INSTINCT HITS STORE SHELVES TODAY (April 13).

INSTINCT is my most highly praised and best novel to date. We're once again following the exploits of the Chess Team, who are still super bad-ass, but I put them through the ringer with this one. Even if the series goes on for 20 books, some of the scars received in INSTINCT will still be visible. So check it out and prepare for an insane, dark and thrilling ride.

Buy it at B&N. Buy is on Amazon.



Here's what the story is about:

The president of the United States is dead—assassinated by a weaponized strain of the Brugada Syndrome, a genetic disease that kills without symptom. Without warning. The infected fall over dead, their healthy hearts stopped. Thankfully, the fast actions of the Secret Service revive the President. But the assassination attempt was just the beginning. The contagious new strain spreads silently across the United States. Within weeks, the human race will be on the brink of extinction.

The coming pandemic thrusts Jack Sigler, call sign King, and his “Chess Team”—Queen, Rook, Bishop and Knight—into a frantic search for the disease’s origin, and hopefully, a vaccine. Accompanying them are Sara Fogg, a CDC disease detective and Somi Syha, an undercover CIA field agent in the remote region the team must infiltrate—Vietnam’s Annamite mountain range.

With biologists routinely discovering large, new mammal species in the Annamites, the region has been called a modern day Noah’s Ark. But to those who live there, the dark jungles and harsh terrain laden with Vietnam War era landmines is regarded as a land of death—where plagues are born and killers reside.

As the Chess Team returns American boots to the Ho Chi Minh trail they find the Death Volunteers—Vietnamese Special Forces—waiting for them. Pursued through the jungle, underground tunnel systems and ancient ruins from a time before human settlement, the team receives a warning from the lone survivor of a slaughtered village. “Nquoi Rung,” the old woman whispers. “Nquoi Rung.”

An ancient evil hunts the team, and while it won’t let them leave the jungle alive, it may just hold the key to saving the human race.

Jeremy Robinson pulls no punches in his second installment of the Chess Team series, combining adrenaline-rush action with smart science, ancient legends and stunning locations.

"If you like thrillers original, unpredictable and chock-full of action, you are going to love Jeremy Robinson's Chess Team. INSTINCT riveted me to my chair."
--Stephen Coonts, NY Times bestselling author of THE DISCIPLE and DEEP BLACK: ARCTIC GOLD

"Robinson’s slam-bang second Chess Team thriller [is a] a wildly inventive yarn that reads as well on the page as it would play on a computer screen."
--Publisher's Weekly

"Intense and full of riveting plot twists, it is Robinson’s best book yet, and it should secure a place for the Chess Team on the A-list of thriller fans who like the over-the-top style of James Rollins and Matthew Reilly."
--Booklist

"Jeremy Robinson has done it again. INSTINCT is a knock-down, thought inducing, all-out-thrill-fest with enough testosterone to put hair on even the wimpiest of chests. The Chess Team is back and once again they’ll travel to the ends of the earth in an effort to save it. "
--thenovelblog.com

"Jeremy Robinson is a fresh new face in adventure writing and will make a mark in suspense for years to come."
--David Lynn Golemon, NY Times bestselling author of LEGEND and EVENT

"Instinct is a jungle fever of raw adrenaline that goes straight for the jugular."
--Thomas Greanias, NY Times bestselling author of THE ATLANTIS PROPHECY and THE PROMISED WAR

"The action and the pacing were spot on with spills, chills and surprises throughout. Thriller fans get ready because Jeremy Robinson is the next A List Thriller writer!"--Megalith Book Review

"How should I market my book?"

I think this is the most common question I'm asked by authors. And there is no easy answer. The list of potential marketing techniques is vast and there are books dedicated to the subject (don't ask me what they are, scan around and find what fits you best). So when I talk about HOW you should market your book, I'm not talking technique. Forget viral videos, listmania lists, podcasts, and the million other possibilities available to you and prepare for some three point wax on, wax off, goodness.

1. Innovation

Forget what the marketing books say, come up with your own brilliant scheme. That's not to say you should ignore tried and true marketing, but you should innovate your own methods for your book. Here's some examples of things I've done int he past--some of which are mainstream marketing now.

• Book trailer: when I made my first there were very few other book trailers being used as marketing vehicles.

• Viral Video: To my knowledge I was the second author to create a viral video to promote a novel. I was certainly the first author to create TEN viral videos. They've been viewed more than 300,000 times.

• Virtual Book Signing: I was one of the first authors to do this, and was absolutely the first to officially partner with Skype.

That's just three of many strategies I've tried. Did they all work? I'm not going to say. What doesn't work for me may work for you. The point is, try something new. As a fiction author it's nearly impossible to get press, but every time I try a new marketing technique I get lots of press coverage. So there are side benefits to trying something new, even if it doesn't work.

