Got the books, that was the easy bit. Now to find time to read them! Maybe there's some spare under the couch...

I checked out the affiliate terms etc. The minimum payment seems to be $25, which isn't too bad, but for non US residents, they give the IRS 30% unless you fill out forms etc. so doesn't really seem worth it.

If anybody else here is an affiliate with them, I can add your details to the link from the banners, although obviously you'd have to be a member of this forum for a while.

Aye, the buggers take 30% off everything I earn, too. There's apparently an agreement in place between the US and Britain that taxes should be determined by the country of residence.

But the US ignores it. :)

Iain has fixed my FTP issues, so the 3 banners now display in a rotation:

A small but steady income would do for a start. :)

Thanks, guys.

*cough*

allbooksreducedto$2.99onSmashwords, which should filter through to the ebookstores eventually.

Which is less than £2 per book in Great English pounds.

Just saying, like...

*whistles*

I saw Jupiter and two of its moons through a pair of binoculars this evening...

Which two moons? Was one of them IO? Did you see a spaceship getting smashed to bits by rock hard aliens on it?

I'm just waffling because I've already bought all your books, but you already knew that.

:) The moons were just faint white blobs next to a larger white blob, so I couldn't really tell. I wish they'd been in colour like they are on TV.

And don't remind me about that game! Kids today don't know what hard means! (etc etc)

Hello folks

I have a new book out. It's called ANOTHER WORLD.

It's ace! It's apocalyptic! It's DRM-free! (And it's quite cheap). You can buy it for Kindle (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Another-World-e ... B008EV16CS) or from the Smashwords website (http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/169333). Smashwords has it in epub, mobi, pdf and pdb formats, amongst others. Nook, Kobo, Sony Reader, and iBooks versions are coming soon!

It's science fiction, and rather spiffy. More details (including reviews for my other books) on my website: http://theburrow.zzap64.co.uk/novels/ebooks.html

Thank you for your attention.

In a remarkably spammy cross-post, I am giving away one e-copy of Gordon's new novel, Another World, and also one e-copy of his novel Game Boy, on my "blog of the book", They Were Our Gods.

Exact details are in this post: They Were Our Gods - Day 44 - the Gods of print

You have until Sunday, and entry is very easy indeed... :wink:

Down the rabbit hole. :) Or if you read it out to yourself in a Lancashire accent, it'll have the same effect.

But quickly! Hie thee to Mr Moz's excellent blogspot and get it for free termsandconditionsapply!
