Atmospheric Pressure 2 Is Almost Here

Atmospheric Pressure 2

Coming 8/22/18

In celebration of the upcoming release of Atmospheric Pressure 2 on 8/22/18, I am participating in a group giveaway of Dystopian fiction. So download to your heart’s content. But that’s not all, I’m giving away the first Atmospheric Pressure book for free on most reader platforms out there. That’s right, it will be on AmazonNook, iTunesKoboSmashwords.

Lastly, you might be wondering, what gives! You got the first one on Nook, but not the second. WTF! In effort to be completely transparent, I’m bound by Amazon’s terms of service to offer Atmospheric Pressure 2 exclusively on Amazon. Basically, I have the book in Kindle Unlimited, which means I can’t publish anywhere else. At the moment, I make much more in Kindle Unlimited with my books then I do in sales. Whatever money I do make goes right back into ads, editing, and cover art. Until sales channels like Nook and iTunes may offer me better opportunity than Kindle Unlimited, I need to stay in the program to keep the writing going.

Lastly, if you enjoy the series, consider leaving reviews for both of the books. Honest reviews help other people find books they love. I also would never ask you to write anything, but what you feel about the book. Also if you want to help me out monetarily, consider pre-ordering.

Here’s the description:

Olson is trapped in a city that is on the hunt for him. He has nowhere to run as the whole place is sealed from the toxic atmosphere. Nobody wants to help him until he meets a scientist who knows his true origins. Meanwhile, back home, his friends are caught under the thumb of a brutal regime, until they decide to fight back.

Announcing Atmospheric Pressure 2

Atmospheric Pressure 2The second book in the Atmospheric Pressure series is finally ready to be released. In celebration of the occasion, I am going to giveaway the first book for free. You can snag your copy with many other books in this group giveaway until 7/15/18. Traditionally, I have given away my books during a free promotion near release day. As I attempt to move my business model to focus on book sales, I will not be doing a free giveaway for Atmospheric Pressure 2, but rather a 99 cent promotion. Keep watching this space for details.

AI Created This Demotivational Poster

The above image was created by an AI attempting to make motivational images. I thought it was creepy and pretty relevant to a story idea I had, so I thought I’d share it with all of you. You’ll hear about that story here first. In the meantime, here are the deals for August.

The dystopian novel Atmospheric Pressure is on sale for only 99 cents August 3rd-7th. I am very close to finishing the first draft of the sequel to the book, so this is a great way to get caught up with the series.

I also have four free stories for you. The first two stories are an epic space opera series and can be found here:

Kal’s Fall
Kal’s Truth (Limited Time Only)

Also the first two stories of the time travel comedy Sperm Donor for a Cosmic Paradox:

Sperm Donor for a Cosmic Paradox

Customer Service Scientist (Limited Time Only)

Enjoy, and don’t forget to leave a review. They really help me out.

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!

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.
