Conscience by Jonathan Pongratz – Preorder Available on Amazon!

Howdy folks, and happy Friday eve!

I have a big announcement to make that I hope you’ll be happy about.

My scifi short story Conscience is now complete and is available for preorder on Amazon for $0.99. The official release date for my short story will be 8/27/2020.

I’m super happy about the release, and in this post I finally get to share the cover and miscellaneous details with you that I’ve been dying to!

This scifi journey actually started about five years ago when I was finding myself on Scribophile. I entered a contest from an AI Scifi prompt and remember feeling so darn inspired, listening to a loop of the Stranger Things theme (hey, it was new at the time!) to keep that fire burning.

When I stumbled across the old version of the story months ago, I still felt that same inspiration. I knew I could truly make this story great, something memorable and fun. And that’s when I couldn’t deny the temptation to breath new life into it!


Alright, enough chit chat. Are you ready for the cover? Okay, 3 … 2… 1!




A good friend of mine Bryan Danaher did the artwork and I’m so lucky that he expressed interest in this project. His artistic ability blew me away!

I also want to thank all the great alpha and beta readers that participated and helped make this story even greater: Marvin, JP, Thea, Gigi, Teri, Tammie, Emerald, Stacy, and Bryan. You guys are amazing!

All right, let’s move on to the blurb!



Rory Bennels lives in a world ruled by a business entity known as the Corporation. For years he’s executed cerebral uploads for the recently deceased, but when the famed anarchist Epher Lore ends up in his lab, a series of events occur that shakes Rory’s world to the core.




That’s a Wrap!

And that, my friends, is my upcoming release of Conscience. Add it to your Goodreads TBR today or even better, purchase it on Amazon. It’s just a buck, and in return you’ll get more fun writing from yours truly!

Please feel free to share this post on your blog or social media. I’d love to get some great word of mouth going on my release.
