New Book Trailer – Blachart


Hello all, I thought I’d share my new book trailer for Blachart with you!

I did this, believe it or not, with PowerPoint and literally a couple of stock images. Some were drawings done by me of course.

Like a look behind the scenes? Well, sure! Here we go: More

New Release: “Blachart”, Book 1 in the Galaxii Series – 2018


I’ve been writing stories basically since I could hold a wax crayon, and this book is in that respect a milestone for me. Why? Well, you may ask that question, but the answer isn’t a simple one.

While you may recognize the name of this book, “Blachart“, you won’t recognize the cover! If you read it before, and were to read it again now, you would notice a few changes. For one thing, there are illustrations in color (eBook versions), and while the plot remains unchanged, the flow of events within are more refined and there is a good deal more story to it. The book is also a good deal longer than it was before – nearly twice the length as a matter of fact. This is book 1 in The Galaxii Series, titled “Blachart“, and the new version is now available via Lulu.com and Smashwords, and should be through their networks of retailers too, shortly.  More

New Release: Galaxii – Into The Abyss


“Galaxii – Into The Abyss” is an omnibus of The Galaxii Series titles 1,2 and 3, containing “Blachart“, “Demonspawn” and “Dead Beckoning“.

Due to the variation in international markets and differing distribution marketing requirements, it has been necessary to reissue some titles in various series in different print formats. As a firm believer that the 4.25 wide x 6.88 tall “pocketbook” size is the appropriate size for “real” novels, I find it disappointing that some international distributors do not accept this size, favoring the 6″x 9″ format instead. It is larger for one thing, and as a result decreases page count, making books that were traditionally “long enough” to pack a decent-sized novel in the proper size, seem much smaller and less appealing in the 6×9 format.

At 363 pages in the new format, the print paperback copy containing all three stories in the Galaxii Series still works out cheaper than buying all three titles separately! Hopefully the new size will allow bookstores in South Africa to start stocking this title on their shelves soon! “Galaxii – Into The Abyss” is available only in paperback and the original separate titles in pocketbook size – as well as the separate ebook versions will continue to be available.

Crisp, Quality Books Delivered To Your Door!


20170103-fedex-black-sunrise

This morning my bell rang, and I opened the front door to find a Fedex courier holding a delivery for me from the Netherlands! One modest-sized package, containing – what? Why, a copy of one of my own books of course!

I’ve been buying one of each of my books – after all, it just wouldn’t do to not have at least one of each of them on my own shelf, would it? Anyway, so this morning I got a copy of “Black Sunrise” – in very nice condition too – perfect, in fact!

Lulu’s print quality is quite simply brilliant! The cover is glossy, thick, and the colors bright and every line is crisp and clear! The pages are brilliant white, the print clear and perfect – and it smells just like a freshly printed book should!

Having already received copies of “Blachart” (2 copies), “Demonspawn“, “Dead Beckoning” and “Space Vacation“, I have absolutely no doubts about the printing quality of Lulu’s books, or the reliability of their delivery system!

I can’t wait to get my copies of “Space Sucks!“, “The Time Saving Agency“, “Dead Man’s Hammer” and “Loderunner” – they’re next!

 

So don’t you fret, don’t delay – head on over to the Crow Bar to order one today!
