As some of you may or may not know, pre-orders of a book are incredibly important. They not only indicate to the publisher that there’s enthusiasm for the book, which means they then put more marketing money into it (that then leads to more sales, and so on), but pre-orders count toward the first week of sales after the book is released. In other words, this is one of the best shots a book has to hit the bestseller lists, with (hopefully) months and months of pre-orders stacked into one week. But, of course, you still have to get a decent number of pre-orders for this to happen!
With that in mind, Michael and I would be SO. IMMENSELY. APPRECIATIVE if you would pre-order SHADOW RUN between now and our release date of March 21st, 2017. Hardback sales are the best for us, but if ebooks are your jam, that’s great too. So, here are a few pre-order links, along with a giant PLEASE and THANK YOU and YOU ARE THE BEST:
Firefly meets Dune in this action-packed sci-fi adventure about a close-knit, found family of a crew navigating a galaxy of political intrigue and resource-driven power games.
Nev has just joined the crew of the starship Kaitan Heritage as the cargo loader. His captain, Qole, is the youngest-ever person to command her own ship, but she brooks no argument from her crew of orphans, fugitives, and con men. Nev can’t resist her, even if her ship is an antique.
As for Nev, he’s a prince, in hiding on the ship. He believes Qole holds the key to changing galactic civilization, and when her cooperation proves difficult to obtain, Nev resolves to get her to his home planet by any means necessary.
But before they know it, a rival royal family is after Qole too, and they’re more interested in stealing her abilities than in keeping her alive.
Nev’s mission to manipulate Qole becomes one to save her, and to survive, she’ll have to trust her would-be kidnapper. He may be royalty, but Qole is discovering a deep reservoir of power–and stars have mercy on whoever tries to hurt her ship or her crew.
Hope you enjoy reading it as much as Michael and I enjoyed writing it!
