Friday the 13th eBook Launch!

Book 1 Cover KDP2Let the Official eLaunch Begin!

I’ve spent the last few weeks planning the official Kindle eLaunch of A Brief Stay at Earth Human Camp. There’s a lot going on in my world at the moment! Fair warning: If you are connected to me on social media, you are going to see quite a bit of me this week!

But before I go into the details, let me ask you this: Do you think I’m courting bad luck (or maybe just a little crazy) for scheduling an ebook launch on Friday the 13th?

My “Lucky” Friday the 13th

Fear not! I was born on a 13th (3/13, to be exact) — in a blizzard, but that’s another story — so I’ve always felt the need to own these so-called unlucky Fridays. In fact, I like to call on 13s wherever and whenever possible, then dare bad luck to land on my doorstep! From my point of view, the availability of a Friday the 13th for my ebook launch was a harbinger of good luck!

I know I’m not alone in this relationship to 13s. If you feel this way too, please tell me why in the comments.

Kindle Countdown Deal

So right, back to the launch! I’m celebrating this “official” moment with a Kindle Countdown Deal. If you haven’t yet shopped one of these, at 11 AM EST tomorrow, Friday the 13th, A Brief Stay at Earth Human Camp will start at the deeply discounted price of $.99, then across a week will gradually climb back up to its original list price. The thinking? The sooner you buy, the more you save. My Amazon Book Page

KND Kids Corner

A Brief Stay at Earth Human Camp will also be featured on Kindle Nation Daily’s “Kids Corner” this week — a special part of the Kindle-book website that is reserved exclusively for children’s, middle-grade, and young adult ebooks. Kids Corner is a real asset to both parents of young readers and the indie authors who write for them. If you haven’t seen it, check it out: KND Kids Corner. If you’re already a KND subscriber, you may see my book in your KND and Book Gorilla emails.

Sharing the Love

A major goal of my elaunch is to introduce as many readers as possible to A Brief Stay at Earth Human Camp. To do that, I plan to share information about the book and the Kindle Countdown Deal on social media — mostly Facebook and Twitter — plus I’ll be taking reader’s questions on GoodReads.com.

If any of you feels the urge to help me by sharing or retweeting my posts when you see them — or by stopping by at GoodReads to post a question — I give you my heartfelt thanks in advance! And who knows, maybe a little of my lucky 13 status will rub off on you too!

Please don’t go without posting a comment for me! I love hearing from readers and writers alike.
