The episode to see me run American Ninja Warrior will air tonight on NBC!  This is a military tribute special, so even if you don’t want to watch me, I guarantee there’s some great people on the show with some amazing stories (really, sometimes talking with people there I felt like a serious underachiever).

The episode should also air on Esquire on July 7th and I have heard that individual runs will be available on the internet some time after that.

Free Short Story: Look To The Stars July 7 & 8

Free for the next two days: Look to the Stars.  This short story is a prequel, of sorts, for my novel The Fallen Race.

This is a short story set in the Shadow Space Universe and tells the story of Mason McGann, a smuggler who lives in the shadows.  Mason finds himself drawn into a dangerous game of politicians and warlords, where one wrong step might spell the end not just for him, but for millions of innocent people.  It is set before the events of The Fallen Race and can be seen as a prologue, of sorts, for the Shadow Space Chronicles.

 

Mason McGann is a smuggler, a liar, and a cheat. With his ship impounded by customs, he figures he has no choice left but to auction off information about the lost Dreyfus Fleet. But things are never what they seem when you hold information that can change the course of history.

Look to the Stars is free on July 7th and 8th, 2015 on Amazon.  Get your copy here.

See Kal Run… American Ninja Warrior!

Yes, you read that headline right… I’ve just come back from the show American Ninja Warrior, specifically the Military Special in San Pedro, California.  While I can’t say anything about how I did, I will say I had an incredible time and if you want to watch me and a ton of other military veterans compete, be sure to watch it later this month!

I’ve been training hard for it over the past few months, so be sure to tune in and watch to see how I did.  While I was there, I met some amazing people with inspirational stories and incredible attitudes.  I’m sure the show will do them all justice.  Be certain to tune in and watch it!  While I don’t have the exact air date, yet, it will probably be Monday the 29th of June.
