If you want a print copy, it’s available signed from . It is live on VillageBooks.com (Signed with $0.99 shipping and handling! If you want it personalized, leave a note in the Order comments box at the bottom.) and Amazon as a print book.

It will be a few weeks before you can get it at your local bookstore (Unless you’re lucky enough to live in Bellingham!) or your library, but it should be available soon. I’ll be sure and announce it.

If you haven’t read ALL IS SILENCE, order it here:  Amazon here, or Kobo here, or nook here or iBooks here! Thanks.

10 Days and counting… Release date/End of Pre-Pub Prices…

Hey folks,

So much is happening as I approach the release date for my debut novel. All is Silence. The KOBO eBook is hovering around #7 on the Young Adult SF/Dystopian charts. I’ve sold copies in France, Canada, UK and US. There are mentions on websites in Hungary, and Australia, it’s available as pre-order in all the Big River stores internationally. When I google [“All Is Silence” Slater] I get 5-6 pages of results and only about half are directly attributable to me!

I have students at my school making a book trailer in the video class, talking about making a fan website and getting in trouble for reading my book in class instead of doing their homework. My target audience of Teen Girls who don’t read seems to be perfectly aligned with my intent. Others of both genders age 13 to 83 have praised its readability, and edge of your seat, “adrenaline-soaked,” edgy realism. Those who have finished it are asking how soon the next book will be out… Whew… [Too many ellipses… Sorry.]

All Is Silence is ON SALE $3.99 for eBook on all major platforms: KoboBarnes & NobleAmazoniBooks, and $11.95 for a personalized, SIGNED, shipped print copy from my this page. On February 15th, my 47th B-day the prices will rise to regular suggested retail in anticipation of the February 18th release. Ebooks will be $6.99 and the print price will be $10.99 + $0.96 tax and $3.05 shipping and handling for a signed copy.

Various worldwide vendors will provide it to you for less without my signature. If you are international, the Book Depository promises to ship it free to most places for a penny less than the cover price! If you wish to buy one that way and would like a signed bookplate. I will have a new Post Office Box listed here by the 18th.

We’re trying to find a date for a Book Release Party at Village Books, my primary partner in all of this. Current dates in consideration are March 14th and 21st.

Thanks for all the support and for coming on this ride with me.

Read on,

Rob
