Long Fall, Free to Download

Four years have passed since mankind fell, and the Earth has evolved. Powered by living technology, human and Oikeyan nations now war for control on the surface, while the ancient starship Legacy and her human commander, Marcus Donovan, wait in orbit for a chance to create a more lasting peace.

But all of that changes when search & rescue specialist Jack Hernandez uncovers something dangerous hidden in the jungles of Mexico.

Now the race is on to control the artifact. Driven by fanatical ideologies and an insatiable hunger for victory, each side will unleash soldiers with power beyond reason in their bid to control the Earth.

But is any creature incorruptible enough to wield the power of a god?

Grab a copy. Tell a friend. Further my wicked plan for world domination!

Stars Rain Down, Free Promotion Update!

With 13.5 hours left in the promotion, Stars Rain Down has been downloaded just over 1400 times! The book is currently #2 in free Space Opera, Space Exploration, and Alien Invasion, and #10 in free Science-Fiction!

Color me jazzed! By my best estimates, we should close out with somewhere around 2,500 copies total, which is simply tremendous for a book that’s sold less than 10 copies in the past year.

There’s still time to grab yours, of course! In fact, there are exactly 13 hours and 24 minutes, so head on over to Amazon and get clicking!

Biotech Legacy: Stars Rain Down is FREE Today and Tomorrow!

 

Biotech Legacy: Stars Rain Down coverThe sale is live! Biotech Legacy: Stars Rain Down is currently free in the Amazon Kindle Store, so boogie on down and grab a copy! Every download helps feed starving children in Africa! Wait! That’s not true! But every download actually does help me climb higher in the ratings, making sure an even bigger audience gets a chance to find and read this excellent book!

That’s a lot of exclamation points. I’m kind of out of breath here… huff, puff, gasp

So, what’s it all about then?

When the stars rain down from the sky, who will rise up to meet them?

Marcus Donovan is an astronomer, daydreamer, and smart ass. He used to be just another researcher in a jumpsuit until he saw something that didn’t fit, an asteroid in our solar system that wasn’t an asteroid, and now he’s off on a mission to investigate in person.

Meanwhile, seven massive discs appear in orbit around the Earth and rain fire from the heavens. The world is broken and conquered before anyone even realizes it’s an attack.

On the ground is Jack Hernandez, a rescue specialist and everyday hero with a knack for getting in trouble. After crashing in the wasted ruins of China, he links up with the scattered resistance and begins to fight back, driven to do whatever it takes to protect human lives.

Neither Jack nor Marcus ever could have predicted it, but mankind’s future now depends on them both, and they’ll each face challenges beyond imagination in a war older than time.

Sounds awesome, right?

Heads-up: Change in Ebook Availability

Just wanted to let everyone know that I’m returning to Kindle Select, so in the next few days, both Biotech Legacy books will only be available through Amazon. I really dislike exclusivity, but my royalties are currently hovering around $3 for the month and something has to change. The upside is that I’ll be able to run free promotions through Amazon again, starting with a 2-day sale this Thursday and Friday! If you can help me boost at all, I’d appreciate it mucho!

Oktopod on Google+

As mentioned in the previous world-domination post, I’m starting to share my plans for a new self-publishing platform, and I want you to join in the discussion! I’ve set up a community on Google+ expressly for the purpose, so you should come on down, scope out my mad schemes, and let me know what you think.

First Sale of the Year!

After a bit of oddness and waiting with Amazon, I’m happy to announce that we’re (read: I’m) having our first sale of the year. What exactly is available? Absolutely stonking everything, thanks for asking.

Head on over to my author page at Amazon, and you should find five titles all free for the taking. If you don’t find that, either I’ve broken the hyperlink or Amazon is having some kind of problem. Both have been known to happen.

Be sure to tell your sister, tell your friends, and tell that weird guy at the gas station who always stares at your kneecaps with lusty eyes. Of course, this sale can’t come at a better time, as my sales have been slowly circling the toilet since the start of the year. With a little luck, this will make me a little more visible again.

Stars Rain Down will also be dropping back down to it’s earlier, more sane price once the sale is over. While I’ve got you here, I’d like to take a moment to thank the kind soul who bought a copy for 10 bones. Thank you! If I ever run into you on the street, I’ll buy you a beer. One that’s worth less than $7 (my inner businessman informs me), but a beer nonetheless.

Also, I’ll be launching a new running column called Odds Without Ends right here at the Oktopod Blog. That should be starting around Wednesday of next week, so stay tuned!

Cheers, and have a great weekend!
~Chris

Free Promotion — Stars Rain Down

That’s right! Stars Rain Down is once again free through the Amazon Kindle store! You have until 11:59PM PDT tonight, Tuesday the 24th to grab a copy. When will it come up for sale again? I’m aiming to be a bit more cunning with these promotions, and will be hosting a free day every three weeks, so if you miss this one, you only have to wait until half-way through May. If you miss that one, you could always pester someone who already has a copy. 🙂

Download a copy! Tell a friend! Eat something delicious and take a nap!
