IT CAME IT CAME IT CAME!

OK, I know I said I wouldn't put anything up here until tomorrow, and that was coincidentally when the newest proof of TQM was supposed to arrive, but IT CAME TODAY SQUEEEEEEEEE!
Yay yay yay! I'm an actual author now an' I can get money for the story I wrote an' everything! I'm so happy!

OK, but seriously, buy my book. This is probably the only time I'll be shamelessly and unapologetically pimping for myself, because now there's a link to buy it over in yonder sidebar. (Please buy my book!)

O.K already!
I bought it , but only because it's very good and despite it costing almost as much to ship to the U.K as it costs to buy.

No seriously congratulations, hope it sells like hot cakes and wins a Hugo or whatever

Ordered, based on Ebonmuse's glowing review. I look forward to reading it!

KarateMonkey said...

I'm intrigued by the review at Daylight Atheism.

Is it available anywhere as an E-book?

Buying as we speak. If Ebon liked it, how could it be bad? Plus your comments are some of my favs on his blog, so another point in it's favor. And what's that? A pun in the title? Sold! (The deleted "Empty Name" comment was me. Forgot to allow Blogger to show my name when commenting.)

I am guessing (since you're on Createspace) that you already know this, but in case you don't: be sure to enter Amazon's Breakthrough Novel contest!

@ KarateMonkey: Umm... to my knowledge, you can't "purchase" it as an e-book... but I made a PDF of it which I uploaded to CreateSpace. I'm sure we can come to some sort of arrangement via e-mail, or if there's something I'm simply missing then I'd be happy to make it available to the public as a purchaseable e-book.

@ Yahzi: While I knew of the breakthrough novel contest, I had not entered it. But I did now! Wish me luck!

I mostly only read stuff on my ereader these days, so PDF doesn't really do me much good. It's a bit of a pain on the small screen.

If releasing it as an eBook is something that sounds interesting to you I might suggest that smashwords is a good place to start, and the MobileRead forums is a good place for any questions that come up.

D said...

KarateMonkey,
I checked CreateSpace, and I wasn't able to find any e-book options, so I'm going with Smashwords at your suggestion. I hope to have it done by this evening, so I'll let you know when it's finished. Thanks for the tip!

KarateMonkey said...

Cool. Good luck with it.

I got my copy! Unfortunately, I'm too tired and too far behind in my homework to be able to read it right now. Soon. Very soon.

Steve Bowen said...

Hooray! My copy arrived, finally. Well done D, 'tis a fine book.

D said...

Hooray! I'm glad you guys got your copies. Thanks again for buying! And good luck with your studies, Mat!

Mat Wilder said...

I started reading it today!...And I finished it today. It was SO good! I absolutely loved it.

D said...

Hey, thanks! Glad you liked it!
