Walk The Fire 2: Podcast update

WTF2 squareHi folks, just a quick post to answer a question I’ve gotten from a number of people in the past couple weeks. Namely, “hey John, where’s Walk The Fire 2?”

I teased a September lauanch, but then my family had a car accident. No one’s badly hurt but it cost me weeks of time…and my wife’s still off nursing a concussion worthy of an NFL linebacker!

Long story short: Farlost will continue a few more weeks before Walk The Fire 2 hits the airwaves! So now you know, and knowing is half the battle! Stay tuned, readers & listeners!

Audible Audiobook Giveaway

51XYhJXKveL._SL300_ My first two Audible audiobook titles are now available, featuring revised text and all-new, high quality recordings performed by awesome new narrators.

‘Last Man Home’ is a quirky mix of serious and humorous science fiction, featuring grizzled war-vets facing off against an alien in the woods.

‘The List’ is a horror (well, more suspense and dark fantasy) piece set in the days leading up to WW2, about a british spy investigating a secret auction for a mysterious List.

To celebrate my launch on Audible I’m giving away five audiobooks! Note: you’ll need to use your Amazon.com account (or create one) to access the download.

To get one of these free books, just tweet or blog this link to my Amazon author page & let me know! I’ll update this post when all five are spoken for.

[UPDATE: They’re all gone, folks! Remember, if you grabbed one, a review on Audible would be much appreciated.]

Free Fiction: Marked Men

MarkedMen600x800 If you love something, set it free. Well, okay, maybe this isn’t quite what the saying had in mind, but I was so blown away to crack the top thousand ebooks on Amazon (out of millions) when I gave away my SF novella ASUNDER that I’m doing it again.

Right now you can grab a free kindle copy of my short story MARKED MEN, my second pro sale to the DAW anthology ‘Slipstreams’… about cowboys & demons. Want to say thanks? Tell everyone you can! Click on the links below to share in social media.

CrowdFunding & Best-Selling!

Busy week here in the empire of Serving Worlds! I’ve been planning my IndieGoGo campaign to crowdfund ENEMY LINES in print & ebook for a while now. It launched this past week. I’m off to a good start, but I need your help! Please check out the campaign & contribute.

One of my plans to generate buzz for the campaign? A free kindle ebook. I waited the campaign on this, & I’m glad I did. Harlan’s Wake Hit #50 on the SF Best Sellers ‘Free 100’! That felt good…but I guarantee it won’t by my last time on the list!   Happy Holidays, all!

Don’t tell Amazon! …okay, go ahead, tell’em!

Today begins a marketing experiment with ebooks and Kindle. I’m testing the sensitivity of Amazon and hoping it’s high enough to catch me at my own game…and fall into my evil trap!
Translation: I’m giving away HARLAN’S WAKE for free on Smashwords or iBooks…not so much on Kindle.

See, Amazon doesn’t let folks give their books away. But if you give your books away elsewhere, and they catch you at it, they drop your book to $0 automatically. So, I’m hoping you’ll read the story of the Harlan clan and the alien Silvers. If you like it? Tell others, leave a review or pick up another story.

Of course, if you want it for free on Amazon, you can always narc on me on Amazon. Please. Go ahead. The link’s about halfway down the page, right above customer reviews.
