C'mon you apes, do you wanna READ forever?!
« on: October 02, 2020, 11:04:47 AM »
This was the reaction when I told people I wanted to write a book about an outlaw who discovers a lost world entrance in the wild frontier of the Wyoming TerritoriesÖ. And that there was dinosaurs in it:


This was the reaction when I told people Iíd finished the book and people began to read and critique it:


This was how I felt when I finished the publication process:


And this is how I feel today, with the book finally released on Amazon.


So look at this! Here it is in all itís glory! Woop!

Amazon Link:

https://www.amazon.com/West-Prehistoric-Erik-Testerman-ebook/dp/B08JJWGTZF/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

Itís 1885.

Jedidiah Huckleberry Smith spent his entire life searching for the raider who mutilated him as a child. Finally, giving up on a trail long grown cold, he leaves his outlaw past behind and starts over in a remote town in Wyoming.

One dark night his ranch is attacked by a mysterious and ferocious beast from a world lost to time. Only Jedidiahís savagery and skills save him.

Now, teaming up with a beautiful but naÔve paleontologist, they stand between his adopted town and its destruction by an army of barbaric prehistoric apes and dinosaurs. But Jedís past has come back to haunt him. The man he searched for is discovered in a position of power, and Jed must chooseÖ

Revenge for his past, or the salvation of strangers.

Either way, bullets will fly, and blood will be spilled.

If you buy it, Iíd love you forever if you leave an Amazon or Goodreads review. Even a one sentence review that says, ďThis book doesnít suckĒ means a lot and helps sell more books in the future. (How many times have you looked at a book with no or few reviews and passed on it because no one else risked reading it first? I know I have.)

And since the sequel is already completed, well Ė the more this one sells the more likely the publisher will pick it up. If this one doesnít sellÖ no sequel folks. Itís just not worth the investment by the publisher. So Iím holding the sequel hostage. MWhahaha.

Right now the Kindle version is available for either the price of $0 if you have Kindle Unlimited, or $3.99 if you donít. The Paperback is $13.95. (Sorry, I didnít pick the price. I was really hoping itíd be under $10.)

Personally, Iím gonna buy about 20 of them. And guess who is getting an autographed copy for Christmas? (My entire extended family!)

And finally, this is how I feel as I try to ignore the awesomeness of this moment and work on the third book in the series:

Someone at work asked me to sum up the book in one sentence.

I said John Wayne from The Searchers meets the Lost World with a touch of John Wick thrown in for fun.