2. Dedication

What ever you pick, stick with it. Don't give up half way through. Be committed and see it through. I see a lot of authors take up a marketing project with lots of excitement only to let it drop when the commitment becomes too large. Don't start a podcast novel if you can't see it through. Don't promise a viral video campaign and fail to deliver. You get the point. If you put something out for public consumption, finish it. Not doing so could actually harm your efforts.

For example, last year I launched a contest for the hard cover release of PULE. I created a viral video and asked fans to create their own. The winner would get an AMAZING prize package of signed novels donated by authors. How did it turn out? Two people entered. I could have let it drop and fade away, apologizing to the two entrants, but I didn't. I saw it through to the end and ended up paying $250 to ship the prize package to NEW ZEALAND! But those two entrants were thrilled and have been spreading the word about my books since. Who knows what they would have said if I pulled out.

3. Fearlessness

One of the best compliments I've got as an author was from Scott Sigler. He called me fearless because I'm willing to try anything. I've made a fool of myself on several occasions and will continue to do so. Of course, being fearless doesn't mean you have to make a fool of yourself. That's just my personality. I'm a little loco, especially when I've got a video camera.



You might be camera shy. You might be afraid of public speaking. You might have a fear of technology. Get. Over. It.

I took a public speaking class in college. I hated every second of it and spent ten minutes before every class in the bathroom. It's the closest I've experienced to sheer terror. But I forced my way through it and got an astonishing A+ (I think the prof was being merciful--did I mention I did my final presentation with my fly down? I won brownie points with the jocks in the class who thought I did it on purpose--but I will forever check my fly before getting up in front of people).

Anywho, I have gone on to do many signings, workshops and lectures since publishing my books. I'm at a point now where a group of 30 people hardly phases me. My new found tolerance for public speaking was challenged last summer when I was a Panel Master at Thrillerfest, but once again I made it through. I could have said "no" to all these things and stayed in my comfortable bubble, but I didn't. And you can't afford to, either. You're in the trenches of self-promotion. If you don't get out and charge the front line you're going to get rolled over. Cheesy analogy? Maybe. But accurate.

So when you think about HOW you need to market, don't just think about what you need to do, think about the intensity with which you will complete the task. Will you innovate something new? Will you dedicate yourself and see it through? Will you face your fears and conquer them? If not, well, I'm going to. Your competition is going to. So take some marketing, wax it on, wax it off and repeat until you can do it on reflex. If it can make Ralph Machio a force to be reckoned with, it can help you sell a few books.

PULSE is now out in mass market format, which means its more affordable than ever ($7.99). Snag it now and get caught up with the Chess Team in time for INSTINCT (April 13). Think about it, you can either go eat at McDonald's, which takes what, 20 minutes. Then you can feel sick for an hour, then feel fat, then depressed.

OR you can get PULSE, be entertained for eight hours, lose weight (you won't be getting up to eat) and feel better about yourself AND have a smile on your face because the book is so fun. So what will it be? The choice is yours. Fat and depressed or healthy and happy.

How's that for a thriller novel pitch?

I don't know about you all, but I've been looking forward to 7th SON by J.C. Hutchins since I had the privilege of reading and blurbing his last novel, PERSONAL EFFECTS: DARK ART. As you can see, the cover is amazing and the story (which is also available as a 100% free podcast novel at www.jchutchins.net).

And if all that wasn't enough to convince you this novel is worth sinking your teeth into, check out this FREE 10 chapter sample in PDF format. Be warned, if you open that PDF you'll end up shelling out $10 (at Amazon) for the book.

Okay, so ThinkHero.com is a website I frequent for reviews of my favorite (sci-fi, horror, super hero) movies, TV shows, video games, etc...but they had never done a novel before. So, naturally, I suggested it and they agreed. The book was read and reviewed by Beckett, who I now know has exceptional taste. Thanks to Beckett and Dennis at ThinkHero for making this happen.

Click here to check out Claws on Amazon.

Jeremy, thanks so much for the opportunity to guest blog at your place about my new novel CLAWS. Not only are you a tremendously gifted writer, but you’re tremendously generous as well. Thanks so very much.

So what is CLAWS?

CLAWS is a thriller that centers on a wildlife biologist named Angie Rippard who is drawn into a police investigation when two of her students at the University of Arizona are found dead on a golf course early one morning. Rippard suspects the teens were killed by a large mountain lion.

If you’re a fan of Michael Crichton, Steve Alten, Scott Sigler, or Lincoln Child, you’ll find a lot to like in CLAWS. I love those writers, and my book was born out of a love for the kinds of thrillers these great writers create.

I am currently kicking off a 45-day blog tour to promote CLAWS, and have been absolutely astonished by the good will of bestselling writers who have given me a spot to guest blog about my little-engine-that-could novel.

So the topic of today’s guest blog: What are your favorite novels?

What are the books that you return to time and time again over the years? And why?

For me, I have probably read Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park and Sphere more than any other novels. My copy of Jurassic Park is absolutely falling apart because of how many times I’ve read it. What Crichton seemed to do in that book better than anywhere else in the first part of his career was to wed science, plot, and character together into a compelling brew.

By bringing kids into the center of his story, he created a tenderness and vulnerability that was absent from many of his earlier novels. And let’s face it; it’s a hell of a concept. Maybe the most plausible (and timely) concept of any of his novels up to that point in his career.

So how about you guys? What are some of your favorite novels of all time and why?

KRONOS!

Kronos has arrived and is now available to buy on Amazon, Barnes&Noble and everywhere else books are sold!

Based, in part, on the legend of the Great New England Sea Serpent, this is a fast-paced deep sea thriller like no other. Don't believe me? Here's a blurb from Steve Alten, NY Times bestselling author of MEG, MEG - Hell's Aquarium and The Loch, "Moby Dick meets James Bond thriller with an amazing twist!" Alten is a master of the deep sea thriller and I'm thrilled to have his support on the book.

Erik Hollander (the book cover designer) is also the director of the JAWS documentary, The Shark is Still Working, and has interviewed the likes of Stephen Spielberg and M. Night Shyamalan. When he heard the story (and the twist) he was blown away and said, "You've totally reinvented the genre!"

For details on the book including the story summary, video trailer, mini-documentary and reviews click here to visit the Kronos page.

For those that read the blog, I have moved my blogging home to myspace. While the blog there isn't quite as pretty the bonus of having all the myspace content attached is awesome. Plus, the exposure there is much higher and my number of readers has significantly increased. SO, to see the new blog and keep up to date on what's going down with my books head on over to my myspace page and check it out (along with all the other primo content!)

FYI, this will probably be my last post on this blog.

It will still help! *There is a good chance Amazon will run out of stock, but order anyway. The book will go out within days (even if Amazon says it will take 4 - 6 weeks). Here's the link.

Buy Antarktos Rising - A Novel here!

Please forward this e-mail to everyone you know...on the planet! As an underdog in the publishing world I need all the help I can get! Hitting the Amazon.com bestseller list will help change that, but I can't do it without you.

I've also provided a "time-zone buy time chart" for folks not on the East coast.

As always, thanks for your help! Any success I achieve now or in the future is thanks to you.

Greetings everyone!

We’re at the end of the road, folks. This is the FINAL video in the Antarktos Rising/Amazon.com bestseller campaign. In this video I explain the campaign to the viewer, but much of the abuse I suffered throughout the campaign is played out again as I’m hit, flick, sprayed, exposed to harmful gases and on the receiving end of several gallons of water. So it’s informative and funny!

Now before you watch the video, lets go over a few things.

1. Antarktos Rising comes out on August 1st. That’s this Wednesday. So plan on buying the book on Wednesday.

2. But don’t just buy the book on the 1st, buy it between 12 noon and 1pm, eastern time. Amazon compiles their sales rank hourly, so a spike in sales in a single hour will make the most difference. If you can’t do this, your purchase throughout the day will still help, so don’t give up if you can do these hours. For those not on the US east coast, check out my website for the right time in your US time zone: http://www.jeremyrobinsononline.com/.

3. Think big. Are there any birthdays coming up? Want to get a jump on Christmas? Buy multiple copies as gifts! You’ll get free shipping for buying two and a great gift to give. If you want to know the book is good before buying it, consider the blurbs from James Rollins, Steve Alten, Stel Pavlou and Scott Sigler. These guys don’t give out endorsements lightly. Also, check out these two, awesome advance reviews!

Review #1

Review #2


4. If you want to check on the sales rank for Antarktos Rising on the 1st, please do not check it on the book’s product page. Going to the page over and over without buying the book actually hurts the sales rank. If you want to check the rank, visit my Amazon profile page. This page shows all the sales ranks for all of my books.

I think that’s everything. I’ll be sending an e-mail early Wednesday morning with a link to buy the book and a reminder about all this other stuff, so if you have a short memory, I’ve got your back! On with this week’s video!



Thanks for all your help! We’re almost there!

The catch-phrase for the new Antarktos Rising video marketing campaign is catching on. The first video has been seen 3000 times now in its first week. Not quite "viral" status, but the clicks are still coming through and video #2 is now up!

