One of our regular participants on Discord (Tern) mentioned the other day that he had written a series of science fiction novels, and that for a couple of days the Kindle editions were free. Book 1 is free until Sunday, and Book 2 is free for 5 days starting on Sunday.

I figured I'd humor him and download it. How bad could it possibly be?

I'm halfway through the first book. I was up last night until 4 AM reading it. (I'm paying for that today!)

I really, really like it so far.

You can get you free copies here:
Book 1: The Short War 1: Invasion: A comedy of alien invasion (free through Sunday)
Book 2: The Short War 2: Preparation: A comedy of alien invasion (free for a few days starting on Sunday)

I just got Book 2, which is available for free starting today. I'm almost done with the first book. Enjoying it, but not going to say more because... spoilers.

Don't thank me; you wrote it! You did all the work, and I all I did was enjoy reading it. Now on to book 2!

(You've got until the end of the week to finish/rewrite/whatever book 3. So far, I like 2 as much as 1, so maybe not even that long. Don't you dare turn into another George R.R. Martin. I can't wait 10 years for the next book!)

Read the first 5 chapters of book 1 last night. Fantastic book Tern! You don't want to put it down once you start reading it. It holds your attention and you really want to see what's next!

Good job! Enjoying it greatly!
