The Transgender Manifesto Kindle Giveaway!

TheTransgenderManifesto_ecoverTo celebrate the release of The Transgender Manifesto, I decided to give the Kindle version away for FREE for the first week so that as many people could read the book as possible. Hardcopies just $11

As you can imagine, this book is my most sentimental release. The transgender identity is still very misunderstood by mainstream society. I wanted to write this book to help shed some light on an important topic and to debunk some of the myths propagated by those with nefarious intentions toward the LGBT community.

Please share the book around to help spread the message if you feel so inclined. I also ask that you leave a review, as this is the quickest and easiest way that books get noticed in a crowded market.

I hope you enjoy The Transgender Manifesto as much as I enjoyed writing it. Life is easier when you’re not carrying a burdensome leviathan around on your back. Repression went out of style with the Puritans. Time to usher in the era of a new America. Thank you.

The Princess and the Clown ARC

Are you a book blogger that loves reviewing new books? ARCs for my seventh novel, The Princess and the Clown from Green Muffin Publishing are now available.

Here is the blurb for the book.ThePrincessandTheClown_BN

Clowning around isn’t all about red noses and rubber chickens… 

For Ralph, birthday parties and frat houses only bring nostalgia

For a better time. A time when the world still cared about the craft.

Living in the past can be tiring with nothing to look forward to.

 

Until Jules…

 

The princess. Struggling to make ends meet, she monetizes her

Best talent. The performance, plus the petticoats, hide her carnal desires. 

 

Ralph’s mind forgets its woes when lust takes over,

Breathing new life into pores caked with white makeup.

 

Time fades away, but the party never needs to end.

One question remains. Can Ralph handle her wild ways?

Please comment or send me an e-mail at asobaw@gmail.com if interested! Thank you.

The Campbells, one of the last surviving families, quickly realize humanity’s hope for survival may come with a price. Accepting a new way of life, acclimating to a new atmosphere, and trying to fight against a universe that seems set on tearing them apart offers many struggles. Can the Campbell’s make it through, together?

Excerpt:

I used to have nightmares about this. I would wake up screaming as they forced me to leave. People giving up; abandoning Mother Earth. The thought alone caused my heart to race, my under arms to sweat.

Here I stand clutching my children, one on each side, as we prepare to be torn away from everything that’s tangible. Before me, a gargantuan structure glares from above. This beast, this ship is supposed to save humanity, or at least what’s left of it.

I’ve lived through mass devastation. It’s hardened me enough. But leaving? It still scares me.

We have no idea what’s out there for us.

My husband has faith in the alien colony that is aiding us. They made contact just in time. Said they had revolutionized their space program and stumbled upon our signal.

I don’t know what I believe.

As the line moves forward, I pull my girls along. They stumble ahead with fright, carrying their backpacks strapped to their bodies. Our packs are the only human luggage allowed on the crowded craft. But that’s not what they’re worried about.

It’s not the new race they fear. Or even the new world. It is the missing presence of their father.

He has his duty. He’ll stay with his men until we pilgrims are secure, then meet up with us in a smaller craft. I’m glad for it. They’ve already had to break up some fights. People get pretty riled up in situations like this. It’s good to have someone who remains behind to keep order for a while, and to try and find any last survivors before leaving.

Finally we’re ascending the dock and I’m able to see our temporary home. It’s nothing like I imagined. The smell is what draws my attention first.

“Eww mommy.” My youngest daughter, Gwen, pinches her nose.

The odiferous enclosure is beyond human comprehension. I’ve smelt plague pits, leaking sewage, the rank smell of sea life left to rot on beaches. Although this isn’t as horrendous, it does make my eyes water. Despite the nausea I’m fighting, I grind my teeth. “Gwen, these people are saving our lives. Don’t insult them.”
