I decided to drop the $2.99 cover price of Patriot Son to Free!
As Post Apocalyptic/Dystopian stories popular among readers isn't a formula crafted novel of it's genre, but rather different in a large way. It's a story of the human condition under the duress of war. Survival is the mainstay of most dystopian societies left behind after a sudden distortion in one's day to day life. No electricity, no mobility or means of transportation, and worse, little or no food. Add all that to the jackels rushing in for the spoils, namely those nations around the world that hate America, and you have a problem.
So why Free?
Simply because I believe it is a story that needs to be told. It's a story that allows me to experiment with developing a writing style apart from Faulkner and his single page sentences, or the short punchy sentences of Hemingway and the dark gritty human side as revealed by John Steinbeck. It's a story crafted and told my me using my reader skills and writing style. My deep admiration for the great writers of our time have kept me humble. Though I will never be like them, I will strive to be the one of the best out there. I have been writing stories for a long time, only recently have I had the honor of publishing a few. As far as formula fiction, I dare say not. A quick road to the top ten perhaps, but it ain't me. I'm still inspired by them in ways that feed my curiousity as such; but like to mix it up a bit when I sit down with my imagination and beging writing.
So, if you like where my story is going in the novel Patriot Son, you definately will love Patriot Son book 2 (Under construction), but available free to read as well.
