It’s been a week since Another Broken Wizard went on sale. And I want to sincerely thank everyone who bought the book in the past week, and to everyone who reviewed it, or just befriended it on facebook.

So far, the campaign has been a success, with many sales, and several reviews on the way from all quarters of the print and online world in the coming months.

But more importantly, promoting Another Broken Wizard has given me a chance to reconnect with a lot of old friends, and to meet some new ones.

Now it’s up to you. So please tell your all friends about Another Broken Wizard.

Many thanks to Kevin Kosar for writing the first post-publication review of Another Broken Wizard on his website.

“Dodds has written a fine novel. He has a voice wholly his own, and he captures the elemental good and bad in the American male. Joe’s recklessness and gang feud creates a looming peril that keeps the reader on edge,” Kosar writes.
