Because a lot of our promotional material invited readers to try this first in series free of charge from Amazon, and because Amazon began charging for this title without warning, we didn't have time to change the links. Which is embarrassing for me, and must be annoying for readers who thought 'yes, okay, I'll give this Indie author a try.'
I can only apologise. If you have recently downloaded this title from Amazon, and been charged for the ebook, you can return it for a full refund.
A RAUCOUS TIME continues to be a free read from all other major ebook sellers. Here are the links:
SMASHWORDS (all formats).
BARNES & NOBLE (Nook)
and all the links for Apple's reader:
United Kingdom: http://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/isbn9781301591558
We are also currently working on a way to make A RAUCOUS TIME available to download free from this website, and this will hopefully be in place by tomorrow.
Once again, apologies. If you wish you can tell Amazon that they're charging readers for a book that's as free as the air via other virtual bookshops. Here's the link to report a lower price: A RAUCOUS TIME and then click on the link 'tell us about a lower price'.
