The Great Friday the 13th Giveaway!

FROM THE ASHES has been garnering rave reviews from readers, professional book reviewers, and top thriller authors alike.  And this coming weekend, the adventure is going to get even bigger!

For two days only (Friday, April 13th and Saturday, April 14), FROM THE ASHES will be available for FREE on Kindle, Nook, iBooks, and Sony eReader.  This will be a tremendous opportunity for readers who have not yet discovered the book that is being called “an ingenious, thought-provoking, and emotionally engaging thriller” (New York Times bestselling author Lou Aronica) and “a thrilling race against time to expose a diabolical conspiracy that would shatter everything we think we know about the 20th century” (bestselling author Boyd Morrison) to dive in to the season’s most riveting debut thriller – for FREE!  And after April 14th, the ebook versions of the book will be available for a limited time for only $2.99!

If you have already read and loved FROM THE ASHES, I have something for you,  too.  But first, I need your help.  There are a lot of books to choose from these days, particularly on sites like Amazon where the vast selection available on Kindle seems to be growing exponentially, but you can help FROM THE ASHES rise to the top.  There are three easy ways that you can help get the word out to future readers so they can discover the first of Jonathan Rickner’s epic adventures:

1. Post five-star reviews on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  The average star rating and the number of reviews tend to be two major deciding factors in readers purchasing a book by a new author.  Even if you purchased the book from Barnes and Noble or iBooks, you can still post reviews on Amazon, and vice versa, so please, leave your five-star review as many places as possible.

2. Tell your friends, family, coworkers, Facebook friends, Twitter followers, blog readers, etc. about the book and the promotion.  Word of mouth is still the most valuable and effective tool for introducing people to new products, books, or authors.  Tell your friends and loved ones about FROM THE ASHES and this tremendous opportunity to join the adventure for free.  Post info and links on your Facebook status.  Tweet and retweet about it.  Write a review on your blog or website.  The more chatter we get going about FROM THE ASHES, the more people are going to discover the adventure that you’ve already enjoyed.

3. Tell people you don’t know.  In order to reach as many people as possible, I’ve also created a flyer that you can post on bulletin boards at your workplace, your university, your favorite coffee shop, or wherever.  Just click, print, and post.

As thanks for all of your support thus far, I’m working on a behind-the-scenes addition to this website that will take you on a photographic journey to some of the sites I explored in researching and writing FROM THE ASHES.  You’ll get to see the sights that inspired the adventure and gain new perspective on Jon and Mara’s quest – and Rockefeller’s ingenuity.  Stay tuned, and thanks for helping spread the word about FROM THE ASHES!

    Excellent book — easily compares to Dan Brown’s “Divinci Code” and “Angels and Demons”.
    Would make a great movie!
