First Light Chronicles Freeground: Now Available From Mobipocket For A Penny

As most of you know you can get the novella: First Light Chronicles Freeground for free from this site. What a lot of people don't know is that I started hosting those files myself because Mobipocket (probably due to some simple system or marketing limitation), couldn't let me offer Freeground for free through their site.

After getting firm confirmation that I couldn't add the book to their aging Free Ebook program, I decided that if I couldn't post it there for free, the least I could do is give it the lowest price possible, $0.01 US, yes, that's one penny. The only drawback to getting your EBook file from them is that it's DRM protected. The brighter side to getting your copy for a penny is that it will appear in your Mobipocket library along with all your other books. I know I like having a backup of purchased books online personally just in case all my computers and such all die at the same time (shudder).

Anyway, other sites such as will soon have this book at $0.49US, which isn't a penny, I realize but it's as close as I could get it without triggering problems with Mobipocket partners down the road.

So there you are, another way to have a copy of this book around for as near to nothing as I could manage, and an easy way to spread the word and get your friends involved with the entertaining universe of the First Light Chronicles and Spinward Fringe. Spread the word, enjoy the read, Freeground is (almost) Free!

Oh, and just in case you're afraid of them disappearing, you don't have to worry; those links to the totally free PDF and PRC/MOBI files will remain on the right hand side of the site for all eternity or the collapse of civilization or until I run out of bandwidth, whichever comes first!
