Fallout available now to pre-order

You can pre-order Fallout, the book Lisa Henry and I co-wrote, at Smashwords and Amazon now; release date is April 17. It will also be available in paperback eventually. Soon. Once I sort out the formatting *presses fingers to temples and massages headache away*

We’ve been really fortunate with the pre-release reviews.

Optimist Kings Wench said, for Boy Meets Boy Reviews:

They hit it out of the park here . . . this felt like something special . . . It’s a dark roller coaster of emotions but it’s also, paradoxically, beautiful.

Elizabetta on Goodreads said:

I could not put this down. Gripping and mesmerizing. A perfect blend of apocalyptic horror and survival against all odds that manages a thread of a love story, too.

I learned a lot – and I mean a LOT – from writing with Lisa, and I’m so fortunate she suggested we do a project together. I mean, come on, she’s freakin’ amazing. There wasn’t one second where it felt like work.

Now please, as a personal favour, buy a copy so she’ll want to write with me again some time.

Now read Kraken for free . . . for a certain value of ‘free’

I’ve put Kraken into the KDP Select program on Amazon. This means it’s free to read if you’re a member of Kindle Unlimited.

I had conflicted feelings about this, because I know many readers, like me, want to support an alternative option to Amazon, and one that offers a variety of formats. Plus, Smashwords is DRM-free, which is a big hairy deal.

However in the last six months I sold 17 copies of Kraken on Smashwords. Don’t get me wrong: that’s 17 more copies than I ever thought I’d sell for cold, hard cash (or for an intangible, somewhat imaginary, socially-agreed-upon concept of “money”, for that matter). But it does mean I don’t feel like I’m depriving the masses of their right to tentacle porn by making it an Amazon-exclusive title.

So anyway *shrugs* I thought, let’s try it, yeah? If you are a member of Kindle Unlimited, or you have a friend who is, the adventures of Cy and Will are available to read for no money down, no future payments, no credit, no chargebacks.
