It’s finally here! The 17th. The quintessential day of the year. I’m twenty-four, although I look 28 and I act like I’m thirteen.
Today is my one day sale and Daylight Hours is FREE. I hope that everyone and anyone goes out and downloads my first novel. It’s as easy as clicking a button.
If you’re a fan of vampires or paranormal thrillers, then read my novel. It’s a blend of wit, action, and mystery. It’s also the first book in The Kris Grant Series, with the second one coming out soon.
Once again, it’s my birthday wish from people from all over the world to take a chance on my novel and review it. I want to grow and strive as an author and I’m grateful for the…holy shit…I just looked up the number of downloads I’ve gotten from this free promotion and I’m at…
And it’s only ten in the morning! (I apologize for all of the exclamation marks in this post)
I honestly can’t express how amazed and stunned I am at seeing that. I’m sure that anyone else reading this who’s put up a book on Kindle is thinking, “That’s nothing.” and maybe it is, but screw those people because knowing that 115 people have downloaded my book has honestly just made my day.
Thank you everyone and keep them coming. Please, spread the news. Grant one high-functioning autistic child’s wishes of one day becoming a successful author by checking out his first novel and reviewing it. And thank you again for the 115 people who’ve downloaded Daylight Hours today so far because you’ve given me the best surprise birthday gift I could hope to get.
Yeah, I don’t know about you people, but there’s only 2 days left until Daylight Hours is FREE on Kindle! Free!
This is pretty great news considering I finally have the chance to just give the book away to people. Spread the word, everyone. The first novel in The Kris Grant Series is on its way to rising up the ranks. I’m determined to make it a best-seller this year with these free promotions and Kindle exclusivity.
I still have chapters of the book posted on this site as well, so check it out in advance.
Just remember, there’s nothing wrong with supporting an indie author and downloading a free eBook with the click of a mouse or the tap of a finger. I mean, I’m kind of counting on it. So save the date. January 17, 2013: Free Kindle Book Day! For my book at least.
January 17th is one of the most under-appreciated, wonderful, rich, and fulfilling days of the year filled with more purpose and meaning than any other day in human history as far as I know.
It’s my birthday.
It’s also going to be the day when Daylight Hours will be 100% FREE to download from Amazon.com for your Kindle and Kindle Apps. I know, I’m an attention whore. What can you do?
So, what does this mean? Well, starting at roughly midnight on one of the most spectacular days in human history, you will be able to download Daylight Hours for free. I know, it’s pretty crazy. This was my first novel and Kris Grant is a very unique character in a very stale genre. If you love urban fantasy, vampire novels, or action and adventure with a little paranormal fantasy, then you’ll love Daylight Hours. Is it better than True Blood (every season after season 1)? If you’re a fan, give my book a chance and tell me yourself.
January 17th will not only be me celebrating the birth of myself, but I will also be blowing up the internet with posts and links and more posts and links promoting the book on the one day that it will be completely free to read. There’s no reason not to download the book to your phone or any device you have with Kindle on it because, well, when is anything in this world free?
I want to thank everyone in advance already for any and all support. As an indie author, it’s rough trying to break into the scene of being a “published author”. I’m gonna give it my all and hopefully enough people download and read the first novel in the Kris Grant Series.
That damned holiday where you’re thankful for three day’s worth of leftovers is finally over. The turkey’s gone. The relatives have all gone back to their own homes. It’s finally time to get back to work. *cracks knuckles*
Thanksgiving wasn’t too bad. I somehow managed to get more days off during this chaotic holiday than in previous years, which I’m thankful for. I got to spend time with the niece and the family. I survived, which is better than I was expecting. I don’t really enjoy eating so much food and pie when I’m attempting to be healthy. I mean, I had no choice but to eat that Berry Blast pie, and the Apple Pie…and the Pumpkin Pie…
Black Friday was atrocious this year. I still can’t believe that Walmart’s doorbuster sales started at 8pm. What the hell happened to Thanksgiving dinner? I don’t know about other states, but I guess in light of recent events, Florida will have to start doing everything early so we can get done on time. There wasn’t even anything worth going out for this year, but tradition of going out with the Mrs. and meeting up with my friend brought me out until 2am.
As I said, Thanksgiving is over, the weekend is gone, and it’s back to work. I have a few people test-reading the sequel to Daylight Hours now. I’m hoping to hear back from them soon. It’s nerve-wracking and exciting all at once to let people read your work. Especially if it’s a sequel and they enjoyed the first novel. I stepped away from The Kris Grant Series for a bit and started drawing up notes on a new story idea. It was a beautiful morning here in South Florida and it was refreshing to wake up and write in a notebook with pen and paper with the sun on me and no cloud in sight.
Monday is almost here. That means another free chapter of Daylight Hours. We’re up to Chapter 17 so far. I’m hoping that any new readers keeping up with the chapters is enjoying the novel so far. It gets better. I promise. Although, I wrote it, so you can’t really trust me. I guess you’ll just have to keep reading and make your own conclusions in the end by writing a review of the novel online. But what do I know?
I hope everyone out there had a good holiday. I’m glad I got to see my family–despite any attempts to end their lives–and I can’t wait to see them again.
