I got permission from my editor to post the first six chapters of my first novel, The Skewed Throne, the first book in the Throne of Amenkor series, over the course of six weeks . . . and this is the final week! The idea is to give readers a chance to read a significant portion of the book to decide whether or not they might like the book, and hopefully entice them into buying the book as well. Here's the sixth and final chapter to be posted online (along with the link to the first five as well). You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader (free download here) in order to read it, since it's a pdf file. I found that it wouldn't open in AOL, but it does open in Explorer. It seems to work on most browsers actually.

I'd appreciate it if you could post a link to this blog entry in your own blog or website or on Facebook, to help promote the postings of the chapters. Thanks!

These are the actual page proofs from the book, if you're interested in seeing what those look like.

Skewed Throne: Chapter One
Skewed Throne: Chapter Two
Skewed Throne: Chapter Three
Skewed Throne: Chapter Four
Skewed Throne: Chapter Five
Skewed Throne: Chapter Six

I thought I should remention that all three of the books are available on Kindle now (where before only book 3 was available, which made no sense). Here are the links to the kindle versions: The Skewed Throne, The Cracked Throne, and The Vacant Throne.

Also, I'm currently running a few holiday specials, one for hardcovers and one for paperbacks:

Hardcover Deal: You can buy all three hardcovers of the books for a total of $30! That includes shipping.

Paperback Deal: You can buy all three paperbacks of the books for a total of $20! That includes shipping as well.

If you're interested in any of these deals, contact me at jpalmatier@sff.net and we can arrange payment and get address info, etc. Individual hardcovers and paperbacks are available as well at $15 and $8 respectively (shipping included). Just let me know what you're interested in! All prices are for the US shipping only. I can give you a quote for international shipping if you get in touch with me.

Also, I intended to do this as a holiday special, and I still intend to, but I figured I'd mention it now. I'll have two deals running this holiday season, one for hardcovers and one for paperbacks:

Hardcover Deal: You can buy all three hardcovers of the books for a total of $30! That includes shipping.

Paperback Deal: You can buy all three paperbacks of the books for a total of $20! That includes shipping as well.

First off, I want to thank everyone for the condolences and commiserations over the death of our guinea pig, Missy. I haven't been dealing with it all that well, which is why I haven't really been posting anything lately. I'm surprised how hard it hit me. I've lost many guinea pigs before but it doesn't seem to get any easier. This was the first guinea pig loss for my partner . . . which means we went out earlier this week and started searching for a new one. I figured it would take a while to find one, because I know that you need to get them very young and small if you want to raise them right, and typically the pet stores and such don't have them young enough. But of course we found one right away. So we have a little munchkin in the house now, temporarily nicknamed . . . Munchkin. I'm certain this name won't stick but it works for now. Pics coming soon. Yesterday, due to my intervention, she discovered that THERE'S ANOTHER GUINEA PIG IN THE HOUSE! Along with HE'S ONLY A FOOT AWAY IN ANOTHER CAGE! She hasn't shut up since, trying to get him to talk to her. She's also decided that climbing the side of her cage is fun (trying to get to the other cage I assume . . . or at least catch a glimpse of him).

In any case, life goes on. As you know already:

I got permission from my editor to post the first six chapters of my first novel, The Skewed Throne, the first book in the Throne of Amenkor series, over the course of six weeks. The idea is to give readers a chance to read a significant portion of the book to decide whether or not they might like the book, and hopefully entice them into buying the book as well. So far . . . it doesn't seem to be generating any additional sales. At least none that I can track. But in any case, here's the third chapter (along with the link to the first two as well). You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader (free download here) in order to read it, since it's a pdf file. I found that it wouldn't open in AOL, but it does open in Explorer. It seems to work on most browsers actually.
