Two great things for today.
First, FREEHOLD: RESISTANCE is out in the wild. Barnes & Noble called and told me they had copies in the store, which I’d asked for (I like to stealth sign books). I think Friday I’m going into Roanoke to sign all the copies at both B&N stores. Assuming they still have any, that is.
This book can be read without reading any of the other books in the Freehold Universe, which the editor (Michael Z. Williamson) has done by design. In this one you’ll find Larry Correia, Kacey Ezell, Michael Z. Williamson, Mike Massa, Brad Torgerson… it’s a laundry list of the brightest and best authors out there right now, in my opinion. I’m really eager to see the reception for this one.
Second, we decided on a cover graphic and design (as well as a new title) for my first baby kaiju book. A CHRISTMAS SURPRISE looks snazzy as all get out with the title and my name on it. We’re hoping to have it ready to go soon. This is the first time I’ve worked with Mottfolio Design in this capacity and I must say, so far I’ve had nothing but positive experiences. Gotta recommend them for anyone looking for cover art and design.
I had a long rant ready to go about this season of WATCHMEN on HBO but quite frankly, I’m bored with it. I might post it later this week but spoilers will abound, as well as my obvious disgust. Now I’m just waiting for the newest season of THE EXPANSE to come out. That’s a show worth watching.
Also, THE MANDALORIAN? Yes, more of this, and keep Rian Johnson away from it. Use a shock collar if you need to, Disney, but keep him away.
