Wednesday Weekly Roundup


I had 4830 words written Friday night. By Sunday afternoon I had 17690. And I finished the book. So it will be done this week by Mighty Editor and by next week I’ll be able to move to the next project! 🙂 Which is good, because I got two more workshops from a Kickstarter that include writing a story! 😉

I also hope to catch up on some reading while I explore what to write next. I want to write something for the Italian market, so you probably won’t see any other title in English this year. But the Immortaland Dragons will keep you company until november, so unless I can put together another Themed Collection of Original Stories for the Holidays, it’s only a month left! 😉

If you have a Kobo reader you can still get Dragon Riders in the September 40% off eBook Sale in the following regions: Canada, United States of America, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand! 
Visit the following link to see the promotion: https://kobo.com/p/september-sale! It’s on until September 26!

And I have a book in another storybundle! Check out these Heroines of Sci-fi! My books is from the Star Minds Universe, and it’s the first of the Star Minds Lone Wolves, the story of Icy Aya who tackles her first missions with grim determination. Adventurer, hitwoman, mercenary, bounty hunter – a captivating space opera novel! Or, in the words of our Mighty Curator:

The Heroines of Space Opera Bundle – Curated by Robert Jeschonek

What is it about space opera that makes us love it so much? The action, the exotic settings, the colorful characters, the alien species? The promise of countless adventures in the face of the great unknown?

Or is it mostly just the incredible cool factor of all the ships…the technology…the planets…the ray guns and laser swords? In many ways, it’s the ultimate escapist genre, transporting us to places and situations that dwarf our everyday troubles. And yet, at its heart, space opera is all about us, what it means to be human, and how we can triumph over our human limitations.

Whatever your reason for loving the genre, this bundle has what you’re looking for in abundance. The eleven books I’ve selected—each written by a modern-day heroine of the genre—are packed with space opera goodness that will propel you to the furthest reaches of the known and unknown universe.

In this set of books—including three StoryBundle exclusives and three box sets—you will meet heroes and villains, all larger than life, all roaming myriad worlds and stations and outposts on quests for survival or freedom or love or redemption. You will find yourself with enough thrilling adventures to banish every doldrum, and every one of them will take you far in every way possible.

If you love space opera, science fiction, action-adventure, or great writing regardless of genre, this bundle will light up your universe in all the best ways. Grab your copy during the limited three-week sales window, load your e-reading device or app, and launch yourself into orbit for some breathtaking, soul-stirring, and thought-provoking reading. â€“ Robert Jeschonek

Wednesday Weekly Roundup


And I got paperbacks! Both of the Ghost Bus Riders and of Crunchy with Chocolate! You may notice the paperback covers of GBR are not exactly the same as the ebooks. You can check the series page where they’re in the same image. The difference is in the positioning of the ghost bus, the image had a limited reach for the wrap cover, hence I had to move it around.

And a reminder of where you can find Crunchy with Chocolate, that includes my short story Dragon Life: publisher’s site + ebook universal link (paperback available on publisher’s site and Amazon). And yes, I’ve added it to the Other Publications page as well. Stay tuned for more, it’s not over yet this year! 🙂

For the second week in a row, I wrote more than 10K, so I might reach those 400K after all. Especially if I start on the second novel right now, with the first still fresh and out to a beta reader (and most faithful adviser – she was my offline beta before she moved back to the US). Still short of the original aim, but it’s been a weird year, and I’m not complaining at all.

Stay tuned for the Halloween Spectacular 2021 – did you subscribe to it yet? It’s coming really soon! More good news are coming, including a new title out at the end of the month, so stay tuned. I’m off Day Job so I’m working on multiple projects at the same time, LOL!

Now I’m going back to my neverending TBR pile of books (both ebooks and paperbacks) and my next writing project… have a great week!

Random Friday


I’m afraid this month Fridays will be for bundles only… I should probably rename it Bundle Friday, at least for now! 😉

Anyhow, here’s the latest bundle curated by Russ Crossley. I’m still amazed to be in such wonderful company. Go check the Dragon Tales bundle! You may have read Talwar&Khanda, but you’d miss all the other wonderful dragon tales! 🙂

And next week… Sword Wielders! It includes my Writers of the Future Honorable Mention novella The Hooded Man and 10 other sword wielders! Again in very good company here… And don’t forget that Vampires of the World goes live as well next Friday…

And there will be a sale too, actually two, but I shall announce them next week. This is the month of bundles galore… grab them now! 🙂 What do you mean you don’t have a BundleRabbit account yet? Go sign up right now and don’t miss on the currently over 50 (fifty!) bundles in different genres for your reading pleasure!

And if you’re an indie author, join the fun and upload your books… Have a great weekend! 🙂
