If you have not already had a looksee at my first novel, you can get a free digital copy of it this weekend on Kindle. This is to help celebrate the launch of my story collection, Beginnings, this coming Tuesday. You’ve probably seen me talk about it and I will be talking about it more in the future to be sure.
Check it out at the link below. It’s a great time to stay indoors out of the heat, read a book, and take in the beginning of a new sci-fi saga.
This isn’t going to be much of a blog post. The short and sweet of it is that the preorder link for After Terra: Beginnings is below. The release price is 99 U.S. cents, and the collection launches 8 days from now on July 30, 2019.
I realize that a significant portion of the reading populace prefers print to digital, and to be fair I’m not sure when I will have a physical version of the collection made available, but if you dig ebooks, science fiction, and want to support the work I do in a tangible way, please consider checking this out. It will only put a marginal dent at most in your weekly coffee budget.
Top o’ the morn to you, internet. This little 4th of July update will be short and sweet.
Those of you who follow me on other sites may have already gleaned that I have been working on a short story collection. Well, finally, it has been written and is nearly ready for public consumption. After Terra: Beginnings is now a reality after having languished on my to-do list for a bit longer than I cared for. It contains six short stories (or vignettes, if you prefer) intended to give you, the reader, a deeper look into what made the After Terra heroes the people they are before they came together as a crew. You will also learn more about the future Solar System and how it came to be.
What is the release date? I’m glad you asked. The collection will be released digitally on Tuesday, July 30th 2019 C.E./-54 A.T.
A preorder link will be coming soon for those of you into that sort of thing.
In the meantime, feast yon eyes upon the cover. Until next time.

The sequel to one of the few books to ever make me laugh aloud in public. (more…)
Part two of my larger discourse on science fiction. This section focuses on what I am trying to accomplish with my own fiction, before broadening the scope once more to discuss other contemporary works and where the genre is headed. (more…)
Or… part one of a longer than usual post. This is about my perceived decline of franchises and works of art that have inspired me, but have fallen far from their peak or were not allowed to peak to begin with. This is intended to lead into a larger discussion of science fiction as a genre, where it is going, and my part in it. (more…)
