Here’s something new! A trailer for Book #1 of The Charger Chronicles.

 

Book #2 launched!

Charger Weapon frontCHARGER THE WEAPON, Book 2 of the Charger Chronicles, and my fifteenth novel, is out today.

Many years after the Mahoud war, Charger reflects on his bizarre life, a simple mechanic who became a vampire with werewolf allies, fighting aliens from a distant solar system. It’s such B-movie material. Humanity created him because they needed a monster and he’s still protecting them. He does what they cannot, yet they fear and despise him for it.

A war on New Eden puts Charger back on the front line, but victory brings the bitter irony of learning that the Taskers are humans in bio-mechanical bodies. Then the ruthless alien Grays attack with the Night of the Black Rain, intending to destroy all humanity. Charger takes on the seemingly hopeless task of saving the human race once again.

He welcomes death, but the serene oblivion doesn’t last. The Prime Tasker resurrects Charger to wage yet another war and unintentionally recreates him with the powers of a god. A very angry god. The results are disastrous.

The final threat to mankind’s survival is a sentient, massive black sphere intent on revenge. Will Charger consent to save humanity again?

News flash

A quote from Quartz Magazine, August 19, 2016

This week, China launched the world’s first quantum satellite. So what exactly does this mean?

“[T]he satellite is designed to establish ultra-secure quantum communications by transmitting uncrackable keys from space to the ground,” Xinhua, China’s state news agency, wrote after the equipment was launched on a rocket from the Gobi desert. “It could also conduct experiments on the bizarre features of quantum theories, such as entanglement.”

And guess what? In Charger the Weapon, Book 2 of The Charger Chronicles, I use quantum entangled particles (QEP) as a means of space travel.

It’s so neat when science catches up to science fiction!

 

 

Nineteen days until

Book 2 of The Charger Chronicles, Charger the Weapon, launches into the world at large! September 8th is the big day.

And here is a quote from the book from Charger himself:

“His life seemed funny to him now, a mechanic who was a vampire, with werewolf allies, fighting aliens from a distant solar system. It was such B-movie material.”

Maybe so, but he has some incredible adventures!

Update on The Charger Chronicles

I’m just about to do the final edit on the second volume in the series, Charger the Weapon, and plan for that one to launch on September 8.

As to the first volume, Charger the Soldier, I decided that if I charge a little less than half what I started out charging ($6.99) I’ll probably sell twice the number of books. What’s not to like? For readers, especially!

So, as of today, the price for Charger the Soldier, on both Smashwords and Amazon, is $2.99.

I won’t drop the price again. After all, where else can you get from 6 to 10 hours of enjoyment for three bucks??

Happy reading!
