Ever wondered what happened to Thor before he met Emily? Well today is your lucky day: Thor’s Tale is a short story (about 10,000 words) that fills in the events to your favorite Malamute’s appearance in Extinction Point.

As the story is free I’ve hosted it myself, so getting your hands on it is a little bit more involved than when you buy a book from Amazon. Don’t panic, though. It’s actually pretty simple.

Here’s what you will need to do to read Thor’s Tale on your Kindle:

 

1) First download the .mobi file of Thor’s Tale by clicking the download link below (make sure you make a note of where you downloaded the file):

DOWNLOAD THOR’S TALE

 

 

2) Check to make sure the email you will be using to send the book is on your approved list

a) click the following link to be taken to your Amazon account https://www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle

(If you don’t trust my link, just go to Amazon, mouse over Your Account at the top of the screen, and click on Manage Your Account and Devices. )

b) Select the SETTINGS tab on the right, and then scroll down to PERSONAL DOCUMENT SETTINGS

c)Under the APPROVED PERSONAL DOCUMENT LIST, make sure your email address is listed (make sure it’s the same as the email you will be sending Thor’s Tale from). If it’s not listed, then select ADD A NEW APPROVED EMAIL ADDRESS

d) Enter the email address you’d like to add and click ADD ADDRESS

 

3) Now simply email Thor’s Tale to your email address. There’s no need to put anything in the body of the email, just make sure that the Thor’s Tale file is attached. Once the email is gone, refresh your Kindle and you should see Thor’s Tale in your list of books

 

4) Enjoy

 

ALTERNATIVE METHOD FOR THOSE HAVING PROBLEMS EMAILING IT TO THEMSELVES

 

1) First download the .mobi file of Thor’s Tale by clicking the download link below (make sure you make a note of where you downloaded the file):

DOWNLOAD THOR’S TALE

 

Follow the instructions below:

  1. Connect your device to your computer with the USB cable. Your device will appear in the same location on your computer that external USB drives appear.
    • Windows: Your device will appear in the Computer or My Computer folder.
    • Mac: Your device will appear on the desktop.
  2. Open the device folder, and then open the Documents or Internal Documents folder.
  3. Locate the downloaded file on your computer, and then drag and drop the compatible file into the appropriate folder. Depending on your device type, the folder names may vary.
    • For example, on Kindle Paperwhite, move books to the Documents folder. On Kindle Fire tablets, move books to the Books folder.
  4. Safely disconnect your device from your computer once the transfer is complete.

    A great way to fill in a small, missing part of the story. I always wondered how Thor`s journey might have started..now we know. How lucky for Emily that Father left the door open! A fun read. Thanks for sharing !

    I had to put ‘convert’ in the subject line before sending or it just wouldn’t arrive on my Kindle. Hope that helps anyone else having problems. Looking forward to reading it!

      Thanks for sharing that tip, Reloth. It almost seems as though Amazon has gone out of its way to make it as difficult as possible to load anything that is not bought through the store. I’ll pass on the tip.
