Scott Nicholson is giving away 25 copies of AFTER: THE SHOCK

It is no secret I am a Scott Nicholson fan. He writes children's books, young adult, graphic novels, horror, suspense thrillers and the occasional teacher's note. He is an excellent writer. I have never been disappointed by anything he has written... well, there was that limerick on the bathroom wall... 

The second book in his After trilogy The Shock just released. I was so engrossed in the action that my eyes started to burn because I hadn't blinked! I reviewed the first book After: The Shock (here) and gave it 4 Sheep. Book 2 The Shock gets 5 "I forgot to blink" Sheep. A formal review will be coming soon. 

Point is... Scott is gifting a free copy of After: The Shock through amazon to the first 25 people that leave their email in the comments. If you aren't one of the first 25 don't worry. You can buy it for only $.99 right now!

A massive solar storm kills billions and wipes out the technological infrastructure, and the few survivors learn that some among them have...changed.

(Book #2 in the After series)

It's six weeks after the shock.

The smoke on the horizon has diminished, and Rachel Wheeler and her two traveling companions head toward the mountains where Rachel's grandfather Franklin has built a survivalist compound.

However, the strange mutated people known as Zapheads seem to be changing from bloodthirsty killers into a force far more menacing. A secret military installation holds the key to rebuilding civilization, but Franklin doesn't trust their intentions.

A massive solar storm erases the world's technological infrastructure and kills billions. While the remaining humans are struggling to adapt and survive, they notice that some among them are...changed.

The many faces of Scott
Scott Nicholson
Author Scott Nicholson has written 15 thrillers, 60 short stories, four comics series, and six screenplays. He lives in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, where he tends an organic garden, successfully eludes stalkers, and generally lives the dream.

Nicholson has written hundreds of songs and poems and was a musician in a former life. a newspaper reporter, he won three North Carolina Press Association awards. He's had the usual collection of odd jobs: dishwasher, carpenter, painter, paranormal investigator, baseball card dealer, and radio announcer. Now he haphazardly trades words for magic beans and uses "haphazardly" as often as possible while decrying the overuse of adverbs.

Entering the digital era with a vengeance, Nicholson is releasing orginal titles and collections while conspiring to release interactive books in the near future, building audio files, video, and collaborative fiction projects. He also launched eBookSwag to embrace the future of free ebooks.

Nicholson won the grand prize in the international Writers of the Future contest in 1999. That same year, he was first runner-up for the Darrell Award. He studied Creative Writing at Appalachian State University and UNC-Chapel Hill. He has been an officer of Mystery Writers of America and Horror Writers Association and is a member of International Thriller Writers and inaugural member of the Killer Thriller Band.

Unfortunately, they never taught him to write: he had 105 rejections before his first story sale and over 400 before he sold a novel. He hasn't learned much from his mistakes but thinks he'll probably improve with practice. If nothing else, he's become a better liar.

His website features author interviews, articles, and fiction excerpts. Bad relationship advice. Humor. Gardening tips. Subliminal tricks to sell his books. That sort of thing.

This giveaway will end once we reach 25 or March 28th. This is a great chance to try a Scott Nicholson at his best.
Just leave your email where Scott can gift it to you through amazon.
