Late last night, while watching an absolutely atrocious movie, I had a thought experiment come to mind. I dismissed it quickly enough, since the whole point that the director tried to make was his attempt to cause the viewer to "think" (when, in reality, the message was more "I'm smarter and morally superior than you", but whatever), … Continue reading The Dilemma of Us
I wonder if people are getting tired of these yet? This is Kaiju Apocalypse III (not our most original of titles, we know). This is the final book in this series of novellas, and this was Eric's baby (I suck and only contributed a little). On the plus side, this coming weekend Eric and I are going … Continue reading Another Cover Reveal
A brief update, since I need to finish Kaiju Apocalypse III by tonight (yeah, this has been one tough little but to crack). Murder World: Kaiju Dawn is doing well but could use more reviews. I likened it today to "Ishiro Honda and Joss Whedon teamed up for a project". Ishiro Honda, for those who don't know, directed the very … Continue reading Time Consuming
Since Kaiju Apocalypse II is being released this weekend (or next week, not entirely sure at this time), Eric and I are working on the third book and final book of the series right now (untitled, but I'd lay money on something like Kaiju Apocalypse III. Fits the theme, ya know?). We also happen to be working … Continue reading Ewww
Next book in The Kaiju Wars series. I like it. Thoughts?
So remember when I said that Kaiju Apocalypse was on sale for $0.99 for the upcoming release of Murder World: Kaiju Dawn? Well, that was one short wait, wasn't it? Well, the Kindle version of Murder World: Kaiju Dawn is out and available now. Best of all, there was a slight cover change (I'm a horrible human being). You should … Continue reading Murder World Is Out
In anticipation of the release of Murder World: Kaiju Dawn, Amazon is currently offering Kaiju Apocalypse for a mere $0.99. That's pretty awesome. You should totally buy it now that it's cheaper than a crappy McDonald's double cheeseburger (I think, I could be wrong about the price of a double cheeseburger and the quality of said item). And … Continue reading Price Drop
It never ceases to amaze me just how much an author will research just for one freaking line in a book... I actually got to utter this sentence tonight while working on Kaiju Armageddon. I mean, between researching the vagus nerve and then radio wave transmission to Ceres and the asteroid belt, I've really messed with … Continue reading Too Much Gloat
Similar in appearance to Kaiju Apocalypse (but a different universe and story altogether, I promise) here is the rough draft cover for Murder World: Kaiju Dawn. Co-authored with Eric S. Brown again (we make quite the team -- this is the third book we've collaborated on in the past 8 months), it should see a release over the next … Continue reading Cover Reveal! Murder World: Kaiju Dawn
That turnaround time has to be some sort of record. Murder World has a new title and a home. Severed Press (those who brought you Kaiju Apocalypse by myself and Eric S. Brown) bought it Wednesday morning (less than 12 hours after we finished it), and we decided to go with a different title. It's now Murder World: Kaiju Dawn. Why … Continue reading Sold! And Please Tip Your Waiter
I'll be reviewing this SF novel next week (probably Monday) but I wanted to give this one a "shout out" right now. Oh, and quit judging books by their covers. It's rude. This is one of those military SF novels that grabs you and won't let go. I've taken my time reading it these past … Continue reading Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy — Sam Schall’s “Vengeance From Ashes”
So one of my friends posted the following on Facebook: Hey folks, does your life not have enough excitement? wah wah music plays> Do you long for the days of being able to pick up a book and lose yourself in the heroic struggles of man against 300 ft. tall alien/dragon/dinosaur things? Was 'Pacific Rim' … Continue reading Kaiju Day 2
Final proof copy of Kaiju Apocalypse was turned in late last night (I think I finished going over it at around 0045). There were some formatting issues (what is it with me and screwed-up formatting?) but nothing I couldn't handle. It should be out any day now in ebook format (and maybe print). It'll be my first … Continue reading Coming Soon
By far a favorite cover of mine. Kaiju Apocalypse, coauthored with the amazing Eric S. Brown. Coming soon from Severed Press.
I've been stupidly busy the past few weeks (to steal a line from my friend Gerry). This is going to be a long update, so you may want to grab something to drink, or let the dog out. First off, let me say that Mysticon 2014 was an absolute blast. It went off without a … Continue reading Stupid Busy
