Signed Copies for Christmas

 

Xmas-Book-Sale

Turns out springing a surprise book signing for the one-day on-base garage sale with no real notice… Poor planning.

That’s why I’m opening the flood gates again right now.

(Also not great planning… Sorry, but I’m a very busy man!)

Like the poster says, if you want a signed copy, come and get it! If you’re on base here on Yokosuka, easy peasy. If you’re not and you’d still like one, it probably won’t make it in time for Xmas. But we can try! You just have to pay a little extra cash for the price of shipping and hope that Santa Claus is driving the mail truck…

Write me at jdbrink(at)brinkschaostheory.com or use the contact form on the “contact” page. Payable in cash if in-person or by Paypal if not.

Not on Amazon: 9 Superhero Ebooks for 6 Bucks

boxset

Just in time for Christmas, here’s a bundle deal for you. If you’ve been curious about my work, or are already a fan who’s been looking for more but not sure where to start, start here!

I decided to throw everything I produced in 2016 into one deeply discounted book bundle for an end of the year explosion. 

Uh, explosion of fiction, that is.

The Swords, Superheroes, and Space Opera Bundle. Available on BundleRabbit, B&N, iBooks, and Kobo.

And NOT available, you guessed it, on Amazon. This one is for the little guys, like you and me. They’re getting enough business this time of year.

You can get to all of the other retailers from the Bundle Rabbit site. Just hit the “BUY NOW” button.

But an advantage of buying right there on Rabbit is that you can choose to donate 10% of your purchase money to a charity. Especially nice this time of year! I have selected the Wounded Warrior Project and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, both charities that mean a lot to me, personally.

(I also get a bigger chunk of your pie if you buy on Bundle Rabbit, since I don’t have to share it with the other retailers. In case you want to support me, as well, over them.)

With all the traveling and downtime you’ll have this holiday season, you’ll want to grab plenty of quality entertainment. And this is it! Enough to keep you turning pages well into 2018!

The normal total price for all these titles adds up to $35! But you can get this giant-sized file of fictitious fun for a whopping grand total of $5.99!

But only for a limited time. This is an end of 2017 bundle, which means once we start wading into 2018, this book deal is going to go the way of the do-do. So do-don’t mess around, buy it today! (okay, that was a terrible wordplay. Sorry. None of that shit in the books, I swear!)

bundle2017mini

A few of these books aren’t exactly, strictly 2017 material. Say, about 500 pages of it. (Which still leaves hundreds more!) Tarnish: Thunderstrike Edition was a book I published a few years ago, decided to unpublish, and then recently decided to throw back into the world. It contains the entire Tarnish Trilogy and the prequel of the series. Four books in one! And that’s just one book of the nine!

The Thorne Legacy is the first installment of the Cold Stars series of sci-fi stories, and since The Scythe of Kronos came out this year (book 2) I figured I should put that in there too.

Also, I must confess to a couple of repeats in the collection overall. Medicine Man, Frozen Heart, and Puppet Theatre were published as individual stories and were also included inside bigger triple-story collections. So they come up twice each. But that still leaves hundreds of pages of single-appearance material, so no biggie.

Happy reading and Merry Christmas! (Or Happy Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or… insert your preferred winter holiday here. They’re all good ones!)

Thanksgiving Treat: Free Superheroes in Time for Justice League and Thor

Just in time for Superhero season–oh, and Thanksgiving and Black Friday too. All these occasions combined, plus my desire to try out BookFunnel as a free ebook delivery service.

MASKS-Kindle

So right now (and in the near future) you can click on this easy link and–BAM!–go straight to the landing page to download an epub or mobi/kindle file for Masks. Here’s the story on the story:

A doomsday cult has risen in Mesa City.

Signs of the Never-Ending Serpent haunt alleyways and nightmares, and the police seem powerless to stop it.  Medicine Man and Coyote stood against them and Coyote paid the ultimate price.  Her partner hasn’t been seen since.  Gone off the deep end, they say.

