September 25, 2018

Josh and Scott interview Chris Pourteau and David Bruns on tonights Monday Night LIVE! David shares his story going from the corporate trenches to becoming a full-time writer. It involves a supportive spouse, lots of dedication, working solo and with collaborators, and now a hybrid author deal. Chris introduces his journey in self-publishing. Nick Cole and other authors convinced him that indie publishing wasn’t just a vanity publishing thing, but a legitimate way that disciplined authors could get their well-crafted books out there.

This episode of LIVE! is brought to you by: THE LAZARUS PROTOCOL by Chris Porteau and David Bruns

Four lives collide as Earth stands on the brink of mass extinction…

Mother Nature is mad as hell. Monster hurricanes … freak sandstorms … roasting wildfires. Species disappear every day. Is humanity next?

 Though some believe our future lies among the stars, the American President funds the Lazarus Protocol—a last-ditch attempt to reverse Earth’s climate crisis through geoengineering. But the New Earth Order—a mysterious league of reactionary activists with sleeper agents around the world—pursues another outcome: the subjugation of mankind to nature itself.

 A brilliant billionaire who wants to save the world. A lunar engineer called home to bury her father. A disgraced veteran haunted by yesterday's mistakes. A US Army colonel, desperate to save as many people as possible.

 Four lives. One planet. And one last chance to save it…

 Brought to you by the best-selling writing team of Bruns & Pourteau, The Lazarus Protocol is the first installment in The SynCorp Saga, a new series of dark sci-fi thrillers about the corporate takeover of our solar system.

 Pick up The Lazarus Protocol to discover this exciting new series today!

This episode of LIVE! is brought to you by: Order of the Centurion by Jason Anspach and Nick Cole

“The Order of the Centurion is the highest award that can be bestowed upon an individual serving in, or with, the Legion. When such an individual displays exceptional valor in action against an enemy force, and uncommon loyalty and devotion to the Legion and its legionnaires, refusing to abandon post, mission, or brothers, even unto death, the Legion dutifully recognizes such courage with this award.”

Tired of sitting out the war on Psydon in a mobile office hab, Legion Lieutenant Washam agrees to undertake a covert and unsanctioned mission with a band of Republic Recon Marines. Inserted deep behind enemy lines, the strike force uncovers a surprise key to ending a bitter war. Now they must navigate a hostile jungle teeming with murderous alien rebels, pushing themselves to the limits of their abilities, to get this vital intel to Legion Command--if they can survive that long.

THE ORDER OF THE CENTURION is an all-new series of stand-alone military science fiction thrillers set in the GALAXY'S EDGE universe, ranging from the Savage Wars to the arrival of the Black Fleet. Each book features the legendary heroes of the Legion who forgot nothing in their earning of the Legion's highest honor.

Ep 3.39 - LIVE! KSM Roundtable - Worldbuilding

September 14, 2018

Worldbuilding is the key to making any work of fiction believable and is a fundamental part of any science fiction and fantasy story. Building a world that is immersive and real is hard work sometimes.

 

This episode of LIVE! is brought to you by: Psychonautz by Gentry Race and Justin Sloan

Alien-tech/magic systems, leveling up, and space dragons—all set to the backdrop of a fun-fueled Space Marine adventure.

When Marine badass Nathan Collins finds that their newly terraformed planet is under direct threat, he takes it upon himself to corral the colonists. He has his hardcore brother at his side, but it's not enough.

That’s when the new alien-tech exosuit comes into play. With the ability to thought-manifest weapons with new levels of badassery combined with Nathan’s never-back-down conviction, humanity might just stand a chance.

Colonizing outer planets in preparation for a defense against an alien invasion. The Universe’s fate is at stake.

Ep 3.38 - LIVE! with Craig Schaefer

Ep 3.38 - LIVE! with Craig Schaefer

September 3, 2018

Craig Schaefer's books have taken readers to the seamy edge of a criminal underworld drenched in shadow (the Daniel Faust series), to a world torn by war, poison and witchcraft (the Revanche Cycle), and across a modern America mired in occult mysteries and a conspiracy of lies (the Harmony Black series).

Despite this, people say he's strangely normal. Suspiciously normal, in fact.

Schaefer currently lives in North Carolina, where he can be found haunting museums, libraries, abandoned crossroads, and other places where dark fantasy authors tend to congregate. He also practices sleight of hand in his spare time, though he's not very good at it.
