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.

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 read 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!
As 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.
My next book Atmospheric Pressure is ready to be shared with the world. And it has some awesome cover art by a buddy of mine named Philip Hughes. Before I unleash it on the world of Amazon, I have a request from all of you. Please nominate the book in Kindle Scout. I need nominations to get a publishing deal, and nominators get a free Kindle edition if I get published. It’s a win for both of us. Click here to nominate.
Here’s a short description of the book:
Olson lives in a city that has been sealed from the outside world. He’s an Eleven Year and close to citizenship. His life is upended when one of the few adults who cares about him commits suicide – or so it appears at first. While investigating, Olson meets a girl named Natalie snooping around his school. He soon learns that one of her friends died under similarly mysterious circumstances. Together, they start looking for answers, and end up discovering the city’s darkest secrets.
