DARKROOM by Joshua Graham Breaks Out on Opening Night

Yesterday had to have been one of the most exciting days of my life, ranking up there with my wedding, the birth of my children and selling my first book to Howard Books/Simon & Schuster.  I’ll admit, I was a bit nervous about how things would go on the first day of DARKROOM’s release, but even before I could start worrying, tons of reviews, blog posts, interviews, and other such things related to DARKROOM started to flood the internet.

Here’s a recap of some of yesterday’s highlights.


  1. gets a great review from The Washington Post
  2. listed as EreaderNewsToday.com “Book of the Day.”
  3. featured in numerous blogs
  4. receives all 5-star reviews on Amazon.com on opening day
  5. official trailer released at the Online Launch Party (which was well-attended and wildly fun!)
  6. hits 3 bestseller lists on Amazon on opening night, rises to #591 overall in Kindle ebooks (out of over a million titles)
  7. hits the retail bookshelves

All in all, a very fun and exciting day and evening.  After the launch party, my wife and I went out to dinner.  We reflected on how good God has been to us with all the favor and grace He’s shown us through what is happening in our lives.  So many people just popped up yesterday offering their support and  help.  My facebook friends kept me busy interacting and cheering me on (which kept my mind off of nerve-wracking thoughts).  How blessed am I?  Thank you for the emails, the phone calls, the instant messages, and the prayers!  I can’t imagine a more enjoyable launch day!

Now, please check out the official DARKROOM trailer brought to you by Book Candy Studios:
