A couple of years ago, I posted here asking for help with pre-ordering copies of my first book, “A Gentleman’s Murder” – or as it was called then, “Murder at the Veterans’ Club”. Thanks to everyone’s support, that book finally got itself published in July, and since then has been doing pretty well: awesome reviews, and even an option for development into a TV series. So, thank you, all, for that.
But now I’ve got a second book taking pre-orders: “Cat’s Paw”, a somewhat darker tale that I describe as “Agatha Christie’s ‘Ordeal By Innocence’ meets H.G. Wells’s ‘The Island of Doctor Moreau’”. Yes, just a slight touch of horror going on there.
Now, as then, publication depends on the strength of pre-orders, and I’m applying to the IF community to consider pitching in.
- Every person who pre-orders counts, whether the pre-order is for an ebook or a print book or for ten print books.
- I have up to 21 November 2018 (two months!) to get as many pre-orders as I can. [EDIT: Extended to 14 December 2018.]
- This is part of a contest, so I need to maintain a top-three position with respect to number of people pre-ordering. As of this writing, most contestants haven’t quite begun pre-orders yet, so the leader board might be a bit deceptive: who knows how they’re all going to fare when they get started.
This is my “prove you’re not just a flash in the pan” book, and I need your help for it. The pre-order website is here: https://www.inkshares.com/books/cat-s-paw.
Thanks. Here’s wishing everyone a good breakfast.
(P.S. Looks like my best competition is Z.Z. Traver, who is actually also a member of the IF community under a nom de plume. Might consider giving him some support as well.)
