I have taken the plunge in the Kindle Select program that Amazon is using to promote readership for independent authors. This means my first novel, how the world ends, is available in the US Lending Library, and to Amazon Prime members. Instead of getting paid the full price, the author (me) will now get a royalty when the book is consumed in this way.
Also, it allows the author to promote the title for free for up to five days.
Therefore, as of February 24th (my birthday), how the world ends is free in the Kindle Store until the 29th.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
