Amazon Author Stats - Summit Success Pre-Release

[originally published 09-13-2014]
Summit Success: Training for Hiking, Mountaineering, and Peak Bagging
My latest book has been live now in paperback for one full day, and on Pre-Order for Kindle for a little over a week. In that time I've gone up the Amazon Author Ranking quite a bit. Here are a couple of views:
Kindle, Sept 12:
Amazon Author Rank 12 Sept 2014 from pre-release of Kindle Edition of Summit Success: Training for Hiking, Mountaineering, and Peak Bagging

I'm pretty stoked and I hope the sales dashboard on the back end begins to reflect all of that when the pre-orders are all filled and billed.
If you're wanting to buy one, now is a great time as Amazon has a spectacular price on the paperback. Hopefully it's to stimulate early sales. Anyway, if you want it for about 20% off the list price, now is the time.
Oh, and be sure to sign up for the newsletter (right side of article) and I'll send you exclusive offers, deals, and first opportunities when I do events, etc.

You want to get the Kindle for Free? Check out this little vid to learn how:

 
Note: you must use your Kindle to "Borrow for Free" from the Kindle Lending Library, a benefit of Amazon Prime. It allows you to "check out" one book per month. You can keep it for as long as you want, in general, but you cannot do it more than twice a month, and you cannot have more than one at a time. I use it and it's been a great benefit.
I do not have Kindle Unlimited so I can't tell you how that works, but if you read a lot and don't want to take risks on poor book quality, you can just get a few dozen books, read the first 30 or so pages and delete it if you don't like it. I'm not too concerned about that because I put everything I had into the quality of this book. I know you'll be pleased.

Sweet Infected Inspirations

My character Emma, the protagonist, started out as one person and became another. It shows in the book as she evolves and transforms in so many ways from the opening butt-kicking scene to the final fight of the book. Then we get to see even more in the teaser for book 2.

I started out writing about her without really knowing her, and little clues and hints about her personality and appearance came to me as I slowly grew to know her bit by bit. I became her in spirit, since it's a first-person narrative. Every time I sat down to write I had to get into character to be sure to have the consistency necessary for a smooth plot flow.

I've mentioned a few times now that Anime was a major influence on my characters and their relationships. Every now and then I find an image on G+ that represents some small facet of Emma's character.

My reviewers think I did an excellent job. I hope you will too.

Review: Children of Atlas [science fiction]

Children of Atlas by Dustin Porta
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

To me it seemed very convoluted and disjointed. I started skimming ahead looking for something to like. The protagonist seemed likable enough to start, but soon the empathy failed and there turned out to be multiple protagonist lines and eventually I started hoping everyone would just die. Sorry about that.

I know several people out there like this kind of story, but I'm not one of them. Written well enough, just no characters to latch onto and get the feels for [for me anyway].
