First off, as a thank you for being on this list, I wanted to give you the rare opportunity to download my most popular book Time Burrito for free. It will only be free on Black Friday, and I hate Black Friday Saturday. It’s a perfect read for that magical day every year where people trample each other for a deal. Speaking of savings, you can get all of the first five Teristaque Chronicles stories for 99 cents on Black Friday too. The next five stories will soon be in a collection as soon as I get to writing them.
In other writing news, I am currently in the middle of writing a trilogy about a group of people who can travel the multiverse. I am on Book 2 as of this newsletter. In the past, I would have attempted to get Book 1 in your hands as soon as possible and probably would have released it today. However, I am going to pull a Netflix on you and release all three books on the same day sometime next year. I encourage you to support me on Patreon if you haven’t already because I will give you all three for the price of one for patrons only. Go here to pledge your support (don’t worry, the charge won’t go through until the books are ready to ship).
In the meantime, consider one of my books as gift for a friend this holiday season. You can see all of them here.
Thank you all for your support. Readers like you are why I continue to do this.
It looks like the project was not successfully funded. However, I am amazed at the support that I did get. We raised $1112! That’s actually enough for me to get the book out with a little bit of nipping and tucking on some of the cover art and editing services. However, because I’m still at home with a broken leg. I need to focus on my injury and getting better. The break happened about a day after I launched, so perhaps it was never meant to be. Either way, I will get the book out and your help would be tremendous in doing so.
What I’m going to do is move the operation from Kickstarter to Patreon. They have a way where you can support me per project. So you chip in and a certain level, and you’ll get a reward similar to the ones offered here and it will only charge when a book is ready to go. I’ll be reaching out again when the Patreon page is up and running (sometime maybe when I can walk again so I can get to the post office to mail those books 🙂 ).
Thank you all for your support! It really meant a lot to see the all the folks backing this project. If you’re looking for something to read in the meantime. I’m going to make the first short story I ever wrote free (2/6/19-2/10/19). It’s called Time Beast and it pairs with song I wrote (and “sang”) for a metal prog band. Which, psst, you can download the who album for free by clicking on “buy” and entering in zero for the price.
Also, consider joining my email list, you’ll get a free book and short story just for joining!
Hope you enjoy the freebies and I’ll reach out when I’m ready to launch the Patreon.
I had a funny realization this past week. It may be the drug induced haze from returning from surgery for my busted leg, but my brother made a good point. He said, “So about this Kickstarter you’re doing? Robin Hood of Couches. You’re writing it because your stuck on a couch all day?”
“No,” I responded, “I already wrote the book and planned the campaign well before all of this happened. Fate just handed me a more specialized relationship with couches than most.”
“Well, I hope you get your Robin Hood.”
Which made me realize, you all are my Robin Hood! Surgical pain is not fun, nor is sitting on the couch all day. But seeing the support The Robin Hood of Couches has gotten has been amazing. I haven’t been able to do much since most of the week, I was in pain or too out of it from the drugs and yet people are still supporting the project!
We are not quite there yet, but as a show of my appreciation, I’m going to put the kindle edition of Othello and Zombies for free on Amazon (22nd-26th only), and if we get to 60% funding by next week, I’ll make Time Burrito free. That’s my most popular book by leaps and bounds.
If you haven’t supported the kickstarter, you can do so here.
Also, if you want to help, tell three people about it. They may just be jazzed by it enough to give you jazz hands.
Time Burrito has had a fantastic release, and I have all of you to thank for it. I really appreciate the support this book has seen. The free promotion was a resounding success of over 5000 downloads, and reviews seem to show people are enjoying the book. If you want to help, consider leaving a review yourself, or tell a friend about the book.
If you’ve read, shared, and loved Time Burrito and are itching for more, I would consider Playlist of the Ancient Dead. It’s a horror, science fiction, comedy with my most unusual premise. If you want to read Time Burrito’s sister book, check out Othello and Zombies. I wrote both of those at the same time. Finally, if my books with a comic edge are in the immortal words of Graham Chapman “too silly,” I would suggest Atmospheric Pressure. It’s a straight up Orwellian thriller that is nearing completion of a sequel.
Thanks again, you rock and/or roll.
For those of you who’ve been following this blog since I’ve been writing silly irreverent humor essays, this book is for you. I finally found a story that’s a perfect marriage of my love of humor and Science Fiction. The good news is that you are going to get a copy of it for free, but I’m going to need your help. Time Burrito is in the running for a publishing deal with Amazon, but it needs nominations to do it.
Nominating doesn’t take much time, and you’ll get a free kindle copy of the book if it’s selected. You can nominate by clicking the link below or the picture of the cat on a burrito flying through space. Be sure to check out the excerpt before you do.
Nominate Time Burrito here.
Here’s a short description of the book: Pete’s food truck at the University of New Mexico isn’t going well. Seniors dare freshman to eat his burritos. Frats use them for pledges and pranks. Rumors fly around campus that they are chupacabra ground up with rat. Pete needs a change, and it comes in the form of a physics experiment gone awry. After being sucked into the past, he stumbles across an ingredient that goes great in one of his creations. First, there was Marty McFly. Then there was Bill and Ted. And now Pete—
