Guys: I asked you to help me reach 25 pre-orders for The Armageddon Countdown, and you didn’t let me down! Right now we have 26 pre-orders, which puts us in 7th place in the Geek & Sundry Hard Science Fiction contest. But we still have a ways to go. Only the novels with the three most pre-orders will be selected for publication. At the moment, that means we would need about 110 more people to agree to pre-order the book to get us to third place. With 26 readers, that means if each person can convince 5 friends to buy the book, we’re in.
At which point, you get to brag to people that you are close personal friends with a published novelist. And when The Armageddon Countdown is made into a movie staring Jennifer Lawrence, Peter Dinklage, and James McAvoy, you’ll be able to say that the writer invited you to hang out with the cast on set.
Don’t think of it as helping out a friend. Think of it as an investment in future awesomeness and Peter Dinklage’s acting career.
To reward everyone for reaching our first milestone of 25 readers, I am releasing the second chapter of The Armageddon Countdown today. I’m excited to hear what you guys think, so please give me any feedback on the new chapter, good, bad, or indifferent.
Our next milestone is to reach 50 readers. That will put us in 5th place and within striking distance of the final three! I’ll release the third chapter once we hit 50 readers, so if you want to know what happens next, make sure to promote the hell out of this thing.
Thank you, everyone.
Hey everyone, thanks for all the support. We’re almost in the top 10!! If 25 people pre-order the book, I’ll release the second chapter!
