GODZILLA – Rage Across Time!

godzilla-time-header

Since I was a kid, I have dreamed up Godzilla stories. Anyone who reads my novels knows that the big G had an influence on my storytelling, resulting in novels like PROJECT NEMESIS (and its sequels), and APOCALYPSE MACHINE, not to mention the upcoming UNITY. godzilla-time-1Over the past few years, I’ve been lucky enough to blaze a trail for a new literary sub-genre, the Kaiju Thriller. Creating and building this new sub-genre led to big sales, and the PROJECT NEMESIS comic book, which is closing in on the amazing sixth and final issue.  With Nemesis, I was fortunate to be teamed up with artist Matt Frank, who helped design Nemesis for the novels, and Bob Eggleton, who created six amazing variant covers. And all this is just the beginning for my own kaiju creations.

Why You Should Review Books You Love

Amazing Book
Reading a novel is, for many (myself included), a personal experience.

We get lost in a story, experience pain, loss, anger and victory along with characters that we (hopefully) come to care about, as though they were real. And when that experience ends, we miss our new friends and want their fictional lives to continue. Like, now. With the characters and plot still fresh in our minds we *might* tell a friend about it. You know the one. That rare breed who reads novels as voraciously as you do. And then…

Nothing.

The subject might come up again six months later, when your reader friend finally gets around to reading the novel, but your excitement is waning because you’re still waiting for a sequel that may or may not be on the way. A year passes. Then two. What is taking the author so frikkin’ long to write the next book?! It was amazing. How could there not already be a sequel?

Eventually you decide to take matters into your own hands and e-mail that author. He/she probably won’t reply (I will), but maybe your e-mail will spur them into action.

I get these e-mails. A lot. For Jane Harper. For Refuge. For Flood Rising. I even get them for books that were never meant to have sequels. And my response is always something like this: (Insert book title) needs to sell better before I spend a LOT of time and money writing and publishing a sequel. The best way you can make that happen is to post a review on Amazon.

Project Nemesis Issue #4 Preview

ProjectNemesis_Issue004_CvrAThe madness continues!

With more stellar art from Matt Frank and variant cover from Bob Eggleton, Project Nemesis continues to be one of the best looking comics available (in my humble, yet extremely biased opinion). Check out the sample pages for issue and  just try to disagree. Grab your copy tomorrow! In this issue, Nemesis brings the smack down on Portland, ME, before making her way south, while Jon Hudson and the FC-P start figuring out where Nemesis came from, and what she’s after.

Jeremy Robinson Starts the Apocalypse…Machine

apocalypse-header

The last four months represent the longest stretch of time in which I have not released a new book in the past five years. What did I do with all that free time? Well, I wrote and prepped the reason for this blog post: Apocalypse Machine. That doesn’t mean I typically release novels so quickly after writing them. In fact, there are four other novels that were completed before Apocalypse Machine, all of which will be released throughout the year. But I was so excited about this book, and how it came out, that it was bumped to the front of the line and is kicking off 2016 in a big way…in a really big way. So let’s get to it!

The Apocalypse Starts Here

Every now and then, I write a novel that gets me a little more pumped than usual. These are usually stories that not only have the same mix of action, mythology, science and monsters as all my books, but bring a little something extra to the table. They’re books that, while still crazily paced, are driven by characters the reader really cares about, and might even tug at the heart strings. So if you enjoyed novels like The Didymus Contingency and The Last Hunter, you’re going to love Apocalypse Machine. And for you action junkies, there is insanity galore, with destruction matching or beating the events of Antarktos Rising, Project Nemesis, and Hunger.

Apocalypse Machine is being released in print (trade paperback and hardcover) and as a Kindle Exclusive, which means it won’t be available on Nook, Kobo, etc… right away. There has also been a slight delay with the hardcover, so if that’s the version you want (and it’s a sweet package), it should be available by the end of the week. As for the Kindle Exclusivity, most of my books are sold via Kindle, and making the books exclusive allows me to partner with Amazon to market the book in unique ways. If you’re on a different e-reader, the book will eventually be released everywhere, but for now, the very cool print book is available.

*There is a slight delay with the print editions. The hardcover will be live later this week, and while the trade paper is currently live, it’s not in stock yet. I suspect it will be fully available by the end of the day. 

Description:

THE HUMAN RACE STARTED THE SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION ON EARTH…

A chain of subglacial volcanoes erupt in Iceland. The melting ice floods the countryside. Poisonous gas descends on Scotland. A tsunami devastates the Norwegian coastline. An ash cloud rises into the atmosphere, blotting out the sun across Europe, ushering in a new Ice Age. Dozens of nuclear power plants, flooded by ocean water, experience meltdowns. Millions perish. Many more are displaced. All on the first day.
