First, Hi! Howzyadoin?
Second, prepare for AWESOME NEWS:
Happy Father’s Day!!! A Sword Into Darkness and REMO e-books are both on sale!!! There’s soooo much sci-fi goodness to be had for both you and Dad, you should tell all your friends and followers about it. Shout it from the rooftops (provided you have the training and appropriate safety gear)! ASID is on sale 11-15 June (on Amazon, B&N, Kobo, Apple iBooks, and Smashwords) and REMO is on sale 12-17 June (exclusive on Amazon Kindle). If ever you needed an excuse, you just got one, shipmate. Think of all the Poppas, and just follow the links above!
Cool news, I just made the final edits to the ASID Audiobook. And judging by how AMAZING it sounds, even if you’ve read it, you’ll want to experience it a second time on Audible. I hope to have it available before month’s end, and I will absolutely NEED your help to make its launch a rousing success. Ya see, nobody really knows who the hell I am, so if they’re going to shell out $20, they’ll need some good word of mouth. I hope I can count on you all!
Good news, everyone! I’m writing again. Just tossed down half of Chapter 1 for Demigod (formerly CoPilot) and the initial line is a corker: “The end of the world as Demeter Sedaris knew it began with a lie — her own.” Plus, I submitted my fantasy short story to the Baen Fantasy Adventure Short Story contest. The title is a state secret so’s I don’t taint the voting, but cross your fingers. I’ll let you know how it goes. And in other cool news, I’ve got two reviews for ASID coming out this week. One is from Carol Kean of Perihelion Science Fiction and the other will be the Publisher’s Weekly review that will either doom or continue my bid to win the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award (Semi-Finals). Wish me luck!
And in mild bad news (more awwww, than OH NO!), “Bumped” was rejected by Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, but they were encouraging in their form rejection, so I will be trying again. I’m not too busted up, because Baen has expressed interest, but I’m not stopping with just them. It’ll get sold somewhere. The story is too fun not to!
How can you cheer me up? Send people to buy the books on sale and boost those sale rankings!!! After all, ASID and REMO are only

What about Lancers? I’ve noticed that books with at least two follow ups sell better. You gotta hook the Binge reading crowd.
Just read a Sword Into Darkness; I have been reading Sci Fi for 40+ years, and this was one of the best!! Can’t wait for the sequel..

So glad you enjoyed it, Weps. I should have a sequel out in several months, but until then, you might consider trying out my collection, REMO, or checking out the audiobook version of ASID, launching soon!
Wes, not Weps. Dang auto-correct.
