It has been a whirl wind of a week. Midnight editing, blogging, twittering, facebooking, formatting, and (when time allowed) writing has kept me from much of a social life. Social life not internet related.
My novel, For Nothing hit the e-market this weekend. The Kindle, the Nook, and all other e-readers should be carrying For Nothing. The e-reader version is priced very cheap at just $0.99 and I figure that is fair for people taking a chance on an unknown product. I have sold close to thirty copies so whoever is buying my novel, thank you.
I hope it's not my Dad buying one every day. My mom doesn't know how to use a computer so I am safe there until the print version comes out.
As the readership increases, I will experiment with raising the price to $2.99. So the point is, jump on the bandwagon now and save a couple bucks. After all it is the best crime novel in the world. The best mafia crime novel in the world ever written...by Nicholas Denmon.
As a side note, I have "America's #1 crime novel" in my twitter heading, fan page, etc; and one gentleman (who also writes crime novels) took issue with it. Here is his quote:

I think touting your book as "America’s #1 crime novel” is way over the top. Saying it doesn't make it so.
Saying it doesn't make it so, unless it is a matter of opinion. I gave my Dad a mug for Father's Day once (or was it my brother? Never mind that now) that said, "#1 Dad". That was #1 in the whole world too, not just America. I didn't get a letter from some Dad across the way disputing my claim. Sure there might be a better Dad out there, unlikely but possible. But it doesn't really matter does it? I think he is, and I am well within my right to call him, #1. So it goes with my novel. I believe it is America's #1 crime novel ever written...by Nicholas Denmon.
I explained to the gentleman that I didn't claim that it was America's #1 bestseller. I also explained that it was clearly a way to market it and have some fun. He backed off and now we are Facebook friends. So it's official.
The print edition is available this weekend. When I have the link I will post it here, on Facebook, and Twitter, and ...well you get the point. Starting Saturday or Sunday, I will be getting back to work on my trilogy and outlining the sequel to For Nothing, America's #1 Crime Novel...by Nicholas Denmon.
