Why You Should Read “Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes,” besides the .99 Special….

    1.  Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes, the sci-fi novella, is just .99 in Kindle e-book until 9/30, and it is also still in Kindle Unlimited.  You can get it here for .99 or get it through Kindle Unlimited:  https://www.amazon.com/Seeing-Through-Sampsons-Eyes-anothers-ebook/dp/B01GNNCHHQ

2.  This was my second novella, a tale of what Abrielle and Norrie, characters from my first published novella, decide to do to find what remains of their beloved Sampson.  It is, in that sense, a heartfelt novel.  Abrielle was the main character in my first novella, but Norrie, who grew up in that story, grew stronger and wanted to take over.

3.  Norrie, a twenty year old young woman, is along with her mom for the ride, but at some point, she veers off on her own.  There are many things she wants to learn, and there is a seriously empty spot in her life.  So, she does venture off on her own.  Norrie is fearless, independent, and very forward-thinking.  I had a heck of a lot of fun writing this character as a budding young woman who won’t take less than she deserves and even breaks a few rules that she feels are worth breaking.  All of this led to a more suspenseful story in this novella.

4.  Read the most recent review, a 5 star rating:  https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/2131664981?book_show_action=true&from_review_page=1

This reader actually read the articles I cited at the end!

“On a lighter note, I like the little snippets of the future world –where weddings are an ‘awe’ thing, pennies don’t exist, hover cars do, and, wait for it, cats are now extinct. ‘Curiosity killed the squirrel.’ Nice article in the end from macroevolution in which a cat gave birth to a squirrel. Fascinating!
This was an interesting/ intriguing read and I look forward to the next book in the series.”

5.  There are more fun things (that is, suspenseful situations) coming for Norrie in the future.  Read about her; I think you’ll love her!  She’s everything I wish I was at that age….  https://www.amazon.com/Seeing-Through-Sampsons-Eyes-anothers-ebook/dp/B01GNNCHHQ

N is for Norrie. #AtoZChallenge (Ebook free 4/17 and 4/18)!

Norrie is a main character in one of my sci-fi novellas.  We saw her grow up in Made for Me, a sci-fi romance, and now, she is a star of its sequel, the sci-fi coming of age novella, Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes.  Norrie is now twenty-two years old and is a Master’s student of Ethics in Robotics.

Norrie was a character created out of my desire to dream and escape.  In fact, she is everything I wish I was in my early twenties!  In this novella, there is much she sees about society that she wishes to change, particularly, humankind’s technological advances and treatment of a new type of earthly citizen (or non-citizen), and she takes steps to do so.  There is also a little bit of romance in this novella, but don’t be fooled.  This is not a romance, it is about Norrie exploring who she is.

I invite you to view my interview with this main character at https://pamelascanepa.wordpress.com/2016/11/27/rrbc-sci-fi-amwriting-an-interview-with-my-main-character-norrie/

Here is an excerpt:

When asked, What are you most passionate about?  Norrie answers:

I believe man has to be responsible to his creations.  If you create something to be just like you, then you should not treat it like dirt on your shoe.  Similar to the cruelty against animals clause.  They are another living thing and deserve the good treatment you’d want for yourself if they were the ones holding the leash. Some would argue a creation of man is his to do with as he pleases. Well, not when you are using living DNA.

You may view a preview or purchase Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes at the link above for Kindle and K.U. download or in paperback.  In fact, I believe in Norrie and want to share her with the world so much, and she is going to show up later in some of my future books, so I am offering this ebook for free download today and tomorrow to coincide with this post!  Just hit the buy link above, or click this universal link: https://bookgoodies.com/a/B01GNNCHHQ .  If you like it, please follow me on Amazon, for there is much more to come, and won’t you please leave a review as well?

*Please note:  This is second in the series, but can read well on its own as well.

Thank you for stopping by!

