TODAY is the DAY...Isle of Fire Official Release!

Hi, all! Just a reminder that Tuesday, September 9th is the OFFICIAL release date for Isle of Fire. I know that the long-awaited sequel has appeared in some stores, but I really appreciate those who are willing to wait and purchase Isle of Fire from Amazon on the release day. I'm hoping to make a huge leap on Amazon's bestseller list that day and start a wonderful cycle of visibility for the whole Isle of Swords/Isle of Fire duology.

And for those in the Treasure Hunt, remember there are big time points available! Thanks so much to my readers.

Here's what you do:

STEP 1: Go to my sidebar where you'll see links to all my books.

STEP 2: Click once on the Isle of Fire cover. This will cause a small Isle of Fire window to open.

STEP 3: Click on the link that says "This book at Amazon." This will take you directly to Amazon's Isle of Fire Page. (Note: It's very important that you go to Amazon through my link. In that way, I can verify sales traffic from my site to Amazon, as well as, earn a few Amazon credits.)

STEP 4: Purchase as many copies of Isle of Fire as you want. My mom suggests you buy 6-8 copies. ;-)

STEP 5: Forward your Amazon receipt dated 9/9/08 to me. My email is: batguy21784(at)yahoo(dot)com. Of course use the symbol @ for at and a . for dot. lol

STEP 6: Along with the receipt, notice what Isle of Fire's sales ranking is. Right now it's at 44,000th. In your receipt eMail, please include what the sales # is at the time of your purchase.

STEP 7: Check back to Amazon's Isle of Fire page throughout the day and see if Isle of Fire climbs to 100th or better. If so, much bonus points for any Treasure Hunter contestants who makes a purchase!

Thanks so much for being wonderful readers and for spreading the word!

Wow, first to post!

I saw it! I was at Family Christian looking at Ryann Watters and the King's Sword (which I bought), turned around, and FREAKED OUT!

Sweet!

Jordan said...

Yay! I've been waiting for this for awhile!

If I buy Isle of Fire through the side bar on the right of your blog, is there extra points in that?

I am SO buying it. I got hooked beyond rescue after reading the first one.

This is Wayne Thomas Batson. My silly browser won't let me post from School.

Yes, Jon, if you purchase multiple copies of Isle of Fire on the 9th, EACH purchase counts for FULL points!

Never alone.

Aw man. I'm pretty mad right now because I don't have any money right now! Other wise I'd love to buy Isle of Fire on the release date so I can get extra points... AND just because I'm dying to read it... but it looks like I'll have to wait until my birthday and/or Christmas swings around to get my hands on it. :( sniff sniff.

The rank is lower now!! :)

#31,278 in Books - Waiting for the 9th. Waiting for the 9th. Hey does anyone want to get in a group to read a sample of my 300 page book I am finishing. I would love opinions?

Ian said...

*sigh* I think I'm pretty much out of the contest at this point...may as well face it, I just haven't got the resources to win one of these Treasure Hunts! Although maybe I could buy the book online...

Oh man! September 9 is TOMORROW!!! I've gotta do something.....:O

:)Ian(:

TODAY IS THE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jordan said...

Well, I'm not in your treasure hunt contest, but I checked it out anyway. I've added it to my wishlist on Amazon! (I don't usually buy books, because my family often gives them for birthday gifts)

butterfli_1 said...

Yay, I bought Isle of Fire!!! Now, come on, fellow Treasure Hunters, get its sales number to #100!!! Doesn't 500 bonus points sound tempting??? =D

butterfli_1 said...

Hey b.d. eastman, can I read your book? It would be fun to check it out--I love to write too! I'm trying to create my first novel, but I face issues such as...no clue what to write about!?!

B. D. Eastman said...

Purchases:

Isle of Fire:
200 points for purchase through your link plus 500 because it dipped below 100 = "87" plus

Isle of Swords:
100 points for purchase plus 50 for buying through the link

B. D. Eastman said...

Hi Butterfli - I saw your message on mr. Batson's blog so I thought I'd try to contact you. My blog is

WayneThomasBatson said...

BD, I never saw it dip below 4,300th. When did you look today?

Still, everyone 4,300 is really strong considering Amazon actively sells over 3 million books.

Still 5 more hours to drive that number down! Thanks for everyone's willingness to help!

S. J. Deal said...

I bought a copy. :-D

Shyeloh said...

I ordered it!!! I hope it gets here soon. I'll send the receipt shortly.

B. D. Eastman said...

Mr. Batson,

Sorry I was reading the part that showed 87 as the fiction book rank. I thought you just wanted the book rank. Not the total overall rank. Shoot maybe if someone would just buy one more copy it would drop even farther!! :)

I included the total ranking thing in my email. Sorry if I got anyones hopes up.

BD

WayneThomasBatson said...

Still dropping! Isle of Fire is: #2,426 in Books as of 8:55 EDT. How low will it go? ;-)

jon m. said...

I bought a copy!!!

cson said...

#1,628! Hurry up and buy it somebody!!

WayneThomasBatson said...

Wow, a day later and IOF is still showing at 4,000th. That's a pretty good residual showing.

Tell everyone what: I'm going to extend the bonus period until Sunday the 14th. If IOF hits 100th or better, the bonus points still go to all who've bought.

Never alone.

Ian said...

Yay! that means I might have enough time to persuade my parents to let me buy it!!!

Whoa, we're losing it people. #8,344 and falling.

B. D. Eastman said...

Don't you mean rising!

Anonymous said...

Ooh! #6,863! It's going back up! (finally)

Anonymous said...

I mean down :D *thanks BD*

B. D. Eastman said...

LOL - No worries.

So I made a really fun mistake when I ordered my books. I had them sent to where I used to live in Illinois and now I am in Colorado. Whoops. So either way the shipment will come but now I am delayed in reading a bit longer. Stink.

Check out my blog!

S. J. Deal said...

It came! Now I'll have to send it down to you to get it autographed. :-P
