BOOK BOMB! Primordial Threat by M.A. Rothman

It is Book Bomb Day!

A Book Bomb is when we pick out a deserving author who could use a publicity boost, and get as many people as possible to buy their book in the same day on Amazon. The more people who buy, the higher it goes in the sales rankings. Once it gets on some bestseller lists, that gets it in front of even more new eyes. Success breeds success, the author gets new readers, and most importantly, the author GETS PAID.

Today’s Book Bomb is for Primordial Threat, by M.A. Rothman.

Primordial Threat
by M.A. Rothman

I’ve known him for several years, before he launched his own writing career. If you’ll recall the Israeli archaeologist who gets his ass kicked by the ghost of Sextus Bassus  in Monster Hunter Siege was named Dr. Rothman. 🙂

He’s a great guy, and even though he’s just starting his writing career, he’s very talented. I’ve been listening to the Primordial Threat audiobook and it’s really good.

It’s old school, big idea SciFi, man against nature, I’m talking end of our solar system kind of danger, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it.

So please tell your friends and share the link. The key to a good Book Bomb is getting as many new eyeballs on a deserving author as possible.

This time we are trying something a little different. This is the first time I’ve ever run a weekend Book Bomb. Normally when I schedule a book for a Book Bombing it is way further down the best seller lists, too, and this was when we put it on the calendar. But Rothman asked me to shoot for this date because he was going to be doing a bunch of publicity himself beforehand and drop the eBook price all the way down to 99 cents.

And oh boy, is it working.

Right now, Friday at 8:00 MST:

EDIT: Because it was Saturday I wasn’t around my computer as much to update, but Primordial got to #9 in the ENTIRE KINDLE STORE.

It was #1 in every genre it was listed in.

  1. I picked this up based on Sarah’s blog post earlier this week.

    It’s a good read, I started reading sometime after 9pm and finished it in one sitting (and was rather tired at work the next day)

  2. Just picked up a copy and it was showing as #5 in Hard SF and #2 in Colonization SF. Looking forward to reading it tonight!

  3. Question: Does it help the effort when purchasing from otjer countries’ Amazon storefronts (e.g. Amazon.com.au)?

    1. I purchased by clicking the link and I live in Australia, but I had an old-school .com Amazon account. I think Amazon counts purchases globally, so probably.

  4. It’s awesome. Thanks for posting it. I was worried that for sales Rothman might be tempted to say a spell and bring back the dead again, but I guess he’s learned his lesson.
