Paranormal Yapping

Happy Thursday! I know, I know -- lots of activity last week and then this week...silence. Hey, I've been busy; Alien Collective isn't going to write itself, you know. (I WISH it wanted to write itself, mind you, but it insists on my taking an active part. So unfair.) Anyway, there's lots going on, so let's get caught up, shall we? We shall!

First off, later today -- Thursday, Oct. 10th, 7-8:30pm Eastern/6-7:30pm Central/5-6:30pm Mountain/4-5:30pm Pacific -- the Paranormal Romance Dream Team will be chatting it up over at Literal Addiction. The Team consists of moi, Caris Roane, Erin Quinn, and Erin Kellison. Not only are the four of us hella fun, especially together, but we're all giving away prizes during the chat, so don't miss it!

Next up, check out what Team Tynga's Reviews is daring you to read. (Okay, you've probably all read it. But just in case, I double dog dare you!)

Then head over to Two Lips Reviews to see what they thought of When Josie Comes Home and Deacon's Ark by A.E. Stanton (yes, that's moi...and for those wondering, yes, more installments in this series WILL be coming). 

Wondering just what's out there and what's coming, book-wise, for moi? Or just can't keep track of all the pen names and/or titles? Then check out my recently somewhat redesigned and even prettier Bibliography page -- it's all there!  

Speaking of pen names -- the Kaiju Rising: Age of Monsters Kickstarter, where my story is being written as J.C. Koch, more than fully funded, hitting all the stretch goals, even the super secret ones the authors didn't know about. Mega-thanks to all of you who helped support that, and the Clockwork Universe: Steampunk vs. Aliens Kickstarter, too. Really looking forward to being part of these and bringing some new stories out! (And, is that a new Kickstarter anthology just around the corner? I think there might be, so stand ready, because there WILL be tuckerizaions. Just sayin'...)

Going to the movies this weekend? Check out my reviews of The World's End and Metallica: Through the Never over at Slice of SciFi to see what I do and don't recommend, and why.

And now, a little business-type news. As many of you know, I write under a variety of pen names, including G.J. Koch, who writes the Alexander Outland series. Over the past year I've had a lot of questions about this series, 99.9% of which being, "When is the next book coming out?" I've been vague, unclear, or evasive because the publisher, Night Shade Books, was having major financial difficulties, and the books and authors were in the process of getting sold, reassigned, bartered, pick a description you like. 

The new publisher duo (don't ask) Start and Skyhorse and I couldn't come to terms on the next books in this series. But in an incredible act of business decency and wisdom, they've legally allowed me to do whatever I want with any future books in the series. They still have Alexander Outland: Space Pirate and seem intent to keep on selling it, which is great news, since I'm intent to keep on writing these books, particularly now that I can without certain restraints (like, oh, not getting paid and/or being sued), and having the first book available is nice for little things like series continuity.

SO, before you all race off to pre-order, let me mention that I haven't written a word on Alexander Outland: Space Avenger since the financial issues came to light (MONTHS ago -- and you can safely assume any week where you barely heard from me BUT I was at home/not at a con means I was consumed with this situation), so I have no ETA for that book at this precise time. What I DO have is the happy knowledge that there can now BE that book, and Alexander Outland: Galactic Gigolo, and any other stories I might want to tell about Nap and his crew. And, while we're at it, yes, more in the Necropolis Enforcement Files series will be coming, too. Night Music isn't being ignored, it just has to wait its turn (and that turn is after Alien Collective, because Kitty comes first, which she feels is exactly how things should always be).

So, onward we go! That's it for today, at least until the Paranormal Romance Dream Team chat later on, but as always, more's on the way. So, chat with some of you later, all of you enjoy the downward slide towards the weekend, and let's be readers out there! Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!
