Book 2 Is Here



Let me start this by saying, I’m sorry! The n00b Warriors: Book 1 was released nearly two years ago, and many of you have been waiting about that long to find out what happened. A HUGE thank you for both the support and patience of each of you—this book has always been a bit of a side project for me, and I have bills and whatnot to pay that often get in the way of writing.

That said: The n00b Warriors: Rebellion (Book Two) is here! You can download it now from Kindle, Nook, Kobo and, of course, iBooks. Some eBook sellers are a bit quicker than others, so if you don't see it, then just wait a day or two. You can also buy a physical version of both books on Amazon.com.

When the first book came out, I promised a lot of you that it would be free. I wish I could keep that promise, but a lot has changed with regards to eBook contracts. Offering it free would mean removing it completely from iBooks and all other book channels. It’s priced at $2.99, which is still pretty darn cheap—people pay 10 bucks to see a movie that last two hours—reading gets you so many more hours of entertainment.

What I hope will happen is each of you will buy this book today if possible, which will help drive up the sales ranking so more people will find out about the book. If you are feeling in an extra good mood, reviews are always nice—fingers crossed, good reviews! Be kind to other readers and don't post spoilers...as tempting as I'm sure it will be.

All that said, I know a lot of you can’t afford even $2.99; there’s no shame in that. Don’t let money stand in the way of reading this book—email me if you can’t afford the download and I’ll figure out a way to get it to you. I have a very limited number of codes that can be used…but I stress, this is only for people who really can’t afford the book, because by limited, I mean less than a dozen.

I’m sure all of you are eager to get reading, so I will end here…except to say Book 3 is currently being written. I really feel I can’t get it done quicker…then again I thought that about book 2!

  3. Just out of curiosity, why don't you distribute it via torrent?

    There's no need for servers, and it makes it easily and freely available.

    1. Lots of reasons, James. The biggest is there has never been a demand, and having it out their free does screwy things with the places that do sell it--some get weird when they see it floating around the Internet...if one customer were to complain about it being free when they just paid for it then they could remove it from being sold entirely.

  4. Hey, how do I get in contact with you? I'm still in school and my parents don't let me buy anything with real money, so I'd really appreciate a free copy if you can Mr. Douglas.
