    I don't know if anyone would be interested in this but seeing how I'm getting few sales on Amazon, I thought I'd start shopping it around the free circuit to generate some reviews/publicity. I'm working (with what little free time I have) on subsequent books for the series, including a novella I plan to release, but I thought that in the meantime I'd see if anyone might be interested in this.

    About the book:

    "The Sphinx Gambit" is a novel set in a zombie apocalypse that focuses on a female protagonist who is offered a cure for an infected child if she'll play a game of riddles with a man calling himself the Sphinx. This isn't your typical zombie novel in that the focus isn't as much on the horror of the zombies as it is on the play between various characters as they work toward their own goals within a city overrun by the undead.
    So, all this said, if you download it and enjoy it, please consider leaving a review on the Amazon page (linked at the end of the book). I'm not asking you to buy anything or try to upsell you on something you don't want, I'd like to hear peoples honest opinions. Some things will probably need work but all in all, I plan to go forwards and find a publisher for subsequent books, so showing a track record of actually making sales/reviews wouldn't hurt, right? Besides, free is good.

    Unfortunately since URLs aren't allowed, you'll have to PM me or indicate here you'd like to check it out. I'll PM you the links (They're direct ones) to the PDF/MOBI and EPUB. Once again, completely free, so please feel free to give me a shout if you think it's something you'd enjoy.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.

    I am the author, yes.

    Whether my post count isn't high enough or that I don't have a donor account, I can't post URLs here or I would have. I've sent PM's to those who expressed interest. I'll try and post the url when I've gotten the donor thing going on.
