Mikals Publishing announced today that their first release, "A Chip in Time," by JK Mikals reached an Amazon Kindle Store sales rank well into the top 1000 books sold for the Kindle, making it officially a Best-Seller.
"This is a genuine triumph for a first book of this type," said JK Mikals, author of 'A Chip in Time.' " Because it is so very cross-genre I wasn't sure how it would be received by readers. I'm thrilled that so many people like it."
A romping Sci Fi/Urban Fantasy/Romance satire, the plot centers around naive, recently divorced Cybele, who, when a Time Warp interferes with the Goddess of Time is snatched into the Akashic Records and ordered to perform a "do-over" while filming her efforts. She is to give the head fertility god an attitude adjustment, fix the time warp and save the world.
Readers have said the book "explores the profundities and absurdities of love, time, technology, and culture, but Mikals never pontificates, and she never loses the plot." Other comments include "this book is written for an adult, female audience. To my utter surprise, I found it a real page-turner. And I am male." "Mikals' approach to social satire is playful and amusing, and I found her brand names particularly funny. " And "don't be surprised if you feel a tad giddy afterward."
"A Chip in Time" by JK Mikals is available in Kindle Format on Amazon.com and in other ebook formats on Smashwords.com.
About JK Mikals. Mikals first published at the age of 14, when her brother purloined a school assignment, sent it to the Readers Digest, and kept the resulting check. When Mikals learned of this some 30 years later, she told him he might as well keep the check. Currently exploring her mind and the tropics with her fierce, 6 inch, Aztec companion, Xochitl, Mikals is known primarily for vocabulary, an enlightened point of view and an unusual sense of humor.
