This month’s book deals (June 2017)

June 13, 2017 in Other Stuff

Deals run from June 12th through June 18th

This month we’re highlighting two more titles from my library. The first of these is Sojourns Through Troubled Worlds, my collection of science fiction short stories. It contains short fiction tales that appeared in magazines and podcasts, such as “Best in Class”, a multiple-award nominee about a little drive through the apocalypse. Check it out and other authors’ titles in this month’s collection of $.99 books:

If you’re looking for more deals, then how about some free fiction? My short tale “The Outlaw Contractions”, a story about aliens interfering with abortions–yes, I go there–is available alongside a bevy of other books in this month’s free book mega promotion:

Finally, I wanted to highlight an excellent site you can use to discover your next favorite author. It’s called The Prolific Reader, and it’s a rapidly-growing repository and blog of books offered for free. I’ll be keeping it on your radar now and then because I think it’s a nice addition to the other kinds of offers we regularly run. This is because The Prolific Reader is not genre-specific, so it’s fantastic if you regularly branch out beyond the science fiction, fantasy and horror offerings you’ll see me mention in other promotions. 

You can access the Prolific Reader website at

That’s all for now. Happy reading!

51xkzlmpkjlLooking for something to hold you over while you wait for the third book in The Tyrant Strategy? Look no further, my friends–I’ve got something perfect to help you through the winter months.

I’m pleased to announce The Newcomer is now available for purchase. Edited by Alasdair Shaw, author of the everything from physics primers to sci-fi novels, The Newcomer is an anthology of twelve science fiction short stories all centered around a common theme: the arrival of someone or something new. Where do I come in? I’ll tell you in a moment, but first, check out the teaser for the antho itself:

From a young couple struggling to look after their baby to a new captain’s reluctance to take command of her ship, and from a sun-addled stranger’s appearance in town to the emergence of a sentient AI, the twelve tales presented here explore the central theme of an arrival by someone or something new.

There’s even an alien puppy.

The Beacon Saga Serial will soon only be available on Kindle

thecompletebeacon_300pxThe Beacon Saga Serial started as a stand-alone tale. I realized the universe deserved more than that, and was just too compelling to leave alone. So, that single story quickly grew into an eight parts, most of which were sequentially longer than those that came before. I then published an Omnibus (that includes bonus content).
