Something for everybody!

March 13, 2017 Rob 0

I’m making progress on all the books I owe you people. :) First, the audiobook of Mercury Shrugs is now available on Amazon and Audible. Personally, I think this is the best Mercury book since Mercury Falls, and Rob Drex does an excellent job on the narration. Four years after the destruction of the planeport, Earth remains cut off from Heaven. The angels and demons are in disarray, lacking direction and leadership. Someone has to step up and take control, […]

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 […]

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 […]
