Since time immemorial (or "since yesterday" as Donald Trump puts it), artists have sought patronage.
So do I. Writing is fun and can bring joy to others, but the income of that work is irregular -- which makes it harder.
Therefore I now have a Patreon account, where you can -- if you want -- choose to pay a modest sponsorship for my continued work to create literature, art and other creative stuff. (Such as computer games!)
As part of Amazon's Free Book Promotion program, I have scheduled the ebook edition of my science fiction novel ALIEN BEACH to be available for FREE during a limited period: Dec. 24, 2017 - Dec. 28, 2017.
About the novel ALIEN BEACH:
Originally written in 1997, this novel deals with the effects of an imagined "first contact" with extraterrestrial visitors (if it had occurred in the late 1990s).
The story has two parallel plotlines. The first one involves an international team of scientists who study the small group of alien visitors, stationed on a secluded Pacific atoll. The second plotline follows a lone, possessed (or perhaps crazy) man who is trying to get in touch with the same aliens.
The amphibian aliens are physically not extremely different from humans. But their minds are profoundly different, and the human characters in the story struggle to understand the aliens' thinking and philosophy.
And even though the alien visitors are peaceful, their very presence trigger a global culture shock -- which culminates in the threat of war.
ALIEN BEACH was originally posted on my first webpage in serial format in 1999. This is the definitive edition of the novel.
