Hello lovely readers,
So… news abounds! First of all, I’ve written a new book. This one is a dystopian sci-fi thriller called Privilege (book one of the Privilege Wars).
I’m going to post the first chapter here in a few moments, so check the blog if you’re interested in learning more.
I’m trying something new with this book. I published my previous novels under my indie imprint Secret Tree Press, but this time around I’m trying something a bit more ambitious: Kindle Scout.
Haven’t heard of Kindle Scout yet?
No problem, I’m here to help! According to their website, “Kindle Scout is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books. It’s a place where readers help decide if a book gets published. Selected books will be published by Kindle Press and receive 5-year renewable terms, a $1,500 advance, 50% eBook royalty rate, easy rights reversions and featured Amazon marketing.”
Needless to say, this would be an amazing opportunity to reach a wider audience, but I can’t do it without your help.
If you’ve got a minute (literally, I don’t think it takes much more than that…) I’d love your help.
1) Click on the URL for my campaign:
2) Check out the campaign, and if you like what you see, please select the “Nominate Me” button at the bottom of the excerpt.
That’s it. Easy peasy. OH! And as a bonus, if the book is selected, you’ll receive a free copy to read for your trouble!
I’m keeping my fingers crossed, and really hope we get selected.
Thanks for reading,
I had to look up Inb4, but yes, thank you for that. People who spout the “privilege not a right mantra don”t really think about what that means. If I go to the DMV, pass written, vision, and driving tests, and have appropriate proof of age, identity, residence, etc., I have a RIGHT to a driver”s license. A “privilege is something that can be denied for trivial or no reason – e.g., I can deny someone the “privilege of hunting on my property for the simple reason that I don”t like the cut of their jib, or whatever. In short, the right/privilege distinction has little if any governmental significance in modern times.
Yes, it’s an interesting time we live in! I’m fascinated by human behavior and perceptions, and how they play out within a society.
Also, regarding inby – I learned SO MUCH researching this book about mining and the incredibly frightening situations miners can find themselves in. I don’t think I’d have the strength to go into a mine, much less work one as a career. It gives me great respect and empathy for the people who have done, and continue to do, jobs like this.
Anyhow, thanks so much for the comment, and for reading!
