Sometimes people ask me what is best, ordering a book online, buying it from a local bookstore or from me at a signing.
Here’s what helps the most: Pre-ordering the book on Amazon.
(No, I’m not throwing my local bookstore under the bus. More on that in a minute).
These days, the main success indicator, particularly for an indie, is Amazon Sales Rank. And the best way to push up the chart is with big one-day sales, preferably the first day the book is released.
Guess when pre-order sales are credited? On Release Day. For Prisoner, this
The first day Traveler was released, with no advance notice or pre-orders, it hit #14 in Amazon’s Sci Fi/Time Travel. With your help, I think Prisoner could hit #1.
The Prisoner e-book is just $2.99. If you have any interest at all in reading it, please pre-order it right now at this link (or click on the picture).
Now, what if you would rather support your local bookstore, or just prefer a real book?
Easy. Pre-order the e-book. Show it to me on your device if you attend a signing, and I will happily rebate you $3.00 (or buy you a cocktail) when you buy a paper edition. You even make a $.01 profit! If it’s not convenient for us to meet in person, contact me by email, Facebook, Twitter, and we’ll work something out.
I can hardly wait for you to read the next volume of Trav’s adventures!
