What if you had a secret crush on a co-worker and then realized she was probably trying to kill you?
My Loyal Blog Readers may be interested to know that I’m running a 99-cent special on my e-book Oxygen on Amazon, B&N, Apple, and Smashwords. Here’s a blurb:
Halfway to Mars, an explosion leaves their crew of four with only enough oxygen for one of them to make it the Red Planet alive.
The pilot is left in a coma.
The mission commander is coming unglued.
Valkerie is the prime suspect.
Bob has to make sense of it all, but his head and his heart are in violent disagreement. And somebody has to figure out who gets to live and who has to die in order to save the mission.
If you’ve ever dreamed about having a geeky romance on a sabotaged mission to Mars (admit it, you’ve dreamed about this millions of times), then Oxygen is for you.
My co-author and I had hoped to work in some cool controversy on science, faith, the meaning of life, the existence of God, and possibly even the Coke versus Pepsi debate. But we forgot, dang it.
Oxygen is 99 cents until midnight on Tuesday, August 27, 2013. (Please note that Amazon adds a hefty surcharge in some countries outside the US. This is way above my pay grade. Also, the Apple store may not charge the exact price-equivalent of 99 cents outside the US, but it should be close. Smashwords seems to offer just about the same price all around the planet, and they have it in numerous formats, including Kindle, ePub, and PDF.)
Where To Buy Oxygen
Start your journey to Mars at Amazon.
Ride a rocket to glory on Barnes & Noble.
Take a deep breath of Oxygen on Smashwords.
Or search for “oxygen ingermanson” on the Apple iTunes Bookstore.
A personal note to my Loyal Blog Readers: Some of you know that this has been a difficult month for me. My dad has been suffering with emphysema for more than a decade. This summer, he began to decline rapidly, and he died on August 11. It seems horribly ironic to me now, but Oxygen was one of his favorite books.
Many people have asked how I’m doing. The answer is “better than I had expected.”
I hope to resume normal blogging soon. I’m blogging today mainly because this 99-cent special was scheduled a long time ago, as part of an ad campaign on BookBub.
