Phil Rossi's shout-out to Junkies

Click & Listen: Phil Rossi’s shout-out to Junkies

Phil Rossi is taking the ANCESTOR route to publishing, making an Amazon.com rush on July 9 for his novel CRESCENT. I like this book a lot, so much, in fact, that the FDO™ has a tasty blurb on the front
cover. 

Phil is giving the book away as a podcast and a PDF, but he wanted to take a couple of minutes to give his schpeil directly to you Junkies. Hey, what can you say? He knows what a dominant force the Junkies are, and he’s making a pitch for his goods. Give it a listen and see if the book sounds like your cup of blood.

    Original thanks got buried

    ..and I’m not going to mess with the Leader of the Wolf Pack.

     

    FDO and loyal junkies–thank you for helping make the book launch a huge success.  

    Crescent was: #1 in Movers and Shakers, #3 in Hot Horror New Releases, #5 in Horror, #16 in Science Fiction and Fantasy, and #52 on all of Amazon.

    Not a bad day indeed!

     

    Cheers,

    Phil Rossi

    It was just pointed out to me

    I normally don’t address non-constructive reviews, but it was just pointed out to me by a listener that this very "review" popped up in multiple places on July 8th, 2009.  Identical to the word.  I think that says it all. 

     

    Thanks for the support, Junkies.  The Chart Rush was a smashing success.

  12. Shadygirl

    Yeah…

    That was beyond bad. Upon further review, I don’t think it was him. Someone else was brought to my attention. Now I know exactly who they boys are talking about!

    I remember that

    person.  I think it is the only time I’ve see Scott really (instead of just playfully) annoyed with someone.  And rightfully so!

    My bet….

    they are talking about someone from quite a while back. If I am right, he riled all of us up with some rather unfriendly remarks about the FDO’s work.

    Hey Rossi!

    Hmmm, now that you mention it

     It could be a very distinct possibility…

    this sounds familiar

    is it possible that a Junkie who will not be named. toned down his rhetoric,  signed on as a guest  just to leave this turd?

    I couldnt do it, I just couldnt bring myself

     to purchase the 3 copies of Crescent I promised Rossi I’d buy. I mean, I know Rossi’s a great podcaster and all and Crescent was a excellently told story. But I just could do it.   So instead, I bought 4! :D

    I not sure we’ll see anything of bigdaddy

    again though I could be wrong. It seems like the (not verified) folks that show up and post their crappy little remarks like his above dont usually come back after the fact. Rossi’s Crescent was an excellent story and does not compare in the least to bigfatheady’s opinionated review.

    Too true Wolfie

    Phil has a pretty twisted mind & I can’t wait to see what it spews forth next.

     

    Ooo, perhaps a Crescent universe / The Rookie universe crossover? That would be pimpalicious.

    Hey Big Daddy!

    Phil wasv giving a shout out to us junkies who like his work and want to promote him.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion but why don’t you join and hang around for a while.  Post some positive comments before criticizing people.

    Okay, I went ahead and made the purchase

    I’m putting my credit card info on the line for you Phil!

     

    Eh, it was a great story, so totally worth it. Smile

    We just placed our order for 4 copies!

  28. PerfectDayForDying

    Craaap!

    Was just trying to purchase this and Personal Effects:Dark Art over at Amazon… Those jokers force you to store your payment info with them, which is something I simply will not do. Payment companies get hacked ALL THE TIME and I have no idea who Amazon uses for credit card processing. Why can’t they just let me do a one-time payment instead of wanting to store my CC info? So stupid.

     

    Sorry Phil, I guess I’ll have to wait until I can find it in a brick-and-mortar store. 

     

    **GirlCo + UNdead = Chicks you DO NOT want to mess with.**

  29. PerfectDayForDying

    not sure where you saw

    a Deus Ex machina in the ending. What Phil wrote – the stuff about two universes bumping against each other – actually has its foundations in hard science. The "branes" theory of universe genesis speaks almost directly to what Phil was getting at. I’m sorry you didn’t like it as much as the rest of us did, but

    A) It was free, so quit yer bitchin’

    B) Constructive criticism would have better than just saying "it sucked & didn’t scare me."

    Ready to order from Amazon.com – good luck Phil!

    Thanks SG

    I went to Rossi’s website and found that out. Thanks. I should have updated this post.

    Thanks for having my back.

  33. Shadygirl

    No

    I don’t really get how it all works, but my understanding is that when a rush the charts is planned, pre-orders do not help. With a rush, all orders need to be on the same day.

    Awesome Story

    Read it Junkies!  Its a great pod cast, I will look forward to my copy of the book

  35. Wolf

    I highly recommend it!

    I’ve listened to the pocast several times & always enjoy it. Good luck, Phil, & thanks.

  37. I_AM---

    so a pre-order will not help with a rush?

    Not sure I get this whole rush the charts thing. and if pre-orders get counted in with the "rush". I AM going to go ahead and order my copy tomorrow, just to make sure. and if this has been discussed before. just point me to the right forum. Thank you…

    We plan to order 3 or 4 tomorrow.

  39. PerfectDayForDying

    Excellent story

     Though I may never actually read it (’cause I prefer audiobooks for my fiction) I’m going to buy a copy just to show my support for Phil. He’s a really great up-and-coming writer with a super-creepy style. Love it!
