Book Two of Adrian's Undead Diary; Alone No More is about to hit on Amazon.
In fact, they just listed the Kindle version. PLEASE DON'T BUY IT YET. Pretty please.
Amazon always seems to get the Kindle listings going faster than the paperback versions which is cool, except that it sort of hurts doing some damage on the bestseller rankings.
If we can coordinate all of our Alone No More purchases into a 24 hour period, AUD book two could hit the top 100 or better, on all of Amazon. Hell, making the top 500 on Amazon is amazing. We narrowly missed making the top 500 with Dark Recollections, and I blame the Kindle early release.
So PLEASE wait to purchase your Kindle copy until the paperback releases, which should be on Monday. *Might* be Sunday, but they're telling me Monday. If we can all do our thing in a coordinated fashion....
The Sky's the limit.
Now if you NEED to go look at the Amazon listing, and you still want to help like a boss, take a minute and write a review. Books with lots of reviews sort higher, and are almost always going to sell better. I shit you not when I say every review makes me incredibly happy, and folks, I read them all.
I also realize many of you are going to be all like, "Screw you Chris, I want to read the damn book, and I'm not waiting."
That's okay too. Every book sold makes me smile, and helps me get a little closer to quitting my day job and doing this whole 'writer thing' as a real job. Won't that be nice.
First off, I'll be at Gibson's Bookstore in Concord NH tonight at 6:30 doing a signing for some fans. If you can make it, I'd be more than happy to sign any of your books, and shoot the shit with you. I'm pretty fun to hang out with. Gibson's currently stocks Dark Recollections and The Wrath of the Orphans, so if you can pick up a copy of one or the other, they would appreciate it, as would I. I will have an advanced copy of Alone No More on hand to show folks as well, which is kind of exciting.
Secondly, Alone No more drops on Amazon on Monday November 11th, in celebration of Veteran's Day. A HUGE portion of my readers come from the military, and when I saw that we could make a hard push to get book two released on this day, we said fuck it, and put our nose to the grindstone to get it done. I know it isn't much of a gesture, but I want all of you men and women who have served to know that there are people out there who are thinking of you, and want the best for you. I'd love to see the support on Book two that you all showed me on book one. Dark Recollections nearly cracked the top 700 of all books on Amazon day two, which was an incredible achievement for a no talent hack like myself. I thank you all profusely.
Thirdly, also in celebration for Veteran's Day, I've decided to put The Wrath of the Orphans on sale on the Kindle for a week for just .99 cents. If you haven't read Elmoryn, this is a super cheap way to start, and also puts a few pennies into my pocket, which is win win all around. I just hope you enjoy it half so much as AUD.
Please spread the word about Alone No More, the Wrath sale, and Veterans all over the world. They're all worth talking about.
