Nomad is BACK

Nomad by Robert Swartwood - Ebook Small.jpg

A couple years ago I was driving home when I got a call on my cell phone. It was Blake Crouch, and he told me about how he was in talks about entering his Wayward Pines series into Kindle Worlds, and would I be interested in writing a story? 

My answer: Hell, yeah! 

The Wayward Pines series have sold millions of copies worldwide and was made into a TV series by Fox, so I'm guessing most people are probably familiar with the storyline. If not, well, I don't want to spoil anything, because it has a really cool twist. 

I ended up writing a novella called Nomad. In terms of publication, I thought I was just going to self-publish it myself through the Kindle Worlds program, but it actually got contracted out by Amazon Publishing, which meant I got a nice advance and they took care of everything on their end. 

However, for whatever reason, Nomad was only available in the US Kindle store for the first year or two, and then I think it was available in the UK Kindle store but I may be wrong. And then, just this past summer, Kindle Worlds closed up shop, and with it my novella disappeared. 

Until now. 

I've been given the green light to go ahead and republish Nomad, except there's a caveat (apparently the only way to appease Fox Studios was to ensure writers who'd written Wayward Pines stories followed very stringent guidelines): 

The ebook can ONLY be made available in the US Kindle store.

And it’s currently in Kindle Unlimited, so if you have a KU subscription, you can read it for FREE.

Otherwise … that’s the only way to read the story, unfortunately.


Nomad Is Here

Today is the release of my novella Nomad. It's part of the Wayward Pines world that Blake Crouch created with his novels Pines and Wayward (and which is being turned into a mini-series for Fox to air this summer). Blake entered the series into the Kindle Worlds program, and he asked me and a few other writers to contribute stories. I'm really proud of the novella, and I hope everyone likes reading it as much as I liked writing it. Because Nomad is part of the Kindle Worlds program, it's only available on Kindle (US right now, though they should be expanding into the UK soon). If you don't have a Kindle, that's no problem -- there are a ton of free apps that you can read Nomad on practically any device. You can also mark it as to-read on Goodreads. Enjoy!
