Half Price Christmas Offer on “Deadline”

Astronomicon Deadline Christmas offerI didn’t do a big launch of the latest Astronomicon science fiction novel when it was published two months ago so, rather than just let it go unnoticed on Amazon, I’ve decided to do a Christmas promotional offer.

From today until Boxing Day you can get the e-book version of Astronomicon: Deadline for half price from your local Amazon website, that’s just £1.99 for the entire 216-page humorous sci-fi novel. 

I don’t often do promotional offers, so don’t miss out on this one.

At last! #scifi #novel

Cover of Astronomicon: DeadlineSorry it’s taken over three years for my latest novel “Deadline” to see the light of day. As of today, it is available all over the world to download from Amazon (or at least all the places where Amazon is available).

It is a standalone novel, set firmly within the Astronomicon universe, but is probably my biggest departure in style so far. Most of my works to date have contained elements of humour, mostly within dialogue, but Deadline is different as the whole novel is written as a humorous, action adventure of a more farcical nature.

It follows two main characters who, for differing reasons, need to get back to Earth from Jupiter before a deadline. The problem is everything around them gets in the way. They never expected to face aliens, space pirates,  agents from a shadowy government organisation and a mystery intruder.

Unmissable Low Price for 390 Pages of Quality Science Fiction

Astronomicon: The Beginning - Front Cover

After having had over two dozen people request this (some more than once!), I’ve given in and repriced Astronomicon: The Beginning (First book in the epic Astronomicon series) down to just 99c (that’s just 79p in the UK). That low price makes a fantastic  bargain for 390 pages of highly rated, quality science fiction. That’s over 120,000 words.

With only 5 star reviews on GoodReads.com and a 4 star review on Amazon, it has been very well received by readers. Of course I would love to get more reviews, preferably good ones!

I’m not sure yet on how long this offer will run, but I expect to return it to the normal, full price of $3.99 (£2.59 in the UK) at the start of June. I will post more information when I have decided.

Don’t miss out: Download it from Amazon right away.

Good reviews are hard to get

Astronomicon: Icarus front cover imageSince I published the first Astronomicon novel about three years ago, I’ve consistently found it difficult to get any genuine readers to leave reviews on sites like Amazon and GoodReads.com. Admittedly it’s a mixed blessing as, while no reviews means no good reviews,  it means no bad reviews either.

 

Icarus has had a variety of reviews, so far all very positive:

 

I enjoyed it and easily recommend it to anyone who enjoys SF.”
4/5 stars by Marva on GoodReads.com. (Read full review)

 

 

Overall I enjoyed this book. I recommend it to readers seeking a layered thriller or realistic science-fiction.

The last half of the book I read in one sitting as I couldn’t wait to find out how it ended.
5/5 stars by Avid Reader on Amazon.com. (Read full review)

 

 

Obviously I’m still looking to get more reviews, as many as possible in fact, so if you’re interested in reading it and publishing a review, please let me know.
