If you happened to navigate in iTunes to "Books > Sci-Fi & Fantasy > Science Fiction & Literature", you would find Tritium Gambit listed under the featured new books. It's listed as "new" because I only recently added it to iTunes.

Honestly, I don't know how many people actually dig that deep into iTunes. Because I published the book there through smashwords, I don't have stats yet on how many downloads I've received so far. However, I have watched the book climb in rank to #22 in "Books > Sci-Fi & Fantasy > Science Fiction & Literature > Adventure" and #54 in "Books > Sci-Fi & Fantasy > Science Fiction & Literature", so I'm going to guess that there have been a few.

If you have friends who haven't read Tritium Gambit yet, tell them to get it while it is free. My new book, Mercury's Curse, will be on iTunes soon and is already on Amazon and Smashwords.

I released Tritium Gambit on Smashwords without DRM this morning. I hope (and expect) it will be approved for Premium Status, so that it will also be available for iBook soon.

I really like the Smashwords service, but because one upload is translated into many formats, they put certain requirements on your manuscript. I struggle with the lack of control over the first few pages of the book. The copyright page and title page aren't as pretty as I'd like. The rest of the book looks fine in my opinion.

I'm anxiously awaiting the return of my next book Mercury's Curse from the editor. I expect it sometime Sunday or Monday and then will prep it for publishing on Amazon.

I am giving Tritium Gambit away July 18th through the 20th. This may be my last give away, so get it while it is hot. I'm not sure that I will be renewing my membership in the Kindle Select program.
