The Immune Series is the Kindle Daily Deal!!

I should've posted this earlier, but there's still time.

Amazon has made all four parts of The Immune series the Science Fiction/Fantasy Kindle Daily Deal today. That means you can all four parts for 99 cents each. Even cheaper than the Omnibus, which is normally $4.99.

ROAD TRIP! FIVE THINGS I LEARNED WHILE WRITING THE IMMUNE

Today I'm over at Chuck Wendig's blog, Terrible Minds, with a guest posted titled "Five Things I Learned Writing The Immune."

Chuck is a terrific author whose star is on the rise. In addition to his excellent Miriam Black urban fantasy series (about to be re-released), he's the author of the upcoming official Star Wars novel, Aftermath, set immediately after the events of Return of the Jedi and due out in September.

So hop over for a little discussion about the writing craft/life and some background as to how The Immune came to be. And then buy Chuck's books!

Enjoy!

My New Novel! THE IMMUNE!


And now for the big news about my new book, THE IMMUNE.

The novel, about a man looking for his daughter in the wake of a catastrophic global pandemic, is ready to roll out.


It's long, like Stephen-King-long, so I split the e-book version into 4 parts and gave each its own very cool cover.

Part I (Unraveling)Part II (Void), and Part III (Evergreen) are available now. 

Citadel, the fourth and final installment, is up for pre-order now.   

You can order the first three parts here for automatic delivery to your Kindle or Kindle app (download the free Kindle app to your phone or tablet and link it to your Amazon account.)

It's been a very long road for this book, and I'm very excited to finally send it into to the world.

Thanks to all of you for your support as I make my way through the publishing jungle. And please do feel free to share the link - I am not at all above begging.

The Slowpoke Variable

A couple Sundays ago, my daughter had a friend over to play.

They were sitting on the floor near me, chatting and laughing and putting together rubber-band bracelets or bead necklaces or whatever it is schoolkids are excited about these days. I had a football game on and I was trying to bang out some words on the new manuscript.

And then I overheard my daughter drop this bombshell:

“People call me slowpoke, but I like to take my time.”

She might as well have ripped my still-beating heart out of my chest and showed it to me. It was the cutest and most devastating thing I have ever heard her say and probably will ever hear her say.

I have called her a slowpoke. My wife has. I’m sure her brother has.

But she doesn’t care. SHE DOES NOT SUFFER FOOLS AND OUR PESKY HUMAN IMPATIENCE.

She won’t be rushed. Whether it’s her homework sheets or a craft project or simple coloring, she does take her time to make sure it is done right.

She’s the baby of the family. She hits a lot of the stereotypical checkboxes for adorable little girls. When she gets tired, she grabs whatever’s in reach and sucks her thumb. And so sometimes I admit that it’s easy to forget what she’s becoming.

A bad-ass.

I know one thing. I won’t ever call her a slowpoke again.

LEST I INCUR HER SLOW, METHODICAL WRATH.
