Please, before you judge me for this shameless self promotion, read the reviews and make an educated decision whether you'd like to read the book or not.

Why should anyone judge you for shameless self-promotion in the self-promotion section? That's what it's here for!

A little more information on the book would have been good, of course.

I've read The Judas Syndrome. It was one of the first e-books I bought for my Sony. I really enjoyed it, and it's gotten some good reviews.

It's available at the Kobo ebook store for around $1.99, I think.

No Smashwords preview option? How should I decide whether to read the book or not?

I take reviews with a huge grain of salt since, no matter what anyone says to the contrary, I believe there is a market for bad writing.

I'm not saying yours is bad. I'm sure it's wonderful and obviously many people love it. Give us a few paragraphs if you want us to be sure.

One synopsis explains the book like this:
Joel and his friends are on the verge of graduation and excited and optimistic about their futures. But when they return from a camping trip in the remote woodlands to find themselves faced with a post-apocalyptic world, their daily lives acquire burdens and terrors hitherto unexperienced.
The Judas Syndrome is an unforgettable portrait of survival against the odds. Joel, the protagonist, is a teen whose dreams of entering college in the fall have disintegrated with the rest of the civilized world. Experiencing a barrage of sinister premonitions prior to a camping trip, Joel struggles to shrug them off as nothing more than anxiety over the newest cyber-terror, the Grimm Reaper. For months the Reaper has been inundating the airwaves with threats of mass destruction if world governments do not adhere to his plethora of ridiculous demands. Finally, he does more than just threaten.
The deed done, the Reaper’s threats now realized, Joel and his small band of friends find themselves alone in a dying world. Their families are all dead and gone, and Joel’s family home is now their stronghold. Faith and faithlessness are investigated as his ongoing visions prepare Joel for the realization that the worst is far from over. Prisoners to a darkened sky and toxic earth, the group fights to survive. Through battles staged on their hallowed ground, through loss and victory, the group meets the Pilate to their Judas, unwittingly setting in motion- the Judas Syndrome.

Sampling of The Judas Syndrome:

“Is this all of them?” I asked Sonny.
“Every last one of ‘em,” he assured me. I couldn’t help but smile. Then I turned back to Gareth and reclaimed our lives.
“We do not agree to your game plan any longer,” I informed him. “We will not be subjected to your questions and we will not be bullied against our will to join your morally bankrupt bullshit ideal!” My voice raised in pitch as each word drilled into Gareth’s ego.
“We will not harm you, as justified as we may be in doing so. You promised that you would help us protect this house, and you did.” I paused, giving my words time to sink in and make them understand who was in charge now. They were stunned at their loss; frankly, so was I. They’d come with over fifty people comprising their ranks, and now only twenty remained. That was still more than our side had, but they were weaponless and exhausted. “We will let you go, and extend an invitation for any of your people to stay should they wish to. But that doesn’t include you, Gareth. You are not to return to this house: you are not welcome here.”
Gareth listened quietly, even meekly, at first. But when none of his followers accepted my offer to shelter them, his crooked smile returned and the uncertainty disappeared from his eyes.
“I’ll be back,” he warned, ignoring the weapons trained on him. “This hostile action your group has taken will not be forgotten. I have little doubt that there is a sympathizer in your ranks. But you can still be saved from my wrath, Joel. I stand by my decision that you are clean of this sin.” His finger was now in my face. Sonny and Seth approached, guns ready, but I waved them off, knowing that deep inside Gareth was desperate. He was embarrassed to have lost control.
“I made a deal with the devil once, Gareth. I did it to avoid a confrontation and play the odds that we’d all come out of this inquisition of yours unscathed. I see you in a different light now. I see you for what you really are: a small man, an angry man, a man possessed. You wouldn’t have been happy coming here and questioning us without having fabricated something from nothing and sacrificing one of us to satiate your sick sense of self-worth.”
Now my finger pointed sharply at his face. I must have presented a menacing sight. Dried blood caked my face and neck, dirt covered my forearms and knees, and the tear in my pants exposed the old yet newly bloodied wound.
“Shit! I get it, Gareth. These people latched onto you because you promised them something magical. You fed off of their personal tragedies, tragedies we all share, our common leveler. Deep inside you know damn well that most people would love to get the Reaper in a room for five minutes. But when someone crosses you, you declare them a sympathizer and murder them. How many innocents have you murdered? You’re grasping at nothing to have a purpose. Well, I’ll give you a purpose – to stay alive.”
My piece said, I stepped back and pointed at the stairs. The dull, passive eyes of Gareth’s followers were fixed on him, waiting for him to tell them what to do. They acted as if they hadn’t heard a thing I’d said.
Earl added his own parting speech to the group. “A foolish faith in authority is the first enemy of truth.” A quote from Einstein, he later revealed to me. Fitting.

Exclamation Newest offering from 2010's favorite author as voted in View magazine

I have been voted Best Writer/Author for 2010 for The Judas Syndrome in October by View Magazine : A weekly alternative newspaper reaching over 1 million potential voters/viewers. (for more information see below link to book website)

Although I never intended for The Judas Syndrome to be the first of a series, I caved in to reader demand in the spring of 2009 and began working on Rebirth, a continuation of the post-Apocalyptic tale that one Facebook reviewer called “a stark and uncompromising vision of the future of our world.”

Narrated by Joel’s girlfriend Sara, Rebirth is a story of survival, betrayal, and hope. After giving birth to their son, whose evident purpose is to fulfill the destiny that Joel had forsaken, Sara realizes that her home is no longer a haven.

Menaced by a power-obsessed Earl and frightened by the deterioration of a once-tight group of comrades, she flees north- into a nihilistic world inhabited by dangerous nomads, new friends, and old enemies.

Early reviewers have commented that Rebirth, while a sequel, is a powerful story in its own right. With a third book, as of yet untitled, being penned, this will complete the Judas Syndrome trilogy.

The series will chronicle the struggles and sacrifices of two generations of post-Apocalypse survivors, the sins of the father (Joel) fall upon his son and Sara both. The question is- will the legacy he left them ensure their survival or their doom?

Free ebooks for reviews.

Since this is a ebook community, you all must purchase ebooks from Amazon and kobo and barnes and noble all the time. What 'd like to propose is that I will give you a version of my ebooks The Judas Syndrome and Rebirth (book two) in exchange for a review on the amazon /smashwords/kobo etc... websites.
Links can be found here in my signature.
Please respond to me via e-mail at mikepoeltl@hotmail.com and I will happily e-mail you a version of the book(s) for a review.

Both books examine life after a nuclear Apocalypse, following Joel, a teenager caught up in the end times with his friends, while the second continues the struggle with Sara, Joel's girlfriend. A third is currently being penned.

Thanks for your ear(s).

Mike

Have downloaded and added to my collection. Might take a while to get to it, but I'll put it on my reading list for this year.

Ever thought of getting someone to do a better cover? I know covers shouldn't necessarily be important - but at the same time it can catch the eye.

Regards
