HELIOS is here!

For those new to the series, the first book, Herculean, took a group of characters from the Jack Sigler Thriller series and formed a new team. Joining the ranks of an ancient organization formed by the historical Hercules, they protect ancient relics, knowledge and creatures, from those who would destroy, pillage and use them. Even more important, they protect humanity from the ancient powers just waiting to be released back into the world. Now, the Cerberus Group is back, and this time the fate of the world is at stake.

SUMMARY:

THE BEGINNING OF THE END…

A deadly swarm of earthquakes shakes the planet. In the sky above, the sun appears to stand still.

While the world reels from the vast destruction, George Pierce and the Cerberus Group, a team of scientific and historical experts, uncovers an imminent threat straight out of history that must be stopped. But not everyone wants them to succeed.

An apocalyptic death cult made up of suicidal martyrs and true believers who will do whatever it takes to ensure the destruction of all life on Earth goes head-to-head with a billionaire tech-genius commanding an army of robots, on a quest to own the sun itself.

Caught in the middle, the Cerberus Group must fend off both sides while traveling to every corner of the map, and into the depths of myth and history, to find the holiest treasure on Earth–an artifact that can harness the power of creation. The prophecies are true.

…THE END IS NIGH.

Jeremy Robinson and Sean Ellis, the international bestselling team behind the Jack Sigler thrillers, including Cannibal and Empire, continue the new series that rewrites the way we see history. Rivaling the best of Matthew Reilly and James Rollins, Helios combines a blistering pace with fringe science and myths reborn.

THE END IS NIGH…For Series Novels

I’m going to preface this post by pointing out that I’m giving you all full disclosure about what’s happening and why (as I did with my 2016 health scares). I have a unique relationship with my amazing fans and I don’t like leaving people hanging. What follows will seem like bad news for some, but there is a silver lining, so read to the end for that!

Because I’m the proprietor of Breakneck Media, the small press that publishes most Jeremy Robinson, Jeremy Bishop and Jeremiah Knight novels, which I write, I have to wear multiple hats. I’m an author, first and foremost, but I also create most of the covers, art-direct the rest, design and maintain the website, create all the video trailers, create the marketing materials, and…run the business. That means, on occasion, I have to mentally sit down with myself, look at the numbers, and make some hard calls.

In that past, that’s meant leaving a publisher. Now it means shifting my focus from writing series titles to standalone novels. While a good number of fans will no doubt disagree with the outcome (I don’t like it, either) the numbers don’t lie. I’m also going to lay out a few reasons for each series’ decline, but then propose a larger, theoretical reason at the end. So if you’re interested in saving any of these series, read to the end.

THE NUMBERS

While I’m not going to reveal sales figures or revenue numbers, I am going to talk in percentages, and reveal which series are being affected, all of which have a core group of fans who are going to be disappointed. I wish it could be avoided, but continuing with these series is unsustainable for me. There are a few series for which I plan on publishing a series finale, and with those books I expect to either break even, or take a loss.

JACK SIGLER THRILLERS

Falling under this banner is the Jack Sigler Thrillers themselves, the Continuum series, and the Cerberus Group books. Does that mean you shouldn’t read Helios, the next Cerberus Group novel? Not at all. The finale for all these books will be linked together in grand fashion, bringing together characters that have been separated for many books now.

CENTURION – The Final Continuum Novella is Here!

While 2016 was a rough year for me personally (outside of the dismay shared by the world last year), 2017 is already turning around. Last week, I was cleared of a brain tumor and life altering disease a doctor previously told me I had. The chaotic emotions that plagued my summer, caused by some kind of chemical imbalance, has faded. And big things are afoot…that I can’t yet talk about. What I CAN talk about is Centurion, the third and likely final Continuum book.

Why the last?

When things got rough over the summer, I realized I had been pushing myself too hard for a long time. In 20 years, I had taken exactly zero vacations. Over the next year (maybe two) all of my series will come to an end, mostly to create open patches in my schedule when I can relax, and to let me focus on standalone novels which are the more creatively rewarding (and better selling). More on that another time. Let’s get to the fun stuff!

PULSE – THE MOVIE – AN UPDATE

Unofficial Mock Movie Poster

So it’s been about a year since Variety broke the news about the PULSE movie deal.  Since then, the most frequent question I receive from fans is, “Is the movie getting made?!” So I decided to give you all an update. For those of you who are strapped for time, the short answer is, “I don’t know.” But the long answer is much more interesting, so keep reading!

The first step in any movie production is the creation of a script. Over the past year, screenwriter Adam Aresty, has been hard at work on the PULSE script. I know, because I’ve seen several drafts of the screenplay, which is now finished! And here’s what I can tell you about that: it’s awesome. Now, some purists might take exception to some of the changes that inevitably take place when a novel is turned into a movie, but as a screenwriter myself, I recognize the need for the changes and support them.
