Staring Into The Eyes Of The Sun: Looking Back At The Last Ten Years

Image
This coming Saturday marks a momentous occasion. An occasion that, if you read the title of this post, likely doesn't come as any surprise. That's right, I'm talking about the ten year anniversary of publishing what would be my first Science Fantasy novel, The Eyes of The Sun.  I've had thoughts as to how I'd planned to mark this moment for a while now. At one point, I'd hoped to do a series of ten years later shorts, but given that the events of the series took place from 2009-2010, I wasn't keen on writing pandemic era tales. Especially given that if my vampires, with their natural immunity to damn near everything, and my research facility that had the brightest minds in medical science had actually existed, we'd never have had a pandemic, so what would I have had to write about? I then considered releasing the series in audiobook format. I got pretty excited about that, but the time and energy required were not something that I've had this year,

What's Going On Here?

Hello beings of Earth (and anyone else who might be dropping by)! It's been a bit since I've really done anything, but now, after almost 10 years of sporadic posts, is that really so weird? I think we've quite easily determined that what started out as a marketing means for an author all those years ago has managed the remarkable task of becoming something even more tedious and mundane.  But you know what? That's perfectly fine. There's something kind of fun and charming about constantly reinventing my purpose here on the internet whilst clinging to ancient mediums that have long fallen out of favor. So let's talk about what I'm planning to do now and let's not talk about how likely I am to stick with it. Okay? Okay! Well, first of all, you may have noticed that the last few posts have been me hosting multi-author promotions. Guess what? I'm doing that again. Be on the lookout for a Halloween promo coming up around...well...Halloween! Group author pr

 Today's the day! All of the books below are FREE today and many continue to be free all weekend*! As always, we here at Vampires & Robots Inc** have done our due diligence to ensure that we are being truthful, but as always, things happen. Be sure to check the price before clicking the buy button.   Happy reading! A small update and request: One of the authors who was meant to participate in this promo, Aryl Shanti (writing under the name Lyra Shanti) was unable to participate due to his mother passing away this past weekend. In addition to the understandable grief, this has, as is all too often the case, added an economic hardship. As such, I am including here the title that was meant to be part of the promotion, and I am encouraging everyone who is able to please pick up a copy or gift one to a friend. If you wish to do more, I encourage you to browse Aryl's Amazon author page for his other titles in a wide variety of genres.  Please click the image to purchase a cop

We're Doing It Again!

 Hello, guess what?  I'm hosting another promo.  That's great, but wait, there's more!  This time, you see, ALL the books will be free! With emphasis on shorts and poetry. But fear not! Novels won't be shut out. We've got those too, some familiar, some new. So join us this Friday, the 12th of August. Please share, if you would, to give us a boost. Okay, apologies for the abysmal attempt at poetry, but I think you got the point. This Friday, August 12th, right here on this blog, we'll have a whole bunch of free books from a variety of authors on a variety of platforms. And while you're at it, please do help us to spread the word. The whole reason I host these types of group promos is to give everyone an equal chance to get their books in front of eyes and I am VERY aware of my shortcomings as an influencer, so every bit of social media shares and word of mouth helps tremendously and I thank you for it. Truly.  See you Friday!
