We'll be running the full-length, free podacast of THE STARTER starting in February 2011, but you can hear the whole thing right this very moment! Thanks for your continued support and we hope you enjoy the new digital goods! For this project we've worked with some terrific new folks:

  • BackMyBook.com: The one-stop shop for all GFL products and the new home for all Dark Øverlord sales.  Their platform allows you to purchase the eBook version once, and have access to any format you need. Change your e-reader of choice? Just go back to your account there and download the new format. No muss, no fuss.
  • eBOOK ARCHITECTS: These great folks created our beautiful eBooks. They're super helpful, have tons of experience, and great customer service -- all with unbeatable timelines and pricing.

 And the old-school Denizens of Døøm y'all know we love:

  • Sheer Brick Studio: our only true home of book layout design.  Creative design, impeccable delivery. 
  • Morningstar Audio Engineering: in addition to the production work you hear each week in the Sunday 'cast, Arioch Morningstar is a meticulous, dedicated sound engineer, with a special ear for spoken word & audiobooks.

I know it's crazy to ask for patience when you spent your money and want your goodies, but the gang at BackMyBooks wasn't expecting this much traffic. So hang tight for a bit, we'll get it sorted out.

I think Døm products must come with a warning label from now on!

If you are going to host our product, be prepared for the ORANGESLAUGHT on the first day.

No, seriously. My Junkies WILL crash your servers. No, really, I'm NOT kidding.

Fine, don't believe me. Wait and see. But have plenty of customer service people on call that day........

    Mea Culpa

    Junkies, this is Gk from backmybook.com.  I want to personally apologize for the snafus today.  We truly underestimated the overwhelming response to the Dark Overlord's audiobooks.  To quote the immortal line from Jaws: 'We're gonna need a bigger boat'.  So, while we are busy buying more servers for you all, I do sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding.  I also am truly sorry for our oversight -- my bad.

    My email is gk-at-backmybook.com  Please feel free to contact me directly if you have questions, or if you've been affected by our outage.  Include 'junkie' or 'sigler' anywhere in the subject or message, and you'll be filtered to the top of my inbox.

    Thanks again,

    -Gk

    feature request to backmybooks

    I humbly submit that it'd be great if backmybooks allowed resumable downloads.  I realize that wouldn't solve the whole problem, but at least it'd prevent the issue where someone downloads, say, 750+MB of the 800+MB file, then has to start over. 

    Resumable downloads are not a new idea.  It's been around for 10+ years so adding it shouldn't be too difficult--maybe they'd need to totally re-work how their back-end file delivery process works, but at this point, IMHO, that option should be on the table anyway.

    Stay shiny.

    selling out

    love you FDO-BUT-When you write to market to a certain audience-that jumps the shark..so next you tone down the violence then make the characters express their feeling with words and deeds.touchy feely...bring in a magic dog.and we end up with the same mass market "girl who loved a vampire and werewolf" crap.I don't mean this as dissrespect-...I came to you because koontz/king/saul went soft on me....I read you because ( Like PALAHNIUK ) YOU WOULDN'T PULL PUNCHES-YOU BROUGHT IT.....and.....you were writing for YOU....

    Classy move by BackMyBook

    Junkies, if you look in the comments, there is a "Mea Culpa" from BackMyBook.com, the company hosting and selling our GFL eBooks and audiobooks.

    If you have specific issues about your order, you can click here to email him.

    No disrespect taken ... now pet my magic dog

    My magic dog's name is "Fluffykins." He will be featured in PANDEMIC, between the parts with the eviscerations and decaptitaitons.

    I hear what you're saying, but I disagree. Making THE GFL series "YA" isn't selling out as much as it is siezing an opportunity to get young people reading. Let's face it, for a lot of the people I went to high school with, they would sooner shave their nuts with a rusty lawnmower blade than read about touchy-feely vamps or wizard kids.

    I also have two nephews and two nices who I wouldn't let read any of my regular stuff. Too harsh. It's fun to write a book your fourth-grade nephew can read and geed out on.

    There is nothing like THE GFL series out there that I have found. Nothing. Thanks to a chance encounter with some peeps at the Apple iTunes store, I took advantage of the opportunity and made it YA.

    But you have discovered my new plan: to make NOCTURNAL a kid-friendly romp through the magical, candyland streets of San Francisco.

    On Edited

    I think I can see what you're afraid of, but I beg to disagree

    Scott's made it pretty clear that the GFL series is going to be a "gateway" series. Yes, *this* particular series of books will be written for adolescents. It will encourage them to read and get them hooked on Sigler crack. Both admirable objectives IMHO.

    I don't see him backing off a bit in any of his other series. Have you? If not, let's hold off on the "next....." speculation until it actually happens. Judge the man by what he actually does, not by what you think he might do. Fair enough?
