SPACE FORCE HAS LANDED!

KINDLE

As the years progress and I worry less and less about what other people think of me, I have found myself pushing up against my own personal boundaries of what is and isn’t acceptable to include in a novel. The result has been novels with a little more graphic content, whether that be violence, displays of the unfettered human condition, a creative use of foul language, or the occasional brush with sex (though, let’s be honest, your mom probably reads far worse than I will ever write in regards to the sexy time).

During that time I’ve written about the desperate story of an immortal man traveling through the depths of space, and an island populated by a twisted uncontacted tribe with a penchant for murder, and a story about a child abducted by…well, read the book (The Others). The point is, I’ve been writing some very serious stories.

By March of 2018, I was ready to lighten things up a bit. I’ve missed the sarcastic outlet of Jon Hudson (Project Nemesis) and wanted to get back to that. It was a few days later that I saw President Trump’s first mention of Space Force. It was like a gold plated muse had flown out of my computer screen and shot me, point blank. Two days later, I started writing, and spent the next two months making myself laugh. Hopefully, you’ll share my sense of humor. If not, you may never read one of my books again.

If you have concerns about this book being political propaganda, please see the Q@A below.

On to the book!

“But you said so much already,” you say. “How could you have anything else to write about this book?!”

I’ll be brief. I promise. I’d rather you be reading the book, so if you’re already in, just skip this crap and go right on to the buy links!

Oldies, but Goodies – A Look Back at Viral Videos

bishoppuppetOver the years, I’ve tried all kinds of marketing for my books, from the more traditional, like advertising and book trailers, to the high tech, like QR codes. But one of my favorite marketing techniques, even if there is really no proof that it works, is viral videos. And I use the word, ‘viral’ loosely, because a video isn’t truly viral until it goes viral. While some of my videos have chalked up thousands, even hundreds of thousands of views, some of them languish in the hundreds. There’s no way to know what will work and what won’t, and even when they work, there’s no way to know if they helped sell books. BUT, they are fun to make, and all of them are good memories for me and the people brave enough to star in them along with me. ┬áSome of you long-time fans will have probably seen most of these, but judging by the numbers on a few, not all of them. And any new readers who watch these for the first time, please don’t stop reading my books when you realize I have a ridiculous sense of humor.
