On A Cold Wind

The story of Caralynn (Carly) Adrasteia, an agent of EarthGov Security in the late twenty-second century. As an Enhanced Human, a group of humans engineered to have superior physical and mental abilities, she is subject to hatred and discrimination while continuing to work for the improvement of her people's situation. Along with her partner, Special Agent Murphy Greenfield, she is assigned to track down two escaped criminals who threaten a newly established colony. One of the criminals, Efhram Bartok, is also an Enhanced Human who wants to incite a revolution and lead the Enhanced Humans to freedom. There is a link between Carly and Bartok, one that only Carly's division director knows.

EarthGov Security Special Agent Kevin Martin and his partner, Probationary Agent Rachael (Rae) Mercer, thought they had been assigned an open-and-shut case. A murder had been committed on the colony of Haven and local law enforcement already had a suspect in custody, with enough evidence to ensure a conviction. Things begin to spin out of control when Rae is severely beaten and Kevin is accused of the attack. Who is trying to stop the murder investigation? What is connection between the suspect and the victim? How does the secret Rae is keeping tie into it?

Expanding Horizons

I've been doing research into marketing the books in an effort to try and increase sales. There are a lot of options out there, and a lot of them cost a fair bit of money.  Unfortunately, given my current lack of employment, I can't afford any of them. To that end, I've been looking into free options. That brought me to a few sites that let you advertise for free. I've also been posting the books on Facebook, Twitter and other sites.

It hasn't helped...yet.

While reading Crush It With Kindle by John Tighe (available on Amazon, of course), I came across something that's so obvious it made me wonder why I hadn't done it before. Up until now, the books have been available exclusively as ebooks. Why not make them available as Print on Demand as well? They're already formatted and ready to go, so why not take the steps necessary to expand the market some more?

I'm my own worst enemy, sometimes.

So using CreateSpace, I submitted With Eyes Open... I did change the cover a bit; it's still the same image but cropped differently. The image now fills most of the cover, with the title and by-line toward the lower right corner. The text is the same. I also had to change the price. The ebook is $2.99 but the POD edition is $5.38. According to Tighe, the difference in price will bring people to Kindle to buy the less expensive ebook.

In all honesty, I'm not concerned which one sells better. I just want the books to sell.

As soon as I get the addresses, I'll be sure to post them.

ETA: The print edition of With Eyes Open... is now available from CreateSpace. Find it here... https://www.createspace.com/5071005

Here's the new cover, by the way...

The Fault Lies Not...

In the late twenty-sixth century, a serial killer roams the city of Naufolk. There is little evidence left at the scenes of the murders, and no trace of the killer shows up on any of the city’s scanners. It's up to EarthGov Security Special Agent Lin Sillo and her partner, Special Agent Vincent DeBurg, to stop him. But is there something behind the murders, something that reaches far beyond the city?
