For this month only, the ebook of my debut novel TERMINAL MIND is available for only 99 cents. Terminal Mind won the Philip K. Dick Award in 2009 for the best paperback science fiction novel of the year. It usually sells for $4.99, so if you haven’t read it yet, this is a rare opportunity to get it for a song.
Why do this? Aren’t I losing money? The reason for this unprecedented sale is. of course, to spread the word about my newest book, QUINTESSENCE. The biggest reason for a reader to buy a new book is because they liked the author’s last one. This sale is an inexpensive way for someone to take a risk on a new author and decide they like what I write. So, if you’ve already read Terminal Mind, please let others know about this deal! Particularly those who might enjoy my work, but may have never heard of me.
TERMINAL MIND takes place in a world of technological miracles: buildings can be grown in hours, communication flashes through light beams, and flesh can be molded to any whim. The story is about a boy whose mind has been sliced into the worldwide computer network–an organic network integrated into people’s very brains. Aware of nothing outside of his virtual existence, he’s a slave to a man who wields tremendous power through him, able to see through the eyes of almost anyone he chooses and steal their secrets. The result is a race between those who would use the child to dominate, and those who would see him destroyed… and the child’s mother, racing to find him, for whom both options are unthinkable.
Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show magazine called it “high-intensity human drama set in a thoroughly imagined and highly plausible future.” I hope you’ll check it out!
