It’s been a huge couple days. Super huge. I won’t waste your time by going on about the ups and downs of the past week. Better to get to the point. Two announcements, both of them awesome.
The latest Olesia Anderson novella, BLACKOUT PART 1, has hit Amazon! It’s a the first part of a double-length Olesia adventure that sees my favourite spy headed into the badlands of Mexico on a life-or-death operation.
No friends. No backup. On the run, and headed for the most violent city in the world. It’s all in a day’s work for Olesia Anderson.
After narrowly escaping a hit-squad sent by her former employers, Olesia is headed south. Her only hope: Kay, the assassin-for-hire she worked with in Moscow. Kay promises answers, so long as Olesia helps with a job across the US-Mexico border, in the badlands of Juarez.
This could be the mission that kills her. But if it takes her one step closer to the truth about her parents, and the man pulling Zero Error’s strings…
It’s been waaaay too long between Olesia Anderson releases, so getting this one out the door is an important milestone. Part 2 is going through final revisions right now and will hopefully be available by the end of April 2015!
The second bit of news is just as awesome. No, wait. MORE awesome. You see… ah, hell. Easier to just show you.
Yep, Century of Sand is going to be part of an upcoming Storybundle! What’s a Storybundle, you ask? Well, it’s a pay-what-you-want collection of novels – in this case, novels that all survived the famously gruelling review process of the Immerse or Die report. To summarise – Jefferson Smith, the guy behind the IoD report, gets on his treadmill every morning with a new book. For a book to survive the test, it must hold his attention for the entire 40 minute walk… and Smith is very unforgiving.
This upcoming Storybundle collection doesn’t just collect books that survived the 40 minutes. It collects the elite few that made it through the report AND a subsequent front-to-back read. Jefferson may be harsh, but he knows his fiction, and the eight novels included in the Storybundle are the best of the best.
I’m honoured for Century of Sand be included among that number.
The Immerse or Die Storybundle will be available from April 15th, when you’ll be able to buy the entire collection for… well, however much you want to pay. A buck? Done. Fifty bucks? We appreciate your kindness! Either way, you’ll be getting an amazing bunch of fiction for an absolute bargain.
So keep an eye out on April 15th, and enjoy Olesia Anderson #7.1: Blackout!
