The Teristaque Chronicles

TC-EbookThis year has been quite an adventure for my writing. Even though I just released a book last April, I’m going to release another one on July, 5th. The Teristaque Chronicles Volume I is a space adventure story in the vein of Star Trek. It’s up for pre-order now, so get your copy by following the link above. The book includes the first five short stories in one book, so it’s a great deal.

The Teristaque Chronicles is an ongoing writing project where I’ve been writing parts to a larger series in small novelettes rather than releasing a book. Eventually, each character in the series will have their own stories. Some advance the overall plot, others are just backstory to a particular character. Here’s a description of the first story:

Kal has always been considered too “fragile” to participate in the village activities. Her lithe stature seems to link her to her father, and distance her from everyone else. He left the village to fight in the Teristaque Wars and never returned. She meets Sarge, a strange star species of the human race who seems to know the secret of the patch from her father’s uniform. Kal has always known she is different than her fellow villagers, and finally she may be closer to finding out why.

A couple of short updates

I wanted to just get on the blog to update you with a couple of things I have cooking. The first is my crowd-funding campaign of Time Burrito. If you haven’t pre-ordered a copy, you should do so now. If you do, you’ll get the rare opportunity to CBread the book as I write it. And I must say that I sometimes find myself laughing out loud as I write it. If you were following this blog back in the days where I was just writing comedy, you will really like it. So click on the cat picture and check it out!

The other point of news is Atmospheric Pressure has been really picking up steam. It’s out on audible, and you can get it for free if you sign up for their free trial. The book is read by the talented Mike Alger, a weatherman from Reno. You can get the audiobook version here.

Last but not very least, if you are in the Minneapolis area, you can find Atmospheric Pressure at the local bookstore Magers and Quinn! So please check it out and support local authors, and local bookstores too!

Time Burrito

CB
A cover is worth a thousand words.

On a night with nothing to do, I created a crowd funding campaign with no serious intent on it ever achieving more than just giving myself a laugh. It all started with just a thought: a guy traveling through time for the perfect food truck item. Then when I was searching the internet to make sure there were no other books named Time Burrito, I found this image: cat on a burrito flying through space. This was fate telling me this had to happen! I wrote up a chapter, posted it, and figure that giggling to myself would be the end of it.

Turns out other people want this story to exist too. People are purchasing pre-orders for this story, and not just my mother. People I don’t know. Folks who share a similar sense of humor as myself. Fate has reached out and slapped me aside the head and said “this story must exist.” I’m listening to fate. I’ve put my planned writing project for the later half of 2016 aside to make sure Time Burrito exists.

If you’d like Time Burrito to exist. There are a couple of ways you can help me out. The best way would be follow this link and pre-order a copy or click follow on the project for free. They also give you a $5 credit for signing up with the site, so it’s only $5 to support the project. If I get to 250 pre-orders, it will be published. If I get to 750 pre-orders, it will get the full treatment publishing, the kind the traditional publishers give it. Also, if you pre-order, you’ll get to read chapters as I write them. I’m already up to chapter 4.

Time Agency

Please nominate!

Hi everyone, I was going through some files the other day, and I found the first book that I wrote called Time Agency. I’m going to put it on Kindle Scout, and it will need to get nominations for chance at being published by Amazon. Nominators will get a free Kindle edition if I get published. It’s a win for both of us. Click here to nominate.

Here a short description of the book:

Roman woke on a busy city street. His memory gone. A well-dressed man approached him, and left a locked briefcase at Roman’s feet.
An agent named Nanette tracked Roman. Her agency captured and reprogrammed those who sought to alter the past. But Roman’s case was different than all the rest. Her well-dressed protégé gave Roman a briefcase. Capturing a person seeking to alter the past was routine, a fellow time agent altering the past was cause for panic.
Roman’s memory came slowly back as the technology in his body began to regenerate his neural pathways. Fragments of a past bubbled to his conscience. Roman wasn’t sure if his past was worth reliving. There was a blonde woman from his past, and she disappeared because she was curious about the future.
Roman was on the run because he asked a simple question. A child would ask the same question when learning about time travel in school. What’s the future like? There was so much information about the past. Historians would travel back, blend in, and record “real” history, but Roman was not allowed to travel to the future. Why was future travel restricted to some mysterious-agency division?
The well-dressed man knew the answer to Roman’s question and had the briefcase full the secrets to prove it.

I need your help

Atmospheric_Pressure_01As many of you may have read in your email, Kindle Scout didn’t select my book, Atmospheric Pressure. However, I did get serious consideration as it took them a long time to decide, even after other books were rejected that ended at the same time as mine. If you’d still like a free copy please leave a comment with your Amazon email in this post, and I’ll get one over to you. However, if you could spare the $3 to buy the book that would really help me out. The first month of book sales are the most important in the life of a book. If it gets enough sales, it will appear on many Amazon lists and continue on its own. If it doesn’t, it disappears into obscurity. If you have a Kindle Unlimited account, all you need to do is download it for the sale to count.

Please think of the $3 as your contribution to an independent artist. And if you’d like to donate more than three, you can by gift copies for your friends and family. All you need is their email address. You can purchase the book here.
