About this product Product Information Deep in the hollows of Georgia's wild Appalachians, the ghost of a young girl can sometimes be seen in the moonlight, still wandering the paths of Black Pine Mountain, where she vanished more than fifty years ago.
Now another little girl has gone missing, the only child of a troubled backwoods couple guarding a dark secret of their own. Flap Tucker, a Zen private eye with a knack for finding missing things, is on his way from Atlanta to the eerie little town of Lost Pines. Beautiful nightclub owner Dalliance Oglethorpe has come with him.
Together they will play their parts in the most terrifying kind of ghost story: one that's real--and not over yet. Following a twisted trail that leads from the down-home warmth of Miss Nina's renowned FOOD establishment to the terrifying raptures of charismatic snake handlers, from shadowy forests where old tragedies lie buried to the cold realities of modern-day evil, Flap Tucker and his special talents are a little girl's last hope against a ghost's final revenge.

Only this time, we went BIG. And the second time we employed the Land Rush technique, it resulted in 15, copies of The 4-Hour Body sold in less than 3 days hours. All of the packages were broken up into Slideshares, so we could easily track which packages were being viewed the most, and which ones were converting.
We had packages for so many levels: 1 book, 3 books, 5 books, 10 books, 30 books, books, books, 1, books, 5, books, and even 10, books. For orders that were copies, we had readers email us their Amazon receipts, then we fulfilled their bonus gifts. For orders that were between 30 and copies, we had readers purchase a ticket on Eventbrite.
Then we had CEO-Read ship the books to them, and the companies we partnered with fulfilled their bonus gifts. Handling logistics for 15, orders was crazy, but our biggest regret was that we offered TOO many choices. People were confused about what to buy. We should have just done 1 book, 3 books, 10 books, 30 books, books, and 1, books. Still, it was a huge success.
