We’re GO for launch!

Sleeper Protocol - Hi-Res-Final copy

We’re GO for launch.

Wow, it’s here. At the stroke of midnight, my debut novel, SLEEPER PROTOCOL, will be available for purchase. As mentioned on my website, the ebook is available on all ebook platforms but will be sold at a discounted price of $2.99 on Amazon for tomorrow (January 5th) only. The print versions will be available for sale in late February. When they are ready, I will let you know. My offer stands that I will sign and send back (at my expense) any copy of SLEEPER PROTOCOL sent to me. It’s the least I can do. And, an audio version is coming, too.

Here are the links by vendor:

If you purchase the book, you have my thanks. I sincerely could not have imagined the outpouring of support I have received in this endeavor. But, if I could, I’d ask for a little more help.

Making a book “successful” has a lot of different meanings these days. With search engine optimization and algorithms for everything, it’s hard to know what may work tomorrow. So I have a simple request. If you liked the book, do two things: 1. Tell a friend about it. 2. Go back to where you purchased it and leave a ranking / review. It doesn’t have to be much more than a few lines – maybe 100 words. Those two things will help push Sleeper Protocol into the hands of more readers.

Thank you to Red Adept Publishing for taking a chance on this story and for introducing me to a family of fellow authors who support and inspire each other every day. And, thank you for reading this and being a part of this journey, too. There are more stories to tell, and we’ll write them together.


Sleeper Protocol: Release Specifics!

Several people have asked, so here are the specifics for the launch of Sleeper Protocol.

Ebooks:  The release date is January 5th, 2016.  As of right now the book is available for pre-order at Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, and iTunes.

Release special:  For release day, my publisher has lowered the price of the book to $2.99 exclusively at Amazon.  From now until January 6th, you can order the book at the lower price before it returns to $5.99.

Print Version:  For review purposes, the book will not be available in print version until the end of February.  As there is always an exception to every rule, I will have copies with me to sell at COSine in Colorado Springs in late January, 2016.  The print copy will sell for $15.99.

Book Launch Party:  We are in the process of scheduling a launch party in conjunction with a local craft brewery.  More details to come, but if you’re local, this will be another way to pick up a print version of the book.  I’m also working with the local Barnes and Nobles and the smaller independent bookstores in the Denver area to have Sleeper Protocol on their shelves.

Very exciting things are happening.  Six days to go!
