Why not use it to buy a fun read?
Unlikely Prophet, the prequel to the Sword’s Edge Chronicles is on sale for only $0.99.
This novel is unlike the others in the series, taking place on another planet, one in the throes of destroying itself. The people have retreated to living in domes, in constant fear of an earthquake or volcanic eruption ending their existence. The long-dormant portal activates, and an alien arrives offering hope. Despite their fears, few are willing to risk all to such a drastic scheme. One man becomes the force to impel his people to flee to safety before it’s too late.

I like a bargain (it must be the Scot in me), so I was happy to find this author’s site and her efforts to gather and share books for sale.
I was also fortunate enough for her to include my book in this month’s Deals and Steals! Thank you, Nicole Ciacchella!
Check out these books – there’s fantasy, urban fantasy, steampunk, oh yeah, and space opera!
In a conversation with another author recently, we talked about the genres in which we write. Although I write science fiction, I have two series which are vastly different. Deuces Wild is space opera, and briefly can be described as a cross between the movie (or better yet the book) Shane and the TV show Firefly. (That last is not my assessment either, but one my original editor used as comparison for the stories).
Book three is being written, and will be released in 2019, hopefully in the spring, but definitely by summer. And book one, Deuces Wild: Beginners’ Luck is currently on sale for a mere $0.99!
The other series has the feel of a fantasy world, with an agrarian culture, provincial lords, castles, capes, and swords. However, there is no magic, it’s just a forgotten alien technology that is beginning to be rediscovered. In trying to come up with a very short description for passersby at Cons, I finally came up with: “Pern without the dragons.” Which, if you like dragons, is very disappointing, but makes the point: Pern is not fantasy. The people came to the planet via spaceships, and through catastrophe, eventually lost all the technology they had. Eventually they began to rediscover it. (If you have thoughts on a better description for this sub-genre, I’d love to have the input, because trying to find where these books fit has been aggravating!)
So, if you like a fantasy-feel science fiction, you just may like the Sword’s Edge Chronicles. I have three books released in that series, with book four coming out within two months.
If you want to know a bit about their past, see some of the advanced tech they had at one time, and find out a little of the history, you could try the prequel: Unlikely Prophet, which is bit more “proper” science fiction with maglevs and people living in domes.
