Kobo and Nook can follow redirect links?
20 April 2015 08:48 (GMT)I am planning on including redirect links in my back matter for my next release of all my books.
These will go to tiny.cc, and then to the specific ebookstore where the original book was downloaded.
I know people side load books they buy in one store on another device, but that's the minority of all readers.
So, on the Kobo, the link to my next book will go to the Kobo store, on the Nook, it will go to the Nook store.
What I am trying to determine is if all of the eReaders on both platforms can follow redirected links.
If you are willing to help answer the question, please side load the linked one page ePub and let me know if the link redirects you successfully.

Regularly $4.99, now only $1.99, but for a limited time only! Only for Kobo readers!
In this critically acclaimed Epic Fantasy, a young boy and girl are thrown into a battle that will change their destiny forever. Elves, dwarves, dragons, wizards, humans and more are bound together in conflict, love, paranoia, and power struggles with the world in the balance.
The Watchers long ago abandoned their sworn duty to monitor and suppress the powers of Khollaran, an evil wizard, locked away in a distant prison at the end of the First Age. As his power grows, an ancient and dire prophecy appears to be coming true.
The Guardians take actions to try to stop the Dark Wizard, putting young Peter and Alexandra in the middle of the greatest conflict since the Breaking of the World.
As The Children of the Prophecy, the twins will be tasked with a near impossible quest to recover the pieces of the fabled Triadine and unite the races in a battle to destroy the growing evil, without destroying the world in the process.

In 1830, President Andrew Jackson signed the Indian Removal Act into law authorizing the removal of southern tribes to Indian Territory in the west. In 1838, the Trail of Tears occur when the remaining people are forcibly removed and marched a thousand plus miles on foot.

The novel follows his adventures as he travels west and gets involved in all sorts of historical events from the 1840's to 1850's.
Astray in Couper, Matty Cruz Adventure Book One
22 March 2015 17:22 (GMT)Astray in Couper, book one in the Matty Cruz Adventure Series is FREE on both Kobo and B&N sites.
When the economic downturn ends Matty Cruz’s corporate career, she impulsively moves to Couper, Washington, a tree-filled city nestled on the banks of the Columbia River. Unbeknownst to her, the charming town has one of the highest violent-crime rates in the Pacific Northwest.
A depressed and broke Matty entertains herself by reading news stories detailing the mayhem that occurred the night before in her neighborhood, until one of those stories ends up on her doorstep in the form of a soot-covered dog. Matty soon realizes that the poor creature must have belonged to the recently deceased Agnes Whitshaw, an impoverished, old woman who lived nearby and died in a house fire.
Matty reluctantly abandons her reclusive ways as she learns to take care of her furry houseguest, while at the same time she tries to find “Poochy” a forever home. Along the way, she interacts with the colorful Couperites who give her advice on dog ownership and bits of information concerning Agnes that make Matty wonder whether the fire that killed the fierce, old woman was set on purpose.
Matty pieces together the truth, but not before she attracts the attention of the murderers, and they come after her and the terrier. Surrounded by people quite different than those in her formerly middle-class existence, Matty must find a way to save herself—and Poochy—from Couper’s dark side.
