Holy shit, I’ve got a lot of books coming out

February 3, 2017 Rob 1

I know, I know, I owe you a post about my experiences in Costa Rica (short version: I’m still here, feeling good, getting a lot of sun, embarrassing myself with my spotty grasp of Spanish). But first, a quick update on my books: I just put “The Chicolini Incident“, my short story prequel to Starship Grifters, back up on Amazon for the ridiculously low price of $.99. So go get it. Like, now. In case you missed it, The Yanthus […]

Be in the know about Kindle scifi deals

December 3, 2016 Rob 0

Did you know that I have a special secret email list that I use for telling people I really like about awesome scifi book deals on Kindle? It’s true! And for a limited time* I am allowing random, unimportant individual such as yourself to sign up for it! In the past, I’ve featured deals on books by Kurt Vonnegut, George R.R. Martin, Douglas Adams, Richard Matheson and many more. All the books are available for Kindle and usually they are on […]

For a very limited time: signed posters!

October 13, 2016 Rob 0

By popular demand, I have added posters to my online store. The store will only be open until 10/20 (that’s one week from today), so if you’ve dreamed of having the beautiful artwork from Starship Grifters or Aye, Robot on your wall (or the gorgeous map of the Land of Dis), don’t dawdle! This is probably the last time I’ll be offering these posters for sale.                   Seriously, I’m not screwing around here. […]

Autographed paperback sale!

October 11, 2016 Rob 0

Great news! For a limited time, I am offering autographed hard copies of all of my books at a special discounted rate. If you’re missing a few of my books or want to give them as a gift (Christmas is coming up, you know), this is the time. I will even personalize the inscription in the book if you like. If you are giving the books as a gift, you can have them sent to you or directly to the recipient. […]

The Starship Grifters Universe is expanding!

August 25, 2016 Rob 0

The Starship Grifters Universe Kickstarter is fully funded! We’ve raised over $5,000 for more books in the Starship Grifters universe. That means a novel-length sequel, a novella, and a revised version of “The Chicolini Incident.” We’ve still got 14 days to go, so I’ve decided to add a few stretch goal awards to encourage people to pledge (or increase their pledge!). If we reach $6,000 in the next 2 weeks, I will send posters with the cover art for The Yanthus […]

A glimmer of hope for the future

June 21, 2016 Rob 4

I got an interesting email the other day. It’s not uncommon for me to get emails asking for advice, help plugging a book, or offering me some service. Generally these emails range from midly annoying (“I can give your website more visibility!”) to downright insulting (“Can you tell me how you managed to get a publishing contract?”). I ignore at least 90% of these, and the few that I deem worth of a response I usually reply with a curt […]

Progressivism is a virus

May 12, 2016 Rob 17

I had an epiphany recently. Someone on Twitter asked, “Is there any actual evidence that _______ is racist?” I don’t remember what _______ was; it doesn’t really matter. Some progressive social justice warrior douchebags had accused someone of being racist, and these people never let the lack of evidence deter them from making accusations. I replied to the tweet, “At this point, racist/sexist/homophobic/etc. are just progressive marketing catch phrases with no actual content.” This was just an off-the-cuff comment, but the […]

Thoughts on Rey after seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens a third time

January 13, 2016 Rob 1

Spoilers ahead, obviously. Just saw SW: TFA for the third time, and I’ve been thinking about the character of Rey. There’s definitely some Rey back story we haven’t seen yet. It’s tempting to think she has some force training that’s been repressed, but I think the explanation is more subtle than that. There are a few clues to this: When Rey picks up Luke’s lightsaber, she has a vision of events, some of which have already happened, but some of which occur […]

Mercury sale and contest winners (and a second chance for the losers)

September 2, 2015 Rob 0

A quick note to let y’all know that Amazon has the first three Mercury books on sale for $5.97 (or $1.99 each) on Kindle! That’s over a thousand pages of irreverent fun and startling insight (OK, maybe just the first one) for less than the cost of something that costs six dollars! Act now and you can also get the fourth Mercury book, Mercury Revolts, for $1.99 as well. Because I love you. Get the Mercury books now! In other news, I recently […]
