This was the reaction when I told people I wanted to write a book about an outlaw who discovers a lost world entrance in the wild frontier of the Wyoming Territories…. And that there was dinosaurs in it:
This was the reaction when I told people I’d finished the book and people began to read and critique it:
This was how I felt when I finished the publication process:
And this is how I feel today, with the book finally released on Amazon.
So look at this! Here it is in all it’s glory! Woop!
Jedidiah Huckleberry Smith spent his entire life searching for the raider who mutilated him as a child. Finally, giving up on a trail long grown cold, he leaves his outlaw past behind and starts over in a remote town in Wyoming.
One dark night his ranch is attacked by a mysterious and ferocious beast from a world lost to time. Only Jedidiah’s savagery and skills save him.
Now, teaming up with a beautiful but naïve paleontologist, they stand between his adopted town and its destruction by an army of barbaric prehistoric apes and dinosaurs. But Jed’s past has come back to haunt him. The man he searched for is discovered in a position of power, and Jed must choose…
Revenge for his past, or the salvation of strangers.
Either way, bullets will fly, and blood will be spilled.
If you buy it, I’d love you forever if you leave an Amazon or Goodreads review. Even a one sentence that says, “This book doesn’t suck” means a lot and helps sell more books in the future. (How many times have you looked at a book with no or few reviews and passed on it because no one else risked reading it first? I know I have.)
And since the sequel is already completed, well – the more this one sells the more likely the publisher will pick it up. If this one doesn’t sell… no sequel folks. It’s just not worth the investment by the publisher. So I’m holding the sequel hostage. MWhahaha.
Right now the Kindle version is available for either the price of $0 if you have Kindle Unlimited, or $3.99 if you don’t. The Paperback is $13.95. (Sorry, I didn’t pick the price. I was really hoping it’d be under $10.)
Personally, I’m gonna buy about 20 of them. And guess who is getting an autographed copy for Christmas? (My entire extended family!)
And finally, this is how I feel as I try to ignore the awesomeness of this moment and work on the third book in the series:
