So this happened (PW review of The Last Iota)

April 7, 2017 Rob 0

From the Publisher’s Weekly starred review of The Last Iota (sequel to The Big Sheep): Kroese gifts readers with his gripping second mystery set in 2039 Los Angeles (after 2016’s The Big Sheep), another sophisticated blend of science fiction and crime. A decade after a national economic trauma known simply as the Collapse, a large segment of the city, the Disincorporated Zone, remains beyond the reach of law and order. PI Blake Fowler’s ex-girlfriend Gwen Thorson went into hiding there after […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

My scifi noir novel The Big Sheep isn’t even available yet in stores, and I’m giving you a chance to win one absolutely free. A shipment of hardcovers just arrived from my publisher, and they look awesome. I’ve already read the book, though, so I don’t really need five copies. Ergo, I’m giving them away. I’ll even sign them and maybe draw you a picture of a sheep. All you have to do is go here and enter your email […]

Ten million ways to pre-order The Big Sheep

June 14, 2016 Rob 0

“Maybe Robert Kroese’s latest sci-fi novel, The Big Sheep, isn’t co-authored by Phillip Dick, but it does the late great author some serious homage. At the same time…and this is remarkable… Kroese has conjured up a thoroughly original, stunningly intelligent plot that both thrilled and delighted me. It also made me laugh. A riveting, hallucinatory joy-ride into a dangerous future by a terrific author writing at the top of his game.” –Vincent Zandri, New York Times and USA Today bestselling […]

Introducing the Kroese Starter Library – FREE!

May 18, 2016 Rob 2

For a while now I’ve been playing around with giving away some of my books as a teaser to introduce new readers to my stuff. The problem is that I write so many different sorts of books that no single book is really representative of my style (This is another reason I’m a Bad Novelist: I’m kind of a nightmare from a marketing perspective. Pick a genre, damn it!). The solution to this problem, I’ve decided, is to give away […]
