Hello fellow writers and readers! I come to you today with both a request and an offer. I’m looking for people who would be interested in receiving Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) of my two (soon to be three) novels. They are part of a hard science fiction series set in the not-too-distant future that incorporates elements of conspiracy, intrigue, criminal investigations, colonization and terraforming.
As part of the deal, you’d get free electronic copies of each novel, and all that is asked in return is that you give an honest review on Amazon and Goodreads. They are published by Castrum Press and have received some rave reviews from readers. Here is what some people had to say (I used their initials to protect their anonymity):
“Compelling read in an immersive world!”- RU
“.. an exciting tale in this story. It was a very enjoyable read and I’m looking forward to seeing more..” – JJC
“A phenomenal debut novel. I really enjoyed reading this book.“- BTK
“It’s good sci-fi, and left me itching to read the third book in the series, after I read the second, of course.” – CW
“..one of the best science fiction novels I’ve read in some time.”- CWG
“I didn’t realize how deeply I was drawn into this book until I was about halfway through it!” – mzbeastle
“This has been one of the most well put together books I have read this past year.” – TV
These reviews, however, are ones I am happy to attribute. The first is from Heather Archuletta, a writer, science advocate and self-described “pillownaut” who worked for the NASA Johnson Space Center and took part in their Lunar and Mars research programs. Here’s what she said:
“The Cronian Incident, which I recommended to my audience as my top Sci-Fi read of the year, is a treasure of planetary science.“
And then there’s these two that come courtesy of Professor Abraham Loeb, the Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of Science and the Chair of the Astronomy Department at Harvard University. He’s also the founder of the Institute for Theoretical Computation and the Chairman of Breakthrough Starshot‘s advisory committee – an initiative to build an interstellar spacecraft that could make it to Alpha Centauri in just 20 years.
Here’s what he had to say about my first two books, respectively:
“An exciting science fiction adventure into the technological future. An exhilarating read for scientists and fiction lovers alike.”
“Exciting plot with a good foundation in science. This is not surprising given the author’s expertise as an excellent science writer for Universe Today. Inspiring ending. Highly recommended!”
Here are the links to the first two books if anyone’s interested in learning more about them:
