Just a heads up today. Sudden Mission ebook is on sale on Amazon this month (November) for $2.99. It is part of a promotion this month from my publisher, Booktrope and Vox Dei Publishing.
My book is not the only one, though. There will be a lot of Booktrope books on sale this month and you can check it out by getting on Runaway Goodness, or on Amazon. The Amazon link shows you all the books Booktrope has on the November promotion.
It’s called “Pre-Funk the Holidays.” The whole list, including Sudden Mission, is listed at this location:

Here is the cover for Sudden Mission! One of my early readers/editors saw this and said, “It’s perfect!” Below is part of the press kit for the book with marketing contact and information about Vox Dei.
About Sudden Mission
Satan, once one of God’s favorites, now His Adversary, grows impatient with the plan and begins to harvest souls. In a fell swoop, he throws reality out of whack and the world into chaos. God calls on Paul and his friends Amy and Joe to set things right. The young teens journey through a messed up world—with a little help from an angel—struggling against everything the Adversary can throw in their path to accomplish their Sudden Mission.
With their world and their parents’ lives hanging in the balance–and the Adversary sending everything from zombies to samurai to stand in their way–Paul will discover if he has the strength and faith to set things right again and stop Satan’s harvest.

ABOUT VOX DEI
Our name rhymes with Fox Day. We’re an imprint of Booktrope, a new type of publishing company founded in 2011 in Seattle, WA that’s pioneering a model called team publishing. Our mission at Vox Dei is to provide books for a primarily Christian audience that edify and entertain, encourage and inspire. While Christian themes are woven throughout our fiction, our purpose is not to preach a sermon but rather provide a quality alternative to the secular market for entertainment. Our non-fiction titles are intended to help readers explore the Bible in a more personal way and grow in their walk with Christ, while being informal in voice and approach. Whether fiction or non, our goal is to shine the light and love that is central to the Christian faith into a dark and messy world. Learn more at voxdeipublishing.com.
We pushed the release date for my book, Sudden Mission, a couple of weeks to August 18. Travel and some other things delayed some work. Still, there will be a cover soon and we’ll have the editing done in a couple of weeks, then the final proofreading starts. The Booktrope Vox Dei team is a wonderful group to work with and the team members are doing a great job. This has been a fantastic experience for me, working with this group. They are dedicated professionals all, and put forward their best work.
I think Booktrope may have hit on a publishing model that will be the standard for publishing in the future.
If you are on Goodreads, Sudden Mission by Guy L. Pace is listed now and you can put it on your “want to read” list. There is no cover art, yet, but there is a little blurb on the Goodreads listing. We’ll post more information there as the book becomes available.
In between edits and rewrites, I’m getting the second novel, Nasty Leftovers ready to offer up to Vox Dei. I’m glad I waited a bit on this, as the edits and rewrites on Sudden Mission impact some of the story on Nasty Leftovers. A lot of the work I’m doing there involves continuity and consistency edits.
Along with the release date, there will be a cover reveal soon–and it is really cool! I also plan to set up a launch party somewhere in the Spokane area. Of course, this will be interesting as the release date is the day before Sasquan (WorldCon 2015) starts in Spokane.
My calendar fills up. I’m retired and I’m busier than when I was working. Bet you haven’t heard that before.
