David Bowie  and his early work have a huge effect on my music tastes. As an hommage, each chapter of Sol Sunburst has been inspired by one of his song between 1969 and 1974.

One chapter, one song. Here is chapter 15: Roll ‘n’ Roll Suicide

2169. War, climate change and animal extinctions will soon overwhelm an Earth ravaged by human greed and neglect. In a last desperate attempt to save endangered species from extinction, humans combine animal genes with human DNA to create animoids – a half-human, half-animal breed.

While the rest of the world is pinning its hopes on Major Tom and his colonisation of Mars, the Diamond Dogs – an animoid eco-terrorist group – is busy trying to save the planet from imminent destruction.

Meanwhile, Sol Sunburst, a rock star whose prophetic songs and charm have turned him into a new messiah, is predicting an Apocalypse in five years. But this is all too soon for Angela, a Diamond Dogs rookie who is on a mission to transform this condemned world…

You can now purchase Sol Sunburst on Amazon (.mobi) or on Kobo (.epub)!

Let me remind you the 10 reasons you might like my novel. And for those who better like reading a piece first, the chapter 2 is available for free.

Let me also remind that Sol Sunburst actively supports the WWF.

I’d like to thank everyone who has supported me along the months (years) that led to this day. My thanks also go to the future buyers of Sol Sunburst. Don’t hesitate to share your comments afterwards.

Happy reading!

As you might know, Sol Sunburst will be hitting the major digital platforms next Tuesday.

Being an indie author implies that you do most the marketing stuff by yourself, hoping that, somehow, you’ll grab a reader at the corner of a post, on the edge of a wittyful tweet or thanks to beautiful pictures of your ebook cover.

One of the most common things to share the love around you upcoming novel is to provide a free sample. Some piece of your text that would give a peak of what to expect. So I choose to diffuse the chapter 2 of my novel.

‘Why 2? Why not 1?’ would you ask. Mainly because this chapter 2 is actually the first one I wrote, the one that introduces the main character Angela, as well as Sol Sunburst and the actual state of the Earth in 2169. In other words, the best entry point for anyone who doesn’t know about Sol Sunburst but wishes to discover it.

Let me remind that this chapter is very loosely inspired by the song ‘Five Years’ by David Bowie.

So don’t forget, Sol Sunburst in out on May 6th! Until then, enjoy this Chapter 2!
