David P. Forsyth's Blog: The Sovereign Spirit Saga

September 17, 2014

I have been remiss in following the reviews of my books on Goodreads. Since most of them are only for sale on Amazon, getting good reviews (and I am busy writing more), I rarely look at the stats here. Imagine my chagrin when I noticed that the trilogy edition of my zombie books has a much lower rating here than on Amazon. :(

So this post is a call out to my many friends and handful of fans. If you have read and enjoyed Voyage of the Dead and Flotilla of the Dead and Deluge of the Dead individually, please consider leaving a collective review for Sovereign Spirit Saga: Volume One here on Goodreads.

I am currently wrapping up the sequel to Sedulity (Book One) Impact and have another SSS book in the works. Thanks again to all the readers who have read and enjoyed my stories. Your support supplies the fuel for the Sovereign Spirit, Sedulity, and other vessels that are coming your way soon.

PS: I'm turning 50 next month and am excited about what the future holds in store. Get ready for more exciting voyages! :)

"Sedulity" is on a 99 cent Countdown Deal today and tomorrow. It has earned a 4.5 Star average on 87 reviews while spending 6 weeks as the #1 Bestseller in Sea Adventures and high on the Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction charts since release on March 7th. Now it's time to reach an even wider audience. "Deep Impact" meets "The Poseidon Adventure" in this fast paced apocalyptic thriller inspired by "Lucifer's Hammer." It's not a matter of if, but when a disaster like this one will strike.

Sedulity (Book One) Impact has been the Amazon #1 Bestseller in Sea Adventures and near the top of the Post-Apocalyptic Science Fiction charts for more than five weeks now. With an impressive 4.6 Star average on 69 reviews, "Sedulity" seems to appeal to a wider audience than my previous zombie apocalypse series. However, it was fans of the "Sovereign Spirit Saga" who drove "Sedulity" up the charts where it could be noticed. I am deeply grateful to all of those who helped make this happen.

"Sedulity" is a different type of apocalyptic story than the zombie books I wrote. So it is gratifying that so many of you took a chance on something different, even more so that most of you seem to like it! I am currently working on "Sedulity #2 Aftershock" and Volume 2 of the Sovereign Spirit Saga. I hope you will continue to find both series entertaining. Thanks again and Happy Easter.

I've been remiss in posting to this blog, so here is an update. The Sovereign Spirit Saga continues to garner attention. "Voyage of the Dead" was the December read at Zombie Book of the Month Club on Facebook. The prequel collection of "Interludes in Hell" (which includes "Lukan") has also been well received, as has the trilogy edition of "Sovereign Spirit Saga: Volume One."

I was delighted to receive an awesome review for Voyage of the Dead on Amazon this week from the Bestselling apocalyptic author of The Old Man and the Wasteland, Nick Cole. Let me conclude by sharing it:

"5.0 out of 5 stars A Zombie Epic like no other!, January 27, 2014
By Nick Cole (United States) -
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Voyage of the Dead - Book One Sovereign Spirit Saga
The game many people are playing these days is the name your friends, tools, weapons and plans for survival in case of Zombocalypse game. This book takes that intellectual exercise and runs with it. Or should I say 'sets sail with it'? Imagine there are no rules, no limits to spending, no preparation that can't be made if the world is going to go down in a mass of crawling, staggering, shambling, gnashing corpses tomorrow. Well that's what the author does and he does it well combining technical and tactical knowledge with a sense of drama and urgency that depart from the standard zombie epic in a high powered speedboat loaded with guns pushing Eighty over open water. The fall of Baja and Southern California are depicted with a fresh practicality that draws the reader into this boat cruise through hell as the Everyman hero who hit the lottery just before the end of everything cobbles together a flotilla of marines, survivors and hotheads to survive just one more day against a world gone corpse-raving mad. Buy the ticket and take this ride!"

Thanks, Nick! And I hope you all check out his excellent apocalyptic series: The Wasteland Saga: Three Novels: Old Man and the Wasteland, The Savage Boy, The Road is a River

Looking for a special Christmas gift for someone far away? Someone who likes to read? A person who likes action adventures and zombies? No need to go out shopping or pay for postage. Give them the "Sovereign Spirit Saga: Volume One" (three full novels with a 4.9 Star rating) for only $5.99! Just go to http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EMNJUD4 and click "Give as a Gift" on the right side of the screen. Input the recipient's email and select the date you want it delivered (e.g. December 25), then add a personal message. Presto! One less gift on your list! You can do this repeatedly for all your friends!

Note: you can also send them the link to download Voyage of the Dead for FREE, but it's much better for them to find the whole trilogy waiting in the inbox on Christmas morning.

Voyage of the Dead is now FREE at all major e-book outlets (Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, Kobo, iTunes, etc.). It will remain free through Christmas, so please consider giving the link as a gift to a friend who might enjoy the book. Those who don't have e-readers can also download a free Kindle reader app for any computer/mobile device or smartphone. Turning your friends and family on to e-books is a great gift, especially when the book is free.

Are you looking to actually buy a gift for someone that loves to read? The 800 page trilogy edition of Sovereign Spirit Saga: Volume One is discounted to $5.99 on Amazon and can be sent as an e-gift with delivery on Christmas. This edition is less expensive than buying Flotilla of the Dead and Deluge of the Dead separately (even if they get Voyage of the Dead for free).

Already have the first three books in the saga? You won't want to miss Interludes in Hell. This collection of three prequel novellas fills in some shocking events before and during the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse. Learn how and why it happened and get to some of the recurring characters a little better too. Buy it now to make my Christmas brighter, or wait until December 23-26 when it will be free again on Amazon and it will be my gift to you! Tell your friends and family too.

If you are a traditionalist, or know a reader who is, Voyage of the Dead and Flotilla of the Dead are also available in PAPERBACK now. The best price is from Amazon.com, unless you happen to be at the Long Beach Comic and Horror Con this coming weekend. I'll be selling and signing paperbacks in the Mysterious Galaxy booth on Saturday (Nov. 23) after participating in an author panel titled "Location, Location, Location."

I really want to thank those of you who follow my blog and wait patiently for my next book. Volume 2 of the saga (three more books) will be released in 2014. So have a great holiday season and look ahead to next year!

LUKAN will be FREE on Friday and Saturday (Sept. 20-21) only on Amazon. This short (11K word - approx. 1 hour) read sets the stage for the zombie apocalypse described in Voyage of the Dead and the rest of the Sovereign Spirit Saga: Volume One.

Fans of the series will want to read Lukan's horrifying story to fill in some missing pieces from the first books and get a few hints of where the Sovereign Spirit might be headed next. New readers will be compelled to see where this story leads.

The newly released 800 page "Sovereign Spirit Saga: Volume One" has also been reduced in price to $5.99. So this is a great time to spread the word!

Thanks to everyone who has followed the saga so far. There is a lot more in the works. Another new release is coming soon!
