Update to the update…
Since the blog and/or server it was on was hit with a DDOS attack yesterday, as shown by the log below (20 is a ‘high’ load), and was offline all day, I’m not putting a new post up, per se.
I’ll leave yesterday’s post up, since I wanted to thank readers. And thanks to Barron for the work to get the blog back up!!!
I wanted to take a minute and thank all those who’ve taken a chance on my first foray into military science fiction, Rimworld- Into the Green.
While not burning up the charts, it’s still doing what I consider to be respectably well, for the little ‘advertizing’ that has been done (read blogged here and by other bloggers)

Reviews are now starting to come in, and are pretty positive, albeit with the inferred threat… LOL I’d appreciate it if you’d leave an honest review if you’ve read it. 50 is the magic number at which point Amazon starts giving it a little better visibility.
I obtained this book through the Kindle Unlimited program.
It’s a thousand years in the future, and some things haven’t changed. The Poor Bloody Infantryman is still the basic unit of diplomacy, and is still trying to take care of stupid officers while getting kicked around by certain factions in higher command. And the Flying Tiger Scrounging Club is still running back-channel operations to make sure things get done.
There are SO MANY good plotlines to develop! This is going to be a great series. If it’s NOT a series, it better be due to the SMOD.
Ethan Fargo is about to launch on his third military career, much to his dismay. For reasons unknown, but related to some higher up covering his behind, he was booted out of the Terran Marine Corps as an officer, and is serving as a senior NCO in the Galactic forces. Exciting things happen, and he gets set on the beach with a secret mission.
Monsters try to eat him.
The bad guys, who are also monsters, show up and they also try to eat him, but it isn’t personal.
The governor is a nasty person with nasty staff members. They try to eat him.
His sister is a maneater, but she just fusses.
There are a couple of cuties who have caught his eye, but he is indecisive.
Did I mention he can read minds?
Yeah, you need this book. Just buy it, okay?
Yes, there IS an intent to make this a series also! Working on the plot lines for follow-on books now.
