As they just went up, Amazon hasn’t combined them under my author account yet. In five days, they should both show up on the links. Amazon will deliver your ebook to your e-reader on Feb. 14, and ship the print edition beginning on the 14th.
Just FYI, Barnes & Noble have the print edition on special sale price. And, they show all three print books under my author link.
If you buy a print copy on Amazon, you can get the ebook edition for free.
I’m participating in a promotion with a number of other authors in a Christian Fiction Summer Sale. I put Sudden Mission in and it will be available for $0.99 for the next week in all the outlets.
Christian Fiction Summer Sale
Some of the authors are former Vox Dei and have either found new publishers or are self-publishing now. This promotion should help us all build some sales over the next week.
Some of the books are only on sale on Amazon. Sudden Mission is on sale on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBook, and Kobo. The 14 titles cover many different topics, but all have strong, Christian-based stories. If you already have Sudden Mission, pass this on to friends and family who are interested. Check out the other books, too. I bet you’ll find some great summer reads there at a great price.
Don’t forget to check out my reading of Nasty Leftovers at Auntie’s Bookstore in downtown Spokane on Sept. 15, and the Montana Book Festival in Missoula, MT, Sept. 21-25. See the Events page for details.
I recently took a short story, Mars in the Middle, out of the trunk and rewrote it. I put the story in first person, punched up the narrative and dialog , fixed the ending, and submitted it to an interesting market. We’ll see what happens.
We arrived in Twin Falls, Idaho, on a beautiful Saturday morning and immediately went down to take a look at Shoshone Falls. A lot of folks were heading down there and–surprise, surprise–they needed $3 per car for entrance. Good thing we had a little cash handy.
The falls were everything promised and it was wife Connie’s first time there. Then we went to the Barnes & Noble in town and started to set up. Deby Johnson, the person who coordinated this even, had twelve copies each of Sudden Mission and Nasty Leftovers. At noon I started to get nervous, wondering if we would even put a dent in the bookstore’s inventory of my books. Connie got me a venti non-fat mocha and we settled in to watch people come and go.
I talked to a few folks, said “Hi” to people who looked our way, but things were quiet at first. Some people came by and mentioned an article in the local newspaper and looked over the books.
Then things started to pick up. My dad arrived with a friend and a nephew. My brother showed up. Folks I hadn’t seen since I was very young walked in. Activity around our table increased. Folks requested signing, shared memories, talked, hugged, shook hands–and then it was 4 pm.
Two copies of Nasty Leftovers were still on the table. Sudden Mission was sold out. Deby asked me to sign the last two copies of Nasty Leftovers and she would put an “autographed” sticker on them. Then we packed up our display. The Twin Falls Barnes & Noble, and Deby Johnson, were gracious hosts and we had a lot of fun there.
Connie and I checked into the hotel down the street, then went down to a conference room where Dad set up a reception. The room was packed and I set up the tabletop displays again, signed and sold a number of copies of each book. We ate, then I talked about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), the journey to publication, answered questions, and read a little of Sudden Mission.
It’s all kind of a blur, now. Connie and I stumbled into our room exhausted about 8 or 9 pm (my watch said 9, but we were in Mountain Time).
I’m blessed and humbled at the turnout, the great people, friends, and family who came to support me. Thanks to Deby and the Twin Falls B&N, and Dad for setting this up.
