Since this seems to be the done thing here, let me introduce my debut novel:|
I canít die, at least, not in the traditional sense. Every time Iím killed, I wake up with a new body, in the same place. Over and over and over again.
How did I discover this? I was forced to kill myself by the evil bastard who I used to call my boss. He knew the struggles I was facing, and he exploited them.
But he didn't know I would be coming back.
This is my story. This is my revenge. This will not end well.
As you can see, it's a dark revenge thriller. Want an idea of the style? You can read a sample on amazon's page, or perhaps watch the trailer:
I don't really understand the point of book trailers, but I was told to make one, so there it is.
Kindle owners (or even non-kindle owners who have a kindle app) head here.
For the paper-lovers (or tree-haters?) there is also a paperback version available on amazon.co.uk which can be found here. Be sure to switch to the GBP store at the bottom of the page!
Finally, there is a giveaway of the paperback on Goodreads which is ending on the 31st.
Feel free to abuse, criticise, or simply speak your mind in here. I'd love to hear any feedback
Thanks for reading!

Steam - iN5OMANiAC
PSN - iN5OMANiCAL
Good luck with the release.
thanks for the support guys.
Technohippy - as you were the post that inspired me, I've just bought a copy of yours!
Good job dude, and good luck with it. Will buy and add to the pile when I get the chance!
Yay I'm an inspiration
I've bought a copy in return and finally got round to buying meme's while I was at it.
If you haven't already check out the Kindle Users Forums (http://www.kuforum.co.uk/kindleusersforum/), the official Amazon forums are a bit hostile to new authors, but these are more receptive as long as you follow the rules.
well, inspired me to create this thread

Good luck, sounds interesting.
From the title, I initially thought you were writing about the EG forum
'fraid not, though what a lovely idea for the next one
Good job! We're springing up EG indie authors like wildfire. Maybe we should have our own group.

Can I join? I realise this would require me to actually finish something.
Yeah, I figure a group for published or attempting-to-publish authors would be decent - separate from the writer's group so we can dispense advice on publishing, editing etc rather than just critique. I'll set it up.
@meme signed up!

Best of luck with the book, funkstar! I'll nip over to Amazon and check it out over lunch, I think.
I've joined the group, a good idea.

Is there a thread with links to all the EGers ebooks? I'd love to try them all but would forget who wrote what.
bump: now on amazon.co.uk in paperback format for £7.84
Nice, I'm hoping to start putting the print edition for mine together soon.
@TechnoHippy its actually not to painful if you export a pdf and make sure that the paper-size/margins match what createspace tell you!
That's good to know. I'm having another proof read pass done, so when that's complete I'll start looking into it.

Just bought a copy due to your interview on TH's site. Good promoing!
Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!
ah thanks! and thanks TH i guess
No problem, you'll be pleased to know your interview has shot to the 3rd most popular post on my blog
I hope we'll get you back when you publish your next book.
Always happy to oblige!
I'd be interested to hear the results of your marketing experience - will there be another post on the blog about it?
Oh yes. I'll be posting in a few days about how the paid advertising has gone. Sometime soon I'll give a free day a try.
I'll also add a page to collate the various marketing posts.
I also need to get started on the paperback, but I'm waiting for a proofread before I start on that.
Good stuff. How are sales going?
Slow at the moment but fairly consistent... I'm moderately happy given that it's the wrong time of year for book sales and I haven't had any coverage as yet (TH's was my first posted), but I have a few interviews and book reviews due over September - October and my giveaway on goodreads had good interest. Of course it's tough to really gauge how many pageviews each of these sites generate, but I figure any extra exposure can't hurt!
Short version - hoping things will pick up when the coverage increases. Everyone (so far) who has read the book say they really enjoyed it so fingers crossed
