Emergence Promotion Dates Set

Emergence-by-CA-KnutsenI have been talking about the need for reviews to set the stage for a promotion of Emergence. Thank you for the reviews!   I have set the dates.  The Emergence eBook will be discounted from $3.99 to $0.99 from August 22 to September 5.

I have made arrangements with 20 services to send out a notice to their email lists on various day during that period.   People on these lists are eager to get free or discounted eBooks.  The combined number on these 20 different lists is several hundred thousand.

Besides sales of Emergence, this process will raise visibility of the Janus Unfolding series and possibly create sales of Factotum and Inheritance.  Also, there may be additional reviews which is always a good thing.  This is my first time through this.  I hope it yields fun results.

“Mimsy Were the Borogoves”

The 1943 science fiction short story Mimsy Were the Borogoves by Lewis Padgett is about a toddler and his infant sibling who do things that are quite unusual.

It is a story I am reminded quote-twas-brillig-and-the-slithy-toves-did-gyre-and-gimble-in-the-wabe-all-mimsy-were-the-borogoves-lewis-carroll-304308of this whenever I see young children playing, unfettered by ‘impossibilities’ that are so obvious to adults.  It’s not so much the specific story line as the concept that there is more to our existence than can be described by our senses and the associated four dimensions.

In my writing, I present characters with something that is ‘impossible’ and then ask them to find out how such a thing could occur.

I’m often surprised by what they come up with.
