I just wanted to thank everyone for the hugely positive reception for Combat Bureaucrat. I’ve seen so many posts, shares and likes over the past 48 hours and it means so much to me. I’ve spent four years writing this and you’ve made that time worth something.
The book, miraculously, is sitting in Amazon’s Kindle Top Ten for Biographies about the Afghan War AND Army Biographies in general. It’s all because of you.
Help me keep this going by leaving a review, however brief, on Amazon. I’m a one man shop. I’m the writer, editor, publisher and advertising department for this book and it’s going up against big books like American Sniper and Lone Survivor. Some of these books are published by big houses that hire people to buff up their reviews. Help me ensure that our story gets out there and stays out there for the world to see!
Again, thank you for everything. The past few days have been a dream come true.
I downloaded your book to my Kindle and started reading it. I’ve downloaded self published books before. I’ve only read the first 5 chapters, but for each chapter (and the prologue) the first page is missing. As in literally blank. I see the chapter number and the chapter title, but then there is a blank page, and the text starts again in the middle of a sentence.
I’m enjoying the book so far and I’m only skipping a little bit of it, but still. I do enjoy it, though, and when I’m done I’ll post my review on Amazon.
Thanks Maureen! I had one person tell they had a similar error yesterday. This person was reading on an iPhone. Tablets don’t seem to be affected, but I could be wrong. I’m actively trying to fix it right now. I think it has to do with formatting from an MS Word document to Kindle format. Sorry for the issue. I’ll fix it ASAP!
Great! You might also run a spell check and grammar check. I finished my reading and was honestly disappointed when it came to the end; I enjoyed the writing that much.
Aw, thanks! I’m really glad you liked it. I’ve sent an updated version to Kindle fixing the formatting errors along with a lot of spelling and grammar stuff that slipped the cracks.
I have the same problem. I guess I’ll have to put it aside until I can try it on my tablet.
So sorry that happened, Jazz. Fear not. There’s an updated and more multi-device friendly version live right now. To get it, just delete the book and reinstall it. Alternatively, you can update it manually from your Amazon account page.
