3XBLACK CYBER FRIDAY EBOOK LAUNCH TOMORROW!
In the tradition of Press 53's snaky powerplay to lure mainstream readers to offbeat indie lit, you're invited to storm Amazon's Kindle Store this Friday in an effort to propel "badbadbad" to the top of the ebook sales chart where unsuspecting Stieg Larsson or Murakami fans might also choose to check it out for a mere $2.99. That's not even three dollars, friends.
If you participate in today's promo, I'll email your choice of an MP3 of the novel's original soundtrack or a WMV download of the book's documentary film. (Just drop me a note with a copy of the receipt.)
Published in paperback in May by New Pulp Press, Jesus Angel Garcia's debut novel has been widely praised in the literary press. Antonia Crane in the Rumpus called the story "risky," "humorous" and "horrifying": "bursting at the seams with fascinating women who are outrageous in their demands and crackling with desire."
Jon Reiss of Vol. 1 Brooklyn said it's "a momentum-gaining rollercoaster of faith and desire which spirals into the most entertaining kind of destruction."
Karen Lillis (The Small Press Librarian) wrote: "badbadbad reveals a new brand of lust for life and a new kind of lost generation. Recommended for collections of contemporary fiction, literary fiction, small press fiction, emerging authors, neo-pulp fiction, fiction about the Internet age and Southern fiction."
Links to all reviews and advance blurbs, radio/podcast interviews, videos of readings, novel excerpts and samples from 3xbad's transmedia material (soundtrack and film) are here: http://badbadbad.net/
3XBLACK CYBER FRIDAY PARTY PLAN
1) Purchase a copy of badbadbad via Amazon on Friday, December 2nd (12am to 11:59pm) at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006E9039E
. (A purchase on any day is a great help, but our goal is to drive the Amazon sales ranking to the top, so ordering on Friday will concentrate sales and keep it moving up the chart.)
2) Spread the word by "sharing" the Amazon link or this event page on social networking sites (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc).
3) While at Amazon, hit the "Like" button for the book. This helps Amazon with suggestions and drives more traffic to the 3xbad page.
4) Post a note on your Facebook telling everyone you just bought a 3xbad ebook and drop me an email for your free transmedia bonus goods. Oh yeah.
Many thanks to everyone for supporting badbadbad and the independent arts.
Of course, the print book is also still available on Amazon and elsewhere, including badbadbad.net
, where the thank-you gifts still apply. Just let us know!
Thanks so much for reading,
