|Welcome Newcomers.I have to remind myself that almost two thousand new people have hopped aboard this train in the last four weeks. So I need to bring them up to date while still keeping the regulars who’ve been here all along entertained. And the best way to keep people entertained is to give them cute things to look at. |
Since I ran the second McStupid McContest the nice people at Spreadshirt sent me more masks for children instead of a refund. So I put them up on Facebook and now have more cute photos to share.
Which, as far as I’m concerned, is totally worth it.
Much more below.
Okay, I hope that’s enough cuteness to hold you for a while. If you missed last week’s sample, you can CLICK HERE to wallow in the sugary coolness.
Now, on to the fun stuff.
SPLICE: HIT BIT TECHNOLOGY is out and people are liking it. One funny thing is that, after numerous beta reads and two complete edits, the paying customers noticed something the rest of us missed. A postage stamp.
No, I’m not kidding. It’s a teeny tiny thing, but all the ones who reached out to me brought it up. Thankfully, this is a soft launch, so I can make the correction, add the stamp, and make the world happy.
Stamps aside, I can’t tell you how much fun I had writing this. I got to try new techniques, immerse myself in a near future world that feels entirely plausible, and generally have a great time. Hopefully, when you read it, all that will come through.
Now, he’s an enigma known only as Splice; a criminal mastermind with unlimited resources, cunning, and guile. A silent force who can make world leaders disappear in a miasma of blood and gore. But how did he get here? Where did he come from? The world may never know, but you will.SPLICE: HIT BIT TECHNOLOGY, the story of how a homeless kid in Omaha grew up to make governments cower in fear.Based on the upcoming feature film from © Watchdog Entertainment ® LLC.
2020 is shaping up to be a good year for me. As long as you ignore the pandemic and social insanity. Besides SPLICE: HIT BIT TECHNOLOGY, I also have Goptri of the Mists coming out. And that’s going to take a little effort when it comes to getting people to read it. Early responses from beta readers were eerily similar; they loved the book, but initially resisted reading it due to the fact they thought it was about Hindu mysticism.
It’s not. Not even a little.
It’s the prequel/sequel to The Brittle Riders which has recently been released as an omnibus edition. So, if you need something to bludgeon people with, or just to have for a nice summer read, this fits the bill.
At its essence Goptri is two, linear, stories told simultaneously. One is of the times before Geldish and his merry band of hyper-violent miscreants roamed the world, and the other is shortly after. None of the beta readers were confused by the back and forth threads. And, bonus for the kids in the cheap seats, it’s got a lot more sex and violence than The Brittle Riders, so you’ve got that to look forward to.
It was one thing to maintain order, quite another to inflict tyranny. When that line got blurred one brave soul rose up in protest and set off a chain of events that would eventually lead to a world war, alien robots, and non-dimensional souls. But, before all that could happen, he’d need some bourbon, some luck, and some mists to rule.
Last, but most certainly not least, the Hybrid Zero multiverse, of graphic novels and comics, is rapidly expanding. Juggernaut, parts 1 and 2, is out along with Jungle Grrl and Cassandra and the Changeling Sword. You can read them online for free when you click the link above. Or you can order hard copies by CLICKING HERE. You’re welcome to do both by the way. Others have and seem pleased with their decision.
The Hybrid Zero multiverse is where consensual sex is lauded, violence is taboo, & a family of genetically modified assassins are the multiverse’s only hope.
One word of warning for the newbies, Hybrid Zero is an uninhibited look at the future. Or, to be blunt, it’s not safe for work, church, school, or any public place where people might look over your shoulder.
It’s also one hell of a read.
Next week I’ll have updates on other comic titles and more stuff you can enjoy.
Until then, CLICK HERE to read a bunch of free stuff while you stay safe, sane and inside.
