Kill the bad guys. Get paid… a lot.

My latest novel is out today. It’s my eleventh published one, although I have two more in the drawer that drew some trad publisher interest when it was being shopped around a decade ago.

Sisters Sun and Blue are on the run from Earth, operating a mercenary company on behalf of a mysterious alien owner in another part of the galaxy. Many of the mercs are not even human, so when the company becomes embroiled in the repercussions of a crisis on Earth, the sisters have to ask themselves: what are they really fighting for?

This novel is part of the Four Horsemen Universe published by Seventh Seal Press, and if you like the sound of it, you can jump into reading this straight away without needing to read the earlier books in the series. Best of all, if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you can borrow the book for free. The characters first appeared in Contract Fulfilled (my story in the anthology: For a Few Credits More). I’ve written a personal field guide to the Four Horsemen Universe in the brand spanking new ‘Other Stories’ section of humanlegion.com, which you can find here. I do write things outside of the Human Legion sometimes, and this page will give you some details about what they are, how to get hold of them, and a little trivia while we’re at it.

You can find purchase links on the Other Stories page, or you can tap or click on the cover image to see an instant preview. There’s an audio edition forthcoming from Podium Publishing, but it’s not been recorded yet.

If you try out and enjoy The Midnight Sun then please let me or the publisher know. Better still, let the world know through an Amazon review. The more people seem to enjoy it, the more likely I’ll be back in the Four Horsemen Universe soon to write some more. And if you think it’s the worst thing I’ve ever written, then let me know that too (though there’s no hurry to tell the world that via Amazon 🙂  )

Back in the Legion universe, recon teams have been busy checking over The Battle of Earth this week. Just getting the first reports in now. Looks very positive, but I may need to make a few tweaks to get this as good as I possibly can before release.

And if you are American, and wondered how you would look if an illustrator drew you with tentacles coming out of your head, then you want to check out the Kickstarter project for Adventures in the Arcane: Cthulhu Edition. And if you’re not American, you should check it out anyway, because it is very cool, and it also happens to include a story I wrote set in Birmingham, England in 1925. You know, the time when the ancient demons started to claim humanity for their own. Click or tap on Cthulhu to go to the Kickstarter page where you can watch the video.

    Tim, congratulations on Midnight Sun! I just bought it and am looking forward to reading it.

    Thanks for acting as a herald for our dread lord Cthulhu… I mean thanks for telling folks about Adventures in the Arcane. We really appreciate your story, and I think your readers will get to see a new style from you. The Kickstarter is going strong, and we hope to hit our stretch goals.
