It’s live! At least it is on Amazon. B & N Nook store is taking its own sweet time, but hopefully it will go through by tomorrow. Happy Halloween, everybody!

  1. This is the first Halloween that I have looked forward to in a looong time, thanks!
    Yes, I just did a mini squeal.
    Yes, I am 36 years old.
    Yes, my mom just asked if I was okay….

  2. Oh my god! What a great Halloween present!!! Who needs horror movies when there’s a new R. Lee Smith book to read??
    You’re awesome. 🙂

  3. Even though it is raining here, I have a great big smile on my face because “The Land of the Beautiful Dead” is here. Thank you for this wonderful Halloween treat!!

  4. This just made my day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you! Thank you!! You’re making my decision to watch the rugby World Cup difficult! I’ll have to read during commercials. And my son can miss a year of Trick or Treating!

  5. OMG!! What an amazing surprise! I was too under the weather to go to my planned Halloween party tonight. So I decide to come check up on one of my fav authors and boom! Book fresh out of the oven! Just bought my copy from Amazon and off to read I go!! You just made my day (and my next few sleepless nights devouring page after page :D)

    *saunters back off to bed doing the (to hell with being sick) happy dance*

  6. I have just finished LOTBD and I loved it. I didn’t expect to ’cause I don’t usually like zombies but this story is so original and daring and well written I couldn’t stop reading until I found out what happened to everyone. Thank you R. Lee, now I need a nap.

  7. Hmm looks like I won’t be sleeping tonight – thanks! Youe books will always be an instant purchase, I am so genuinely excited

  8. When I catch up on my sleep tonight (since I stayed up to 3 am last night reading this, then ignored everything today but my couch and pajamas and this book:), I’m gonna write a review on how kick ass and all consuming LOTBD was and how when it ended , I wish it went on for 1000 more pages…..Your a fecking magician with world building and imagination, loved it so much!

  9. I finished it today. And oh, it was brilliant. I loved it. I have been tired for the past few days (usually the only time I get to read is right before bed) but it was so worth it. Azrael and Lan were perfection and their story was epic and beautiful. I’m so grateful for every book you release. Now I’m off to write a review!

  10. Thank you. Thank you for taking your thoughts and putting them into words, into sentences, paragraphs, pages and books. Thank you for giving them to… I should say to the world but I’m going to be selfish and say me. Thank you for having the courage to put yourself out there knowing it could not be so well received. So, yea, thank you….

    And I’m going to be selfish one more time and ask you not to stop.

  11. I just want so say I stumbled on your work a while back when you released Last Hour Of Gann. I don’t read these kinds of books so what hooked me about it, I don’t know, but I adored it. I thought I couldn’t love another book the same after it. Until I read Land Of The Beautiful dead. As an author myself – I read a lot of romance books but never, not ever, have I read a male that captured me the way Azrael did. I would go as far as saying he is the most flawless male character I’ve ever read. I adored the book. I wish I could go back and discover it all over again. You do something utterly unique with your writing. I hope that never stops. Thank you.

  12. R Lee your talant is huge and your imagination… downright frightening. I will never look at shish kabob (meat on a stick) without puking in my mouth just the tiniest bit. I’m on my first reread and love it more the second time around. Thanks so much for sharing!

  13. I read Land Of The Beautiful Dead until four in the morning. Couldn’t put down my kindle. I’m a walking zombie at the office. What a great book. Can’t wait for the next book. Please tell me you are hard at work on the next book.

  14. Only you can make me love Zombies. Seriously, I’ve actively avoided the Zombie love genre – even when I read Troll romances, I scoffed at Zombies.

    I want to support your work! I read your book through Kindle Unlimited. How does this work for the author? Do you get as much financial support as if I’d actually purchased your book through Amazon? Or, would purchasing be better?

  15. Hey,I feel the same as JP. I read LOTBD through Kindle unlimited but I want to support you. How do you get the most money? Through Amazon. That’s how I normally buy.

    • As long as you purchase it through either Amazon or the Nook Store or CreateSpace or some other legitimate site, I am supported and I thank you. At the moment, LoBD is only available through Amazon Kindle or Create Space (it’ll be on Nook in two months or so. I had to promise Amazon no other e-pub site could have it until their promo was done).

  16. R. Lee. I know you don’t like reading reviews but you have a fantastic one of Land of the Beautiful Dead over at Smexybooks. You should check it out. Glad to see your books are getting more press. They are fantastic. Wish you much success.

  17. Dear R. Lee., we don’t actually celebrate Halloween in Russia but this Autumn I’ve been counting down the days until October, 31 ever since I read that the LOTBD would be available (thank God Amazon and Kindle are not yet forbidden in Russia (kidding))).
    I “gulped the book in one breath” (don’t know the English equivalent of the saying) and I want to thank you so much for every bittersweet moment I enjoyed. You have an amazing talent and your imagination has no equal.THANK YOU! Спасибо огромное!

  18. Just finished Land of the Beautiful Dead last night. I couldn’t put it down once I started and had to force myself to get some sleep. It was amazing! I wonder though…do you have a picture of reference you used for Azrael? I am very curious 🙂 But thank you so much for writing another amazing book. I loved it!
