It's not like I purposefully forget to update the website! I, uh, forgot to update the website... all the same. So what's new in the Land of Cordova? Well, quite a bit is going on around here. Larry Correia and I are going over the final edits of MONSTER HUNTER MEMOIRS: FEVER right now. Yeah, … Continue reading In the Land of Confusion (aka Cordovatown)
Preorder Day — In France!
The Kin Wars have been translated into another language -- this time, we're invading France! (I jest, I jest... Spain doesn't want France. We want Portugal) This means the Kin Wars have now been translated into German and French, besides the original English publication. Counting the Japanese translation for the Kaiju Apocalypse novelettes I co-authored … Continue reading Preorder Day — In France!
Release Day — in Germany!
The German translation of SONS OF THE LION is currently live over on Amazon.de. For some reason my books do very well in Germany. I'm not complaining. I just find it odd. Keep buying my books, German-speaking world, and I'll keep writing them. Wenn du das Gold des Kaisers nimmst, wirst du zum Mann des … Continue reading Release Day — in Germany!
FantaSci 2023 AAR — The “It’s Still This Week” Edition
Once again Joel Lyons and crew put on an amazing FantaSci. Thanks to all the volunteers who worked their tails off to make sure this year's FantaSci went off without too many hitches. But before the con started... dinner at The Angus Barn in Raleigh, NC! Joining us was our host, Flight Doc (name protected … Continue reading FantaSci 2023 AAR — The “It’s Still This Week” Edition
Future Books Podcast and Other Stuff
A few weeks back I sat down with the Future Books podcast and talked about THE MISFITS, ON A CLOUDY DAY, and my Baen anthology CHICKS IN TANK TOPS. We also talked briefly about my forthcoming collaboration with Larry Correia, MONSTER HUNTER MEMOIRS: FEVER, which will hit bookstores later this year on October 6. Here … Continue reading Future Books Podcast and Other Stuff
Release Day! March Edition
THE MISFITS (coauthored with the amazing Kevin Ikenberry) was released into the wild on Friday and we hit #1 in the category almost immediately on Amazon. Granted, it dropped back down to #2 eventually but for those glorious 12 hours? Oh yeah, I reveled in it. Working on another project at the moment. A new … Continue reading Release Day! March Edition
Procrastinating Like A Boss
I owe Jamie Ibson a short story (...UNTIL THE WOLVES ARRIVE) but, as usual, I'm just not feeling it right now. Which is weird because when we were plotting this thing out, it was arguably the best thing ever. Quintus Fox and Jamie's character Orph Buffington teaming up in a two-part story duology? Sign me … Continue reading Procrastinating Like A Boss
I'll be at FantaSci on March 24 -- 26, 2023 in Durham, NC. I might be pain-addled (and drug-addled), depending on if I have surgery the week before. It's a pretty busy FantaSci this year (yay!), so if I am running to another room and can't talk for more than a few seconds, I apologize … Continue reading FantaSci Schedule
Book Finished and Cover Reveal
Kevin Ikenberry and I turned in THE MISFITS late last night to our publisher, which is the direct sequel to ON A CLOUDY DAY. This will conclude a roughly 27 book and anthology story arc which began for both of us way back in the first Four Horsemen universe anthology A Fistful of Credits, edited … Continue reading Book Finished and Cover Reveal
Audiobook is out! January was nuts!
January has been one busy month! As you know, Bob, CHICKS IN TANK TOPS came out January 3 and continues to do well. Response has been amazing and the authors all contributed awesome stories for it. I'm hoping it does well enough that I can do a second one. Esther and I already have the … Continue reading Audiobook is out! January was nuts!
On A Cloudy Day Is Out Now!
You heard right. ON A CLOUDY DAY, Book 3 of the Phoenix Initiative and my fifth Four Horsemen Universe book to date, dropped today and already is up to #2 in Hot New Releases. I was going to talk about how I was going to take down number one but then saw it was Salman … Continue reading On A Cloudy Day Is Out Now!
I Thought It Had Only Been Two Weeks!
I thought only two weeks had passed since I'd last updated. I was WRONG. Oops. My bad. I'm on a vacation of sorts right now (first time I've done this and not been at a science fiction convention in a long time) but I figured I would update everyone on the crazy life of Cordova. … Continue reading I Thought It Had Only Been Two Weeks!
Book Release Day!
(...a day late...) Yesterday the long-awaited CHICKS IN TANK TOPS was released into the wild and immediately shot up to #1 for Hot New Releases on Amazon. Which is awesome! Then to top it off, later on it went up to #379 overall across all of Barnes & Noble ebooks -- in spite of their … Continue reading Book Release Day!
Novel Turned In and A Year in Review
I took a brief break from doing the AI presidents because I almost missed a book deadline. Fortunately, my coauthor reminded me that we needed to have it done by Christmas and we got it. 111,000 words of mayhem and carnage, and the next Four Horsemen book coauthored with Kevin Ikenberry is finished. ON A … Continue reading Novel Turned In and A Year in Review
The Midjourney Presidents — Part 2
So while playing around with the artificial intelligence Midjourney, I realized that focusing a single painter on all the presidents was, well, a tad boring. So I took a poll amongst a few friends and came up with alternates to be posted at a later date. I actually ran out of hours this month on … Continue reading The Midjourney Presidents — Part 2
