    Hey good work. I have a favour to ask. You know how real books have a sort of blurb on the back cover that tells you something about the book and the story to give you a bit of a vague idea of if you want to read it? I don't suppose you could so something similar for your ebook?
  3. that's awesome, Pirx, congratulations! Here's hoping it will become a huge success.
  4. I know I am an evil person for being unconventional, but this is the text I have written as a blurb:
    "Finally!" is the prominent thought in my mind, as I draw the flat clothes bag from its storage compartment of the transport shuttle. Tightly packed together with the other passengers, everyone tries to prevent too much damage, while dressing up with the parade uniforms fashioned especially for this moment. I nearly rip of one of the epaulettes and barely stifle a laugh at the extremely silly sight we are offering. Yet as I realize what lies behind the airlock and the true scope of our mission, the same sincerity that reflects on the faces of my mates is taking hold of me.
    A loud medley surrounds us, as we exit the airlock and quite momentarily we are split up and allocated to our respective marching groups.
    Its a mixture of carnival and military parade being celebrated, but I ain't seeing much of it as we are walking our given route. I smile and wave alongside the others into the cameras flying all around and between us.
    My way ends after just a few minutes and I turn around and bow, before entering the quiet chamber before me. A mechanical voice booms: "Please undress your clothes and take a comfortable lying position on the safety lounger."
    And while I already feel how the cryogenic liquid is streaming along my limbs, my final thought is "This will be the adventure of my life!"

    Follow the adventures of the technician Helen van Scharl, as she awakes after a centuries lasting slumber aboard the generation starship.
    Can she succeed in preventing the total obliteration of the ship?​

    With the German print version I do have the German variation of that on the backside as blurb (I love that word! blurb blurb blurb!!!) and people keep telling me that they like it, so I believe I'll stick with it.

    Still so excited ^^

    RAZER Custom title ... uh ...

    Bought, downloaded and read the first bit (just 2% of the book) and I like your stile of writing already. Not sure how I'm gonna read it all, as reading on my phone is a pain in the butt, but I'll figure something out.

    Once you bought it, you can read it at any device. Even at a desktop PC or laptop.
