Next Book Bomb, Tuesday April 28th, RESIDUE

Mark your calenders. Our next Book Bomb is going to be next Tuesday, April 28th, for Steve Diamond’s debut novel, Residue.

For those of you not familiar with Book Bombs, that’s where we try to get as many people as possible to buy the same book on Amazon on the same day, in order to push it as high as possible in the sales rankings. The higher we get it, the more other people notice it. Success leads to success, and a good Book Bomb will get an author a whole bunch of new fans, and most importantly the author GETS PAID.

I was one of the alpha readers on this one. It is a great book, and Steve is a fantastic writer. It is an action/horror story, monsters, psychic powers, and I was his gun consultant. It is marketed as Young Adult, but that just means he has a teenage protagonist and doesn’t get to swear much or sex it up. 🙂

Thanks for the recommmendation!

Gettting good books out there is a great service to both authors and fandom. I wouldn’t pay too much attention to the foofraw from the bh SJWers, as much as they like to hyperventilate over Vox Day their own views are usually more repellent to the average SFF fan. Anyways, it’s the tale, not he who tells it, and that’s why they lost, and why SP is winning.

This is a really fantastic idea.

Scheduled for surgery that day…but I’ll try to report for duty. Looks like an interesting one.

Buying it! This sounds awesome!

Standing by for bombing run.

You know, it’s funny, but your book bombs probably get more books bought and read than the combined screeching of your Hugo detractors.

I took a peek out on Amazon and it seems interesting.

Maybe I’m blind but I can’t find it in book version on their website. Do you know if for some reason he is offering it on just Kindle?

There will indeed be a print version. Amazon messed up and listed the print version separately. It was just taken down to merge it properly in the same link as the Kindle version.

Print version will be there.

Woot! I make no promises, but I’ll read and review it.

Would you like the Overdrive Indy press how to packet? It’s a must if you’re hoping to sell to much of the library e-book market

But is it chock full of the sexist, intolerant, xenophobic, homophobic, Islamophobic, racist, and bigoted storytelling that we Sad Puppies crave?

The sample chapters at Amazon Do Not Have the Checklist in them. No mention yet of religion, sexual orientation – oh wait, the dude likes the sexy competent grrl with the Sig226. There’s the Sexist thing. Dang. Not A Victim Fail, too.

The content of the post had nothing to do with the Sad Puppies issue. Please don’t turn this post/thread – which is attempting to help an author out – into another rehashing of that issue. There are plenty of threads/comments in other posts for that.

Add that to the Pink SF versus Blue SF checklist:

– author has gun consultant. Check. Blue +1.

Well, I was going to buy the Kindle version today (since I didn’t see a dead tree version), but now that I see there’s a dead tree version as well, I’ll grab that on Tuesday instead.

It will probably go in my Hugo Stack for 2015, knowing Steve’s writing.

Mr Correia, I am sending you this message because I don’t know of a less public way to do so. As a result of your inspiration I recently attempted my first fisking. I will not post the link to it because I am not trying to use your platform in order to get exposure.I am simply trying to get the attention of a man far better than me at what I tried to do. All I am hoping for is your honest view of my attempt. You may contact me privately at my site, with any and all feedback. On… Read more »

It is an action/horror story, monsters, psychic powers, and I was his gun consultant. You had me at “monsters”. The rest was just taunting me that it’s not Tuesday the 28th yet. Dammit! BTW Larry, I don’t comment here much but I’ve been following your book bombs for a couple of years, have bought most of them, and you haven’t steered me wrong yet. I know you do this to help other writers out, but it helps me out too. Because otherwise I wouldn’t have discovered awesome books like “Freehold” by Michael Z. Williamson or “I Don’t Want To Kill… Read more »

Unless HBO picks this up.

It’s always about cheating with you, isn’t it? Moving from one con-game to another.

I looked it up and it says horror. just how scary is it? (lets just say I have a VERY low tolerance)

Sorta OT, but how are book sales going for the SP and RP books going since this kerfuffle started?

The Usual Problem.

Amazon.com will push me to Amazon.it.

I don’t know if it will appear in the total.
