You do the talking

You Do the Talking

Today marks the 2nd birthday of Red Litten World, the third book in The Bell Forging Cycle. I tend to talk a lot about my books. So to change things up, I figured it’d be fun to celebrate the anniversary of Red Litten World by letting you speak. Below is a collection of reviews written by readers. I pulled these today. All of the selected reviews are all public, and I’ll link to their location. Since it’s Red Litten World’s birthday, let’s work backward from there…

Red Litten World by K. M. AlexanderRed Litten World


“…weird fantasy fiction at its finest.”

— Review of Red Litten World on Amazon


“It is pretty rare that I like the third book in a series as well as the first, but I do. The third book in this series is just as well-paced, suspenseful and intriguing as the last.”

— Review of Red Litten World on Amazon


“Reasonably entertaining Lovecraftian trilogy.”

— Review of Red Litten World on Amazon


“Thank the sweet little baby lord above that I had Red Litten World to keep me company! And I finished it in one day! And it was glorious!”

— Review of Red Litten World on Goodreads


“Red Litten World is the best so far. Loved being back in all the rich texture and detail of Lovat.”

Old Broken Road by K. M. AlexanderOld Broken Road

— Review of Old Broken Road on Amazon


“K.M. Alexander knows how to craft an interesting story and I can’t wait to devour the rest of his works.”

— Review of Old Broken Road on Amazon


“Well written and deftly plotted with great character development and plenty of thrills and action.”

— Review of Old Broken Road on Amazon


“Wish I could rate this one at six stars.”

— Review of Old Broken Road on Amazon

The Stars Were Right by K. M. AlexanderThe Stars Were Right


“The book never lulls. It’s hard to put down. The characters are likable, and the plot is well written.”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on Amazon


“One of the most imaginative action/suspense fantasy horror/thrillers I’ve ever read.”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on Amazon


“A great new spin on Lovecraftian themes, and definitely worth a read!”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on Amazon


“This is like reading for a book by Jack Vance in his prime for the first time, a Jeffrey Thomas’ Punktown story, or one of Gene Wolfe’s New Sun novels.”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on Amazon


“It is very rare to run across a Lovecraftian inspired tale that grabs a hold of you and doesn’t let go.”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on Amazon


“A gritty adventure through a city rich with life and death, in the style of a tale told over some cheap whiskey at a dusty dive bar on the outskirts of a bizarre Lovecraftian town.”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on Goodreads


“Alexander does a fantastic job evoking a tangled, towering city of hidden alleys, bustling markets, colorful inhabitants, and plenty of those hole-in-the-wall diners with the best local cuisine you’ve ever had.”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on Goodreads


“I fell in love with the protagonist Waldo from the start. Almost as much as I love the world in which he lives.”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on Goodreads


“The world is explained as needed by the main character and neither leaves us guessing about important story elements nor bores us with a world-history.”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on Powell’s


“If you are a hp Lovecraft fan then this book is for you. (Even if you arnt you should give it a read!) What a fantastic book!”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on iBooks


“This book changed the way I look at fantasy as a whole. It was also loaded with a ton of what I’d consider mystery as well. I read straight through the night and couldn’t put it down.”

— Review of The Stars Were Right on Barnes & Noble

Huge thanks to everyone who has taken the time and left reviews on my books. Reviews (both positive and negative) are vital to the success of a novel and its future promotion. Without a minimum number, a lot of promotional houses won’t let someone like me submit special offers on their work. Likewise, new readers won’t know what to expect before they make a purchase. So if you like a book (or a series of books) be sure to leave a review.

I know a lot of readers get stressed about reviews, but they tend to overthink them. Reviews don’t need to be an extensive book report, and you’re not writing an article. (Unless you want to of course.) Just write up a few quick sentences saying why you liked or loathed a particular novel. It helps a lot.

