On March 24, 2015 I got an excited message from a friend:
"Fluency is on BoingBoing!"
What…? I said, and went off to look!
Jennifer Foehner Wells' highly recommended Fluency is a phenomenal story of first contact!
On the same day, a tweet showed up in my mentions from Brianna Wu, an independent video game developer and cofounder of Giant Spacekat. Brianna has a huge Twitter following and that led to lots of new people reading Fluency and lots of Twitter mentions in the following days.
Whew! These were exciting, but the internet wasn't done with me yet…
The 2015 eLit awards, an industry-wide, unaffiliated awards program open to all members of the electronic publishing industry, were announced in April 2015. This global awards program is committed to illuminating and honoring the very best of English language digital publishing entertainment.
Fluency found itself at the top of the heap in that competition, taking the GOLD in the Fantasy/Science fiction category. Yay!
Indie Reader read and reviewed Fluency in January of 2015 and gave it 5 out of 5 stars!
"What might be the most impressive part of FLUENCY is the attention paid to each character, making them not one-note stock characters (there are no Red Shirts here!) but interesting, complicated individuals."
IR Verdict: FLUENCY is a great read for sci-fi fans and general readers alike. A smart concept, natural dialog and great character development make this a page-turner.
The FLUENCY ebook is (currently) exclusive to Amazon <--This link will take you to the Amazon store in YOUR neck of the woods, no matter where in the world you live.). And, as always, FLUENCY is also available in paperback--and can even be ordered from your local bookstore, if you wish.
The audio book version is available in the iTunes store, Audible, and Amazon.
Please consider leaving a review on your favorite online site or Goodreads (or both, if so inclined!) and recommend FLUENCY to friends via social media. It's difficult to make a living at writing. Talking it up is the best way to help out your favorite authors and keep them writing.
