Enter to win

If you aren’t one of the five winners, you’re still in luck. The book happens to be on sale right now at Click here for the direct link, and if you happen to pick one up, please add a review when you’re finished.

Here’s what the reviews are looking like so far:

“A remarkably descriptive dystopian Sci-Fi adventure.”

“A backdrop of psychic/machine-world-melded/phantasmagoria impels the coolest of stories with ease.”

“Pike shows an ability to blend good solid science fiction with today’s RPG craze.

“A rollercoaster ride, filled with hard turns and twists, unpredictable and thrilling.”

“Wonderful and terrifying.”

“Pike engages the reader from the beginning and doesn’t release them until the final page – which only leaves them wanting more.”

“It wasn’t what I expected and I found it uniquely interesting.”

“The pace is moderate with good grounding and the world building is amazing.”

“I was enthralled from the very first page and I was never disappointed.”

“Each chapter, like a game level, reveals surprising new information about the world and character abilities, creating greater engagement for the reader.”

“The Wolf of Descarta is great Sci-Fi, and that’s not even my genre of choice. The characters are intriguing, complex, and flawed.”

“Once I started this book, I was up all night just so I could finish it.”

“So if you are a Sci-Fi aficionado, and love original concepts mixed with ax-wielding badassery and sexy vixens, this book is for you!”

The second book in the Dream Box series, Betrayal at Phobos, is scheduled for release in early November. I’ll have more details closer to the publication date.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support, and good luck winning free books.

Free Kindle While You Wait For Book 2!

In November of last year, I saw my first full-length novel hit the market. It was an exciting time, to say the least. I had fought long and hard to see The Wolf of Descarta in print, and the experience felt like the end of an incredible journey.

ImageI spent most of Winter Break in a euphoric stupor for a number of reasons. But when I wiped the confetti from my eyes and went back to my full-time job as a teacher in January, I realized I somehow had to write another one of these things, and then another. My journey wasn’t over.

In 90’s gamer terms, I had reached the end of disc 1.

And the coup de grace? I had years, more than I’d like to admit, to prune and polish the first book. I hadn’t written a serious work in a few short months since my old ghostwriting days, back when it was my sole occupation to crank out at least ten pages a day. Even then, I did this by living on thirst busters, bad Chinese food, and Jack N the Box–to disastrous results.

Plus, these were one-shots set in reality, not the Dream Box series.

I remember my college professors admonishing us not to get involved in writing a series because it will often drag on, stretch out, and eventually, fade away. I didn’t want any of that to happen to my characters–or to me. I enjoy the cliche that it’s better to burn out than to fade away, a quote that I shamelessly identify with the Kurgan and not with its original source.

ImageRaaaa-miiiiiir-ezzzz! Sorry, couldn’t resist.

Anyway, I’ve found new respect for writers who invest themselves in series work AND for people who live on a schedule, which I’ll admit was never my forte despite my position as a cog in the great machine that is academia. 

The next book in my Dream Box series, Betrayal at Phobos, is scheduled to be released this November. I have most of it on the way to my editor now, but I’m still working on the ending. Subscribers should start to see more material on this blog once this is complete, as well as more information about future publications in the works.

While you’re waiting for more of my ranting and raving, I suggest you enter the raffle my publisher is sponsoring, which can be found here. There are multiple chances to win a free Kindle Fire. After you win, you could always use that bad boy to download the Kindle version of The Wolf of Descarta. Please and thank you. :-)

Sure, you have five months to read it before the next one comes out, but don’t procrastinate. You could end up like me.
