Re: Shameless Self Promotion Board

Hello! The trade paperback edition of my first novel, Through Struggle, the Stars, has just gone live.

 

Here's the blurb:

 

In 2139, a network of artificial wormholes has allowed humanity to reach nearby stars, where nations fiercely compete to settle new colony worlds. War is imminent between Earth's top powers, China and Japan, for reasons that no one fully understands.

 

Neil Mercer, a freshly commissioned officer in the United States Space Force, is assigned to shepherd a senior spy on a covert mission that risks drawing America into the conflict. In a story featuring high adventure, interstellar intrigue and some of the most scientifically realistic space warfare depicted in fiction, Neil and his comrades must face difficult questions about duty, citizenship and national interest as they struggle to discover why the war threatens to engulf every nation on Earth.

 

A hard science fiction novel by a former Pentagon and CIA reporter for the Associated Press, Through Struggle, the Stars, is recommended for fans of Tom Clancy, Patrick O'Brian, and Robert Heinlein. The e-book is available for $2.99, and an 8" x 5.25" trade paperback with full color front and back cover art by science fiction illustrator Winchell Chung is available for $15.95.

Re: Shameless Self Promotion Board

My first book is available: Life Descending. It is part one is The Cry of Havoc series. You can find it at my web: http://www.johnhennessy.net

It is a epic fantasy novel that has taken all of my adult life, and then some, to accomplish (the last six years). I'm twenty-two and just recently graduated from Western Washington with a degree focused on different cultures and religions. This book is for anyone who is looking for some deviance from the standard fantasy, with fast moving plot, and some sad, despondent characters. It is not the happiest of tales. I hope those who pick it up enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed putting it together.

Re: Shameless Self Promotion Board

Tunnel Club by Rich Stowell

 

In 1990, four boys entered high school just as countless kids before them. But this was no ordinary high school, and these were no ordinary students. The Salt Lake High School East was in transition, some would say in decline. From all walks of life they came together in the quest of a legend: a secret, underground swimming pool. Daryl, Hiram, Earl, and Allen were the founding members of the Tunnel Club, dedicated to finding the lost pool. Early in the school year, they heard the rumors of a subterranean pool, long ago sealed up and nearly forgotten. Their search leads them into discovering all sorts of things about their school?its history, people, and their place in the community. Determined to find out more, they uncover secrets, like burnt-out stairwells that lead to catacombs and other strange features of the ancient edifice. They also learn about the people behind the building, and the demographic and political forces behind its changes. While sneaking around the tunnels of the old East High, however, they discover more important things: friendship, loyalty, and trust.

 

Tunnel Club is the story of growing up in a very unique community and attending a school with a remarkable past. In many ways East High School represents the Salt Lake community from its early provincialism to its growth into a distinct American metropolis. The four protagonists represent what many boys experienced while growing up in such a peculiar time and place. Their curiosity and adventurism put them in a path where they meet the city?s history head on, and realize truths about life in Utah that most teenagers never consider. Any graduate of East High School (96 classes since its opening) will love reading about its untold history, as will friends of family of the East bench community. The story has wider appeal, too?Salt Lakers, Utahns, and Latter-day Saints will all recognize themes that will interest, entertain, and uplift. Finally, Tunnel Club is a teenage adventure that adults and adolescents alike will love.

Re: Shameless Self Promotion Board

I  recently  started writing again with an updated version of my 1st fiction novel: The Nuclear Catastrophe (a fiction novel of suspense). That book was published in 1977 before 3 mile Island and Chernobyl. It sold well to libraries at the time and is still available across the United States in libraries but I had to get a real job so as not to starve. When Fukushima happened, out of curiosity I googled the name of my book. It showed that it was being sold as a used book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. So I decided to bring it out again as an EBook and a paperback. It's been a very fun project. The newest edition carries the title : THE DISQUIET SURVIVORS of The Nuclear Catastrophe to make it more apparent that it is a fictional story. To reach a larger audience I priced the EBook at 99 cents. Here's a link to one of the sale sites: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004WDRWXY
