‘Circa Sixty Years Dead’ Now In Paperback!

Well, finally it’s here! “Circa Sixty Years Dead” is now in paperback format. If you’re like me, and prefer to read books in their physical forms instead of on a screen where you can’t even feel the pages that you are reading or where you can’t even put it on your (physical, not virtual) bookshelf to show your guests that you’ve read it, then now you can have the full literary experience of “Circa”. 

To celebrate its print release, I’m offering the paperback edition of my short fiction story at a low price. After all the challenges and frustrations of navigating through self-publishing technology, it feels great to see that your book is available for purchase, let alone that it has been published—self-published at that. So I’m selling the print edition for the low price of $3.89! But this bargain won’t last long, so if you are interested in purchasing a copy or, better yet, several copies then head on over to Amazon now. In fact, as part of this celebration, I’m going to get a little narcissistic and take advantage of my own offer. Yes, I am going to purchase a copy myself!

Okay, part of the reason for doing that is that the Kindle Direct Publishing service does not offer author’s copies at a discount, unlike Create Space (which Amazon also owns) who I had self-published The Fool’sIllusion through a few years ago. If they did, then I’d probably only have to pay the same price as I would the e-book version which is 99 cents. So, we can take advantage of this offer together then!

If you do purchase and read “Circa”, please leave a review saying what you liked or didn’t like about it. Those reviews help us authors learn what we can do better in our next work to please you the readers and make our stories worth your time and money. If you are just tuning in for the first time here at the Fantastic Site, then take a look at the synopsis below to find out what “Circa Sixty Years Dead” is all about!


A book cover depicting a six-armed goddess statue with a decayed face.
Now Available in Print at Amazon!



Dr. John Jacobs is a young, eccentric archaeologist on an expedition in the Chinese-Indian border region. But then he sees a centuries-old statue of a goddess uncovered by a neighboring expedition. All he wants is to take a picture of it to forever capture its beauty. He could easily do it if it weren’t for those rigid, international regulations—regulations he is willing to go against. But Jacobs will soon find out that his own lust for the colossal artifact will result in a consequence more terrifying than any earthly penalty.

If you like Saturday matinee archaeological adventure or late night horror movies about cursed tombs and the undead, then you will like this tale by Steven Arellano Rose.