Is there no one who can save us from the End of Days?

Red Mantis doesn’t have a lot of experience, but he’s no stranger to combat.  And the mysterious Shadow Puppet appears impervious to death and everywhere at once.  But when faced with the true horrors of the Never-Ending Serpent, will these rookie saviors prove friends or foes?

Nakai and Nizoni Proudtree are Native American kids growing up on the wrong side of Mesa City, where it’s not cool to root for superheroes.  No wonder: the patron cape of the neighborhood is currently on a rampage.  Probably not a good idea to steal his car, then, even if it is for the right reasons…

Masks is a triple play of action, adventure, and pure pulp fun.  Combining the classic conventions of the genre with gritty new twists, this trio of superheroic tales is sure to please comic book fans young and old.  The featured story “Medicine Man” also earned an honorable mention in the Writers of the Future Contest.

So THANK YOU for reading, HAPPY HOLIDAYS, good luck fighting the starving masses on Arena Day (Black Friday), and when you’re all done, sit back and relax with a free digital copy of Masks!

Just in Time for Thor: Ragnarok

dmg

Is it that time already?! The movie kind of snuck up on me. I’ve been busy.

But that’s not the only surprise I found tonight…

I had submitted a superheroic story to Steve Beaulieu not long ago and didn’t know what to expect after that. Probably my own fault for not taking the time to pay more attention. And were it not for my wife posting a silly picture on Facebook and telling me to check it out, I would not have bothered to go on there (I hates me some Facebook) and, therefore, would not have seen the update from Steve saying that the book was coming out next week!

So as you, me, and every other nerd in the universe gear up for Thor: Ragnarok, you might consider a collection of new superhero–and supervillain--stories coming out at the same time.

Me and 12 other writers all have great tales to tell in Collateral Damage.  There’s also a paired collection of 12 misadventures from the bad guys’ points of view called Ha-Ha-Ha. 

hahaha

Both of these are up for pre-order on Kindle Unlimited for only $0.99 right now.

But wait, there’s more!

What a nice surprise, just in time for another superhero movie season!

Speaking of which, I’ll have a fun picture to share on Halloween (or the day after). Assuming I can squeeze into my damn costume after this week! (Been doing a lot of sitting in class and eating greasy shit. Not pretty…)

 

Still Working on New Life — Some Reading While You Wait

While you wait for what?  I don’t know.  Sounded good when I typed it.

summer3

Most of my time is being put into planning out the next chapter of my and my family’s lives.  I know anticipate leaving Japan in mid-January and 10 days later be effectively out of the Navy.  (Or at least on terminal leave.)  There’s a lot to figure out, and it isn’t easy when you’re thousands of miles away.

In the meantime, here’s a new ebook bundle with two of my books in it!  You can find it and links to your favorite retailers by clicking here.

Book Bundle Mania

fullboxset-xI actually have SEVEN book bundles going at the moment.

That’s something like 100 books you can buy for whatever chump change happens to be in your pocket!  

Of course, you don’t have to buy them all!  There are different bundles grouped together by genre and theme.  Mysteries, scary stuff, sci-fi, superheroes, and more.

What is a “book bundle”?  It’s when multiple stories and/or novels from multiple authors with a common theme or genre all band together to offer you a big burst of books for super cheap.  And they’re available on several book retail sites, whether you prefer Amazon, B&N, iBooks, Kobo, what-have-you.

The following bundles have my books in them:

Finding the Detectives

Capes, Masks, and Spandex

Crimes, Capers, and Rule-Breakers

Heroic Tales

Out of This World

Summer in the City 

Duty, Honor, Country

There may even be one or two more with my stuff still floating around from last year.

But you can browse all the current bundles at BundleRabbit.com by clicking here. 

(Updated on OCT 26 — I now have SEVEN bundles, not SIX. Duty, Honor, Country, baby!)
