It’s always fun to make any reading list. It’s double fun when that list is curated by your local library.
So last week was pretty wild. I attended Life, The Universe, and Everything (LTUE), a writer’s symposium based in Provo, UT. Longer discussion coming soon, once I have a chance to collect all my thoughts and note from the weekend. Suffice to say I had a blast, got to see lots of old friends and make new ones, plus network. Highly recommend, especially if it’s a trip that won’t require a hotel stay.
While I was at LTUE, Those In Peril, the alternate history anthology I edited with Chris Kennedy, dropped. To be clear, when I say “dropped,” I’m meaning out the bottom of a B-san on an unsuspecting civilian city. Not only did Peril rocket to the top of the alternate history charts, at one point is was #513 on Amazon’s charts period. As in, there were only 512 books that sold more copies than Those In Peril did on 15 February. I remain totally blown away, and hope everyone reading this decides to go grab a copy.
For all the LTUE folks who were at my panels, feel free to poke around. As I mentioned, I talk about cover art here, also here, and finally here. History-wise, I have entire categories dedicated to air warfare and naval history. Feel free to poke around a little bit, and I’ll probably be putting another short piece together again in the coming weeks. Thanks for stopping by!
Anthology drops on the 15th! Links to follow when they go hot!
Coming on 15 February to an Amazon near you! The anthology includes my new alternative history short story “Fate of the Falklands” along with original short stories by Sarah Hoyt, Kacey Ezell, and William Stroock!
So a while back I did an interview for a local Web TV show. You can see yours truly in all my “Whoa, that was a quick seven minutes…” glory here.
Also, a reminder that I start an audiobook blog tour on Monday. I’ll try to remember to post links here for new and interesting info. 😀
Finally, Aries’ Red Sky is still for sale on Amazon through Saturday for $.99. If you know someone who loves Sci-Fi, feel free to gift them an e-copy.
I got interviewed by Keystroke Medium. It was a blast:
Just a reminder for St. Louis area fans–Anita C. Young and I are tying down a pair of tables at Archon 2018. Come on down if you want to see us!
I’ll be doing a an audiobook blog tour with Audiobookworm from 21-27 October at various review sites for Aries Red Sky. The tour site is here. I’ll let folks know how it goes from a promo perspective.
News Item #1: An Unproven Concept is now on sale. It will also be promoted by Free Kindle Books and Tips (a promotion website that comes highly recommended).
Please go to their FB page and give the promotion post a like to increase its FB reach.
News Item #2: Acts of War and Collisions of the Damned will shortly both be available for circulation with the Mid-Continent Public Library system in Kansas City, Missouri. This should also make them available for inter-library loans elsewhere in the United States.
News Items #3: On 31 January, I successfully defended my dissertation. Barring a few minor edits and rework of the conclusion, the long twilight struggle against academics is now over. Not quite a “Tearing down the Berlin Wall…” moment, but it’s definitely up there!
