and re-save the file using a different image editing program (I eventually used Seashore) for it to work. Only took me 3 days to figure that out…
