Surrender the Sun, now in Audiobook

For those of you who have so patiently waited, Surrender the Sun is now available on Amazon,  iTunes and Audible.

In Other News

Book Two in the Surrender the Sun series is coming along. I will tell you that this one will focus more nationally and the third book will focus more globally. And, if you’re not familiar with the Maunder Minimum, please look into it. There have been several new scientific warnings that have come out recently. –Odd when the thing you write about …might just come true. Shivers 

Also, the German edition of The China Pandemic, titled, Survivor, it doing fantastic. It’s stayed in the number one position of Post Apocalyptic for well over a week now. I’m so thankful to the Luzifer-Verlag publishers. They have asked for the second book, The Cascade Preppers, and it’s now in translation.

There will be another special announcement, in the next week or so concerning the Graham’s Resolution series. But for now…I’ll leave you with a few books I’ve read recently and recommend.

 

Scavenger by Ross Elder – A Perseid Collapse Novella

I wrote a blog post about this one recently. I cannot recommend this one enough. This author is VERY talented. Please give this one a try. It takes a lot to get me to weep while reading anymore…this one did.


Devil Dogs by Boyd Craven


RedLine by Alex Shaw – A Perseid Collapse Novella

Black Shuck Thriller by Ian Graham

 

Scavenger Trilogy by Ross Elder

Scavenger Trilogy by Ross Elder with Allyson Blake

Looking for something to read recently and realized I had not read Ross Elders’ addition to the Perseid Collapse…oh my!

I know Ross from The Edler Statesman. He’s also a great resource as a retired combat vet from the War in Afghanistan…and the man can write from the heart! He’s truly talented.

This is a story that tugged at my heartstrings for many reasons. Not only does it start with a child’s plight of abuse, the survival of such a life leads him to become a man with traits few are granted and equipt to deal with when confronted with the harsh world of the Perseid Collapse. I’ve not read a story like this…it’s unique.

I won’t say more and end up spoiling the story. I just encourage you to read Scavenger. You can buy the trilogy or purchase them one by one. You won’t be sorry. I was truly, blown away, and I’m certainly going to check out his other titles.

Graham’s Resolution Book One Hits #1 in Postapokalyptischer in Germany!

Thanks to my German publishers, Luzifer-Verlag, the first book in the Graham’s Resolution series has hit #1 on Amazon’s German site for the second day in a row!

And…they now have the second book in the series set for translation. The reviews have been great. It seems German readers appriciate the postapocalyptic genre as much as Americans do.

While perusing my publisher’s site I ran across several authors that I know and interact with often. They have some really great books out. One of those authors is G. Michael Hopf.

The-End-Web

His, The End series is quite popular in America as well.

In the Thriller genre, I’m accainted with Ian Graham. In fact, I met Ian in New Orleans last month at Bouchercon 2016. We had a great time there especially in the weapons class.

Black_Shuck-Web

And another British writer I’ve met, no relation, Alex Shaw is also published on Luzifer-Verlag.

So Graham’s Resolution is in good company, or as the Germans put it Grahams Prefung. I can’t wait to see the cover they come up with for book two.

#PoweredbyIndie is the hashtag for the month of October celebrating Indie Authors.

Becoming an indie author has suited my personality well. When I began with my first series, Graham’s Resolution, I only set out to tell a story…it’s what drove me and utilizing KDP as my publisher was an easy call. There was no competing for an agent or attempt to try and charm a publisher with my prose. I simply wrote the story within me and published my work. To my surprise readers actually liked what I wrote and I kept going with the series. That was enough encouragement for me to keep going. There’s nothing better than to have readers demand the next book in the series.

There’s nothing better than to have readers demand the next book in the series. There’s also nothing like having them tell you not to kill off a character because they’ve become so emotionally vested in a fictional person or dog that you’ve created. It’s a strange new world and I think I like it.

Now with my new series, Surrender the Sun, my readers are again sinking into a world I’ve created and demanding the next book…now! I’m working on it.

This is why indie publishing is so great. You have direct contact with your readers. And they are not shy about letting you know what they liked and what they didn’t.

For now, I’m sticking with indie publishing with a huge thanks to Amazon KDP Publishing. #PoweredByIndie. If you’d like to see the titles on Amazon’s Powered by Indie features, click on the links.

I’m thankful they made this possible!

Graham’s Resolution Goes to Germany

Graham’s Resolution Goes to Germany

A year ago publisher Luzifer-Verlag reached out to me to ask for the publishing rights of the first book in Graham’s Resolution, The China Pandemic. Luzifer-Verlag is an awesome German publishing company. They’ve translated and published books for authors, Russell Blake, Ian Graham, G. Michael Hopf and many others.

They created an intriguing cover and translated the novel into German. Just a few days ago the first book in Graham’s Resolution released in Germany and has ready received its first review. Of course, in translation, I can read the reviews and hope they keep coming and are positive. So far so good.

It’s great to extend my readership into another country and to share Graham’s Resolution.
