I’ve totally put together an ebook, guys. It’s sci-fi, it’s got anthro robots, I think it’s pretty cool. It doesn’t have anything to do with Housepets, but I am selling it.

You can buy it for the low low price of $1.29 in ANY ebook format, PDF or just online, at Smashwords right here:http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/70010 . You can also preview the first half of the story to see if you want to buy.

Also, selling soon on Amazon, but you can get the Kindle version at Smashwords too, and I get a larger royalty, so you know.

    • Frank

      Never mind! Found the way. (Silly me. I thought the page list on the Table of Contents was supposed to actually work!)

      • SomeRandomGeekNamedBrent

        same thing happened to me.

    Okay Rick, you’ve got me hooked. Too bad I won’t be able to make online purchases for a month or so.

  7. GameCobra

    A nice read so far. It’s not my cup of tea at the moment, but in the future i might consider buying it =)

  8. AvanWolf

    Very nice read! You got my purchase. ^^

  9. zeroslash

    I’m reading it now, and I’m very much interested in this. Keep writing, Rick!

  11. stghost

    Just started reading it! And I can’t wait to buy it!
    Will have the money in a couple of hours ;)

    Great story so far Rick ;)

  12. Shanri

    Scary but brilliant O.o. Love it

  13. WraithFox

    …The story blew my mind

  14. Noxat

    Great story; became way more philosophical and dark than the cute cover would suggest! I think real ani-droids would be cool… or incredibly creepy, not sure.

    Rick, your work looks amazing. The first half you showed us was more than enough to secure a purchase from me when my entertainment budget “resets” for the month.

    I have one question, though! Is this story a one-off thing, or will you be making more in the same universe? I’m curious to see how it could all wrap up, since the first half left off where it did.

    $1.29 is only about a six miles worth of gasoline. Purchase of a book for that kind of money was a no-brainer. I’ll just ride my bicycle to work for one day and viola! sort of like taking money from the Sheiks and getting a free book out of the deal.

    Rick, I really, REALLY want to hear how this Smashword deal works out for you after you’ve had it up & running for a few months. I hope you get thousands of downloads – it might be just the incentive I need to dust off my half-completed novel.

    I’ll have to wait until I get home to read it.
