Bloomington, IN, December 19, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Bloomington and internet author Duth Olec will release the second novel in the Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos series, Darmenzi, on January 17, 2018. A humorous science fiction/fantasy novel with an unusual hero - Numer, ever nervous and timid, consistently flops his way to victory with his friends by his side. Thrust into a role he’s afraid of, allied with a love he can’t work with, Numer challenges The Conqueror, an intergalactic invader, and Darmenzi, a demon who delights in destruction.
While Darmenzi releases in a month, pre-orders at Apple iBooks, Barnes & Noble and Kobo began Sunday, December 17. The book will be available to purchase and read Wednesday, January 17, including at Smashwords, where it is published. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/769197. Darmenzi is a sequel to the first Cloudy Cuckoo Cosmos book, Slubes, which is also available at Smashwords, normally priced at $1.00 but free for December with code CX69H at https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/323919.
Slube, in fact, is the name of Numer’s species - you won’t find any humans here. The books take place on the planet Mintop, a world not unlike Earth but filled with a wide variety of colorful alien species, with the squishy, noodly, sluggy slubes just one of many. To go with this variety of species comes a wide variety of colorful characters, with their humorous interactions a highlight of the book. If you’re looking for a human, though, you can turn to the creator himself, Duth Olec, though he be more enigmatic than anyone else - just ask the narrator, Wally Plotch, hired by Duth to record these events into a book. If you ever get lost, don’t worry: Wally is right there lost with you.
