ALT.Chronicles Legacy Fleet

Sometime last night another anthology dropped. This one is a little different and very special as a result. It’s already hit #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle Worlds > Science Fiction & Fantasy and we got there in less than 24 hours which may be a new record for a Peralta gig.

Featuring stories by Nick Webb, Will Swardstrom, J.E. Mac, David Adams, Ralph Kern, Patrice Fitzgerald, Kev Heritage, Jon Frater, Matthew Alan Thyer, Peter Cawdron, K.J. Fieler, Joseph Robert Lewis, Christopher J. Valin, and Felix R. Savage. Edited by Therin Knite. 

These are the untold stories from the Legacy Fleet universe – a universe of conflict , of alien invasion, and of human resistance and courage in the face of overwhelming odds.Spanning a time between the First Swarm War – and humanity’s first devastating encounter with the alien race – and the events of the Legacy Fleet trilogy, these fourteen stories chart the human drama behind an epic 75-year vista of Earth’s expansion in space, and the dawn of the Second Swarm War.Stories like these:

A man mentally linked to the alien Swarm weighs the cost of reaching out to them through the link, to stave off humanity’s destruction…

A group of friends in the Air National Defense discover firsthand the terror in mankind’s first encounter with the deadly Swarm…

A destroyer discovers a dormant Swarm carrier, that suddenly awakens…

A training academy cadet finds her legendary strategy in ship-to-ship battle simulation inexorably changing her own life…

A flight engineer begins to uncover the truth behind a decades old conspiracy theory, that now threatens the survival of the human race…

…And nine more stories, from the creator and authors of The Future Chronicles, the #1 bestselling speculative fiction anthology series on Amazon today.

If you loved the movie, if you loved Legacy Fleet, you’ll love the television series. Because here it is, the entire season, this amazing collection of episodes, of short stories–Alt.Chronicles: Legacy Fleet.

The early reviews are excellent too. Take for example:

People are enjoying the stories, that’s great news. Right now the anthology is selling for $3.99 US which is about a dime cheaper than the cup of awful coffee I just paid for. I poured it out and will replace it as soon as I can get to the good coffee shop. Take a good, long look at that cup you’re holding in your hand. Can you afford to support the arts? Probably.

DetCon1 Schedule

This upcoming weekend I’ll be attending the 2014 DetCon1. This will likely be the biggest gathering I make it to this year. It is the convention that is held in the States when WorldCon is off the continent. This year the North American Science Fiction Convention is in down town Detroit. Last I heard, tickets are still available. It’s not too late, you could come too.

Thursday 1700
Reading
Daniel/Eich/Thyer Joliet A Authors Tony Daniel, Raymund Eich, and Matthew Alan Thyer read from their work.

Friday 2000
Mass Autograph Session
It looks like the room is going to be packed with authors and artists. I’ll be signing books and don’t worry if you don’t have a copy. I’m brining twenty.

Saturday 1100
Vehicles: Past, Present, Future
Mackinac West Raymund Eich, Matthew Alan Thyer, Tony Daniel Vehicles past, present, future. Horses, steam, electric, gas and diesel, electric again. What about hydrogen? Flux capacitors? Where’s my flying car? Oops we missed the train! Dr. Phil (Philip Edward Kaldon), Erik Kauppi, Mike Substelny, Matthew Alan Thyer, Emmy Jackson

Also, it should be noted that I’ll be taking on the mantle of Card Czar all evenings except Sunday with a brand new deck of CARDS AGAINST HUMANITY (thanks to Paul at Heroic Knights Games). I’m not certain if they’ll allow drinking in the game room, but we’ll work something out with the bar if they don’t. Kitchen rules often liven up play. You should come by. We’ll deal you in. It will be awesome.

I hope to see you at DetCon1

Admittedly a Long Shot

The title of this post says it all, but that won’t keep me from trying. John Green of vlogbrothers youtube channel recently posted this video.

His book THE FAULT IN OUR STARS is currently number one on the USA Today and New York Times best sellers lists which is not only “bananas”, but some much deserved success.

And this success has made him wonder, “about all the books [he’s] loved that aren’t best sellers.” And better, he is basically offering the temporary use of his nerdfighter platform to help other struggling authors gain some much needed exposure.

Call to Action!

Want to help? Here is my call to action. We’re already a little behind, but I need your help to get THE BIG RED BUCKLE trending in the comments section of this video. If you’ve read it, you know this story is innovative, cutting-edge science fiction. No one else comes even close to this part of the SF pie. “Sports in space” is a small, but growing sub-genre.

If you have yet to read my book I understand. Consider bumping my book a personal favor. Feel free to call something of equal magnitude in the future (and then buy my book and read it).

Getting just that 10 seconds of nerdfighter time could make all the difference for me. It would mean that my $0.99 masterpiece would get eyeball time on a scale I can only dream of. All it costs you is a click and a comment (which you can cut and past from below). Literally, seconds of your time.

A Few, Public Words to John Green

Oh, oh, oh. Pick me! Pick me! Yeah, I know, you’re thinking, “who is this guy?” Just another dude trying to make it as a writer, that’s who I am. I’ve written a book, the first in a series, which needs some love.

You have followers, (1.7 million pairs of eyeballs at last count) and you’ve already said you’d share. Contact me in the comments below, and I will gladly furnish you with a signed copy of my first book in the standard format of your choice. Read THE BIG RED BUCKLE at your leisure, mark it up, dog-ear as many pages as you’d care to, and when you’re done, let others know what you think.
