You might have heard by now that the first edition of the science fiction and fantasy box set Dark Humanity (which contained The Jacq of Spades) hit both the USA Today and NY Times best seller lists!
So what does that mean? It means that I can say I’m a NYT and USAT best selling author! Woo hoo! If that helps someone be more likely to buy my books, it’s been well worth it.
In practical terms, it means that myself and the 21 other authors in the box set have spent a boatload of money on advertising, which we won’t see a dime from until probably April. And is being split 22 ways.
So not instant millionaire status, but good! I’ll keep you updated on what else happens. :)
The second edition of Dark Humanity is on Kindle Unlimited, and contains the debut of my military SF prequel to The Jacq of Spades, called The Alcatraz Coup.
Here’s a blurb:
How far would you go to save your city from a madman?
Fifteen hundred years after the Catastrophe, Inventor Benjamin Kerr built the domed neo-Edwardian city-state of Bridges in the center of the former U.S. Three hundred years later, Bridges is in trouble. King Taylor Kerr is elderly, the economy is struggling, and corruption is rampant.
Forty years ago, a fence was built outside of the “Pot of Gold” — the city proper — to keep out the growing numbers of homeless. This number has increased to over a hundred thousand, whole generations knowing nothing else but life in the tent camps.
Acevedo Spadros is a high school Bridges history teacher. His former student Xavier Alcatraz is head of the Guard. When King Taylor is assassinated by his son Polansky Kerr, who then plans to slaughter everyone outside the fence, Acevedo and Xavier plan the unthinkable: to bring down the Mad King.
I hope you’ll go over to Amazon and pick up a copy of The Alcatraz Coup as part of the Dark Humanity box set. Who knows? Maybe it’ll become a NY Times best seller, too!
