Sadly the 5-day free book offer for Crooked Step has now expired…
But in those 5 days, we have achieved:
- 111,718 possible views on the fb campaign (thank you!)
- 271 downloads (thank you! thank you!)
- Amazon ranking #23 in YA urban fantasy at its peak (as small a category as that may be)
We have now entered the payment-required period, but Amazon Prime members can still borrow the book for free. The paperback version will also be available within the next month, and you’ll be able to admire the beautiful Adobe Garamond and download the Kindle version for free with the purchase of the paper copy from Amazon. Free, free, free.
Also, Mnemosyne 01, Tenth Generation, a supporting short story set in the Crooked World, will be available for download within the next week, and will be permanently free.
Here’s a preview of the cover:
Yeah… It’s a bit more futuristic and comic-inspired, and you’ll be introduced to Wildfire.
Mnemosyne 02 onwards (until we run out of numbers) will follow, and you’ll have the chance to meet Helen’s father properly next.
Meanwhile… Reviews… I want them. I need them. So much that I’ve put the word in bold.
I know writing is a pain, so here are some templates for you to use.
Crooked Step is an amazing book. Really, it’s been ages since I’ve read a book that fully immersed me in the world it’s created. All the characters are well-written and fun – I can’t choose a favourite, but maybe Lou? Please publish the next one soon! (Read the first letter of the 4 previous sentences for how I really feel about the book.)
I am the author’s friend, and the author tried to bribe me with chocolate in return for a good review. As Gambit once said, ‘I’m just an honest man living in a dishonest world.‘ I’m giving this one star.
It was OK.
Honestly though, please spare me as many stars as you can manage without making your conscience cry.
Thank you, and special thanks to Salem for providing the gifs that make this post interesting.
