A big thank you to everyone who helped with the wonderfully successful Kickstarter campaign for The Hereafter Bytes by Vincent Scott! We appreciate our backers and also those of you who retweeted and spread the word.
It will take a couple of weeks for Kickstarter to transfer the funds. Once that happens, we’ll start editing the manuscript and developing the art for backer rewards. When we set the release date for this book, we’ll post an announcement. We’re looking forward to publishing this book!
We’re happy to announce that Thinking Ink Press will be running a Kickstarter campaign March 11-April 1, 2020 for a new sci fi comedy book, The Hereafter Bytes by Vincent Scott.
Come for the cyberspace, stay for the laughs. Come for the laughs, stay for the cyberspace.
Romeo is a digital copy of his dead bio self—a ghost—in a spindly robot body. When Romeo’s friend Abigail—a dominatrix with a gift for uncovering secrets—tells Romeo she’s at risk because of dangerous info from a client, Romeo agrees to help her investigate.
Pursued by digital Golden Retrievers and a real-world assassin, Romeo slips in and out of cyberspace in a madcap race for survival. Can he unmask the criminal who threatens the integrity of cyberspace and the real-world economy before it’s too late?
If you click this link before March 11, you’ll see the pre-launch page. Once the project goes live, the link will take you to the project page where you’ll see more detail and will be able to back the project.
We hope you’ll check out this campaign. This is a fun book that we believe will appeal to many readers.
We’re happy to announce that we will be publishing the science fiction novel Luna’s Lament by David Colby. Luna’s Lament is the third book in the Lunar Cycle trilogy. Here’s a look at the cover, with gorgeous original art created by Sandi Billingsly.
The year: 2068
The place: Luna, the colony that’s waging war against the Earth.
The objective: Revenge.
Drusilla Zhao has entered into the shadowy, dangerous world of the S3TA—the Space Special Service, Transhuman Arm. Equipped with hyperadvanced technology and cybernetic augmentations, the S3TA are the Chinese-American Alliance’s trump card. But will Dru’s desire for revenge on the enemies who took everything she ever cared about blind her to the true enemy that lurks closer than she could possibly imagine?
Author David Colby combines hard science details with page-turning action and a diverse cast of characters for a unique science fiction experience that you won’t soon forget.
