NOCTURNAL Episode #40

Bryan Clauser and Pookie Chang are at San Francisco General Hospital. They suspect that Chief of Police Amy Zou — the most powerful cop in The City — is crooked, and about to turn Jebediah Erickson over to the murderous cult known as Marie’s Children. Erickson is the vigilante killer “Savior.” A fight with Bryan left Erickson in critical condition, and the old man is now a sitting duck for Sly, Pierre, Sucka and Rex, who all want the old man dead.

ALIVE sent to editor

(a.k.a., "Damn, it feels good to be a gangster")

ALIVE by New York Times best-selling author Scott Sigler

Boom! I say, I say, boom!

This is one of the best feelings in the biz, people — sending off a completed manuscript to an editor. We’re ballparking Summer 2015 for this release, but I can’t say for sure until the editor at Del Rey does his thing.

This is effectively the final draft, as he [...]

NOCTURNAL Episode #36

Aggie James was kidnapped from the Streets of San Francisco, held captive in the White Dungeon, and forced to watch horrible things. Hillary, one of Marie’s Children, promised Aggie a means of escape: in this episode, we learn the price of that promise.

Bryan Clauser has learned more of his true nature, and learned that he must protect Jebediah Erickson, the man known as The Savior. Joined by the grandfather/grandson team of Alder and Adam Jessup, he is on his way to San Francisco General Hospital, where Erickson is being held under high security in the mental health wing.

NOCTURNAL Episode #35

We’ve seen Rex change from a bullying victim, the smallest and weakest kid in school, into a dealer of death, a leader, and the chosen one of Marie’s People. For nearly two centuries, his people have lived in fear of extinction, lived like insects in the dirt. How did they come to live beneath the streets of San Francisco?

NOCTURNAL Episode #34

Bryan knows of his connection to Marie’s Children, but he still doesn’t have any real answers. There is one place he knows he can get them: from Savior’s weapons maker, the grandfather/grandson team of Jebediah and Adam Jessup. Rex Deprovdechuk has taken his place as the the leader of Marie’s Children, but — like Bryan — there is much still to learn.

Vote on the Krakens helmet for THE CHAMPION

Galactic Football League Book IV is THE CHAMPION, and you can vote on the helmet in this YA / young adult series.

Junkies, sometimes teams update their helmets. Your favorite NFL team’s lid has likely gone through a few changes: some are dramatic, some are subtle. The Ionath Krakens are considering a helmet re-design for the 2686 season, and team owner Gredok the Splithead has decided to leave it up to you, the fan.

We’ve had problems with overzealous fans “stuffing the ballot box” in previous polls, so you have to have a registered profile to vote. You get one vote. We’ll check IPs if we have to (but we don’t want to). We love you all, but you’re crazy with the ballot-box stuffing, so get your one vote in and let the fans decide!

STEPS TO VOTE:
1) Sign into your account on this site (or create one by clicking here).
2) Put a comment on this post with one of the following choices: Current, Modified #1 or Modified #2

We’ll close the poll at midnight Eastern time on Sunday, June 22. The winning design will be included in the book’s text. Boom!

GoooooOOOO KRAKENS!
