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.

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!

horrible story

I listened to this via podcast and the story started off with premise then dipped into the absurd, rolled into the boring, and concluded with a Yawn. So much buildup and then a Deus Ex machina saves the day. You could've figured it out long before and knew what was happening. It felt like the author was writing just to write and do fillers. You could easily cut out 1/4 of this book and slim it down. The horror wasn't there, the sleazy sex was, and the suspense was nice then let down. Overall a 6/10 for effort. I wasn't impressed and really was hoping for it to get good and then horribly let down at the ending.

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...

Awesome Story

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

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.

Thanks SG

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

Thanks for having my back.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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?
