SPIED FAQs

Here’s the answers to all your questions. 

Q: I saw on the internet this was due out in 2019. What gives?
A: Since publishing my last CYP book, MAROONED, I have: moved to a different country, then across that country to a new state, became a father, became a father again, and been distracted by promised untold Amazon Alexa development money (*shakes fist at sky*). I also wrote a traditional, linear novel that I’m shopping to publishers. That said…more CYP soon!

Q: This is your sixth book, does anyone really ask you these questions anymore?
A: I mean, you’re here on this FAQ page, aren’t you? I guess it depends on your definition of what “frequent” means.

Q: I don’t get it, what’s a gamebook? And how do you click links in a book?
A: Whoa, whoa, whoa, one question at a time. First, in a gamebook you get to decide how the story progresses; it’s a much more active reading experience than a traditional novel. And second, as an ebook, you don’t have to flip around to whatever page to learn your fate–you simply click to it. To learn more about gamebooks, try here.

Q: Is this only available as an ebook? What if I don’t have an ereader?
A: If you’re reading this on a webpage (and odds are no one printed this off for you), you can read SPIED. There are apps you can download to read kindle books on your PC, phone, whatever. BUT! It’s also available as a paperback, so fret not. The technologically-averse can Flip Your Poison.

Q: I found a decision loop!
A: Good for you. Also, that’s not a question. But seriously? I give you the power to explore the multiverse, to leap across parallel universes, and you use it to replay two decisions back-to-back on an endless loop? Real cool…

Q: I want to be like [insert fictional spy here]. Why can’t I play that book?
A: Because I wrote this book. I promise it’s better than knocking off someone else’s spy tropes. Give it a go and you’ll see.

Satisfied? No? I missed one? Fine. Send me your question, and maybe it’ll get answered and/or added to this page.
