Here’s some new apps for the Kindle!

Fling it! (A Game for Kindle) by Nice Games

Fling it! (A Game for Kindle)‘ by Nice Games is available on the Amazon Kindle site for $0.99. Just click here to download!

Game Description

Fling it! is a great puzzle game. The goal of the game is to remove balls from the board until there is just one left. Balls are removed by flinging them – either horizontally or vertically. You can fling a ball only towards another ball. However, you can’t fling the ball directly off the board or towards a ball right next to it. You must also watch out for walls or one-way signs which block your movement.

The game contains 120 levels – bringing you hours of mind-challenging gameplay. Challenge yourself with Fling it! today and try to solve all the 120 puzzles!

‘5 Questions’ with William Esmont

June 14, 2012 Leave a comment

5 Questions

Today I’m thrilled to welcome indie author William Esmont to the blog as part of the ‘5 Questions’ with authors series!

If you are an author who would like to participate in the series, fill out the questionnaire here! And if you are a reader who wants to suggest an author for the series, just send me an email!

Pressed (The Reluctant Hero Series, Book Two)

Describe your book ‘Pressed (The Reluctant Hero Series, Book Two)‘ in ten words or less

Pressed (The Reluctant Hero, Book Two) is a mad scramble to prevent nuclear disaster.

Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?

I got the idea for my first story (Self Arrest) while snowshoeing in the mountains west of Boulder, Colorado in the dead of winter. A plane flew overhead, lower than I thought was safe, and an idea was born.

Which of your characters is closest to your heart and why?

Chris Thompson, from my second Elements of the Undead story was my favorite to write because he allowed me to indirectly explore my feelings about what happened on 9/11 and the terrible choices people faced on that day. I wrote the first draft in one sitting, and my editor left it mostly intact, which is a reason to celebrate in itself.

Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?

I write software during the day. The high-tech nature of my day job gives me a fair amount of insight into how things really work.

Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about

I’m in the middle of final revisions on the third story in the Elements of the Undead series. It should be out in mid-summer of 2012, and I can’t wait to see what people think of it!

Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!

If you like The Walking Dead, you’ll like my Elements of the Undead series. Maybe.

Thanks again for stopping by, William Esmont! You can learn more about William at his website, Twitter: @WilliamEsmont and Facebook:

Pressed (The Reluctant Hero Series, Book Two) is available on Amazon in Kindle and Paperback formats. Check out William’s Amazon author’s page for his other published books!
