Bi-Monthly Digest

Hello all!

Yeah this post is coming a bit late partly because I’ve been really busy with NaNoWrimo, writing, Book N Tech, new stuff (as seen below), and school. I mean did y’all really expect an author to keep his blog up to date?

Well for the stats:

105 Facebook likes (not much really changed there)

650 followers on Twitter (nice and explosive soon to be at 1,000!)

Now for the juicy stuff. The amazing Massimo Battaglia an Italian artist responsible for the Gymbot and boompack decided to make me an awesome science fiction cover! Since you my dear readers are nice people I will show you a low resolution version of what appears to be the final cover choice!

Dogs, Cats, Future of Humanity cover

Since it is NaNoWrimo I should be finishing Dogs, Cats, and the Future of Humanity by November 30th and well general availability is slated for January – February 2014 alongside a brand new highly edited version of Operation Hammer. Obviously stay tuned to the next bi-monthly digest, possibly a blog post (Oh my God right?) and some other goodies!

Behind the Books

Animals? Yes Sir/Ma’am I write about animals. Let me tell you why.

This is on my FAQ for sure, “Why would you put animals in your book. Isn’t that harder to write and for the readers like more difficult to understand?” I guess you have never read some New York Times bestselling series like Warriors, Seekers, or Leviathan? Haven’t you lived a boring enough life to not wonder what your dog, cat, or parrot might really be thinking? Are you sure they want to be petted or do they want to live their lives in the wild? Look at their undomesticated free counterparts. They seem pretty content with their lives until humans enter the equation. How do you think they feel when we lock them up in zoos? Do you really think they want you to gawk at them and take pictures of them? Well even in the minority people have begun to slowly unravel our lower intelligence mammal furry friends into what they really would want. Authors like: me, Erin Hunter, and Scott Westerfield have done our best to give you awesome books with page turning plots, eye popping facts, and a different view on the pet on your lap. I mean don’t you get enough drama at your job or school? Don’t you see enough of humans in your life? Unless you are a shepherd, animal hoarder, vet, or a zookeeper the answer is, yes. Science Fiction books based on animals are so much more engaging then normal fare because you have never seen anything like it. That is exactly why you are reading this post right now. So come to a science fiction world with talking animals near you. 😉
