As most of you who follow my blog will know, for the last two days I placed my latest ebook novel “The Seventh Age” in the Kindle free download promotional program.
To say that those two days – Friday and Saturday – were nerve-racking for me would be an understatement. But I think the end figures below demonstrate just how successful it was.
Rebel archaeologist Nick Palmer experiences an almost unnoticed event at Stonehenge during the summer solstice celebration of 2011, which he attends along with hundreds of others, that worries him greatly. He is made aware through a blog, of a sinister organization known as the ‘Order’, that are seemingly bent on preventing his every move to discover the reason behind the worrying event.
During his voyage of discovery, Nick is tracked across the world by an enigmatic entity that has been trapped here on Earth for over twenty-five thousand years, awaiting the discovery of the event by what she refers to as a ‘surface-dweller’. Together with her and the few people he trusts implicitly, they set out to prevent the alarmingly inevitable catastrophic conclusion that will affect not only the Earth, but the whole Solar System’s very existence.
Jack’s latest science fiction novel is a tale told in the present day. Beside its topical theme concerning the dire events in 2012 predicted by the Mayan clock, it is also a story full of mystery and adventure in which the tortured love story of a human and an alien female gradually unfolds.
Every once in a while something happens that raises your spirits. The Seventh Age is my second sci-fi novel for this year. I began thinking about how I get it noticed by an industry reviewer. Then I remembered a particular well known writer I am fortunate to have become acquainted with via a well known social media site. If anyone would know who best to approach regarding Seventh being reviewed, perhaps he could point me in the right direction.
The weekend previously, 7th and 8th of April, I had offered up my other sci-fi novel for this year – Turning Point – for free download via Amazon purely as a promotional exercise. It was a success in that it moved 300 copies.
But of the two novels, I felt The Seventh Age was the better of the two. And so after a lot of worrying and fretting, wondering if I was going too far, I plucked up the courage to ask the writer in question if he knew who I should approach. You could have knocked me over with a feather, when out of the goodness of his own heart he did the deed himself. Read the Review To my way of thinking, he is one of the best authorities writing about the ancient world today. In grateful thanks I forwarded a copy of Turning Point to him. You won’t find his review on the US Amazon page – only the UK one.
Who says that good things don’t happen to ordinary people – certainly not me.
Today is the first day of the free download weekend for Turning Point at Amazon.com and Amazon.uk. So far its going well.
To help you decide whether or not you wish to participate by getting your own free copy, I thought you may care to read the reviews:
Take one adventure story, give it a sci fi twist and add world war three. Mix in some answers to historical myths and legends and you have Turning Point. Take a journey with our hero Tom as he crosses the world rallying support to overthrow the evil aliens, you won’t regret it.
I highly recommend this book for all lovers of a good adventure story and if you like sci fi, you’ll find it realistic and entertaining.
This Awesome book does it all for me, the premise is great, the story moves along very nicely, the characters are easy to identify with and it is a very now story.
For all science fiction fans this really is a Good Read.!
In a world full of authors, it’s a delight to know there are still those few who can tell epic tales. Turning Point by Jack Eason fits this bill completely. Set in New Zealand, the tale unfolds of how a likeable young man,Tom, stumbles upon a secret that will change not only his life, but of all humanity. Starting with his discovery of the Nephiles, which then leads him to the dangers posed by the Drana and Khaz, he joins in the fight for survival.
It’s a tale on a grand cosmic scale and so well told, the characters leap from the page at you. A highly recommended read for those who love science fiction and classic adventure tales.
This reminded me of the tales from world War II, the little groups of men and women desperately fighting the Axis powers, doing little more than pinpricks as to a voo doo doll, but each bringing an annoyance of pain to the conquerors.
A rousing tale of desperation and courage and hope. Guts beyond measure, and sacrifice as true to man in this story as it was in the various resistances of old.
The Sci-Fi aspect finally answers some age old questions, one being ‘are we alone?’
A must read for adventure lovers as well as Sci-Fi. Well done Mr. Eason!
I hate getting old! When I woke this morning the muscles in my back went into spasm big time. It took me over half an hour to roll out of bed. Just breathing, or moving a millimetre sent me into paroxysms of unbelievable pain. When I did finally manage to get myself into this chair, I dare not move.
I finally managed to phone my good friend Jamie who came round and took charge. After a phone call to the ambulance service, eventually he got a phone call back from my local GP. Three hours after I woke, the medication was ready to be picked up.
Its been about an hour and a half now since taking the pills. The symptoms, while still extremely painful if I move too quickly, are easing just a little. An hour ago, even typing this was impossible.
During my life I have experienced varying degrees of pain from time to time, but this is truly unbelievable. It’s something for you all to look forward to – not!
