We, The People Of The Clouds available for pre-order

Friday, 26 September 2014

Virtual reality adventure We, The People Of The Clouds was published last year in the Ruined Cities anthology, but rights revert on November 22nd, at which point I'll be publishing the 13,000 word novelette on Amazon. And, in an experiment with Amazon's new preorder facility, the book is available to preorder now.

The pre-order price is 99c/75p, which will double to the permanent price of $1.99/£1.50 a week or so after release. If you grab a copy now it will magically appear on your Kindle in November, at the pre-order price.

Reality is broken...
For Marlon Smith the afterlife is a beach. The computer-generated world his consciousness inhabits provides for his every need. But then flaws begin to appear in the fabric of reality around him. Flaws that shouldn't be possible. Flaws only he can see.
He has to move quickly, before his actions are spotted and edited out. He starts to uncover the truth of how the afterlife functions. As he does so, he reveals unexpected secrets about his own past, too.
And he also finds out about those who are intent on destroying his whole reality...

I had a lot of fun writing this story, especially as I was able to weave some Arthurian mythology into all the virtual world SciFi. Find out more here.


  1. Sounds like another good one, Simon. Pre-order, eh? I hear that's a good way to "contribute toward sales rank and other Kindle Store merchandising ahead of release, which can help more readers discover your book."

    1. Yeah, seems like a good approach. All the cool writers are doing it...

  2. Congrats, Simon. I'm also interested in the pre-order on Amazon, although I'll need more than that to make the cool writers circle : ).
    Hope it works out; you'll have to let us know.

    1. The truly cool writers are those who don't think they belong in the cool writers' circle - so that means you're in...


I'd love to know what you think.
