Launch Party For Unspent Time by Graham Parke

Unspent Time Launch PartyFrom Graham Parke, the award winning author of No Hope for Gomez!, comes a collection of impossible tales. Permeating the cracks between the past and the present is the realm of Unspent Time; time that was allotted but never spent. This is where we find the stories that could have been true.

Such as the story of little Kiala, whose aunt and caretaker disappears one day, leaving her as the sole Huntress to battle the giant octopi to feed her village. Or the revealing tale of Goki Feng Ho: the ancient Chinese art of decoding the meaning of car license plates. And the heartbreaking story of the man responsible for choosing the colors of the insides of your shoes. As he toils away in obscurity, his work impacts society in ways we’ll never fully comprehend. And let’s not forget the story behind Unspent Time itself, the metaphysical ramifications of which will leave the scientific community feeling mostly indifferent about it for decades to come.

For the launch of the new novel Graham has discounted Unspent Time to $0.99 (PC and eBook) and is giving away some exclusive content, as well as raffling off two Kindles. All entrants will get: an exclusive spin-off novelette, Making of Gomez: behind the scenes eBook, signature for their paperback or kindle edition, chance to win either a Kindle Fire or a Kindle Touch.

Just purchase Unspent Time on Amazon, Smashwords (coupon code ZB77D), or order the book from any bookstore and email your purchase receipt to to enter. Each purchase counts, so stock up on birthday presents (for people you don’t like that much, for instance). The discount ends today, but you can send your receipts in any time until June 1st.

Graham Parke is responsible for a number of technical publications and has recently patented a self-folding map. He has been described as both a humanitarian and a pathological liar. Convincing evidence to support either allegation has yet to be produced. His fiction debut, No Hope for Gomez!, is a classic love story: Boy meets girl. Boy stalks girl. Girl already has a stalker. Boy becomes her stalker-stalker. To learn more about Graham, visit his blog. You can also find Graham on GoodReads and Facebook.
