Apologies, I know you’re all celebrating Easter however you can – waves- but I could really use your help. I’ve always found blurbs hard to write, but coming up with one blurb for three books is driving me insane. If you’ve got a sec could you tell me what you think of this?
Innerscape Omnibus blurb 1
‘Innerscape is marketed as a digital paradise where the terminally ill live out their lives in young, pain free bodies indistinguishable from the real thing. But Miira Tahn, last Lady of Dhurai, soon discovers that all is not well in paradise; an assassin is stalking the Burning Man, and nothing is what it seems. Together with friends, Kenneth Wu and Jaimie Watson, Miira becomes embroiled in a deadly game of cat and mouse where losing means death. Only by fighting back can she save herself, and those she loves.’
Is it too cheesy? Does it give too much away? Is there enough to interest a reader? Is it ‘sci-fi’ enough? -cringe- Is it just too boring?
Thank you, thank you!
During this Covid-19 crisis I want to help in any way I can, so I’ve turned my sci-fi trilogy, Innerscape, into an omnibus edition. In the coming weeks, I’ll be offering the omnibus edition up for free in as many formats as I can manage.
The Innerscape Omnibus includes:
- Book 1, Miira
- Book 2, The Godsend
- Book 3, Nabatea
Just a whisker under 1000 pages so it should keep people going for a while. 😀
For those without dedicated reading devices, I’ve started with the PDF format because all you will need is a free copy of Acrobat Reader and a computer of some sort.
Click the image below, or the sync.com link. to download the PDF version of the omnibus:
Alternately, click ‘as PDF’ in the sidebar to the right to be taken to the same link.
You will not need to sign up or do anything at all to download the omnibus. Just click the link and then follow the on-screen instructions. Feel free to share the omnibus with family and friends. All I ask is that you don’t try to sell it or use it in any commercial way.
I’ll be working to get the next version up and tested asap. Until then, stay well and #StayHome
At some point during the weekend, I suddenly realised that if I published the Innerscape Omnibus to Amazon first, people without Kindles wouldn’t be able to download it at all, for three months. -sigh- I know, I’m fast like that. So this is the revised plan:
- I publish the Omnibus as a free PDF first,
- Then I publish the epub for free with non Amazon distributors, for 2 weeks?
- Then I unpublish both the PDF and the epub so I can offer the Omnibus on Amazon for free.
So here’s where I need some help. I’ve created the PDF, I’ve uploaded it to sync.com, and I have a link for downloading it from sync.com, but I’d kill for some volunteers to test the process. According to sync.com, you don’t need to register or do anything except click on the link and then ‘download’, but the file is over 4 MG, and I’ve grown distrustful in my old age.
So, how about it? Pretty please with sprinkles? 🙂
If you would like to test the process out for me, click the following link and …follow instructions!
And please let me know if I need to do anything to make the process easier. Oh! And remember, you’ll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to actually read the PDF version of the books.
Thank you in advance!
