Hey everyone. I am having a 99 cent sale on the kindle version of The Watchmage of Old New York. If you like my writing and are intrigued by what I can do with fiction, now is the perfect time to pick it up. Ebooks are the new stocking stuffer. Yes, I know that it doesn’t actually go in a stocking, but the gift of reading, no matter the format, is a gift that you never lose.
Also, I need to pay the rent 😛
If you’re looking for something a bit more personal. I am happy to sell custom signed paperbacks as well. Just shoot me a message on my contact page. I only have a few left before I need to reorder. I’ll also throw in one of the anthologies that my short stories are in (if I have enough).
If you are a book reviewer and are looking for a historical fantasy during a time period that has rarely been touched, you can contact me for an ARC copy. I’m always looking for more reviews, as they are the best way to expand exposure and let Amazon know that you exist.
I’m done with my plug. Carry on and have a great day! Be brilliant!
Tomorrow is Indie Authors’ Day, and I am giving a presentation and workshop at a library upstate. To celebrate, I reduced the price of The Watchmage of Old New York to 99 cents! That’s 75% percent off! This is only for a few days, so if you like Historical Fantasy with complex characters, historical accuracy combined with a fantasy world woven into it, and a heavy dose of whimsy. You want this book.
Also, if you like my blog and want to support me, 99 cents is a good way to do so.
And if you’ve read it, please leave a review and tell your friends about it. Writers survive on your support alone.
It is 1855, and Nathaniel Hood walks between two worlds.
As the Watchmage of New York City, Nathaniel is charged with protecting, regulating, and administering justice to the myriad supernatural beings immigrating to the city. When his policeman son, Jonas, is brutally beaten by Veil Dwellers—creatures born of human legends and dreams—while investigating a kidnapping that has the city in an uproar, Nathaniel breaks his vow not to interfere with human society and joins the search.
While searching for the kidnapped infant heir amidst the broken lives of the supernatural on the Bowery, father and son discover the heir’s terrible secret born in ancient magic, lust, and blood. The Watchmage of Old New York is an expansion of the award-winning and highly popular serial from JukepopSerials.com. It’s a blend of fantasy, history, humor, and mystery, wrapped in a well-detailed and vivid mid-19th century New York.
There’s never a bad time for a book. Lately I’ve been reading books through the Kindle app on my phone. I’m never without a good read, and you shouldn’t be either.
Just a reminder: today is the LAST DAY to get The Watchmage of Old New York e-book for 99 cents. Yes! 99 cents! 99 pennies! A dollar minus one cent! 3 times 33 cents! All of these things!
Wiggle Cat and Wiggle Shaq like it. So will you. (See how happy they are?)
Watchmage is also shortlisted for a whole bunch of awards right now, but you’ll be hearing tons more about that in the near future. If you like Historical Fantasy, word play, mythological creatures, well-developed characters, interesting worlds, intrigue, and flying dogs, you’ll love The Watchmage of Old New York.
And, you know, 99 cents. You can’t even get cawfee for that little. You know how I feel about cawfee.
This month, to coincide with the 99 cent sale for The Watchmage of Old New York, I signed up to advertise in several newsletters. It worked. My sales have shot through the roof! I’ve never had a sales rank so high. At what rank do I get to call myself “best selling?”
I don’t know if it’s cost effective yet, but I think that it’s a better plan that just using free sites. Use both. Use Twitter, use your blog, join a promo club like #RRBC. Try everything.
Try everything: that’s a pretty good motto in life. You only level up through experience.
Level up. Become epic. Oh, and buy “Watchmage” while it’s 99 cents. You’ll (probably) not be disappointed. The only mediocre review it’s received so far was “3 stars. Imaginative, but silly. Good for teens.” I can’t argue with that. There’s a lot of absurdest humor in it, but plenty of gritty stuff too. It’s a pretty good mirror of this website: sometimes I’m dark and gritty, sometimes I’m philosophical and political, most of the time I’m weird.
This website has gone over 1000 views a month every month since last August, with two months over 2000 and one over 3000. Thank you all for the support. I promise to continue with the geeky goodness, silly memes, and occasional serious topics.
Oh, and more of this guy:
Fly, Flappy, fly!
BTW: The Watchmage of Old New York is 99 cents on Amazon until May 31st (2016). *hypnotizing voice* buyyyyyy myyyy boooookkkkk…buyyyyy myyyy booookkkk. Or not, it’s cool.
Because sales are lagging, and because Amazon blocked or deleted a bunch of reviews from review sites, I’m having another 99 cent sale. If you like my writing and have an interest in history or fantasy (both would be optimal) you’ll probably dig this book. It has a 4.8 rating on Amazon right now, so people agree. You can buy it here.
Meanwhile, the sequel is with my beta-readers. So far I’m getting positive feedback for it. I don’t know when it’ll be out. My editor is only available during semester breaks (he’s a professor at NYU), and I want to do another draft based on the beta feedback before I give it to him. I wanted it to be out in November, but I’d rather have it out later than put out an inferior product.
On Sunday I will be at the Writers in the Mountains Book Festival. I’m nervous as hell because they’ll be agents there. I’m not very good with people, and usually embarrass myself. Combined with my anxiety and ocd disorders, this could be…awkward.
Hey everyone. I decided to have a sale on The Watchmage of Old New York for this week only. Why? Because I CAN!!!! Also because sales and reviews are falling off.
Sooo, the sale is on Amazon only, and only for the ebook. If you like my blog, you’ll probably like Watchmage. It’s the same writer, you know 😉 You’ll also be helping a neat-o dude like me. I consider every purchase a hug (and each review is a belly rub…I love belly rubs)
Yes, I know it’s shameless pandering…But I gotta eat.
In case you haven’t heard of The Watchmage of Old New York yet, let me hit you with the book blurb:
It’s the holidays and I’m a giving kinda guy, so I put The Watchmage of Old New Yorkup for only 99 cents on Amazon (on other sites it’s still $2.99). This’ll only be until New Years, so pick your copy up today.
Obviously this is only for the e-book. Amazon won’t let you sell the paper version for that cheap. If you want a signed paperback, with your own special dedication, contact me and I’ll make it happen.
Seriously, buy my book…do I have to bust out Jon Lovitz again?
Ok, so you don’t ACTUALLY have to buy my book. Honestly, I hate shilling like this. But if you like this blog, you’ll probably like my novels too.
