Kindle Giveaway Blog Tour: Scott Nicholson

I’m pleased to be apart of Scott Nicholson’s Kindle blog tour!

Check out his other stops for more chances to enter for the Kindle giveaways.

scottlandsailorTwelve novels published. Five short-story collections. Two screenplays and counting. My first translated self-published e-book. My first novel collaboration. A young-adult series underway.
A busy year. A lot of words.
And plenty more to put out.
The 90-day blog tour has been a lot of fun but a lot of work—the equivalent of a novel in extra writing. So one of the first orders of business is to collect all the posts into a non-fiction book called “90 Days of Nightmares: A Writer’s Journey.” I’ll probably sell it for 99 cents for Kindle and Nook and offer it free at my web site.
I have enough short stories for three more collections and I will be releasing them with a couple of bonus guest stories and other extra material in each, and these will likely be 99-cent specials.
My thriller Liquid Fear, a novel dealing with bioethics, is about 25 percent done, and it’s more in the mold of Disintegration and The Skull Ring. It’s been calling out to me and will probably be the next project, depending upon what else happens with my other books. And PS Publishing is soon releasing the signed, limited-edition hardcover of my paranormal mystery Transparent Lovers.
I’ve started both the next book in the October Girls paranormal-romance AsIDielYing2series and the sequel to As I Die Lying, so they should be good counterbalance to the heavier Liquid Fear. And J.R. Rain and I will likely continue the Cursed! series if readers want more. Of course, I’ll be putting out the rest of my screenplays, and Ted at Dellaster Design is working on formatting comics for Kindle and Nook. And the children’s book If I Were Your Monster is being proofed and should be out in a week or so, and artist Lee Davis and I are already kicking around another book.
The point of all this isn’t to brag, though I do take pride in my work. The point is that you’re determining what I am writing next. Disintegration is my biggest e-book hit, and though I do want to write the third book in the Littlefield series and bring back the sheriff from The Red Church and Drummer Boy, I will let that wait a little while. Mysteries and thrillers fare better than supernatural novels for the most part, and if I have just as much fun writing all of it, why not write the stuff you like best?
On the promotional front, I’ll keep sending out review copies to bloggers, but we all need a break from Scott Nicholson. Check my web site for special combo deals on signed paperbacks, and also, beginning Dec. 1, I am giving a free e-book version with any signed paper book order, so you can have one for the shelf and one for the e-reader of your choice. And I’ll be back in the spring with one big promo blitz and giveaway with whatever book is ready for release.
So consider this an informal poll of what you would like to see next from me. While it may come down to whatever calls to me the loudest, your opinion is important to me, too.
After all, as I’ve said repeatedly, in this new publishing era, you are the boss.


Scott Nicholson is author of 12 novels, including the YA paranormal romance October Girls and the thrillers Disintegration, As I Die Lying, Speed Dating with the Dead, Drummer Boy, Forever Never Ends, The Skull Ring, Burial to Follow, and They Hunger. His revised novels for the U.K. Kindle are Creative Spirit, Troubled, and Solom. He’s also written four comic series, six screenplays, and more than 60 short stories. His story collections include Ashes, Curtains, The First, Murdermouth: Zombie Bits, and Flowers.

The Kindle Giveaway is part of Scott’s blog tour. Complete details at To be eligible for the Kindle DX or Kindle 3, simply post a comment below with contact info. Feel free to debate and discuss the topic, but you will only be entered once per blog. He’s also giving away a Kindle 3 through the tour newsletter and a Pandora’s Box of free e-books to a follower of “hauntedcomputer” on Twitter. Thanks for playing!

  1. a book on bioethics. I like the sound of that. I was a microbiologist in my previous life (before kids ). You are almost done 🙂


  2. I’d really like to see more Sheriff Littlefield books. When you poll the sales of your books, please remember that The Red Church was out in print for years and many people already have that book while nobody had Disintegration until you released it.

