Broken Birdie Chirpin is my first novel. It began with a simple concept and blossomed into a character-driven coming of age tale that I am proud of. I hope to recapture that inspiration again someday.

99c Cross Genre Thought Provoking Fiction

Editor’s Note: SIGN CHANGES is an insightful novel about how symbol use makes us human. 

Book Description:  Sign Changes is a novel about how symbol use has made us human, and is set in four different eras of great change in symbol use: that of first speech, the printing press, the computer age, and the coming time of artificial intelligence. 

Readers who enjoy the work of Robert Pirsig, Fredrick Barthelme, and John Sandford will love SIGN CHANGES

Author’s Inspiration:   I have studied symbols and language my entire adult life, and came to believe that it is the different ways we understand and use symbols that helps makes us human. Also, that each great change in symbol use (speech, printing, computer) has brought a corresponding change in the way that we think. Much of modern society is based on our written symbols and the way we use and store them.

Bart Hopkins Jr. 

Basically I became a writer because I have always been fascinated by symbol use and have studied it my entire life. When I want to get away from all that, I find a beach, or a mountain, or go out on the motorcycle. There are times when you don’t want to think much, but just be. In the real world, it has always been about family, though I have never been perfect in that regard. I have been married 38 years to my terrific wife Kat, and have two wonderful grown children, Krystal and Bart.www.barthopkinsjr.com

Exciting Science Fiction Novel Discounted for Kindle

Editor’s Note: FORGING ZERO is a captivating science fiction read unlike any others. 

Book Description: When Earth is discovered and subjugated by a vast alien government, Joe Dobbs is a 14-year-old kid who gets taken by aliens to serve in its alien army. Once he arrives for training, he is given a prophecy by the future-seeing Trith–Joe will be the one to shatter Congress. And the Trith cannot lie.

Author’s Inspiration: Sara drew her inspiration from seeing all the stories out there about humanity beating alien invaders in brave shows of pretty jets and projectile weaponry and thought, “You know, that’s not really very realistic.” So she wrote a book where humans were utterly insignificant in the face of alien numbers and technology. 

From the Book:  The lines into the docking bay were endless. Like cattle going down a slaughter chute, Joe thought, looking over the untold thousands of bald, frightened kids in recruit white. Libby and Scott began to pant under their burdens, sweat trickling down their strained faces. The hall grew cramped and hot from all the bodies packed together, and tempers flared. Up ahead, two girls got into a shoving match, stopping up the meager flow of traffic completely. Eventually the battlemasters broke them up and shoved them back into the stream of kids to get the lines moving again. Following the flow, Joe and his groundmates filed out into an enormous, windowed room resembling an airport terminal. Beyond the windows above him, Joe saw space and moons and… His gut clenched when he realized he was standing on his head, the planet under him. “It’s purple,” Libby whispered. “And it’s big,” Scott said. “That’s bigger than Earth, right Joe?”

This unique science fiction is $3.99 on October 4th
