Emancipated Worlds Saga

Brad Torgersen is a friend of mine. Fellow Utah writer, Army Warrant Officer, and all around great guy, Brad has won the very prestigious Writers of the Future award, and has been having a lot of solid commercial fiction sales this year.  Brad is like me, in that we’re in the highly-opinionated/conservative end of the writing business. In order to get some more name recognition/exposure, he’s taking a page from my handbook and doing an online fiction serial. (kind of like Mike Kupari and I did with Welcome back, Mr. Nightcrawler before the MHI launch). 

Brad is launching a new online serial. It is mil-SF, and I do believe my readers will enjoy it. Go check it out. 


UPDATE – Uncle Hugos and Misc.

Okay, I got the books Tuesday, signed them all Tuesday night, and then Baen had them picked up by UPS… OVERNIGHT and Uncle Hugos got them late yesterday. Don and the gang have started filling orders so you folks that ordered autographed copies should be getting yours over the next few days.

Why did Baen send over 30o pounds of books overnight? Because they LOVE you.  Baen is awesome. 

In related news, I did a symposium at UVU yesterday. It went well. I think everybody had a good time.

MHV has still be hanging out in the 300-500 range on Amazon, which is excellent. I found out my Nielsen Bookscan numbers for the week ending the 26th, and they were great. I’m eagerly awaiting the stats for the period ending the 28th.

In local news, my kids found a mouse swimming in my wife’s glass jug of left-over cooking oil.  They freaked out. Welcome to Country Livin’ my little suburbanite children.  I’ve got yard deer and house mice and nothing between me and Wyoming but a mountain and a bunch of trees.  Life is good. I eagerly looking forward to the winter, when most of my neighborhood gets a case of the Yard Moose.

The rough draft of Monster Hunter Alpha is DONE. I need to go through and do a bunch of little continuity edits, then it is off to RFA. Probably next week, depending on what I can get done this weekend. I’ve got a book signing at the Layton B&N, and I love that particular store, so I’ll be there for a good chunk of Saturday.
