Hello everyone,

Just wanted to let you all know that as of midnight last night, I'm officially a published author.  This is a very exciting time for me, so I admit I haven't been playing as much as I'd like to.  All the same, if you're interested, here are the details:

 

Kindle version: http://www.amazon.com/Last-House-Daniel-Beers-ebook/dp/B00NX26BSW/

Print version: http://www.amazon.com/The-Last-House-Daniel-Beers/dp/1629291560/

All other versions: http://www.damnationbooks.com/book.php?isbn=9781629291550

 

Tell your friends!  I have absolutely no other marketing campaigns beyond word of mouth.

Congratulations Spanyell !

Curious as I am a writer myself, How many pages did you make per chapter ?. And how many chapters do you have ?

Congradulations!  I know it takes a lot to get there.  I've been trying for years, but not quite managing it.  =D

Thanks all!  I really appreciate your support.  It's so tough out there and every little bit helps!

 

@Lord Melchom, I think there are 63 chapters in my book.  That being said, I end the chapter when the thought is done.  Some are longer than others.  There's no real right or wrong way.  I actually fought with my publishing company to even number the chapters, as I didn't think that the book needed them.  They won out of course ;)

 

@Briseadh, I feel you, believe me.  I've spent many a year trying to get anyone to even read my work.  Keep trying, keep writing.

Congrats Spanyell! Excellent work!  I know it's a long road to get published. My wife (Tenebrae) is finishing up her third book right now, and is still trying to get published.

Well made a huge mistake to start reading this book, now cant put it down, other book I was reading is on the back burner.  I am really enjoying the read, found myself daydreaming of it in a movie version, who would play the parts :).  Just wanted to thank you for sharing this with us.

@HeavyArtillery - I found the publishing company based on the type of book I was looking for.  Most of the larger ones require an agent and I figured I'd start small.

@Nona - I am honored you wanted to read my book over another!  Tell your friends! I have no other marketing plan other than the people I know.

 

@Everyone else - Thank you all, truly!  Means a lot to me that this family is so receptive to each other!

Spanyell,   I have to say if Nona gives the thumbs up on your book it is definitely something everyone should think about.  She is quite the reader and also a pretty stiff critic of things that she doesn't like, if Nona likes it thats GOOD!

I have finished the book, it in no way I was ever disappointed in it.  Having it on my kindle meant I could take it with me any where I went, reading it on my iphone.   Your first, middle, end content were great, and the added twists enhanced the book very much.  This book reminded me in many ways of the early works of Stephen King, I encourage you to continue your writing, look forward to your next book.
