Following up on My Official Greeting (or, Did You Get Your Freebies from Me?)

Hi Reader Friend,

How’s everything? See any good movies lately? Are there any movies worth seeing? The last one I saw in the theaters was Spider-Man: Far From Home. Shocking, right? I used to go to the movies all the time when I was in college. Now I’m lucky to even catch one on Blu-ray. Those were the days, weren’t they? Oh well. Pandemic life.

So, today’s message is simple. I’m sending a quick follow-up to make sure you had a chance to download the e-books I offered you back when I issued my official hello (they were at the bottom of the first email I sent you—hopefully you got that one). They came with a free coupon code, so hopefully you also had a chance to activate it. If for any reason you missed it (or that first email), let me know, and I can generate new codes for you.

To remind you, they were:

The Computer Nerd

Free Coupon Code: NR97R (good until January 31, 2021)


A Modern-day Fantasy, Year One: Cannonball City

Free Coupon Code: NR97R (good until January 31, 2021)

With a bonus 50% off discount for the sequel.

Discount Coupon Code: NC84Z (good until March 31, 2021)

Again, if you got the message too late, or if some reason my email provider failed to provide, I can generate new coupon codes for you. Just respond to this email, and I’ll get new ones to you as soon as possible.

Also, if you have gotten your copies, were you able to get them working? If not, I wanted to recommend the Kindle App for your phone or PC, since that’s the best app for viewing the files, in my opinion. It’s the one I use the most, at least. You should be able to Google “Kindle App” for the right links if you don’t have the program. I know the PC is quick to identify the correct file (.MOBI) to the Kindle for PC app. The phone, on the other hand, is a little trickier. Typically, the file will go to your “downloads” folder, and you’ll have to activate it from there. Unless you get a book directly from Amazon, the native program may not recognize the file as part of the library. So, it’s a good idea to access it directly from your “downloads” folder.

I hope that helps if you’ve had any trouble getting it to work. And if everything is working fine, I hope you’ve been enjoying the books.

Let me know what you think of them.

Remember that The Computer Nerd will be getting a “Rebooted Edition” update soon, and I’ll be offering you a free copy once it’s available as a thank you for joining my newsletter early. So, keep an eye on your inbox for that announcement. And, just in case the messaging trolls get their greasy mitts on my emails before they get to you, check your junk folder to see if any of them have been intercepted and cast aside. Then punch out those trolls by marking the emails as “not junk.”

That’s it for now. Until next time…
