Space Rogues 4 Release Date!

So, I sent out the newsletter, but here’s the super official, 100% public announcement. More official right? shrug. Space Rogues 4: Stay Warm, Don’t Die releases July 26th. I was hoping for sooner, like April, but you know, life, lemons, lemonade all that. I’m actually¬†doing final proofreading now having received the edited copy from my editor, and it’s funny, I finished SR4 moths ago, this is actually the longest gap between finishing the 1st draft and releasing the book. I’d already started to forget things, and in the re-read am laughing to myself as I watch the crew go about this latest adventure.   So, that said, please head over to the store of your choice (They’re all listed here) and pre-order so you can enjoy this latest adventure of…

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…

Taking my Writing Wide (Or, Bye Amazon Kindle Unlimited)

Amazon is Capricious. There’s been a lot of hubbub in the indie author community of late, almost all of it related to Amazon’s treatment of authors. Namely; Review stripping, Kindle Unlimited page reads stripping, account suspensions, and more. All with no recourse for those affected. Any email from Amazon will likely include horrible news, with zero you can do to challenge the outcome. Of course, it’s their right to do as they choose, and really they care about the “customer”, not the supplier. Stripped of page reads because of bots? Too bad for you. Half your reviews removed? That’s too bad. Amazon loves bots and machine learning, except their systems, suck. They can’t identify accounts using bots, only the results of bot usage, so they punish those people. They can’t…

WIP Thursday

It’s been a while since I posted my current WIP (Work In Progress). There’s a reason for that. ‘Space Rogues 2: Big Ship, Lots of Guns’ is now with the editor, YAY! So there hasn’t been a ton of new words put to page. Worry not, I’ve started on ‘Space Rogues 3: Something Something, Space is Dangerous (You know, working title)’ and have a few scenes to share! First though an update on Space Rogues 2, it should be done with the editor May 1. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t anxiously twitching to get my hands on it and start the revisions. My goal is to launch towards the end of May. I want to give some ARC readers a chance to get it read first, post…
