Super-fun stuff today – a new book by Indie author H.S. Stone! I had the privilege of reading his Beyond New Eden (which I found much more awesome than I expected) and interviewing him about his writing process, how The Hunger Games influenced his writing, and how he’s usually sick of his own books before he’s done editing.
So when he contacted me about his new book, Keep Your Enemies Close – the alien invasion story he taunted me with in his interview – and asked me to help promote the release, I said, “absolutely!”
Now tell me, is this cover not awesome?
First, the probes arrived. Then the mother ship landed. The Lia’s world changed forever.
With the alien invaders’ arrival, Lia and her best friend, Bryn, sign up for military duty to protect their town. When the aliens attack, however, Lia and her comrades are helpless to stop them. Worse, after the attack, she discovers that several of the townspeople, including her family, were abducted. Despite Lia’s pleading, no one wants to save those taken by the aliens.
Desperate to rescue her parents and little sister, Lia turns to the only source of help she can find…a captured alien invader.
An alien invasion, and the main character gets help from a captured invader – I’ve seen this idea done spectacularly before, and from what I know of H.S. Stone’s writing, I have super high hopes for Keep Your Enemies Close. (Stay tuned for a review hopefully before the end of the month.)
And if that wasn’t awesome enough: FREE BOOKS! If you buy Keep Your Enemies Close in January and email a proof of purchase (i.e. scanned receipt or screenshot of the book on your ereader) to firstname.lastname@example.org, you’ll get a Smashwords coupon good for a FREE copy of any one of H.S. Stone’s books! (Take him up on it! I can personally say that Beyond New Eden is awesome, but George and the Galactic Games and In the Hands of Children look fantastic, too.)
