Though my general level of activity on the internet sometimes suggests otherwise. (more…)
Not to worry, I’m not doing anything political, I merely thought it was a funny title.
After Terra: Year 200 is currently in a best novel contest over at inkitt.com, and I need the help of readers like you to vote for it so I can potentially win a snazzy publishing contract. And, if you haven’t had the chance to read Year 200 yet, this will give you the chance to read from a digital copy of the manuscript and see what you’ve been missing out on.

Behold, at last, the aforementioned and long overdue 4th edition cover for After Terra: Year 200. My thanks once more go out to Jon Hrubresch for his work on this piece of art. It’s the kind of cover that this book should have had all along, especially in keeping with the general style and vibe of the covers for In the Baron’s Shadow and Lunacy.
Now that this update is complete (and should go live on Amazon within the next 48-72 hours), the next focus for me will be on adding more codices to the site, putting the finishing touches on my next two Youtube videos, and completing more reviews of some interesting indie works that have been sent my way.
An update on a longtime work in progress.
In addition to the more typical blog post that is to follow, this post is making its way to existence. Its purpose: to let you know that Kindle versions of two of the After Terra novels are on sale today. There is no contemporary reason I am aware of to mark January 6th as a day of any great import (as far as holidays are concerned), however, in the fictional future of the world I’ve rendered, January’s equivalent, Germinal, and its sixth day, marks Merchant’s Day. It’s a quaint event, begun by the vapid salesmen of the Neptune and Logos territories, meant to jumpstart sales figures for the brand new year, after what are often multiple days of drinking and carousing by most of the populace on New Year’s Day.
If you have read Year 200 and have yet to continue the journey, now is a great and cheap opportunity to do so. Take advantage of your possible descendants’ future habits and grab the rest of the series at a steep discount.
Coming off the terrestrial spookiness of Halloween, my eyes return once more to the stars. In part to help celebrate Irish Book Week, in part to show off an updated look for my first novel, and thirdly, as a thank you, my way of giving back to those of you who support and appreciate the literary world, the digital version of my first novel, After Terra: Year 200, will be free on Amazon’s Kindle platform during November 3 and 4, 2018.
I realize that some of you prefer to read physical, rather than digital, copies of books, and that is totally understandable. If you don’t have a Kindle, I beseech you to pass on the word to those that do so they can score a free story, one I hope they will enjoy.
As always, reviews and shares are appreciated by any of those who read my work. I am now on goodreads.com as well as bookbub.com, so if you for some reason encounter any problems leaving feedback through Amazon, there are other options.
For those of you new to the After Terra series, and want a preview before downloading, please click the read more link below to sample the first chapter of Year 200. Thank you! (more…)
