The Golden Crystal

The Golden Crystal was released already, but you can buy the paperback version now — and get lots of freebies and swag for FREE!

(Or, of course, you can grab the very attractively-priced Kindle version!)

Want fast-paced action?

Adventure, a lá National Treasure or The Da Vinci Code?

Like thrilling, high-stakes plot lines?

Then The Golden Crystal is for you. 

The Golden Crystal is a full-length (~100,000 words) novel that will feel comfortable to readers of Dan Brown, Matthew Reilly, James Rollins, Clive Cussler, JF Penn, JA Konrath, and a whole lot of others.

It’s about ancient mysteries, and the secrets surrounding them.

It’s about epic around-the-world adventure, featuring exotic locations like the Lost City of Petra, The Great Pyramid of Giza, and Easter Island.

It’s about one man trying to stop an evil corporation from unleashing hell on Earth.

So, now for the freebies part: 

If you purchase the paperback version at any point between right now and forever, I’m going to give you:

  • All ebook formats of the book: .MOBI, .ePUB, and .PDF
  • signed bookplate to go inside the cover of The Golden Crystal
  • The first 10 chapters of the audiobook version

Here’s a snippet of the audio file.

Again, I’m only offering this for the first two weeks of the launch, and it’s at no extra cost to you.

Just grab the paperback from Amazon, send me the receipt via email to [email protected], and you’ll get a link to the included extras!

Amazon sets the price, so there’s no telling what it’ll be when you get there, but as of this writing, it’s hovering at around $13.

1. Why are you sending us free stuff if we buy your book? 

You’ve probably been reading my blog for a while, or I know you personally, or you’re a friend or family member. I want to thank you for supporting me and this book — it’s been a dream come true!

2. Why do you care about sales? 

I don’t — I mainly care about not being obscure. I want more people to find The Golden Crystal and share it with friends. However, I need your help to “break into” the Amazon ranking system:

Basically, part of the way Amazon’s ranking system works is by measuring “past 30 day” sales. If I can sell enough copies each week/month, there will be more chance for the book to rise through the charts! The more sales, the more people find the book, and the more people I can reach!

3. Why don’t you just give me the book for free? 

Printing on paper and then shipping it to people costs money, so I can’t do that. I’d love to, believe me!

4. Can I get a nameplate if I’m outside the U.S.?

Of course! After you buy and send the receipt, you’ll get a link to an online form — you can put whatever shipping address you’d like there, and I’ll take care of the cost of getting it to you.

5. What format is the audiobook? 

Right now, the preview is in .mp3 format (no DRM), so you can literally pop it on any device that plays music. The final audiobook is sold through Audible/Amazon, and is in their proprietary format (with DRM).

Have more questions? 

Send me an email. I answer every single one.
