Top Tip. iPhone as an eReader. Read Great Adventure eBooks.

All over the globe – get my Books on you iPhone or iPad ! Or iPod for that matter. Here’s the direct link to my novels in iTunes.

I have an iPhone myself, and it is a great machine, isn’t it? I like iTunes mostly as a music player. I like its ability to view my music as albums, artists and songs, the searching capabilities are great stuff. The way albums open into color-matched track listings is attractive. And I use the playlist extensively, e.g. I have playlists like “play all music that I love and didn’t skip in the last three years”. These are Smart Playlists, with a breathtaking number of options available for user-created Playlists: it is incredibly powerful – and with thousands of songs, it is a fantastic way to listen to music  that you haven’t listened to for a long time.Things like that make this a great smartphone. I also like the UI of Now Playing. It is easy to add entire albums or individual tracks, and reorder them. iTunes by itself doesn’t offer the greatest user experience, but well – Ok.

iTunes is undervalued as an eBook store.

I do notice that more & more of my fans are reading my eBooks on their iPhone, and the sales of my books on iTunes are booming, but the functionality of iTunes as a bookstore is meager – when compared to the functionality as a music store. Still the biggest advantage is that if you read eBooks on your iPhone, you need just a single device to enjoy both music and reading – at the same time. I read all my newspapers and books on my iPhone, to tell the truth.

Here’s a great review of TWO JOURNEYS in iTunes.

Acclaim for TWO JOURNEYS

 “Move over, Cormac McCarthy, another survivor is traveling the Armageddon road. Clemens P. Suter’s apocalyptic thriller grabs you in the first couple of pages and never lets go. The reader feels real empathy for the main character’s plight as he begins a seemingly impossible 9,000-mile trip to learn his family’s fate. The cause of the calamity is mysterious but clues are uncovered along the way causing tension to build until we reach the shattering climax. Two Journeys is not to be missed.” – G. Dedrick Robinson, author of Blood Scourge

The Naked Truth and the Lie Dressed up as the Truth – a Parable

Here’s a story that I picked up a while ago. It fits well to some of the world news that we are continuously confronted with.

Many, many years ago, the Truth and the Lie went for a walk in the forest. The Truth was slightly nervous, after all, could the Lie be trusted? But the Lie seemed quite happy and exchanged pleasantries as they strolled along. Presently the two came upon a beautiful, silent pond, surrounded by wild trees, and they decided to go for a swim. The Truth undressed and dived into the silent lake, and swam away from the shore. But soon, the Truth noticed that the Lie hadn’t followed; instead, the Lie made off with the Truth’s clothing.

The Truth climbed out of the water and chased the Lie, shouting “Help! Help, hold the thief!” But as always, the Lie was faster, and the Truth couldn’t catch up. The Truth came upon a human and asked: “Have you seen the Lie, that stole my clothing?” The human turned away in disgust and said: “Bah! You are completely naked! Disgusting! Go away, go back to the pond and hide in the water! I don’t want to have anything to do with the Naked Truth.”

And so the Naked Truth had to withdraw into the forest and spent its time submersed in the pond. The Lie on the other hand, roamed the world dressed up as the Truth, receiving considerable respect and love from the human.

Fields of Fire - a great adventure story Fields of Fire

Want to pre-read a section of Fields of Fire?

I bent over Tom and used scissors to remove as much of his trousers as possible. I asked the two men to clean the wound with disinfectant. As they started to wipe away the blood and dirt I looked at the state of the leg. Blood vessels and tissue had been ripped and shredded beyond repair, and what I saw confirmed my belief that there was no other option than amputation. All injured tissue had to be removed while simultaneously sparing as much healthy tissue as possible. Should we amputate beneath or above the knee? I couldn’t recall ever having seen amputees with a part of the lower limb missing. There are two bones in the lower limb, but only one in the upper, and I thought the procedure might be easier and more likely to succeed if done above the knee.

I didn’t mention any of this to the two men. I was playing this game with the skimpiest of knowledge and in the belief that if I didn’t act, this man would die. I pulled up Tom’s eyelid and checked his heartbeat. As far as I could tell, he was sleeping happily. Without too much difficulty, I found the vein in the crook of his elbow and hooked him up to an infusion. Rummaging through the drawers, I collected bottles of medication. I passed them to one of the men outside the door and asked him to find a medical book and check what the substances did. He hurried off.

