Four Months Until ROAR OF SKY is Out–and I Need Help!

Posted by on Jun 23, 2018 in Blog, breath of earth, call of fire, roar of sky | 0 comments

 

Four months from today, Roar of Sky will be released. As you likely know, Amazon is (for better or worse) the biggest bookseller in the world, and reviews and ratings on there matter. The higher those numbers, the more that Amazon’s algorithms will favor the books.

That’s where you, my awesome readers, can be a huge help. Breath of Earth and Call of Fire need more ratings and reviews on Amazon. Have you read one or both? Are they in your to-read pile–and can you get to them soon? My hope is that in the next month, by July 23rd:

Breath of Earth will reach at least 50 reviews

Call of Fire will reach at least 20 reviews

Please note that I’m not asking for 5-star reviews. I want honest feedback from people who have read the books. Judge them as you will. If you share your reviews on Facebook or Twitter, tag me, and maybe I can share them in turn!

Thank you!

Pixel Project

Sunday at 6pm I am participating in a YouTube Live chat with The Pixel Project, an awesome organization working to stop violence against women. They work with artists and authors throughout the year, and I’m delighted to talk with them for the first time! Tune in to ask questions or simply watch as I discuss my books and even read an excerpt from Call of Fire.

Directly access the chat at this link.

Where to get my signed books

Posted by on Aug 29, 2017 in Blog, breath of earth, call of fire, public speaking | Comments Off on Where to get my signed books

No matter where you are in the world, you can order signed copies of Call of Fire through Poisoned Pen Bookstore in Scottsdale, Arizona. They know their stuff–they handle massive quantities of books for authors like Diana Gabaldon. Order online, by phone, or walk in. They can hook you up with my other books, too: Clockwork Dagger, Clockwork Crown, Deep Roots, and Breath of Earth.

If you live around Phoenix, you have some other options, too. Last Saturday, I drove a big loop around the metropolitan area to visit as many Barnes & Noble stores as possible that listed Call of Fire as in-stock via their website. Here’s where I signed books:

Metro Center B&N: 1 Call of Fire
Happy Valley B&N: 3 2 copies Call of Fire
Desert Ridge B&N: whole bunch of signed Dagger, Crown, Breath of Earth, and Call of Fire
Tempe B&N: 1 Call of Fire (with more copies of that and Breath of Earth on order)

There are also a few signed copies of Call of Fire at Half Price Books stores around Indianapolis. I’m not sure exactly where they dispersed after Gen Con, so maybe you can get a kind of treasure hunt out of it.

If you want to see my books in your local stores–whether in Arizona or elsewhere–order them through the store! That way, the local manager sees there is a demand, and that encourages them to order more to stock the shelves.

Libraries kind of work the same way. You can request my books be stocked there. If the novels are checked out regularly, the librarians know, too, and will buy more books by that author… and will also replace books if they get too worn.

If you have any questions about where to find my books, comment here or use my contact form, or reach out on Twitter or Facebook. I’ll be happy to help you out!
