Orion is dead again. Whether death comes from a stab wound, a bullet to the brain, or just plain dumb luck, he always comes back. He is glad to have the second chances because there is a princess in each life who seems to be in trouble. Whether she’s a nurse in the Vietnam war or medieval English royalty, Orion is determined to win her over.
I’m pleased to announce that ORION is officially out and free on kindle until 5/23/18. Better yet, you can get a paperback copy or an audiobook version too! You can find all the editions of ORION here. Did you know that the audiobook version is free if you sign up for audible? Thank you to everyone who supported this book. I truly appreciate it.
If you want to help out, there are a couple things you can do. The first and easiest way is to get your friends to download it! Free promotions are a very good way for indie authors like myself to get noticed because it seeds the “Customers who bought this, also bought this,” list on Amazon.The other thing you can do is leave a review. They seriously help out a whole bunch. Reviews are how books get noticed. Sorry friends and family, you cannot leave reviews, while I know you will be unbiased, the general public and Amazon do not. However, friends and family can still help, tell your friends to download it. It’s free! You can’t beat free!
Thank you all again and enjoy ORION. I had fun writing this story. I hope you have fun reading it.
Who would have thought that I would have such an appropriate book cover for what would be my last Kindle Scout campaign? I want to thank you all for supporting ORION. You folks are truly what keeps me going. So let’s get to business. How do you get ORION for free?
It’s pretty simple. May 20th through the 23rd the book will be a free download for Kindle on this link here. I couldn’t do it any sooner because I need to book advertisers or else it would disappear in the mountains of literature on Amazon.
Lastly, if you want to support me financially speaking, you can either preorder ORION or buy the many in my back catalog (I recommend Time Burrito).
Bonus Lastly, if you think you know someone who might like one of my books, lend them it on your kindle, recommend on social media. It’s the small things that help in a big way.
Thank you all again, and I will remind again in May when the free download is up and running.
I wanted to give you all a quick update. As many of you know, Kindle Scout is no more. According to Amazon, ORION could still be selected for a publishing deal. If it is selected, you’ll have till May 31st to get the free copy if you nominated. The far more likely option of it not being selected will still result in a free copy. However, in order to make the most of a free promotion, I need to book advertisers. I can only do that with about a month or two before the free period.
So what that means is the book will be on preorder until the ad dates because it’s always better to run those promotions closer to the release date. I have received many comments from folks interested to read the rest of the tale. Thank you all for those. Seriously, they keep me going. You will get to read it, but in order to make sure ORION isn’t buried under the 500 other books released this month alone, I need to be smart about my release. I like to be transparent about what happens behind the scenes so you know why are you waiting, instead of just waiting.
Thank you all for your support,
There are only days left to nominate ORION and get a free copy if it selected. Your support is critical to the success of this book. The more people who nominate, the more people will see the book. Even though Time Burrito wasn’t selected, your help let it reach a wider audience, larger than I had anticipated.
If you haven’t done so, click here, check out the excerpt, and then click nominate if you like what you see. I appreciate the support you have given me. I want to give a little back. For the next five days 4/1/18-4/5/18, Living Material Inside — Open Immediately will be free. Time Burrito will be 99 cents from 4/1/18-4/7/18, a perfect gift to brighten a friend’s day!
Did you know you can find info about any of my books by clicking the book link to the side and then clicking on any of the books?
For those of you who have been following this project for a while, it started off with the title Life 2.0. After much deliberation to preserve the surprise ending, I am going to title it ORION. It’s now ready for the world, and I need your help getting it published with Amazon’s press.
All you need to do is click the book to the right, read the excerpt, and then click the nominate button. For your trouble, you’ll get a free copy of the book when it is released! If you really want to help me out, maybe convince a couple friends to nominate too. I appreciate all the support you all have given me.
The wait for new material is finally over! Grannork’s Burden will drop 12/31/17. If you want to get it in the wee hours of the last day of the year, it’s up for preorder. In this installment, you’ll get to see how Grannork ended in a Teristaque prison, and Kal will find out some vital information about her father.
That’s not all. If you need to catch up with the entire series, the Teristaque Chronicles Datapack 1 will be on sale for 99 cents from 12/28/17-1/2/18. The first datapack includes the first five stories of the series. Here’s the description of Part 6:
After stealing a Teristaque prototype, the entire galaxy is out to get Kal and her crew. Grannork’s brother, Tretkik, makes his presence known as a player on the galactic stage, by sending an armada of warships to settle the bad blood between them. Kal won’t let the family discord take down the best gunner in the Milky Way. Not that she isn’t struggling with issues of her own as Maker devises a DNA test that may settle the question of her parentage once and for all.
The free story will be The Government Shutdown 12/28/17-12/30/17.
People have been asking me about getting that Time Burrito artwork on tee-shirts, hoodies, coffee mugs, etc. Now you can get them and save 15% on the order! Stop by my shop Aaron’s Stuff for official Time Burrito Gear. In case you need the 15% code to enter into the cart at checkout, here it is: welcome-100236443 Offer only valid now until 12/5/17.
All the stuff is printed by a company called Spreadshirt which is a member of the BBB, and they take the lion’s share of each sale. But if you do buy something, that will give me some funds to kick off my next project. I also wasn’t sure if people wanted my name on their shirt, so I have two versions, one with my name, and the other with just Time Burrito. I will see how they do as to whether or not people want the full book cover on the shirt or just the fun stuff.
And because I don’t want to leave you without free stuff and deals. The Kindle edition of Playlist of the Ancient Dead is on sale for 99 cents from now until 11/25/17, and Kal’s Revenge is free until 11/25/17.
Enjoy! And thank you for your support!
