The zero dollar experiment

In the interest of diversifying my writer portfolio, I have chosen to hop aboard the epublishing bandwagon. And what better project to use as a springboard than my 2010 On the Far Side Contest first place futuristic story, Stellar Timing.

Let's see how much money really matters with ebooks. I haven't put a cent into this story. Literally, after winning the contest the FF&P chapter reimbursed my entry fee. The cover is my own design, and I uploaded the story to both Nook and Kindle all by my lonesome. Major credit goes to my critique partner, Saranna DeWylde, who invested quite a bit of time helping me spiff this baby up.

So because I don't charge by the hour (anymore ;-) it's being listed at $ 2.99 For a 94 thousand word ebook, I doubt you will find a better value. From me the writer to you the consumer, ENJOY!

On Sale now for Amazon Kindle and Coming Soon from Nook!

When a man wearing blood-soaked armor begs her for sanctuary, Ellie McIntyre is sure her mind has snapped like a dry twig. In the year 2059, poverty and stress have done much worse. What else could explain her ability to hear animals talk and the knack for communing with the wounded warrior inside her head? One thing’s for sure, she needs to eject this sexy figment from her life, stat.

Betrayed by those closest to him, Prince Brennigan was banished to the universal Hotel California, the penal colony called Earth. The only way to escape this fate worse than death is to befriend a portal-maker, a sorci who can open a gateway through time and space and return him to his home planet. Getting along with the magically inclined is not his forte—magic is the prevalent fungus at the root of his problems.

Now the hope for his people, and his heart, lies with Ellie. Can an ignorant witch best an evil sorceress before this medieval times space opera’s final curtain?
