THE THREE POISONS by John Molik Giveaway & Excerpt

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. The author will be giving away a $10 Amazon/BN GC to a randomly drawn host.

It's 2025. An evil cabal known as the Horsemen are looking to colonize space with advanced technologies that have been kept hidden from humanity. A dark faction wants to destroy life as we know it. An artificially intelligent computer must learn love to save mankind, but is there enough time?

Read an excerpt:

Aria shrugged. “I don’t know. What is a feeling, General?” She glared at him with the emerald green eyes of nuclear fire. It was if some arcane form of transmission left those glowing orbs and entered deep into the soul of the general.

He shook slightly and had to break eye contact. “Uh, well, I feel…Je*us, what the h*ll did you just do?”

“It wasn’t me.” She stood up and slowly walked over to the general, put both her hands on his shoulders, then spoke to him. “It was Zeus.”

“Zeus?” Saavilieu questioned. “What do you mean?”

She turned to him and did the same thing with her eyes. “Hi, Martin” Her voice sounded slightly phase-shifted. “I want you to know that I love her.”

Everyone in the room became extremely agitated.

About the Author: I grew up in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, and currently reside with my wife in Christchurch, New Zealand. We have two kids, Jared, 20, and Lauren, 18.

My passion for writing began when I was a student at UC Davis and worked as a feature writer for the California Aggie newspaper. Having been nominated for a Brasler Prize (National Scholastic Press Assoc., 1986) for a feature on genetic engineering, I later found the inspiration to write again. In 2013, I began outlining my first thriller, The Fiduciary Delusion, which became the first novel in the Horsemen trilogy. I love to read techno-thrillers, science fiction, and action and suspense novels. Some of my favorite authors include: Philip K. Dick, Kurt Vonnegut, Lawrence Sanders, Robin Cook, and Clive Cussler.

My interests include science, information technology, speculative fiction, existential philosophy, health, and both Western and Eastern holistic medicine. On many occasions, I have also been witnessed strumming guitars, tickling the ivory piano keys, and writing music. In addition, I can be regularly found at the gym lifting weights, or trudging up hills, sea kayaking, and getting out and about enjoying the beautiful, wild outdoors.
