As of now, it stands at #25!
Many of you flooded Amazon with orders of the book and helped land me on the top 25 Bestselling War Fiction charts. It may be a small list (only a few thousand compared to a few million), but we certainly did.
And I do mean we.
I could not have done it. You, the community at large, rallied around me and helped get this on the charts. Now we just have to keep it there! The best thing to do is leave a review of the book on the Amazon site. Once you do, it will help the book gain credibility among readers and up the ranking.
But before you continue enjoying the novel, let me sincerely thank you – each and every one of you – for helping me get this off the ground. It takes a community to tell a story; this is your story as much as it is mine. The heroes out there – honored or nameless – helped write this story. I can only take an itsy-bitsy amount of credit for it.
The work is not over for The Coward. Promotions and signings will continue. I’ll be working on the next steps of the process as you read this. In the mean time, click here and get the book if you haven’t already, then leave a review. If you do it by Friday, May 16th, you’ll be entered in to win a $50 Amazon gift card. Then tell your friends. You can even gift the book or eBook to a friend.
And most importantly – enjoy!
Nothing brings me more joy as a writer than to let readers and listeners simply enjoy. So for now, that is what I shall do. Blessings to you all, and thank you for your support.
My book, The Coward, goes on sale tomorrow for $1! Go and download the book tomorrow, tell your friends to download the book, and if you leave even a partial review by Friday, you’re entered for a chance to win $50 Amazon card. The winner will be announced as a comment on Amazon and on here on Friday at noon. So go – check it out! At worst, you’re out a buck and entered in for a chance to win $50. What are you waiting for? 🙂
It’s been some time…
Too long really.
And I haven’t forgotten about my blog, I promise! Far be it from me to make this post a “Dear Diary…” entry, but I do want to share with all my readers what has been going on (and why you haven’t read anything in a while). I’ve been furiously putting my fingers to the keyboard and have been coming up with some new stuff (and some old stuff). Here’s some stuff to look for:
- A finished version of the play Baggage, written by fellow writer Gary Head and myself. We had a great debut in Lubbock and received good feedback from the West Texas Christian Theatre Festival in Brownwood. We hope to make some edits and have a finished version later this year for publication and production.
- The Coward in stores! I promised to get it out there and I will come through. I have another book signing scheduled in Roswell. Join us at the Pecos Flavors Winery in Roswell, NM, May 10th at 6:30p! It’s a great venue and will be a lot of fun.
- I started writing a musical with the very talented Dr. Byron Rogers, professor of Chemistry (yes, chemistry) at LCU. Byron is receiving his Master’s in Music Comp. Together, we are writing a full-length musical on King Solomon from the Bible with lots of sexy Queen of Sheba music. More info to come, I’m sure.
- Oh yeah, I’m in grad school… I’ll probably be posting some thoughts from my program on here at some point.
And that’s just a few.
ALSO, Tues, May 13, my ebook version of The Coward will be on sale on Amazon.com for only $1! That’s right, one day only. AND, if you leave a review by that Friday, you’ll be entered in for a chance to win an Amazon.com giftcard for $50. So, buy the book, leave a review (even a partial one counts!), and possibly win $50.
More stuff to come, peace,
