A quick note to say that I’m currently running a giveaway on Goodreads for several signed copies of the paper edition of my award-winning novel OXYGEN, which I coauthored with John Olson.
The premise: An explosion on the first manned mission to Mars leaves four astronauts with only enough oxygen for one to make it to the Red Planet alive. Two of them are too proud to admit it, but they’re in love with each other. And all the evidence indicates that one of the four planted the bomb.
This is the second edition of OXYGEN (the “Writer’s Journey Edition”) with four bonus appendices, (about 21,000 words) on fiction writing.
One of the appendices tells the story of how John and I sold this novel to a publisher in less than 7 weeks without an agent.
Another appendix reveals my #1 secret for writing fiction, along with a line-by-line analysis of the entire first scene of the novel.
