Thanks to all my peeps who’ve been so kind, helpful, and supportive while I was getting this book ready for release.

This also seems like a good time to publicly express my gratitude and admiration for Passive Guy, David Gaughran, Hugh Howey, Data Guy, Joe Konrath, and all the other indie trailblazers who’ve thrown their cloaks over the mud for those of us coming after, and generously given their time and energy to educate us on the business.

I want my book to be fun for you. I don’t want you to buy it because I gave you a desperate scary hard sell, like that lady in the store who’s all “Can I help you? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeease? Help you?” I hope you’ll check it out and, if it seems like your kind of thing, I hope you’ll buy it and read it.

And hey guess what? The holiday season is coming, and Kindle gifts are cheap and easy! So if you know someone else who enjoys supernatural stories, I hope you’ll keep my book in mind.

My final hope is that if you do read it and enjoy it, you’ll consider leaving a review on Amazon. This need not take long. Just a sentence or two makes a huge difference, because reviews are the tasty snacks that feed Amazon’s magical algorithm dragon.

Now if you’ll excuse me, there is a celebratory rye and tonic calling my name.

  1. Bought it but I can’t add it to my Goodreads to-read pile so everyone knows I’m going to read it because IT’S NOT THERE! (And I’m supposed to be working right now, so I don’t have time to add it. But I do have time to write this comment. Don’t judge.) Down that rye and tonic and get on it, Jen!

    • Bit of difficulty with my Goodreads account–as in, apparently I deleted it at some point. I set up a new one but can’t do anything (add editions, etc.) until it’s 1 day old. A friend added Ghost manually and I’ll fix up the details ASAP.

      Thanks again for taking the time to bring this to my attention.

    • Well, that’s especially nice that you bought it if you can’t read it for a month. :) Thanks. And your lack of time is understandable since you have your own release coming!

      NaNo’ing as well, in spurts. It’s soooo bad.

    • Okay, just read the first two chapters on the Look Inside feature. I’m SO hooked. I haven’t felt like that about a first-person narrative book in a very, very long time. It’s on my list now, when I get funds on Friday. I promise.

    • because Baileys

      You make a compelling argument.

      And thanks for the kind words! (I’ve decided it’s totally okay to thank people who give feedback directed to you on your blog; that’s not the same thing as responding to reviews. Nobody should take this as a sign that I’m stocking up on adult diapers and Mello Yello so I can drive 86 hours straight and confront you at your office if you don’t like my book.)

      Funny you should say that about first person. Some of my favorite books are in first, but I feel it’s been way overused in the last, oh, decade, and tried to resist it. Started the first draft of Ghost in third. She wasn’t having it.
