Upcoming Book Events

I’m always trying new ways to reach readers.

Adrian, one of my readers, informed me a download link for the audiobook Final Duty didn’t work. That started a chain of events that hasn’t yet ended. However, in the next couple of weeks, the Final Duty audiobook will be in much wider distribution. Check out the graphic for just some of the places you’ll be able to buy it.

With wider distribution, I’m hoping to keep the price low, but that leads to a problem. With audiobooks, authors can suggest prices, but they don’t have direct control as they do with ebooks. Also, I want to give the Final Duty audiobook away to readers of my newsletter. That’s difficult to manage because if the audiobook is given away the host site doesn’t make any money. I’m still working on that part.

In related news, by the end of the year, the ebook version of Race to Refuge and Final Duty will go into wide distribution. For more than a year, these two ebooks have only been available on Amazon, however, they will soon be offered on Nook, Kobo, Google Play, Draft2Digital, and other sites.

If you think another of my books needs to be in wider distribution let me know in the comments section.

A bestseller since its release!

This has been an exciting weekend!   

Even before it was released, Race to Refuge, my latest 16,000-word short story, had climbed onto the Amazon short story bestseller lists. On Friday morning, March fifteenth, when Amazon released the story I checked and was thrilled to see it at number seven on the Science Fiction & Fantasy Short Story List. But, it kept climbing all day. By evening it had reached the number two slot on the bestseller list.

The next morning I checked again and discovered it had reached the number one position on the science fiction list and the number ten spot on the literature and fiction list. I’m writing this blogpost on Sunday and the story is still in the number three position.

All I can say is thank you, my readers!   

In this story, University of Washington students Ryan Palmer and Amy decide to bugout of Seattle when international tensions threaten to boil over into a world war. In normal times their journey to Ryan’s childhood home in rural Idaho would take less than a day. But these aren’t normal times. As they travel supplies become scarce, gasoline becomes impossible to buy, people panic and nuclear war erupts. Together they must confront their worst fears as they fight to reach home and refuge.

Race to Refuge Available for Pre-order

My first book of 2019 is available now!

Pundits say that the second-best promotion an author can have is finishing their next book. Well, the graphic design and editing of Race to Refuge flew by and my first release of 2019 is now available for pre-order for only 99 cents.

I’ve agreed to give Amazon the exclusive right to sell the book for ninety days. After that, I plan to offer the book on all the major platforms.

In Race to Refuge, college student Ryan Palmer wakes up to his girlfriend Amy pounding on the door. She snaps on the television and he learns that the tense world situation is spiraling toward war. As the news grows worse, they decide to bugout of Seattle and go to his parent’s home in Idaho. But panic buying makes finding gasoline impossible and chaos soon follows.

The best promotion an author can have is readers that tell other readers. Please, click on the book cover and order Race to Refuge and, when you’re done reading, please leave a review!
