The One That Got Away – Rising Up the Charts

Hey 3.5 readers.

BQB here.

My FREE promotion for The One That Got Away is ongoing until August 10.

Check out these stats:

Capture

It’s currently #94 in Single Authors Short Stories and #51 in Dystopian Science Fiction (Note these stats are for books that are free in these genres. I’m not number 1 in paid dystopian sci fi. That’s George Orwell. Look out, George. Big Brother and I are comin’ at ya.

Anyway, if you could grab your free copy so it keeps climbing the charts, I’d appreciate. A review would help even more.

Check it out, 3.5:

What’s it about?

It’s basically a case of be careful what you wish for. Evan Brooks spends twenty years on a bar stool, drinking and complaining about Lisa, the fiance who broke up with him. A mysterious stranger gives him a trial run of a version of the world where Lisa stayed.

Unfortunately, Lisa and Evan married…and their son grew up to become the most ruthless dictator the world has ever seen.

Ever feel bad when something didn’t go your way? Maybe…don’t…because the world has a funny way of making the right things happen and when people try to push back against the unseen hand of fate, the results are rarely good.

FREE BOOK – THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

Hey 3.5 readers.

This short story is free for the next few days. I’m proud of it, so I hope you’ll download your FREE copy and let me know what you think. If you want to leave a review on Amazon, even better.

What’s it about?

Once upon a time, Evan Brooks had everything going for him. He was an up and coming lawyer and he had a fiance he adored.

Unfortunately, work got in the way of the relationship. Evan felt torn between his profession and his love. His love, Lisa, felt neglected and ended it. He turned to the bottle, became an alcoholic, and lost everything.

He then spends the next 20 years up until the present day drinking beer at O’Malley’s Pub, crying about how Lisa left him.  One night, the actual O’Malley gets tired of listening to it, so he kicks Evan out.

Evan meets a mysterious stranger named Reuben who offers a trial run of the life Evan would have had if Lisa had stuck with him.

Turns out that Lisa and Evan end up having a son who becomes a cruel, totalitarian dictator, destroying America as we know it and replacing it with a heavily monitored and controlled state with a decimated population.

Evan is faced with the choice of whether or not to stick with this new life, one where the world is destroyed but he personally will get to hold on to the woman he loves, or to return to his bitter and lonely life as a sad old drunk, but at least the world will still be here.

I know the decision sound like a no brainer but if someone offered you a just to get back everything you wanted but lost due to mistakes you wish you had never made, wouldn’t you at least be tempted to take that opportunity, even if the costs to the world were grim? Or would you realize that the greater good outweighs your personal needs?

Anyway, like I said, it is FREE for the next few days, so please check it out and if so inclined, leave a review:
