When this blogger received a letter out of the blue from a cli-fi novelist in Canada named Ken Kroes asking for some PR help with his three novels, I read his email with interest, of course:
I really enjoyed going through your website and the many articles on ''cli-fi''. It must be a pile of work to keep up and it looks great!
I am an indie author and have just finished the third novel in my ''Cli-fi'' series Percipience and am wondering if you would be open to recieving a set of these books and pershaps consider posting about them in your blog.
If interested, please let me know and I will send you either an electronic or paperback set of the books.
Thank you for your time.
- Ken Kroes
I REPLIED, IN INTERNET TIME: ''YES, OF COURSE, PLEASE SEND ME SOME INFORMATION!''
Ken wrote back, also in Internet time:
Thank-you for your speedy response!
I have included attachments for all three books to the trilogy. If you have any issues with these PDF files, please let me know. This series is intended for a broad audience with the goal to raise awareness in key areas and hopefully motivate people to take action.
In addition to the fictional story, the primary Cli-fi focus of each book is as follows;
2022 – Complexity of the problems we face and the relatively short time line that we have to come up with solutions.
2222 – Comparison of our society today to a radically different sustainable one. Discussion on usage of natural resources, food, water etc.
2232 – CO2 and climate change along with what I believe to be one of the more important social issues that are impeding our actions today, entitlement.
At the end of each book are a few short appendices that relate topics of the fictional story back to real issues that we face in today’s world.
I hope you enjoy them. Thank-you for your time and consideration. This Canadian indie author really appreciates it.
