T- 24 hours to launch!

Tomorrow is D-Day for us. We're putting Dead on Demand on Amazon for you all to try. It'll be up at $2.99 / £1.99, with a free 10% sample available so you can try before you buy.

In the end our word count has ended up just under a hundred shy of our 80,000 target, so we are pretty close - it's the same length print publishers ask for when considering debut novels, so it's a meaty read without being too elongated.

Our product description, as chosen by you guys is going to be:

"A career man, Edwin Murphy has always put more effort into his work than his family. Everything changes for Edwin when his wife files for divorce. On the brink of losing his home, his job and his little girl, Edwin orchestrates an intricate plan to eliminate his wife and regain his former lifestyle.

The police are baffled when bodies begin to appear all over London with no apparent connection between them. Inspector David Morton must think outside the box as he investigates the deadly web of deceit behind the murders."

We know we're asking alot, but if you do have the time and the inclination, a few early purchases will really help us get the ball rolling. Amazon metrics works best once there are plenty of reviews up - we are still offering free copies in return for reviews, and will do until we have a few on Amazon (just comment or DM us on twitter if interested).

Verified reviews are even better - as then readers know you bought the product (and you can evaluate fairly whether it was worth paying £1.99 for).

We'd also appreciate facebook likes, tweets, amazon likes and tags - you can see the how and why at

Thank you all for your support - it's been an amazing challenge, and we hope you enjoy the end result.
Dan and Sean
