In what seems to be the coup de grace for my self-publishing journey thus far, the ebook versions of The White Lion Chronicles are here.

Well, almost.

I wasn’t going to post about them until the largest performing of the formats – the Kindle editions (which ironically enough take the most time for Amazon to process to a publishable state) – were ready. But the expected 24-48-hour estimated timeframe was cut down to only a few hours last night, and poof! they’re ready.

The Smashwords versions are also ready to go (which eventually trickles down to the Apple iBooks versions).

The ones I’m still waiting on are the Barnes & Noble Nook versions. I will be sure to post an update as soon as B&N is done processing the conversions; I expect them to be ready later today. UPDATE: Nook versions are live! See below.

A huge thanks goes to the very helpful, ever insightful, and beyond reasonable services of Glendon and Tabatha Haddix at Streetlight Graphics.

I priced them all at just $2.99 in the hopes that as many people as possible will download and enjoy the novels that have meant so much to me and my family as well as thousands of readers over the past six years.

So please grab them for your favorite e-reader and share the news with your reading friends. Who knows, maybe you’ll even inspire a “non-reader” like I was to discover the breathtaking world of reading. ch:

    No one’s ever asked me to sign the front if their e-reader with a Sharpie before, but for you, anything.

I was JUST looking in kindle las night to see if they were available! Very cool!

David Seaman · 25 Feb ’12 at 1:50 am

Ha! Now I’ll be able to have that book burning I’ve been threatening you with! 😉

Fantastic Christopher! E-publishing IS the future. Tolle lege!

Gail Lambert · 25 Feb ’12 at 9:24 am

Thank you for making these so affordable Chris. I just ordered all three and can’t wait to start reading. Many blessings you and your tribe.

    Christopher Hopper · 25 Feb ’12 at 9:25 am

    Thanks Gail! That was my hope; I’m thrilled you’re able to get them. Blessings!

Beth · 25 Feb ’12 at 10:17 am

So exciting!! I will be downloading all 3 within the next 2 weeks (fitting them into my budget). Still need the hard copies for my library though. Praying for a successful 1st day of ebook sales! And praying those who read the books will be inspired & challenged.

    Christopher Hopper · 25 Feb ’12 at 10:30 am

    Thanks Beth! Yeah – I’m very stoked for the wide distribution channels this reaches. Already had a testimony come in from one of the members of The Underground in West Africa (family just moved there as missionaries).

Awesome, super cool news!
Grats bro!

    Christopher Hopper · 25 Feb ’12 at 4:17 pm

    Thanks bud!

    Can’t wait to have Ghost up there!

Sarah · 25 Feb ’12 at 5:26 pm

So glad these are available! I do not have an e-reader but would like to download them to read on my computer. Which version do you recommend?

    Christopher Hopper · 25 Feb ’12 at 6:05 pm

    I know that Smashwords offers a PDF conversion. I’m not exactly sure how to download it, but if it’snot evident from the link to the respective page, please let me know and I’ll troubleshoot it for you. Thanks Sarah!

    Sarah · 25 Feb ’12 at 6:31 pm

    Smashwords offers the PDF version right on their choices and it works beautifully! I can’t wait to start reading Athera’s Dawn! Thank You so much!

Elizabeth Summo · 25 Feb ’12 at 8:15 pm

that is awesome!!! Can you let me know how i can get hard copies of them though? i guess I just love holding a book in my hands even though it takes up a lot of space. Would love to purchase from you just need to know how much you have the hard copies priced at and how to get the money to you!!!

    Christopher Hopper · 25 Feb ’12 at 8:54 pm

    Hi Elizabeth. Totally understand.

    Yep, print versions of all 3 books (and very nice editions I might add) can be purchased through the links on my Novels page here:

Just read the answer to my question above! Want the hard copies. Dont have a Nook or other reading device and my eyes get tired quickly from being online. I’m going to get them for my Grandkids. It will be a couple of years before they can read them or understand them being read to them but hey, they’ll grow up possibly loving them as your family does and I will become famously cool because I can say that I know the author!! (I know, always looking for the edge!) Congratulations Chris! And thank you!

    Christopher Hopper · 26 Feb ’12 at 5:27 am

    Ha ha – no apologies needed! That edge is everything! 🙂 You’ll be remembered for generations to come (or at least until the juice box you gave them runs out). 😉
