Stay in the know about Kindle scifi book deals!

January 19, 2017 Rob 0

Many of you may not know that I maintain a special email list just for letting people know about deals I’ve found on scifi books on Kindle. For example, right now Nick Cole’s Dragon Award-winning novel Ctrl Alt Revolt is only $.99 on Kindle. In the past, I’ve featured deals on books by Neil Stephenson, Kurt Vonnegut, Blake Crouch, Octavia Butler and many more. I also often include at least one book by a less well known author, like Nick […]

Everything you need to know about self-publishing a book

December 28, 2016 Rob 0

Are you planning on self-publishing a novel or other book? Then I’ve got just the thing for you! I am currently working on a completely revised version of my book Self-Publish Your Novel. I originally published Self-Publish Your Novel in 2011, back when ebooks and self-publishing were in their infancy. At the time, that book covered everything I knew about publishing. Since then, I’ve published a bunch more books, and a lot has changed in the industry. I’ve rewritten about […]

December 13, 2016 Rob 4

A quick update about what I’m working on: My Pepper Melange novella, The Yanthus Prime Job, is now available on Kindle. At 59 pages, it’s a steal at $.99. Find out how buxom bounty hunter Pepper Melange, first introduced in Starship Grifters, got her start! Pepper Melange, a bartender on the backwater planet Yanthus Prime, has sworn she’d never go back to her life of crime. But when she finds herself in debt to the Ursa Minor Mafia, she decides […]

You can pre-order The Last Iota (sequel to The Big Sheep) now!

November 17, 2016 Rob 0

Hey, look what’s available for pre-order! The year is 2039, and Los Angeles is poised between order and chaos. After the Collapse of 2028, a vast section of LA, now known as the Disincorporated Zone, was disowned by the civil authorities and became essentially a third world country within the borders of the city. Navigating the boundaries between DZ and LA proper is a tricky task, and there’s no one better suited than eccentric private investigator Erasmus Keane. So when […]

“Oh, man,” said Rex. “DNA scrambling is the worst. Last time I had an ear growing between my shoulder blades.

That’s 60% off the regular price! Now I may be slightly biased, but I’m fairly certain Starship Grifters is the greatest book ever. Hell, it’s worth $1.99 just to […]

Help me produce audio versions of four of my novels!

September 27, 2016 Rob 0

Most of my books are available in audio, but I’ve been putting off producing audio versions of a few of my self-published books because of the time and expense involved. I’m hoping to raise $2,000 with a Kickstarter to get over that hump and get audio versions of four books produced. As your reward for supporting the Kickstarter, you’ll receive advance copies of the audiobooks in question. Assuming the Kickstarter is funded, I will be producing audiobooks for Schrodinger’s Gat, Mercury […]

September 7, 2016 Rob 0

We’ve met our stretch goal of $6,000, but there’s still time to get in on The Starship Grifters Universe Kickstarter if you haven’t pledged yet. In case you don’t know, Starship Grifters is a comedic space opera novel I published two years ago. It’s gotten rave reviews and has become something of a cult favorite. I’m going to expand the Starship Grifters universe with a full-length sequel, a novella, and a revised version of my short story, “The Chicolini Incident.” My […]
