Giveaway - very unique sci-fi novel "Feedback" by D L Richardson

There's still plenty of time to enter the giveaway to win one of three ebook copies of my latest novel, Feedback.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Why should you enter? Feedback is one of the most original storylines I've ever dreamt up and had the pleasure to write. My love of this book comes from a fondness I have for early sci-fi flciks such as Logan's Run and Planet of the Apes. From the moment the idea popped into my head, I knew Feedback was going to be a unique storyline.

Is unique hard to sell? Sometimes. Because when an author writes the blurb for the book, they really don't want to give too much away. But to generate interest, they need to tell as much as possible so a reader will be intrigued enough to find out about the book. What does an author do? Give it all away or hope the story and writing is great enough to grab your attention from the first page.

Ethan James, Florida Bowman, and Jake Inala are three teenagers who receive much-needed organ transplants. Two weeks later they are inadvertently recruited by the CIA when a spy dies halfway through his mission. Three bacteria bombs are set to detonate, spreading illness and death across the planet, and now it’s up to Ethan, Florida, and Jake to deactivate them.

Except that they have no idea where the bombs are located.

Kidnapped for information they can't possibly know, and fuelled by the spirit of a dead CIA agent, Ethan, Florida, and Jake must look deep inside themselves if they are to finish the mission and save millions of lives. But they're being held captive in a strange place by a man who believes in Feedback, the theory that information is retained in the memory of organs - in this case those of a certain dead CIA agent donor. And their captor will stop at nothing to get the information retained in their newly transplanted organs.

I guess if I had to pitch this book again I'd still have a hard time defining what it compares to. That's one of the troubles with unique. People want to know what ít's like.

However, don't take my word for it that Feedback is a unique story line. Here's a few snippets from reviewers.

Kaidans Seduction (December 2012)​
​"OH...MY...GOD...THIS BOOK IS EPIC. I have to say that I have never read a book like this before. I fell in love with this book right from the start. The premise of the book and the flow of the book hooks you right from the start. You never know what is going to happen so as you turn each page you are captured by what is happening..." ​Read more​​

Blooding Book Reviews (November 2012)
"...It’s actually a pretty complex story. It’s about these kids who all needed organs. Each kid had their own POV sections so that the reader could get their story. Richardson has a really great feel for when whiney becomes a problem. As I was reading the first character’s story, I was starting to get tired of the kid’s whiney-ness, and then the character said what I was thinking. His story really tugged at my heartstrings. I felt really bad for him, and when he got his Call, I was so super psyched..." Read more

Not into ebooks? That's okay Feedback will be released to print some time in 2013, though I don't as yet have a date. If you're in a hurry to grab the print copy, feel free to email the publisher of the novel, Etopia Press, at

Enjoy your week!

  1. hmn.. I would want to be able to move things with my mind or be able to read minds. Reading minds would be extremely helpful if you were a spy. ;) but moving things with your mind would be awesome, too, because, seriously, who would not want to be able to open the door or turn on a light from their bed or pick another book off the bookshelf once you get finished with the one you have!

    1. Hi Ryan
      I agree, mind powers would be awesome. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!

Latest news! I've signed up to write a post-apoc series

When I started writing, I had one set goal: to become a prolific author. At the time I was into reading Stephen King and Dean Koontz, and I wanted to write books, lots of them.  Now I have that chance. After writing, publishing, and promoting 10 books, I've signed up to to write a series of post-apocalyptic fiction books for  Mission Critical Publishing. The reason I signed up was simple. They're innovative. The publishing industry today is fast and fluid.  I've agreed to write 3 books in 6 months. Each book will be around 60,000 words when completed. I'll need to become a writing machine. To accomplish this I'll need to do  2 things: #1 Write fast The only way for me to write fast is to write an overview of the entire book (or series). This can be one page per book. Then I write dots points that become the chapters. Complications, conflicts, solutions, all fit into these chapters. Then I set a daily word count. I'm

Welcome Latest news!!! What a surprise it was for me to check in on my online retail sites and discover some good news about my debut novel The Bird With The Broken Wing . I regularly do this to make sure links are working and what not. Anyway, I checked in and discovered that my publisher has reduced the ebook price to $2.99 USD.

While working on getting her mortal out of Purgatory she discovers some disturbing news about her presence there." Things about this book you did not know , as told by the author D L Richardson : "This was ori

Science fiction predicts...

It started out as a discussion group on Amazon. "Who likes Apocalyptic fiction and why?" I asked this question and received so many great recommendations for books to read. Why did I ask this question in the first place? Because I'm writing two different sci-fi apocalyptic novels at the moment, and I really wanted to know that I had an audience. A writer's worst nightmare is to write a book that nobody wants to read. Yet, often its a case of nobody being able to find your book in the highway jam that is the internet. THE VIRTUAL WATER COOLER Everyone will tell you that word of mouth is still the best way to sell a book. The industry is clogged with books. Just like the highway, the jam is full of good cars and bad cars, and the online book industry is the same. Asking a question like "Who likes Apocalyptic fiction and why?" on an Amazon discussion group was the best way for me to get a list of books to purchase. This is the word of mouth that advertis
