Space Rogues 2: Hot off the …. Presses?

Here it is! To say I’m excited is an understatement! The excitement is compounded by the upcoming wide release of not just Space Rogues 2, but of Space Rogues 1. Space Rogues 1 will be available on all the digital platforms on June 3. Space Rogues 2 will be available June 29! Both books are available for pre-order on all platforms right now! Go get ’em!   I’m really happy with everything about Space Rogues 2: Big Ship, Lots of Guns. The cover is amazing, I think the writing is pretty solid (My editor agrees!) and I think the universe I’m building is taking even more shape. We’re meeting more people and visiting more places, I’m gonna need an atlas soon!   I decided to take my work wide for…

Space Rogues 2 Cover and Title Now Final

Space Rogues 2: Big Ship, Lots of Guns That’s it! That’s the title, and this (Over to the right) is the cover! I’ve been typing (It’s a working title) for so long it’s almost second nature. Gonna take some getting used to not using it now, well for book 2 that is. Book 3 is officially underway so, you know, plenty of fun potential titles to come there. This cover though. An old friend who I used to see all the time via 360|Flex did the artwork. We traded a lot of emails going over my initial “here’s what I’m thinking”. I sent two really crappy doodles (you’ll have to get the book to see them, they’ll be included in the back). One, the one he chose had a scribble, ‘big…

The Strength of Social Proof

The original title of this post was, “Would you like a free copy of Space Rogues 2: I’ll have a Subtitle Soon, Promise (it’s a working title).” Catchier right? It’s also really long! LOL. So back to the title of this post, Social Proof. When you go to Amazon to buy a book, or a humidifier or a file cabinet, you look at reviews right? You look at the overall rating and scan the reviews. If you’re like me you weigh the good reviews with the more critical; you also look for the highest number of reviews. The more reviews you have available to look at the more likely you are to look at, let alone, buy that thing, right? I know that’s how I shop. So here’s the thing, launching…

Andy Weir Does it again. I’m really Enjoying Artemis

I wanted to take a minute to tell you, if you haven’t grabbed a copy of Artemis, Andy Weir’s latest book, do it, right now. I’m a little over halfway through and it’s hard to put it down. It’s a very different book than The Martian, but also very similar. I’m really enjoying it and can’t wait to finish it to find out how it ends, but also kind of dreading it because then it’ll be over. I really dig his choices for the characters, it’s pretty awesome how he’s created a world that’s diverse and interesting. No one feels cardboard or caricature.   Anyhow, short post just to say, Artemis is most definitely worth the money.
