Intraterrestrial is an Amazon Best Seller!

So, I woke up this morning to find a little orange tag hanging around Intraterrestrial‘s neck—or rather, on the book’s Amazon page— which happened to be a dream come true:

Intraterrestrial Amazon Best Seller science ficion alien invasion

Now, to be fair, that #1 status is only within the crazy-cool genre known as “Alien Invasion Science Fiction,” but nonetheless, Intraterrestrial soared through the stars yesterday: in the overall paid Kindle store, it managed to float all the way to the #194 spot!

The cosmic dance only lasted for a little while, of course, but a huge thank you to everyone who picked up a copy and/or showed their support. As you all go flying into the furthest reaches of the universe, I hope you enjoy the ride!

Pale Highway is Now Available on Paperback!

Big news for all of you who have been waiting patiently for this day: the wait is over, and I’m excited to announce that the official paperback edition of Pale Highway is finally available on Amazon!

It’s here!



In the midst of this exciting news, the Pale Highway blog tour has been rolling on successfully! I have a new interview with BookView, where I talk some more about the writing of Pale Highway.  In addition, some new reviews have popped up, including this incredible analysis of the book by Don Sloan:

This brilliant sci-fi work is a tour-de-force of great writing and meticulous research, all wrapped in a scientific thriller that will have you hoping that Gabriel can solve the life-threatening dilemma before it’s too late — both for him, and for mankind.

Five stars-plus for Pale Highway. It is a striking example of what can be achieved when imaginative writers tackle socially significant themes. We’re all the beneficiaries.

I’ve also been honored by a review by LuAnn Braley of Backporchervations.  Be warned, it’s a very spoiler heavy review, with lots of spoilers from the later sections of the novel, but right at the beginning of the review she writes what is now one of my new favorite quotes of all time:

To have written Pale Highway, Nicholas Conley either really IS a unique alien creature or I want some of what he puts in his coffee!

And let’s not forget the review by Michael S. Fedison,  writer of The Eye-Dancers, who says:

Pale Highway by Nicholas Conley is at once a tautly written sci-fi/fantasy novel, a probing character study, a medical thriller, and a literary gem that explores the complexities and nuances of the human condition.

More reviews to come! I salute all of you with a cup of coffee, and for those of you who’ve been waiting for this paperback announcement, I thank you for your patience. Cheers!
