99 cents for a limited time
Please welcome M. Black, and you should check out her book Electric Gardens. It’s 99 cents for a limited time!
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk? Gosh, good one. I love to write on my bed with no one around. I guess my quirk is I can’t write as well with people around me. I need privacy.
In one sentence, tell us all about Electric Gardens. Ripped from family and thrown into a Tin controlled Compound twelve years ago, Lexi019 now believes her father is still alive outside, and she befriends a soul-searching Tin to fight her way out of the prison.
What inspired you to write the book? I love future technology and robots and asking what our world will look like in the future.
How long did this one take to write? About three months.
What’s next for the Electric World series? ELECTRIC GRIDS. Out now! This is a four book series. They are all finished, but the last two books won’t come out till January 2019. This is a relaunch after leaving my publisher Creativia.
What have you learned about writing now compared to when you started? Wow, great questions! I had no idea what I was doing when I first started. I was just a bottle of enthusiasm and passion. But now I know so much about promoting, and book covers, editing, formatting, character ARCS.
What’s on your solar powered iPod in the post apocalypse? Steve Perry’s Don’t Stop Believing!
If you could travel through time and space, what would be your top destination? I’d like to check out the hype of Mars for myself 😉
Tell us about future writing projects. I am done with my next book, a kind of Goonies meets Enders Game, and is currently entitled DRONE WARS. I hope to release it by the summer of 2019. It is really fun!

Desert during the Day of the Dead
From now till November 4th, 2018. Desert During Day of the Dead is free on Amazon! The cover art is by a local New Mexico artist Rudy Lovato. Give him some love on facebook, and tell him how much you like his art.
The free stories don’t end there. I’m hosting a group giveaway with horror, science fiction, and fantasy novels and short stories today. There is something fun about reading some spooky stories on Halloween. I wanted to make sure you had plenty to read tonight. So support myself and other authors and grab some free stories.
Grab your audiobook copy for free on Audible!
That’s right. You’re reading that correctly. The Kindle edition of Atmospheric Pressure 2 is 99 cents from now till September 14th. But that’s not all, it’s now on audiobook, and if you sign up for a free trial of Audible for one month, you get the audiobook for free! You don’t even have to stay a member, but if you do remain a member, I have many of my books on audio and you can get them for free too with your membership. Make sure you use this link to snag your copy, it helps me out. You can get the first book here. I’m also part of two group giveaways this month, one for Dystopian and Post Apocalypse and the other for general Science Fiction & Fantasy so go grab some free copies of various books while you can!
Thank you all for your support.
One last favor, if you like my books tell a friend and leave a review. The small stuff helps in a big way.
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 Amazon, Nook, iTunes, Kobo, Smashwords.
Time Burrito will also be 99 cents on Kindle till Aug 23rd. You can’t even buy a real burrito for a buck, much less the one assembled from the perfect ingredients throughout history.
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.
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.

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.
