Converting FREE Young Junius PDF onto your Kindle (FREE)

First off, I should mention that you can BUY Young Junius on your Kindle for the low price of $4.99 for a limited time. Go on, see how it looks! You can also try a sample from Amazon (see right side).

BUT, you can also join over 50,000 others and download the YOUNG JUNIUS full PDF for free right here! From there, I'm happy to include the following instructions on how to convert it for best reading on your Kindle.

[Note: this advice comes from the awesome Jason Mastaler who attended a talk I gave at Harvard a few weeks back. Thanks Jason!]

Once you have the Young Junius PDF, follow these instructions to get it onto your Kindle. (more after the break -- read more...)

Partnering with Scribd for Young Junius

Jeff Lund and his YJJeff Lund and his YJLongtime readers of this blog will remember when I spoke with Ransom Stephens about how he used Scribd to publicize his novel The God Patent

Well, now I've been lucky enough to partner with the good folks at to publicize YOUNG JUNIUS. All this week we're leading up to a rollout of the free PDF of the entire novel on the site. And things are popping off already!

We're serializing select chapters every day until then.

Monday saw the launch of Junius Gets the Nine - Seth Harwood (excerpt from YOUNG JUNIUS)

Today we posted Mourning Mother: Gail Ponds-Posey - Seth Harwood (excerpt from YOUNG JUNIUS)

and The Oracle: Marlene - Seth Harwood (excerpt from YOUNG JUNIUS)

So go on, head over to Scribd and Readcast these excerpts. You can choose to post them to your Facebook and Twitter accounts to really spread the word. Talk about what'd help? Thanks! (Readcasting explained here.)

If you want to know more about Scribd, follow them on Facebook or Twitter.

YOUNG JUNIUS on This Week in Books

Mark Jeffrey made the mistake of letting me put my mug up on his video show This Week in Books the other night. You'll see the video of the book and lots of your reader photos, but the downside is you gotta see me all close up to the camera for about half of this.

Here's the link to the This Week In Books website.

Click here to download this video from iTunes. Or just watch below. (Or on YouTube here)

Introducing YOUR Young Wednesday!!

Welcome to YOUR Young Wednesday!

As you all know, back on 10/18, Young Monday had to be postponed due to a lack of availability of YOUNG JUNIUS. Well, now it's widely out and available everywhere fine books are sold!! So let's green light this baby and rush it up the charts, buy some copies, and/or spread the good word to all we know!

The best way to help is to visit here often, send your friends over, Tweet about the book and post updates to your Facebook profile. For those less techy, there's very little as valuable as a good Amazon review, so please head here and write up a 5-star winner!

If you'd like to buy the book, which I hope you will (Big thanks to those who have already), you'll find a list of places online and local booksellers to get it on the left-hand side of this page. Whether you buy hardcover, paperback or support Amazon, B&N or your local favorite (find one on IndieBound if you don't have one) I'm just pleased that you and yours will have the book.

As always, you can get me to sign a copy if you buy it from one of these two stores close by my abode.

And that's all, folks, I'll be back Wednesday wherever you like to find me, marching on, pushing the needle, and shaking the foundation!

Thanks for your support!

PS: I'm coming to the East Coast!! I'll be in Cambridge, MA on 11/2, NYC on 11/3, and in Philly for Noircon on 11/4 and 11/5. More info here. Hope I'll see ya!
