You asked for it: Yesterday Road now available in paperback!

This is the kind of news flash I like to see! Kevin Brennan’s Yesterday Road is now available as a paperback! Yesterday Road is where I fell in love with Kevin’s writing. For a hint as to why I fell in love with his writing, read my review: https://1writeway.com/2013/10/22/a-traditional-kind-of-book-review-yesterday-road/. But even better than that, read Yesterday Road for yourself: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/172876937X/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i7.
You’re welcome, readers 🙂

WHAT THE HELL

Yes, I’m delighted to announce that you can now display Yesterday Road, my first indie novel, on your bookshelf. Check out the paperback edition over at Amazon.

When I first decided to dabble in self-publishing, I decided to go strictly ebook. Just testing the waters. And it worked well for Yesterday Road, because I could focus on the ebook in terms of marketing and building my so-called brand. It helped me learn the ropes. I was glad I did it that way, because I was pretty intimidated by the whole thing, and keeping it as simple as I could made it all seem doable.

For my next two books, though–Occasional Soulmates and Town Father–I went ahead and had paperbacks made. Both of them turned out beautifully, thanks to covers and interior design done by the incomparable Max Scratchmann, Edinburgh’s favorite idiosyncratic artist and guerrilla poet…

Yesterday Road for 99 cents? You betta believe it, baby!

I’ve got two things to say to my blogging, reading friends: (1) If you haven’t already purchased Kevin Brennan’s Yesterday Road, then you better do it now while it’s available for a mere 99 cents; (2) If you’ve read YR, then leave a review on Amazon. Short and sweet as the man says, that’s all you need to do. So step up, people! (Pretty please!)

That’s right, I’m running a summer sale on Yesterday Road, and it’s now live on Amazon. (The other retailers will follow soon.)

The sale runs through 6/27, but it doesn’t begin officially till next Friday. You, my devoted readers here at What The Hell, get first crack, so if you’ve been waiting for that perfect price point and you have a spare dollar in your virtual coin pouch, it’s time to pull the trigger.

This is also the last promotion I’ll be doing for YR before the publication of Wish I Were Here in September. After 6/27, the price returns to $4.99.

If you do take the plunge, I’d also appreciate a brief review on Amazon. I’m stuck at 24, and I’ve encountered recently at least one promotional outfit that requires 25 reviews. Short and sweet is welcome.

Finally, a big thanks to Phillip McCollum, who stepped up…

Let’s make a deal — Yesterday Road is on sale!

Take advantage of this sale if you haven’t already purchased Yesterday Road! It’s a wonderful novel about memory (or the lack of it), the desire to forget, and the urge to connect. The main characters–Jack, Joe, and Ida–will live with you long after you’ve finished the book, and you’ll be glad for that. So go on and pick up a copy!

I thought I’d tip off readers of the blog to a promotion that I’m running through April 7. Officially it starts on 4/1, with a listing on Ereader News Today and a few other daily lists, but I wanted all y’all to have a crack at it sooner than later — if you haven’t already bought the book, that is.

Grab it at Amazon here.

The other retail outlets are listed here, but I’m not sure when the price cut will appear at each of them. Amazon is already live.

A Different Kind of Book Review: Parts Unknown by Kevin Brennan

This book review, if you will, is an excerpt from one of my (now many) novels in progress.  *** Part of Melissa’s job at The Antiquarian was to close up the bookstore at 9 PM promptly.  She didn’t always though and often times because she was lost in reading.  If there were still customers in… Continue reading A Different Kind of Book Review: Parts Unknown by Kevin Brennan
