John and I are so psyched that this story resonates with so many people. We’ve gotten some really awesome and thoughtful reviews on Amazon US & UK. We have a few glowing five-star reviews, and I want to thank each and every one of you that took the time to read and review. As authors, there’s an unwritten rule that we’re not supposed to respond to reviews, so I have to thank you all here instead of on Amazon or GoodReads. I wanted to remind those of you who are interested, but haven’t yet pulled the trigger, that the $5.99 Kindle version is an introductory price, and after the Amazon infamous 90-day cliff, the price will go up. Also, for those of you who are retailers, the 55% wholesale discount on the hardcover will also end on the same date.
John and I will be at the Payson Book Festival in late July. It occurred to me that I’ve never introduced you blog denizens to John. That’s a gross oversight on my part since without him, War of the Worlds: Retaliation would not exist. Here’s John’s official bio:
John J. Rust was born in New Jersey. He studied broadcasting and journalism at Mercer County Community College in New Jersey and the College of Mount St. Vincent in New York. He moved to Arizona in 1996, where he works as the Sports Director for an Arizona radio group.
For those of you who know about my background, yes, John and I work for the same radio group in Arizona. I’m blessed to both work with John and write with him. I hope you’ll check out his works, including his sea monster novel, Sea Raptor, published by Severed Press. I know that John has a sequel to his military/political thriller coming out this year. He’s also a sports nerd, and has written two different non-fiction sports books.
Anyway, The english trailer and the audiobook prologue are after the jump, so please share these on Twitter and Facebook. Heck, I’d be happy if you shouted it from the corner at passers by.
I’m going to be doing a Kickstarter campaign pretty soon to raise the money to pay Edo Camponeschi to narrate the audiobook. I’m gonna need a little over $1,000.00 based on the number of finished hours ACX says it is. Here is the latest trailer, with Edo narrating, and he also did a short sample narration here.
