Meet ‘Wally,’ the new character in the Al Clark Series Prelude-Christopher’s Journal. He doesn’t say much, but plays a mean game of Chess.
How do you make a story about a young man trapped on a deserted starship interesting? Whatever it takes.
I have given away hundreds of copies of this short story and received two reviews. So I asked myself why. I did everything I could to make the story hold a reader’s attention and still it appears I failed. My sister, who is an established author, read the story. She told me it was boring.
When there is one MC, and a ship, it’s difficult to make the tale memorable, so I did the only thing I could think of. Added another character. Have you ever tried to weave another character into an established book series? I have. It’s hurts the brain.
Completely revised, I am confident this story is a compelling prelude to the Al Clark Series. Included are four drawings to use as reference while reading the series.

He is not your everyday hero.
VINCENT by Jonathan G. Meyer – Narrated by John McLoughlin
Jim Thompson is having a bad year.
Last year, he celebrated his twenty-fifth wedding anniversary, had a good job he liked, and a home for retirement he built himself.
This year, at fifty-four years of age; he is divorced, unemployed, and homeless.
Luckily, his fortune is about to make a radical change.
Enter Vincent, an extraterrestrial visitor with a crucial mission to save both our world and his, and a lesson on just how small Jim’s place in the universe is.
To help the alien and save two worlds, Jim must overcome his shortcomings to become the hero Vincent so desperately needs.
Available on Audible, Amazon, and iTunes.
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.

The story is a short prequel to the series that introduces you to a main character in the Al Clark Series. He is prematurely awakened from stasis and endures almost a year trapped in a portion of a crippled starship alone and fearing the worst.
To kill time and stay sane, Chris documented his ordeal in a journal, complete with drawings to illustrate his confinement. This book is a copy of that journal.
