Crash (FreeForm, #0)

Science Fiction & Fantasy

The world won’t know what hit it... Tasked to assess a Level III Civilization deep in space, Sluneg is fast-approaching the respective planet—one known only as Earth. When his vessel experiences a grave malfunction, an unlikely assistant may guide him to safety, but, without a quiet landing, the entire mission will be put in jeopardy. Can Crenosian technology live up to its intergalactic renown? B.I.U.F.O.’s secret task force hasn’t missed the object barreling down on them, and, with lack of a better option, recently inducted field agent Pat Vogt is chosen to investigate. Somewhere in the mountains of North Carolina, a seeming aircraft is set for collision, but no one could possibly imagine the repercussions of its cargo. Aboard, a dark cocoon is pulsing. Now, it’s a race against time. In this pithy prequel to The FreeForm Series, Sci-Fi guru O.J. Bradford starts things off with a bang. Reinventing the novelette en route, Crash will captivate new readers and long-standing fans alike. Seeking a shortcut to serious fun? Your wormhole lies within. Orrin Jason Bradford’s style has been compared to the “early works of Dean Koontz and the late great Michael Crichton.” Freeform: Crash is the prequel everyone has been waiting for in the action-packed, sci-fi Freeform series.

Spring and Hope in the Air

Even though spring comes a little later here in the North Carolina mountains than the rest of the state, signs are popping up. And with spring comes a renewed sense of possibilities, at least for me. That's one of the reason I chose this time of the year to relaunch the FreeForm series with new covers, adjusted titles, and a brand new prequel, FreeForm: Crash. Today's Book Bubble has additional content to whet your appetite. You can learn all about this relaunch project on my blog at www.wbradfordswift.com/blog where you can also download your free copy of Crash. Maybe download it to your Kindle so you can read it outside as Spring comes to your area.

Crash: the long-awaited prequel.

I've devoted years to writing the six books that make up the FreeForm series. During much of that time, I've had a recurring thought. "How did Sluneg, the alien, arrive on Earth in the first place?" I finally decided to answer that question. When I say, Crash is the 'long-awaited prequel' I mostly mean I've been waiting a long time to write it. I suspect and hope that fans of the FreeForm series (which will soon be relaunched under that new series title) may have wondered that same thing that led me to writing Crash. By the way, Crash is currently available for FREE on my website at http://www.wbradfordswift.com and also on Amazon.

Beginnings (FreeForm, #1)

Science Fiction & Fantasy

An unseen invasion: the ultimate threat... When a mysterious spacecraft is uncovered in the North Carolina mountains, agent Pat Vogt’s life begins to look increasingly alien. Betrayed by her own government, she’s forced to unravel a conspiracy that holds implications for existence on Earth...and beyond. Years later, Vogt returns to find the mountain town of Waynesboro fostering secrets much darker than she’d ever imagined. Even her closest ally, Dr. Allen Pritchard, withholds crucial information, and his desire to mend a painful past may jeopardize the human race. Who is genetic engineer Fredic Homlin, and what connection does the Biogentrix Corporation’s chilling technology touted as the ‘play dough of life’ represent? Can one headstrong woman reveal the truth in time, or will something else be sown? Beginnings is the shifting shape of much that lies ahead... Orrin Jason Bradford’s style has been compared to the “early works of Dean Koontz and the late great Michael Crichton.” Freeform: Beginnings is the first novel in the action-packed, sci-fi Freeform series. If you’re a fan of fast-paced sci-fi novels with exciting storylines and unforgettable characters, get your hands on this thriller by Orrin Jason Bradford!

It's All about Love

Love of a boy for his dog, a dog for his boy, and their love for all animals. Dominion Over All has a special place in my heart. Not only is it my wife's favorite book by me (and she has excellent taste when it comes to books and authors), it's also one of my purest books of 'visionary fiction.' What is 'visionary fiction?" It's stories that first and foremost entertain while also inspiring readers while generating insights, and possibility for them. Dominion Over All does all that and more. It's a perfect read for Valentine's Day, or any other day for that matter.

Fantastic Fables of Foster Flat Volume Two (Fantastic Fables Series, #2)

Science Fiction & Fantasy

Enter into Orrin Jason Bradford's imagination with these brilliant short stories. Fantastic Fables of Foster Flat returns to the mysterious town of Foster Flat with eight of Bradford's best short stories. While some of the stories are lighthearted and fun, others are hauntingly on the edge of horror. There is a curio in these pages for every reader--a burned-out writer waiting for her muse to strike, a curious museum of masks where things are not as they seem and a Chinese restauranteur with a head-scratching dilemma are just a few of what you're going to discover in this collection.

#ReaderLove - I Love Immersion Reading

...And I think you will too if you give it a chance. Not sure what 'Immersion Reading' is? Simple. According to Audible, it's the ability to "read a Kindle eBook and listen to its professionally narrated Audible companion Audiobook – all at the same time. Not only that, but you get the benefit of real-time highlighting." Not only does it increase comprehension and overall retention of content, it's FUN! You can really get into a story. Take for example, my Mask Museum story. Imagine having a professional narrator reading the story to you as you read along. But why imagine it. Head on over to Amazon and try it out for yourself. Let me know what you think of this immersive experience over on my blog at www.wbradfordswift.com/blog where I share a lot more about the joys of Immersion Reading.

Meet Mimi...

...and the other residents of Foster Flat whose stories are chronicled in the second volume of Fantastic Fables of Foster Flat. Mimi is one of my favorite characters which is probably why she not only shares the story from her hometown of Foster Flat but also shows up in the later books of the FreeForm SF thriller series which is due for a major relaunch in February. After all, she's the best friend of Kendra who was the babysitter of TJ/Todd who is a major player of the FreeForm series. The connections go on from there.

3 Loves Come Together

My most recent book, Fantastic Fables of Foster Flat, Volume 2 is filled with love: my love of the North Carolina mountains where the mystical and mysterious (and fictional) town of Foster Flat can be found, also my love for the stories of Ray Bradbury, and last but not least, my love for the old TV series, The Twilight Zone. Both short story anthologies are my homage to these two great sources of imaginative stories, and my home base NC mountains just seemed to be a natural setting. I hope you enjoy this excerpt, Bearfooting, from volume two. By the way, the inspiration for this particular story is an annual event that takes place in Hendersonville NC where each year dozens of bears magically appear on Main St, decorated by many of the local businesses. These life-size bears are eventually sold to raise money for local charities.
