GUNSLINGER TO THE STARS now up for pre-order!

Hi guys! Sorry to be out of the loop for a while. I have just made the pioneer trek of my ancestors, except in the wrong direction (from Utah to Iowa). Still getting settled in, but I should be more active from now on.

That said, I’m happy to report that Gunslinger to the Stars is now available for pre-order! It’s scheduled to release on May 19th, across all ebook platforms. For Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBooks, and Smashwords, you can pre-order your copy now!

I’m super excited about this book. It’s my first novel since May 2016, and if it does well enough, I’d like to expand it into a trilogy. Either way, it’s definitely taken my writing in a new direction, and I think you’re really going to enjoy it. If I had to pitch it in one sentence, I’d say that it’s Monster Hunter International meets Guardians of the Galaxy.

Just a short post for now, but I’ll be sure to let you guys know what I’m up to as I get back into the swing of things. Thanks for reading!

About the Book

The name’s Sam Kletchka. Perhaps you’ve heard of me: captain of the Star Runner, military contractor for Earthfleet, and interstellar privateer. But before all that, I was a hired gun, freelancing across the galaxy one gunslinging job at a time.

This, my friends, is how I went from being stranded in the armpit of the galaxy to becoming the luckiest human being in the universe. Not that it was easy, of course. I’ve looked death in the face so often, he’s practically an old buddy of mine. But when all your worst enemies are immortal, that’s a buddy you want on your side.

Stay frosty, my friends. You never know what you’ll find at the next star.

This book is rated T! according to the AO3 content rating system.

SSF-IV: FRIENDS IN COMMAND now available for pre-order!

Hi guys! Great news! Friends in Command (Sons of the Starfarers: Book IV) is now up for pre-order on Kindle, Nook, Smashwords, Kobo, and iBooks! The ebook goes live on July 1st (which coincidentally happens to be the 152nd anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg), but if you pre-order it now, you can have it delivered automatically to your ereader of choice when it’s released.

Over the next few weeks, I’ll post some 300 word excerpts to give you guys a taste of it. This book has been a looong time coming, but I’m now confident that this is a book I can be proud of.

At 42,000 words, Friends in Command is more of a short novel than a novella. The later books in this series keep getting longer, and I suspect that trend will continue until the end. However, I can promise you definitively that there will be no more than nine books in this series. Even if the last book is the size of a freaking Sanderson novel (unlikely, but possible), there will only be nine books, and each book will cost no more than $2.99 for the ebook version ($5.99 for the omnibus editions).

So yeah, check it out!

The war for the Outworlds is on. The Imperials may have lost the first round, but they’re back—and this time, a ragtag flotilla isn’t going to stop them.

When Aaron recieves a captain’s commission in the new Outworld Confederacy, Mara is his natural choice for second in command. But Mara never expected to live past the first few battles. She only joined the resistance to avenge her father, and fears the monster she’s starting to become. The only thing she has left to live for now is her friends.

The Imperials aren’t the only enemy in this war, though. The friends must face a threat from within in
