or adventures in self-publishing world.
After a long process of translating and editing, my apocalyptic novella "Human Instincts" is finally available as an eBook on Amazon and Smashwords (see links at the right).
To be honest, I have no idea what I'm doing so I decided to start small and go from there. Amazon has already screwed up the price and listed it as $5.74 instead of $2.99. Until that's fixed, I'm recommending Smashwords.
The synopsis goes something like this:
Dr. Deanna Nichols is a geneticist searching for a cure to save the world. After the war nearly destroyed it by releasing an aggressive virus, it was the vaccine that killed the humanity’s chances for progress and survival. Deanna feels guilty because she has participated in creating the vaccine, and General Mackenzie never lets her forget that.
Their luck changes when they are contacted by the convicts held in a secret military prison hidden in the arctic desert. The C deviance criminals are willing to negotiate and provide unaffected DNA samples in exchange for supplies and a visit paid by the doctor herself. Suddenly there’s hope, so Deanna embarks on a dangerous journey to a grittier reality than she had expected.
Could a woman alone save the world?
Yes, I discovered I'm not good at writing synopses. *shrug*

And since it's time to do some promotion, I have five copies available for review provided you promise to post them on Amazon, Goodreads, Shelfari, Smashwords or your blog. Either comment or e-mail me if you're interested.
Later edit: Website updated to feature the new release.
Later later edit: I figured out what the deal with the Amazon price is: apparently it depends on your location. I still think Smashwords is a better deal.
