Phoenix Sullivan reached out to be about participating in a bundle, and given her stature, how could I say no?

The result is Force Majeure, a collection of six epic novels about, well…disaster, plague, biblical-level-end-of-the-world shit, and so on.

Force Majeure

Why should you care? Because Upon A Pale Horse, my bio-thriller, is the lead novel, which is really akin to you buying it for under a buck and getting five other great reads for free.

Which is really the perfect summer read. Mankind meeting the apocalypse book after book. I prefer my plague with a margarita, but you may be thinking Corona. Tomato, tomahto.

The authors are top shelf. Freezing Point by Karen Dionne, who’s an RT Best First Mystery Nominee, has gotten rave reviews, as have Toni Dwiggins’ bestselling Volcano Watch and USA Today Bestselling Author Melissa F Miller’s Indispensable Party. Sector C, by Phoenix Sullivan, as been an Amazon Top 100 novel, and The Rift, by Nebula Award Winner Walter Jon Williams, are gripping reads. So how can you go wrong? Answer: you can’t.

So go forth and get the bundle. It’s the right price, Upon A Pale Horse is one of my favorite, and certainly, one of my most important novels dealing with a topic so shocking that it’s been banned in nine countries (none of which you can probably pronounce, as they require clicks and pops instead of consonants and vowels, but still) and burned in three Kentucky school districts, or will be once they discover fire.

Don’t delay. This baby will only be on sale for a very limited time, and Phoenix has assured me that one of the lucky purchasers will get a car or a private plane or something through mysterious and yet undeniable cosmic forces. I wouldn’t F with that. If you wind up in August with no car or private plane, it’s kind of your fault, not mine, because you were alerted, so quit whining, take life by the reins, and do something for yourself for once. Buy. My. Crap.

There. I said it. It’s out in the open.

In other news, I’m super excited about the German cover for JET, and it looks like I’ll be able to get it with some modifications for the English language version. How cool is that? I’m pretty stoked. Maybe I’ll even sell a few. Fingers crossed…

    Yes, we know all about fire. Hey, we’re not all hillbilly’s here in KY. I’ve read that book but didn’t know it was a banned book. Go figure. Probably zealots.

      No offense to any non-stereotypical-Kentuckians, of course. Those would number the two or three that read my blog.

    That’s great news about the Jet cover!

    For a surprise, I did not have your Upon a Pale Horse. I do now. Did I mention you are getting expensive? Just teasing on the expensive part besides I like Phoenix Sullivan too. So 2 for 99 cents and 4 freebies.

    Okay, Russell. I. Just. Bought. Your. Crap. (Never thought I’d say that)….Brilliant title – of course. And am looking forward to cower under my featherbed in fear of The End. But since I had Yellowstone blow up in my last novel, I’ve got to see what other disasters are befalling humankind (and our critters).
    Hope someone survives…I know you will. What enormous output! Congratulations almost seem condescending – still, heartfelt congrats!
