THE SUIT – new short story

THE SUIT by David Sloma

Robotic suits that people wear are all the rage and the hottest status symbol. They make life easier for their owners and a lot more fun! The first problem with the suits is that they are very expensive. Oswald “Wally” Manske, a humble mailroom clerk, saved up for most of his life for a suit and now he’s finally got it. He’s looking forward to his new life of popularity and easy times. The second problem with the suits is that they can be hacked and turned against their owners…A short sci-fi story.

EARTH PLAN – my book

My novel EARTH PLAN has been out for a few months now, but I thought it was time to update the cover. That’s it pictured above, for the ebook. I just wanted to show it off!

Grey aliens invade the primordial Earth to genetically alter humans and enslave them. Ships from the Watchers land too, collecting DNA to preserve it from tampering. An energy shield appears around Earth from an unknown force, to quarantine the Grey infection. Eons later, the Earth is a hell. A secret society fights back with the aid of the Watchers, in a universe-spanning battle for life itself.

The original cover was by Tania Marie, and it’s still in place for the paperback for now. Read about that one here: http://www.davidsloma.com/earth-plan-on-pre-order/

What it was like to be a writer before the Internet: Markets

Before the Internet rose to mass use through the 1990’s, just finding a list of places to -maybe- send hard copies of your writing to involved a trip to the library (or the purchase of an expensive directory that listed writing markets), and a lot of time to go through a thick book (or several) and try to find out which publishers to contact. Then, hope they were still in business by the time your material reached them in the mail!

Today, we writers have got it comparatively easy as far as getting our work to readers is concerned. We can self-publish electronically, or submit our writing to publishers for consideration without even having to print out the manuscripts, pay for postage, envelopes, and return postage (and ink for the printer), and then wait a long time for an answer that may not come. Today, things are much faster and easier, and cheaper!

Here’s a video where I talk about it some more and show one of the writing market directories in book form that I used to use:
