Code Jumper by Zachariah Dracoulis

Happy New Year Serial Readers:

Check out Code Jumper by Zachariah Dracoulis.  In Kindle Unlimted and exceptionally priced at $2.99.

291 pages.   I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

The year is 2036, and half the population of the United States of America is dead.

Re.Generation killed them.

Code Jumpers, skilled hackers who meet strict criteria, are the traffickers of the new world. Guns, drugs, just about anything else you might need or want in the heavily moderated base game world of Re.Generation, the Code Jumpers can get it for you.

As one of the very few people in the US who can dive into Re.Generation without getting stuck, Eddie is one such Code Jumper.

Eddie likes his job, he gets to be a demigod who sells weed and guns to mere mortals every time he goes to work, but following a catastrophic event that affects both the real world and Re.Generation, access to the game is restricted and he becomes locked outside in the dreaded real world.

Fast-forward five years to a world where certain cities are becoming more and more dangerous to live in, and Eddie is forced to go back.

Before he knows it, he’s jumping around Re.Generation and many of its expansions in a last-ditch effort to stop what promises to be Hiroshima compared to what was a slap on the wrist with the last event.

A video game. A terrorist. A hacker and his AI.

What could go wrong?

My Writing Tip: Free Class From The Comfort of Your Home PC

My #1  goal in life is to teach independent authors they are no longer writers: they are publishers.   Long before your book is published on Amazon, or before it goes wide, the focus should be on marketing.  Your job is to figure out a way to push your book into the hands of as many readers as possible.

My theory is that if you’re going to spend money on improving your skill, you should spend it on digital marketing.  So, the next logical question is: how am I suppose to develop and improve my writing skill? 

The answer: free university classes that you can complete in the comfort of your home.  

Coursera and MIT Open Courseware come to mind.   A quick search of these sites leads to over 100 eLearning opportunities.   Taught at some of the world’s leading institutions all for free.  On your time, in front of your PC or tablet.

The benefits outweigh the disadvantages.  Often you can skip around and just watch the videos you need.  Then, on that rare occasion, you need ‘hands-on’ training, then, by all means, spend the money on a writing development class.  But, for the most part, ditch the seminars and spend that money on digital marketing.

Hint: you can also find free online university classes on digital marketing as well.

Check out Richard Hummel New Website: DungeonQuestOnline.com

Here’s a cool author with a cool website.  DungeonQuestOnline.com

He’s writing a #GameLit #Saga and from the look of things I want to read it.

Richard’s blog is filled with information.  A character sheet as well as links to #LitRPG and #GameLit resources.

From reading the stats page of the character, Richard seems to know what he’s doing.

I get excited when writers go to this much trouble to introduce their worlds and characters – and the books is TBD, which makes me even more impressed.
