New Year. New books are here.

I hope you had a marvelous holiday season. We spent Christmas with my parents and it was great to see several generations getting on so well and relaxing after a hard year. I’m almost ready to release the season Chimera Company issues to Insiders (I’m hoping next week), but I wanted today to let you know about Legion alumnus JR Handley. First off, JR put together his first anthology a month ago, Backblast Area Clear. It’s got an Ember War story from Richard Fox, a Chimera Company universe story from me and plenty of other goodies. Anyway, I wanted to mention the book because in the US there’s a 99c Kindle deal that ends tonight (I think). It’s always good value, but if you were hesitating for some strange reason, then grab it now. Secondly, JR’s teamed up with his […]

New releases: Chimera Company Season Beta Issue 2, and my Cthulhu Mythos story

Attention: Legionaries! The second of the three-part micro-series went out in the Legion Bulletin Thursday night. Check your spam folder if you didn’t see it. The concluding part is next week. This is the story that features the Legion. The Militia-centered mini-series concluded last month. I’ve already started the main series, but I’m still listening hard to feedback. Thank you very much to everyone who’s been commenting on the prequel series. If you aren’t yet in the Legion, you can see old issues of the Bulletin and get a free starter library by signing up here. I’ve also written a standalone Chimera Company novelette that features some of the same characters for a forthcoming military SF anthology that features the kind of top authors who get to put ‘best-selling’ and ‘award-winning’ after their names. I should be able to announce […]

So long, JR Handley. Welcome, J.R. Handley.

Legion News! We are no longer publishing JR Handley. Following a major reevaluation of his life, the author previously going by that name wishes to be known as J.R. Handley. *Sigh*. In other words, I realized that JR has been published both with and without the dots in his name, and we’ve settled on the dotty version going forward as the most appropriate. Hopefully the changes will work through Amazon without causing too much mayhem. To celebrate this important event, his Sleeping Legion books will be 99c over the next few days, and this will be effective in Australia and Canada and discounted everywhere else, unlike the last promotion. If you find the books aren’t discounted, then wait a few hours and try again because it takes a few hours for Amazon to reflect the change. You can find more details […]

Chimera Company, Sleeping Legion news, and Legion comms interference

Attention signed up Legionaries… I’m hearing reports that some of you are missing the Legion Bulletins that went out this week because mail servers are deciding they are spam, even with individuals who open every issue of the Bulletin. Gmail may have place the Bulletins in the ‘Promotions’ folder, even if you previously told Gmail that it belonged in the ‘Primary’ folder (which you can do in the desktop by right clicking the email in Gmail, saying it should go into Primary, and then clicking the popup at the top of the screen that says you want to do this for future emails). Tuesday’s Legion Bulletin had the full edition of Bonaventure to download. That’s the novelette set at the time of Indigo Squad that I produced during the #WriteLive campaign, in which I wrote a new chapter in the […]

The Battle of Earth begins today

You can now read the story of the Human Legion’s final campaign. The Battle of Earth Part1: Endgame and Part2: Restart are available now in the Kindle store to buy, or borrow for free if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. Paperbacks are not yet ready, but should be by mid-week. I’m really proud of this double-bill climax and I think it benefited more from Recon Team advice than any other book, so thank you; it was a team endeavor. It’s been a while since the last main-line Legion novel, War Against the White Knights, was released, and I know some readers have subsequently come across me from my work with Revenge Squad, the Four Horsemen Universe or elsewhere. For both those reasons, I’ve written these two novels so you don’t need to have read the preceding books to enjoy them, but […]

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 […]
