Awesome Captain...

Wow, can't believe I missed this thread. Kudos to you. I know more than one gunslinger that aspires to writing a novel, and you have made us envious today.

Writing a novel is extremely difficult, getting it published is even harder. Congrats! Let's hope it spawns a movie deal!

Thanks. Writing is great. Publishing is on Kindle, which is a god send. The hard part is producing a really good product, and then marketing.

Check out the samples on amazon, see what you think.

Thanks for the support, really appreciated.

The free book promo outcome

As many of you know The 5th Amulet went free from 2-4 November (midnight pacific time estimated)

The result over the weekend was surprising.

In the UK Action and adventure chart I ended up in the #2 spot. I missed the #1 spot as Stephen Leather had a free promotion (and he has been around a while)

In the UK Thriller chart #15

In the US Action and adventure chart I got to #20

If you check out the book, then LIKE what you see if there is a button, I would really appreciate it.

I would once again like to thank McMurphy and all of GS for the help and courtesy of allowing me to promote the book here.

I encourage any other authors that have books in progress to go for it. You never know.

Purchased it and sent it to my kindle tonight. I will read it at work over the next couple days and let you know what I think. I don't read much, except manuals and how-to books. Looking forward to something new and supporting a fellow GS. Congratulations on the book.

Many congratulations on the book. I do like the sound of it. Already downloaded to my kindle and passed the link to a couple of friends who also downloaded. I'll get back to you with feedback once i get a chance to read it.
Well done on getting such high numbers in the charts.
A new career beckons..... :D
