    The Usurper by Cliff Ball

      Hi all

      I wanted to introduce my novel Usurper, an action/adventure political thriller, which is $2.99 on Nook. I've had pretty good reviews for it over on the other online store, and has been in the top 100 thrillers over there a few times. It was on the Frugal eReader this week, has been mentioned with other author's on JA Konrath's blog, on Bargain eBooks, been a Kindleboards.com Book of the Day, Spalding's Racket Indie blog, and Kindle Author blog, to name a couple.  If you're looking for something to read, or a gift for Christmas, please check this out.


      What it's about:


      Ever wonder what would happen if our worst fears were realized and we elected someone who was willing to destroy the USA, even if he was destroyed himself? The Usurper is that novel. It is a fictional account of what would happen if the Soviet Union and KGB were given the chance to take down the United States from within. They use the American political system, education system, terrorism, and commit environmental disasters to achieve these goals.

      The Soviet Union and the KGB refuse to let the purging of communists in the United States as awhole by Senator Joe McCarthy, and the House Un-American Activities Committee, deter them. Soviet Premier Khrushchev authorizes the KGB to embark on an ambitious, decades long plan to destroy the United States from within through the corruption of American politicians, the American education system, terrorism, and environmental disasters. Gary Jackson, the main character, is the fulfillment of the KGB plan to destroy the United States from within. They raise him from birth to hate everything about the United States, indoctrinate him, and introduce him to terrorists across the world, where the KGB dictates all terrorist attacks. When Gary is a teenager, he is sent to the United States to assimilate and begin his mission. Nothing will deter his goals of completely and utterly destroying the United States.

      When the Soviet Union dissolves, he is given a choice, and he decides to continue with the mission. A terrorist organization ends up filling in the gap left by the absent KGB, and they, together with Gary, conspire to destroy everyone in the United States who doesn't agree with them.


      I also have Out of Time  which is a time travel novella going for $.99.
