(Air Born Reading/Signing at Third Place Books)
First, I want to say thank you to everyone who attended my first official book reading and signing event at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park. This was a huge success and a great opportunity to meet many of the Air Born fans and readers. Plus, the Q&A session was very interesting, since I had no idea what anyone was going to ask.
The next reading & signing event will be on December 10th, at 2pm, at The Neverending Bookshop in Bothell, WA. I look forward to seeing you there.
I'm overwhelmed by the fantastic reviews Air Born is receiving. I admit to being very anxious prior to the arrival of the first review on Amazon. But, I'm now very happy to say the average rating on the reviews is 4.8. Not too shabby for my first full length fiction novel.
If you don't mind reading some spoilers, this review on Goodreads by Ines Ninous is amazing. It's very detailed and she confirms the emotions and feelings I was trying to get across in the story and the characters. Plus, she raises the questions everyone else is asking about for the next book. Woot.
The latest review posted to Amazon:
Air Born is real
on November 17, 2016
Air Born captures your youthful imagination by touching on one of the most ancient desires- the desire to fly. It does this in an original and eloquent way while pulling in factual context from the pacific northwest, ancient Egypt, and the software development industry. The story feels real and the words paint a beautiful picture of a world where human flight is possible. Tim has really touched on something with this story and I hope that one day I'll be able to see Air Born, the movie, in theaters.
Wow. Movie deal would be nice!
This selfie is proof that Air Born has truly gone international. This is Shau Keung from the UK. He heard about my reading event at Third Place Books, ordered the book, and posted this a few days later. I'm looking forward to seeing his review.
Promotions & Marketing
So much is going on, it's hard to keep track of it all. Air Born now has a page on Hometown Reads for Seattle.
A promotion is starting on Nov. 22nd for Zegin's Infection. The Kindle ebook will be FREE for 5 days only. Yes, I said free! I'm actually surprised at the renewed interest in the Zegin stories since Air Born came out. This will generate some new interest and hopefully will draw some attention to Air Born as well.
And saving the best for last, the Kindle edition of Air Born will be half price beginning on Nov. 22nd for 7 days only. Aside from being promoted on Amazon, a special promotion will be advertised on GoodKindles.net - a very popular site for Kindle book readers. They will also be hosting an Author's page for me.
That's the latest from the exploits of a night writer for now. Thank you again for all your support and comments. I greatly appreciate it.
