To Arms! To Arms! The Amazon Blitz for Errant King is Upon Us!!

FRIDAY, December 9th between the hours of 6pm--10pm Eastern Time.
 Can you say EPIC?

Greetings, faithful readers! Wayne Thomas Batson here. With Christmas not far away now, I wanted to let you know I've got a new series of fantasy books out.

The Dark Sea Annals, an Epic 7-book Fantasy Series with AMG Publishing. Book 1: The Sword in the Stars came out in 2010, and Book 2: The Errant King just came out last week. So if you loved The Door Within Trilogy or any of my other books, please check out my new series.

If you think you might get The Errant King, please consider, joining our Amazon Blitz! See below!

 Buy Sword in the Stars or The Errant King from on FRIDAY, December 9th between the hours of 6pm--10pm Eastern Time.

I'd like to announce the official Errant King Amazon Blitz! If you've never done a blitz, the concept is to slam Amazon with book orders during a concentrated period of time. This accomplishes two very important things:
1) Tons of orders in a concentrated time will make The Errant King jump up high on Amazon's bestseller's list. This creates high visibility, more sales, and so on.
2) Also, getting tons of orders right around a new book's release date influences the publisher to pump up the marketing and even increase print runs.
Buy Sword in the Stars or The Errant King from on FRIDAY, December 9th between the hours of 6pm--10pm Eastern Time.

I'd like to thank everyone who participates, so if you purchase a copy of Sword in the Stars OR The Errant King during the blitz, and then email me your snail mail address, I'll personalize a special Sword in the Stars/ Errant King bookplate sticker and send it to you. I doesn't matter if you buy one book or fifteen. I'll send as many stickers as you need.

Thanks so much for reading my stories and being so faithful!

Never alone.   

Bestselling Author of The Door Within Trilogy,
Isle of Swords, Isle of Fire,
The Berinfell Prophecies, Sword in the Stars, 
and The Errant King

Hey there,
I am interested in buying a couple books but I do have a question. Will there be any bonus points for joining in the blitz beyond the normal for the Seeker Contest?


WayneThomasBatson said...

Hey, Goldarrow--not sure what you mean. There are definite points for buying a book during the blitz, and depending on how high the ranking gets, it could get pretty lucrative.

Hey Mr. Batson,
I would so totally buy both of your books 100 times over again. Unfortunately I own both of The Dark Sea Annals books. And with Christmas coming I am short on money. I wish you the best of luck!

Best of Luck,

P.S. Both me and my friend bought The Errant King at The Family Christian Bookstore a few days after it came out. It truly is EPIC!!!!

WayneThomasBatson said...

Hey, Jezz thanks so much for getting the books. I am stoked that you're enjoying them. When you're finished, if you have the time, it would be very cool if you could post a review on Amazon or wherever. :-D Thanks again.

I wish I had known about this before I bought the book :( oh well....
Just finished reading it literally a few minutes ago. A purely epic, amazingly good read, Mr. Batson!!! ;)

P.S. I'm already loaning it to my friend at school on Monday. She read Sword in the Stars and loved it :)

I can say epic. Its called THE ERRANT KING!! I have only read a few chapters of it but so far, but it is EPIC!! And I will try to participate in the blitz for you Mr B and, yes for the starseeker points. How many points will we get for participating?

Thanks so much for coming to His Way!!

Is a kindle version going to be released?

Adam Jr said...

Mr Batson, has anyone noticed that the picture you used for the post is an earlier concept? The tail is behind her, not in front of her...

I also recently bought the book, sure wish I'd known about this before. But ohh-well I still can't wait to read it!!

God Bless,

Emma said...

I wish I'd known about this before I got the book. Oh well, I guess I'll have to wait to participate when your next book (should there be a blitz). I don't suppose this would ever count for

I haven't read it yet because I'm getting it for Christmas (I'm sure it will be AWESOME!) but when I do, I'll put a review on so you'll get some Canadian PR.

Adam Jr said...

Mr Batson, I just finished The Errant King and I LOVED it. I especially like Fred the sword. He's pretty funny.

But you are torturing me! How long will I have to wait for the next one to come out?

Is it important to buy them from Amazon directly, or will buying them from other sellers through Amazon still boost the ratings?

Also, if I offer you homemade pumpkin cheesecake, will you come and sign the books personally? :P

WayneThomasBatson said...

Hannah, I think you have to go thru Amazon directly. The "other sellers" offer used or "seconded new" book which don't benefit the author at all. Uhm...and pumpkin cheesecake...tempting!

For those who've already purchased, THANK YOU! Please don't be worried about the blitz. I really appreciate you for reading my books!
