Game Night on Kindle: It’s Here!

I tweeted about this early this morning, but my novel Game Night is now available on the Kindle for a time-limited launch price of 99c in the US and 70p in the UK. Here’s where you can find it:

US: http://www.amazon.com/Game-Night-ebook…

As part of his I’ve done a press release, reproduced below. Please feel free to grab any or all of it if you want to post something up on a blog, on Facebook, or on a forum.

PRESS RELEASE

Game Night, Jonny Nexus’s 2007 ENnie-nominated novel of roleplaying gods, is now available on Amazon’s Kindle platform, with versions available both for standard Kindles as well as the Kindle apps for PC, iPhone, iPad and Android. To celebrate this event, it will initially be sold at a bargain launch rate of just 99 cents in the US (Amazon.com) and 70 pence in the UK (Amazon.co.uk).

As well as achieving the prestigious ENnie nomination, Game Night was widely lauded in reviews. Cartoonist and writer John Kovalic said:

“A Pratchet-esque debut novel of gods, roleplaying, and game-night kerfuffles … Buy Game Night. It’s a fun, fresh, irreverent read that’ll ring true to any gamer even if, unlike the protagonists, you happen not to be a god.”

And on RPGNet, RPG writer and reviewer Steve Darlington declared:

“The best novel ever written about gaming. One of the funniest novels ever written about anything.”

The novel’s author, Jonny Nexus, says: “Launching Game Night on the Kindle is a big thrill for me. The paper version of Game Night got a better response than I’d ever hoped for. People really enjoyed it, both gamers and non-gamers. It really seemed to strike a chord, and I can’t wait for a whole new group of people to read it.”

    A few of my Kindle friends & myself have already bought it – thanks! I have friends that have a Nook, though; they’d like to know if Barnes & Noble will be carrying it for the Nook.

      Hi Bobbie,

      As always, thanks for buying it.

      On the subject of the Nook, the answer is yes, eventually. At some point in the future I’m going to sort of reorganise / rationalise the way Game Night is done. There are plans, though nothing I can really talk about.

      I was actually writing something as part of those plans, and I was listing the (e)platforms we want to cover. They were:

      1) Kindle.

      2) iBooks.

      3) Some kind of generic ePub outlet for people with other readers who can just get the ePub file and transfer it onto their readers.

      I then mentioned the Nook and said we needed to look into it to see what it was, and whether it would be covered by 3 above, or would need a specific solution.

      So those discussions are ongoing. But it recently become possible to publish Game Night on the Kindle (there was an issue previously with an exclusivity agreement elsewhere) and given how rapidly the Kindle is expanding, I wanted to get it out there asap.

      So the Kindle version is an initial toe-in-the-water, with more to come.

      Thanks again!
