I am the author of The Companion of Lady Holmeshire. I see that my book has been read here many times.

As an author, I appreciate those who read my book and those who will read my future books. Of course, having spent a year in writing it and quite some work to get it published, I would also like to make a living at it. Since it is here, however, I am happy to talk with those who have read it and get your thoughts.

I have recently revised the book and would prefer you were reading the new version. It was revised after a year of studying writing, and it is in better form. The book will be free on Kindle next weekend. Please obtain the book from Kindle so that it is in keeping with my contract there. I am happy to run the occasional freebie there because Kindle does a great job of promoting my books during and after a freebie.

I would appreciate hearing your thoughts on The Companion of Lady Holmeshire.

Edited to add: I found this site because of a Google alert for Holmeshire. I see that someone has requested the book be uploaded in epub format. Because of Amazon's exclusivity contract with my publisher, the book is not currently available in that format. I could actually be kicked off of Amazon all-together because of a breech of my publisher's exclusivity contract there. That might even include that it is being read here.

Please, if you want to read the book, read it via Kindle. If you do not own a Kindle, you can get Free eReaders for iPhone, WindowsPC, Mac, Blackberry, iPad, Android and Windows Phone 7. A free Nook for PC is also available, though my book is not currently available on Nook.

Find any book on Kindle and at the right are options to read it without buying a Kindle.

Welcome Debra and thanks for telling us about your book.  It sounds like you have put a significant amount of time and effort in your book. Congratulations on getting it published.  Although it probably is no longer free, I will go look for it.  I have received a number of free books from Amazon over the years and really appreciate it so that I get to know the authors style before purchasing subsequent books.  Because they have done this, I now look for my favourites authors to purchase books.

Thank you, Shorty! That is much appreciated.

I'm wondering how an ad got posted as if in my name....

The ads are automatically added to whoever starts a thread.  I guess it must help defray the cost of the website.
