Book Review: Meltdown (Mech Wars Book 3)

Standard

Hey Space Cadets, how’re you all doing?  I hope you’ve sufficiently recovered from your turkey comma, and are back at it?  Survived the dreaded Black Friday, without loss of life or limb?  I ate the turkey, avoided the shopping, and visited with my in-laws.  Now that the holidays are over, I’m back to the writing.  I should have an announcement on the release of my fourth and final novel in The Sleeping Legion Series soon.  I’m working on that new, super-duper secret project and having a blast.  The instant I can share more, I will!  I’ve got a short story in The The Expanding Universe 3 Anthology that’s coming out on the 15th of December. If you want tons of fun, for the low price of 99c, then pre-order it!  It’s a collection of some pretty amazing stories. Continue reading

Advanced Warning – Tomorrow for Cyber Monday!

Hey Space Cadets, I hope you’re all on the road to recovering from your Turkey Day food coma!  I’m doing well, and enjoyed time with my wife’s family!  Now that the holiday is come and gone, I’ll show my thankfulness by re-starting my healthier living goals.  I plan on building back up to my mile walks in the morning, and will add in some stretching.  I’m working on adapting my diet more holistically, instead of just dieting.  I hope it’ll mean I can keep it up, since it’ll be a lifestyle change, instead of a temporary culinary one.  We’ve started doing some meal prep as a family, so we cook in bulk on the weekends and then freeze it.  This way, even when I need quick meals, I can have healthy ones.  Finally, I plan to add yoga to the mix.  My doctor thinks it can help me regain some of my lost mobility, though I’ve tried so many things I’m a bit skeptical.  My good friends Jason Anspach and Nick Cole recommended DDP Yoga, so I’ll give that a shot.

Hey Space Cadets, today I have the privilege of allowing a friend and fellow author share his thoughts on a book.  I’ve extended this invitation before to anyone who wants to post a book review; I’ll happily publish your thoughts.  Because of this review, I’ve added this book to my TBR (To Be Read) List and can’t wait to dig into it. Lately I’ve been reading awesome scifi, and working on my super-duper top-secret project.  I can’t wait to tell you about, but until then let’s get to author Matt Herron.

Hey Space Cadets, today I wanted to bring you some awesome little science fiction films.  It’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these and I thought reviving it would be cool!  They’re indie productions, and very much worth watching!  I plan on posting another blog soon, but for today I need to work on my next super-secret story.  So here’s a cool film!
