    After years of procrastination, a little over a year ago I began documenting a motorcycle adventure that happened over 15 years ago. 3 of my best friends and I went off for a weekend of camping and riding in the Appalachian mountains and got stranded in a freak snowstorm. We were soaked, frozen, and the trip switched from fun to deadly in the blink of an eye. I wrote the story and peppered it with pictures and more than a few entertaining motorcycle stories from our college years.

    I have 5 coupons for free copies of the ebook. If anyone would like to read the book and would be willing to post a review on Amazon and Smashwords if you enjoy the book (the review can be identical), I would appreciate it. Send me a PM and I'll send you the link for the coupon.

    I also have a 50% coupon that is good until Feb 13 on Smashwords and a 20% coupon for ADVr's that is permanent.

    You can read the first 10 chapters for free at both of the sites below.

    Amazon: Click the link to the left to go to the Amazon site for my book if you own a Kindle or your device has a Kindle reader (Kindle has readers for lots of devices including computers).

    Smashwords: Click the link to the left to download a copy that can be used on different ereaders (nook, Sony ereader, Apple iBooks, and even Kindle). This is also the only site you can use the coupons.

    50% ADVrider Smashwords Coupon - AA93Y - good through Feb 13, 2012
    20% ADVrider Smashwords Coupon - WS75D

    All of the proceeds from the book goes towards other motorcycling adventures including my recent solo of the Baja 1000 (documented on ADVrider)

    Go to my website at www.fishwrites.com to see samples of some of the other articles and stories I've published.

    Thanks and stay warm.

    Thanks to everyone who sent me a PM about the book. I'm all out of free coupons now, but the 50% code still works.

    Marc - thanks for taking the time to read the book. I appreciate your review.

    Bump for a great book.

    Pilo,
    I might be a little biased, but I love the book. I rarely read, and even more uncommon is reading a book in just a couple sittings, but this one kept me reading. This is also the first time I have read an ebook other than the Bible. It worked great on my old pocket dell using mobipocket reader (free download).

    Thank you for writing our great story,
    NX

    The speed and intensity of the storm was amazing. And I can't believe the woman wouldn't let you in her house to warm up after you crawled up to her door covered in ice....

    read it as an ebook (ibooks) on an ipad, and the photos looked good too...

    Thanks for the kind words. If anyone would be interested in posting a review on Amazon, that is always helpful.

    Danman - I think I was less frustrated by it at the time likely because I wasn't really thinking too clearly. Maybe if when I collapsed in the front yard if I didn't get back up she might have helped me...maybe.

    My book has also been submitted for the Nook, Apple store and Sony ereader and should be available within 2 weeks at those sites.

    Thanks again.

    Just letting everyone know that a print version of the book is now available on Amazon. The ADV discount still works for the ebook.

    The book also has a snazzy new cover.
