The Lazarus Experiment: An Anniversary Special

The Lazarus Experiment: An Anniversary Special

It was over a year ago in January 2011 that I began serializing my short story The Lazarus Experiment on a weekly basis. Four parts, each around 1,000 words long was my contribution to the #fridayflash and #tuesdayserial community on Twitter. The response was positive with some readers intrigued to ask where exactly the line between fact and fiction was in the story (its stranger than you may think see my article on the research that went in to the story). It gave a great shot of adrenaline to this websites traffic and when I came to complete the serial at the start of February I was enthused to submit it to a few electronic publishers as a collected 5,000 word short story.

A couple of publishers were interested and I’ve been very happy with the support (including in polishing it up in a pre-release edit) and advice that my chosen seattle based publisher Books To Go Now have given me. You can get The Lazarus Experiment from a wide range of websites including the Kindle platform, Nook shop, and even UK stalwart WHSmith. You can download it from the Android marketplace, where its been most popular with people on the go looking for a quick read, or you could even borrow it in American library. The pricing has even been revised to a figure I’m comfortable with (77p in the UK, about the price of a chocolate bar).

Now, a year on from starting that journey with Books to Go Now they have continued to support it by offering it FREE this weekend only on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk. To get it all you need to do is load up your Kindle App (also Free on Phones and computers) type in Christopher Michael Bell or The Lazarus Experiment and download for your reading pleasure.

And should it really be a reading pleasure, please don’t forget to leave a little review on either or both of the Amazon websites… and tell your friends!

The Lazarus Experiment – now an Android App!

The Lazarus Experiment – now an Android App!

Very short update today with news on yet another outlet that you can get my short story ebook “The Lazarus Experiment“. Last week my publisher Books to Go No announced that you can now ask your local library for an ebook loan of The Lazarus Experiment! So if you can do, please run on down and ask them to order it for their collections. It costs you nothing! Its an exciting move that opens up a much larger potential readership.

However, today I can also announce another way that you can read about death row prisoner Frank Swan; just as Ether Books have several of my stories available on iPhone, Books to Go Now have published The Lazarus Experiment as a standalone app on Android operating systems!

That means that any android capable phone can now go into the Android Market

and purchase it to read on the move for as little as 99c (62p UK).

Not a bad week for Frank Swan eh? Do leave a comment or review if you purchase the app!

Read a sample before you buy, click here.
