FREE Science Fiction eBook by NB VanYoos

Hello fellow eReaders,

The fourth book in my Onyalum Series is coming out soon, and to celebrate that release I am giving my second book in the series away for free. You can download it out at http://www.nbvanyoos.com/Downloads.aspx. The first book in the series has been available as a free eBook for about a year, so you can check out my series with only an investment of time. Back cover copy:

"Los Angeles drug dealer, Tyler Jensen, continues his quest to find a life within the Universe after his transformation into an ethereal agent of destruction known as an Onyalum. Posing as a lowly priest addicted to narcotics, Tyler becomes embroiled in a battle between an ancient cult and the planet’s dominant religion. As his decadence leads him further astray, his sins transport him into a hell he is unable to comprehend, let alone escape. Will Tyler survive his damnation or will the alien locked inside awaken his lost humanity to save his soul?"

I love book two because there is something for everyone in it, and the dark theme was fun to write. Unleash the inner beast, as it were. I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Cheers!

Downloaded one and two, but it's going to be a long while before I can get to them.

Thank you!

Thank you I always appreciate a "try before you buy" offer, and it does sometimes lead to a buy.
It is a pity there were no cover images included or that there was no direct epub d/l but 10 minutes with Calibre fixed that.

Thanks for taking a chance with your hard work. I was going to purchase the third book but can't seem to find it for my Sony Reader.

At the moment, my eBooks are only published through Kindle and Mobipocket retailers. I am looking into publishing on Zulu Express in the ePub format to provide a broader retail outlet for my work. That format should help expand my sales to other devices that support ePub. It is on my to-do list, and I will post an update when that is available for both book three and book four. Thank you for your interest!

Good news, after researching various online eBook services, I settled on Smashwords. Book three, Red Star Conspiracy, is now available in a variety of DRM free formats at:

http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/10440

You can sample 30% of the book before deciding whether to purchase. They feed a variety of other online eBook retailers, so their service appeared to provide the best exposure.

Enjoy!
