The paperback will be out as soon as it passes the review phase but the kindle version is ready now, now, now! It’s called The Information Broker. (I bet you already guessed that). As with our previous stories, I’m sure games and other shenanigans related to this new work will be forthcoming. For now… I’m just going to leave this here…
But not quite sure what to get those special people in your life?
Well, you’ve come to the right place because I have plenty of suggestions for you. The Kingdom wholeheartedly endorses the following wonderful books:
Life on Earth is predicted to end on 15 July 2015. But the oncoming megatons of rock and ice break up shortly before impact. Now humanity must live in a world most believed would not exist. Across the planet, people are haunted by the future they did not fear, and even those who did not embrace death must face the consequences of others’ decisions. A collection of twelve stories about rebuilding hope.
*Shameless plug: I wrote one of the stories in this collection*
Here’s one of my favorite passages from the book, which is why I chose to tease you all with it by placing it on the back cover:
Shift danced the Erratic Sun in a life or death waltz among the stars. All the while, Gillian and Dane monitored the engine’s performance and the slow reduction of the ship’s shields and Trink, Hatcher and Captain Dadam did their best to score hits against the modified freighters that had ambushed their departure from Corment. The hull shuddered equally under the erratic jerks to avoid incoming fire, sporadically punctuating Shift’s smooth handling of his evasive protocols, and under hits to the ship the pilot wasn’t able to dodge. With each impact, the curses the pilot muttered grew in intensity and their creativity fell off. The spray of laser fire missing their targets, spreading out from the Erratic Sun’s three gun turrets, ran to the limits of the gunners’ visions before being swallowed by the darkness of space. Chaos reigned.
*Another shameless plug, as if it weren’t already obvious: I wrote this story with Revis*
And the best part of these gifts is that not only will they be thoroughly enjoyed by whoever you gift them to, but the purchase of them is also a gift to the authors you are then supporting. In this case, we are talking about me here, so thank you in advance.
Local, as in you are all my faithful kingdomites, right? Right!
Nothing says, “I love what you write,” like buying an author’s book. As luck would have it, I happen to have a fun book ready for you to buy right here: The Erratic Sun
Yep, just click the link, select Kindle or paperback, add it to your cart, check out, and then enjoy the heck out of it when it shows up in your mailbox.
And then do you know what says, “I love you more than the rest?” Writing a review or two (or forty-two) and leaving them all over the internet for other people to find.
You could buy a signed copy of the book by sending $20 to me via: PayPal
If you decide to go that route, send me an email (djmatticus @ yahoo dot com) to let me know so we can talk inscription for the autograph and so I can get the address you want it shipped to. (Also, some restrictions apply. That price is for US only. I’ll happily ship anywhere in the world I’m allowed to, but I’ll need to factor in the appropriate costs if you are in Azerbaijan. Again, when in doubt or if you have any questions, just shoot me an email and we will figure it out together.)
So, I happen to have (not yet, really, but I will because I’ve already ordered them) a bunch of extra copies of The Erratic Sun… They are just waiting to be signed and mailed to the winners of the various contests I’m going to host in the coming days.
I’m going to start simple. If you want a signed copy, leave a comment (hopefully promising to also leave a review once you’ve finished reading) and before I post the next contest I will use a random number generator to pick the winning comment. w
That’s simple enough, right? Leave a comment and you could be the winner.
Who wouldn’t want that? Heck, I helped write the book and I want a signed copy of it!!
So, what are you waiting for? Leave a comment already!
The e-reader (Kindle) version is available today, and the paperback will be ready in a couple days for the purists out there. Don’t worry, we’ll be keeping you updated on that pertinent information.
To kick off the festivities around our pub date, I asked Revis some questions about our story (The Erratic Sun) and writing in general:
Matticus: Why do you think people will like this book?
Revis: I think people will like this book because it has a little bit of everything. It’s fun and exciting, but there’s also some suspenseful and emotional moments. Personally, I think it’s the greatest book ever written. I may be biased, though.
