Stars Rain Down, Free Promotion Update!

With 13.5 hours left in the promotion, Stars Rain Down has been downloaded just over 1400 times! The book is currently #2 in free Space Opera, Space Exploration, and Alien Invasion, and #10 in free Science-Fiction!

Color me jazzed! By my best estimates, we should close out with somewhere around 2,500 copies total, which is simply tremendous for a book that’s sold less than 10 copies in the past year.

There’s still time to grab yours, of course! In fact, there are exactly 13 hours and 24 minutes, so head on over to Amazon and get clicking!

First Sale of the Year!

After a bit of oddness and waiting with Amazon, I’m happy to announce that we’re (read: I’m) having our first sale of the year. What exactly is available? Absolutely stonking everything, thanks for asking.

Head on over to my author page at Amazon, and you should find five titles all free for the taking. If you don’t find that, either I’ve broken the hyperlink or Amazon is having some kind of problem. Both have been known to happen.

Be sure to tell your sister, tell your friends, and tell that weird guy at the gas station who always stares at your kneecaps with lusty eyes. Of course, this sale can’t come at a better time, as my sales have been slowly circling the toilet since the start of the year. With a little luck, this will make me a little more visible again.

Stars Rain Down will also be dropping back down to it’s earlier, more sane price once the sale is over. While I’ve got you here, I’d like to take a moment to thank the kind soul who bought a copy for 10 bones. Thank you! If I ever run into you on the street, I’ll buy you a beer. One that’s worth less than $7 (my inner businessman informs me), but a beer nonetheless.

Also, I’ll be launching a new running column called Odds Without Ends right here at the Oktopod Blog. That should be starting around Wednesday of next week, so stay tuned!

Cheers, and have a great weekend!

They may take our lives, but they’ll never take our freedom!

Over at the Amazon Kindle Store, I’m burning up the last day of Free Promotion for Stars Rain Down, and I’ve made The Salvaged Sword of Vengar and Arcana Universalis: Terminus free today as well. If you’re missing copies of any of the above, I should be swatting you in the nose with a newspaper… oh, and you should totally hop on over and grab one!

As always, these releases are Creative Commons licensed, meaning you’re free to read, enjoy, and pass them along to friends. I think it’s a pretty generous deal, if I do say so myself. And I do. That felt oddly recursive.

Oh, and if you happen to be a Woot user, could I possibly ask you to vote up my listing? I’d be forever in your debt… for approximately one click at the time and place of your choosing. My generosity truly knows no bounds.

In tangentially related news, the second part of Arcana Universalis is (finally!) done, and is currently in editing. I also need to design a cover, but I don’t anticipate either taking very long, so be on the look-out for a release next week! Exciting times, aren’t they?

Well, I think so, so nyah-nyah. :p
