Cover Reveal and Pre-Order The Playground by C.S. Boyack

A splendid storyteller, Craig Boyack is a prolific writer. He has one of the most creative minds I have come across. His work, while all well-crafted, is not genre specific. He is able to develop interesting concepts into fascinating stories that defy genre conventions. One of my favorite categories on his blog is the Idea Mill, where he shares unusual research tid-bits and then develops ideas for mini short stories from what he has gleaned. I invite you to follow his blog and check out his latest novel creation.

Introducing The Playground
The Playground

The hottest toys of the Christmas Season are the Playground Network dolls. They contain a worldwide social network for children. Except, the network is controlled by a ruthless businessman with dreams of power.

To reach his goals he turns to the occult. Will our children make up his personal army? Could we have an enemy soldier in every home?

Gina Greybill is a cancer survivor who stumbles into her own brush with the paranormal. She wants nothing to do with it, but may be the only one who can bring down the Playground Network. To do it she’ll have to embrace her new situation, and recover the next generation of Playground software.

There is competition for the software in the form of a brutal thug named Clovis. He’s bigger, more ruthless, and more experienced. To top it all off, he has a head start.

The Playground is suitable for more mature readers, due to violence and mature themes.

***

I was born in a town called Elko, Nevada. I like to tell everyone I was born in a small town in the 1940s. I’m not quite that old, but Elko has always been a little behind the times. This gives me a unique perspective of earlier times, and other ways of getting by. Some of this bleeds through into my fiction.

I moved to Idaho right after the turn of the century, and never looked back. My writing career was born here, with access to other writers and critique groups I jumped in with both feet.

I like to write about things that have something unusual. My works are in the realm of science fiction, paranormal, and fantasy. The goal is to entertain you for a few hours. I hope you enjoy the ride.

Craig

Story Overview

Nicolas Deschanel was betrayed by the only two people who matter to him. Their disloyalty stung and an overwhelming sense of loss lingers. Nicolas has lived the high life professing to not have a care in the world, and now this illusion is calling his bluff.

Determined to take control of an existence now devoid of purpose, he sojourns to his family’s holiday home on the Gulf of Mexico. Resolved more than depressed, he plans to privately say goodbye to a world which no longer needs him. Of questionable fortune, he finds a woman, Mercy, sitting alone on the shore at eventide. Nicolas is conflicted between an obligation to help, and annoyance at her intrusion.

Mercy has many layers of secrets. Deepest of all, she cannot tell this Child of Man she is thousands of years old and very powerful. In her presence, Nicolas’ own dormant powers begin to surface, triggering a sequence of events that cause both of their lives to spiral further out of control. When old friends from both sides come to help, together they all learn a painful truth: new life can only begin once you’ve set free what means the most.

Today I am unveiling my new book cover image for “Red Clay and Roses”,

But first I have some things to say:

Most significantly, I want to express appreciation for the warm sincerity that I feel from my new wordpress family.  Without your support and encouragement I do not know where I would be.  You have given me both strength and hope.  I have learned so much from your posts. Learning is an ongoing process and you have been so kind. I learn something new and useful from all of you every day, even if it is from example and you are not setting out to teach anything in particular. I am delighted to have become a part of a great blogging experience.  Thank you for being who you are.

Second, I made a lot of mistakes.  I did significant research on publishing books, just not in the right places.  My book is well edited, but the “package” sucked…really it did.  I have, with your help, been working on improving that.  I have updated both my book description and author bio.  I have received more reviews and am learning how to market my book.  I am also very excited to be posting my new book cover image today.  Since this is not a series or a new publication I am not planning a formal book cover reveal.  It will be posted on my site and you most certainly have my permission to reblog and that would be greatly appreciated.

One of the nicest things about being an Indie Author is having the control to make changes when I feel like changes are warranted.   I am following my dream of getting this book read, taking a deep breath and trying again.  The book is selling, but of course, not as well as I would like it to sell.  I have asked my family and friends NOT to post reviews, until I can see what strangers have to say and so far I have not been disappointed.  I do, however, wish to produce a quality product and feel that I can do much better on the cover image so that is what I am focused on today.  I am also launching a paperback print on demand version that will be coming soon and I am very excited about that.  While I feel that ebooks are the wave of the future, there are so many that I want to reach that are not as technologically prepared.

Again, I offer warmest appreciation for your kindness.
