Just a quick update, folks. I know, you’re saying "What? Two updates in one week?? How unlike you, AZ!" And you’re right. I am the first to admit, I’m more of a writer than a salesperson. But my greatest supporter, the always awesome, samurai warrior Landon Trine, brought my attention to something that I thought was too cool not to share.

Earlier this week, Inkshares had a blog post in which they invited the current top ten authors in the Nerdist Video games contest to pick one of their OTHER favorite titles. The blog post is here:

I was humbled and honored to discover that, completely unbeknownst to me, Prescott Harvey chose to showcase Fear Factory! Prescott is the author of In Beta, which has the fantastic premise of two NPCs realizing they’re in a video game, then learning how to game the system to make their lives better. You can check out Prescott’s project here:

Prescott’s currently in third and I hope he gets published. If any of you could toss him (or me) a pre-order, it would be much appreciated.  

Hope everyone enjoys their July 4th weekend! May your fireworks be star-spangled and bright --


Hello Readers & Gamers,

I know there are only two weeks left in the Nerdist Video Games contest, but I wanted to share something cool with you. One of my backers, Landon Trine, went and made a temp cover for Fear Factory. He did it completely unasked, purely because he was excited by the project. I can’t thank Landon enough. (But I can tell you to check out his cool project which is currently funding, First on Mars -- https://www.inkshares.com/books/first-on-mars)

I appreciate all your support, and wish you the best of luck with your own projects!


Hello Readers & Gamers! 

Just a quick "hello" to say thanks for checking out Fear Factory,  and to let you know the first chapter has been posted on the Inkshares site. I’m finishing up the temp cover design today and will be launching for pre-orders very soon. I’d love it if you ordered the book, left a review, and/or recommended the project to others. And I’d be happy to do the same for you. Let me know what you think of the first chapter, and I’ll keep you updated! You can go to the project page here:

I like the idea here, and if your fiction writing stands as well as the writing in your intro, we could be in for a real treat.  I hope you’ll get a sample up soon so we can get a better idea of this world you’re building!
