A Special Favor On Behalf Of A Fallen Friend

Gibson Michaels was working on his fourth novel, Eerie, on Sept. 7, 2017 when he suffered a fatal heart attack. I had been beta reading it and was excited to see how he was going to wrap it up. Then tragedy struck and my friend was no longer with us.A few weeks later, his family asked if I would consider finishing his final work so it could be published. I said yes instantly and got to work. As you can imagine there were tears when I finished my work and returned the manuscript to his family.

There will be more tears, here and in the homes of his editor, Dawn Greenfield Ireland, who did an amazing job in editing and formatting the book, and his widow and childrens’ homes when the print copies of his book arrive and are placed on their respective shelves.

This will be the very last thing we can do for him – aside from one hell of a campaign I’m planning on mounting for Eerie to be nominated for a 2022 Dragon Award next year – but there is one thing that you could do for my friend.

If sci-fi/fantasy is a genre you enjoy, please consider ordering a copy of Eerie. It is available for pre-order right now:  https://www.amazon.com/Eerie-Gibson-Michaels-ebook/dp/B09C2NMKDP/ as a Kindle book for just $2.99. The print version will go live on Sept. 7, 2021 – the fourth anniversary of his passing – on the same day the Kindle e-book will be downloaded onto your device if you’ve pre-ordered.

Here’s the blurb for the book and thank you for pre-ordering this final work from an author taken from us far too early:

In first century Ireland, the Celts and the Fae fend off an invasion of Roman legionnaires. In the Thirty-third century, a mining colony fights for survival as the world around it shakes and shatters. An ancient species seeks to end its long exile and return home. Three disparate worlds, separated by millions of light years and over three millennia of time, are now on a collision course. Their ultimate fates will be decided on a cold, barren world that is suddenly springing to life… Éerie.
