Shameless Promote Your Book Thread
Hi all! I know the iPad is just barely out the door, but before all us authors start cluttering your forum with our endless plugs to promote our books, I figured I would start one thread for such purposes. That way authors can throw it all in here and keep your forum free from clutter <cough> spam <cough>. http://www.ipadforums.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif And if you want to see what we're plugging, then just drop in here.
Paintings on The Father Wall
In the iBookstore now!
A collection of 3 unique short stories addressing the complex relationships between sons and neglectful fathers. The stories deal with intricate issues such as perception, anger, development, sanity and more.
The stories are:
'A Conflict of Necessity'
A father and son battle it out in a final showdown. The story is portrayed in a special style, depicting it as an intense movie scene.
'Benny and Jiggles'
“Bennie was 8. He was 8 and he already had ancient memories.”
A surreal story with a twist. A second twist is that the story is prominently based on the author's personal life.
International Kittens of Mystery
Book View Café releases International Kittens of Mystery, by Chris Dolley
In an uncertain world there is one organisation that stands head and small furry shoulders above the rest. Whenever the planet is in danger - be it from giant balls of wool or bands of renegade squirrels - only one group is guaranteed to answer the call. The International Kittens of Mystery!
This is a journal of their stories. For the first time, cameras have been allowed into one of their top secret training camps - Training Camp Alpha. A camp where, under the supervision of pet humans, recruits are shown not only how to save the world but also how to manage their secret identities - how to blend in and infiltrate the human society that they alone can protect.
If you like a laugh and looking at large colour pictures of cute kittens saving the planet, this is the book for you. It's the book the iPad was designed for - ask Steve Jobs' cat.
The book costs $2.99 and can be downloaded from here:
All proceeds from the book go towards the upkeep of the International Kittens of Mystery orbiting space platform. After all, if an asteroid-sized ball of wool really did threaten the Earth, who're you gonna call? Bruce Willis and his team of miners or the real experts in unravelling balls of wool?
“Suspense! Intrigue! Silly jokes!! And cute kittens. INTERNATIONAL KITTENS OF MYSTERY has it all. The secrets of training kittens to become international superspies. The gadgetry, the secret knowledge (the power of cute) the combat practice, the mice.
“If you don't like cuteoverload.com or I can has Cheezburger/lolcats, this is not for you. If you know what those are I'm guessing you're ready for the INTERNATIONAL KITTENS OF MYSTERY.
“It's definitely one of the best thrillers of the year. It's unputdownable ... a brilliant peek into those secret places where they plot to save the world (from alien sheep?) (well, yeah,)” – Andi Schechter.
Right Ascension and Declination, sci-fi that will make you think for 99 cents
Right Ascension and its sequel, Declination, are science fiction novels that blend action and adventure with philosophical and moral undertones. They invite readers to ponder interesting ethical dilemmas and question their own notions of fairness, honor, and the nature of justice.
Right Ascension iBook Store link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/isbn9781452302836
Declination iBook Store link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/book/isbn9781452302829
Set in the year 3040, Right Ascension examines mankind’s place in the Universe, how we ascended to that lofty position, and the horrifying price of that ascension.
Humanity’s position of political and technological dominance within the galaxy is suddenly shattered when a sleek alien vessel arrives unexpectedly at Earth. Admiral Daniel Atgard and the crew of the Apocalypse embark on a mission to find these enigmatic aliens, but the focus of the mission quickly turns from finding answers to exacting revenge. Meanwhile, a belligerent species of reptilian warriors, seeking to avenge a previous defeat at the hands of the human-controlled United Confederation of Planets, takes this opportunity to plan an all-out assault on Earth. Faced with overwhelming odds and the terrible knowledge of mankind’s most horrifying secret, Daniel must choose between honor ... and humanity’s very survival.
"A morality play transformed into high adventure and that's a working definition of science fiction at its best."
I am thrilled to say that Right Ascension climbed into the Top 500 overall in the Kindle store, Top 15 on the Science Fiction bestseller list, and #1 in "Technothrillers." Please consider giving them a look -- they're now only 99 cents each. Thanks!
