Quintessence Release Day

Today is the day!  Quintessence is hitting bookstores and available from Amazon, Audible, Kindle, Nook, Kobo, and all the rest.  I had the great fun of visiting two local bookstores, being treated like a author by the staff, and invited to come back and do readings or signings.  (More news on those when the dates are set.)

The reviews are rolling in, and they look great!  FantasyLiterature gave it four and a half stars and “highly recommended” it.  They also found me for an interview, and asked some very insightful questions that were fun to answer.  They will also be giving a free copy of the book to one lucky reader!



David is a science fiction and fantasy author, which gives him the freedom to explore far beyond the limits of real life and the everyday. His books explores themes that skirt the edges of science and religion, such as human origins, the nature of truth, the certainty of death, and the nature of the soul. He does all his writing at home, where he lives with his wife and seven children. It’s a lively and clamorous place, full of fun, love, and chaos. His latest novel is SUPERPOSITION, a quantum physics murder mystery with the same mind-bending, breathless action as films like INCEPTION and MINORITY REPORT. His other works include the Philip K. Dick Award-winning novel TERMINAL MIND, the historical fantasy QUINTESSENCE (Tor, 2013) and its sequel, QUINTESSENCE SKY.


  • Congratulations, Dave! I will always remember what you taught me in college. That being a Christian is like playing baseball. Your words have always offered me comfort, during some of my toughest times. We should be excited, instead of depressed, when God shows us ways to improve. In the spirit of your baseball analogy,it looks like you hit the ball out of the ballpark on this one!!! Keep inspiring others to always look for ways to improve and enjoy the process.

  • I saw the ‘Big Idea’ for your book listed on John Scalzi’s blog and thought “That looks interesting” so came here to read the excerpt. I finished that and though, “Hmm, I’d like to continue reading this” unfortunately however, after visiting all of the usual subjects listed above it’s not available in my region (Australia) for ebook download.

    As a potential reader I am now left with three equally unappealing options:

    1) Wait some indeterminate amount of time before it’s available in my region.
    2) Forget about this book, and look for something else to read.
    2) Find some other way to download it from the Internet and read it anyway.

    I realise this is not specifically your problem (in that it is not a problem of your creation, though still very much a problem for you in that it affects your bottom line), however, I just wanted to vent my annoyance that in this day and age, it is still not possible to pay someone money to receive a good that they are selling, because of arbitrary and artificial restrictions. I understand the details of this – John Scalzi has written enough about it on his blog everytime he publishes a novel, but it boggles my mind that this problem still hasn’t been solved yet. It’s not like the Internet is some strange new thing.
