March 7th, I’ll launch my latest novel, the prehistoric fiction Survival of the Fittest, Book 1 of the Crossroads trilogy. If you read Born in a Treacherous Time, Survival of the Fittest scopes in on the more advanced humans who shared Lucy’s world but takes place 850,000 years ago:
Five tribes. One leader. A treacherous journey across three continents in search of a new home.
One early review
I had hoped for a few early reviews but they haven’t come through yet–except for this one:
That’s my sis! She is a great writer!
I’d love help launching my book, starting March 7th. Here’s the sign-up link
I’ll send everything you need to share my exciting launch with your readers. To promote you, I’ll post your blog and a link to it in the March 7th post (which will headline my blog for several weeks–your link!) with the Q&A question you’ll answer on the post. Hopefully, these tidbits are scintillating and enigmatic, and will entice people to visit your blog to find out the answer!
Last year, I let you-all pick the question but I found out that some questions had lots of people picking them so readers had already seen the answer and weren’t motivated to visit your site. This year, I’ll assign the question. I have twelve so there won’t be many repeats. If you get a question that simply doesn’t work for you, let me know and I’d be happy to swap it out with a different one.
- Could Xhosa (the main character of Survival of the Fittest) really have traveled with a wolf companion?
- Survival of the Fittest hints at a spiritual side to man. Is that accurate, that long ago?
- What popular books are in the prehistoric fiction genre?
- Most scientists believe Homo erectus couldn’t talk. How did Xhosa and her People communicate?
- What one characteristic would you say allowed Xhosa to survive in a world populated with Sabertooth Cats, violent volcanoes, and predatory species who liked to eat man?
- How do you differentiate Xhosa (this book’s main character) from the human species that probably led to her extinction?
- How did Xhosa tell time and count?
- Did Xhosa have any type of culture—art, music, that sort?
- Why did you write a book in such a tiny niche?
- Is there a goal to writing this story?
- This is part of a series. What’s that about?
- Who would enjoy reading Survival of the Fittest?
