What a crazy month! Dahmerville hit #1 in New Releases for Amazon's YA Detective category and is still holding strong at #2 almost 3 weeks later! Considering the number of books that are constantly being released, I think that's a pretty great feat for an indie novel, and I have to thank everyone who picked up a copy and gave a star rating or review on Amazon and GoodReads!

I can't tell you how important those reviews are for the little guys like me, trying to break through Amazon's (broken) algorithms. Lots of lessons were learned, but there is some pretty great satisfaction in seeing your book come back as the #1 result when you search "YA SERIAL KILLER". Is anyone using that? Who knows, but I'll be at the top if they do and it's a hell of a lot better than being somewhere on Page 5.

In summary - PLEASE RATE AND REVIEW!! It's the best way for the book to find more of the readers who will enjoy it, and it's the perfect Halloween read, so NOW is the time! 🖤

OK - Now to the giveaway details!!

When I say this is the hardest I've ever worked in my life, I mean it. The countless hours that went into writing this novel, rewriting and editing, promoting, advertising and even working with Tim on the cover, was one of the most difficult and rewarding experiences of my life. I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity to create this work and get it out for you to read and intensely excited for the next book that's on its way in the next few months.

Thank you SO MUCH for honoring my work by reading it and going on this fun journey with me - straight from my heart and brain, out onto the page!

Stay safe, stay tuned, and keep reading!
