Two for the Price of None – FREE Scifi

Get my robot SciFi shorts FREE on 1/1/14 The Energy Scavengers and The One Who Turned Them On at Amazon.com.

I’m running a promotion for new Science Fiction short “The One Who Turned Them On” the second installment in The Energy Scavengers Series. Coincidentally, Amazon is price-matching the first installment “The Energy Scavengers” for free as well. Now you can get both stories for nothing! Download and enjoy.

“The One Who Turned Them On” (Energy Scavengers II)

Synopsis: On a planet exclusively populated by alien robots, machines struggle to find purpose after abandonment by their creators. Kairos, the highly intelligent and massive weather-machine, monitors the world with cold academic curiosity atop of the great canyon system. He cares only for storms and other significant meteorological events. While below, common worker-bots scavenge daily to find scraps of power that will allow them to subsist in this increasingly savage environment. The Body, a growing robot-collective, is slowly taking over the canyons and oppressing all those that resist its will. Viewing any free power source as a threat, The Body, moves to enlist Kairos in its quest to destroy a mythic, sky-deity who has been benevolently restoring power to injured and disabled machines. Only Ophis, an insignificant and crippled worker-bot, stands in the path of this nefarious task. Will Kairos look beyond his own self-interests, or will he too kow-tow to the collective?

Series Overview: This is the second installment in a robot-themed series which tells the story exclusively through the eyes of machines. The works are interconnected but can stand on their own.

“The Energy Scavengers” (Energy Scavengers I)

Synopsis: When mankind reaches far out into the universe to find other life forms it may first find machines. A string of planets on the outer edges of the Milky Way contain the mechanical workers of an ancient alien civilization. Calvin, an exploratory rover coupled with, Nutshell, his landing ship, are sent to discover what all these machines are still doing–now that they’ve been abandoned by their alien owners. First contact comes not by hand of man, but by metal of machine.

Great reviews for “Overtime in the Woods” – FREE on 7/16/13 @ Amazon

Since my suspenseful short story is receiving great reviews on Amazon, I’m going to make it free on 7/16/13. The story is available here: http://www.amazon.com/Overtime-in-the-Woods-ebook/dp/B00D3WOE0E

This is my third release and I appreciate all the feedback from people and the hundreds of downloads I’ve received so far. Check out a few quotes from Amazon reviewers:

“A MATTER OF CHOICES…Well crafted suspense here and much food for thought…The author builds this feeling; a feeling of the unknown and implied “bad things could happen,” very skillfully. It is also a story of choices; of doing the right thing after all the facts are known and is everything as it seems?…But I tell you truthfully, this young writer most certainly has the potential and I suspect that we will be hearing much from him on down the road….” – Don Blankenship (Hall of Fame, Top 50 Reviewer, Vine Voice – Amazon.com).

"Overtime in the Woods"“A creepy backwoods thriller…4 1/2 Stars…well written with a accomplished sense of pace and timing…Overall, an enjoyable short thriller, well written….” – Ray Nicholson (Top 1000 Reviewer – Amazon.com)

“Quirky with a touch of Fraughtness…On the strength of this though I may just be tempted to look at the other short stories put out by this author which can be seen here or here…” –Tom Stronach (Amazon.co.uk)

“Thought-provoking dilemma…The unexpected moral quandary in which Investigator Lacey finds himself is richly nuanced and nicely presented in this little novella which ends on a “The Lady, or the Tiger?” note.” – Judith Paley (Vine Voice, Amazon.com)

“Striking and effective…It’s a gripping and suspenseful read that I easily swallowed in one quick read on a long bus ride, and I was compltely engulfed by it throughout. O’Reilly does a masterful job with pacing and building up suspense…it’s this perfect build-up and constant feeling of unease and dread that makes it a very engaging and effective read; it keeps the reader intrigued throughout, and then leaves them with some very interesting questions about the moral implications it raises. A very solid story by a promising young author…” – Itamar Katz (Amazon.com)

“Very enjoyable short story…This is a well-written suspenseful tale that captures the reader’s interest from page one and holds it throughout the entire reading…” – Israel Drazin (Top 1000 Reviewer, Vine Voice, Amazon.com)

“Short, enjoyable story…Moral values are in question when an investigator attempts to collect evidence of fraud. When the target and the investigator meet, a choice must be made. I was interested in the story and the characters although I have never been a big fan of short stories. I always want more information. I would recommend this story as a quick read.” – Debra Miller (Amazon.com)

Thanks to all!

New Story Coming Out Very Soon…

After a long absence of furious writing on various works-in-progress, I am finally readying to publish another short story. Unlike my previously released novelettes this will be a work of “suspenseful” fiction. The tale involves a private investigator, who finds himself in an unusual moral dilemma. Target Release: June 1, 2013

"Overtime in the Woods" (preliminary sketchwork and layout)

“Overtime in the Woods”
(early sketch)

Once again, Daniel Gracey of G2 Comics is the man to breathe visual and stunning life into the story and characters I’ve created. I’ve included a VERY preliminary sketch to give a taste of things to come. Wait until you see the vibrant and vivacious cover in all its colors.

Other things to look forward too are a spectacular book trailer by Craig Knit (Out of Whack Productions) with music composed and performed by John Doyle of the metal band: I Decline. Always expect great things from these guys.

Also, I’ve decided to take my writing even more serious by engaging Tammy Salyer (Inspired Ink) for copyediting and proofreading. She was awesome to work with, very responsive and professional.

The story has been trending well with 4 out of 5 stars on Amazon and Goodreads. The website “WiLoveBooks” said this: “A cool little story about what happens when you mess around with nature. The author did a great job of building up the suspense. Bats creep me out anyway. I may have nightmares now. A fun, creepy, short read.”

I appreciate all the support and hope people continue to enjoy the story.

Synopsis: Rick Silvano, an anxious young geneticist, has gotten himself entangled with a violent, South American, drug-lord named Diego Peres. Rick’s talents have been enlisted by Peres to create genetically enhanced watchdogs, by combining common moustache bats with Africanized honeybees. Everything has gone smoothly for the last three years until now, the night before Peres is due to inspect his investment. Clive Pinkerman, who hosts a late-night, radio conspiracy show, announces on-air that he is going to break into the genetic laboratory to uncover a massive alien conspiracy he believes is housed there. Suddenly, Rick must juggle his time between stopping Clive, and making sure the experiment works so that the temperamental Peres will not be displeased.
