Dammit Dammit Dammit

My apologies to anyone who downloaded the first Kindle version of The Larks. For reasons best known to Amazon it formatted perfectly for the print edition, but then their own translation system - from their own print file - decided to eradicate 70% of the hyphens, ditch 20% of the italics and make up its line-break rules as it went along.

It's all fixed now, and includes a foreword by my brother Martin.

As an apology, it's available free in the Amazon Kindle store on Wednesday 24th April. UK readers can get it on http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Larks-ebook/dp/B00C9SZIPI/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1366705457&sr=1-1.  If you're downloading from outside the UK you'll need to search for Jem Shaw on your local Amazon Kindle store.

WhisperSync Auto Book Update

If you've turned on this new feature in your Manage Kindle area on Amazon then in theory your copy of The Larks should automatically update itself.  Mine hasn't so I have a suspicion that it doesn't work.  Hopefully it'll be mended soon though, so it should work eventually...
