All books in Transformation Project series are on 99-cent sale this week.

Life As We Knew It (Book 1)

lifeasweknewitChaos changes everything!

Shane Delaney, a burned-out mercenary with a troubled past, returns home to small-town Kansas to heal his scars and quiet his demons, not planning to stay long enough for the townsfolk to reject who he has become.
He never expected the town to need his deadlier skills.

When a terrorist attack on distant cities abruptly transforms life as they knew it, the people of Emmaus must forge their own disaster plan to survive.

What would you do if the world as you know it ended today?

The people of Emmaus will find out.

AMAZON

 

Objects in View (Book 2)

objectsinviewThirty million people died in the initial attacks. How will the survivors live in the aftermath?

The rain passes and the people of Emmaus emerge to find the world looks much the same as when they hid behind concrete.

Then reality sets in.

Death crept in while they hid. Signs of returning normality offer hope, but the transformation of the United States is underway and electricity and food supplies are the least of their problems.

If your world suddenly spun out of control, where would you go?

AMAZON

 

A Threatening Fragility (Book 3)

A Threatening Fragility Front CoverWhat do you do when what you need for survival clashes with official policy?

The town of Emmaus has survived terrorism and radioactive rain with no help from the government, but that’s all about to change. Things appear to be looking up as power and communications are restored, but a devastating corn field fire puts the town’s survival at risk just as the USDA’s cow cops arrive to coordinate crop redistribution. While Shane and Rob work to save the town, Cai — on the run from the Army for Shane’s actions — comes face-to-face with the reality of martial law.

What’s a law-abiding town of individualists supposed to do when the rules of civil society change? The people of Emmaus must decide.

Daermad Cycle #99-cent #sale   Leave a comment

Does Any One Want to Review My Books?   Leave a comment

I’m especially interested in getting reviews for my more recent books. I find it’s harder to get a review on latter books because of the need to commit to the earlier books in the series.

I will happily gift anyone with the desire with freebies of an entire series, although Daermad Cycle will be on 99-cent sale this coming week. Reviews by Verified Purchasers are always welcome.

Do you like high fantasy or apocalyptic? Or there’s a thin novelette of political satire?

I live in Alaska, which means I am a long way away from everywhere else. It’s a great place for a writer to live because the weather calls you indoors for half the year, but it makes things like book conventions prohibitively expensive.

Image result for image of a author tableI have participated in a few electronic conventions and not found them particularly helpful in selling books – a lot of work usually involving my getting up at an insane time of the morning (time zones, doncha know?) and I didn’t sell any more books than a Facebook advert has.

Alaska is a very artsy community, however, and it’s a community that is isolated, so people plan their own events. My favorite of these is 1st Friday. Local businesses keep their doors open on the first Friday evening of the month and invite the public in.

Imagine:

  • A sporting goods store displaying art work from local artists and is okay with a table where authors can sell books
  • A beauty shop putting out hors d’oeuvres while a local bluegrass band or ensemble group plays in the background and a table where authors can sell books
  • A used book store in a mini-mall hosting a table for local authors to sell their new books
  • A coffee shop that allows writers to take over a table to sell their books while the resident band plays

I cannot take full advantage of this all the time because I buy my books POD from Createspace, so the cost outlay keeps me from doing this up big, but I have several friends from the local writer’s guild who have boxes of books in their garage, so I help cover their tables and I hand out flyers for my books with a discount code. I always sell a couple of books in the week following, so it’s worth it to spend a pleasant evening interacting with people who I enjoy and talking to the public.

What I learn from the public is that not all Alaskans want to read Alaskana, so they are surprised to encounter an Alaska novelist who does not write Alaska-based fiction. Surprised and pleased.  What I’ve also learned is that I really need to put my books into Ingram so I can buy in bulk and take better advantage of the local paperback market.
