Baron Lucius Giovanni has done the impossible: not only has he held the alien Chxor at bay, he has taken the fight to them and liberated human worlds. Yet humanity’s implacable foe has drawn a line in the sand. They will hold Nova Roma at all costs…or see it a scorched ruin.
Lucius must aid Nova Roma’s Emperor and liberate his homeworld, but along the way he must also deal with old and new adversaries and with a conspiracy that seeks to usurp control of his fleet.
Like The Shattered Empire, the third book of the series is narrated by the talented Eric Dove. Check out his other stuff, he does a fantastic job.
The Shattered Empire is now available on Amazon and Audible.com and coming soon to iTunes.
This is the second book of the Shadow Space Chronicles, which follows Baron Lucius Giovanni as he sets out to save humanity from the threat of the Chxor Empire
Baron Lucius Giovanni has managed to buy the human race a brief reprieve from the two alien races which seek humanity’s extinction. In the process he has become the leader of a new nation and the commander of a powerful fleet. However, victory comes with consequences. Without an imminent threat, old feuds have sparked back to life and tenuous alliances falter. There are also old enemies who cannot forget that Lucius has what they wanted. He must find a way to hold off scheming rivals, sociopathic psychics, and even former friends. If he can’t do all that and take the fight to humanity’s true enemies, billions may die under alien servitude.
September is here! With it, I’m happy to announce that The Sacred Stars, the fourth book of the Shadow Space Chronicles series is also here! It’ll be available in just two more days. That’s right, exploding space ships in only two more days.
I’m also happy to announce that the audiobook narration for The Shattered Empire is done. I’m doing the review now and I hope to have it approved and available for general purchase through Amazon, Audible, and iTunes sometime in the next couple of weeks.
I’ve begun outlining the third Renegades book and as soon as I finish my current work in progress, I’ll dig into it and hopefully that’ll be ready to publish at the end of October.
My current work in progress is an urban fantasy novel which, once I’ve finished it, I’ll be sending to a publisher. It may be a while before anyone sees it, but it’ll be worth the wait, trust me, it’s tons of fun to write and the responses I’ve had back so far suggest it is even more fun to read.
Lastly, I’m doing a giveaway with this month’s newsletter. Run’s Coffee Mug and a signed copy of The Sacred Stars. Sign up by this weekend and you’ll be eligible.
The audio book for Wrath of the Usurper is now live! It is available on Itunes, Amazon, and Audible.com. Links are below. As with Echo of the High Kings, Eric G. Dove is the narrator. He did a fantastic job once again and if audio books are your thing, then you should check it out!
Civilization is dying. The lands of the Five Duchies are in chaos. They are leaderless and each land stands alone. Besieged by barbarians, savages, fell beasts, and infighting, few doubt that the end times are upon them. Yet all is not lost. In the East, Lady Katarina Emberhill has begun an uprising against the Usurper and those who follow her carry relics from the time of the High Kings. In Boir, Lord Admiral Christoffer Tarken forges alliances and defends his lands. And in the Eastwood, powers that have been silent for eons are stirring and turning their eyes to the outside world. But the key is the Usurper Duke, a man drawn to savagery and battle. His victories in his personal war against the Armen have swelled the ranks of his army. Who will draw the wrath of the Usurper: will he turn it against his own rebellious people or levy his forces against the threats to all civilized men?
In case you missed watching American Ninja Warrior last week, they didn’t show my run. Apparently they don’t show everyone and I didn’t make the cut. I’m a little disappointed, but I still had a ton of fun and want to do it again next year, finances permitting. Hopefully, if that’s the case, I’ll make it on the actual show. Even so, if you watched closely you can spot me in the background of a couple of the runs and my wife as well.
Wrath of the Usurper’s audiobook is in production with the very talented Eric Dove doing the narration. He’s the same narrator from Echo of the High Kings. Having already heard the first section I can’t wait to hear the final product. He should be done with it by the end of the month, and then I just have to review it and hopefully it will be live by mid August.
The Prodigal Emperor is almost done. I’ve had a couple things slow me down in my writing (life is like that), but I feel that the third and final book of the trilogy will close this story arc out well… and leave me with plenty of other stories to explore in that universe. I’m tremendously excited to get it done and out and even more excited to hear what my readers have to say after they read it over.
That’s all for now, take care and thanks for reading!
Renegades: Origins is now live as an audiobook on Amazon, Itunes, and Audible.
In times of chaos, there are those who fight for money, for power, or just to survive. In feudal Japan they were ronin. In the US post-Civil War, they were desperadoes or hired guns. In the chaotic times of the collapse of human civilization, they are men, women, and aliens without shelter or succor. When no one else will take a stand, they stand for themselves. They are deserters, murderers, pirates, and worse; they are the Renegades.
Renegades: Origins contains the novellas Deserter’s Redemption, The Gentle One, Declaration, Ghost Story, and A Murder of Crowes. It also contains six short stories: “Research Notes”, “Runner”, “Fool’s Gold”, “System Failure”, “Dishonored”, and “Crossed Stars”.
