Don’t Buy My Book!!

Not yet, anyway. A Thousand Sleepless Nights, my newest novel under my new pen name, Michael King, is available for order from all the major online booksellers (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Christian Book) but please don’t purchase it yet. The book officially releases October 16th and I’m asking folks to please wait until that week to buy the book, whether from an online retailer or a brick and mortar store. We want to concentrate the sales into one week and see if we can bump up the sales rankings.

Now, comes the benefit to you for waiting.

If you buy the book during the week of October 15-20 and email me saying you did so I’ll give you access to a page containing a bunch of free downloads. I’m going on the honor system here, no proof needed . . . I trust you!


Mirror Image: A short story I co-wrote as Mike Dellosso with Aaron Reed. Aaron, a pastor, won the “Write a Short Story With Me” contest I held over the summer. This is the first time the story has been made public. Written in the style of Alfred Hitchcock’s psycho-thrillers, Mirror Image is about a man who discovers he has a double who has a much more exciting life than his. Believing he deserves the life his double is living, he plots to switch places. But reality isn’t always what it appears to be and what Dennis finds isn’t exactly what he expected.

A collection of 5 short essays I wrote as Michel King including:
“The 3 Things That Matter the Most”
“Benefits of Being an Alien”
“Things I’ve Learned from Those Who Have Suffered”
“The Virtues of an Irritant”
“5 Things Suffering Reminds Us Of”

An 84-page journal of some of my most personal thoughts and devotionals written while in the midst of that valley that is cancer.

And just to note: A portion of the proceeds of every book sold in 2012 is being donated to the Colon Cancer Alliance to support their mission of wiping colon cancer off the face of the earth.

Please  help spread the word about this effort by Tweeting, Facebooking, standing on street corners, or whatever. Thank you!

Are you in?

  1. Mike I am in!! I am keeping enough money from my monthly book allowance to buy your book!! The 16th cannot come fast enough!!


  2. I knew that Mike, what I dont know is, the day we purchase online, for me that is on Amazon, do we also post our review? Would that seem odd? I also think I am going to buy one for the Findley Lake Library, since I volunteer there and once we get it, will talk about it with others. Or is that not a good idea?


  3. Cool, will be buying my copy on the 16th (assuming it’ll be on the Kindle then) 🙂


  4. Very excited, Mike. I can’t wait to read your new book and get all the free stuff. YAY!!!


  5. I’ve left a notice to buy your book during the week of Oct. 15-20 on my two FB accounts and Twitter!
