Paladero Book 2 is out, and so we do the dance of joy!

It’s here! After months of waiting, it’s finally here!

Captain America: Civil War is available to stream on Netflix Australia! Yaaaaay!

Oh. And also.

PALADERO: THE CITY OF NIGHT NEVERENDING! (Or ‘Paladero Book 2’ for all you googlers out there).

This requires many gifs of celebration!

Ugh. I think I have motion sickness now. Sorry about that.

But yes, the book is out, free, escaped its author’s clutches to be purchased, borrowed, and most of all read. I hope very much that you like it.

And to celebrate, Goodreads is hosting a competition to win your very own copy. This will be open to Australian and New Zealand readers through the month of February. I wish you good fortune, and may the odds be ever in your favour.

I’ll be back to post more about the book very soon, but in the meantime I’ll be working on the manuscript for Book 3. After all, there’s no rest for the wicked … or even the wishy-washy!

Happy reading.

eBooks, Advance Copies & Kittens – Oh My!

 

After last week’s post about its release, Vanguard Prime: Red Alert contines to pop up all over the Internet. That includes Amazon, where you can download it free for your Kindle right now. But in addition to that, you can now also purchase the digital editions of Vanguard Prime: Goldrush and Vanguard Prime: Wild Card for the princely sum of $4.99 each! (Or $4.71 on Amazon, which I believe is US dollars, so the difference is negligable). 

Phew. That was a lot of links.

In more Vanguard Prime news – if you follow me on Twitter you may have already seen this image;

Yes, I’ve received the advance copies for Book 3, War Zone, which looks amazing. But more than that, this is probably the Vanguard Prime book that I’m happiest with; it has the shortest word count but the most amount of story. I know for a fact that it’s certainly got the most amount of characters.

In addition to meeting the VP universe’s Japanese superhero team, we’re also introduced to the Resurrectionists, a shadowy group of neohumans whose leader has a mysterious connection to Agent Alpha. The book is still a few weeks away from release (official release date is August 29) but I’m confident that Vanguard Prime fans will love it.

I hope.

If all of this hubbub wasn’t enough to keep me busy, last weekend my wife and I adopted two kittens. Yes, two. The theory was that they’d be company for each other while we’re out. And that’s how we’ve ended up with Joanie (named for Christina Hendricks’s character on Mad Men) and Edgar (the name the animal shelter gave him that’s stuck…despite my wanting to call him ‘Ziggy’).

Joanie never stops moving, and Edgar is so cowardly he’ll dart away the second you try to photograph him, so it’s rare to get a picture of them at the same time. This is one of my many vain attempts;

That’s Joanie in front, bullying up to the camera, while Edgar cowers in the background by his water bowl.

We’ve basically sacrificed our back spare bedroom to these two little balls of claws and fur. I’m covered in hair, scratches…and love. In fact, I’m currently writing this with Joanie on my lap (and my right thigh throbbing from where she’s clawed it). I’ve not yet tried writing a novel in this position, but I get the sense that I’m going to have to get used to it pretty fast.

She won’t take ‘No’ for an answer.
