German readers – Jacks Magische Bohnen (published here in the US as Jack’s Magic Beans) is now available for Kindle. Click here to download it and start reading immediately.
There is also a possibility of me doing a German and Austrian book-signing tour in 2014. I haven’t been to Germany since a visit to Kiel in 1986, so I’m hoping this happens.
And for those of you in English-speaking countries, Jack’s Magic Beans is available in paperback, Kindle, and Nook. Click here to order.
Eingesperrt (The Cage) is on sale now in Germany in both hardcover and for the Kindle. Click here to order the hardcover and here for the Kindle edition.
The U.S. paperback and digital editions of The Cage will be on sale later this month from Deadite.
This is spinning out of the comments on yesterday’s Blog post regarding piracy. Of note to readers in Germany, the following titles are available for Kindle: Auferstehung (The Rising), Stadt der Toten (City of the Dead), Am Ende der Strasse (Darkness on the Edge of Town), Totes Meer (Dead Sea), Kill Whitey (Kill Whitey), and Die Verschollenen (Castaways).
The only one currently available for the Nook in German is Kill Whitey. I’m told that many more will follow for both Kindle and Nook in 2012.
On sale now in Germany and Austria is Stadt De Toten – the sequel to Auferstehung*. It is available in both mass market paperback and the Kindle. And don’t forget, Auferstehung is available in both paperback and for the Kindle, as well.
*For English speaking readers, that’s City of the Dead and The Rising.
Following up on some previously-posted items.
1. My foreign rights agent, the super-heroine Betty Anne Crawford, reports my original German publisher, Otherworld Verlag, has been bought by Ueberreuter, the largest trade publisher in Austria. My latest German release through OV was the trade hardcover of Kill Whitey, which you should now find everywhere in Germany and Austria, since Ueberreuter has more distribution capabilities.
2. We talked a few weeks ago about serial-plagiarist, con-artist, thief, and possible llama-molester David Boyer. Well, now a group of authors are taking the battle to Amazon.com. I urge all of you to get involved. You should also continue to support the efforts of “B-Thoughtful” and author Rick Moore, who have been spearheading this fight.
3. Fear Net interviewed country-music’s Kasey Lansdale, who, among other things, talked a little bit about the Castaways movie and revealed that I’m secretly a nice guy.
4. A few days ago, I talked about the strange transition to veteran and mentor. That’s why reading things like this makes me feel very weird. (And it’s okay, Alyn. I nearly creamed my shorts the 1st time I met Bentley Little).
For my German readers (whose numbers now almost rival their American counterparts), I’m happy to announce that Eingesperrt (The Cage) is now available for pre-order. If you can’t reserve it at your local bookstore, you can order it here.
And don’t forget that you can order all of my other German editions, as well. Click here.
Promotional cartoon by Italian author and artist Danilo Giovannelli for I Vermi Conquistatori (the Italian edition of my novel The Conqueror Worms). Speaking of which, scientists have discovered “worms from hell” living two miles beneath the Earth. I warned you about this, just like I warned you about fucking around with particle accelerators and dead things.
My foreign rights agent and all-around-super-heroine Betty writes: “Just thought you would like to know that Auferstehung (The Rising) is #1 on Amazon Germany’s bestseller list for horror.” Thanks to all of my readers in Germany for making this happen. It is my sincere hope that I make it over there next year for a signing and to meet all of you.
I Vermi Conquistatori (The Conqueror Worms) is available now in Italy wherever books are sold. Click the cover to purchase (or to see a larger version).
Die Verschollenen is available now in Germany and Austria wherever books are sold (from Heyne). Click here to order online. Die Verschollenen was published in the U.S. and Canada as Castaways. It is a tribute of sorts to the late, great Richard Laymon. German reviewers say that “Brian Keene ist der neue Richard Laymon” and who are we to argue with that? Special thanks to my German audience, who are just as loyal and gracious as my American readers.
