My Debut Novel

#1

Post by Baurice »

The Quantum God is available to buy on Kindle:
https://www.amazon.c...tal-text&sr=1-1
The Quantum God is the story of a man's attempt to make sense of the world and universe around him. Being neurodivergent he is blessed with the skills to help him in his quest but some deficiencies that make it harder. A former teacher describes him as a big, powerful bird who is carrying a heavy weight and sometimes his wings overcome the weight and at other times the weight dominates the wings.
He makes a major life decision at the age of 19 that has consequences that are far-reaching. A major theme of the Quantum God is how a minor change can completely change not just the life of a single person but the whole of humanity. This is known by some people as the "butterfly" effect. That particular theme is based on the concept of my own life where I made the opposite decision that Paul did and I speculate on what might have happened if I had chosen otherwise.
Paul's life, even after this major event has many parallels to my own. Like me, Paul is a writer. Like me, he is also very curious about how the universe works and it is a major life goal for him to "crack it". By a stroke of luck (or is it merely a random factor that has a fortunate outcome?), Paul has help from a paranormal source, unlike myself.
Naturally, luck, karma and the possible influence of some sort of god are major themes. Paul's concept of the Quantum God is a god who is everywhere and everywhen and operates at the minute sub-atomic level. He also questions the difference between people who are merely biologically human and those who are human in a spiritual sense.
Paul is made aware how different possible futures appear and makes major life decisions to pursue the paths he needs to follow. He discovers that he plays a very small but vital role in a project that ultimately saves the human race, but for how much longer?
Parental Guidance: This book contains sexual content and bad language. I would not recommend it to anyone under the legal age of consent for wherever you live.

Baurice, I copied and pasted the link into Google, and I cant find it. I also opened my Amazon app and searched by the title, and it isn't there either.

Could you take a look at that link? I would like to check it out.

Hey, good luck, I dabble as a writer too, under a pseudonym as my stories are over 18 only - just self-published. Writing is fun, but it is hard taskmaster. Well done on getting it on to Kindle!
Cheers,

Tony.

Good luck on selling your book. I just checked it out on Amazon. I used to write sci-fi short stories back in my youth and send them off to the magazines. Usually I'd get the manuscript back with a rejection slip. So yeah, you have to hang in there as a writer.

Now we can self-publish using Amazon, have you thought about going there? Rejections do not necessarily imply that a book is bad.

If you like, I can read them and provide feedback.

I have thought of it . About the most literate thing I have done since was serve as a Contributing editor at Electronic Commerce World a journal which is now defunct. I had a monthly column there. But if I get the urge to write the Great American Novel I realize I could self publish. In the old days I was just sending stuff into the slush pile, so limited chances.

I had similar experiences in the music publishing world. One producer in California ( the other nine we sent the tape to had no interest) said he liked our stuff, but wanted us to sound more like Pearl Jam or Nirvana (the two huge bands at the time). Now, people publish their own music quite often. With good reason I might add.
