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.
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.
