The Green Bull redux
Just before Christmas I published a new illustrated novella titled "The Green Bull (a Wandering Koala tale)" and made it exclusive to the Amazon Kindle to take advantage of their lending and free days. I thought it would be a good way to promote my work and get my book in the hands of more readers.
The 90 days are up and I am now publishing it to all formats. I think this will get the story into more hands.
What's it about? Here's a brief description:
Kinghorn never expected to see a murdered co-worker's body tied to the blade of a windmill he helped have built. He is even more shocked to learn his best friend is the prime suspect!
The case appears open and shut on the surface—but dark secrets never stay buried. Can Kinghorn deal with the truth behind the man he worships and the cause he's given everything to support? What price will he pay for his loyalty? And what will it cost the city around him? Can even the intervention of the Wandering Koala solve the riddle of the Green Bull?
The Green Bull is a 17,000-word novella with 20 original illustrations and a new essay.
The title refers to both the idol the cult worships and the fact that the whole green movement is a pile of -- I think you get the idea.
Preserving the environment? Good idea, I'm all for it.
Going Green ie. turning into an irrational madman who sacrifices everything else for measures that don't actually help preserve the environment (CFL bulbs, windmills, cap and trade, electric cars, Al Gore)? Not a good idea. In fact, a very bad idea. But so many people have drunk the Kool-Aid. And they proudly announce the fact to the world.
Read the book. It's an exciting murder mystery with many good messages: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/298256
