Children of The Forgotten Re-Serialized on Smashwords

As work on The New Empire Book Two is beginning to  ramp up here in Sergiland, I felt it time to re-release the serialized version of Children of The Forgotten on Smashwords to give potential new readers an easy way into The New Empire Trilogy. Combined, all four parts will run you about five US Dollars, which is a good deal for a fairly large book.

As I've stated before, releasing (or re-releasing) a book in this way gives the reader the option of reading a new book without too much risk to their hard-earned coin. If you liked part one, you have the option of going right on to part two, if you liked parts one and two and hated three, you can stop right there with hardly a dent in the checkbook, and more so if you hated part one to begin with.

With that said, I think you, Potential Reader, will enjoy the story within; at least, I certainly hope you will, that is mime and every author's goal after all.

So without further ado, I give you The Children of The Forgotten, again


Part One: The Ascent

The Vrilkist, an advanced alien race bent on galactic conquest and annihilation, has been eating away at the borders of The Imperial Confederation of Ertho—an empire already plagued by rebel and separatists factions—in an ongoing war.
The three front conflict has left the empire short on fighters and material while the Vrilkist, in contrast, appear to have unlimited resources and firepower.


Part Two: The Crucible
For his first tour of duty, newly commissioned ensign, Cornelius Coleman, arrives on Ara to lead a platoon. There he finds life on the rebel planet precarious at best; not only does he need to worry about death by Arian Rebels, but he must also contend with the chaotic native climate and—perhaps more importantly—the risk of getting fragged by his own platoon.

Part Three: The Struggle
The Wolfstar Crew is dead, The Battle of Klandine is lost, and the Empire is reeling from the Vrilkist assault.
Bent on revenge, and infected by a strained addiction to combat, Cornelius is recruited into Spy-1 Special Forces, the SSF. His first mission is to discover where the Vrilkist are originating from. Along with his new team, The Black Lions, he goes deep behind enemy lines.


Part Four: The Fallen 
Thanks to Cornelius and his Black Lions, The Empire is now armed with fresh new intel in which to combat the Vrilkist with, giving renewed hope to the beleaguered imperial forces. 
The timing couldn’t be better, for a massive Vrilkist armada is forming above the outpost world of Bloody Eye.

And for those interested, here is the link for the Kindle and Print versions of the entire book, which contains an expansive glossary in the back, detailing ranks, medals, and other info.

That's it for now...New Empire Book Two is still scheduled to be released in Summer 2016! Check back here for updates, and have an awesome Thanksgiving! Gobble! Gobble!

Hunters Gotta New Name (and updates)

I finished the fourth draft of The Hunters last night. I'd say that the novel as a whole is about 80% done; meaning readable and commercially viable. It ain't perfect yet but in another draft or two it will get there. I've also come up with a title other than The Hunters; from here on out, The Hunters will be officially called Endless Enemy (The Fifth Migration: Book One). I've been throwing around a few names these past weeks but that's the one that seems to resonate with me and the story as a whole. Of course, everything is tentative until final edits and publication is complete, but this is what it will be for the foreseeable future.

If all goes according to plan, I should have Endless Enemy complete by early to mid December, MAYBE earlier, but that's unlikely, given the holidays and things, but it's possible.

So that's exciting. Of course, any potential pub date is still in a galaxy far far  away, but one step at a time, as the process goes.

Next order of news I have to share is that my horror novel Crossroads (Faceless Doll Book One) will be available for pre-order on Jan 15th , with full availability on March 15th. Digital ARCs will be available to reviewers before Jan 15, EMAIL me for details. And speaking of details, I don't have many to share about Crossroads itself just yet, but they will be forthcoming, and certainly before Jan 15th. What I can say is: imagine if Children of The Corn and The Exorcist had a bastard baby and then kicked it out of the house once it was a teenager. That will give you some idea of what Crossroads is about.

And lastly: Book Two of The New Empire Trilogy, aka, the sequel to Children of The Forgotten, will be out in your favorite stores in the Summer of 2016! Again, not a lot of details to share about that just now, and I'm sorry about that, but I wanted to at least give you guys and gals a heads up.

Sooo, that's it for now. My next post will probably be about Endless Enemy being done unless other news comes my way. So that's what I'll be doing. If I don't talk to you beforehand have a happy Thanksgiving everyone! I love you guys!

Vatters In Need of Love



Hi everyone! My book Vatters of Klon is in some serious need of love. The Vatters told me they feel lonely and neglected there at the bottom of the Bestseller's List, so I'm trying to help them out. Please, for them, show them some love and attention; give them a good home, be it a digital one or a one on a shelf, they'll simply be happy to be rescued from their warehouse purgatory. And once you have them home, let them tell you about themselves. They'll speak of anything; they're practically open books. And once they're done, return to the point of purchase and speak of their merits and faults in the form of a review; they will repay you, in turn, with a good story that will stick with you long after the tale is told! Please! Please! I'm begging you! Do it for the Vatters!

Links and blurb below! Plus a link to where you read the Prologue: Under  The False Moon.

From the back cover:

0060706288378—a vatter living within the compound of Klon—has been asking himself a variety of questions of late, such as: what is the true purpose for which vatters exist and, most importantly, why do those whom the guilders and Protectors of Klon call The Renegades wish to invade Klon in order to kill the vatters.

 But ask all he might, no one seemed to have the answers he wanted. When Klon is attacked by The Renegades, 0060706288378 is abducted and brought Outside, where he discovers the answers to his most pressing questions, and finds that he and the other vatters must confront and overthrow The Solord and his forces, else The Sunjack, and all within, will perish. 

 Meanwhile Gorindaad—Emperor in service to the current Solord—and his imperials seek to prevent the vatters from achieving their goal. But The Solord—stricken insane from long centuries of rule—sees enemies in every shadow. Dare he trust his underlings when The Sunjack was drowning in turmoil as it was?

 Under The False Moon scroll down! 

Thanks everyone! You're all awesome and I appreciate you more than you know!
