Given its prominence in wargaming, it’s a little surprising that it’s taken as long as it has to bring an official 198X World War III DLC to Command. But now it’s here. The Red Tide battleset is out.
From now until Friday the 15, the ebook version of The Sure Bet King is free to get and keep. Enjoy!
I have a new article on Sea Lion Press where I talk about the infamous internet theorist Mike Sparks.
While I’ve reviewed it on my own blog, I felt I should give an updated review of Harry Turtledove’s Guns of the South on Sea Lion Press. So I did.
While I reviewed Mike Lunnon-Wood’s Long Reach a long time ago on this blog, I decided to do a much more recent review of it for Sea Lion Press. Finding out how small its niche really is makes me appreciate its strengths a lot more.
I’m delighted to say that The Sure Bet King’s ebook version is now out! Enjoy!
It was six years ago this day that I started the process to make the Creative Corner. Three years ago I started Fuldapocalypse. Blogging has been very, very good.
I’m delighted to say that the initial rough draft of The Sure Bet King is complete. There’s still much work ahead, but now I can enjoy a break where I get back to reading books instead of writing them.
What have I been at work on the past couple of months? The answer is a novel in progress, and one devoted to something that’s totally different from the typical scope of Fuldapocalypse. I’m making a mostly nonviolent “pop epic” (the greatest inspiration I can see is Sidney Sheldon) about a sports betting “tout”. Touts are basically people who sell picks/betting advice. It is not a profession with a good track record or reputation, to put it mildly.
I can’t give a formal arrival date for the novel yet as it’s still far from complete even in rough draft form, but rest assured that I’ve been hard at work on it. It’s a very exciting experience-this novel has been very fun to research and very fun to write.
