It’s been a while since I share an update on my writing and other things that are happening in my world. After [finally] wrapping up Fallen Empire, I’ve taken a well-deserved week off to rest and recover. Building a new world is a lot of work and in the end, I was putting in 15-18 hour days to meet my goal of an early July release. Woot woot!! Yesterday was the first day I got back to writing…and it felt really good. I spent a few hours cranking out the next Eli chapter and Today, I will spend time refining and enhancing it. See below for more on Eli, a Ranger’s Tale.
Fallen Empire, Born of Ash, Book 1 is complete! The book has been formatted for print and eBook. There will be a preorder on this one and it should be up in the next couple of days. I am shooting for an early July launch. Audio will release in a few weeks. Book 2 should follow sometime in the fall. I can’t wait to introduce you to Keira and Gunnery Sergeant McCandless, Corporal Mendes and Private Harris among other new characters. The book will be available on Kindle Unlimited to all KU users on the release day.
Paladin’s Light, Tovak, Book 3 (the final book in the series) is currently a work in progress. Major writing for the book is expected wrap by mid-July, with a September release. Stay tuned for more.
Off Indigo Station (new Sci-Fi series) and The Tiger’s Fight, CILO, Book 7 are on deck next and will likely release early to mid 2022. The Tiger’s Fight will be the size of the Tiger’s Time at around 200,000 words. It’s gonna be a monster of a book and I am super excited about this one!
Eli, A Ranger’s Tale, Chapters 1-8 are up on my Patreon Page for all members of the Legion. This is Eli’s origin story. For those of you that don’t know, I am releasing this book one chapter at a time on Patreon. It is a great way to help support my writing and fill in the gap between Stiger books.

In addition, we will be doing more FB lives and providing additional video content.
Streaming on Twitch
I plan on getting back to streaming on Twitch soon now that Fallen Empire is complete. That book took a lot of my effort since it was the first in the series. A lot of thought and time goes into planning a new universe.
The Beast We expect to have the Beast back from Freightliner in July. The engine replacement is almost complete. They moved the RV out to a shop that can hoist it. The thing weighs over 30,000 pounds. As soon as we get it back, we plan to get back on the road to travel the country for meetups and conventions. We plan on chronicling our adventures.
Audible You may not be aware of Whispersync. If you buy an eBook, you can pick up the audible version via Amazon at a fraction of the price and save your full-price credits. As an example, when you buy The Tiger’s Imperium eBook, the audible version costs just $7.49 with Whispersync. That is a heck of a deal! You should check it out and if you’ve never listened to one of my audiobooks, it’s a great way to reexperience Stiger’s Tigers, while helping to support me at the same time. https://amzn.to/3sgNfTk
Eve Online Are there any Eve online players out there? I’ve fired up my old account and would love to connect.

Best regards and thanks for reading,
