No Marine Left Behind

Hey Space Cadets, how are you guys doing?  I’m doing great, we found out from Podium Publishing that our narrator for the Sleeping Legion Series will be Jeffrey Kafer.  He’ll be recording them this summer, but since this is my first novel to become an audio book I don’t have any idea of the turn around.  I know there is likely some audio editing that has to happen, so when I know more I’ll share.  Also, Operation Breakout is now back from the editors so the timeline for final publication is fast approaching.  Finally, the novelette No Marine Left Behind is for sale on Amazon!

Many readers of humanlegion.com have been in touch to ask whether JR Handley is a real person or a malevolent, alien gestalt intelligence from a hellish dimension intent on dominating our own. Others have inquired if the ‘author’ is really alive at all, suspecting he is really a rogue 1997 code branch of ‘Clippy’, the…

Well, the first round of copyediting on Operation Breakout is finished… except for the last few chapters. Long story. Why the last few chapters weren’t sent with the rest of the manuscript, I mean. The novel is about ninety thousand words (not including the last few chapters). The developmental editor informed me that the last bit, six chapters and maybe an epilogue, will be arriving via email later today. 

So what did I do to relax after another day of correcting punctuation, rearranging word order, and making sure any made-up foreign words (and one French fencing term — I did tell the developmental editor, Corey-the-human, not to argue with me on this, because the other Corey will back me up… Or rather, his story will. I never discuss anything writing-related with the other Corey — it makes him uncomfortable) are italicized properly? I started the second and final pass of copyediting on Project…

Marine Monday: Kaden Roy

Hey Space Cadets, how’s everyone doing today?  Things are great here, my new novelette No Marine Left Behind will be released on Amazon on the 29th.  I’ll be at RavenCon at the end of April if anyone is going to be around.  Not on any panels, I’ll just be a guest like you.  If you see me around, don’t be afraid to say hi or throw rotten tomatoes or something.

 

So on to our regularly scheduled Marine Monday! Today I was leaked, by our friendly neighborhood LegionLeak source, the official bio of Marine Kaden Roy.  Remember, destroy this message after reading it so the anonymous source can live long enough to continually feed us excellent intelligence!  Without further ado, here is the leaked document!

Now, onto the topic of the day!  The fine people at Podium Publishing recently signed a contract for the audio rights for The Sleeping Legion Series.  We’re getting an audiobook.  I’ll keep the information coming as soon as I get it!  In the meantime, I checked out their company and was impressed.  They’ve got some amazing voice talent and the other books they’ve done are fantastic.  I’ll have good company, what more could I ask for?

 

Until next time, stay frosty and don’t forget to keep your powder dry!
