My First Two Years as an Author

My First Two Years as an Author

It was roughly two years ago today that I started my blog and released my first short story, DAISY, and set my first nonfiction work, Understanding IT. I wanted to take a step back to look at the performance of my various projects, and I realized something very important:  Advertising is incredibly important, and something that I've completely neglected.

Free Weekend: Understanding IT & DAISY

Over Labor Day, (4 - 8 September) both Understanding IT and DAISY will be completely and totally free; no strings attached or reviews required.  Simply click on one of those links to download the book to your kindle compatible device!  

[DAISY] was an adorably quirky story, with intelligent themes. It exceeded my expectations and left me smiling, both quite surprising for a short story.

Understanding IT is a "crash course" introduction into everything Information Technology (Databases, Statistics, IT Service Model, etc); aimed for the professional who has to carve out time on the train ride to work, or over lunch. DAISY is a romantic comedy from the point of view of a quirky, romantic, and well-intentioned artificial intelligence, DAISY, who spices up her life of targeted advertising by playing match maker with unsuspecting users.

If you're interested in more of my work, you can check out NASA Down, my first short story, and read up on my upcoming book, Voyager for free. Both stories are realistic science fiction narratives about climate change, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI), and the effects these transnational issues will have on humanity.

The premise is simple: Every Science Fiction story that I've ever read either assumed that Earth had globalized under one central government before contact with extraterrestrials and we were able to survive the encounter, or we had not globalized and we were defeated. I aim to fill that niche in the Science Fiction community; essentially, I aim to write a geopolitical drama with E.T. playing a leading role.

Free Weekend: DAISY

My first short story, DAISY is free this weekend on Amazon as part of a promotional event.  However, not only can you pick up the 22 page short story for free this weekend, but if you leave a candid (favorable or critical) review on Amazon or Goodreads, I'll throw in a free advanced review copy of Understanding IT before it releases on July 4th.

Amazon not your style?  Don't worry, once the introductory 90 day period of Amazon exclusivity wears off, my book(s) will be made available on Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and the Apple store.  And - more to the point - each new platform will have its own sales and freebie weekends!
