Rusty Webb had a lot to do with that, since he did the cover art. The very spectacular cover art, I might add. Actually, not might add, because I did add it. I hope at least some of you will decide to pick it up and try it out. Currently, it's available through CreateSpace for $14.99 and for the Kindle for $2.99. You know, $2.99 isn't much. I'll have it set up for the Nook, soon, and I'm going to look at Smashwords, although I haven't used them before, so I haven't made any decisions about it, yet. Oh, and Goodreads. Which I'm on, but I only just learned I can sell through there, too, so I have to work that out. Autographed copies can also be available directly through me if you are PayPal capable. The book's supposed to be available through Amazon itself, also, but, for some reason, it's not showing up, yet. >shrug< It's better if you buy the physical copy through CreateSpace, anyway.
[Edit: The House on the Corner is, now, also available on the Nook for $2.99!]
Here's what I need from you guys... yeah, yeah, I know, but, really, there is something I need from you. I mean, other than just buying the book. It would be great to get some reviews. Preferably good reviews. :) Good reviews would be awesome. Especially on Amazon. So, yeah, this is what I'm asking: if you buy the book, read the book, like the book, please review the book. On your blogs would be great, but posting on Amazon and Goodreads would be awesome. Really awesome. Now, if you don't like the book, well... I'm not going to say don't review it. Because, you know, if you hate it and think it's the worst piece of crap ever written, it would be kind of wrong to just keep that to yourself. But I'm pretty sure it's not that bad. Of course, I'm biased. I mean, it's not Tolkien, but it's better than... well, I won't name names, but it's better than a lot of the traditionally published stuff out there right now. By "a lot", I might mean most.
Okay, I'll (mostly) be finished talking about The House on the Corner (for the moment).
As some of you might know, there's this blogfest thing going on. You know, this one:
Charlotte, the creepiest doll in the world. Check it out. I dare you.
And, now, I'm supposed to pass this one on to 5 other blogs with fewer than 200 followers and encourage them to do the same. So...
1. Has to be Rusty Webb. Even if he hadn't just done the cover art for my book, he'd be my pick for top slot. He always (well, pretty much always) has something interesting to say, even when he does things like title his posts "Most Boring Post Ever." And, really, he's just an all around nice guy who actually encourages dialogue in his comments.
2. Because she has a blog that is always full of useful information shared with excellent writing on the side, Alyssia Kirkhart over at Small World, Big Dreams. Really, her following does not reflect the quality of her blog.
3. Because she shares her Magic Eyes, Amanda Leigh Cowley. You'll have to stop by her place on the web to see what I mean.
And, well, actually, that's gonna be it. Everyone else I would award this to either already received it or has more than 200 followers. However, if I find 2 more blogs I think are deserving during the blogfest, I'll pass it on in a belated fashion.
That's it for me... for now, at least.
