Happy Release Day! – Maraukian Wars – bk 2!

This year has been very interesting, to say the least, and after working from Jan to March with the fab Michael Chatfield in a stint only a few could actually stick to, I’m proud to say that our first co-written piece in his series launched today. 🙂 huge grin on my face!

When Mike asked me to help out on this series, I was a little hesitant. Already 5 books in writing in someone elses world is not that easy. But, I considered all my options and for those who know me, they also know I love a challenge. So, stepping up my reading game, I blitzed through the Harmony War’s and soo fell in love with the characters he’d created. I don’t lie when I say, Mark Victor stole my heart. After getting to know Mark and Tyler throughout the first 5 books, I was eager to dig in and create with Mike the visions he saw for them into the Maraukian Wars.

We had our fair share of life trials and tribulations in the 54 days we sprinted our asses off, but the results I think speak for themselves.

I hope you guys will love the extra I bring to the characters you already love, and I hope that there’s a few more which may also steal your hearts.

So go check these badass covers out, by the amazing Fred Gambino – https://www.facebook.com/fred.gambino.6 and pick up the series…

Going Wide – G.R. Cooper – Omegaverse

Introducing G.R Cooper today with his Omegaverse Series.

Cooper.jpg

 

Duncan Sheriden enters, at the bidding of several friends, into the virtual universe; the Omegaverse. As he explores the alien races, star systems and planets, he discovers a rich, vast, limitless expanse of possibilities.

From gritty fights for control of colonies with hostile alien and human forces, to interstellar trade, to thrilling hunts to eradicate space piracy, to epic battles between star-ships, Duncan finds himself drawn deeper and deeper into the virtual world.

As Duncan gains and evolves his online power, his ‘real world’ friends and activities take smaller and smaller roles as Duncan is, unbeknownst to himself, being targeted for special attention by forces he doesn’t even realize exist.

Check it out from this link 🙂 I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!

Why are we doing this, and doing it together? 

There’s been a lot of talk about this over the last few months, and for those who don’t know the reasons behind the move… it’s pretty simple.

Amazon has been trying to nail down on false reads for their KU program. And unfortunately, there’s been a slew of genres that were tagged, from Gamelit/Litrpg to Romance and Harem/Reverse Harem.

What that meant for a good few of my friends was that the page reads they’d been seeing for their books. (newly released books) were suddenly halved. In fact, more than halved in some cases.

In all the time I’ve been publishing my own Gamelit series, I’ve always had consistent KU reads, more so than my sales. So for the numbers that my friends had for KU reads to suddenly be slashed to less than their sales, something just doesn’t add up.

So some of us banded together and we made the decision to go wide as one!

I’ll be promoting these authors on this blog over the next week and sharing their amazing books.

So keep an eye out later this week, as I link in the first one! the fab RJ Castiglione’s!

Audiobook Review – The Tower of Zhaal

Straight onto the second! Excellent work, this one was so much better in my eyes because I loved where these characters went!

“Better and Better!”

I was glad that I had this one to listen to after the first ended. Of course, it’s a stand alone book and felt very organic. But I wanted more from this world. Glad CT Phipps delivered with this, I also believe there’s a third coming sometime soon. 🙂

I am not very up with Cthulhu and their myths and legends, of course, this just made me want to dig into this very weird and terrifying world.

The Tower of Zhaal kicks off with just as much action as the first. Where Booth and Mercury are kidnapped and taken to save the world. A Very weird way of asking, but I can also see why the society might need to do it this way.

What I really enjoyed about this, was that even though we thought Booth and Mercury couldn’t get more involved, the character development around these two was still exemplary. So deep and emotional that I felt for their relationship as odd as it was, and as loving as it seemed.

I still think every woman Booth comes across is one he’s been in love with at some point, and the re-introduction of his wife made this much more interesting. So many things to go wrong, so much to lose.

This book will defo have you on the edge of your seat, high action, high horror. Booth changes a lot, not just physically as he embraces the person he really is, or the alien that he is, but also on a mental level. And I really liked this about him. There was a great strength in him and it showed in his decision and of course, some non-decision as life just seemed to roll on around him.

I admit getting to know these characters made a better impact on me storywise, it flowed on from the first, kept me hanging and engage, and emotionally invested. The monsters were terrifying, the world so detailed I thought I was there…

When’s the next one out! I’m having a book hangover… Although I am starting on the super villainy books, it won’t be the same. : (

Great, great job. Thank you for the entertainment guys!
