Hello Ebook Readers,

I am Tracy Falbe, the author of The Rys Chronicles epic fantasy series.

I have attached the first book in this series: Union of Renegades.

It is a complete fantasy novel and I am the registered copyright holder. I give it away at my website http://www.braveluck.com as a promotion for the series. This series is also in print. I have chosen to share this novel at this forum, but I do not give permission for other people to reproduce or distribute it elsewhere. Interested readers may download it and hopefully enjoy. (In addition to MobiPocket, this free book is available in HTML, PDF, RTF, and LIT at http://www.braveluck.com.)

Here's the promo text from the back cover:

Dreibrand Veta has killed for his country. At the frontlines of imperial expansion, he seeks to rebuild the fortune of his noble family. In his daring travels he encounters the rys, a race far more powerful than the human empire that bred him. Dreibrand cannot defy the rys Queen Onja nor defend his companion, Miranda, and her children from the wicked tyrant Queen.

Desperate for help, Dreibrand and Miranda join Shan, a rys with emerging powers who plans to challenge Onja. In Shan’s pursuit of the rys throne, he exerts his magical powers, gathers his allies, and incites rebellion among Onja’s human subjects.

Great wealth and power will reward the kings, warriors, and spies that align themselves with the rys pretender, but defeat could mean worse than death. Onja can imprison souls and her genocidal rage is legendary. Everything is at risk for Shan’s union of renegades.


Readers from around the world have enjoyed this fantasy.

Thanks for looking!

Welcome, Tracy, and thanks for the option to read one of the books for free. I plan to do so shortly.

But I'm curious -- You list your device as the Sony yet the formats that are available do not include the Sony (it is easy enough to convert several of the other formats to the Sony one). Why?

Hi, Thanks for the question. I am planning on getting an ebook reader soon, probably the latest Sony model. I joined this forum in order to research ebook reading technology more thoroughly. So, I entered "Sony" in my profile because I had to enter something.

As for the Sony format of my ebooks, I have the rich text files right now, which I have confirmed with a user works on Sony readers.

I would love to be able to make actual Sony formatted ebooks, but I am not sure how. If you know of a resource where I could learn to do this and obtain the creator software, please point me in the right direction.

I think the best tools you can use are BookDesigner http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Book_Designer in which an excellent tutorial can be found at http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=10313 or Calibre at http://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/

I ran your lit version threw Calibre and in just a few minutes came up with a nicely formatted LRF version. Attached are some screen shots of the book from the Sony eBook Library software:
