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:
“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.
