Al Clark-Asteroid (Book Five) is Live

Al Clark-Asteroid, the fifth installment of my Al Clark Series is now available on most major digital sites. This new book was a year in the making and different than the others. For one thing, I didn’t have to kill anyone off. There are some close calls of course, but nobody dies. In the same tradition as the other books in the series, it is good old-fashioned science fiction. Other than Al and Robot Nine it has a totally new cast of characters, new exciting locations, and unexpected villians. It is part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone.

There is a dark and desolate asteroid far out in our solar sysem, hiding among a multitude of orbiting frozen rocks, with a large hatch leading inside. Waiting patiently in the bowels of this abandoned black planetoid is a discovery with the potential to revolutionize space travel.

When Al and his intrepid crew received a questionable tip concerning a mineral rich prospect begging to be exploited, they undertook the long trip to investigate. Upon arrival they suffer a space explorer’s biggest nightmare. Through no fault of their own their ship crashes, stranding them with limited supplies and resources.

Their first and highest priority is to survive. The second priority is to repair their ship well enough to leave and complete the rebuilding at the nearest shipyard.

Once the crash cripples their ship, the odds are stacked against them, and they will need to utilize every resource to escape – including the treasures contained deep below the hatch.

Can they make use of the discovery concealed inside this unremarkable black asteroid?

Al Clark (Book One)

This is the first book in the Al Clark Series, and it is available at your favorite digital store for *FREE*

If you like good Old-Fashioned Science Fiction, this is the series for you.

Al Clark is not his given name. It is the name he borrowed from a faded placard fastened to the door of the room where he awoke. His past, along with his identity, have been ripped away, leaving him to begin a new life.

Where he is or how he got there is a puzzle he must leave for later. His most pressing priority is simple – he must first survive.

Friday Rant

Three days left on my 99cent Sale for Al Clark (Book One), and I’m unsure whether to be happy or sad. For this promotion I picked eight of the best promo sites other than Bookbub, and invested $225.00. So far, it looks as if I will break even and perhaps distribute 150 copies. Is it a success or failure? Hard to tell.

Marketing books in today’s climate can be daunting and frustrating. Every time I find something that works, the tactic does not last long. The only true constant seems to be having a lot of books, and devoting a lot of time to promotion. Unfortunately, promotion steals time from writing and makes it difficult to be prolific.

I am a retired electrician with a love for science fiction, that writes to supplement my income. My savings allow me a comforable life with few frills, so whatever extra income I can produce is helpful. When it comes to marketing my books, it’s necessary to have a posative outcome.

Promoting books for free is no longer worth bothering with, which leads to an ever growing marketing budget. A SciFi post on Bookbub is $750, and well worth it if you can get in. If handled properly, it is one of the few sites where you can be guaranteed to do better than break even. Even though the price is way above my budget, I submit as often as possible. To this point I have not been accepted–but I have hope.

Everything I have goes into my books. Because I won’t be able to leave my kids a large estate after my passing, the books will be my legacy. Thanks to all of you that support me, and Please don’t be afraid to leave a review or tell your friends. Every little bit helps immensely.
