TORMENT Revealed!

Caulborn 6, TORMENT, is done being edited and is off to be formatted. I’m hoping to have it published by the end of the month. Stay tuned! Meantime, I wanted to share the cover and blurb with you:

Torment-800 Cover reveal and PromotionalThe promise Vincent Corinthos made to Megan Hayes has been hanging over his head like the proverbial sword of Damocles. And now that sword has fallen. When Megan is murdered, Vincent gets a one-way trip to Hell, is cut off from his friends and followers, and will be locked away in a forgotten corner of the Pit.

All appears lost until a loophole is found in his promise, and Hades himself offers Vincent a way out: A demon that Vincent knows all too well is on the loose, and Hades wants him back. Vincent has just twenty-four hours to return his quarry to the Pit. If he succeeds, he’ll do what’s never been done before, and walk out of Hell scot-free. If he fails, he’ll spend the rest of his existence in eternal torment.

NIGHTFALL Now Available!

I’m proud to announce that NIGHTFALL, Caulborn 5, is now available at Amazon! The paperback is being worked now, and should be available soon.

In other news, the amazing Ian McEuen will be recording FRACTURES (and NIGHTFALL, of course) and hopefully that will release in January.

And, for those forward-thinking folks, Caulborn 6 should release in June 2017. 🙂

 

NIGHTFALL Revealed!

Caulborn 5, NIGHTFALL, is being formatted right now and should be available later this month. In the meantime, here’s the cover & blurb.

nightfall_800-cover-reveal-and-promotional-2Vincent Corinthos has made his share of enemies. He’s squared off against diabolical megalomaniacs, shadow lords and intergalactic conquerors. And now he and the rest of Boston’s Caulborn have been targeted by a clan of vampiric assassins.

After suffering casualties and the destruction of their headquarters, the Caulborn are forced to temporarily retreat from our universe. As they lick their wounds, Vincent taps every resource he has to prepare a final, desperate counterstrike against the assassins.

Night is falling on Boston’s Caulborn. Will they survive to see the dawn?

 

FRACTURES Revealed!

I’m happy to say that FRACTURES, Caulborn 4, is currently being formatted as both an e-book and a paperback, and should be available later this month. Stay tuned!

Meantime, here’s the cover and the blurb.

In 1854, CaulbFractures-2500x1563-Amazon-Smashwords-Kobo-Appleorn agents stopped an interdimensional warlord named Sakave from conquering our universe. With protective extradimensional barriers in place, Sakave’s attempted conquest is now little more than a note in the Caulborn’s archives.

That is, until the recent catastrophe at Ashgate Penitentiary weakened those barriers and made Sakave a threat again. Things get worse when Commander Courageous gives Vincent Corinthos a dangerous piece of advice, which fractures those barriers even further.

Tapped for a black ops mission to repair the damage, Vincent finds himself under the command of a man who doesn’t trust him, and allied with an enemy he hasn’t seen in four hundred years. If they succeed, Earth and the Caulborn might pull through unscathed. If they fail, life as we know it ends.

 

Paperbacks and Audiobooks

Just wanted to give a quick update that paperback copies of the Caulborn novels are now available! Get ’em while they’re hot!

Imperium

Promise

Shadows

I’m also working with the insanely talented narrator Ian McEuen to create audiobooks of the Caulborn series as well. Ian’s been working his way through Imperium and he’s doing an amazing job with all the voices. He’s quite the opera singer, too, you can learn more about him here.

SHADOWS, Caulborn 3, Is Now Available!

I am proud to announce the release of Caulborn 3, SHADOWS, which is available now from Amazon.

Shadows-2500x1563-Amazon-Smashwords-Kobo-Apple
Four years ago, Caulborn agent Vincent Corinthos stopped a hellish ritual intended to transform Ulysses Pendleton into a creature of utter darkness. With Pendleton safely imprisoned in Ashgate Penitentiary, Vincent and the rest of the Caulborn figured the world was a little bit safer.

Until now. A catastrophic failure with the prison’s security systems sends Vincent and the rest of the Caulborn into Ashgate to try and prevent the inmates from escaping. They secure all but one. Pendleton.

Now, Vincent’s in a race against the clock to find Pendleton before he can finish the job he started four years ago, and smother Boston in shadows.

Rebranding 3 – Facebook Ads

I’ll be up front about something. I’ve always struggled to promote my work. I’ve tried a bunch of different things, but it wasn’t until very recently that I found something that actually worked for me. That was, as the title of the post suggests, Facebook Ads.

Here are my total sales for the month of September. Across all 10 titles I have available at Amazon, I made 7 sales.Sept2015

Here are my sales for October. As you can see, I made 4 sales.

And these numbers are pretty typical. I usually do between 2-10 sales a month. (Actually, there was one month where I did -1 sales, because I made no new sales and someone returned a copy of Imperium. That was depressing.)

To say I was discouraged would be an understatement. I’d tried book tours, promotion sites, giveaways, paid ads on Goodreads, and a few other things, but at best I’d get a blip of one or two sales. Then fellow author Rick Gualtieri pointed me at a free mini course on Facebook ads and suggested I give it a try. I commissioned some art from StreetlightGraphics.com and spun up this ad, which launched on Nov 8.

Here are my numbers for November so far.

At the time of this writing, I have made over 140 sales in 12 days. While that’s still small compared to some, it’s huge for me. So, if you’re looking to get a boost in your sales numbers, look into Facebook ads. They just might be what you need.
