Seems perfectly reasonable to celebrate the spring after sort of skipping it, and summer, and fall, like we did last year as this pandemic plunged right into winter mode.
So I’ve decided to offer the digital version of Potential: A Novel for 99 cents from March 20 to March 27 for those adults looking for a story about men trying to figure out how to overcome their own shortcomings while living in a tough world.
I’ve also pegged my newest novel’s digital format, The Last Disruptor, at $1.99 from March 20 to March 27. This sci-fi novel written for middle grade kids and their adults will make you laugh, smile and cry as Crate, a boy with a big imagination, joins his friends in trying to save the world with stories. You UK readers, by the way, you get a deal on TLD as well.
Wait a minute, Rob, you must be joking. We don’t want to be reading after a year of being cooped up, you’re probably saying, or might think or you know.
“Ahh, I know, I know. But here’s the thing, friends. It’s why I’m making it digital only, so you can take my books with you on your phone as you get ready to venture out into our world reborn from this pandemic.”
Like you, I see everywhere around me the signs of life. I yearn to hit the hiking trails and the roads and not have to have a mask on me. I want to hear friends voices as we trade stories about family and work, about hard times and funny times that we’ve had and be able to drink our coffee or beer as you please.
But as much as I want that, and yes, we’re starting to loosen ourselves from the grip of this virus, we still must be cautious, like the new-born fawns and rabbits that are now starting to find their legs. We need patience and what better way than to do that by reading.
So that is why my digital deal is the perfect start to spring. I’ll hope you’ll download my books, this spring and, when you’re not smelling flowers, running, hiking, laughing and talking, I hope you’ll still sit down with a book and read a bit. You don’t want to overdo it.
You can, I hope overdo everything in the summer.
