Khepera Rising in print next month

Well, I suppose I'd better come clean 'cos I've been a tad bit distracted by deadlines. Khepera Rising releases in print next month. Understandably I'm very excited about this because it means I can import copies to sell to my friends who are technological dinosaurs and either can't or won't experience the joys of electronic books.


You're not going to escape this easily. I'm running a competition this month to promote Khepera Rising's print release. Blog about Khepera Rising's print release or share it on some social networking site. Email me the link or screen shot to nerinedorman@gmail.com

The first entry received wins an electronic copy of the novel.

I'm actively seeking submissions for publication through Lyrical Press, Inc.

Who among us hasn’t watched Titanic? Or at least heard about the ill-fated White Star Line passenger liner which sank four days into her maiden voyage on April 15, 1912? Harking back to the romance of a past age, the RMS Titanic was, at the time of her construction, the largest and one of the most luxurious passenger steamships in her time. More than 1 500 people perished when she struck an iceberg and sank—one of the greatest peace-time maritime disasters in history.

This event has been brought to life in film and fiction, a human drama that has captured the imagination of many. Each person aboard that ship had some story. Perhaps a down-at-heel Irish immigrant seeking a better life in America? A rich German countess enjoying a pleasure cruise with her lover? Or, what about an idealistic young steward proud of the start of his career aboard this Olympic-class liner? Whether they survived or perished, each person aboard that ship was part of a story, and we invite you to share your vision. Delight us with your tale of true love triumphing against all odds or share the despair of inescapable horror set against this dramatic backdrop playing out on the frigid Atlantic.
