My Book – reduced? What the fudge?

After my book has soared the heights of position 11 on the Fantasy books list on Amazon and then dived to the murky depths of position 2,987 – I decided I should try and promote it.

 

It is on sale for the next couple of days to all the blogging faithful who may like a copy. Now’s a good time to buy (cue all my mates moaning that they paid top whack!) The Kindle Countdown Deal is on.

 

I have already had some great reviews from unknown readers and fellow bloggers, check them out on Amazon, you may like what you see.

Thanks for dropping by.

The clique of geek – Science-fiction

Do you have to be a geek to enjoy science fiction?

Is there a stigma to the genre?
Is the news right? Is the geek economy in turmoil (at least I think that’s what the newsreader said?)

My hair is neither lank or dyed black, I even wash occasionally – yet I have chosen to write a science fiction book.
Why?

Simple.

It chose me.
The story and characters emerged and told me where they needed to live, and when.
They told me to forget any illusions of literary credit or note, credibility or ease of marketing. They flew me to a saturated market and kicked me out of the zeppelin.

In short, they screwed me over.

I have exacted my revenge by putting them all through the wringer, I’ve killed a few of them off. Maimed them. Dangled a love interest to get their hopes up, then dashed them on the rocks of hubris.
(And let me tell you, dangling a love interest can often get you into trouble!)

With them all put to rights, I am hoping to soon stop cringing when I talk of the genre of my book. To quell any embarrassment or misplaced concern…and if I can’t?

Well I can always hop into a time machine, onto a dinosaur, into a black hole or bestride a BMX with a hoodie wearing telephone addict and escape.

I mean any escape is good, right?
