The House of Jacquarelle (the Kestral Voyages) is now available on SteveJordanBooks.com:

The industry-controlling planetary governments of Lyrae Two and Lyrae Six have been enmeshed in corporate espionage for years, but it's beginning to escalate to dangerous levels. Carolyn Kestral and the crew of the Mary, as well as Coray Gheris of the Jovian Skies, get caught in the crossfire... and in the process, discover a shocking secret about one of their own!

Your favorite freighter captain is back, hauling goods, kicking a$$, and making the Galarchy safe one planet at a time! (Actually, in this case, two at a time... but who's counting?) This third in the series features the entire crew of the Mary, plus Captain Gheris and the crew of the Jovian Skies, and some new faces... some of whom might stick around!

In addition to background material and excerpts, the full novel is available for a great low price, in multiple formats and (say it with feeling!) DRM-free. Get your copy now, while the electrons are hot!

Sweet! Of course being in the deals/freebees section I am surprised you don't specify the deal?

Oh. Did I not mention that the DRM-free books are only $1.99? Terribly sorry!

Congratulations on the new book.

Certainly sir you must have missed a "1" on the front of that price. The combined brain power of the Amazon and Apple sales agencies are not able to perform an electronic sale and e-book download for less then $4.20. How is it possible that you can sell the entire e-book for less then half of that?

How? Because I'm in-saaane!!

Seriously: Amazon and Apple are pinning a lot of hope on making it big as resellers, but are also heading into too-Draconian realms as they try to out-compete each other. I predict a lot more pubs and authors will get tired of it all, and eventually see that going direct-sale makes more sense than losing more than half their profits to Amazon, Apple, and other similar stores. I only pocket 15% of the sale going through Amazon... I make more money off of 1 direct sale than 5 Amazon sales. (And because I'm a little guy, I don't see that many through Amazon.)

All that is needed (he said, rolling his eyes) is a good and popular portal or three promoting e-books, and earning their incomes from traffic as opposed to sales, to put indie authors and publishers on a more equal footing. If that happened, even Amazon and Apple may discover that in terms of e-books, their services are no longer required...

Do you have an E-Mail it to my Kindle feature on your Web site yet?

No: The buyer selects the e-mail address they want to have the book sent to, when they purchase it. Why won't that work for the Kindle?

Congrats on the new addition to the Kestral family, Steve. I've just bagged it and placed it at the top of my TBR list.

Got it and congrats on the new book!

While the special introductory price of $1.99 is highly appreciated, I worry the price will go too low. My motives are selfish: Steve makes money selling e-books, he writes more books, and I get to read them!

Well, things could always change... so, just in case, you'd better tell everyone you know to buy my books now, while they're cheap!

(I have selfish motives, too.)
