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 […]

Help me make Space even bigger!

August 16, 2016 Rob 0

Most of you probably know this already, but I figured I should do a blog post to make it official: I’m hoping to vastly expand the universe of my 2014 novel Starship Grifters. In particular, I’m going to: Revise and re-release “The Chicolini Incident” (prequel short story) Publish a prequel novella called The Yanthus Prime Job, starring Pepper Melange Publish a full-length sequel to Starship Grifters called Aye, Robot Starship Grifters was a blast to write so I’m really looking […]

Want some cheap Kindle scifi books?

July 22, 2016 Rob 1

I love to read. I also love to get books for super-cheap. As a result, I’m always on the lookout for deals on Kindle books. Sometimes I share these deals on Twitter and Facebook, and since I’m an Amazon affiliate, I make a few bucks here and there when somebody buys something using my links. Because of the capricious, ephemeral nature of these social networks, however, not many people actually see these posts. So, since I’m doing the work of […]

A sale… and a sequel?

July 5, 2016 Rob 3

Recently I wrote about some of the struggles I’ve been through over the past few years, and how those struggles culminated in the writing of my latest novel, The Big Sheep. Pivotal to that course of events was another book I wrote called Starship Grifters. Starship Grifters still holds a special place in my heart. I think it’s my funniest book, and was definitely the most fun to write. Readers seem to like it too; currently it has 134 reviews […]

Outside the U.S.? Want a copy of The Big Sheep?

July 1, 2016 Rob 0

Recently I’ve had several people in faraway lands ask how they can get their hands on a copy of The Big Sheep. Currently foreign rights are under negotiation, so it’s difficult to get the book outside North America. If you’re not in the U.S. and you’d like to get a copy of The Big Sheep, please fill out this form to let my publisher know! The more people who express an interest, the better the odds of getting an edition […]

So I have a new book out today.

June 28, 2016 Rob 21

I had planned to do a big promotional post about my new novel, The Big Sheep, which is out today, but frankly I’m a little sick of all this marketing crap. So instead, I’m going to talk a little about myself and what this book means to me. About two and a half years ago, my life fell apart. I lost my job, had a book deal fall through, got separated from my wife, was forced to sell the house that I […]

Get Distopia for only $.99!

June 22, 2016 Rob 0

For a very limited time, my lighthearted epic fantasy Distopia is only $.99 on Kindle! A fearsome dragon roams the Land of Dis, and only one man can stop it: an awkward young missionary named Wyngalf. Accompanied by a beautiful stowaway named Evena and an oddball goblin who has been shunned by his clan, Wyngalf wants nothing more than to prove himself to his superiors in the Church of the Noninity. But Wyngalf is continually thwarted in his attempts to […]

My new novel The Big Sheep doesn’t come out until June 28, but reviews are starting to trickle in. I’m thrilled to say that the response so far has been overwhelmingly positive.

Read the first chapter of The Big Sheep FREE!

June 16, 2016 Rob 0

Okay, so my publisher doesn’t exactly know I’m doing this, but I’m thinking maybe this is one of those “ask for forgiveness rather than permission” situations. So without further ado, here’s the first chapter of my new novel, The Big Sheep, available in hardcover and ebook on June 28. Read it now before the lawyers make me take it down. (if you prefer to read it offline, just go here. Enter your email address and I’ll send you a link […]
