Space is big. Really big. This sale is even bigger.

OK, that’s a lie, but it’s a pretty darn big sale. Not one, but TWO of my most popular series are on sale on Kindle (and I’m even giving one book away absolutely FREE)!

“These days she tended to think of herself as a Heisenbergian Christian: she believed in the broad outlines of Christianity, but she was unable to pinpoint the specifics of her creed. She was OK with the wave; it was the particles that tended to escape her.”
Robert Kroese, Mercury Falls

“...And I can't promise anything, you understand, but there's always a chance he'll want to torture your boss anyway. Just recreationally, I mean."
"Wow, that would be terrific," I said.”
Robert Kroese, Starship Grifters

“It was never a good thing when a bad guy started quoting Nietzsche.”
Robert Kroese, The Big Sheep
