Dark Continents Publishing has released Let It Bleed in a second edition format, available in both e-book and softcover format.
Please take a moment and take a chance on my controversial little novel – it is dark, engaging, full of big words and big ideas. Dark Continents has had Let It Bleed on the KDP Select program for the first three months of its life, but as of September 2012 it will be transitioning over to other purchasing sites such as Barnes and Noble.
Want to know how to help a struggling author (like myself) get their novel into local bookstores? Don’t use Amazon. Go to your nearest independent book publisher and do a special order request that they order Let It Bleed for you. Either use the title, my name, or the ISBN #978-0983160304
Alternatively, if you want to really step up and help make a difference, go to the Amazon site and leave a review of Let It Bleed. If you’ve never left a review before, don’t be intimidated — it is really easy. Just use your regular login information, and then go to the book page on Amazon and do the following three things:
1) “LIKE” at the top of the page
2) Scroll down towards the bottom of the page and check that you are in agreement with the “tags”. If you can think of a great tag that is not currently represented, please feel free to add.
3) In the center of the page, there is the ability to “write a review”. There appears to be no maximum to the number of words one can utilize to either like or not like a novel (OH! But I hope you like mine!), but the minimum number of words is 25. Even saying a quick “this was my favorite part” is helpful and greatly appreciated.
Every single author I know would love this treatment, not just me.
Get out there – shop and comment. Especially if you’ve been the recipient of a free copy. Do the author a favor and pay it forward!
