We have to actively earn each sale, borrow, and new fan, which is helping us to find readers that truly like our combined voice.

We've both been employed as technical writers since 2004 and so although we're indies we are not amateurs. One reviewer wrote that OC is the best written indie they've ever read, which we loved hearing, but it also illustrates the preconception that indie works aren't as polished as those from traditional publishing houses. We have a small army that helps us with the final edits just like the big boys LOL.

OC is going to be on sale again for .99 from 6/13 - 6/20 and we're hoping that the GoodReads community will rally around this deserving debut work. We'd love to be able to afford to quit our day jobs and write full-time, but honestly that'll depend entirely on book sales.(less)

"Fun Romp

The backstory is a delightful way to account for the architectural and engineering wonders from Egypt. The interweaving of what is known of the early inhabitants of that area with plausible filler material from the authors speculation made..." Read more of this review »

Maria Hi, thanks for the invite. : )

message 11: by P.J.

P.J. Kelley Hi S. Degiorgio,

I am sending this message to all my goodreads friends.

My new book is free tomorrow on Amazon (5/9/2015)

You would be doing me a huge favor if you downloaded it and helped send it to the top of the free list for the day.

As an Indie writer, this is the best form of promotion I have.

The book is short, but it took me a couple of years to write, believe it or not, so I do not consider this request spam. I don't like everything I write, but I like this book, so am making this extra effort to promote it.

Also, if you do read the book, provide some honest input (I can take it) and pass the link along to your friends if you are willing.

Free 5-9-2015
Just published won't be free again.

Quick and the Grateful Undead by P.J. Kelley
