I just reviewed a great three-book boxed set of science fiction books. I highly recommend it. Check it out at https://www.amazon.com/SciFi-Cyberpunk-Tales-Trilogy-Dystopian-ebook/dp/B01MVA6RZL/

One of the authors, Ashley Hunt, just gave me a wonderful character interview with Vivian Hsu (Red Viper), the kick-ass anti-heroine, which I will be including in the April 1st issue of Firesmith's Speculative Fiction Newsletter. You can subscribe to at: http://donaldfiresmith.com/subscribe/
Believe me, you won''t want to miss it.

Also, every month, I will be running a contest in which all subscribers are automatically entered. First prize is an autographed copy of Hell Holes 2: Demons on the Dalton.

In spite of a nasty cold, I'm feeling pretty good. As I expected my book, Hell Holes: What Lurks Below, had been falling for the last two days from its high point of #10 on the Amazon Post-apocalyptic science fiction best seller list. Now unexpectedly, it has amazingly found new legs and has climbed back up to #5. It appears to be a great example of "Nothing succeeds like success" in that there must be a lot of readers who use the Amazon top 100 genre-specific books lists to decide what to read.

Now if only some of these people will leave reviews.

In about a couple of weeks, I am going to be interviewed live on the weekly podcast, Back Porch Writer. There is some confusion as to the exact date and time so I will let you know as soon as I know for sure. The podcast will be broadcast on Blog Talk Radio http://www.blogtalkradio.com/backporchwriter
This will be my first live interview as an author (I have had several written Q&A interviews), and I hope you tune in and join us for the 15 minute broadcast.

Downloads of my first book have continued with over 100 occurring in the last three days. Today, I broke the 1,000 total downloads mark between Barnes & Noble, iBooks, InstaFreebie, Kindle Direct Publishing (Amazon ebooks), and Smashwords. It is amazing what concentrating heavily on marketing for a couple of months can do. In a few days, I am going to look at my daily statistics and try to figure out which of the many marketing approaches I've been using have been the most effective. For example, one of the companies I've used for Book Tours seems to be far more effective than another. Similarly, book spotlights on some eNewsletters also seem better than others (probably due to subscription size and genre makeup).
