One has already arrived.

Today, I am pleased to announce that The Secret Beneath The Ice audiobook is now available, completely freely, over at — narrated by yours truly.

Previously only available on Audible, I’ve decided to give away the audiobook I put so many weeks of effort into.

Also, a BIG THANKS to Matt Armstrong from for his advice about where I might best promote this audiobook. His council was most helpful. Thanks for supporting an indie author, Matt!

The Secret Beneath the Ice short story passes 2,000 downloads!

Today, I have an incredible announcement.

I am extremely grateful to announce that my free short story “The Secret Beneath the Ice” has now been downloaded over 2,000 times on the Amazon Kindle store. Two THOUSAND times! To have reached 2,000 of you is a humbling and incredible thought, and I want to thank everyone who took time to leave a review, as well as Amazon for making it possible to reach so many of you in such a short time. In the last few weeks, I was shocked to see that it went to the top 10 list of SF short stories.

What I love about “The Secret Beneath the Ice” is that I was able to make it free to give you a risk-free way to glimpse the breathtaking worlds of Aravinda. And if you like what you read, the short story is the perfect jumping-off point into the full-length novel “The Truth Beyond the Sky”, the first book in the Epic of Aravinda series.

If you haven’t grabbed the free short story yet, what are you waiting for? It continues to average 5 stars on Amazon, and you don’t even need a Kindle to enjoy it. iPhones, iPads, Windows, Mac, and even Androids have free Kindle apps that will let you easily read it.

Thanks again to all who have left reviews or supported me in other ways. Without you, none of this would have ever happened, and I feel so lucky as an author to have such kind fans so early on.

You are true spacefarers, my friends!
