Thank you to everyone who has bought a copy in whatever form. I appreciate your support. Knowing that people are willing to buy the books means a lot. I want them to be be read too. I don't just care about sales, but if no one buys the book or knows the book exists, then the book will not be bought or read. And a book that goes unread has no chance of doing much good in the world (assuming the book is meant to do that.)
Goodreads has made it possible for me to offer people a safe spot on the internet where they can read samples from my books. I've made samples of all my books available there, and now anyone who wants to see what they might be getting into when they crack open a book by Brandon Davis Jennings can actually crack a book open before you buy it or read it for free on the Kindle Online Lending Library or with your Kindle Unlimited Subscription. There are "look insides" for the e-books on Amazon as well, but not everyone likes Amazon and some folks don't want to go to Amazon unless they are actually buying something that they can't get anywhere else. Anyway, here is the link for The Bombmaker's Wife Goodreads page where you can read a sample from the novel:
Please share this post with your friends and family or anyone who you think might be interested in a story that is more complicated than the nonsense that was just on Law and Order SVU. (Tina and I are both sick of that show and yet for some reason we keep watching....)
Here is a link to the book description on the Amazon sale's page:
I never really thought I would want to write a series or stories set in the same place because the idea seemed too boring to me. But that was before I took the time to think about how much a single place can evolve over time (perhaps something a lot easier to notice when you aren't moving around every couple of years.) Everything around us is constantly changing and will until the day we die...not counting the way our bodies decompose, I guess.
As much ugly as there is out in the world, I'm doing the only thing that I know how to do in order to put a dent in that. I can't do it alone, and I appreciate all the help that you've given me. If I win this contest, then it'll be a lot easier to promote the book (since Amazon will pay to do some of the promotion for me, and as you are aware, Amazon has a lot more money and a lot more people working for them than I have. So it goes.)
Thanks again. I've said it a lot and I'll say it more. Writers aren't doing much to affect change in the world when they don't have readers. I'm lucky that I have a few.
