Amazon is going to include Time Burrito for 99 cents in its Kindle Daily Deal section on Friday, 1/29/21. For those of you not in the publishing industry, that’s pretty big news for me. It means that I will access a whole bunch of new readers, who normally wouldn’t see the book among the millions of titles Amazon has for sale.
While it’s not the kind of news that allows me to quit my day job, pop the Champaign, and write full time. It’s definitely a good step in that direction. So, if you like what I write, and would like to see me dedicate more hours of my day writing it, it’s a good time to leave a review or tell a friend, every little bit helps.
I’m also going to put The Bison Agenda up for sale for 99 cents on that day too. I would have done the third book, but Amazon lets you discount your books only so many times in a given period. Also, my apologies to my international friends. I don’t know if it will be on sale elsewhere, but would love to hear reports, so I know what to expect in the future.
As far as Atmospheric Pressure 3 is concerned, I am almost done with the first draft. Then I go to the dreaded editing phase. That’s where I have the least fun with writing, but probably the most important step. After that it’s off to my editor for grammar checking, and my cover artist, Phil Hughes, who has done all three novels, will be busy working at the cover art as well.
Finally, I want to share with you this article I read recently about climate change. While I personally have a more optimistic view on life, and believe people can and will solve the problems, (there is also good evidence to support that belief). I also value being aware of the dangers we face.
That’s part of the reason, why I wrote the Atmospheric Pressure series to begin with. Science Fiction can act as a canary in the coal mine. The dramatic stories of doom, death, and destruction are the wake up call. Rather than throw our hands up in the air and say, “there’s nothing I can do about that,” why not shift our mentality to is there something I can do?
While Dystopian narratives might leave us with the feeling that the world is going to hell in a hand basket, I wanted to end mine with a message of hope and empowerment. So, the third atmospheric pressure book will have an experimental ending for it’s genre. I’ll be curious to see what you all think about it.
While you are waiting for Atmospheric Pressure 3, why not check out an author friend of mine’s book:
A naturally immune girl. A genetically modified boy. A search for a cure that may cost them everything…
Fifteen-year-old Jema Walker would do anything to protect her sibling. But she never imagined they’d be facing another global flu pandemic. Sent to a remote desert location for safety, Jema is horrified when her sister contracts the deadly virus.
Caught in a conflict of impossible choices, Jema teams up with a specially bred eighteen-year-old boy to find a remedy. But when they’re forced to go rogue and abandon their community, she fears the ruling adults only want them for their uniquely protected DNA.
Can the duo hunt down an antidote before they fall victim to ruthless experiments?
Lovelock Ones is the first book in the action-packed Lovelock YA dystopian science fiction series. If you like bold heroines, strong heroes, and post-apocalyptic settings, then you’ll love Tricia Copeland’s thrilling fight for survival.
Thank you for reading!
