Amazon has made…

…four of my books part of its new Kindle For The Web marketing program, their answer to Google ebooks. It’s a cool thing to check out, even if you have no interest in me. Just click on any of the links below, and once you’re on the Amazon page you’ll see a green box in the right-hand column that says “Read first chapter free.” Click that and you’ll get said chapter on whatever screen you’re reading now.

Give it a shot. It’ll only take a couple of minutes of your time to read.  You have nothing to lose–and you might gain a few laughs at my expense.  Many thanks.