    Still, I’ll read most anything you write unless you start writing romances . . . yeah, I probably won’t go there.

    Thanks for the contest,

  3. “what you would like to see next from me.”

    Although you didn’t mention it as an option (probably because you know how people will react and you do NOT want to scare any one away), as sick and twisted as it sounds, I’d like to see that secret photo book you’ve been working on “Scott Nicholson’s Backwoods Romance Handbook” featuring “Hillbilly Hook-ups (“Rule No. 1 is to take your teeth out before you start in a makin’ out. It’s always awkward after…”), ‘Deliverance’-style Dating (“Trappin’ tourists is the easiest thing to do on the river. Remember, the fatter the are, the slower they are…and they squeal soooo good!”) and Guide to Goat Love” (“Don’t let their weird eyes, horns, or beards throw you off. I ain’t never had a goat tell me no…and they feel so good, ‘cept when they start a poopin’.”). That might prove to be the best-seller you’ve been looking for–and think of all of the young hillbillies out there that would actually BENEFIT from such a tome chuck full o’ knowledge like this! Heck–I’d gladly pre-order an autographed copy of “Scott Nicholson’s Backwoods Romance Handbook” today — free bonus kindle version or not. I think it would be a real hoot!



  4. The tour has been fun! It is the first of its kind that I’ve experienced. I thought it was a novel idea, but I guess it’s becoming fairly common. You’ll always be my first, though, Scott.

  5. I’m glad you have as much fun writing blockbuster thrillers and mysteries as you do all your other genres. Your blog tour has been a really big eye opener and I appreciate everything you’ve shared with us, including your books. You are a busy, busy man, but then you have a great deal to show for it. I will be heading to your website after this tour ends for more Scott blogs because you have me trained like Pavlov’s dog. varbonoff 22 at cox dot net


  6. Some more “As I Die Lying,” “October Girls,” and you can always bring Littlefield and the boys in The Red Church and Drummer Boy back.
    Great blog tour. I’ll be going through withdrawal in December.


  7. I like thrillers and mysteries better than paranormal, so more of those please. Liquid Fear reminds me of some of Michael Crichton’s books like Next.

    My daughter is definitely looking forward to the next October Girls book, especially since she now has her Kindle.

    It’s weird that the tour is coming to an end. It’s been part of my daily routine for 3 months!



  8. Thanks for the giveaway. Great idea to give a free ebook with a signed paper book purchase. Everyone seems to be coming out with an ebook reader and the price keeps coming down.


  9. Looking forward to what you will do in the spring to promote your works. I have enjoyed being exposed to the various blogs on this tour—Thanks.


  10. Wow Scott, I knew you were busy but holy cow!!! I like that so much has been happening for you. This is a veru exiciting time for us fans!!

  11. You’ve done a great job with these posts over 90 days and it’s almost over! I’ve tried to follow each and every post, but have fallen down on my duty. I’m glad you have more persistence than I do!

  12. Great job with the posts for so long! Although, I must say, as much as I have enjoyed reading your posts, I have been finding Monster A go go’s posts quite amusing! I look forward to keeping up with you and will have to pop over and look at the books. As badly as I would like a Kindle, I don’t think I will give up buying books, especially signed ones 🙂

    Thanks for a great blog!



  13. Btw…nice Navy utility jacket…I wore one once myself…now I am going to have to go back and look in the bio to see if you have served…


  14. You’re near the finish line. I couldn’t begin to suggest what’s next, but it’ll be fun to find watch and see.

  15. Hi Scott, Boy but you made me tired just reading all that you are doing. Wish I had some of your energy. Hope all your plans come about and wish you the best.
    Still following youl.


  16. I hope that you get a nice balance going; what the readers want and what the writer’s keen to write!

  17. I would not presume to tell you what to do next. You are much more creative than I, and you like to stretch in a very healthy way. Look to your muses for inspiration. I have always liked series, so work in those stories would be appreciated. Read you in December on your blog and look forward to whatever comes!
