Freehold Friday: Happy Holidays and False Prey news…

I want to say Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all my readers–thank you so much for your support and I hope you and yours had a wonderful, safe, and happy Christmas.

2014 is almost in the books but I have one last announcement: False Prey is now in paperback!  That’s right, it’s available on Create Space for now, but in the next 3-5 days, it will be available on Amazon.  When that goes live, I’ll post the link here and announce it formally, but I just wanted to get the word out so y’all could start salivating at the prospect of owning the book in paper form (it’s so old school, it’s awesome).

In other news, for everyone asking about AJE2, I hit the 100,000 word mark Christmas Eve!  I’m well and fully into the second half of the book and things are starting to line up for the big finish.

Freehold Friday: AD now on Google Play Books

At last, Apache Dawn has completed the circuit of the “big boys” (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Apple, Kobo, and now Google–to get book links to the other providers, click here for last weeks post).  That’s right, Googlites, Apache Dawn is now available on the Google Play Store.

Still hammering out AJE2–I’ve slowed down a bit this week thanks to some scenes involving a certain aircraft carrier and…well, lets just say I’ve had to stop and do research a few times to make sure things are as accurate as I can make ’em.  However, thanks to Dragon, I’m still scorching along at nearly a chapter and a half every day.

Of course, Christmas is right around the corner and all those pesky real life obligations tend to get in the way for about a week–I’m kidding, I love visiting with family and friends during the holidays.  I’m actually happy for once that there hasn’t been much snow (to shovel) this year.  That time early in the morning is my most productive and I’d hate to waste an entire chapter on shoveling snow!  This time last year I was lucky to get a chapter a week…it’s really amazing, and best of all, it’s just plain fun to dictate.

Although I keep catching myself wanting to utter, “Tea–Earl Grey.  Hot.”

Freehold Friday: Going Wide

This week I published Apache Dawn with Kobo, Barnes and Noble, The Page Foundry, Scribd, and Apple iTunes.  So if anyone out there doesn’t want to buy through Amazon, now you’ve got options!

I’ve been enjoying Dragon NaturallySpeaking this week, cranking out 2 chapters in AJE2 by Wednesday and I’ll have another finished by tonight!  That’s 3 times the rate I was working at when I was simply typing.  The book is somewhere north of 80,000 words.  Talk about exciting!  I lost a lot of time in November but I’m making up for it now at a faster pace.  I’m still going to shoot for early 2015 but it may be more like February rather than January.  We’ll see how the rest of December goes…I’m planning for 120-150,000 words (yes, AJE was a behemoth at 220,000 words, but it also had some slow parts and extra fat that could have been trimmed.  I know what I’m doing a lot more now…the story is popping, it’s fast paced and it will be faster to write/edit/publish…).

I’m really getting into the current story arc–it’s…well, let’s just say it’s going to be a hell of a ride Erik and the gang.  There’s going to be some major character shakeups, ala George R.R. Martin so prepare yourself.  Get ready for some danger close.

Freehold Friday: False Prey now available!

Ah, another Freehold Friday where I get to announce a new book.  I love it!

False Prey–in case you haven’t heard–is now available for purchase and borrow on Amazon.  Click here to go to my website and read a sample chapter if you’d like!

I’m pretty burned out after updating my website and the last minute rush to get everything correct and uploaded to Amazon, so this will be a quick post.  But I wanted to say thank you to everyone who’s agreed to read and review it, everyone who’s already bought it and every who’s already borrowed it!

THANK YOU!

As a result of your loyalty, False Prey has already broken the Top 100 bestsellers list, coming in at #68 in the Vigilante Justice category (which is weird, cause that’s so not where I placed it when I uploaded it but I’ll take what I can get!)

FP rank 5 Dec 2014

Now I can get back to work on…

If you want to know when my next book is released, sign up for the Freeholder Update, a once-monthly email list that not only provides up to date news but exclusive content!  Just ask anyone who signed up in the last few weeks–they got a free copy of False Prey!

False Prey is published!

I just wanted let y’all know False Prey is published and live on Amazon!

Authors live or die by reviews and I would really appreciate it if a few of you’d rate the new book… If you don’t want to, that’s okay. I’m just happy to write and thrilled someone actually wants to read what I write!!! AJE has been a success because y’all got behind it so quick and the same with Apache Dawn.

THANK YOU!!!!

For you lucky subscribers to the Freeholder Update that got the advance reader copy of False Prey, I mentioned that there would be a link to give it a review, for your convenience.  Now that it’s live on Amazon, I can provide that link!

To review False Prey, just click here.  Amazon will ask for your name and password–just sign in and review away.  Thank you so much!

That said, I think I’ll play a little celebratory Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag (who knew being a pirate was so much fun?) before it’s back to AJE2 full time.  I get to set a new goal now and try to get AJE2 published in the next few months.

I hope you enjoy the new book and thank you again to all my loyal readers!!
