It feels weird promoting this in light of everything that’s happened over the last few days, but here we are. Pretty much what the title says—today is the last day you can buy my weird little Lovecraftian urban fantasy novel, The Stars Were Right, for only 99¢—all the profits will be donated to the World Central Kitchen in their fight against food insecurity here in America and abroad. I’ll reveal the results tomorrow! (They’re quite exciting.)
Links to purchase the ebook are below. Already have a copy? Consider buying one for your friends or a family member who might want a little escapism right now.
I am also aware that many are facing severe economic instability. One in four Americans is out of work. For them, perhaps you, money is tight. If your interested in reading my book but can’t swing the 99¢, you can also download the book for free. (I’m serious.) Use the Gumroad link above and set the price at zero and bam, it’s yours. On me. Like the promotion, this will also end tonight. So don’t delay!
What if I want to help, but really don’t want an eBook?
No pressure! If you want to help but aren’t interested in my book, you can donate directly to the WCK by clicking the link below. They have options for a single donation, or you can become a monthly donor. It’s a phenomenal charity which I detailed in this post.
Want to help in other ways? Follow the WCK on social media, they’re very active on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, and you can get a glimpse at the noble work they’re doing. Want to volunteer? Details on how you can help are available here.
If you’re at all like me, chances are you could use a little escapism these days. Something to pull you away from refreshing news feeds and doomscrolling through social media all day. Perhaps I can help?
Let’s Give Back
For the next thirty days I’ve dropped the eBook price of my urban fantasy novelThe Stars Were Right down to 99¢ everywhere it’s sold. Unfortunately, that’s as low as retailers will let me go, but let’s turn that into something useful. Along with the price reduction, I’ll be donating 100% of the profits to the World Central Kitchen who is working to safely distribute fresh, individually packaged meals in communities that need help. It’s an incredible charity that has become vital in recent days, and it’s one I’m proud to support. So, no matter where you buy The Stars Were Right, you get a bit of escapism, and together we help feed those in need during this time of crisis. Not a bad deal, right?
You can buy the eBook from any of the retailers listed below. Want to help me give more to the World Central Kitchen? Use Gumroad and name your price—100% of the earnings will be donated at the end of the promotion.
I realize as I put this book on sale, an astronomical number of people have lost their jobs over the last few weeks. To those folks, even 99¢ can seem like a lot to swing for a piece of entertainment. So, if you can’t afford to buy the book right now, you can download it for free. Use the Gumroad link above and set the price at zero and bam, it’s yours.
We’re all in this together. Stay home. Stay healthy. Let’s flatten the curve.
I hope you enjoy losing yourself in a book for a bit.
Happy 2018, roaders. This is just a quick post to remind everyone that today is the final day to get ebooks of Red Litten World—the third novel of the Bell Forging Cycle—for only 99¢!
Tomorrow it will slowly start reverting back to its regular price of $5.99. I don’t run sales like this all too often, so if you’ve been waiting, now is the perfect time to pick it up and jump back into the world of the Territories. Links to purchase below.
Remember the first two books: The Stars Were Rightand Old Broken Road, are also on sale for 99¢. They too will return to their regular pricing starting tomorrow. That means you can get all three for under three dollars!
Already read the books? Why not leave me a review on Amazon or on Goodreads, and don’t forget to tell all your friends. Word of mouth helps me out and keeps me writing.
It’s happened, eBook copies of Red Litten World—the third installment of the Bell Forging Cycle—are finally on sale. From today through January 6th, 2018 you can get your DRM-free copies for only 99¢ from your favorite eBook retailer. Hot damn! That’s a saving of five dollars. You can get a book, and you’ll still be able to afford lunch or a fancy coffee. Click any of the links below to purchase.
But wait, there’s more. Since this is Red Litten World’s first sale, I figured I’d triple the savings and offer ebooks of The Stars Were Right and Old Broken Road for 99¢ as well! That means right now you can get all three books for less than three dollars. That’s twelve bucks back in your pocket! The new year is coming so why not celebrate with some new books?

Red Litten World is out now! The misadventures of Waldo Bell continue. (Links to purchase below.) I’m so excited to be taking everyone from the high deserts of the Territories and back into the claustrophobic corridors and grungy warrens of Lovat. I think longtime readers will find a lot to enjoy Red Litten World, and new readers will have a blast learning about the megalopolis and its strange inhabitants and cultures. Setting out, the goal was to write something that felt both familiar but kept things fascinating. Thankfully, Lovat is a rich enough setting that I could write a book every year for a lifetime and still not explore every corner of the city.
For those who prefer paperbacks, you can pick up Red Litten World from any of the links below. If you’re looking for signed copies, I sell them through my online store for $15 (plus shipping). They look awesome.
For those eBook readers, you can pick up an eBook of Red Litten World from any of the following platforms. (Nook always trails a bit, but the book should be up there in the next few days.) [Update: Nook is live!] Is there a platform you prefer that I don’t currently support? Feel free to email me and let me know, I’d love to get my books onto your favorite.
Make sure you add Red Litten World to your currently-reading list on Goodreads, and please when you’re finished, leave a review. I can blog and tweet and shout from my roof, but it’s my readers that make all the difference when it comes to spreading the word.
I hope you enjoy Red Litten World, everyone. Welcome back to Lovat.
We’re drawing closer and closer to the launch of Red Litten World on October 6th, 2015—less than a month!—and as of today there are more ways for you to preorder the eBook and have it arrive on your reader on launch day.
Currently Available for Preorder
Here’re the current channels where Red Litten World can be preordered.
These are the locations where you can look at Red Litten World but not actually preorder it. I guess you can like look at it longingly or something. I do wish there was a way to do it through my store, but as of now there are no options for preorders. You can order a sweet Bell Caravans patch, though!
Yeah, there’s no link for Nook. Which is a bummer because I know I have a bunch of readers who use the Nook platform. (Sales-wise, it’s my second highest channel.) I apologize to my fans who read on Nook. This is in Barnes & Nobles court and based on their unchanging backend this probably won’t be resolved anytime soon. That said, Red Litten World will still arrive for Nook readers on October 6th, it just won’t be all magical and auto-delivered.
So those are the open channels. It’s thrilling to see everyone’s excitement. Thank you all for your emails and notes of encouragement. I’m looking forward to taking you back to Lovat. In the meantime, make sure you add Red Litten World to your to-read list on Goodreads. And, if you haven’t, please go and leave an honest review for the previous books in the series: The Stars Were Rightand Old Broken Road. Reviews really help me and your fellow readers out. Thanks!
