Greetings ladies and gentlemen.

Please note that on this day, June 2nd 2006, Overlord : Key to the Freedom is now on sale !

You may buy it directly from the publisher ( ) for as cheap as $11.95 (USD).

You may also wait a little longer and buy it from your local book store or from Amazon.

**EDIT** : If your local book store doesn't currently carry my book, they can order it for you !

Cool, do I have to have a bank account? Cause it's usually impossible for me to buy things from internet, as I don't have a bank account... :rolleyes:


Master Sergeant
Thanks guys.

Well, not really... As long as you have acces to a credit card... (Your mother's credit card for example. But ask for her permission first, okay ? ;) )


Master Sergeant
Thanks everyone...

I made a poster for the promotion of my book. With the cooperation of several local shopkeepers (and hoping that the Office de la langue Française won't start messing with those brave blokes), I should be able to sell a few copies around here.

I'll print them tomorrow and start distribute them this week or in the next one.

Feel free to comment about my poster... Sorry for the screenshot, but the forum doesn't allow me to upload more than 19.5 KB for a .DOC file.

May be you already knew it, but it's something I just learned while looking on PA's message board...

If your local book store doesn't carry my book, you can ask them to order it for you. I think it should answer your question, Hussars. ;)


Master Sergeant

My book is now on So you can now order it from them. However, the price of the book is a little higher... $14.95 USD.

You can also write a review there... For the ones who already received their copies.

Here is the link :

Don't ask me why my cover shows up green on their web site... I don't know.


Master Sergeant
£9.50 ? That makes over $20 CDN ! Damn...

But as Les said, may be you could have it cheaper at your local book store... Book stores get lower prices when they order from PublishAmerica. They get a 5% discount when ordering from their distributor (Ingram) and a 20% discount when ordering directly from PA.

The reason why the difference is so big is because Ingram accept returns for unsold books, while PA doesn't.

My book is now available in every Barnes Noble book stores for $14.95 USD. (Or $13.45 USD for B&N members.)
Barnes - Home Page

Also, as you may know, it is impossible for me to know exactly how many books I have sold before I receive my paycheck. (Which should be around the first week of September.)

However, I can have a rough idea by looking at my ranking on several web sites that are selling my book.

So here we go (note that this is my ranking so the lower the number is, the more I sell) :

Amazon (US) : 1,751,593
Amazon (UK) : 313,825
Amazon (Canada) : None... In other words, I didn't sell a single God damned book within Canada.

Here are the different links if you are interrested :

USA : Overlord: Key to the Freedom: Books: Yan Tremblay
UK : Overlord: Key to the Freedom: Books: Yan Tremblay
Canada : Overlord: Key to the Freedom: Gateway: Yan Tremblay

I bought and read your book the other week Maestro, I enjoyed reading it.

Thanks. Most of the critics I read (on several forums) were good. The lone "bad" critic was a guy telling me that the narrator was too present (he would have prefered the book to be more "movie-like"). I put "bad" between quotes because the critic was good overall... It was the only point he disliked.

I haven't seen the book yet. I'll make a point to look for it this evening while I'm out to the mall.

Thanks, NS. It's hard to advertise a book... I contacted many newspapers and TV/radio stations to try to be interviewed (as my publisher suggested). I didn't succeed... yet.
