Free Young Adult Fantasy Novel ebook Starts at Midnight

Starting tonight at midnight, my young adult fantasy novel ebook, The Captive Dragon, is free from Amazon. This promotion lasts all weekend, ending Sunday night at midnight.

Book Description:

The Captive Dragon is a fantasy novel that tells the story of a band of small and powerless individuals who, lead by a young princess, combat the evil forces that threaten to destroy their country.

Princess Amandra uses her magical powers to befriend the dragon held captive by an evil magician. But are her powers a match for his? Will she succeed in freeing the dragon, while preventing war and halting the overthrow of her country? The Princess is betting everything that she can.

If you do an Amazon book search for the title: “The Captive Dragon”, it displays the 2001 Xlibris print edition’s plain cover. The Kindle edition is listed right below the Xlibris paperback. Click on “Kindle Edition” and that will take you to the Kindle ebook page, which has a colorful cover painting. This is the free edition.

I feel the Xlibris edition is overpriced, but authors don’t have the option of selling their books at a lower prices on Xlibris. I plan to create a new print edition that sells for about $8. Once that’s up, I’ll kill the Xlibris edition.
