Well that’s a bit embarrassing.
Having flooded my mailing list, and social media accounts of friends and family just three days ago with an April release date, I am now proud to let you know that ‘The eBay Killers’ went live and is available for purchase TODAY!
If you’re impatient, you can click here and go straight to the sales page and all the details for how to but either in eBook or hard copy format.
If you’re even more impatient that, here’s the links straight to the publishers:
- Kindle (or search for ‘The eBay Killers’ straight from your Kindle)
- iBooks: search for ‘The eBay Killers’ direct from iBooks app on any Mac device
- Smashwords Bookstore: the World’s Largest distributor on indie books
- Barnes and Noble
- Amazon (Hardcopy – there are a range of delivery options)
So, what’s the story about?
Without giving too much away, this is the brief that went up to Amazon and iBooks this morning:
Mike Winters dreamed of escaping his dead-end job and living a peaceful life by the beach. His decision to start an online business unwittingly draws him into the dark world of international cyber-crime with explosive and deadly consequences.
The eBay Killers is a rollicking tale of young love, assassins, suburban swingers, Interpol, bashings, AC/DC, the Australian Federal Police, Captain America, bikers, strip clubs, a stuffed fox named Tyler and the transformation of a leafy Canberra suburb into a war zone.
How did I get it published so fast?
Thank god for the internet is all I can say. It has enabled indie authors like myself to leap-frog the traditional path of pitching a publisher for a book deal. Through a publishing group called Smashwords, as well as the big dog Amazon, I have been able to publish and hit a global market quite easily. There was a bit of messing around with graphics and formatting.
So what now?
I’m on the marketing trail and pushing the book both online and in person.
As a part of the publishing process, I will be having a print run done for book store distribution and the inevitable boozy book launch, which will happen in April.
I’ve started work on the follow-up book on the life and times of Mike Winters, but you will need to read The eBay Killers first to know what in the hell is going on.
Thanks for your understanding for getting hit twice in a week, I think you will love The eBay Killers as much as I did writing it.
I wrote it once in the dedication and I’ll say it again, I love you my beautiful wife. Thank you for all your support and encouragement in writing and finishing The eBay Killers.
