Counterclockwise Mission Statement

3 Oct

Hello friends, family, students, colleagues and complete strangers. As you may or may not be aware, I have finally published my novel Counterclockwise, a labor of love that has been decades in the making. And now I am here to lobby for your support and appeal to your love of literature and the arts in general.

Below this statement you will notice an link to my book. What I would ask of you is to share this website with everyone you know who supports creative independent endeavors and on 11/01/2012 when the countdown timer above this post reaches 0, around @11:00am PST, to please purchase a copy of the book on Amazon. The primary goal here is not to turn a huge profit, but rather to elevate the book to # 1, or at least put it in the top ten so as to bring some serious attention to a small self published release through the grassroots efforts of all of you.

I know this is a massively ambitious undertaking, but with your help and support, maybe we can knock 50 Shades of Grey off the bestseller list. I can’t do this without you. When the Amazon campaign has ended we will reset it for the official event launch at the Feedback Lounge in West Seattle on 11/14

    Recipe for a Bestseller: Dear Planet Earth, My humble goal and singular mission in life is to convince you and five of your friends to purchase my debut novel, COUNTERCLOCKWISE on November 1 at 11:00 AM PST, and 1:00 PM CST. It’s only $14.99 ($2.99 on Kindle), and satisfaction is guaranteed or I absolutely promise to send you a full refund. Seriously. Once you read it, if you like it, please consider writing a review on (If you don’t like it, well, with your hectic schedule, you’re probably to busy to write a review anyway.) Just so you know, the novel is set in 1980, and it’s about a world famous rock ‘n’ roll singer who, by chance (fate?), befriends a grocery store clerk in Tucson, Arizona. They subsequently convince one another to face their respective pasts, which seem to be sabotaging their respective futures. Sometimes in life, whether you like it or not, you have to go backward to go forward (hence the novel’s title). WARNING: There are no cyborgs, vampires, werewolves, wizards, or zombies in the cast. (Maybe next time.) Thanks to everyone who helps make this the most exciting project of my writing career. I love you all with my whole heart! :). —-Mike.
