I'm happy to report that Beyond Cloud Nine advanced to the Second Round of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest. The General Fiction category of the contest began with 5,000 entries and has now been whittled down to 1,000 based on pitches. On March 20, the field will narrow to 250 quarter finalists based on the first 5,000 words of the novel (for BC9 that's the prologue and chapter 1). I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Here's a link to the 1,000 Advancing General Fiction Entries. My name and novel appear on page 7.
to the author's mailing list to read the first three books of the Beyond Saga for FREE.
Beyond Cloud Nine
Beyond the Horizon
With the Earth conquered, Admiral Maya Davis must travel through space, time, and alternate universes to prevent mankind from being wiped out of existence.
Lyana, an orphaned martial artist with bio-augmented abilities,
embarks on a quest to liberate her home world and prevent the fabric of the universe from unraveling.
Bears in Space
Roz and his goofball crew must save the galaxy from cliche alien invasions, trite zombie apocalypses, and bad rom-coms.
Ryssa Nilsson must avoid the deadly stings of heat-loving bugs known as
thermophiles and escape Mars before the Sun's expansion
sterilizes the planet.
