Have You Ever Wondered What-If?

...I know I have, and the result of my wandering mind is BEYOND PARALLEL: my debut coming of age novel.

In the same mould as Sliding Doors, Uncertainty, and Smoking/No-Smoking, Beyond Parallel flips between two parallel tales. One follows Bella and Clark as a couple, the other as if they never meet.

Friendships, careers, dreams, fantasies...their lives are no different to yours or mine.

Follow their journey over a fast paced, mazy two-years. Highflying careers, book tours, teaching teenagers, hipster warehouses, coffee shop hangouts, a despicable salesman...they're all confronted.

It's incredible how a small, everyday decision can affect how you look, where you live, the people you love, and who you become. We could all live a billion lives, but we're only given one. Is it all a game of chance, or are Bella and Clark meant to be?

Have a wander over and see if BEYOND PARALLEL is your perfect next book:

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) 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 KindleBoards 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.

Launch Day Package
Nice page Matt  = )
Thanks Jim. I hope a few people find Litograph through it. Such a cool company!
Looking for a book for the weekend, well, why not try this what-if tale?

Join the journey and let your mind wander. Happy Friday to you.

Spent a lot of time this week connecting with reviewers and other cool folk. Excited to see a few new people bringing Beyond Parallel into their life.

You could be part of the journey too :)

Hi there!  

I'm a huge sci-fi/fantasy fan (reader and writer). Just joined and wrote a little introduction on the Intro section earlier. As soon as I read that your book dealt with parallel universes I was sold! I also downloaded the companion freebee. Thanks! I look forward to reading the books this weekend!  

Good luck with your books!

My new ebook also deals with parallel universes. Sort of... But it's a comedy.... (dealing multiple personality disorder.) And your stuff seems "straight." So I'm hesitant to recommend it.

Anyway, good luck with your books!

Hi Marty, welcome

Thanks for the interest, although let me tell you my book isn;t sci-fi (not even close). It's a set of parallel tales (like the film Sliding Doors) and is hinged on the philipophical wonder of what-if.

You may still enjoy, I don't know, but I wanted to let you know that it isn't sci-fi.

Your book sounds interesting. Comedy Sci-Fi? Interesting indeed :)
Parallel Universes...

Hi Mathew,

Thanks for the welcome! I watched Sliding Doors and loved it! So I guess there's "Sliders"-type parallel universes stories and "Sliding Doors"-type. Both good to me!

As far my book being "comedy sci-fi" well, yes, I guess that's one thing one could call it, or maybe "surreal fantasy" would be better (still dealing with parallel realities though.) But I'm afraid only folks that "got" Being John Malkovich would probably "get it."

If you're ever in the mood to sit for 20-25 minutes and laugh out loud as well as ponder the "mystery of the self" check out my ebook, Spirit of Comedy by Max McCullan on Amazon.
