HTDC will be free on Amazon for the next three days (8-10 August). This is the last time it will be available for free, as I’m about to opt out of Amazon’s KDP select program. If you haven’t got your copy yet, this is your last chance to get it for free.
For a limited time, you can get How To Disappear Completely for only 99 cents!
Still not convinced? Here are some things people have been saying about HTDC:
“Extremely well written and anyone who enjoys twisted, confusing and disturbing imagery will also enjoy it.”
“I was intrigued from the very first chapter and still guessing until the very last one. I was thoroughly captivated by the deliciously dark worlds of Greenwood and Bassisha and their strange inhabitants.”
“The inspiration for fantasy is often too personal to have meaning for anyone other than the writer. In this case however the characters are superbly drawn. Their dilemmas are convincing, despite the bizarre setting.”
So, what are you waiting for?
How To Disappear Completely is FREE all weekend long!
Now is the perfect opportunity to give this little tale of teenage angst falling down the rabbit hole a try.
It’s only been a few days since I uploaded my novel to Amazon (you can buy it HERE) but already I’m very happy with how it’s going.
I thought it would be scary, putting my little heart and soul out there for anyone to download, but I actually feel incredibly at ease. It’s only in hindsight that I see how miserable the editing process had made me. Now that the book is out there, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. The misery was worth it though; I’m confident I have put out my best possible product.
Everyone has been very supportive. Friends have been ferociously reblogging, retweeting and facebooking. Entire workplaces have been inundated with emails. I’m pretty sure half the Queensland Government has been notified through their various departments now. Thanks everyone!
I’m going to focus on getting reviews for now. But I only want REAL reviews. I’ve been hearing some awful accounts of indie authors creating multiple fake accounts in order to give themselves a heap of five star reviews. I’ve also seen authors vilify reviewers who have given them a negative review. I don’t want to take part in any of this bullshit. You are allowed to dislike my book. You can even hate it if that’s how you truly feel. I’m prepared to take the good with the bad and I’m not going to embarrass myself by getting in a huff about it.
It’s going to be a long and rather slow road, and I won’t be quitting my day job any time soon. But I knew it would be like this. I’ve never really expected to be a best seller. What I would like, though, is a little bit of cult status. I would love this book to really mean something to people, even if it’s not many people. I want people to connect with it, to see themselves in it, and take comfort in the knowledge that they are not alone.
And then I want them to cosplay as my characters at conventions and write dirty fan fiction!
How To Disappear Completely is now available to purchase from Amazon.
Thank you so much to everyone who has followed the blog, tweeted and facebooked with me over the past few months. Your support has been wonderful. As an indie author, I don’t have the benefit of a publicist or marketing team, so every like, retweet and reblog from you guys is a great help and I really appreciate it.
If you enjoy the book (or even if you didn’t but have something interesting to say about it anyway), please consider leaving a review, either on Amazon, Goodreads, or on your own personal blog. Word of mouth is worth it’s weight in gold, and the more people are talking about HTDC, the more likely it is to succeed.
Thanks again. I hope you enjoy your trip down the trapdoor to the darkest corners of your mind.
With the grand launch of HTDC only five days away, I thought I would do a little bit of a guide so everyone can easily buy a copy on May 20.
Presenting: How To Download How To Disappear Completely, Completely (HTDHTDCC).
At this stage, HTDC will be available as an Kindle ebook exclusively from Amazon. You’ll be able to buy it from any Amazon website (Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, Amazon.es, and Amazon.it).
It will cost you only $2.99 U.S, and if you’re an Amazon Prime member you will be able to rent it for free!
If you don’t have a Kindle ereader, don’t worry! There are free Kindle apps for iPads, iPhones and Android phones. If you don’t have any of these, you can download Kindle for PC for free, so you can read HTDC directly on your computer.
So, there you have it. One place to buy it, lots of ways to read it!
After eight years, countless edits, one failed publisher and numerous mental breakdowns, How To Disappear Completely is finally complete. In two weeks time, it will be available on Amazon for the whole world to read, and it will only cost you $2.99.
I am both elated and absolutely terrified.
From the moment this book is uploaded, it will cease to be mine. It will belong to the reader. My intended meaning will become irrelevant. Instead, it will take on new meanings for each person who reads it. I hope it will mean something very special to them. But I cannot control that. Some people will dislike it, maybe even hate it. I cannot control that either.
As I wait for May 20 to roll around, I’ll begin sending out press releases and review copies. If you would like a free copy to review on your blog, Goodreads or Amazon, send me an email at email@example.com.
For now, I’m going to sit back and enjoy not editing anything for the first time in about six months. I might even leave the house…
