Amazon Afterglow

5 Apr

I woke up today and found a This:

This is best viewed with your sound system set to "girly scream."

This is best viewed with your sound system set to “shrill girly squeak.”

It’s been going up all morning, too.  I know it’s not sustainable, I know it’s just release day traffic, but it’s still more than I had hoped for.  When you ask people what they want to read, “Genre science fiction based on a webcomic and which is sort of a murder mystery but not really” doesn’t pop on the radar.

And people are leaving the best reviews!

Now I have to go figure out how to get rid of the “Approve Comments” setting on this page because there is no reason to comment-block you guys.  That’s just silly. (Edit: Fixed!)

    Awww, I missed buying the book on your actual release day! Today will just have to do. I won’t be able to put a review up until I finish reading, and given my current workload that might be days from now, but rest assured I’ll get one up there. Thanks for publishing!

      Thank you! Be sure to check out the “Acknowledgements and Apologies” section at the end! Girl Genius gets a shoutout. They sort-of-not-really inspired the villain with a throwaway line a few years back.

    So excited for the book! I don’t have a Kindle, so I just bought it through your store, but I will also be writing a review about how great the book is (because I’m sure it will be) on Amazon, as soon as I finish it.

    This is great news! About the only think missing in the book is a synopsis that explains a bit. My buddy read the first five chapters over lunch and loved it, but was really puzzled about what was going on.

    Yeah, synopsis and intros are a little hokey, but if Doc Smith could carry it off for the Lensman series… (grin)

    The book is really great. 🙂
