Hello from Skid
In my last update I spoke about my identity crisis and the inner turmoil caused by my confusion about the genre I am writing in. More than one person has since reached out and described my writing as Barry Crump (a trail blazing New Zealand writer who gave a voice to our own stories) or Crocodile Dundee meets Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. I think this is an apt description of my style.
Christmas offers the opportunity to chillout and relax after a tough year with a good book or two, especially in this part of the world many where many of us have an extended break at this time of year. With this in mind I want to do my bit and offer you a decent read and some light relief at a cost which won’t break the bank.
To that end the third book in the Skidian Chronicles series – the Lifeboat is available on Amazon for US$0.99 for the next week.. It can be download here. The Lifeboat.
For those of you who like the feel of paper I have also dropped the price for the hardcopy books to NZ$12 plus freight. I’ll also do a buy three get one free deal until Christmas. For potential buyers in NZ there is still time to buy a few books and get them before the big guy comes down the chimney. The books can be ordered here.
Blurb for The Lifeboat
In The Lifeboat a huge killer asteroid appears to be on a collision course with earth. However, it soon transpires the asteroid has been sent on its way by the Skidian first people who have uploaded themselves to a celestial version of the cloud and now define themselves as Transcendents.
The Transcendents have a plan for humanity which doesn’t include an asteroid strike killing us all off.
An excerpt from my favourite review.
“The plot is rich and interesting with plenty of chuckles given the parallels with current world politics and indeed, parallels to politicians from all facets of life.Introducing the ultimate puppet masters, the Transcendants, the Lifeboat goes further to explaining our world history and our parallel off-world history. If you’ve ever worked in large organisations, or with systems and processes, you will enjoy the pragmatism and insights of our anti-hero Bruce.”
