Rocktober3

It’s the last time for another year that I can use the awesome Rocktober logo (designed by the awesome Magnolia Belle, herself an author of Rock Fiction, so please pick up her books and leave a review when you’ve finished them.), and that makes me sad. I love the Rocktober logo.

As always, it’s been a great month, with new authors and authors who’ve been here before, and books, books, books. Not just books. Rock Fiction.

Haven’t had enough? Well, here’s an offer for you. I’ll leave The Demo Tapes: Year 1 for free for a bit longer — like, whenever I go, “Hey, I should fix that!” — and Trevor’s Song at 99c. If you send me a link to a review you’ve posted at GoodReads, Amazon, B&N, or anywhere else (your blog?), I’ll send you whichever of my books you’d like next. The more reviews you write, the more free books you can earn.

I am hoping to have something brand new (but not Rock Fiction. The horror!) out in the spring. So yes, you can save your freebie for that one, too.

Read. Review. Get free books.

And remember… it’s Rocktober all year long here at the Rock of Pages. Want to write a guest post? Go for it. Post a review? Go for it. Cross-post a review? Go for it. Got something YOU want to covet? Go for it!

Drop Susan and Jett a note. We’d be glad to host you. It’s all about spreading the word of Rock Fiction.

(and to put my money where my mouth is, keep your eyes peeled for my review of Cherry Cox’s book coming soon!)

Because I do it every year… I’ve put the digital version of a few of the books in the Trevolution on sale during Rocktober. Only Trevor’s Song and The Demo Tapes: Year 1, though. (If you’d like a review copy of any of the others, holler and I’ll fix you up. But please… post a review! That’s the purpose of the review copy. See how that works?)

I figured those are my two best-sellers, so let’s bring some new friends in.

Here are the links that generate the best sales, but use your favorite retailer. Independents rule!

And, as always, if you Amazon shoppers could take a minute and report Mannequin as free everywhere BUT Amazon, I’d appreciate it.

I guess Susan was too embarrassed to come over here and toot her own horn (which is weird. She’s not like that when it comes to her books). Maybe she’s just super busy.

BUT all of her books are on huge discounts through the rest of the week at Smashwords. Like, discounted down to FREE.

Here’s the link to her Smashwords page.

And if you download her books — or other Rock Fiction — and want to come over here and post your reviews, give a yell. We’d love to help you do that. Takes some of the pressure off me, and that’s always a good thing.

If you aren’t into preorders for whatever reason, now’s the time to pick up Broken, Susan’s new short story.

Smashwords — Susan’s favorite retailer ’cause they pay the highest royalties and have some of the best sales.

You eagle-eyed, eager-beaver types might have already noticed it, but Susan’s new story, Broken, is up for pre-order at Smashwords and Amazon. Get your copy. It’s 99c, and Susan could really use the cash and I really hope she doesn’t see that or she’ll delete it out. [Yeah, ordinarily, I would, but things right now are extra tight. I could use the royalties. –Susan]

Preorders should be up soon at B&N and Kobo and iBooks, so keep a lookout for them. If you see them, holler and we’ll post the links.

And you Amazon people, if you are feeling kindly toward Susan, who really does a lot for the book community [Hey, thanks, Jett! — Susan], why not report that free price on Mannequin to Amazon? It’s free everywhere BUT Amazon, and hearing from all you might be more helpful than the constant pokes from me and her. She says free books help fuel the sale of the rest of the books, so let’s help her out.

I told Susan she could talk about her new story over at West of Mars, since that’s her joint, but this place? It’s starting to be mine, all mine, and she’s my secretary and mail screener. She didn’t like that much. Seems she’s got more important things to do with her life.

Anyway, I said this is a cover reveal, and what better way to kick off Rocktober than with a cover reveal from our very own queen of Rock Fiction, Susan?

Here’s the cover. Drumroll, please?

Is that HAWT, or what? Wait until you read it. Hard to believe this one took Susan years to get right, and it’s probably her best yet. Be warned: it’s gritty and kinda ugly in spots. Sex, drugs, rock and roll, baby. Certain LDS clients of Susan’s shouldn’t get near this one.

Ready for what it’s about?

For T and the rest of Ice Cubes in Hell, it’s a routine night backstage after their set, opening for the notorious Vanessa Kontempt. The party’s in full swing when T walks in, but she’s not in the mood. Not tonight. When she finds groupies raiding her stage clothes and one breaks the heel off one of her favorite boots, things spiral downward. As T confronts the band’s tour manager about the destruction, secrets are revealed. Secrets that might tear the band apart … or bring them closer.

This isn’t out yet — word on that soon — so yeah. Total COVET!!!

Plan to pre-order once the info’s out and pick up your copy. It’ll be the best 99c you spend in a long time!
