Day by Day Armageddon: Beyond Exile Breaks Amazon Top 100

Post by raptorman » Sun Jul 11, 2010 3:19 am

Huge deal for me and every zombie fiction fan. Beyond Exile is moving beyond expectations...

DBDA 2 Breaks Top 100 on Amazon.com
I never thought I would see the top 100 on amazon.com. Thanks to all of you that supported this.

If you have not yet pre-ordered DBDA 2, the price just dropped to $9 from ~$10.15. Not sure why. Must be pegged to the price of tea in China or something.

-->Here<-- is the pre-order link.

Thanks again to all the patient fans that waited for the sequel. From online blog to top 100...wow. Just wow.

Wow, Raptorman. You are going big time... Just wait till you get those movie royalties.... Your novel(s) is/are screaming to be made into a movie. If your novel(s) get adapted to screen, any idea which actors would be suitable for the lead roles?

Congrats bro! I can't wait to read the second book. The first was a major cliffhanger. And I agree, these could VERY easily be made into a movie. Great job man, you write some incredible stuff.

I woke up this morning and found the e-book version downloaded to my Kindle. :D I'll still be picking up a hard copy of it as well.

Just read the entire book yesterday. I couldn't put the damn thing down.

DAMN YOU RAPTORMAN! Every time I finish reading your books I have to wait patiently for the next one to come out! Oh well I could always just read both of them again (along with my other ZPAW books)

Congratulations on your success raptorman, but seriously, I can't wait until the next installment of the DBDA is available.

Picked up my copy yesterday. I'm about 50 pages in or so. I'm pacing myself to make it last longer! It's that good!

Mine came in the mail today while I was at work, then I got an email from Amazon stating that they are refunding me $1.12 because the price dropped since I first ordered it. :D
I'm not starting it until I re-read the first one though, I want it to be fresh in my mind since I've read three other zombie novels recently.

Raptorman,

I'm about 100 pages in I'm thoroughly enjoying myself. If anything, it's even better than your first work. I know you're on active duty man but write faster. This one's going to be done way too soon.

Just finished it. Great book -- even better than the first! That's saying a lot as I re-read the first book at least 5 times.
More action, more characters, better writing. Raptorman, your writing skills are getting better over time. This would make
an excellent movie. I don't want to include any spoilers, so I won't go into any great detail.

Raptorman, I think you did a great job of building suspense throughout this book. You had a good balance of introspection and outright-right zombie mayhem. There are some surprising plot twists and larger forces at work here that you
will undoubtedly have to tell us more about in volume 3.

Congratulations on your excellent book and be prepared for the Hollywood offers that are sure to follow.
