I first heard about this book when JR Handley and I interviewed the author, Nick Cole, on our podcast, Sci-Fi Shenanigans. Once I saw the cover, I had an idea what the book would be about so I was willing to give it a shot. I didn’t high expectations only because I’m just not into video games like I was when I was young. However, that’s all changed now.
The first episode of SciFi Shenanigans will be available at 9 AM MST on 22 January. It should be available for everyone however you like to listen to your podcasts.
So, that short story novella is now going to be a novel. The cover is already on the way and my writing partner is ready to do his part. Now it’s time for me to do mine and write like crazy. Wish me luck!
I saw this movie. I freely admit it. I also enjoyed it. I freely admit that. What I don’t understand is the vitriol others are giving this film, so before my readers start sending hate-mail, please allow me to explain why.
Oh, and if you haven’t seen the movie yet, SPOILER ALERT!
The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of excitement and adventure in the world of writing. I’m working on a super-secret project with JR Handley, which might actually turn into something bigger. But first thing’s first, I need to get this project done.
As soon as it’s ready, I will announce it here. Stand by for something cool.
Sorry for the delay in my next book, but I’ve changed courses again. I’ve teamed-up with JR Handley to write a new series in a brand-new universe. Not only that, but I’m also recording a Sci-Fi podcast with him!
We will have three episodes recorded by the end of the day today, and our first will be released for your ear-holes in February.
This is the question authors get more than any other. It’s usually followed by a long-winded speech about how smart the author must be and how the other person could never ever do what they do.
That’s completely false. I’m a firm believer that everyone, each and every single person who can write a complete paragraph, has at least two books within them.
From time to time it becomes necessary to create characters whose sole purpose is to perish. For some reason, thinking-up names is one of the most difficult things about writing. For some other reason, some people really like seeing themselves snuffed-out in print. Don’t ask me, I’m just the author.
If you’d like to see yourself snuffed-out in print, enter your name here. You won’t receive anything other than the grim satisfaction of seeing what ultimate demise I come up with… muahaha!
What does it mean to be alive? Can one really know without knowing death, so one has something to compare its present to? How do we learn to feel shame, morality or joy? Who really exists? One mind, one train of thought, one process, and one idea leads to the discovery of universal truths if others will hear and listen.

The Kra’Daar is my first short story published by a real publisher!
The story takes place in The Four Horsemen Universe where Earth, after getting whooped by a bunch of aliens, decides to change its ways. No, I don’t mean flowers and maypoles, I mean war, mercenaries, and membership in an interplanetary, interspecies government.
My story involves a new race of aliens, called Kra’Daar who evolved to be more plant than humanoid but are still bipedal. They’re primitive, preferring to live off the land and in cooperation with nature, but membership made sense… at the time.
Forced to update their culture, shoehorned into a lifestyle most of the population of their homeworld finds strange, clumsy and confusing, a criminal is on the loose.
Only a Peacemaker can solve the mystery and stop the destruction. A Peacemaker has arrived.
For a Few Credits More is an anthology of short stories all occurring in the same universe. Explore what these authors have come up with and I hope you enjoy The Kra’Daar.
