The free promo is now over and I consider it a great success. Mindguard made it to the Amazon Top 100 for all free books (peaking - as far as I know - at number 83). It reached number 1 in all its subcategories and made it to number 5 in Science Fiction and number 14 in Science Fiction and Fantasy.
I'm happy and honored that so many of you were interested in Mindguard . I hope you'll enjoy the story and I'm always looking forward to your feedback. I was especially happy to read your e-mails over the last few days. Knowing you actually took time to write to me and tell me that you loved my book is the greatest reward I could ever imagine. I'm so grateful for your support and I'll always struggle to repay it by providing you with the best stories my mind can conjure up.
Speaking of stories, The Vintages is slowly nearing its conclusion, and I'm really excited with how it turned out. I hope you will be too. Barring any unforeseen complications it should be out sometime in late July. I'll send a newsletter announcing its release so if you haven't already you can subscribe to my mailing list and find out the moment I publish it. I plan to have it at 0.99$ for the first week, so that will be a great time to get it before it goes up to 2.99$.
Mindguard will remain at 0.99$ as an entry point into the "New Mindwar" series which will then continue with Ayers (a prequel I'm planning to publish in fall) and The Weixman Fallacy (part three of the regular "timeline").
Other non-Mindguard related projects are in work and I'll reveal more about them in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, I've finished tweaking the cover for The Vintages and fixed its little inconsistencies, so here is the final result:
