Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is going awesome. I'm currently sitting on a US Navy aircraft carrier freezing my butt off because the weather in VA is frightful. I wanted to touch base with you today and tell you about a science fiction short story I wrote called SoulMatch. This story is special to me because I dedicated it to a fallen hero and friend who was murdered about a year ago. He spent over twenty years in the Navy as a Seal before retiring and going to the Atlanta SWAT team. The story SoulMatch is about a soldier who is struggling with faith and love while the world he knows is in the midst of civil war. This story represents heroism as well as the struggle with faith when someone you know passes away. This is why I'm asking for your help. SoulMatch is currently free on kindle and in order for the story to reach the maximum amount of readers I need a few things to happen. The first thing is downloads. Every time someone downloads my story it increases my ranking, but rankings fall away within a few hours and are lost. The next best thing is reviews. The more positive reviews I have on a story or book, the more seriously Amazon backs it. The magic number is somewhere around 50 reviews and Amazon will start pushing it a little for me. In order for me to get their help, I first need your help. If you could download this ten page story and post a review you would doing me a huge favor and hopefully the story will also touch your heart. I admit the story is kind of sad, but life has those sad moments from time to time. That's what makes us feel alive. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope your weekend is warmer than mine :)

Welcome to KBoards, Or Welcome Back ;) OR Hi, glad you're still here. :D Congratulations on the book! :)

Much of what follows you should already be aware of, as it was included in the information you agreed to when you signed up. So please consider this to be just a friendly reminder. :) (The posting of this 'welcome letter' doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so we post this note in every thread. :) )

KBoards is a Fan forum for Readers, Writers and Kindle Lovers. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows:

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function or the Kboards bookmark tool available on each thread) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

I have three of my scifi short stories currently free on Kindle.

Military scifi short story
Nate is a test pilot for the United States Army. Actually, he is the best damned test pilot period, even with the headaches. The United States is developing a new kind of piloted war machine with the help of Franklin Industries and they have secured some of the most high tech, abrasive equipment on the planet. Does it work? According to the test pilot, it works like a champ. If that's the case, then why is everything shrouded in mystery at the end of Nate's test flight? Furthermore, why does Nate suffer such horrific migraines? Read here to find out!

Dystopian scifi thriller
It is twenty five hundred years in the future and Serus Blackwell is a policeman. His job, though, is not to uphold the law, but to kill political targets within The Syndicate, the centralized government on Mars. As a member of The Agency he is feared by many, but some targets refuse to go down quietly.

The Policeman:
