Thomas Martin Saturday, the nom de plume of Thomas Martin Sobottke, has just published his first historical novel Richmond’s Bloody Road. So many of you have been kind enough to purchase a copy either as an e-book or in print. Many thanks! The book is available on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble and via Powell’s Books.
I’m asking those of you who have yet to purchase your copy, or purchase a copy for anyone on your Christmas list who might like American Civil War novels or Nineteenth Century historical novels that read crisply and have a twist of mystery within them to make your purchases. The series will feature a good Civil War fight in every book but also strong female characters to be matched with our two central characters: Sanford J. Ellis and Benjamin Eaton. I’m seeking most purchases to come first from Amazon.com as a marketing strategy as the company has a search engine software program that moves up books that get the most sales.
You can also help a great deal by talking to TWO FRIENDS about what you thought of the book and reccomend the book in the next few weeks. The editorial board of the Historical Novelists Association is reviewing the book and press copies are going out over the next two weeks for other reviewers. The book is the first in a series of novels that will encompass the entire Civil War and perhaps into the Reconstruction Era beyond. Book two in the series is due out this next summer.
