Excerpt from Gabriel’s Revenge – Chasing the Station

The Trilogy Concludes

“Closing, sir,” said Stirling. “Slowly but surely.” McTiernan clenched at the armrests of his command chair, staring at the main wallscreen that showed the computer generated image of their course. The icon for the Marcinko was inexorably drawing closer to the icon representing the out of control skyhook station. The computer superimposed their courses, showing …

Excerpt from Gabriel’s Revenge – Renay in Trouble

The Trilogy Concludes

The cot creaked again as Renay shifted her weight. Her arm was now throbbing almost as much as her head. After the tube ride, the next thing she remembered was this room, now, and she wracked her brain to try to figure out the timeline and which tube they took her through. Arsia Mons had …

Are books worth more than gas station coffee?

steve

Normally my blog posts are very reader-centric (book reviews, random thoughts and ramblings), but I just received a Twitter DM last night (actually several in a row) I really wanted to talk to someone about. And since authordom is a lonely profession, I figured I’d blab about it here and see what other authors (and …

Review: In Her Name Empire by Michael Hicks

cust5

REVIEW:  I have to admit, before I even get into this review, that I’m a fussy reader when it comes to genres. I like a very specific, narrow type of science fiction. I certainly read all types – Hamilton, Clarke, Heinlein, Baxter, etc. – and enjoy them, but there’s a type of scifi, I suppose …

Book Review: Game 7: Dead Ball by Allen Schatz

cust5

REVIEW:  I’m going to preface this review by saying I am a diehard Phillies fan, and the ’08 World Series win was one of the best nights (or two, if you know what I mean…rain…) in memory. The plot summary of Allen Schatz’s Game 7: Dead Ball sounded like an interesting story, but the fact …

Excerpt from Gabriel’s Redemption for #SampleSunday

Lamber and St. Laurent crept up on their first two targets, red outlines in their IR sensors showing the warm bodies huddled behind a ten foot snowdrift about forty feet away from the doors, where the other two figures stood. St. Laurent reached her target first, a man wearing a civilian environment suit. His visor …

Converting a Kindle book to Nook format (or How I Synced My Life)

There they are...

A couple of months back, I was sans e-reader. Yes, as strange as it may sound, I was a self-published author in e-book format only…who didn’t have an e-book device. For the past few years, I had been reading books on my iPhone. Damned convenient, no doubt (talk about read-anywhere), but hell on the eyes. …

Hands on with the new Nook Simple Touch e-reader

steve

OK, I admit it…I can’t keep my hands off new tech toys. I picked up a new e-reader the other day with the intention of wrapping it and giving it to my son for his 8th grade graduation present Thursday. Needless to say, the wrapping never happened. I will say, unequivocally, that he WILL receive …

In celebration of the new Nook, join me in promoting fellow authors

steve

I was lying in bed last night (no worries, this blog post isn’t going there) reading Game 7: Dead Ball by Allen Schatz on my Nook Classic (tip: go buy that book). As I swiped my finger from right to left on the awesome little color nav screen, I realized I really love my Nook. …
