Valentine's Day is the free download day for my new novel, Rattlesnake Wedding. Realistically, a few dozen people might download the book on amazon.com and tell their friends to pay $5.99 on Monday. Still, there's a chance that this is the next Call Me Maybe. Download Me Maybe?
Carly Rae Jepson was an unknown Canadian singer signed to an unknown label when she recorded the ubiquitous track. The song played on a Canadian radio station where it was heard by Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez. They took to twitter and the rest is history. The song is one of the biggest downloads in world history.
Note to Selena Gomez, there's a part in the book for you if it's made into a film. Seriously!
As a University of Colorado alum, I'm also intrigued by the story of South Park. Two CU grads were working as assistants for a producer who asked them to send out a DVD of their short animated film as joke to the fifty people on his Christmas card list. George Clooney was on the list, and he liked the DVD that he told his agent. That led to the show on Comedy Central, and ultimately to a three HUNDRED MILLION dollar deal to start their own studio.
Note to Eric Cartman, there's a part in the book for you if it's made into a film. Seriously!
As I've said, I'm lowering my expections, I want to make double digits in free downloads. I would be happy if TEN people download the book, and I get one nice email saying "Hey, I really liked it and I recommended it to my friend." But a man, can dream, can't he?
My book is published
And this is crazy,
Here's the amazon link
