Operation Breakout is underway.

Bloodied yet defiant, the Legion survivors emerge from the Hardit onslaught. THE FIGHT BACK STARTS HERE… Lance Scipio and the defenders of Fortress Beta City have emerged from the Hardit onslaught, but to liberate an entire continent is a far greater challenge. Costly mistakes will be made, and to survive Lance must rely upon the most dangerous soldiers in the Sleeping Legion — impossible warriors who should not exist. But whose side are they really on…? If you’ve been waiting for the latest installment of the Sleeping Legion by JR Handley, then your wait is over. It’s available now. What’s more, for a brief period Operation Breakout will be at the special launch price of 99c to help get us some bestseller chart visibility. It’s also available to borrow through Kindle Unlimited. You can click on the cover image to launch […]

Special launch deals end soon

I hope you’ve been enjoying the new series: The Sleeping Legion and Revenge Squad. The opening books have been at a special 99c/ 99p launch promotion, which is ending this week, so if you haven’t yet grabbed a copy then now would be a very good time. You can find the Amazon page by clicking on the cover images below.     Later this week I’ll be writing some more bonus material to go into the next Legion Bulletin, and some artwork downloads too. I know JR Handley has the pedal to the floor writing the next Sleeping Legion book: Operation Breakout,  and I’ve been writing a deadly Revenge Squad showdown with some LTB-10 combat droids (or Little Tin Bastards as they’re known) in Second Strike. When I take a break from writing the new Revenge Squad book, I’ve been sketching out the […]

Nick Webb’s Constitution deal, and my new book is out next week

One of the stars of the recent boom in science fiction literature is Nick Webb. Now, if your’re reading this, Nick, I would describe you as a very annoying kind of author 🙂 Not only does he sell a gazillion copies of his books, which come out more regularly than mine, but he also has a real job as a space engineer, has a PhD in experimental physics, and finds time to play Lego with his kids. How cool is that? Can this awesome individual possibly be human? I feel suddenly inadequate. I mention Nick because his most famous book, Constitution, is on a 99c special offer for the next 5 days.   I haven’t read Constitution yet, but I have read some of an earlier series he wrote under the name of Endi Webb (Nick’s initials are N.D. Webb), […]

Try out a selection of 0.99 Kindle SF & Fantasy books

Marine Cadet is on a 99c joint promotion this weekend. I expect if you’re reading this, you already have Marine Cadet, but some of the other books in the promotion look very interesting and some of them I recommend because I’ve read them and already know they’re great! Click on the image to go to Patty Jansen’s site to grab books from the full range of retailers.   You only have until the end of today to fill your boots. I’m still not well and didn’t get to my computer to announce it yesterday. Sorry. The promotion was set up by author Patty Jansen and it’s something she does every month in various forms and you can sign for more info here. I’ve read her book Ambassador. She’s a great author. If you don’t believe me, follow this link  to […]

Did you win a signed audiobook on CD?

Last month I announced the new Legionaries group with the prize draw of a signed Human Legion audiobook on CD. The winner of the prize draw is Thomas with a Comcast email address and who I think might hail from San Diego. Thomas, if you’re out there, please get in touch. I’ve been trying to reach you for the past month! For everyone else, fear not, I’m going to do another draw at the end of the month for a signed audiobook (on CD) of your choice out of Marine Cadet, Indigo Squad, or Renegade Legion. My publisher (Tantor Media) gave me a few but they’re running out, so I won’t be doing this regularly with the audio CDs. There are rumors of other swag that might be forthcoming, such as official Liquid Refreshment Dispensers bearing the insignia of one […]

War Against the White Knights

The fifth book in the Human Legion series is available from Amazon now in its Kindle edition. Paperback to follow shortly. As is Legion custom, I’ve set a low launch price for loyal humanlegion.com subscribers to pick up the book for a song. I’ll be raising the price shortly, probably next week. I do get asked whether it’s more helpful to me to wait and buy at a higher price, a question that I’m grateful that people want to ask.  Actually, buying now does help me because at this stage it’s all about getting the book in the charts and the Amazon selling algorithms so that people notice the book. Enjoy the book. There will be one more novel in the series, The Battle of Earth. No prizes for guessing where that’s set. I do plan for a collection of short […]
