Announcing Empire

Hello everybody!

I’ve got something exciting to show you today: a brand new cover, illustrated by Tom Edwards! It’s almost as exciting as the fact that this is the second straight day of cloudy skies here in Hollywood. Okay, maybe it’s a little bit more exciting than that. But it hasn’t rained in over a hundred days so the clouds are pretty cool (can you tell I’m easily excited?)

In any case, here’s the cover for my new book EMPIRE:

HOW COOL IS THAT COVER?! I love it soooo much. Tom Edwards is a true professional. Here’s a glimpse at what the whole thing looks like:
Yeah, pretty sweet.

“But Logan, what’s this book about?”

I’m glad you asked*. Here’s the blurb!:

Hayden Key is on his final training mission: two weeks wartime simulation aboard the venerable USTS Empire with his fellow recruits. The last step before starting a career as an officer in the Space Fleet. Hopefully the first step in learning something about his father’s scarcely mentioned military history.

When Captain Joshua Ivan, disgraced war hero and practically a relic like the ship he commands, discovers the president’s son is one of the new recruits, a dark secret from his past threatens to expose itself.

But it’s no longer a simulation when Earth’s long-time enemy invades.

The attacking aliens think nothing of one stranded old warship occupied by a has-been officer and an untrained lot of cadets. Captain Ivan helped defeat this force forty years ago, but now they have penetrated Earth’s defenses and threaten humanity’s extinction.

Captain Ivan, Hayden Key, and a group of trainees have to get back to Earth to help thwart the aliens forces and save their loved ones. But they soon realize that they have no backup, no hope…and no other option but to fight…

So there you have it! That’s EMPIRE. I’m still working on it, so I don’t have a solid release date yet, but it should be out around the end of October/beginning of November. I’m so excited for you to get the chance to read it! And for fans of The First Superhero, don’t worry, book 5 will be coming out this year. Just taking a little break so I can come back to the series fresh and ready to romp. Don’t forget book 5 is the penultimate one in the series, so it’s going to have to be extra epic!

I’ll talk to you soon. Cross your fingers for rain in Los Angeles with me!

*that was me. Shocking, I know! Even my posts have plot twists.

The Secret of the Supers

Hey there!

So I recently announced to my mailing list subscribers Book 4 in the First Superhero Series, so it’s about time I posted here about it!

The book is called “The Secret of the Supers”, and it comes out August 30th. I’m SO excited for it to be here, as I’m having an absolute blast working on it. Fingers crossed it’s just as much for you to read it!

Take a gander at that beautiful cover: The Rise of Richter - PSD Ebook2

I love the way this one turned out! So, you wanna know what the book’s about? Well here’s a blurb for ya:

Three weeks after she goes missing, Kane and his friends haven’t found a single clue as to who took Samantha and why. When Supers begin popping up with eyes that glow white instead of blue, it’s almost too much for the group to handle. They think things can’t get any worse, until they get the news that their allies in London need their help. Kane is hesitant to put the search on hold, not wanting to leave one of his closest friends behind, especially with the mysterious white-eyes Supers around. That is, until Athena comes knocking, demanding Kane pay the debt he owes her for saving Doug.

 
For reasons he doesn’t fully understand, Kane finds himself oceans away from the people he cares about the most, thwarting The Legion of Richter’s advance on Europe. But when secrets are revealed and he discovers exactly what The Legion is doing all the way in London, it’s a race against time. Kane has to stay a step ahead of the enemy if he wants to save London, Samantha, and maybe even unlock the secret that will allow him to turn the tide of war against Atlas and The Legion.

With only three books in the series left, things are about to be kicked up a notch for Kane Andrews and crew. You don’t want to miss this! Pick up your copy today!

May 17th.

Just a little over a month away! I really wanted to have it out in April, but my editor didn’t have an opening until April 26th, so there’s no way an April release can happen.

Alright everybody, that’s all I’ve got for you today. What a packed post! Go ahead and comment on this letting me know what you’re most excited about for The War of the Supers! What about the cover, it’s awesome, huh? Let me know!

Have a great day,

Announcement Coming Soon!

So since getting my website back up, it’s been looking a little sparse. I wanted to throw a post up here, but I have nothing that I can announce yet! That’s why I’m just throwing this up here to let you know that an announcement regarding The War of the Supers is coming very soon. I already have the cover art for it, I’m just waiting until I get closer to the end of the book before I announce everything. Once I get the book finished, dates set with my editor, and rewrite the blurb a bajillion times, I’ll be ready to announce. I’ll be doing a cover, blurb, and release date reveal all at the same time, and to my mailing list subscribers first. Then a day or two later I’ll be posting to my blog and everywhere else. So if you want to be the first to know when you can pick up your copy of The War of the Supers, be sure you’re signed up to my mailing list.
