Update #33

Welcome to week two, post-launch!

3 comments

First, and most of all, thank you to each of you. The positive comments, word of mouth and heartfelt stories of real change have been extraordinary, and they mean the world to me. You guys are worth writing for. Thank you.

After the first week hoopla, a book settles into a glide path that determines whether it's going to reach the audience it was intended for. And that's where you come in. If Icarus (or V is...) resonated with you, will you share it? Either hand over your copy or send someone to a store or online to pick one up... If you email twenty people you care about, that will have a huge impact.

The affirmative act of sharing from reader to reader is the #1 way that books get sold and ideas spread.

Here's a simple link:

Keep making a ruckus, guys. And thanks.

    The digital preview edition of The Icarus Deception, available to you first, before any other versions are delivered to anyone, anywhere. We'll send you a link to the entire book on a specially formatted website, available to read online only for four days, and then it's gone.

    One copy of the hardcover edition of Icarus, delivery anywhere in the world included. I can't possibly sell this to you cheaper than an online bookseller, but it's here as an option for those who prefer to get just one copy mailed to them. I'm hoping that you will buy the four pack instead because it's such a good deal. Also includes access to the preview digital edition.

    THE LP (on vinyl) of the first 40 minutes of the audio version of ICARUS. A full audio will be available for sale when we publish in January, but here's a collectible LP for the hipsters.

    FOUR COPIES of the hardcover edition of Icarus, delivery anywhere in the world included in the price. This is a MUCH better deal than the single copy and you can share with friends and colleagues. Also includes access to the preview digital edition.

    ONE COPY of the mammoth limited edition 275,000 word best-of-the-net hardcover collection that won't be sold in stores. The only place to get it is right here and right now. If you want more than one, that's fine, just get a friend to buy one too. All purchasers of this collection (at any level) will be invited to have their name added to a page inside. Also includes access to the preview digital edition of Icarus, because you're awesome.

    ONE and ONE: Some readers are unhappy getting the $62 behemoth edition all by itself, because it doesn't include the hardcover copy of ICARUS. And some people aren't crazy about the $76 8 pack because it doesn't include the behemoth or because they don't think they can share 8 books well. So, with a little juggling, we're offering this, which is the behemoth, delivered in January, and a copy of ICARUS, delivered in late January or possibly early February. Hope this helps. US delivery only on this reward, please.

    Your story, told. I'll interview you and write at least a paragraph about something brave or powerful or remarkable you've done or built--and include it in all editions of The Icarus Deception. I can offer this without fear of being stuck or compromising the work because everyone has something artistic in their history (and their future). Also includes everything in the No-Brainer level.
