Rob Wells is a guy who is down on his luck. Very down on his luck. Not too long ago he was diagnosed with a severe panic disorder. Not that long afterward he lost his job. (He actually lost his job on the anniversary of when he lost his last job.)
He's a writer, like us. He wrote a YA novel called Variant. It's done pretty well. I've only read the first chapter (I can't read the book this month, but I wanted a taste of it) and it's pretty good. I get the feeling it'll only get better once I continue reading it.
His fans are organizing a surprise BOOK BOMB today. They're going to buy a copy of his book for friends or get their friends to buy a copy of his book all on the same day: TODAY, 11/10/11. By doing this some sort of magic is supposed to happen with his ratings, he'll have more exposure, and more people will buy his book.
I thought I'd share this Book Bomb with you all today. I'll be buying myself a Kindle copy and my friend one, as well, since she's also down on her luck and could use a good book to read.
Here's a more detailed description of the Book Bomb and Rob:
And here is his book:
I should add if any of you know of Dan Wells, (author of the John Cleaver series,) Rob is his brother.
Update: Rob Wells' book has jumped to #3 in Amazon's Mover's and Shakers. He's gone from a Sales rank of #6,068, to a sales rank of #106 In a matter of hours. Good for him!
I got it... if it has any resemblance to Lord of the Flies, I'll give it a try.
I loved Lord of the Flies. I think it was one of my favorite books in high school. I bought myself and a friend a copy of Variant today, but I can't read mine yet. I'm looking forward to what my friend says about it though.
I read the John Clever series. I will have to check this one out, too, then. :D
