Dawn of Humanity / Laws of Nature / Man vs Nature

Help me launch Laws of Nature

A boy blinded by fire. A woman raised by wolves. An avowed enemy offers help.

In this second of the Dawn of Humanity trilogy, the first trilogy in the Man vs. Nature saga, Lucy and her eclectic group escape the treacherous tribe that has been hunting them and find a safe haven in the famous Wonderwerk caves in South Africa, the oldest known occupation of caves by humans. They don’t have clothing, fire, or weapons, but the caves keep them warm and food is plentiful. But they can’t stay, not with the rest of the tribe enslaved by an enemy. To free them requires not only the prodigious skills of Lucy’s unique group–which includes a proto-wolf and a female raised by the pack–but others who have no reason to assist her and instinct tells Lucy she shouldn’t trust.

If you’d like to know a little more about Laws of Nature, here’s the trailer.

For Indie authors, our most powerful marketing tool is word of mouth. We don’t have a big publisher behind us or an agent that pushes us out to the world. What we have is each other, telling our friends about the latest great book we’ve read.

I need your help

If you’re willing to help me promote my latest book, here’s how it works:

  • You agree to tell your community about Laws of Nature (via a blog post) sometime between July 14th-July 31st (or a custom date that works better for you).
  • I will include a link to your books and blog on the Book Blast post which will headline my blog for about two weeks. I want this to work for your marketing as much as mine!
  • Once you sign up, I’ll send you everything you need–blurbs, marketing pieces, videos, quotes. You use what you want, what suits your blogging style.
  • Just sign up below or on this Google form.

The form gives you options for what type of post you’d like. I can

  1. answer a series of pre-designed questions–you won’t know what they are until you get them
  2. send you one of thirteen seven newly-written articles about writingyou choose but it’s first-come-first-serve. I hope this helps drive traffic to your site.
  3. be interviewed by you

I’ll publish a list of everyone who’s helping me on my blog with links to your post and your latest book. Last year, it looked like this:

Questions? I’m at askatechteacher@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance for signing up!

  1. Congrats on your new book! I’m sorry to admit that I haven’t read your work yet.. I only just came across your ‘Crossroads’ series a few days ago and it sounded so interesting. I can’t wait to read it and this looks like it’s going to be a great read, too!
    Thanks so much for sharing what you do!

  2. Hi Jacqui, I am sure I already filled in this form, but if not let me know and I will do so. You are always welcome at either of my blogs. I can’t believe I don’t know these caves. Ha! I have looked them up and am already planning a visit and a stay at the Kuruman Hotel.

    • Yes, I have you down for July 16th. I’ll send a packet out soon!

      There are a lot of caves inhabited by early man in South Africa but I had to find some with evidence of Homo habilis–Lucy’s kind. Wonderwerk Cave is a National Heritage Site situated between Danielskuil and Kuruman in the Northern Cape Province. There is evidence that Lucy’s kind (Homo habilis) lived there which would make these caves the site of the earliest known cave habitation by Homo habilis.

      Pretty cool, innit? If you go, I’d love pictures you don’t mind me sharing online. That would be very fun.
