The next Monster Hunter Nation BOOK BOMB is going to be on November 3rd, for Mike Kupari’s solo debut sci-fi novel, Her Brother’s Keeper.
I’m going to try something a little different on this one. Now that Amazon has instituted a long delay (I’m guessing it is about 8 hours) before the sales rank changes, it has made it harder to get that awesome, wild west, crazy swing vibe that we used to get with BBs. And now the high point spike arrives in the middle of the night, when most people in North America are asleep.
So this time I’m actually going to stick up the BB post on the 2nd. The physical book actually officially releases on the 3rd. That’s our official date. So instead of having a 24 hour book bomb, it will be more like a 36 hour book bomb. That way hopefully we’ll see the cool number spike that day like we used to, instead of the day after.
I’m going to be on book tour during this, so I’ll update as much as I can. I’ll actually be in Seattle that day, but I should still be able to jump in occasionally to update the stats.
And please tell your friends and spread the word. I want this one to be a good one. Mike Kupari is a good man, one of my best friends, a damned good author, a vet, a retired EOD Tech, and if the purpose of Book Bombs is to give a deserving author who could really use a publicity boost, a boost, then Mike is the guy. Because life has kicked him in the nuts a few times, and this debut solo novel is an amazing opportunity to launch a great career.
Not to mention, the book is REALLY GOOD. I was one of the alpha readers. Honestly, what it most reminds me of is David Drake’s The Voyage (that is a good thing). It is an unabashed, people go into space and DO STUFF novel. It is world hopping space opera, where rocket ships land on their jets as God and Robert Heinlein intended.
So mark your calendars. The afternoon of the 2nd I’ll post the links, and then we’ll see how much of a boost we can give Mike.
