Great updates by you this morning. X 2.

Fenix and Cerebrus...

Purchased both your books on Amezon.in sirji. Kindle edition. Tried with Flipkart for long and did not get it. So from Amezon.in.

Welcome back. Hope you health is good now. Good luck in advance in this book. This time it will be easy for Resident Indians to buy.

Folks, thanks for your support of Fenix. So far, Fenix has sold about 150 copies globally in the last three weeks. Hopefully it will pick up even more. :)

Can I please request those who read Fenix to put some reviews of the novel on the Amazon site? It makes a huge difference in the visibility of the book among the peers in its genre.

I have also, in the last week, ensured that the paperback version of Fenix is now available as well. :)

pandyan wrote:Vivek - Looks like you made it free for Amazon Prime subscribers and it is nice! does it make a difference for you (compensation wise) if I just read the kindle version versus buy a kindle version


Not really, saar. Basically, I get compensated a small amount each time a free copy is handed out to an Amazon Prime member. All part of Amazon business strategy, I guess.

Just the reference to the multi-headed Greek mythological dog. You will see why soon enough... 8)

150 copies sold of FENIX is too insufficient to call it anything. The BR readers who appreciated Ahuja posts have to loosen up their pockets to buy more. Only then Vivek Ahuja becomes a successful writer. Please do buy more.

Will there ever be an epub format e-book? Also, a compilation/trilogy pack would be good.

Dear Vivek Sir,
Try For Flipkart, Snapdeal And AMAZON india in Paper Back.. Plus It Needs little Advertising .. like a FB page!! Twitter Handle And Digital Marketing a Bit.. like small Phrases Posting Online etc.!!
Advertising Is too Important Regardless of How Good a Content Is!!
Cheers!!

Dear Vivek ji,

May i ask why the cerberus logo is a AK-47? it is understandable that the Phoenix logo for the Fenix represents the country raising from the ashes..

May be the dog itself is a good choice.. (facing multiple foes (dog heads)) :P :P

Im sure you must have had the thoughts abt the same..

I bought my copy of the book from amazon and it was delivered yesterday (Bangalore) after about 10 days. Just digging in to it now.

While I had read through the scenario through Vivek's posts here, it still is as gripping as ever!!!

Snagged the kindle edition. I started reading Chimera - it was gripping but life intervened. I wil have to restart that and then onto Fenix. Let us get these two books into GoodReads as well.

Vivek(Ahuja): If you are not on GoodReads already, request that you join as an author there.

This was the thread (the Chimera one) that first drew me to this forum. So its only appropriate that I make my first post in this thread. With that, I request Vivek sir to stop torturing us poor souls.
Eagerly awaiting,

After a long circuitous road that led me to the metaphoric mountain peak in search of the meaning of life :oops: , I now sit at my keyboard, stroking my new long beard 8) and pondering on the final chapter of the current trilogy: Cerberus.

I think it is time to begin this story, with all of your permissions, of course.
