Divergent Chill Concept Art

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.

Divergent Chill: Battle of Nesma Reviewed by Bargain Book Reviews

Bargain Book Reviews posted their review of Divergent Chill: Battle of Nesma today!

It’s the harshest review I’ve gotten so far, but that kind of makes it more exciting. If you’re always being told how wonderful you are, you tend to develop blind spots and fail to see your weaknesses. Fortunately, it’s not a bad review, a solid 3.2 out of 5 from a tough reviewer.

An excerpt follows. You can read the full review here.

“To put it in perspective, Alden basically went into a jungle, trapped a juvenile tiger, put it on a leash, dyed its fur a different color, and decided to walk it around a major city like any other pet. What could go wrong?

In short? A lot.”

Thanks again, Bargain Book Reviews!


Divergent Chill: Battle of Nesma was the Book of the Day!!!

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… 😉
