As part of the 2012 ABNA process, Amazon is providing a product page for each contestant advancing to the Quarterfinals! It can be found here:
The page allows anyone with an Amazon account to download the first 5,000 words (or so) of “Brothers In Darkness” for FREE!!! If you don’t have a Kindle, no worries! This Amazon link takes you to a variety of free Kindle Apps allowing you to download and read it on multiple platforms (PC, Mac, etc). For those having previously read the book, the excerpt ends at a great spot: just as Lucas takes the Ring!
To any and all who participate in this free process, your help is greatly appreciated!! The “likes”, the downloads and the positive ratings and reviews are all very kind. The positive reception and feedback I’ve been getting has been amazing, and has meant a lot.
After trying out the sample, I hope readers are interested in checking out the whole book! It’s currently available via Amazon here: Brothers In Darkness.
In a few weeks I’ll get a review from Publisher’s Weekly!! If “Brothers In Darkness” is chosen for the Semi-Finals, it will be read and considered by editors at Penguin books. Actually getting my manuscript into the hands of a Penguin editor is easier said than done, and having an opportunity for high level industry feedback and exposure could be huge!!!
Thank you all for your support and help in making this happen!!!!!!
