The Funk Machine, a novel

  1. Hey all,

    In observance of the 30th anniversary of James Jamerson's passing, I just launched a blog about my historical fiction novel based on his legendary instrument:


    I am offering the book as a download via the site. Please read it, and if you feel it was enjoyable, consider making a monetary gift via the PayPal link on the page. In keeping with the ideals of the gift economy, you set whatever amount you deem worthy. Or, not. It is entirely up to you.

    Best regards,

    Thanks for posting this Patrick! I just downloaded the PDF to my iPad's Kindle app and will check it out.

    A new genre: "Bass Fiction"!
  3. You are welcome! Let me know how it works on the app, I am wrestling with trying to output the book in different formats and am having some headaches thus far ...

    Works fine. I simply emailed the PDF to my Kindle account. The app automatically imported the ebook. It is perfectly formatted. You swipe each page right to left to advance. Tap the page and a row of pages appears on the bottom of the screen for rapid scrolling through pages. I can't stand reading physical books anymore!
