It is with great pleasure that I am able to announce that you can now preorder the ebook version of THE GENUINE, IMITATION, PLASTIC KIDNAPPING! I'm really, really excited about this! Trade paperback isn't yet available for preorder sales, but should be shortly.
This is my favorite all-time book to have written. In fact, I'm writing a sequel to it right now just because I like these characters so much and they have a lot more trouble to get into.
Being able to offer prepublication sales on Amazon is a truly big deal for smaller, independent publishers. It presents an opportunity to compete with the "big boys" on a much more level playing field. I'm hoping that a lot of folks preorder because what happens on the official day of publication is that all the prepub sales are calculated at that time and what that means is that the book begins with a number of sales--hopefully a significant number!--which means it will open on top or close to the top of the best seller lists. And that, leads to even more significant sales, as it gives the novel a lot more publicity out of the gate.
I feel this is a laugh-out-loud book and the early blurbs it's getting from respected writers are showing they feel the same way also. Here's some of the blurbs we've been graciously given for it:
Anyway, infomercial over... please click on the cover photo if you want to place a preorder. And, if you want to wait for the trade paperbook version, just keep checking with Amazon until it appears which it should, shortly. It's a really attractive cover that I think you'll be proud to be seen with on the subway...
P.S. Just got an early review on crime novelist Liam Sweeny's blog (click here).
