    Thunder Wells released by Gryphonwood Press

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by TWErvin2, Dec 12, 2016.

    Hey Folks,

    I've talked about this novel on my journal here off and on for over a year. Thunder Wells is now available (I'd say finally, but you're probably not been anticipating as much as I have).

    Here's the short description (I'll follow with a longer one in a later post):

    No one ever said surviving an alien invasion would be easy.

    Jack Fairbanks made it through the initial wave of attacks, but now the Mawks have seeded the Earth with dozers and crawlers, tracking beasts that crave human flesh and are bent on hunting the remnants of humankind to extinction.

    Joined by Lucia, a hardened urban survivor, Jack finds himself caught up in a secret plan to turn the course of the invasion. Can a college sophomore and a ragtag force of soldiers survive when the Mawks descend from orbit and begin their final assault?

    Here's what one author had to say:
    "Ervin's got another winner with Thunder Wells. I love seeing the effects of an apocalyptic alien invasion through the eyes of ordinary people. Jack and Lucia are fantastic! As soon as I finished, I wanted to start over and read it all again because it's just that awesome." Angie Lofthouse, author of The Glory of the Stars

    Well, Thunder Wells is now available via most outlets in ebook and print!

    I'd love for you to pick up a copy, and then share your thoughts. While I believe my writing continues to improve, there is (and always will be) room for growth.

    Also, Thunder Wells is set up via Amazon, that if you pick up the print edition first, you can obtain the Kindle version for free. It is that way in the US version. The UK and Canada, I am not sure. Amazon Australia doesn't have the print version yet.

    In any case, here's the link again (updated): Where Thunder Wells is Available

    Thanks, antlad :)

    GingerCoffee,
    Thanks for the positive comment. And as for the cannibals, it just seemed like a logical possibility in such dire conditions.

    This sounds like my kind of thing - does it stand alone or would I need to read Relic Tech first ?

    Thunder Wells is a standalone novel. It's not part of a series.
    (Relic Tech and Relic Hunted are part of the Crax War Chronicles, and I am working on Relic Shield now)

    Thanks for asking, big soft moose. :)

    'kay... I didnt get that from your blurb - I kind of thought that because "Jack has made it through the first wave of attacks etc " that there was a prequel dealing with that period

    Not a problem. The action of the story doesn't occur during the initial invasion.

    Great News! Thunder Wells is now available via Audiobook!

    No one ever said surviving an alien invasion would be easy.

    Jack Fairbanks made it through the initial wave of attacks, but now the Mawks have seeded the Earth with dozers and crawlers, tracking beasts that crave human flesh and are bent on hunting the remnants of humankind to extinction.

    Joined by Lucia, a hardened urban survivor, Jack finds himself caught up in a secret plan to turn the course of the invasion. Can a college sophomore and a ragtag force of soldiers survive when the Mawks descend from orbit and begin their final assault?


    Available through Audible, Amazon and iTunes.

    For more information, here's a link to my blog, which includes direct links where Thunder Wells in Audio is available.

    If you do get a copy and listen, I'd hope you'll share your thoughts. :)

    Thunder Wells is now Whispersync available, which means that if you obtain the Kindle version, you can then get the audiobook version through Audible at a steep discount (for roughly 1/3 the regular price).

    If you don't already know, a neat thing about Whispersync is that you're able to seamlessly go from the Kindle ebook to the audiobook and back, and pick up where you left off either reading or listening (if that makes sense).
