My Novel: Watching Glass Shatter – ON SALE

Posted on Updated on

I am very excited to announce that Watching Glass Shatter is officially available for purchase on Amazon at: http://mybook.to/WGS. It will be available as an electronic read for the next few weeks, followed by physical copies in November. I also have an author page at Amazon that you can follow, and I would love your feedback on the content. I will be sending a small Amazon/Kindle version content update by end of week with a few extra pages / fixes if already purchased it this week.

Please look at both the author page and the book page — every click and purchase counts to help get this book to the top of its categories so other people can view, purchase and read it. If you purchase the book, I’d love a review on both Amazon and Goodreads, as well as your blog and any other platform you are interested in. Thank you so much in advance for being a part of this team.

If you reached out to me in the last few weeks about participating in a blog tour or any other marketing activities, I will message you separately to discuss how to share a copy of the book for you to begin reading this week.

The book is listed on Goodreads at: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36140949-watching-glass-shatter

Please take a look and mark it ‘To Be Read’ in the coming days. Share with your friends and followers. I will have a few Giveaways on Goodreads as well as some posts to share more information with my fellow readers.  It’s very exciting and will become reality very soon. Below please find ways for you to get involved in the launch. If you’ve already messaged me, I’ll be in touch over the next week to discuss next steps. Thank you.


As part of the launch of my new novel, Watching Glass Shatter, I am beginning to plan key marketing activities for November and December. If you are interested in participating, please private message me through email at jamesjcudney4@gmail.com or via any of my social media accounts. You can find the links at the bottom of this site. I am considering the following items plus anything else you might want to suggest:

  • Book Review
    • If you’re interested in reading the novel when it’s released, or possibly beforehand as an Advanced Reader Copy (ARC), sign up with your email address on my blog. I will have a few giveaways and freebies for a select number of folks who can help promote the novel.
    • Looking to promote and publish reviews on Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, Google+, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, your personal blog and anywhere else you can think of.

  • Blog Tour
    • If you’d like to be part of a blog tour for the first month after it’s released to help promote and advertise the book, let me know.
    • I’m looking to do a 30-day launch party where someone posts on a specific day with advertising and promotion for the book after they’ve read it. I’m open to whatever content you’d like to include to drum up interest.

  • Author Interview
    • Perhaps you’d like to do an interview feature by asking me a set of questions I can respond to on your blog.
    • Let’s talk about options on how you’d like to share more about me and the book with your followers.

I look forward to everyone’s interest and ideas. Thanks in advance for wanting to be part of the street team to help launch Watching Glass Shatter. Very exciting!

 

Book Summary

A contemporary fiction novel focusing on a New England family’s drama set in current times. The wealthy Glass family has lost its patriarch, Benjamin Glass, sooner than expected. Benjamin’s widow, Olivia, and her 5 sons each react to his death in their own way while preparing for the reading of his will. But it is Olivia who receives a very unexpected confession from her late husband about one of their sons that could shatter the whole family.

Prior to revealing the secret to her children, Olivia needs to figure out which boy Ben is referring to in the confession he left her in his will. While the family attorney is searching for the mysterious Rowena Hector whom Ben says holds the answers, Olivia asks her sons to each spend a week with her as she isn’t ready to let go of the past. But when Olivia visits her sons, she quickly learns that each one has been keeping his own secret from her.

Olivia never expected her remaining years would be so complex and life altering, but she will not rest until she is able to bring her family back together after Ben’s untimely death. Will she be able to fix them or will the whole family implode? We all need family. We all want to fit in. We’re a mix of quirky fun!

    Jay, I just wrote a review for your book on GoodReads. I couldn’t say enough good about your book honestly. It was a page-turner for sure as it kept me up all night until I finished it. Your detail was truly amazing. I loved the characters and how they intertwined in the family unit. I should be really mad at your for keeping me up all night, but it’s my fault that I thought I’d just read a few chapters before bedtime. I know for your next book to begin on a weekend during the daytime! LOL

      Hi. I am so appreciative of your review and this comment. You are wonderful and I really can’t thank you enough for taking the chance on reading a debut author. I had just opened Goodreads when I saw you had rated the book, then this comment popped up. I spilled coffee on myself trying to get situated to dive into it.

      I’m so sorry it kept you awake. Don’t start the next one late at night! I love the Glass family. I have many ideas of other things related to it, so seeing reviews like this make me realize the direction I need to go. Your review was amazing. I probably won’t respond on GR as somehow it seems funny for an author to respond publicly to someone’s review, but maybe I am just learning the ropes.

      Thank you again. I am heading over to re-read it again! Is it posted on Amazon or anywhere else? Just curious in case I stumble into anymore wonderful surprises…. made my day!!!
