[The following entry is part of the Nakba blog tour being organized by Tomorrow Comes Media. For a complete list of stops on the tour, see the tour page. For giveaway entry and rules, see the Rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post.]
Jason S. Walters’ new novel, Nakba (published by Blackwyrm Publishing) hit stores soon, and to celebrate the launch, Blackwyrm is holding an epic giveaway. The contest features a Kindle Fire with 25 ebooks loaded on it, several paperback book bundles, a hell of a lot of paperback copies of Nakba, and even more ebook bundles. But first, a little bit about the bell of the ball, Jason S. Walter’s Nakba.
A thousand years ago humanity’s dissidents fled, leaving behind a peaceful, unified world content to exist in a state of perpetual hedonism. Then a daring escape plunged civilization into chaos, forcing its rulers to expand outward to maintain order. Now all that stands between a newly imperial Earth and the rest of the solar system is a loose coalition of Maasai tribesmen, cloned feminists, shape-shifting humannequins, and vengeful Berbers led by the least likely hero in human history: a young woman with Down syndrome and a bad attitude.
The tour page also has an excerpt from the novel you might find interesting. And then there’s the author himself—which, being the RPG nerd I am, I find very interesting indeed.
Jason S. Walters is an author, essayist, and publisher best known for running Indie Press Revolution (IPR), a distributor of micro-published roleplaying games. He is also one of a small group of investors that purchased Hero Games in 2001, and serves as its general manager. After owning a
San Franciscobike messenger service for 15 years, he and his wife Tina moved to Midian Ranch: a homestead near the town of Gerlach, . It is also the location of IPR’s warehousing complex. They have a daughter with Down syndrome named Cassidy and animals too numerous to mention. Find out more about Jason at on his blog or on facebook. Nevada
