I’ve been on hiatus for a while now, but I’m slowly getting back into things again. I have these concept art images from Jerry Shaffer to share today.
As part of being the Book of the Day, the Online Book Club is having a giveaway on Amazon for a few free Kindle copies of Divergent Chill: Battle of Nesma. Hurry to this link to sign up for it before the copies are gone!
Divergent Chill: Battle of Nesma was the Online Book Club’s Book of the Day on Friday! I would have posted about it on my site sooner than this, but I was too busy keeping up with all the tweets, retweets, likes, follows, etc. on my Twitter, @DivergentZen. As of the time of this post, the initial tweet from @TWBookClub about my book being the BotD received 144 retweets and 101 likes from various members in the OBC community and beyond.
I can’t say, really, what effect this has had on sales, as Divergent Chill: Battle of Nesma is offered free on Kindle Unlimited, where I’m compensated for each normalized page read, and overseas sales can take time to process. But, I’m hopeful I’ve intrigued a lot of new readers and possibly picked up some future fans.
It’s also worth noting that people were universally complimentary of the book’s cover, created by David Williams and Jerry Shaffer.
Next up, Bargain Book Reviews is scheduled to review Divergent Chill: Battle of Nesma on July 18. That date may change, however. So, we’ll see.
Divergent Chill: Battle of Nesma and Divergent Chill: Fall of Night are both still on sale, but won’t be for much longer. Get them this week is my advice.
And I just want to say thanks, again, to Scott Hughes and the Online Book Club community for the support they’ve shown my book for the Book of the Day. Maybe Divergent Chill: Fall of Night will have it’s “day,” too.
And then maybe Divergent Chill Volume 3… 😉
Divergent Chill: Battle of Nesma received a 4-out-of-4 star review from reviewer Jax14 of the Online Book Club!!!
You can read the full review here (and comment in the forum). What follows is an excerpt.
“I was absolutely enthralled by this book. It became difficult to move from page to page as I wanted to hurry up and get to the climax, yet I longed to savour it for as long as possible. The idea behind the story ranging from meeting the Divergent to the inevitable climactic battle is gripping and fast-paced. Interspersed with journal entries from the only male-born Divergent, the story tells of elemental users, certain races being treated as lesser beings according to their traditions, and the binding thread through it all; enacting deeds for loyalty. Whether that loyalty is to the Empire, a loved one or even to oneself, sometimes it blinds us and the outcome of our deeds can haunt us for life.”
