    Haven't checked it out yet as I'm finishing off a series I am reading. I'll read it after I'm done.

    Some pretty cool news: The contracts have been signed and Flank Hawk will be translated and released in Spanish.

    No solid timeline, but still pretty neat if you ask me.

    Flank Hawk is the first novel in the First Civilization's Legacy Series (followed by Blood Sword and Soul Forge). If Flank Hawk does well in Spanish, the other two are likely to follow.

    Halcón Flanqueador has been released and is now widely available (Flank Hawk's Spanish translation).

    Marketing a book in a foreign language is proving interesting :)

    Here's a link to my blog listing many spots where it's available, and also a straight on digital picture of the cover:

    For some reason Amazon UK has drastically lowered the price for Flank Hawk (and my other titles, just not quite as much).

    Flank Hawk is currently £1.36 for the Kindle version and £1.43 for the print version.

    Here's a link: Flank Hawk on Kindle UK

    Obviously I don't know how long the discount will last. Previously it went two days and another time with one of my titles it went for two weeks.

    Funky. I take it this is something that just happens outside of your control and with no pre-warning from them (I get that impression from your post)?

    That is correct. Svrtnsse. Neither I nor my publisher can tell Amazon UK to sell the print edition of Flank Hawk, for example, at roughly an 84% discount Blood Sword's print at a 51% discount and Relic Tech's print at an 82% discount. Publishers (self and publisher) can manipulate Kindle prices, like setting to zero/free. But Amazon UK has lowered the Kindle price as well for its own reasons.

    Plus, it's not discounted on the USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, etc.) in such a manner. My guess would be it's somewhere in there algorithm that such a sale might mean additional sales at a profit elsewhere...or with Soul Forge for example, which is not discounted in print, or ebook.

    An FYI:

    Flank Hawk is now available as a Free ebook. My publisher indicated it'd be that way through Thursday. Also, get the ebook for free and via Audible, get the audiobook for $1.99.

    Pretty good deal. Here's a link to my blog with direct links and more: Link: Flank Hawk: Ebook for Free, Audiobook for $1.99

    I was at ConCarolinas 2105 when the promotional effort kicked off--but I did get a few minutes to check in and got a screen shot (see blog link above) where Flank Hawk was #90 overall on Amazon (free rankings) and #1 in Historical and #2 in Epic, although my publisher said it was also #1 in Sword and Sorcery.

    Thanks, BWFoster78!

    Russ, sorry it wasn't free in Canada. Don't know why. :(
    I look forward to your thoughts on Flank Hawk!

    Hey Folks,

    Flank Hawk is currently discounted to Free as an ebook (Amazon US, Kobo, Smashwords, iTunes, B&N and more). If you don't have a copy, now would be a great time to get yours!

    Also, if you're an Audible member, if you get the Kindle version, you can get the audiobook version for a steep discount. Link: Flank Hawk on Audible
