Today we are Book Bombing Julie Frost’s debut novel Pack Dynamics!
For those of you unfamiliar with Book Bombs, I pick a novel from a good author who needs a publicity boost. Then we try to get as many people as possible to buy their book on Amazon on the same day. Because the sales ratings change hourly, this causes the book to go up in the rankings. The higher it gets and the more lists it shows up on, the more new people see it, and the more exposure the author gets. Success leads to more success, the author gets new readers, and most importantly GETS PAID.
So please tell your friends!
Let me tell you a little bit about Julie Frost. I’ve known her since I first got started as a writer. Julie is awesome. She’s been doing short fiction forever, and doing pretty well at it. She’s been a finalist in Writers of the Future a bunch of times. Julie is a really good short story author. She’s sold a pile of short stories, and that whole time I kept bugging her about how if you want to make a living novels are where it is at.
I didn’t really get to know Julie well however, until the day that I fisked Mrs. Magazine’s idiotic review of Iron Man 2. When the angry feminists turned out to burn Robert Downey Jr. at the stake, Julie started kicking their asses. It was excellent.
Last year I was doing a book signing at Kevin J. Anderson’s super booth at some con, and Julie came by to say hi. I introduced her to Kevin, being a publisher, and Julie, being a professional, immediately tried to pitch him a book. Now Kevin gets this a lot, but Julie had me there. I hadn’t read the novel, but I had read her other stories and knew that she had skills, so I vouched for her. So I told Kevin he should let her skip the slush pile, and move her to the top of the submissions.
Kevin, being a shrewd businessman, then asked me if first, he picked Julie up, would I be willing to read the book and blurb it. Yep. Second, would I Book Bomb it? 😀 Well today is your answer.
Anyways, the book is fun. I enjoyed it. It is a detective story with nanotech enhanced werewolves. I think you guys will like it. And Julie is awesome, so I want to see her get a good career boost right out the gate. So please, tell your friends.
Right now Julie in paper Julie is at:

I will update this throughout the day. The thing is Amazon has put in a delay, so the book sales from this morning won’t really start showing up until late this afternoon. And we should hit the peak late tonight. I miss the old wild west days where an hour after the Book Bomb launched we were seeing wild swings. 🙂
EDIT: 2:00 MT and it is FINALLY starting to move with the sales from first thing this morning.
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #23,424 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store)
- #1069 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Paranormal & Urban
- #1262 in Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Fantasy > Paranormal & Urban
I hate that delay. Book Bombs used to be so much crazier! 😀
EDIT 2: First thing in the morning, so it’ll be down from whatever the high was last night.
