Anyone who has published a book in the last few years knows that writing is the least of it. Nowadays you have to decide if you’ll self-publish or try to get a publishing house to carry your work, and then you have to do all media stuff to promote your masterpiece.
So forgive me if I sound like a vacuum cleaner salesman trying to sell you a Roomba . I hate doing the promotion stuff. I really do, but if I don’t, I won’t sell books, and if I don’t sell books I can’t pay the rent…
So here is what’s happening. I am promoting Thirst starting tomorrow. The Kindle version will sell for $0.99 but it’s only for a couple of days. To make it worth your while, if you buy Thirst, I’ll send you my other book, L’Amérique free of charge. Notice I am not advertising a free gift, which is a godawful use of the language; I have some pride. Anyway, buy Thirst, let me know your platform (Mobi, epub, PDF, or Word) send me your email address and I’ll send you an online version of L’Amérique.
End of the pitch. I would truly appreciate it if you’d tell your friends and neighbors, your family and workmates. I need to sell a bunch of books over the coming week so Amazon takes notice.
Some of you may receive this request on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, as well as through this email. I apologize for the duplicated messages.
Thank you ever so much, Thierry
PS, at the risk of touting my own horn, Thirst got some really good reviews—
I really enjoyed this book. The main character is flawed and complex. And many of the supporting characters have a rich backstory. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good thriller.
What a find! I usually don’t like the “faced-paced, hard-boiled” school of crime fiction, but this book is one fat exception to that rule. The author really knows his business and writes clear, compelling sentences (not too common these days), as well as creates very colorful characters. Maybe it’s just me, but I also found the book very funny in parts.
Forgive the cliche, but I couldn’t put this book down.
This is an amazing book – Sagnier plots it like a thriller, writes it like an angel. Half way through I thought I had it figured out, but then came plot twist after plot twist, all of it logical, all of it unexpected. An amazing ride, fast but never slick.
