Finally! A New Update!

Finally! A New Update!

It has been far too long since I’ve updated this site, and now, I’m rebooting things in a big way. First, the promotions for FROM THE ASHES have been hugely successful, with the book being the #1 most downloaded Nook book on BarnesAndNoble.com five days in a row in January 2012 and hitting the Top 20 free list for Kindle in April.  It also charted in the Kindle Top 100 Paid lists in the Thriller and Action/Adventure categories, and between paperback and e-book sales and giveaways, FROM THE ASHES has moved roughly 90,000 copies since its debut last year.  A lot of that is due to fans like you helping me spread the word through online reviews, social media, and – of course – good old-fashioned word of mouth.  Thank you so very much for all your support and assistance in helping make FROM THE ASHES such a success in this very crowded marketplace.   Next, the current edition of FROM THE ASHES is about to be taken off shelves to make way for a big re-release with my new publisher, The Story Plant.  The new version of FROM THE ASHES will launch September 10 with a bold new cover, a slightly larger paperback format, and re-edited text that removes typos, expletives, and other line-item issues that unfortunately made it through the first edition’s editorial process.  I’ve also included a specially devised set of codes – inspired by Rockefeller’s codes in the book – that hold some key information for my next book, which will be released Spring 2014.  The Spring Book (as I’ll enigmatically refer to that project until I officially reveal its title in the coming weeks) is going to be one heck of a thrill ride, steeped in insider knowledge of some impressive international locales and ripped from tomorrow’s headlines.  Stay tuned for more information soon, or, if you can’t wait, see if you can decipher the codes in the FROM THE ASHES re-issue and get the scoop first!   As for my “Mormon book”, which I have posted about via Facebook over the past year and a half, it is still very much alive.  Originally titled THE DESERET BLUEPRINT and starring Jonathan Rickner when I finished it last November, it now has a new title and an awesome new protagonist and is currently being shopped around Big Six publishers in New York by my amazing new agent.  I am really excited to share more information about this blockbuster project with you, as it’s the culmination of seven years of research, travel, and writing, but we’ll save that until the build-up for that book’s release.  Please pray for the right editor...

The Great Friday the 13th Giveaway!

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,...

Jeremy Burns begins Virtual Book Tour

Today marks the beginning of an exciting event: the FROM THE ASHES virtual book tour.  Over the next two months, my debut novel and I will be featured on a variety of book review websites and online bibliophile communities in a series of regular “stops”: reviews, interviews, featured articles, and more.  I will be posting links of the stops on my Facebook fan page and on this site on the “What People are Saying” page (scroll to the bottom of that page to see the links). Follow along to not only see some of the great reviews and coverage FROM THE ASHES is receiving, but also to get some exclusive behind-the-scenes insights into the making of the book, my writing inspiration and processes, and possibly even some sneak peeks into what lies ahead for Jonathan Rickner. In addition, I have a very cool promotion coming up in just a few short weeks… and I will need your help for its success.  More details will be coming very soon, so if you haven’t already, please sign up for my mailing list here and “like” my Facebook fan page to formally join the Jeremy Burns fan community. Finally, a big thank you to all of you who have not only bought and read FROM THE ASHES, but also have left five-star reviews on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Goodreads or have written me or posted on my Facebook fan page wall to tell me how much you loved my book and can’t wait for the next one.  Those really brighten my day and make me all the more determined to make the next book (which will be titled OF FAITH AND TREASON) all the more mystery-filled, action-packed, and just all-around more amazing than anything that’s come before.  Thank you for helping me spread the word and for letting me know how much you enjoy my characters, my stories, and my writing.  This wouldn’t be possible without all of your support and dedication. Thank...