I had found a rotary reciprocating saw, designed to cut through bones. I had used them in anatomy class—but never on a living human. We were getting closer to the decisive moment. The three of us removed our soiled gloves and cleaned our hands again.

Sooner than expected, the man returned with a book, which he handed to me. He pointed at a text about chloroprocaine, a local anesthetic that apparently also constricted blood vessels and reduced blood loss. He also handed me back two of the bottles that I had given him. My hands were trembling slightly as I pulled the liquid into a hypodermic needle. I ordered the Big Man to pull a tourniquet tightly around the patient’s thigh. I asked the other man to start tracking Tom’s pulse. Deftly, I injected the anesthetic in several spots above Tom’s knee, taking care that the area was disinfected beforehand. I threw the needle in the bin and grabbed a scalpel.

Great thriller – review by Vasee (at Barnes and Noble) 

I started this book thinking it couldn’t possibly work. At least, not at the length it runs. But it truly does.
Though this kind of apocalyptic tale has been tackled plenty of times before, Suter makes it so personal that it’s difficult for a reader to stay at arm’s length. This is despite the main character only ever being referred to as “Alan”. It was exceptionally easy to place myself in the characters’ position. I felt keenly Alan’s waning resolve and his increasingly broadening acceptance of his situation.
I found Suter’s prose worked almost as a setting, too. This is a character with a simple goal and a stripped-bare existence. The prose is utilitarian, and it’s obviously a conscious decision of the author’s to present the story in this manner. On those occasions where utilitarianism gives way to sensation, the impact is enormous because of the intelligent use of contrast.
This is by no means an easy read. But it is difficult to stop once you’ve started.

Extremely engaging, intelligent, entertaining, and well-written […] This is a great book. Comments from the editor of TWO JOURNEYS #iamreading #iamwriting

Part two! These are the comments of the editor of Two Journeys – a great review, you will agree. “I almost wonder whether if in the promotional descriptions you may want to tone down any emphasis on a dystopian or post-apocalyptic society so that you do not alienate (no pun intended) readers who may not normally gravitate toward that genre, only because I truly believe that readers not typically interested in such topics will enjoy your book as much as someone who seeks them out. Your book was extremely engaging, intelligent, entertaining, and well-written. I thoroughly enjoyed editing it […] Overall, the writing was incredibly strong. This is a great book. I rarely cry at the end of books or movies, but I cried when he made it to Hansen’s…”

Sample from Two Journeys

“Our route took us between hundreds of cars parked in the traffic jam. Most of the passengers had turned into skeletons with very little flesh on them. Due to the decaying process, the interiors of the cars were disgustingly dirty, and I realized that I couldn’t use any of them for transport.

Arriving at the head of the traffic jam, I turned around and looked back. For the first time in days, tears ran down my cheeks. Turning around, cursing, barefoot and dressed only in a blanket, I left the scene, almost delirious, hardly able to make a rational decision, just continuing, like an automaton.

The road went up and down slowly, crossing some minor hills. I vaguely remember passing through wooded areas, black birds singing obscenely loud from the branches. The rising sun stayed hidden behind the clouds and doused the landscape into gray depressing light. The road was mostly empty, although some debris had collected here and there: dust and ashes, leaves and dirt.

At some point, my feet started bleeding, but I can’t recall that I noticed any pain.

The road climbed another hill, and I walked towards the top. I was dead tired, so much so that I was actually just shuffling along. The dogs were far ahead of me. The air was cold, and I had to pull the rough blanket closely around my shoulders.

A parked car stood just over the apex of the hill. I looked inside. It was empty. I tried the door. It was open.

I let myself down onto the driver seat. I almost fell asleep as I sat there, but my hand found the keys in the ignition and I started the motor. It kicked into action right away. I stumbled out again and opened the passenger door for the dogs.

The car was of a make that I had never seen. It wasn’t very big, but the tank was half full. I gave it gas and steered it onto the middle of the road.”