Last Day – Red Litten World eBook Only 99¢

I mentioned this on Twitter (follow me!) but I wanted to write a quick update for everyone else. Last week, my novel Red Litten World turned one. To celebrate for the last seven days eBook copies have been on sale for only 99¢ (a savings of five whole dollars!) Today is the final day to nab it at that price from any of the following stores:

KindleKoboiBooksNook • GooglePlay • My Store

After tonight prices will start reverting to the regular price of $5.99. So buy a copy, tell your friends, and please leave a review.

Happy Birthday, Red Litten World

It’s Red Litten World’s First Birthday

Today is the first birthday of Red Litten World, the third installment in my Lovecraftian urban fantasy series, The Bell Forging Cycle. It has been a fantastic launch, and I’ve loved hearing from readers who have enjoyed the book. I’m proud of it. Since it’s been a full year, I felt it was important to celebrate the occasion.

It’s Sale Time

For the next week, Red Litten World is available on eBook for only 99¢! So, if you haven’t read the most recent adventure of Waldo Bell, now is the most affordable time to check it out. Buy five copies! Give them to your family, share ’em with your friends. Hell, send them to your enemies. Hit any of the links below to grab a copy on the cheap.

KindleKoboiBooksNook • GooglePlay • My Store

The discounted sale price will only be available for a week. So, take advantage while you can.

Let’s Talk Reviews

As with most series, there was a significant drop-off in reviews of Red Litten World. Review fatigue is very common for books in a series, but that doesn’t make them any less valuable. Reviews are not only helpful for other readers; they also allow authors to take advantage of mailing lists, promotional newsletters, and review sites. So if you haven’t had a chance to leave a review of Red Litten World, please, please, please take a few moments and drop one on Amazon and Goodreads. It’d help me out considerably.

Where Are We Going from Here

It’s October, which is usually the month when I release a new title. (Based on the emails I’ve had to answer, many of you were aware of this.) However, there isn’t a release this year. Last December, I wrote a post called The State of the Cycle, where I went into details about the future of Wal’s tale. I invite you to read it if you haven’t. Don’t worry; his story isn’t over yet. There’s plenty more to come; I’m just taking some time to collect myself before I dive back into the madness.

In Closing

Once again, I need to extend a big thank you to those who have supported me over the years. Thanks to those who have left reviews and told their friends. Thanks everyone who has reached out to me and helped me promote my work. It’s all of you that contribute to making books like Red Litten World possible.

So, today, join me in wishing a happy birthday to Red Litten World. What a gem.

Red Litten World, 1 Week Old

It’s Tuesday, that means my latest Lovecraftian urban fantasy novel, Red Litten World, has been out for a week. So far it’s been a great launch, better than Old Broken Road which is impressive. I’ve already seen a few people post reviews on Amazon, iTunes, and over on Goodreads which is always exciting. And, early feedback suggests people are loving Wal’s return to Lovat. If you’ve finished the book, please help me out and leave an honest review either where you purchased the book or over on Goodreads. (Or both!) Reviews help a lot.

If you’re new to the world of the Territories or just need a refresher, check out some of the amazing fan art on my Fan Art Pinterest Board. A lot of very talented artists have shared work they created inspired by The Bell Forging Cycle. If you have your own art, please, send it to me I love sharing fan art with the community.

If you haven’t picked up your copy of Red Litten World, there are plenty of ways to do so! You can pick up paperback copies at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s, or direct from My Store. If you’d like to pick it up via eBook, you can get it from the usual suspects KindleKoboiBooksGooglePlayNook, and of course from My Store.

For those who ordered paperbacks from My Store last week, I owe you an apology. There was a slight delay. I received a shipment of books last week, but they weren’t up to my standards quality-wise. So I had to return them and get a new batch printed and it’s delayed my shipping a bit. While they were readable, I made the decision that they weren’t something I was willing to put out on the market. I have a fresh batch coming today and if all goes according to plan, I should have your books in the mail this week.

Finally thanks again to you, all of my amazing readers. I appreciate your excitement and passion about this crazy little series. It means a lot, it keeps me going. Thanks for making Red Litten World one of the books you’ve chosen to read this year. Enjoy your time with Wal back in the warren of Lovat. We’re not done yet and it’s going to be one hell of a ride.
