Call for ARC Readers

Standard

Hey Space Cadets, I wanted to let you about a chance to get a free copy of one of the anthologies I’ll be in later this year. We’re looking for ARC readers to get advanced copies of the Aliens Anthology being put out by Castrum Press! I’ve mentioned that I was submitting one of my short stories, and it was accepted! Are you interested in reading this and sharing your opinions about it on launch day. If so, email me at jrhandley@jrhandleyinc.com and we’ll get you added to the list! Continue reading

Indie SciFy Video #4

Hey Space Cadets, today I wanted to bring you some awesome little science fiction films.  They’re indie productions, but still worth the watch!  I plan on posting more of these to entertain you while I’m buried deep in my bunker working.  The ARC copies were sent out, and I’ll let you know when the novel goes live.

 

 

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

Calling ARC Readers

Standard

Hey Space Cadets, we’ve just finalized the third book in the Sleeping Legion Series, Operation Breakout.  It will go live later this month, and we’re looking for a few brave warriors to read the advance copy.  In exchange, I would ask you to consider leaving reviews on Amazon.  GoodReads too, if you’ve an account!  I value your opinion, so feel no pressure to be anything but as honest as you normally are on your reviews.  These reviews are what Amazon uses to determine the visibility authors get, and are thus crucial.  As advance readers, you play an important role in the publication process.  So I’m playing the bugle, will you answer the call?  If so, contact me here!  Just have the subject mentioning the request for an ARC copy!  Looking forward to getting into the trenches with you!

Hello Space Cadets, how are you doing today?  I’m doing great, doing the punch list of my wife’s ‘Honey Do List,’ and working on Operation Breakout and various other things for boss man to help market The Legion Awakes and Fortress Beta City.  I wanted to finish Operation Breakout by Christmas Eve, but it clearly didn’t happen.  I’ve moved the deadline for myself to January 31, 2017 and hope that I won’t be cutting that one close.  I’ve also fallen in love with next series, which I’ll tentatively call The Odera Chronicles.  This series came out of the short story I wrote for the Roswell Anthology that I’ve talked about.  It’s currently with my editor, who is doing a quick look-through for me.  I know that prolific author Dean Wesley Smith teaches us that the world is waiting with baited breath for the release of the next big thing in military science fiction, the next big pulp author.  I hope my novels will fill that niche!  To tide you over, as a sort of appetizer to greatness, I wanted to tell you about an opportunity to help other science fiction authors. 

 

One of the up and coming small publishing houses, Space Dock, is seeking dedicated ARC readers.  An ARC is an advanced reader copy, and is given out by authors for reviews of their books.  These reviews are crucial for visibility, and writers live and die by them.  Good, bad or indifferent, just write the dang review!  Since Space Dock is out of the UK, they’d likely be sending out eBook copies, but for most of us that isn’t an issue.  If this sounds like something you’re interested in, click here.

 

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