In addition to the first video doing well, a nice side effect of its release occured. Book sales for Raising the Past and Didymus Contingency rose dramatically on the day of the first video's release and the few days following it. Didymus Contingency became an Amazon Canada bestseller (ranked 47 overall and #1 in its categories) and Raising the Past came in at 100 on Amazon Germany, just squeaking into the bestseller list.

Similar results are happening tonight as well with the release of video #2...which you can watch, right here!



Remember, buy Antarktos Rising on August 1, 2007. Help the little guy stand up to the big guns and make the book an Amazon.com bestseller!

Whoohooo. I just received word from my agent that we received and offer for a two book deal....in Spain. While it's not the big gun US publisher we've been gunning for, it's progress and it's great fun. Didymus Contingency will now be available in four languages. How cool is that? At least I'll be able to read a little bit of this one!

The second book in the deal is undecided, but I would guess it will be Antarktos Rising. It has a religious element to it, like Didymus...and honestly, it's a better book!

SPEAKING OF ANTARKTOS RISING...

MONDAY MONDAY MONDAY!

On Monday the 28th of this very month I will be releasing the very first video in a 10 episode viral video marketing campaign for Antarktos Rising. These are 1 - 4 minute long, hysterical videos will be released, once a week, for the next ten weeks until August 1--the book's release date. The hardest thing...and some might say the most interesting thing...about these videos is that I'm in every one of them, suffering all sorts of indignities...like having water dumped on me, being cussed out and being kicked...in sensitive areas. I promise, they're funny!

So until Monday, I bid you farewell.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!

THE


AMAZON.COM BESTSELLER
CAMPAIGN HAS BEGUN!


What the heck is an Amazon.com bestseller campaign? Here's the deal. I need everyone to buy my book from Amazon.com on August 1, 2007 (the book's official release date). The purpose? If everyone buys the book on August 1, it will be launched to the Amazon bestseller list. Why is this important? Beyond being able to say, "I'm an Amazon.com bestseller," being on the list attracts a lot of attention from readers (which in turn sells more books) the media (which can generate more sales) and from larger publishers (who can make a deal on future books...and sell more books). See where this is going? Basically, it's a good way to get noticed...and sell more books.


Is there a moral reason for taking up the cause? Absolutely! My books are published by Breakneck Books, a small indie publisher and we want to show the corporate publishing giants that the little guy can even the playing field. We're the underdog. This is Smurfette going up against Gargamel and I need a few good Smurfs to join the fight. Help defeat corporate America...at least for a few says. How's that for moral? So smurf the power and buy the book on August 1st!

In the next few weeks I'll be uploading several viral video ads that promote the campaign and a podcast preview of the first six chapters to Antarktos Rising. I'll post links to all of that, once they're available. Thanks for taking up the cause!

OTHER GREAT AUTHORS

I'm a huge fan of the genre I write, and read books by the following authors like they were my Grandma Vincent's homemade chocolate bon-bons on Christmas Eve. If you're a fan of any of these authors, you'll feel right at home within the pages of my books.

jamesrollins.com - My favorite author, and my biggest supporter, James Rollins, bestselling author of BLACK ORDER and THE JUDAS STRAIN can do no wrong in my book. I've been a fan since reading SUBTERRANEAN maybe seven years ago.

prestonchild.com - Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child are the fantastic writing duo that brought us THE RELIC, DEEP STORM and BOOK OF THE DEAD. Whether they're writing together or solo, these guys don't miss.

matthewreilly.com - Matthew Reilly's novels are basically action-adventure/thrillers on speed. I love his creative and his non-stop pace. His first novel, CONTEST is not only my favorite of his, but it was also originally self-published...no wonder I like him!

stevealten.com - Steve Alten thinks big...big creatures that is. I discovered his books about two years ago and read one after the other until I ran out, finishing with THE LOCH, which I have to admit was a major inspiration (along with his MEG series) for the novel I just finished writing. I am now proud to say that I am publishing the next book in the MEG series, HELL'S AQUARIUM through my publishing company, Variance.

crichton-official.com - Not including his two most recent book, Michael Crichton is the master of science based thrillers. JURASSIC PARK, THE LOST WORLD, TIMELINE, SPHERE and PREY all rank among my favorite novels.

scottsigler.com Scott is not only a cool guy, but he also writes awesome novels. Ancestor, which I blurbed, is one of my favorite new novels. Look for his future books, INFESTED and NOCTURNAL from Crown Books.

jackdubrulbooks.com - When you're looking for action adventure novels, Jack DuBrul's character, Phillip Mercer, can't be beat. And now that DuBrul is teaming up with the granddaddy of the genre, Clive Cussler, we'll be seeing a lot more from him.

stelpavlou.com - Not only is Stel a stand up Brit and a really nice guy, but he's also written one of the finest books of the last 10 years. DECIPHER is an amazing and smart thriller.
