Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind IU-137?
IU-137 is a prequel - a short novella, added to Smashwords on July 31st 2015. The synthetic human is really brought to life in Crank Tech One: DESTRUCTION, a full novel. I've made my novella free, so you can get a feel for the robot before reading the main book. Crank Tech One, has been out since 2012 and is a very popular sci-fi adventure. But I've always felt that I should explain where Crank originally came from.

You can read IU-137 and Crank Tech One: DESTRUCTION in any order. And Crank is also on Smashwords.

Deep in the heart of the Lucan Institute is the dormant form of the android: IU-137. The robot is the life's work of Professor Jarrad Shamtack. But...its about to be controlled by an unknown source, and will attack and destroy at will. Can Professor Shamtack and his two henchmen Huey and Bod get his beloved robot back? This is only the beginning! Would love a review!
