Spolier Free Summary: Luck of the Draw by J.R. Handley and Corey D. Truax is the fifth story in the Four Horsemen anthology, For a Few Credits More. Ivan Petrov is a shadow of the man he was, and the man he was wasn’t much to begin with. Drunk, in debt, and in trouble with loan sharks, his life takes a turn when his association with said loan sharks makes him the perfect tool for Boudicca, a bounty hunter tracking a much bigger fish than a simple bookie. But Ivan’s trial in this new bounty hunter mission may just be the first step to his path to redemption.
NOTE: Corey and J.R. are both friends. I was also honored to be a beta reader for this project. These facts do not change my honest opinions of their work.
Character: Ivan and Boudicca are solid characters. Ivan’s arc is the…
Hey Space Cadets, how’re you doing? I’m doing good, I’ve been enjoying my summer with my sons and walking around the lake near my house. Okay, it’s a city drainage pond, but that doesn’t sound like something Walden would approve of, now does it? I mean, you wouldn’t want Henry or Ralph mad at you, would you? Okay, jokes aside… I’ve been writing and stacking books for the publishing stuff, and I have some stuff with publishers. And finally, I’ve been binge watching science fiction series with my sons. More specifically, the five seasons of Stargate Atlantis.Continue reading
Hey Space Cadets, how are you doing? I’m doing amazing and wanted to post another blog updating you on my comings and goings. I’m cranking away on my writing and hope to be able to share more with you soon. The co-author and I are playing with methods of kicking our speed up a notch and I’m getting back into the swing of exercising again.Continue reading
Hey Space Cadets, how’s everyone doing today? I’m doing fantastic, with some exciting news to come. Since I’ve recently posted an update on my last blog, let’s get right to the point of my latest blog posting! Yes, I’ve gotten bit by the interview bug! I host the Warrior Weekend Series, whenever I find a veteran to interview and the ‘SciFy Shenanigans’ interviews that morphed into a podcast. I’ll send out the interview form to any author that fits those niche categories. If you know anyone you wantContinue reading
Hey Space Cadets, how’re you doing? I’m good, trying not to die from this stomach bug. I’m still writing, but I’ve also spent a lot more time reading this summer and wanted to share what I have enjoyed lately. Here is the next installment in my series of book reviews. This review was also a discussion on the Sci-Fi Shenanigans Podcast, so watch for that to drop. My co-host will also be writing a blog with his thoughts on this collection, which I will share here as well. It should be fun to see two different reactions to the same stories.Continue reading
Hey Space Cadets, here is the next installment in my series of book reviews. I’ve been busy with life, but I am hoping I can hit the ground running once the summer is over and I can throw my kids at the public school system! I’ve got a few open projects, but Chris Winder and I are whittling that pile down! I hope to get back to publishing novels soon. I’ve been reading the stories submitted to the anthology I’m hosting, and wow there are some good ones! I can’t wait to get that to you this December!! Finally, if you don’t listen to our podcast, you should check it out! We’ve had some fun guests whom I’m sure you’ll love listening too! But enough about me, let’s get to this review!Continue reading
Hey Space Cadets, here is the next installment in my series of book reviews. I’ve been busy with life, but I am hoping I can hit the ground running once the summer is over and I can throw my kids at the public school system! I’ve got a few open projects, and I hope to get back to publishing novels soon. I’m debating whether or not to hold off releasing novels for the rapid release strategy model of marketing. Finally, if I didn’t mention it, my story was accepted for the next Four Horsemen Anthology.Continue reading
