My Merry Christmas Book! Good things happen all at once, I guess.
My sequel to Led to the Slaughter, starring Virginia Reed, is out!
The Dead Spend No Gold: Bigfoot and the California Gold Rush, by Duncan McGeary, Books of the Dead Press.
This is a stand alone book, by the way. If you happen to like Bigfoot! It isn't at all necessary to read the first book to get the complete story. It is set a year after the Donner Party, when gold has been discovered in the Sierra's.
"Virginia Reed survived the Donner Party Werewolves only to find herself
in a life and death struggle with a creature out of nightmares. When
gold is discovered, California becomes flooded with miners who push
Indian tribes from their lands, or kill them if they refuse to leave.
But there is a creature in the mountains who reacts to the invasion of
his territory by slaying everyone who trespasses."
I'm asking you guys to please buy this book from Amazon, especially in the first week or so. If enough people buy it at the same time, it could end up on some of the best-seller lists. Really that simple. If you buy this before Christmas, it could move the title way up the rankings. A bunch of books sold in the first week or ten days has an outsized impact. Even if you don't want to read it yourself, send it to someone who likes the weird and wonderful.
It costs $3.99. It means more to me than you can imagine.
Oh, and please, please, please give it a review. Just a sentence or two and a ranking, that's all it needs. Reviews are pretty much the whole ballgame. People buy books over the long run because of reviews.
I'm really proud of this book. I tried to make it a great successor to Led to the Slaughter.
The Tuskers release is still over a month away, so this is my Christmas book. In fact, hey, it might make a good gift!
After ten months of hard work, good things are starting to happen again.
I feel like Led to the Slaughter got my foot in the door, and I'd like to pry it open a couple more inches. This is my chance to make some headway against some very strong winds. (The sheer number of books being released is astounding.) So please don't hesitate, go directly to the Link and click. I will be forever grateful. And maybe some day, you can say you know a best-selling author.
You could make this a very Merry Christmas with just a click. Make it a gift!
I'm Duncan McGeary, owner and/or operator for the last 33 years of Pegasus Books in Downtown Bend, Oregon. These days I'm writing books as well as selling them.
I'm the comic book guy. But even more so, I'm a book book guy. Books of all kinds. Big books and little books, children's and adult, fiction and non-fiction, hardback and paperback and trade paperback and graphic novels. Books with more words than pictures and books with more pictures than words. They are all part of the book world to me, and I love being surrounded by them every day.
I also have a second blog: Pegasus Books, where I list the product coming in over the next week.
