TA, I'd look up the next sci fi convention in your area and sign up to be a vendor. You can bring copies of your books and autograph them. Alot of us congoers LOVE to buy first run copies of a book, they end up becoming very valueable with a autograph by the author

Lol, well after seeing the actual books, I had to order a couple more- one for me, and another in reserve for anyone else who wants an autographed copy. That way I can ship out right away. I guess I will number them too. #001 and #002 are sold already.

As to attending a con, that's an interesting idea. I'd probably have to go to Atlanta for that, as well as order a bunch of books to take with me.

In other news, one of my scientific contacts has told me they are going to check the book out over the holidays. *gulp* Oh boy, here we go. This is where my story gets critiqued by a real scientist. I guess they will just laugh. But I don't know. We'll see.

TA, your scientific friend is going to love it!

I was glad to read that you are going to number the copies you sign! I must admit, that thought has been on my mind for some time, but I feel I've already pestered you too much!

Have you thought of setting up a Facebook page for advertising your book?

When I got to the last chapter, I waited several days before reading it; I didn't want the book to end!

I'm looking forward to reading your next book. Have you started it yet?

lol, started my next book yet? Ha. I am still recovering from writing this one!

And writing the book is only half of it. If everyone hated it, I could of just dropped it and let it die. But with all the good reviews and sales, something is telling me I need to market it a lot more. So I am going to take some time to try and get it out there on a bigger scale. I can't see myself starting a new book for a while yet.

But just so you know, I do have ideas both for a sequel to this book, and also for a completely different piece, non-fiction, about the ordeal my Grandfather went through in World War II. He, along with about 1400 other American troops were taken prisoner by the Japanese near the Philippines, and while they were all being transported by ship, their ship got hit and sunk by an American vessel. Only like six of them survived that after the sharks, ended up on a small island in the middle of nowhere, and... well... let's just say it wasn't pretty. He also survived the Bataan Death March. That's a real story that needs telling. But he's long gone, and I would have to do a whole lot of research for that.

A new way to connect with me and the book via twitter:

Anyone that clicks "follow" to that twitter account (me) will get a follow back! Thanks!

Also, anyone wanting to help increase exposure for this work can:

1) Submit a 5-star review on Amazon- (if you deem it worthy of 5 stars, of course)- this helps a lot.

2) I made a post at Reddit:
Wanna vote it up? Thanks!

3) Tell another person about it- or even lend them yours if you like.

4) Help find me an uber elite pro graphic artist that can redo my cover. They need to have serious experience drawing mega waves, and hopefully, meteor type objects on fire in the air.

Thanks again for all your support!

Autographed copy serial #003 just sold. So I just listed #004 up on Ebay again here:

darnit, now I am gonna have to order more! Am I EVER gonna get to keep one for me?

Man, readers in UK are really increasing. Mostly ebooks, and I have no idea how they are finding it on the Amazon site there. But they are. Pretty cool.

Anyone just coming to this thread (as I did very recently) do yourself a favour and read from page 1 - you won't be disappointed . Not only is the story itself original and gripping the journey of its completion is just as interesting as is the encouragement and constructive criticism of fellow ATS'ers .

Thanks slidingdoor.

Now here's an interesting story:

A Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife officer killed a mountain lion on a Bourbon County farm on Monday, marking the first confirmed sighting of a mountain lion in Kentucky since before the Civil War, said Mark Marraccini, a spokesman for the agency.

Marraccini said a farmer spotted the cat in a tree and alerted the department. When the officer responded, he found the animal had been trapped in different tree by a barking dog and decided it was best to "dispatch it."

Mountain lions were once native to Kentucky but they were killed off here more than a century ago, Marraccini said.

Readers of my book will know exactly why I posted this! NC is not all that far from Kentucky. In fact the Blue Ridge Mountains are very close to other parts of the overall Appalachian Mountain chain, a piece of which runs through far eastern Kentucky. So if one was just killed in KY, chances are high they are also in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western NC. And some people swear to it.

The controversy continues. Careful up in them thar hills, boys. The big cats can get you.

I must say, I've never been much of a reader. Until today! I read every chapter you published in this thread in rapid fashion! I loved every line and look forward to ordering a copy! Well done sir, well done indeed!

Awesome, thanks ima!

Also, readers of this story should know that for the last couple of days now, the book has been darting in and out of the top 100 best sellers on in its genre of Post Apocalyptic Science Fiction! So far the highest rank achieved is #87. Thanks to all of you who have helped get it there by purchasing the ebook!

I made an announcement thread about it here:
