The Night Walk Men // unBound and Determined

To everyone the last week who helped spread the word about my novelette, The Night Walk Men, I want to extend my hand to you. Thanks to all of you --you know who you are-- for helping to push this story as high as [EDIT] #3 on the Amazon Kindle Top 100.

It also topped out as #1 for Suspense fiction and #1 in Occult fiction before it began its retreat from the top ten.

In about a week's time, this short book of mine has been downloaded over 34,000 times by readers on Amazon. Together with downloads from Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Sony and a few other online stores, the short tale of Obsidion, Monserrat and the other Night Walkers, has been snagged in digital form a total of over 44,000 times.

That blows my mind.

I want to thank everyone who had a hand in getting those copies out to readers and everyone who has shared a tweet, a Facebook mention, or a kind word about the story itself. Not everyone digs it, but most people seem to think it's some of the best writing I've done.

And I'm not done. Not by a long shot with this world.

Have I mentioned this story is merely the prologue to a multi-layered, ongoing saga? The first book is coming along nicely and I hope to have some of it to preview shortly. In the meantime, I offer my thanks and appreciation for this milestone and hope you'll have a look at some of my other stories.

  1. Wonderful; I love seeing blogger world making a difference.

    Another book to put on my list of Jason McIntyre reads. I've bought 3 of your books, but haven't had time to read them yet *hangs head in shame* I will though; and I'm sure I will enjoy this novella too.

  2. Ah, Donna, you're wonderful. Whether you get to reading them or not, I thank you for endlessly dropping into this site and sharing your wisdom and support.

    It is exciting to see tweets and Facebook mentions help to make a difference, isn't it? A year ago I might have scoffed at such an idea.

    Get The Night Walk Men from Amazon soon -- I have no idea when or if that site will slap a price back on it (that is, of course, if the Kindle format is your format of choice. The story is free almost everywhere else on the web).

  3. My goodness, that's a whole lot of downloads! What a great treat for your readers - those who've read your work already, and those who will be introduced to it with "The Night Walk Men."

    Congratulations, Jason! Keep them coming!
