The Mandate Series (Science Fiction)
« on: November 14, 2014, 08:09:27 AM »
12 years in the making, and I have finally finished my first novel. It is called The Mandate of Earth and is now available on Amazon--and is already a bestseller in the Hard Science Fiction Top 100, consistently since launch! I'm offering a FREE copy in Kindle/Nook/PDF format to any regular member in return for an honest Amz review. Send me a PM with your email address if interested.

Update: A Trade Paperback edition is now available!

Big Congratz Jon. from what I read of it I thought it was a good and engaing story. My close freind ended up reading it when she came to stay a month or so back and couldn't put it down. She said "your friends a clever f*@&er isn't he" I said huh ? and she replied, that novel, its good but I didn't know what a few of the big words meant and had to look them up in a dictionary (She's not english). She liked it though :)

Oh, wow, that version was quite a few months ago already. It's been rewritten about 25% since summer. I'm still struggling with a couple of technical issues (getting the science just right). Do you have an e-reader? If you remind me after it's done I'll send you a mobi or epub file. That goes for anyone who wants a copy here.

How about a copy of the final polished version? It ended up being improved quite a bit in the final 6 months. :) I was pretty nervous releasing it in the indie self-pub market but without any advertising it's selling already at full price. I'm looking forward to offering a sale after the first 30 days are up, then it should pick up quite a bit. if this was a sucky pile of drivel I would just hide it away somewhere... but obviously biased, still I think it is a really good read. hope reviews back that up...

That would be great, thanks. Will send to your email. If you need a format other than MOBI, let me know, I can convert to any format.
