But more on the April Fools For Love contest in a moment….

Final ebook_Alien Contact for Idiots medium

April Fools is a perfect theme for my brand new release, Alien Contact for Idiots. Why? Here’s the opening of the book:

Seattle, Washington. The early hours of April 1, next year.

>>> What’s the book about? So glad you asked.

When American Indians from the future move their entire island nation to our Earth, Ell Harmon makes the first alien contact. The take-charge Seattle biologist has yearned to find intelligent aliens, and her dream comes true when she meets Prince Tro Eaglesbrood.

Ell and Tro are quarantined together, while the fearful world wonders whether the newcomers are friends or foes, neighbors or conquerors. Ell knows Tro is honorable and Kwadrans are peaceful … but how to convince the world?

They broadcast a show, which she flippantly titles Alien Contact for Idiots. Every day, Ell interviews Tro and tries to humanize Kwadrans. The show is wildly popular, and the romance developing on-screen between Ell and Tro reassures the world. If a smart woman like her can fall for a Kwadran, they must not be monsters, right?

But Tro’s duty lies with his people, and soon that duty threatens not only the show but Ell’s heart — as well as the peace and survival of our world.

Sound interesting? You can find out for yourself. The first ten people who request the book, either in the comments of this page or using my contact page, will get a free copy.  (Currently available for Kindle only, sorry.) Can’t beat that price!

  1. Hi Ed, I love humor in SFR stories!

  2. I’d like a copy, if they aren’t all gone! evacaye gmail com

    1. You got it, Eva.

      1. Wooohooo! Let me know if you’d like copies of any of my books. I’ve re-edited them recently as well as given them new covers. 😀

    Sounds like an interesting story line. I would love a copy to try a new author.

    Hi Ed. Love the title and the blurb sounds intriguing. Would love to read it. Do you have copies left?

    1. I’ve extended the offer to run through the end of the month, so I’ll be in touch!

  7. Natives from the future returning to Earth? That’s really different. Except they should have sent a recon crew first. Environmentally, the planet is a tad…changed.

    1. They sent probes to several alternate Earths and, based on air-quality samples, selected one that seemed pristine and unaffected by industrial pollution–a Garden of Eden, so to speak. But when they hopped their 280-mile long island, sheer mass increased the unavoidable uncertainty in the process, and they ended up on the wrong Earth. Ours.

      And for technical reasons, the island’s hop was a one-way trip, so they’re stuck here.

  8. I’ve been enjoying the excerpts from this story that you’ve shared on Weekend Writing Warriors!

    1. Thanks very much,. Veronica!

  9. Gorgeous cover. I always love your stuff and the title is hilarious. I raise my hand for a book, but being blind as a bat, I need a PDF so my robot David can read it to me. That might disqualify me.

    1. A PDF is on its way to you. Thanks for stopping by, Liza!

  10. Fascinating premise, Ed.
