'The Digital Now' and 'The Writer's Primer' now available!

I'm very happy to announce the publication of my latest books, the sci-fi thriller 'The Digital Now' and the non-fiction 'The Writer's Primer: A Practical Guide for Aspiring Authors Seeking Publication'. 

Yes, I published two books at once, and although it's been a labor intensive process the last few months, I'm very excited to see two more titles through to publication. For those more familiar with my writing, I'll try to stoke your future interest with a little morsel...while working on 'The Digital Now' and 'The Writer's Primer', I also finished a sequel to 'Oddities & Entities'. Subtitled 'Vessels', it contains a new menu of stories to stretch the limits of imagination. Stay tuned for that later in 2016.

'The Digital Now' is my first published full length novel. From the back cover:

Just another day...
In the dystopian urban grime of The Digital Now, Patrolman Carly Westing is jarred from her rough life to discover her reality is built on lies and veiled secrets. When the authority she once protected turns on her, her life is catapulted into a violent cat and mouse game of shifting perceptions. Will she remain a tool of the forces at work around her, or become their master and change the future?

'The Writer's Primer: A Practical Guide for Aspiring Authors Seeking Publication' is my first foray into non-fiction, and grew from a page on my website to help authors who, like me, may be coming into publication far afield of traditional pathways. From the back cover:

"You know, I have a great idea for a story..."
Rapid changes in the publishing world have opened the doors to many writers who wish to pursue the adventure of publishing. With The Writer's Primer, multi-award winning author Roland Allnach shares his knowledge and experience and offers a cohesive, pragmatic guide to those new to writing and publishing. For both new and experienced writers, The Writer's Primer illustrates the spectrum of possibilities in today's publishing world.

Happy New Year, and happy reading!
