Re: Ideas for marketing a Kindle novel?
That's a bit better than the one I read earlier, maybe I read it before it was fully up?

That's not too bad I suppose, but maybe if there was a small paragraph detailing the dragon (Wrack I'm assuming) knocking her plane out of the sky quoted directly from the novel (so italicise it, and openly quote it), then have a new paragraph of your voiceover artist.
That could work.
It's definitely an intriguing book though from all I've heard of it, if I can get hold of a hard copy I'd buy it for a friend's birthday (which just passed) or Christmas (which hasn't passed).
