Pushing Book 1 to Sell Book 2

Ladies & gentlemen, we are finally under a month away from the release of Long Live the King!!  I’m in full promo mode and I am sooooo excited for this book to hit your kindle!!  I went through so much to bring this story and these characters to the perfect conclusion, and in less than thirty days, you’ll finally get to see how it all ends.

However, there are new nerves that come with this release.  While I’m beyond excited about dropping this book, there’s something that has me worried.  LLTK is a book 2, and that is cause for concern.  Historically, book 2 never sells like book 1.  Naturally, some of the people who read book 1 don’t bother to read book 2 because they don’t like the first one.  Also, blogs who didn’t read book 1 aren’t jumping through the roof to promote book 2.  Lastly, people are skeptical about sequels, especially if the first one was good.  So, I know LLTK has a tough road ahead, but the people who read it will be blown away, and hopefully that gets them talking.  I wrote this book to knock people’s socks off, and I expect nothing less.

But, in order for me to hype the world up about book 2, I need to remind them about book 1 (or introduce them to), Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance).

If you haven’t met Dominic Collazo, now is the time to do it.  Kingpin is on sale for only 99¢, and will stay on sale until mid-September when LLTK and Kingpin both go to full price.  So, now’s the time to dive into this insane world of La Cosa Nostra and get to know Dominic, Alannah, and their second-chance romance.  These two meet as 11 year-olds and spend time together before being pulled apart by life, only to be brought back together in the middle of a street war.  Alannah has a lot to deal with and a lot to learn about the grown-up edition of Dominic Collazo, and it’s gonna take everything she’s got to stay afloat.

Before I wrote LLTK, Kingpin was my favorite of all my books.  Bringing Dominic to life in Kingpin was so fun and he quickly became my favorite character.  So if you haven’t read Kingpin, it’s about that time!  Go one-click Kingpin right this second, because it’s gonna cost you less than a dollar!  And if you already have read Kingpin, now’s the time to read it again and remind yourself of how insanely badass Dominic is, because he’s about to come back and take your world on a roller coaster ride.  He’s about to remind you all why book 1 was so big, and why you fell in love with him in the first place.  So Kingpin is here to serve as a reminder before Long Live the King explodes onto the scene.

Go one-click Kingpin now for only 99¢, and brace yourself, because the epic conclusion, Long Live the King, is coming September 5th.

Buckle up!

Until Next Week..

The Gate is Wide Open – Following Kingpin

When I was writing Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance Duet #1), I knew it was going to change everything.  I could feel it when I was typing the words, when the phrases flowed out like water after the dam breaks.  I knew it when I felt more motivated and excited to promote and advertise for Kingpin, and I felt it in my gut when people kept saying they were just as hyped up about the release as I was.  Then, on May 2nd, it happened.  The change I had been waiting for finally came.  Kingpin quickly became my bestselling book to date, an international bestseller, and I was suddenly a somebody on the cusp of becoming a bigger somebody in this game.  The reviews poured in and people started talking about me, wondering if I was a man or a woman and all kinds of other shit.  Just like that, everything changed.  WS Greer came to life.

Now, here we are, a month and a half after Kingpin’s release, and it feels like everything I did before May 2nd was just a dream.  I don’t think about any of this stuff the same way now.  It’s like I got a big, fat, boost of confidence in myself, and the freakin’ flood gates are wide open.  I’m currently in the middle of writing Long Live the King (An Italian Mafia Romance Duet #2), and I feel like a man possessed (yes, I am a man).  I feel more motivated than ever to do this my way, because I know that doing it my way is the only way that makes sense for me.  It might not work for anybody else, but it only has to work for me.  When I write for LLtK (Long Live the King), it’s like I go into a different zone.  I’m like a damn genius with words, metaphors, and similes.  I edit like nobody’s business, and my imagination is live and vivid like I’m watching it in my living room on my 65″ LED TV.  I hate that I wasted so much time trying to be something I’m not, but now that I’m doing this my way and for myself, it’s on like never before.  I’m a mission.  I’m gonna be the hottest male author in the indie game, and what’s more, I’m gonna do it without selling myself out and writing “what’s hot.”  I’m gonna do it by writing exactly what I want, and it’s gonna blow your minds, because when I’m doing it for me, I’m actually really good at this shit (forgive me for the brief moment of tooting my own horn)  Mark my words.  Kingpin was just the beginning.

So before I go, here’s my promise to you.  If you loved Kingpin, that’s awesome, and I thank you for taking a chance with me and eagerly awaiting what I have coming next to see if I can sustain this momentum—to see if I’m really as good as Kingpin made it look like I am.  Well, I promise you, I’m that good (horn tooting again, sorry), and Long Live the King is going to BLOW YOU AWAY.  You’ve never read a mafia romance like this.  And I can’t wait to read your reviews and messages when you finish it and have the most insane book hangover you’ve ever experienced.  The flood gates are wide open, and I’m gonna live up to the tagline in my new logo.  Just you wait and see.
