Launch Day: Walker

by Michael Langlois

Walker Launch Day

Twenty-four hours ago Daniel Thorsen discovered that he had the power to walk between worlds. 

Twelve hours ago he was contacted by others with the same gift.

Tomorrow he will be running for his life.

What do you say when offered a lifelong position in the most powerful and corrupt secret organization in mankind’s history?

If you want your life to last longer than the job interview, you say yes.

In exchange for wealth, power, and training for his newly discovered powers, all Daniel has to do is help them reach a new, unsuspecting world.

To make things worse, a group of desperate escapees pin their thin hopes on him, willing to risk everything on a miracle that Daniel has no idea how to provide.

Shackled with a restraint bracelet, constant surveillance, and superhuman captors, he must outsmart an overwhelmingly powerful enemy and seek freedom in the one place that is left to him, a new world that only he can reach.


Walker is now available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords!

I’d like to thank the following people for helping me get out a second book this year, which I frankly didn’t think was possible.

Vincent Chong – Artist, genius, and all-around nice guy.  The cover for Walker is simply stunning, and I can’t thank him enough.  Check out his portfolio of amazing work here, and see his notes on this cover here.

Diana Cox – This was my first time to work with Diana, but it won’t be my last.  Walker clocks in at about 90K words, and not only did she handle the job in record time, but her attention to detail bordered on the miraculous.  If you find a mistake in this book, it’s because I failed to follow her advice.  She’s that good.  Of course, that’s not surprising for someone recommended by JA Konrath and Blake Crouch.  Find her here.

Team 52Novels – Once again Tina at 52Novels proves that she can work with anyone, no matter how crazy.  She routinely handles weird formatting requests, inline graphics, and vague rambling from me with grace and aplomb.  Thanks, Tina!  Thanks also to Rob and Amy Siders for their quick responses and professionalism.

Debbie Semple - One of the things I’m happiest about in my books are the hand-crafted graphical touches that Debbie creates for me.  She has a real knack for turning text descriptions into spot-on representations of things that exist only in my imagination.  Don’t let the size of her creations fool you, there’s a ton of work in each one.  You can get in touch with her here.

The Wife – As always, thanks to my wife Susie for patiently putting up with me day in and day out.  Especially the days when nothing seems to be coming out right :)

And, of course, thanks to all of you for your patience and encouragement along the way.  It means more to me that I can say.

Thanks.

    Good stuff. I know what I’m reading tonight!

    Having read Bad Radio, I’ll certainly be picking this one up… and just did.

    $4.99. Okay, I’m not begrudging you the price – indeed, I’ve just paid it – but I’ve read your other story and know I can expect quality. As a humble suggestion, have you considered making this one $2.99. Thereby affording new readers a lower cost into your worlds, and once there they may pick up something else?

    Just an idea. I’m on the road to Amazon myself, and thought that a fair tactic.

    Also, I’ve been looking for a good proofreader, so thanks for making mention of Diana Cox – reasonable rates, as well.

    Awesome stuff, Langlois.

      Thanks, Joe! And Diana really is amazing. I’m having her go back over Bad Radio for me to catch the last couple of errors still lurking.

      For the long-winded answer on the pricing, check out our Reddit thread :)
