Kindle Scout Results

Concealed_FC_BNGI just wanted to thank everyone who voted for Concealed for a Kindle Scout submission. Unfortunately, the book was not selected for Kindle Press publication.

I got word last  night, and those of you who voted will likely receive an email from Kindle Scout in the next day or so letting you know the book wasn’t selected. However, I will publish the book later this month.  So, here’s the publication schedule for the virus series:

Book 1 – Concealed will publish May 23

Book 2 – Exposed will publish June 14

Book 3 – (Title Forthcoming) will publish Aug. 3

There’s a slightly larger gap between books two and three of the series because I’ll be publishing an unrelated book in July (Scented, but I’ll talk more about that in a couple of weeks). But, by summer’s end, the entire series will be available. While the book is ready for publication, I’m going to be sending out a few more Advanced Review copies of book one and scheduling some first week New Release advertising. So, pushing the release date to May 23 gives me some time to set that up.

Thanks again for your votes and your encouragement. I look forward to releasing Concealed into the world next month. I’ll set up the pre-order for the book early next week. Also, check back here on Sunday, as I’ll be revealing the cover for book two of the virus series.

    Darn. The email was in my inbox this morning. I thought it would be picked up for sure. From what I’ve read, it’s all good publicity for the publication so good luck with that. I’m sure many people who read the sample will want to buy ‘Concealed’

      Thanks, Dale. I’m hopeful I’ll get a little boost when they email out to the people who voted for it. But, as they say, if it doesn’t open, it’s not your door. Feeling really happy with the book. I imagine Kindle Scout editors make the picks as a group, and I feel like there had to be at least one person at the table who advocated for my book. My goal is to make sure that person feels mighty vindicated in about a month. 🙂

  3. I’m sorry, RJ. I have no doubt is was close.
