After issues with my newsletter a few weeks back, with the text getting cut off, I’m happy to say I got Mailerlite to change their settings, giving a little more leeway with the size of a sent newsletter. I worked with my website provider WordPress and they said the problem was on Mailerlite’s side, which is what I suspected. Once I was able to prove this to them they increased the size, so this newsletter will not get cut off partway through, requiring readers to go to my website to read the rest. Which I’m thrilled about since my read rate on the last newsletter was down quite a bit. Thanks for sticking with me while I got this issue resolved.
With that good news, I have even more exciting news. The date is set for the release of Sold Souls: The Divine Devils Book 3. The eBook will be coming out June 1st and it’s available right now at the pre-order price of $3.99 on Amazon, a $3 discount on the release price. Be forewarned this book does have some intense passages, as it deals with human/sex trafficking. Here is the synopsis of the book to give you a taste of what the story is about.
The brutal world of human trafficking. Where underage children are bought, sold, and sexually abused by their deviant owners. The victims traded, used up, and spit out as if their lives were meaningless. A lethal adversary approaching The Divine Devils with a scary proposition. Locate and free her sister from the tortured, abusive shackles of being trafficked.
The foe hiring The Divine Devils to assist in tracking her down. Hunter and his team fighting for those who can’t fight for themselves. Infiltrating the heart of the intricate web this organization has created. Following a brutal, deadly road to free these Sold Souls, before they all perish at the hands of their savage masters.
With this new release comes a new cover which I’m revealing for the first time. My cover artist Mia did a great job capturing what I wanted in the design. I hope you like it as much as I do.
There will be a paperback version as well. I’ve ordered a proof copy, which I should receive in about a week. Once I’m sure there are no formatting issues, I’ll approve the paperback and begin ordering copies to sell at my events. I should have them by the end of May and available for readers to purchase. I will have more information in the next newsletter, and I’ll include the final paperback cover for your viewing.
With the release of the new book, I plan on having a special price for the eBook version of The Divine Devils. This will begin on the release date of Sold Souls and run for 5 days. I will have more details in the next newsletter as well.
I added several more events, which I’ll be doing starting this Saturday and running for four straight weeks. You can find a complete listing on my website on the Events page. Here are the graphics for three of them, and I’ll be at The Shed again on May 14th from 10-3:
A reminder about the release of the new audiobook Tracking A Shadow. I’d love for everyone to give it a listen. You can check out a preview here. And I have a few free promo codes to giveaway for the book to anyone interested and would be willing to leave an honest review. Here are the first two reviews I received for the audiobook version of the Amazon Bestselling Jarvis Mann PI novel:
I recommend this to anyone who loves a good PI book. I hope his other books also go on audio, so I can enjoy them all over again. The narration was dramatic and definitely fit this story. So, thank you Eric Priessman for that, and R Weir for putting the story in this format. Tracking a Shadow: A Jarvis Mann Detective Novel on audiobook is a definite listening recommendation by Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews. I look forward to listening to many more titles by this author – Amy
The story was a bit predictable but good. Enjoyed the reader. Well read, great voice over! – Wendy
