Ok, self-published, but still...
Shadow of the Wraith, my (non-sci-fier friendly) science fantasy novel is available in both hardback and ebook formats! The hardback is a special edition, with excerpts from book 2 and a little bit of artwork, and is available here: http://tiny.cc/ShadowOfTheWraith.
The ebook version is available here: http://tiny.cc/E-ShadowOfTheWraith (UK) and http://tiny.cc/ShadowOfTheWraithUS (US). For any Amazon Prime members out there, it should also be enrolled in KDP Select and available to borrow. Amazon seems to be having little bit of trouble with ebooks at the moment though, so I'm not sure if the borrowing is working for mine yet.
A lot of people who would not normally like sci fi have read it here on Authonomy and really liked it, so you really don't need to be a sci fi lover to enjoy it.
I'd appreciate the support as well on the Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/StarWraith) and Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/AuthoRoss).
Thanks! Posted: 03/05/2012 10:36:27Last Edit: 25/05/2012 11:42:34 by ShadowOfOsiris
This is the comment from a poet here on Authonomy who doesn't like sci fi:
'I can't believe I read... Sci-fi... the whole thing... and I want to read it again? I don't know what Star Wars or Star Trek is like because I never cared for either one but I really just want to read more about Travis and his posse! This was simply entertaining for anyone, even sci-fi haters.... that want to read something good!
Now the question is, when can I buy this?' Posted: 03/05/2012 10:43:41

Congratulations, you should repost the 1st 10000 words on here to get people hooked into buying it Posted: 03/05/2012 12:56:08
I can't. It's in KDP Select, so it has to be exclusive to Amazon for 90 days - can't have it here. I'll probably put it back up after that though. At least there's a preview of most of chapter one on Lulu and Amazon Or it will be on Amazon when they get themselves sorted out. Posted: 03/05/2012 12:59:27
I've been going through all the comments I had on the book, sending messages to everyone who was actively positive about it, and liked it. Out of 105 comments, there were only 3 or 4 people that I didn't message! That's pretty damn good, I think Posted: 03/05/2012 14:49:23
This was John Breeden (Old Number Seven, http://www.authonomy.com/books/24534/old-number-seven/):
'Shadow of The Wraith is a really good example of science fantasy. Primarily author [...] is concerned with telling a great story, which just happens to be set in space in the future, and on this he is successful. [...] Shadow of The Wraith is a perfect sci-fi read for those who want a great story without getting bogged down in the technical details of most stories of this type. In that, I think this novel will achieve critical acclaim and reader appreciation once published.' Posted: 03/05/2012 16:07:52
