Hello boyos and happy Friday!
What’s this about sales? Well, I’ve got an accurate Eden sales count thru the end of Feb 2011. And, yes, we are over 1,000. Over 1,100 to be a tad more precise. So, yeah — things are holding steady on that front and I’m quite pleased with where we’re at after 5 months.
Eden was recently reviewed, favorably on BookBookie where the reviewer closed with: “It’s intriguing and a good story.”
Eden was also reviewed in a school newspaper. Emily Stone had these fine words to share: “Eden is a thrilling read, with the combination of biblical mystery and adventure…”
What are you doing, Matt? Hanging around high schools peddling your cheap crap? Umm… no, of course not! That would be creepy…
Actually, in all seriousness, a good friend of mine is a teacher and he mentioned Eden to one of his classes. I was surprised and honored to be reviewed in their school newspaper. Again, just because the audience is small doesn’t make it any less meaningful to me as a writer. So, thanks Emily Stone and RHAM High School! You guys rock!
I am close to cornering an artist for the graphic novel version of Eden… very close. If all goes according to plan, both Babylon and the GN version of Eden will be done in time for X-Mas 2011. Of course, I hope to have Babylon done/available much much sooner.
The Antaran Legacy is now available on the iBookstore. Lulu seemed to crap all over itself for a few weeks, so I am likely dumping them for my iBooks versions. More on this topic Tuesday. But, for now, all you need to know is the iBooks version is all set. Search for me or “Antaran” and it’s easy to find. Remember, the ebook price everywhere is $3.99 – less than a coffee at Starbucks! What are you waiting for? Tell your friends, leave me 5-star reviews – get out there and mobilize people! 🙂
My #1.5 (Mr. Boucher) and I may decide to co-write a novel based upon my first published story. We have some details to iron out, but it may become a reality. Stay tuned for more details there.
