Pre-orders now available for Human Resources

Pre-orders are now available as part of The Launchpad Competition

My sci-fi novel Human Resources, has been selected by the industry as a finalist in a major manuscript competition — but there is a public support element to getting further.

What do I need? Pre-orders!

That’s right — you can now pre-order my sci-fi novel Human Resources. There are two ways this can lead to me being published:

  1. I attract more pre-orders than the other finalists.
  2. I attract a minimum of 250 pre-orders (regardless of how the rest of the competitors go).

Pre-orders start at just $10 (eBook). If you can afford it, I would be hugely indebted to you — by pre-ordering you may just make my dream a reality.

I have a second ask (I know, I’m greedy).

If you can afford to pre-order my book, ordering early in the campaign is more helpful than ordering later in the campaign. To win this, I’ll need to attract orders from beyond my network. That will be much easier to do if people see a bunch of orders on my project page when they look it up. Getting a stack of early orders will help me build momentum and bring this home.

Please, take the time to check out the novel page — there are excerpts you can read to see if you enjoy my writing.

And please consider putting in an order.

You can also help by spreading the word:

  • Share the novel page on facebook / twitter / etc.
  • Share the novel with friends in real life.
  • Leave a review or recommendation on the Inkshares site.

Thank you for any support you can give, even if you can’t afford to order a copy at the moment.
