I made a micro-budget sci-fi/drama movie a while back called Down The Chain. It stalled in post-production because I went off to write some books. Now it’s back with a crowdfunding campaign to reshoot a few critical scenes and get the film into some festivals around the country.

The main category of Horror is always trickier since there are so many books to compete against. The rankings have been slowly slipping ever since but have not yet plummeted. The book has had legs of its own ever since I published it back in October and was selling with no interference from me long before this promo. Hopefully with 200 more legitimate purchases floating around, sales will continue to propagate. The only explanation I can come up with is good word of mouth, so I have my fingers crossed that readers who get a genuine scare will continue to tell their friends about the novel.
