It's the Westerns category, but still counts right?!

See? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Bestsellers-Kindle-Store-Westerns/zgbs/digital-text/362294031/

Is that crazy or what. If anyone feels generous enough to help smash the sci-fi chart (its a sci-fi horror western) please please please feel free to download it before it goes full price on feb 4th. Thanks guys.

So we can expect the interactive fiction game to follow right? ;-)

I notice all your posts so far have been about selling something. If you post them in the For Sale area of the forum you are less likely to be suspected of advertising in the guise of posting.

I'm not selling. It's free. So not really appropriate for the For Sale area? It will be on Feb 5th though, I suppose, so if anyone wants to move it then, that's okay with me.

Well, I think what Rick was trying to point out that all of your previous posts have been to sell something, and this post isn't that much different - you are promoting your book.

What kind of machines do you collect or restore? (Or what did you used to collect/own?)

You might find this interesting. This might me up your alley. There's a yearly competition for "interactive fiction" games. (Old text based adventures/stories). This is one if not "the one" (http://ifcomp.org/). I think there are some easy scripting languages that make the programming part simple too but if you like basic it's sorta fun.