Free download of the sci-fi novella, “Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes.”

stse

One reader calls it a “very fascinating and scary observation of human nature.”  Have you ever tried seeing the world through someone else’s eyes?  This futuristic sci-fi novella imagines it as a literal and metaphorical feat.  You can get it for free, starting 9/22!  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GNNCHHQ

Download my second sci-fi novella, Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes, for free from 9/22 to 9/25.  Considered “darker, with a dangerous edge,” this one follows more closely the character of Norrie from Made for Me.  Both she and Abrielle are searching for some truths, but it’s soon Norrie’s turn to set out on her own.  She’s all grown up now, fearless, and curious, longing to find the truth about her biological father and the father who raised her.  This book continues the timeline of Made for Me, but can also be read as a stand alone.  Download it here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01GNNCHHQ

If you’d like to read Made for Me, a sweet sci-fi romance, first, it is available on Kindle or Kindle Unlimited at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DZ5230G  A big thank you to the readers who have recently read it on Kindle Unlimited!

I hope you enjoy, and I thank you for reading!

New e-book published! From Bedlam to Ben

 

My 75 year old mother says, “I just want to put my arms around him.” (So, I chose well, huh)?  She was referencing the cover of my latest e-book, From Bedlam to Ben.  Ben is fearless, protective, strong, and full of inner turmoil.  Read about Ben’s struggle and transformation through, oh wait, that’s what the trailer is for.  Give it a look?

From Bedlam to Ben, a sci-fi novelette with romance, tension, and turmoil, is now available for .99 download on Smashwords at http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/656337 and on Amazon at http://amzn.to/2b3ND3O

With the purchase of this e-book, the reader is given a link to sign-up to receive a 20 page short story that is a spin-off of my upcoming time travel novel.  I say “upcoming” loosely; I just started editing and it most likely will be coming out in a year, since I insist on holding a full-time job.  Stubborn, I am.  🙂  I am also hoping to get this time travel book into print and e-book form.  So much to learn…

Please do give the book trailer a look, download the novelette for .99.  It is a continuation of the Made for Me series but reads well as a stand alone as well.  I may not publish many e-books for a while, since I am gestating a full-length book, and I intend for it to be fully cooked and served just right!  You may get more short stories from me in the interim; ideas just pop up at times.

Happy reading, everyone!  For those of you who are like me, happy writing!  May you be driven, ambitious, obsessed, sleepless,  but most of all, inspired!

Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes, special price, 1.99

SampsonsEyesSmallproxy

Now 1.99 for Kindle download.  Seeing Through Sampson’s Eyes, the second e-book in the Made for Me series, is now just 1.99 for a Kindle download.  It’s all strategy, and maybe we could call it a test, but at 107 pages, this book is a novella.  Reader so far seem to really like it, but wish it had been longer.  I suppose that’s a good sign, right?  So I decided to lower the price for a while and see how it goes.  I think it’s an amazing deal.  It is separated from Made for Me because the tone is entirely different.  A reader in the U.K. says it reminds her of Bladerunner, a movie I have always loved, but certainly with less violence.  One reader said it really got her thinking and even reminded her of some of the stories that show up on our primetime news reports lately.  I can see that parallel as well, and I’m sure that affected my ideas in writing this story.  Topics involved: #sci-fi, #coming-of-age, #ethics in future technology and #equality.  Find it here:  https://goo.gl/PR0O9s
The plan is that I will have this book priced at $1.99 through Labor Day weekend, at which point I will reassess my plan.  I am soon planning to publish this book on Smashwords as well, making it available for Nook, Barnes and Noble, and various other retailers as well as Kindle.  Wish me luck!  It’s a lot of work, but I am willing to do it.  In the meantime, I recommend you give this book a read.  It is a nice continuation from Made for Me, but can also be read on its own, and provides a good deal of suspense as well.  Again, you can download it on Amazon through this link: https://goo.gl/PR0O9s

Happy Reading!
