Devil's Wake is here!

I know that a number of readers of this blog are specifically fans of my SF work.   So I'll speak to  you as fans--DEVIL'S WAKE is the beginning of a new saga, the first true child of my creative marriage with Tananarive Due.   We have some serious fun down the road, but it's all dependent on the success of the first book.  So if you like the idea of experiencing the Zombie Apocalypse through my twisted mind, here are some ways you can help speed up the Brain Train...

•    Give the book to relatives, friends and others as a gift.
    •    Email everyone you can with this message: Zombie lovers, this one's for you! Devil's Wake is a story of courage, friendship and survival in the wake of an unthinkable outbreak, suitable for adults and older teens.
    •    Share how the book gripped you on your blogs, Twitter, Facebook and on forums and in discussion groups.
    •    Recommend us to anyone they know in the media, such as a radio or TV producer, editor, journalist or columnist.
    •    Review the book on and
    •    Participate in discussions about the book on our Facebook fan page:
    •    Put a promotional message and/or book cover on your website.
    •    Buy multiple copies and donate them to prisons, shelters, schools, churches, youth clubs or any other groups where people in need could benefit.

Going to the bookstore right now!

I'm afraid I don't do much of the internet stuff you're talking about, but here's a suggestion that might increase your Amazon sales a teeny bit... For most of your books' listings, you can click on your name and listings for most of your books - (24)- come up for the reader to peruse and consider buying. But Moon Maze Game and Secret of Black Ship Island don't, which means that a reader who has just discovered you and is looking for your books won't know those two exist. You might want to get Amazon to fix that because presumably more copies would be sold (especially if the searcher's already read Dream Park, etc.) if they were more conspicuous.

I do not drop many reѕponsеs, howеveг after гeаding a ton of remarκs on "Devil's Wake is here!".
I do have some quеstiοns fοr уou
if уou don't mind. Could it be just me or do a few of the comments come across like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on other online social sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of your public pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
