For those of you new to this, a Book Bomb is when I pick out a good book, where the author could use some more publicity, and then we get as many people as possible to buy it on the same day, to push it as high as possible in the Amazon bestseller rankings. The higher we get it, the more new people see it, the more exposure the writer gets.
That’s a normal Book Bomb. I want this one to be our Cyber Nuclear Book Bomb! (it’ll make sense once you read the book, trust me) But this is a very special Book Bomb. I’m asking all of my fans to share this and spread the word, and as you read on I hope you can see why I think it is important.
Zach was a very good friend of mine and one of the all around coolest people I’ve ever met. He finished the rough draft of this novel three days before he died suddenly from a pulmonary embolism.
He was truly an extraordinary man. I wrote about his life here: http://monsterhunternation.com/2016/01/18/in-memory-of-zach-hill/
I got to read an early version, and it is really good. I’m not just saying that because Zach was my friend (because I would totally lie for him!) but I don’t need to, because this book rocks. It’s everything that Zach thought was pure distilled awesome in book form.
It’s the story of a heavy metal singing android super star, who becomes an assassin during a cyberpunk apocalypse. Zach lived in Japan, loved the culture, the people, and the music, and it shows. It’s ninjas, and bullet bikes, and gun fights, and jet packs, and killer robots, and lots and lots of heavy metal. This book is Zach and everything he loved.
And that’s why I want as many people as possible to see this, so they can get a glimpse into the fun, neat, guy that some of us were lucky enough to know in real life.
I don’t ask my fans for many favors, but this time I am. Please spread the word. This is a good book, and I want people to read it.
Lots of big authors publicly state their desire to give new authors a leg up. Larry Correia is one of the few who walks the talk in an unmistakable, materially verifiable way. I know. Larry held a Book Bomb for my first novel, so I’ve seen the king-making power of his fanbase.
Larry went above and beyond to help launch my career. I can never repay that monumental act of kindness, but I will do my best to pay the favor forward to his departed friend.
I humbly ask my cherished readers to support today’s Sakura BOOK BOMB. Just so you know I won’t ask you to do what I wouldn’t do myself, I’ve already purchased the book. Go and do likewise for the International Lord of Hate!
