I’ve just started the process of uploading the Strain books to Amazon to relaunch that series as the first part of re-launching all my titles that were published elsewhere.
YAY! I’m so excited!
For now, I’ve decided to only release the books with Amazon.
The good news for those of you with Kindle Unlimited is that you will have access to the books that way rather than having to purchase them, so if that has been an obstacle in the past, hopefully it won’t be anymore.
For the few of you who do buy through other retailers, I understand this may be somewhat distressing. And I’ll be honest, I’ve been really reluctant about participating in KDP-Select and Kindle Unlimited because I believe that Amazon’s model is extremely destructive for self-publishers and small presses and I object on principle to giving a single retailer exclusive rights to distribute my book.
However, it turns out, inhabiting the moral high ground doesn’t actually pay very well.
So, I’m going to try to split the difference. If you wish to read the book in epub or pdf format, buy it on Amazon, screencap your receipt or purchase confirmation, then contact me with a link to that screencap image using the contact form on my About page, here:
You can also use any of my social media accounts.
Once you’ve done that, I will contact you with a link to download a copy of the ebook in the format of your choice.
I will update any purchase links as soon as I have them, right now I’m just waiting for the books to process!
I got off track posting snippets and excerpts for a few weeks, but now I’m back! I bring you part of a scene from Juggernaut today!
They helped destroy the world. Now they have to survive the new one.
For rentboy Nico Fernández, it’s a simple job: seduce a presidential advisor to help cement approval to launch Project Juggernaut. He’s done similar work for General Logan McClosky before, and manipulating people for his favorite client beats the hell out of being trafficked for slave wages in some corporate brothel.
Zach Houtman feels called to work with the most vulnerable outcasts of society. But his father, the Reverend Maurice Houtman, insists that Zach work for him instead as he runs for Senate. Zach reluctantly agrees, but is horrified to see his father leave behind Christ’s mandate of love and mercy to preach malicious zealotry and violence instead. Zach even starts to suspect his father is working with fundamentalist terrorists.
When Project Juggernaut accidentally unleashes a deadly plague that claims billions of lives, Nico and Zach are thrown together, each bearing a burden of guilt. With only each other for safety and solace, they must make their way through a new world, one where the handful of people left alive are willing to do anything—and kill anyone—to survive.
I’m going to put it behind a cut for spoilers.
