Wow, first, thank you SO much to everyone who came out of the woodwork to support FLOTSAM's launch last week. I am delighted and humbled by everyone's purchases and their fantastic reviews. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Parvus Press and I are very happy with the way the novel is performing and are hopeful sales will continue with a little help from the algorithm gods. That said, if you enjoyed FLOTSAM but have yet to leave a review, could you please take some time to share your thoughts with everyone on Amazon and let them know why you loved reading about Talis and the crew of Wind Sabre?
As part of the launch campaign, I tried to get FLOTSAM visible out there on the cold, windswept plains of the internet. Rather than try to come up with something to say again, here's a list of articles I wrote as guests spots on other, gracious bloggers' websites. There's plenty to read through here, so I'll just end it reiterating how much everyone's support means to me! To the readers, my family and friends, to Parvus, to the blog owners, to the authors who gave me such amazing blurbs for my quotes page: THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!
