My most ambitious project ever: Saga of the Iron Dragon!

March 23, 2017 Rob 0

What if you found yourself in medieval Scandinavia with nothing but a knowledge of modern science, mathematics and technology? Further, what if the future of humanity rested on you building a craft capable of reaching outer space? Would it be possible? How would you go about doing it? How long would it take? This is the premise of my ambitious new alternative history trilogy, Saga of the Iron Dragon. Clearly you wouldn’t be able to build a spaceship on your […]

Kickstarting Your Novel

March 2, 2017 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.   Writing a novel is hard. Making money on a novel is even harder. If your book doesn’t find an audience, it may never happen. One way to minimize risk and accelerate the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Help me make Space even bigger!

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 […]
