My novel is published - Shamelesser self promotionerrerr

So, here's what happened:

I wrote a novel.

Let that sink in.
Yes, the violently verbose vandal of verbiage has written a novel.
There's room, let it sink some more.
I actually wrote it between 2013 and 2015. If I met you in or around Denver, I think I may have mentioned it when I visited.

Mad props for the cover art are to be directed at the ossum Mishka Jaeger, who I know is registered here, but who's nick I cannot for the life of me recall.

What's it about:
You can read the blurb right here.
In short:
A pair of social misfits find technology at their disposal that they can use for a novel and innovative form of bio-terrorism. Neither of them would mind getting back at the world that has rejected them and, besides. If they don't, somebody else will, right?
While these two self-radicalise and perform inhuman experiments on the public, the World Health Organization's Pandemic Early Warning System throws a hissy. Worse, it's not even a micro-organism but appears to be a psychiatric disorder.
Cue Adam Johny. Professionally nondescript Whitehall official, he was stranded at the WHO Urgent Action Division mental-health unit. Now, he has to rely on his experience in institutional intrigue and shadowy-agency shit to work out whether the most terrifying plague is that. Or, worse, a much more terrifyinger terror-weapon.
Hilarity ensues.

As an introductory offer, it's priced at just $2.99. Apple iBooks will follow shortly. Because I seriously must travel across town to the only person I know who has a Mac system and can run their bizarre software without which nobody can upload no damn ebooks.
PM me if you think you deserve a free copy. Though a few initial sales and maybe reviews would be much, much appreciated.
Once the iBooks one works and I have at least a few sales and an review, I will begin spamming the sci-fi literature reviewers out there. So any traction will be doubly appreciated.

How would one go about getting a copy here in the US of States of America?

Sorry. Amazon is too dumb to understand that someone in Germany might mean it when they type the .com

Book read. Very mind-y. Not ashamed to say, there's a few spots where you got me. It was humorous too, that I read DGs Ootmic voice (I've assigned each of you a voice, regardless of what you actually sound like) through most of the more narrative parts of the novel.

I'm not a good enough reviewer to say why I liked it without giving things away. I guess you'll all just have to read it.

Bought; I'll let you know how it goes. It's cool seeing this because I've been working on fiction writing myself, focusing on, of course, science fiction. It's nice to see an Ootmik in print bandwith. :D

Yay, first sale in days! :P

Do leave a review, if you feel competent to do so. Got no stars, thus far ...
