Cargo 3120 ‘Ties that Bind: Part 2’

EDITOR’S NOTE: What is Cargo 3120? We’ve written about this project many times over the past couple of years, but the best place to go to understand what Aaron Walker Sr. is up to is HERE.

And now that that’s settled:

Whew! It’s been quite a while, but book 2 is finally done! It was a long and hard road that I outlined in our last two blogs. Check them out (read update 1 here and update 2 here).

As I mentioned in the posts above, I had a few setbacks along the road, including many changes that had to be made to get is where we are today. But now I am proud to announce:

Cargo 3120 Ties that Bind Part 2 will release this month on June 17th, 2017
(Pre-orders are available now on Amazon for only .99 cents!)

Part 3 will be released around December of 2017. And if all goes to plan, the fourth and final installment in the Ties that Bind storyline will release in early 2018. Initially the book will be available only on Amazon Kindle. Later, I hope to have the book released on smashwords, which distributes in many formats, including Nook, iBooks, Kobo, and others.

It was never my intent to have such a long delay between books, and we are hard at work behind the scenes to prevent that from happening again. In fact, I have plans to bring on a special guest this fall to help further develop the universe of Cargo 3120! So, stay tuned, the future of Cargo 3120 is indeed a bright one!

Haven’t finished or read book 1? You can now get the full eBook version on Amazon for free! You can also get it on smashwords, or read the full book on our website.

As I mentioned in update 2 on my blog, the reason we didn’t launch in May was because we were still finalizing the cover art. We felt this step was too important to rush, so I made the call to delay the launch until we got it right.

We’ve probably all heard the saying: “You can’t judge a book by its cover…”

And while this certainly should be the case, from my experience, people often do judge a book by its cover. This is especially true in the eBook realm, as people quickly scroll past titles, often stopping on titles with an eye-catching cover.

My first thought was to have something that was jam packed with imagery that I thought highlighted the best of book two. But after many discussions with our talented artist out of Los Angeles: Lee Wherry, we decided to go with a “less is more” approach. We wanted something that was clean and easy on the eyes.

What do you think? Did we succeed?
