Are you a subscriber to Kindle Unlimited?

If so, you won't find our books in this program. We would have to remove them from iTunes and Barnes & Noble.

You can find some short stories by John at Amazon

All three are very short.

All are about time travel.

All are a little silly.

How do I notify Amazon of a lower price?

The A Vested Interest books are available as e-books, and in some cases as paper books, from a variety of sources

You should be able to obtain a FREE copy of the first book in the series worldwide. In some cases though you may find it isn't free at Amazon in your country. If that is the case then use the links in the table below to get a free copy. Please tell Amazon it's free elsewhere.

How do I do that?

Here's an example. This applies to the UK but it works for other countries also:

Every month Amazon UK take out book out of 'Price matched'. They seem to do this until enough people tell them that it's free elsewhere. If you live in the UK will you help us to set it's UK price as FREE? This is what you have to do: 
1. Go to the Amazon page for the book at http://www.amazon.co.uk/ gp/product/B0047O2CQA

2. Scroll down and click the 'tell us about a lower price' link in the product details area.
3. Complete the small form. The book is available free at:

iTunes - http://itunes.apple.com/ gb/book/a-vested-interest/ id550312609 (Use this link in the UK)

Nook - http:// www.barnesandnoble.com/w/ vested-interest-john-and-sh elia-chapman/1102700645
Amazon seem to take the most notice of iTunes and B&N links (not B&N in the UK) but it's also available free at
Google Play - http://bit.ly/gImmGen
Smashwords - http://www.smashwords.com/ books/view/180258

Buying from Amazon

You don't have to have a Kindle. There are free readers available for Android, Windows and Apple phones, tablets and PCs.

Buying from Smashwords

If you buy a Kindle (.mobi) file from Smashwords, download the file than send it as an attachment to your kindle e-mail address. To find this, from your Kindle home page select:

Buying from iTunes

If a book is not available from the iTunes library, don't forget you can download the free Kindle app and buy your book from Amazon. Amazon books are often slightly less expensive since Apple rounds prices up to the nearest 0.99.
