Mind & Body is being rewritten
For the last several months I have slowly been re-writing the story from top-to-bottom. There will be a few plot changes, but nothing gigantic. The current version is still available to download for free, and I don't discourage you from reading it, I just (in all my vanity) want you to be aware that what you'll be reading isn't what I consider a final product.
It will probably still be a number of months before I finish, so I don't recommend waiting. Go ahead, read the current version, just try to ignore the grammar problems and plot holes.
Why Offer My Book For Free?
A few reasons.
For one, so I won't be a hypocrite. I read a lot of books, and from time to time if I'm not sure about a certain book or if I can't find it in print, I'll try to find an ebook version of it to download... which is almost always illegal. To not offer readers of my book the same luxury I'd like of every other book would be pretty crummy of me.
Also, it can't hurt me. A digital copy of my book costs me nothing. If someone who doesn't read my book and someone who reads my book for free have the same financial impact on me, why shouldn't I motivate members of the former group to join the latter? Books sell by word-of-mouth, and the more people reading my stuff, the better.

Download For Not-So-Free
Below this section you will find free ebook downloads that will work in most ebook readers. However, I do offer a few ways to buy ebooks through proprietary ebook stores.
I offer these for two reasons: first, some people might just prefer to use these ebook stores because they're easy; second, some people might just be crazy and want to contribute a few bucks to me for being awesome.
You can purchase the ebook from the following stores:
