Attention everyone!

Nina Kimberly the Merciless
here, star of Nina Kimberly the Merciless, by Christiana Ellis. As I am sure
you are all aware, the battle has run into an unforeseen interruption.

The campaign on Friday the 15th
started off extremely well, and my book rose from a sales rank of 2 hundred
Thousand to number 533 overall by 11:40 AM Eastern Time. Although the book had
not yet been posted to the specific genre charts, that sales rank would have
been Number #11 in Fantasy, #2 in “Epic” Fantasy, and #1 in “General” Fantasy.

That was before noon eastern time! There is no doubt in my mind that that
was only the beginning.

But the Inertians must have
been afraid, because they then resorted to a desperate tactic that we had not
forseen. It is still not clear exactly what happened, but the Inertians have
caused some kind of an error in the Amazon system that resulted in the book
being reported as out of print. When that happened, loyal barbarians could no longer
purchase the book, thus preventing us from rising any higher in the rankings.

Right now, we don’t know yet
when this will be fixed. We didn’t foresee this strategy. However, we have our
best spies and shield-breakers working on this as we speak and hopefully we
will be through their defenses soon.

In the meantime, I know that
there are a lot of you out there, just like me. Spoiling for a fight! You
thought you were going to fight some evil spirits, only to have a door slammed
in your face! If you’re like me, that ticks you off and you want to do
something about it! Well, here’s the new plan. Right now, the Amazon issue
requires a scalpel, not a broadsword, and so I have different orders for you,
my loyal horde!

Although continuing to attack
Amazon is satisfying, right now, it is counter-productive, so instead, I want
all of you to focus on finding and converting new recruits! The Inertians
specialize in disrupting momentum, preventing changes from ever happening. Now
that they have interrupted our campaign, we must work all the harder to be
ready to resume as soon as we breach the shields again. We must find anyone and
everyone who has not yet heard the call, and prepare them to join our cause!

We have several tools
available, the videos, the promos, but your best weapon is the pdf version of
the book
. It is easily distributed on blogs, websites, forums, and Podcast feeds.
It has the complete version of the story, so people unfamiliar with the story
can determine whether or not they will like it, and most importantly, it
contains links to the Amazon storefront page. The people who click those links
now will not be able to purchase it yet, but every click-through will be one
more hit, showing the Inertians that their tactic has not eliminated demand for
the book.

So go, help spread the word,
spread the pdf version of the book far and wide, and when we once again break
through the Inertians defenses, we will be ready. I know I can count on all of
you, and thank you for your loyalty and support. Now get out there, and be
