I finished Frontlines #6, POINTS OF IMPACT, and sent it to my publisher. Now we do some editorial ping-pong, and then I’ll be able to share the publication date with you so you can preorder the book in VERY LARGE QUANTITIES.

I had to cancel plans for attending ConFusion in Detroit in January because I was still working on POINTS, so I haven’t been to any conventions since late October, but now the con season is starting up again. This weekend, I will be author Guest of Honor at ConStellation in Lincoln, NE. There will be a signing at Francie & Finch bookstore, which is a block or two from the convention hotel. I’ll be there for your amusenings from 1:30-2:30pm this Saturday, April 29th, so stop by to say hi and get a book signed if you’re in the area.

Next up on my List of Things What To Write is some Wild Cards business, and then I’ll spend the rest of the year writing a new military-ish SF novel that’s not related to Frontlines. (That doesn’t mean, however, that Frontlines will come to an end with the release of POINTS OF IMPACT.)

Between the writing projects and the convention travel, it will be a busy rest-of-the-year, but that’s how we roll here at the Castle Frostbite Magic Novel Factory. I am still amazed that I get to do this for a living. It feels like I’m getting away with some sort of high-level scam, but I’ll enjoy it until they find me out.

WOO HOO! I am hooked on Frontlines and binge read the first 5 books. . . I had them but just did not have a lot of reading time lately. . .

Can’t wait for #6!

Very much looking forward to the new book! I’ve already read them all twice and listened to them all from audible as well. Narrator is very good.

Your work ethic pumping these out is also very much appreciated!

Wish I could go to the book signing. Maybe you’ll come down to Texas sometime.

Keep up the Good Work Marko and Thank you for many enjoyable hours of entertainment.

Yay! I’ve been going through withdrawal awaiting the next installment. Please stay healthy so you can keep writing to feed our addiction.

Detroit is rife with Bronys, you didn’t miss much.

See you at Honorcon!

Really looking forward to book 6… utterly inhaled the first 5. Best space kablooey I’ve read in a really long time. Thanks for working so hard on getting these books out! 🙂

Absolutely loved 5. This is the best series I’ve read in a long time; and the first book I’ve had a hard time putting down in awhile. Thank you!

Thank you for dishing out such tasty helpings of kablooie! I look forward to the sixth course with Points of Impact!

p.s. and thank you for making the present tense work as a writer’s voice. It was weird to get used to at first, but now I can’t imagine the Frontlines experience without present tense!
