Today was one of those awesome days that don’t come along anywhere near often enough for my taste. In preparation for the release of my next novel (THE CESTUS CONTRACT: WEIR CODEX BOOK 2), I put together a huge marketing push for my first novel, THE CESTUS CONCERN. I figured, if I could somehow get the word out on the series and how cool it was that it would help with the sequel.
Well, today all that effort paid off. As of 8:15pm Pacific Time, THE CESTUS CONCERN is now the #1 bestselling Science Fiction/Fantasy book on the Kindle and the #9 book overall on the Kindle. In addition to those fantastic spots, the first Weir Codex volume is also the #1 Bestselling Ebook on the following bestseller lists:
Science Fiction Military
Science Fiction Adventure
All-told, as I write this post, THE CESTUS CONCERN has been downloaded more than 14,000 times in less than 12 hours alone! It’s been a pretty amazing little experiment for a little sci-fi/cyberpunk/martial arts book that was self-published by a first-time novelist. I have been completely blown-away by the response from long-time fans and new readers alike.
I have to say, if you picked up THE CESTUS CONCERN and enjoyed it, you’re going to absolutely LOVE it’s sequel, THE CESTUS CONTRACT. As far as I went with action, adventure and martial arts in the first book, I take it all to the next level in THE CESTUS CONTRACT. Fans of big budget blockbuster movies will go nuts over it…and I hope you do, too. THE CESTUS CONTRACT will be released next week on Friday, November 29, 2013.
Thank you to everyone who has taken a chance of my baby…I appreciate it more than you know. And, as a parting gift, here’s a shot of my face the moment I saw I was #1 on Amazon tonight!
Now it’s back to work for me. Have a great night, all!
