That Pretty Little Pre-Order Button!

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

DARK_WATERS-title only

I'm absolutely thrilled to annouce that the Kindle edition of DARK WATERS, the next book in the Jeff Resnick Mystery series, is now available for pre-order on Amazon.  (The book will be released on October 1st. And fear not--the Trade Paperback edition will be available for pre-order in the next few days.)

I feel extremely lucky that Amazon offered me this exciting opportunity.  Pre-orders are what make or break a book in terms of bestsellers list.  Will I hit one of lists because of it?  Probably not, but this will certainly help give the book a welcome boost.

And I'm going to tease you, too.  To see the blurb and the fantastic cover done by Pat Ryan Graphics (and let me tell you, it may be the very best cover I've ever had), you'll have to go visit Amazon.

Then...come back here and tell me what you think.  (It's okay, the Amazon link above will open a new window so you don't even have to lose this one.)

All I can tell you is, I'm one very happy author.  And what would make me even happier is for you to pre-order and then read DARK WATERS.

P.S.  Several weeks from now you'll be able to pre-order for Smashwords, iTunes and Sony, too.

That is an intriguing cover. It is very ominous. The plot sounds awesome too. Will have to wait for the paperback pre-order, I'm an old fashioned, hold the book in my hand and turn the pages reader. But will definately order.

I just pre-ordered Dark Waters. Can't wait! I love the Jeff Resnick books. And I love the cover, too - so forboding the picture alone sends chills up and down my spine.

That is an awesome cover. I do not have a Kindle yet although a couple of friends have hinted they might give me one for my birthday this month. If they do, I intend to start getting several of your books on the kindle. I can hardly wait.

Even more anxious to read the next Jeff Resnick story...oh yes! :-)
