I actually put this on my blog for me, not for you, so I can just glance at my phone instead of trying to use their app. When I’m not on these panels I’ll probably be in the Bard’s Tower booth signing books. (and I just noticed they spelled my name wrong) 😀

Armstrong and the Mexican Mystery

I have been looking forward to reading this book but my early review copy that was supposed to get here while I was at FenCon didn’t make it in time. But this is the release week so I’m plugging anyway!

This is book 3 in a series of fun alternate histories where George Armstrong Custer lives and goes on a wacky series of adventures.

Armstrong and the Mexican Mystery

More fantastical than Harry Turtledove, funnier than Eric Flint, and with definite shades of The Wild, Wild West, the celebrated Custer of the West series—praised by Winston Groom (Forrest Gump), Stephen Coonts (The Flight of the Intruder), and Rob Long (Cheers)—comes to its shocking—and hilarious—climax as George Armstrong Custer, surprise survivor of the Battle of the Little Bighorn, unearths the lost civilization of Atlantis and battles the evil Atlanteans for the fate of the world.

NEVER FEAR—ARMSTRONG IS HERE!

A mysterious gunman meets Marshal Armstrong in San Francisco with tales of lost gold, unrequited revenge, and an unsolved mystery in Mexico’s Chihuahuan Desert, inspiring Marshal Armstrong, Ambrose Bierce, and the rest of Armstrong’s loose band of soldiers of fortune to plunge into an adventure of fierce gunfights, criminal conspiracies, an innovative submarine, and an underground, secret superpower—the remnants of Atlantis—that aims to subvert Western civilization!

Can the malevolent, scheming Atlanteans be stopped?

That’s the mission for George Armstrong Custer, traveling incognito as Marshal Armstrong Armstrong, knight-errant.

Full of suspense, non-stop action, chivalric romance, and effervescent humor, this is a great place to enter the Custer of the West series!

September Update Post

This one is going to be real brief because I kind of forgot about it, and I leave for FenCon shortly.

Appearances

I will be signing books tomorrow night in Dallas

Then I will be the Guest of Honor at FenCon. There is a fan meet up. The whole WriterDojo crew will be there and we will plan on recording a few episodes with other guests. I’ll also be running another Gritty Cop Show game where they auction off seats for the con’s charity.

The next weekend I will be at Salt Lake City FanX and you can find me at the Bards Tower booth which will be selling my books.

Writing Stuff!

I am finishing up Tower of Silence, book 4 in the Saga of the Forgotten Warrior. It comes out in April. I’m behind on this one because I made a plotting mistake earlier on and had to go back and rearrange a bunch of stuff. Those are the breaks. Sometimes when you are writing a fantasy series, you just walk up the wrong hill and then once you realize it you can either walk back down and go the right way, or you can plow ahead stupidly and then get stuck in the mud and never finish the series… Not that I’m thinking of any particular fantasy authors as I say that.

Up next I’ll be working on Monster Hunter Memoirs: Fever, with Jason Cordova. I believe it is planned to come out toward the end of 2023.

There’s a bunch more stuff coming that I don’t have time to talk about right now, that I’ve mentioned before. Don’t worry. Still working on it!

There are also several short stories I owe people between now and the end of the year.

Release Dates

No Game For Knights came out earlier this month, and it rocks. Check it out. That’s an anthology of noir sci-fi and fantasy stories edited by me and Kacey Ezell. It’s filled with fantastic authors.

In Defense of the Second Amendment is out January.

Tower of Silence is out April. I’ll be doing a big preorder push like I did for the gun book when I get back from FenCon.

Lost Planet Homicide 2 for Audible is done, and I think it’ll be out in January, but I’m not sure on that.

Other Stuff!

The Kickstarter for the MHI Miniatures Game from Everything Epic is over, but you can still get in late on the Backerkit. It is moving along. They’ve been working on art and models and sending me updates. Once I’m done with these two cons I’ll get more of the artwork posted for you guys.

Grimnoir leather bound. After a couple years of nut kicks and people going out of business, Spellbound is up shortly at the new printers. I should hopefully have some really happy announcements on that within 6 weeks or so.

It’s been a crazy week, – In Defense of the 2nd Amendment update

One week ago the pre order went live for-

In Defense of the Second Amendment

There were so many pre orders in that first day that Amazon added it to their promotional emails and put a BIG discount on the hard cover. And good news, if you’ve already pre ordered they will automatically adjust it to the new lower price.

It has hit some pretty crazy numbers so far-
#123 on all of Amazon
#289 in Kindle
#13 in Non-fiction
#4 in Politics
#1 in a whole bunch of different genres like Political Freedom, Ideologies & Doctrine, Federal Government, United States Government, Political Conservatism & Liberalism, etc. And in many of those, the book was at #1 while the Kindle was at #2.

So now is a great time to order some extra on sale hard covers for your friends, relatives, and all the fence sitters in your life. 🙂 Please tell, your friends. Preorders are super helpful and ensure a successful book launch. I’m hoping this one can actual move the needle with some people.

Sadly, when a new political book blows up like this you get a bunch of rip off scam artists trying to capitalize on it. The first one is real, and rest are scumbag grifters.

That is pretty amazing that they’re already done extensive analysis and reviews of a book that only me and the editors have read so far.

I have had several gun store owners contact me about buying bulk copies to sell in their shops. If you are interested leave a comment and I will give you the information for how to order direct from the publisher. They do discounts by the case.
