Go out into the webiverse and spread the word! I do not send you out on this great task unarmed, however. Here are a selection of mighty memetic weapons with quotes from my two novels to aid you in your quest. Behold their majesty and choose your rhetorical blades!

Fly, my pretties, spread widely and infect as many minds as possible with these noble thoughts, Muahahaha!

*ahem*

Why yes, I was sleep-deprived while writing this, why do you ask?

*EDIT* I’ve replaced one of my paltry efforts with a much more awesome version produced by Matt Margolis.

 

Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance Book Bomb!

CLFA_BookBomb_graphic

The Conservative Libertarian Fiction Alliance is running a book bomb for twenty books today and tomorrow (18th and 19th Jul7 2016). Beyond the Mist is one, and two other members of the Superversive Literary movement also feature. A book bomb works by lots of people going on amazon and buying the same book on the same day, which boost’s the book’s rankings in amazon’s algorithms and makes it more visible to potential new readers. The author also gets paid for his work, as it should be. If you already have one of these books, please leave a review on Amazon (even if you don’t have much to say or someone else has already said similar things), as that also helps to boost that book’s visibility in amazon’s recommendations algorithm. If you’ve already done both of those, please tell your friends about this event in any way you can, on your blog, on twitter or facebook or any online community you are part of. (Please do that even if you haven’t bought it yet, spread the word as widely as possible!)

Let’s give these authors a boost! Click on the book picture to read more and buy:

Meeting up with the Mountain Who Writes!

bookswapI had the privilege of meeting up with Larry Correia on the last stop of his European book signing tour. He seemed pretty excited to receive a signed copy of Beyond the Mist from me, as I got him to sign my copy of his excellent fantasy novel Son of the Black Sword (John C. Wright’s foreword in my book was a big selling point for him).

He was already well aware of Sci Phi Journal and SuperversiveSF.com, and I took a few messages from the rest of the SuperversiveSF crew, so he was happy to see me and I had a nice chat with him and his good lady about Prague, their experiences on their tour, family life, writing and a little about this year’s Sad Puppies campaign. It was a fun time and I look forward to hearing what Larry thinks of my little book, since many of us know how much weight a recommendation from him can carry.

In other news, The 2016 Journal of the Society of Classical Poets came out this week, featuring one of my poems.

They will also be posting a review of my latest poetry book Selected Verse – Heroes and Wonders in mid-May, so I look forward to reading what they think of that collection.

Promotion After Action Report and Where We Go From Here

How the Promotion Went

Well, the threeway kindle countdown deal is now over, and thanks to the signal boost from scifiwright, castalia house and elsewhere, the results were very encouraging, far better than any previous sale I’ve run.

Records Broken.

The first two days of the deal began much like any other, but once the plug from scifiwright came, things got interesting. Continue reading

High Reviewer Praise for Beyond the Mist!

Jeffro Johnson over at the Castalia House blog has posted a glowing review of Beyond the Mist that almost makes me blush. This little quip I think sums it up:

Going by the blurbs, I was expecting sort of a science fiction version of Pilgrim’s Progress. Really, this is way better than that would have been.

Read the full review here.

If you haven’t already got yourself a copy, you can still grab one for 99 cents for another 2 1/2 days (click on the image below to visit the relevant amazon page)

 

Beyond the Mist

Selected Verse – Faith and Family currently No.1 in Family Poetry on Amazon!

Thanks to the awesome influx of people visiting here from scifiwright and elsewhere (obliterating my daily traffic records) and buying up my books on sale, Selected Verse: Faith and Family has now reached the No. 1 spot for Family-themed poetry, and no. 9 in Religious and Inspirational Poetry ebooks at Amazon. I know this probably won’t last long, given how quickly these rankings can change, but I thought this moment worthy of recording for posterity. Family poetry is a surprisingly small category, let’s see if we can climb any higher in the bigger categories.

selectedverseno1Speaking of much larger categories, Beyond the Mist is now no.8 in metaphysical genre fiction, highly respectable  positions in major categories and approaching the overall top 7,000 paid books in the kindle store:BtMrankno8

And Nobility Among Us briefly popped into the top 30 Alternative history ebooks:NAUpeakrank

The First Shipment of Beyond the Mist Paperbacks Has Arrived

BtM_paperbackpromo

This will mostly be of interest to readers in the Czech Republic, but my first shipment of author copies of Beyond the Mist arrived yesterday, so those who wish to save on postage (or request a signed copy) can now order direct from the author for 200 Czech Crowns (plus postage of 56 CZK for cash on delivery within the Czech Republic, 183 CZK for Europe and 225 CZK for outside Europe). I also have a limited stock of paperbacks of Selected Verse: Faith and Family and Nobility Among Us, but bear in mind that Nobility Among Us is considerably heavier than the other two books, so will involve higher postage costs. Please use the contact form below to arrange this.
