Three If By Air

I've already downloaded it to my smart phone (I don't have a kindle...yet.)

This is a project that I dreamed up about 6 years ago and have spent roughly the last two years researching/writing/editing/blogging about it.

Thanks everyone for putting up with me this whole time.

Did you have an editor and publisher?

Editor yes, publisher no. With the current industry trends it is a stronger business model to self-publish than go through traditional publishers. Having gone that route in the past, so far I prefer this route.

I would love to buy your book and read it, but I don't see an option for .epub file download.
That's the only reader I use.
(Works really smoothly on my Android 4G phone...)

I'm a huge fan of Eric Flint's "1632" series of books of alternate history, and from what little I see in the Amazon blurb, you book appears to be in the same genre'?

Speaking of Eric Flint, might I suggest that you shop your tome to Baen Books?
They e-publish and anthologize a good many books like what yours appears to be.
http://baen.com/

Here's a synopsis of Flint's "1632"

"The Ultimate Y2K Glitch....
1632 In the year 1632 in northern Germany a reasonable person might conclude that things couldn't get much worse. There was no food. Disease was rampant. For over a decade religious war had ravaged the land and the people. Catholic and Protestant armies marched and countermarched across the northern plains, laying waste the cities and slaughtering everywhere. In many rural areas population plummeted toward zero. Only the aristocrats remained relatively unscathed; for the peasants, death was a mercy.

2000 Things are going OK in Grantville, West Virginia. The mines are working, the buck are plentiful (it's deer season) and everybody attending the wedding of Mike Stearn's sister (including the entire membership of the local chapter of the United Mine Workers of America, which Mike leads) is having a good time.

THEN, EVERYTHING CHANGED....

When the dust settles, Mike leads a small group of armed miners to find out what's going on. Out past the edge of town Grantville's asphalt road is cut, as with a sword. On the other side, a scene out of Hell; a man nailed to a farmhouse door, his wife and daughter Iying screaming in muck at the center of a ring of attentive men in steel vests. Faced with this, Mike and his friends don't have to ask who to shoot.

At that moment Freedom and Justice, American style, are introduced to the middle of The Thirty Years War. "

My book is written as if the rocket powered glider was a reality in the 18th century. Everything else is as historically accurate - or as accurate as it could be.

The series you're talking about seems more gritty than mine really is. I'm not looking for a publisher right now but it might be a direction I'll go if the eBook does well.

I'm working on other formats right now but as it stands it's only compatible with Kindle and Kindle clones.

You're right, the 1632 series does graphically depict the brutality of 17th century Europe in lurid detail, but it is a very accurate account of the 30 years war,..... except it has a 21st Century American town mysteriously plunked down in the middle of it by a time warp.

I'm still intrigued enough to read your book though, so please let me know if you manage a EPUB / Nook style format for it.

Kindle is available in many versions, including for Windows, iPad, Balckberry, Droid, etc for free, but don't worry, I'm working on getting a Nook version of my manuscript out there.

I posted half of the first chapter of Three If By Air on my website if you would like to check it out.

It's almost on the nook, but taking a bit longer than I was hoping due to some technical difficulties on my part with getting the ePub file just right.
