Old Broken Road

Well, well, well. What do we have here?

Saturday comes to a close, and the weekend is half over. Still, it feels like a full weekend already. This morning Kari-Lise and I attended an antique event/sale in Enumclaw, Washington, which was a first for us. Neither of us have ever been out there but we both agreed it was beautiful. It’s nestled along the western edge of the Cascades. With the low clouds, the thin creeping fog, and changing trees, it really felt like fall. Fall is the best.

As far as projects go: today, I got some design work done for the upcoming launch. Continued finalizing edits on Old Broken Road (getting so, so close.) And, I finished the last bits of swag. Oh! Something new has cropped up on Goodreads. You should check it out here. Add it to your to-read list!

I’m not slowing down. Work will continue in earnest tomorrow. (Though I’ll pause for a bit as Greenbay plays the Bears. Go Greenbay!) Hope the rest of the weekend is great for everyone else.

And away they go!

Just sent the five signed copies of The Stars Were Right to the latest Goodreads giveaway winners! Excited to get it into their hands. Thanks to everyone who participated. As I said after the last one it’s humbling to see such an amazing turnout for these giveaway. My readers are the best.

There goes the giveaway copies!

When the stars were right…

The Stars Were Right Print Proof

When the stars were right, They could plunge from world to world through the sky; but when the stars were wrong, They could not live.

—H.P. Lovecraft “Call of Cthulhu

This is the Lovecraft quote where I took the title for The Stars Were Right, it’s also the epigraph at the beginning of the novel. If you haven’t gotten a copy yet, you should enter to win a signed version over on Goodreads. US Only. Winners will be selected on the 11th! Good luck!

(If you have gotten your copy and finished the book, go leave me a review. I’d really appreciate it.)

SIGNED Paperbacks Are Here!

My God, it's full of Stars!
The wait is over! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you probably saw my post showing a shipment of books that arrived at my doorstep yesterday. That means the signed paperbacks of The Stars Were Right are finally here and are now available!

Buy ’em at: store.kmalexander.com

You can get a signed individual copy for $14.00 + shipping or you can get it in what I am calling the “Roader Pack” which includes a signed book for yourself and another unsigned copy to give away to a friend at a discount (also plus shipping). “Caravan Packs” will be coming soon as well and will be tailored specifically for book clubs.

Really excited to finally have these available. If you don’t like paying shipping you can still buy a paperback copy of The Stars Were Right directly from Amazon (at Amazon’s slightly discounted price and with their incredibly fast shipping.) You can also try your luck and enter The Stars Were Right Book Giveaway happening over at Goodreads and enter and win one of 5 signed copies I’m giving away for free on January 5th. Winners will be notified directly and announced in The Telegram, my whenever-something-cool-happens newsletter.

Stars is on Google Play, longer excerpt now available, and more!

The Stars Were Right - by K. M. Alexander
I am seeing some great activity around “The Stars Were Right,” and the feedback has been really exciting. I am glad everyone is enjoying it and having fun. That was my goal. As always tell your friends and please leave honest reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. They go a long way.

Few things I want to highlight:

  • “The Stars Were Right” is now available on GooglePlay for those of you who do your reading on Android and Google devices.
  • I’ll have some big announcements coming in the next few months. Including: the name reveal for “Deep” and the cover reveal of “Old Broken Road” (the sequel to “The Stars Were Right.”) Be the first to see these reveals by signing up for my monthly newsletter: The Telegraph. It takes seconds to sign up.
  • I am still working on iBooks and Nook support. I am hoping both are ready for release soon.
  • I am also hunting for a local publisher to do a small run of trade paperbacks. I am not ignoring those of you who want physical copies, it’s coming—not sure when—but it’s coming.

More updates as things happen.
