Lexi Revellian (lexirevellian) | 7 comments Well, this is a quiet and select group, but I think it could meet a need. When you've paid quite a lot for a Kindle or other e-reader, it's good to find some bargain reads.

So...with a certain predictability, I'm going to suggest my ebook, Remix, currently selling for £0.86 or $0.99, available on Amazon and Smashwords in all formats. It's been bouncing around in the top 500 Paid in the Kindle Store UK for the past week. This was a recent comment on KUF:

I finished the book on the way home from work last night, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was totally engaged the whole way through, waiting to find out what happened next. The characters were easily visualised and I cared about what happened to them. I work in Hackney, so I found that the familiar setting also drew me in. I knew nothing about rocking horses before starting the book, so that was something new and interesting, and gave the book a very unique flavour... I'd highly recommend this book and can easily imagine it being adapted for television - I'd definitely watch.

Lexi Revellian (lexirevellian) | 7 comments Hi Tomothy, have you joined this group? Hurrah! It's select to the point of being practically dormant, I fear...

Perhaps we should throw a party and invite everyone?

T.J. Frost | 3 comments That sounds fun! We can offer virtual plonk at $0.99 a glass, and free readings of excerpts from selected novels by up-and-coming British authors. - Tim

Lexi Revellian (lexirevellian) | 7 comments Who could resist?

One suggestion, if the drink is virtual, it might as well be Bollinger. And we could have home made crisps sent round from the Savoy, nicely presented in Ming dishes.

T.J. Frost | 3 comments Yum, yum. Planning this party is certainly more fun than thinking about my new book! And it even looks as if I am working!

Lexi Revellian (lexirevellian) | 7 comments Grace, thank you. How few people recognize my awesomeness...


message 11: by Grace (new)

Grace Elliot (httpwwwgoodreadscomgraceelliot) It's special talent Lexi - recognising awesomeness - plus I've got the word stuck in my brain, it seems so apt in so many situations (I have my teenage sons to thank for implanting the idea!)
Have a good evening.

Lexi Revellian (lexirevellian) | 7 comments Lol - agreed. I got the word from my daughter and wouldn't be without it now.

Lexi Revellian (lexirevellian) | 7 comments Ooh, Alex, I don't know...$2.99 is pricey by the standards of this thread. Got anything cheaper?
