Book Review: Infliction (Mech Wars Book 4)

Standard

Hey Space Cadets, how’re you all doing?  I hope you’ve sufficiently recovered from your cabin fever and winter doldrums?  Summer seems to finally be in the air, and in the south of the US of A that means asphyxiation by pollen! I managed to survive the dreaded yellow death and lived to tell about it.  I’ve got my new glasses and can finally read again, though I fought off the doctor’s recommendation of bifocals.  Now the intemperate weather has again made sane people hide from the seasons I’m back to the writing.  Continue reading

Book Review: Stigers Tigers (Chronicles of an Imperial Legionary Officer Book 1)

Standard

 

Hey Space Cadets, here is the next installment in my series of book reviews. I’m just coming out of a reading slump. Lately, life has been chaotic, but now I’m back in the saddle and wanted to share what I just read! Audiobooks have become my friend as I take advantage of the gorgeous summer weather. I don’t normally review books outside of the science fiction genre, though I read plenty of them as well, this one was a military fantasy novel, so I felt like it fit with my brand. And let’s be real, I love nerding out over books! Plus, I know that the author has a new science fiction story coming out, so I wanted to see what Marc was working with! Continue reading

WARRIOR WEEKEND: James S. Aaron

JR Handley

Hello Space Cadets! Today, I wanted to introduce you to another author from my Warrior Weekend Interview Series, James S. Aaron. He’s the author of The Sentience Wars series, which takes place in M.D. Cooper’s Aeon 14 universe. With three books published, the five-book series will take readers from 2900 to 3200, as sentient AI break free of humanity. A native of Oregon, Aaron joined the U.S. Army in 1993 at the tender age of seventeen and stuck around until 2005, serving as both enlisted and officer. Aaron is a member of the Science Fiction Writers of America and currently works in law enforcement. Aside from the normal stuff writers do, he also plays with solar power and aquaponics, protects his seventeen chickens from hawks and his poop gobbling Corgi, and curses the deer who chow on his garden.

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

Book Review: Dynamo (Mech Wars Book 2)

Hey Space Cadets, here is the next installment in my series of book reviews. As I’ve mentioned earlier, I’m a member of the TRMN. It’s a fan club for the Honor Harrington Universe by David Weber, and they do contests for their members all the time. There is a reading contest going on recently, and we get points for page reads. I’m thrilled that it prompted me to read more, as I’ve let writing get in the way of reading!  In addition to reading more this month, I’m working on the editorial revisions for book four of The Sleeping Legion Series.  Finally, if you haven’t read it, Operation Breakout is live!

 LegonnaireHey Space Cadets, I just want to bring you some news about a book sale!  I figured I’ll do these posts whenever a book I reviewed or loved is on sale.  Spreading the word about good books is just the kind of community I hope to build on this blog, so I’ll shout the good ones from the roof tops!  This time, I wanted to let you know that a book I recently reviewed, Powered by Scott Bartlett, is on sale.  It has dropped from USD 2.99 to USD 0.99, quite the bargain!  Scott’s special sale is to celebrate the launch of the third book in this series, Meltdown, so I figured it was worth mentioning!!  Speaking of the new books, the third book in the series is ALSO on sale for $0.99 for a short while so check out the series!
