Impact Earth: Symbiosis is out now

After 3 1/2 years IMPACT EARTH: SYMBIOSIS is finally available. During the first week of release it is only $2.99 for kindle. It’s also in the kindle unlimited library so you can read it as part of your subscription. The paperback will be ready in a few weeks.

Here’s the synopsis:

“It was a quiet Seattle morning until the skies filled with fire: without warning, a catastrophic meteor shower caused buildings to crumble and the lights to go out. Out of the rubble, five ordinary people arose to find themselves manifesting undreamed-of abilities.

Will they be enough to do what the military cannot — stop a massive alien invasion before the entire West Coast is destroyed?”

I started working on this book in mid 2013. I was attending Texas Frightmare (best horror con in the world) with some other Permuted Press authors. Peter Cline’s Ex-Heroes books were taking off big time. I remember chatting with Peter and saying something along the lines of “There are a ton of zombie books. I think you’re really paving the way with superhero books. It’s going to be a huge book genre.” A few days later I had an idea for Impact Earth and started writing it. Continue reading…

IMPACT EARTH prologue

Howdy friends. With any luck IMPACT EARTH: SYMBIOSIS will be available by the end of the week. In the meantime, here’s the prologue to whet your appetite. The book will be released for $2.99 for the first few days. After that it will go up by one dollar to $3.99. The book runs about 350 pages and is my longest novel in 3 years. I hope you enjoy this little sample.

International Space Station
10:47 Zulu time

Yuri Novitskiy awoke to pounding.

He tried to roll over, but then he remembered he was stuck in a cocoon that was Velcroed to a wall. Or, as Sheppard liked to call it, being mummified for eight hours. One of the hardest parts about living in zero-g was that it didn’t matter which direction you faced. There was no gravity to tell you which way was up and which way was down.

The familiar machine shop smell of the space station came back to him: a combination of oil, recycled air, and ionization particles. Then there were the constant noises of moving air and machinery humming away as the space station kept its occupants alive. Continue reading…

IMPACT EARTH: SYMBIOSIS coming next month

Greetings all. Now that THE FRONT: SCREAMING EAGLES is out in the wild it’s time to deliver a book I’ve been working on for over 3 years. The first in a series IMPACT EARTH: SYMBIOSIS tells the story of five everyday average people who are suddenly granted extraordinary powers in the midst of an apocalyptic alien invasion. The book takes place in Seattle and once again I’m thrilled to virtually destroy parts of the city I’m from.

Eloise J. Knapp has created an amazing cover for the book and I’m happy to post it. So watch for the first book in the series in February 2016. Z-RISEN 5: BARRIERS will follow around April or May of this year. Thank you all for reading!
