Bottom line up front: if you want a free copy of my book in exchange for a review of said book, go here.
Backstory: Story Cartel is a place where authors and readers can connect over free books and reviews. Create a log in, peruse the books on the site, download that which looks interesting to you, agree to write a review, read a free book by an emerging author, and write a review. Simple. I tried it out as a reader with a book called Black. My review is posted somewhere on Amazon – basically I tore through the book and afterwards realized there were serious flaws in the characterization. What do you do with a book that entertains you, but has some issues? You review it.
For my regular readers who come here for the parts where I’m addressing the big questions of how to live with integrity in a world that has completely lost all pretense of being solidly black or white, The Camellia Resistance is a fictional exploration of the same basic themes. It isn’t autobiographical, or even semi-autobiographical, but it does address what happens after the worst thing you can think of takes place. It is decidedly adult, unequivocally fantasy, and thoroughly dystopian. If you haven’t already read it, here’s a chance to see what it is all about. It will only cost you the time it takes to read and 15 minutes to tell amazon how you felt about it.
Basically, it would be a huge personal favor that I hope I can repay by entertaining you for a few reading hours.
