- Write a series with many parts
- Give the first one away on Kindle.
The story opens after the protagonist managed to get back where he belonged, but without his wife and daughter and no one believes he ever went anywhere particularly interesting. The series has the typical alien/future technology character, but it's also a story about what defines family, how we ultimately suffer when we try to use each other, how people cope when they're wildly out of place, how loyalties assumed to rock solid can change over time and how there's a larger purpose than we often see on the surface.
For Kindle users, Bright of the Sky (Book 1 of The Entire and the Rose) is the über sample. It's free. It's also so good you'll pay for the other books in the series, and because you like Kenyon so much, you'll buy an additional book (The Braided World) when you finish book four of the series, Prince of Storm. Maybe compulsive book buying is a character flaw that I should addressed, but you see how my "best selling author" plan could work. Either way, it's a good read, several in fact.
