New Audiobooks from the Meta Series Out Now!

After waaaay too long of a wait, The Second Wave and Rise of The Circle are finally available in audio format! They're read by the award-winning narrator Kirby Heyborne (Gone Girl, Jim Henson: The Biography, Cloud Atlas) and available now in both digital downloads and audio CD formats. Check 'em out: The Second Wave (AmazonAudibleiTunes) and Rise of The Circle (AmazonAudibleiTunes).

To celebrate, I'm making Meta FREE today in ebook format on Amazon and audio format on Audible (US only). If you liked Meta please let a friend know that they can grab it for free today. Also, you can now grab the digital box set of all three books at a steep discount on Amazon.

That's all the news I've got for now. I'm heads down working on the next book and can't wait to share more details with you soon! Thanks for reading!

"The Second Wave" Now Available in Audio Format

Finally, The Second Wave is available as an audiobook from Audible, Amazon or iTunes.

Even better, if you already own the book on Kindle it's only $2.99 to add the audio version. You can even buy it on CD from Amazon, if you're into that kinda thing.

This version is narrated by the awesome Kirby Heyborne who does a much better job than the old narrator (me). In related news, Rise of The Circle will be out in audio format later this month. I'll be sure to let everyone know as soon as it's available.

Things I Liked in 2015

I missed my November list so I'm just gonna make this one a 2015 catch-all for stuff I liked but missed posting about.

Project Greenlight (HBO)


This was probably the show I looked forward to most each week while it was on. It's a really good examination on the creative process and constraints. Most, if not all art requires compromise and this is basically about what happens when an artist refuses to do it at every turn. (Spoiler: they basically make the worst movie of 2015.)

Childhood’s End



I can't believe I hadn't read this book before. It basically established the alien invasion genre, with movies like Independance Day 'borrowing' from it liberally. Despite how many times you've seen elements from this book in other media, I promise you've never read anything like it. If you're sick of dystopian fiction, this book shows that utopian fiction can be just as terrifying.


Jessica Jones (Netflix)

You've probably already heard this recommended by everyone and their cousin, but it lives up to the hype. Cinematic Marvel might have the best special effects and suits, but Netflix Marvel has the best villains so far.


The Gift


 The less you know about this movie going in, the better. Probably my favorite thriller of last year for no other reason than how quickly it jumps into the story.
