Been a long time since we’ve had a news and general happenings update around here, so let’s take a little stroll down through all things Oktopod.
- First up (and most excitingly, if you ask me), Ted Boone’s The Ghost, the Girl, and the Gun is now available as an audiostory! If you’re looking for an excellent way to fill a half-hour this weekend, you can download it here, or listen to it here courtesy of Podbean.
- Talking about The Ghost, the Girl, and the Gun, it’s now been downloaded roughly 2,700 times, and has moved up to the #2 spot in Feedbook’s New & Popular list! Way to go, Ted!
- Next, we’ve got some early numbers for Stars Rain Down. After nearly three weeks, our first full-length novel release has been bought 24 times, and downloaded over 1,700 times.
- The first customer reviews of Stars Rain Down are just starting to pop up at Amazon, and so far, we’ve got a couple 5-star reviews, and a single 2-star review. Take a look at what people are saying here, and let us know who’s right.
- You may have noticed a small price hike for Stars Rain Down over at Smashwords. This was done to ensure that none of their affiliates undercut Amazon’s price (which happens all too frequently), and we apologize for any inconvenience. If you’d like to purchase a copy at Smashwords, please use this coupon code for the original $2.99 price: ZC66Z
- Oktopod is expanding our Facebook presence. Be sure to like our main Facebook page, and the new pages for The Ghost, the Girl, and the Gun, and Stars Rain Down. As a special offer, every person who likes these pages in the next two days will be entered in a drawing to win absolutely nothing at all! (It was all I could afford.)
- As for this here Oktopod Blog, we are currently enjoying a record week in traffic thanks to some key links at the Mobileread forums and Susan Crealock’s wonderful Online Novels blog. Thank you so much for the link, Susan, and we hope all you new readers out there enjoy our work!
That’s pretty much it for today, fellow cephalopods. We hope to have a few more announcements in the coming weeks, so hang tight in the meantime and be sure to pass us around to all your friends!
