Although formatting and uploading weren't always easy (I'll blog more about them later this week), I was able to get Lyon's Legacy (Catalyst Chronicles, Book One) up on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords. It's available for $2.99 in all three places. Currently it's only in e-book form, but I plan to combine it with Twinned Universes in a paper edition next year. Here's the blurb:
Sometimes being a geneticist isn’t enough to understand your family....
scientist-in-training Joanna Lyon learns her rich uncle plans to have
their rock legend ancestor, Sean Lyon, cloned, she’s disgusted. Uncle
Jack pushed her into music when she was younger, and she hated it. So
it’s particularly galling that he wants her to travel through a wormhole
to an alternate universe and sample Sean’s DNA. She only agrees to go
so she can secretly sabotage the project. But meeting Sean forces her to
re-examine her feelings about her family, including her estranged
father. Can she protect the unborn clone from her uncle, and will she
have to sacrifice her career and new-found love to do so?
To celebrate the release of this novella, I'm going to run two promotions as described below:
1. I'll give away free copies of Lyon's Legacy through Smashwords to the first five people who request them through commenting on this post. In return, I ask that you review my novella. You can do so either on your blog, on one of the sites where it's being sold, or on Goodreads. Please mention where you plan to post your review when you make your request, and please post it by the end of the month. (And of course, please be honest!)
2. Some people may still think self-publishing is going over to the Dark Side, to which I say, "At least they have cookies." Now you can have them too! I will give away a Harry and David gift basket worth up to $40 to one
lucky winner chosen at random. They offer cookie collections, but if
you'd prefer something different, they also offer fruit baskets and
other types of food. You can enter the drawing by spreading the word about this contest, posting a book review on one of the sites mentioned above, or interviewing me on your blog. Please comment on this post with the link by the end of the month. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments as well.
Thank you for your help in spreading the word, and I hope you enjoy the book!
