… but I really do want to win a certain competition and I need your help to do it. I can’t stand self-promotion, as many of you know, so the prize has to be something ace for me to be asking you, and it is: an iPad.
You need to be an iPhone or iPad owner to help (or be able to ask someone who owns one to read this post).
You get a free story in return by the way. So this is the skinny:
Ether Books provide a free app for iPhones through which you can access all kinds of splendid short stories and things and I’ve been impressed with how they’re embracing tech to deliver quick reads for commutes and stolen moments in the day.
They’re running a sci-fi and fantasy short story competition, basically the author of the story with the most downloads wins an iPad. This is where you, kind iPhone / iPad owner come in
There are three steps:
1) Get the free Ether app – direct link in iTunes store
2) Search for my story
3) Download my story (and hopefully read and enjoy it!)
The competition runs for the rest of this week, so if you can do it right now, I’d be really grateful.
Getting the free Ether app – in pictures!
In case the pictures aren’t clear on your screen the steps are: Search for “Ether” in the Apple App Store (or click here to go directly), download it like any other free app, tap on it to open once downloaded.
Finding my story
You can search for “Emma Newman” and it should take you to this screenshot (I can’t check as I don’t own an iPhone!) You tap on “Free” to download it.
Let me know if you’ve downloaded it, so I can thank you and enlist heavy-breasted maidens to sing your name down the ages. Okay, maybe just the first part…
