A guy reads Twilight by Stephenie Meyer (2009-2011)

The Last Time For A Long Time

Usually, I keep outside news to the Notes at the end of my posts, but something enormous just happened this weekend. I promise, this is the last post about my book on my Twilight site for a very long time.

Somehow, pre-orders for BRAN HAMBRIC: THE FARFIELD CURSE have opened an entire month early. This morning, I got as high as the top 6,000 books on Amazon.com, and have fluctuated up and down since (yes, I obsessively check nearly every hour :P). You are all amazing. Most of my debut writer friends tell me they started out in the 1 or 2 millions, and I know it’s you people who read my blogs that started the pre-orders that high.

(Links to other retailers forthcoming)

Due to this flurry of preparation I am physically exhausted and my eyes are burning (as you can probably tell in the following video) which is why I haven’t read the next Breaking Dawn chapter. But if you had intentions of pre-ordering my book, you can visit this page (despite the Amazon listing saying it’s for 9-12, I wrote it for 11 and up).  As the video will tell you, I certainly don’t expect you to buy it just because I say so, and I’m offering the first 4 chapters (50 pages) for free so you can have a good-sized sample first.

If you do decide to pre-order my novel, I would like to thank you sincerely, since you’re really investing in my dream 😀

(I now return you to your regular programming 😛 )

ADDED: People YOU ARE AMAZING: my book jumped from #12,000 on Amazon all the way to #1,130 in THREE HOURS!!!!!!!! If it gets past #1,000 by 10 PM CST, I will do a BLOGTV show TONIGHT.

ADDED: WOW WOW WOW. In just hours, the book jumped from #12,000 all the way to #638!!!! I’m keeping my promise, and going do a live BlogTV show RIGHT NOW starting at 9:30 PM CST at www.blogtv.com/people/kalebnation THERE WILL BE PRIZES AS MY THANKS!

ADDED: The book went all the way up to #350 last night. Seriously people, you are driving me crazy with joy 😀 . Thanks SO much for starting this off so amazingly. I PROMISE, I’ll have another real TG post very soon!
