Monster Hunter Nemesis eBook is out early

I don’t actually know why the eBook is out a couple weeks before the book, but hey, whatever. 🙂

#3 fantasy in the Kindle store right now.

Monster Hunter Nemesis (Monster Hunters International Book 5)

 

EDIT: Considering this isn’t a book bomb or anything like that, it is still kind of fun to see this today:

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #621 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)

#1 and #2 are Laurel K. Hamilton and Jim Butcher’s new books. Both of them are awesome writers and all around cool people, who are on top of the game, so I’m in excellent company! 🙂  On the other list, it is books and audio too, and I was surprised to see that the MHI audiobook which has been out for years is sitting at #7.

Not too shabby for a “little known author”. Maybe at this rate someday I’ll qualify as a *real* writer. 🙂

EDIT 2: BOOM!

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #399 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)

EDIT 3: NUMBER ONE WITH A BULLET!

EDIT 4: Hell, if it keeps climbing, I’m going to keep editing. 🙂

Bought it and finished it in less than 12 hours Larry. Awesome book! Makes me wish I was a slower reader so it would last longer. 🙂

Yeah. Larry needs to write longer books. The next Monster Hunter book should be about equal to all 5 published Game of Thrones books. Five Thousand pages of Owen shooting monsters would be epic.

The ebooks always come out on the 16th, or the 15th if you’d pre-bought the monthly bundle.

Always the 16th. People getting the bundle don’t get access to the last quarter until then.

Ah, yes. That’s right, it changed when the amazon deal with Baen went down.

Amazon also released Kratman’s “The Rod and the Axe” on Kindle at the same time they released “Nemesis.” Bought ’em both; read “Nemesis” in a single sitting (and reviewed it Monday night for Amazon), and am about halfway through the Kratman.

(Off-the-cuff review of “Axe” so far: Good, but needs more insane killing. Especially of Lucretia Arbeit. 😛 )

I personally enjoyed the pun about the Legion’s gun smuggling ship in Rod – it was made better since the eARC was out in time for Easter 🙂

I spent a half hour yesterday morning clicking Refresh on Baen’s page until the Add to Cart button appeared just before noon. I figured it was more important than what my boss wanted me to do.

Crap! So do I finish (re-)listening to the audible version of the incredibly awesome Warbound… or put that aside and start my kindle version of MHN? What should I do, oh what should I do?

Finish WARBOUND, so it won’t distract you when you read MONSTER HUNTER NEMESIS.

Needs to go all the way, so Larry can suit up, add the shades, loom on up to the microphone and growl:

“Nemesis. One.”

I got a chuckle out of “Grand Donald Jefferson. Agent five-two-two-niner-three” and “Franks, One”.

That gave me a chuckle too. 🙂

I think I’m going to start my Amazon review with this quote: “If you aren’t scared of Franks, then you haven’t been paying attention.” 😀

“I don’t actually know why the eBook is out a couple weeks before the book …”

Because some ditz thought it would take e-books three weeks to ship to the stores?

boballab
Guest

It is because Baen releases the finished version of the Ebook on the 16th of the month prior to the dead tree being releases as part of the bundle: Here’s how the Monthly Baen Bundle program works: With this program, you can start reading upcoming releases prior to their publication. We release three segments of each new novel, one month apart, beginning three months before the publication date. Log back in after noon EST on or about the 16th of every preceding month to receive the updated Ebook. … About two weeks after we release the full Ebook, bookstores around… Read more »

For us nook(y) lovers, it’s also available at Barnes and Noble. Bought and got.
And thanks, Larry. You’re my 4th favorite author (behind Heinlein, Bujold, & Larry Niven) and I’m truly jazzed about your output.

I’m also a nook user but still get my Monster Hunter fix through Baen’s own site rather than through B&N because once I buy the thing I can get it downloaded in multiple formats from them. So I have the Epub version on my Nook and an RTF version on my PC (along with a backup copy of the Epub) for reading on it.

Larry, I was unable to find a direct email but regarding your tweet about Marion Z B. it was her 2nd husband that was the abuser she “just ” enabled. Small difference but with the brigades of “read until offended” any small inaccuracy (sic) will bring them out in droves.

Ah, Larry, I’m sure that one day… you’ll be a ‘real author’ … whatever that may mean! Until then I guess the popularity of your books and the money you make just has to be a source of comfort to you… Somehow! *tragic pose!*

Also CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ^o^ /

Congrats on the new one. The cover looks awesome.

I see that, in perfect timing, Mr. Hines has decided to launch another attack at your character, and Twitchy.com has covered your twitter exchange with Mr. Scalzi. Bound to drive new eyeballs to your books, Larry.

With salesmen like Messrs. Scalzi and Hines, you’re likely to go far. One day, I wager, you will become a “real writer.”

I was just reading that, and alas, 10 hours is too late to really enter the Fray. I wanted to Tag Scalzi as being bigoted against BDSMers with that “Beating my wife” comment. (At least to his side, that should matter.)

Glad to hear the book is doing well! It was another great read with a “very interesting” ending (how do you sleep at night after putting these cliffhangers over on us?). But I still chuckle out loud every time I think of the now-classic line, “Oh shit! It’s Franks!” What you’ve done so brilliantly is created a universe with so many interesting characters that you can use any of them as the centerpiece of a really enjoyable story. And sometimes reading is work (I’m slowly slogging through the Gulag Archipelago, which is brilliant but really draining to read) but sometimes… Read more »

A little over half way done, stayed up until 12:30 am last night. So I’m dragging this morning.

I’m at the point where *spoiler* and it was heart wrenchingly sad and was blindsided by *spoiler* It was a one-two punch. I never thought you’d go there. I know it’s an overused euphemism, but it’s certainly a game changer for the series going forward. I can’t wait to see where the story goes next.

I am primarily an audio book listener these days, with a job as an engineer, a very busy 3 year old and a wife with medical issues I don’t find much time to sit and read anymore. After pre-ordering from audible I looked at ebook and Amazon and saw.

At the publisher’s request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

Had to go ahead and buy a copy of the ebook too.

Wow! I knew Franks was a cold fish, but I never expected that! Coolness. An unexpected treat was more Red. Heather’s my favorite character (sorry Owen, Julie, Earl) so I was really glad to see her show up. I’m just sorry we never got to see her go Full-Wolf on the bad guys, though she did pretty darn well even under non-optimal circumstances. I hope they got Stricken’s offer on video-tape, just in case her new boss needs formal proof. Can’t wait for the next one. Please write faster.

That was my supposition, I just thought it would be nice to have the video in case some other higher-up bureaucrat tried to override Mrs. Flierl(sp?) and complain Heather hadn’t fulfilled her contract. That’s pretty unlikely, I realize, especially now that MCB’s got a new head as well. It looks like things are falling into place for both of those organizations to actually be useful in the Big Battle to come.

Long ago I snapped up each new Anita Blake book when it came out, but after half a dozen or so, they started turning into endless turgid “relationships” and poorly-written porn. Don’t get me wrong, I *like* porn, but I have standards… Despite that, Laurell K. Hamilton still gets a major “right on!” for trying to get her gun stuff right, and getting help from some guy with some weird foreign name like “Massad Ayoob.” Apparently the bulk of Hamilton’s readers wanted “modern power female” instead of “Carla the Barbarian”, and I can’t really fault an author for writing what… Read more »

I have to agree, the Anita Blake books were more fun when it was sexual tension rather than actual sex.

Unfortunately, they don’t have G-Nome from Vendetta with Thug Life chest tattoo (I’m sure Tupac’s family would sue). The gun should also be corrected size .32 semi-automatic.
