Great news! For a limited time, I am offering autographed hard copies of all of my books at a special discounted rate.

If you are giving the books as a gift, you can have them sent to you or directly to the recipient. […]

Last chance to get in on my audiobook library Kickstarter!

October 7, 2016 Rob 0

My audiobook library Kickstarter is currently 80% funded, and the Kickstarter ends on Monday. Looks like this one is going to come down to the wire! If you enjoy listening to audiobooks or know someone who does, please consider pledging. More details on the Kickstarter page. I will be producing audiobooks for Schrodinger’s Gat, Mercury Shrugs, City of Sand and Aye, Robot (the not-yet-released sequel to Starship Grifters). You can choose to receive any or all of the books. Great […]

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 […]

Less than 48 hours left! Get your pledge in now for the SGU!

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 […]

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 […]

WorldCon goes full CHORF, bans panelist for wrongthink

August 23, 2016 Rob 17

The CHORFs running WorldCon have really outdone themselves this time. I’m not going to get into the whole Sad Puppies/Rabid Puppies/Hugo Awards thing, but suffice it to say that there’s been a long-running controversy in the “scifi community” (I use quotes because it’s really more a clique composed of elitists in the industry and their hangers-on) about the deleterious effect of political correctness on the Hugo Awards and on the quality of science fiction in general. One man who has strong […]

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 […]

Self Publish Your Novel Part 8: Cover Design

July 15, 2016 Rob 0

    This post is part of a series of posts about self-publishing. I’m revising my book Self Publish Your Novel and posting the chapters as I finish them. If you’d like to be alerted when the new version of Self Publish Your Novel is available, please click here.   You can probably do most of the work of self-publishing your book yourself. One task for which you will probably want to seek outside help, however, is cover design. Being an amateur […]
