Congratulations to Laurie! I’ll be getting her copy of Draykon to here ASAP.
This week we have a science fiction piece for you guys by Paul Tietjens.
Getting To Bliss is a coming of age story set in a science-fiction future full of rockets, robots and genetically engineered marvels used to recycle waste.
On Mars, humanity has founded a galactic empire. On Terra, people spend their long lives immersed in the virtual reality of the time-dilated Interface. The Marterrian Frontier is a utopian future rejected by many of its inhabitants peppered by artificial intelligence, space travel, genetic engineering and robot avatars.
Theodore Clay Oneir was born with a defect – he cannot participate in the dreamworld of Interface. In a desperate attempt to escape his disability and his condescending society, Ted stows away aboard the Martian salvage starship, the Dame Brisen.
Aboard the Brisen, Theodore must face uncomfortable truths about life and his own origins. He finds that escape from Earth doesn’t mean he’s treated like less of a child, and that freedom comes in more than one flavor.
To enter to win this week’s book, leave me a comment on this post and let me know what the last science fiction movie you watched was. Or you can purchase it here.
I plan on giving away a book a week this year, but none of them will be my own. Why? Well, I believe in helping introduce people to new authors and nothing does that like FREE! The contests will be as simple as leaving a comment on the blog, or showing me that you’ve left a review on Amazon or Smashwords of books you’ve picked up in the past. I’ll try and change things up to keep them interesting, but by and large you won’t have to work hard.
If you’re an author and you’d like to pitch your hat into the ring, let me know. I’m not asking you to give me anything for free. I plan on buying your e-book from Amazon/Smashwords as a gift for the winner. So in addition to you getting your name out there, you’ll also get a sale for the contest. The most I can budget per week is $2.99, so if you have a book in the $.99-$2.99 price range let me know. I reserve the right to turn you down, but I will try and do so gently. I’d like to have a variety of genres represented.
If you have a free book and would like me to just get the word out I can do that, but you won’t be part of my contest. If your book is more expensive and you would like to donate a copy, that works too.
Shoot me an e-mail, a DM, or leave me a comment to enter your book.
