Robinsonfest started in 2015. A group of very determined readers pressured me into holding a weekend-long gathering. We were just thirteen people back then, and the first Fest was held in Portsmouth, NH. The weekend was full of great food, good fun, and a lot of laughter. We decided to make it an annual thing, and it grew each year. Over the years we’ve done all manner of crazy things from Laser Tag to boat rides to exploring locations in the novels to making a short film!
St. Augustine, Florida, USA.
Until 2020, that is, when we put the event on pause for the pandemic.
But now Robinsonfest returns! And larger than ever!
And to celebrate our return, we decided to do something we hadn’t before: hold the event outside of New England. That’s right, this time we’re heading to St. Augustine, Florida! And the itinerary is packed with activities. To check out all the details….
And if you want to join us, be sure to sign up soon! Registration closes on March 30th! We hope to see you there!
The time has FINALLY come! I get to announce ONE of SEVERAL Hollywood projects that are in the works. And holy forking shirt balls, it is a big one. Like…kaiju sized.
That’s right folks, as reported in Deadline...
PROJECT NEMESIS, is in development as a TV series!!!
Chad Stahelski (director of John Wick 1 – 4) is at the helm, and if that isn’t awesome enough, it’s being produced by Original Film AND Sony Pictures Television (the team behind The Boys, SWAT, Preacher and Happy!). Below, along with some awesome Nemesis art, I’ll tell you how all this came about, where things are, and where we’re headed.
“I can’t say how excited I am to help bring Jeremy Robinson’s Project Nemesis to the screen. From the first moment I started reading it, I was hooked. This amazing book series has everything I love about the genre: martial arts, action, great characters, and of course, Kaiju!” — Chad Stahelski, director of John Wick 1 – 4
HOW WE GOT HERE
This all began so long ago I honestly don’t remember the year. But it was about six years ago, in September, when I got a call from director Chad Stahelski. He’d read Project Nemesis, and being a fellow kaiju fan with Massachusetts roots, he fell in love with the story. So much so that he wanted to create a series based on it. We spoke for about an hour, with him laying out his vision for the series…which matched perfectly with my own. I was on board, 100%.
And then, the waiting began. It was two years before Chad would go into Original Film for a meeting about the Highlander movie he’s directing and casually mention Nemesis. When he left that meeting, we had producers attached, and shortly after, SONY was on board. Thus began the years-long contract negotiations during which I met with Chad several times, and was lucky enough to attend the John Wick 2 and 3 premieres. Finally, a year ago, the contracts were squared away and signed. And since then–really for the past six years–I’ve been bouncing off the walls, dying to tell EVERYONE that this was in the works. And now here we are, and I’m freaking out. Hopefully, you are too!
WHERE WE ARE AND WHERE WE ARE GOING

Mind Bullet is here!
If you’re like me, you’ve wondered what it would be like to kill a yak, from 200 yards away, with Mind Bullets (‘That’s telekinesis, Kyle’), ever since Tenacious D released their song, Wonderboy in 2001. Well, now its time to find out! *No yak’s were harmed in the writing of this book.
It was just four months ago that The Dark was released. That’s not a ton of time, but I used to release a book a month, so the current three books a year feels slow to me…but also a nice change of pace. Means I get to work on screenplays, and relax a bit.
Long, long ago, back in 2005, I started my career by self-publishing The Didymus Contingency, Raising the Past, Antarktos Rising, Beneath, and Kronos. A few years into this endeavor I caught wind of something called podcast novels–serialized audiobooks–and found the concept fascinating. Unlike some lucky authors (I’m looking at you, Scott), I am a horrendous narrator. I lacked the equipment, the finances to get the equipment, and the voice to pull it off. So when I was contacted by Jeffrey Kafer, who had done voiceover work and was looking to get into narrating, I jumped at the chance to work with him. The result was the original Kronos and Beneath audiobooks, released for free as podcast novels. Not only were these my first audio books, but they were also Jeff’s. Both books received great reviews and were downloaded…a LOT. I don’t have the stats any more, but if they were sales, I’d have been Scrooge McDucking into a vault of gold coins.
