Bob Moore: Hostile Territory is Almost Out

I’ve sent out ARC (Advanced Review Copies) to a few reviewers but you’ll probably get the book before they are done with the reviews. Right now, I’m waiting on a cover and on one final editing pass by my wife. If all goes to plan, Bob Moore: Hostile Territory will be in your hands by the end of next week. Also, if you don’t have it by the end of next week, it’ll be at least a month or two before you do as I’ll be in the midst of a move back to the United States from Christmas until…well, until we can get settled. So, cross your fingers that the cover comes through.

What the hell took so long

Okay, first of all, I’m sorry. Those of you that follow me on Twitter have been going crazy for the last few months. You’ve known the first draft of Hostile Territory was done months and months ago and have (by your emails and tweets) been wondering what I’ve been doing all this time. Well, time to reveal all.

The Why’s of Motorcycles: Filtering

For long-time followers of me in my various online mediums, you may have heard that I started riding a motorcycle. If you want to know why, feel free to read my post on the PSB (Perth Street Bikes) forum here. The short version – because my wife said so.

Probably like you, I was fairly ignorant of the differences between motorcycles and cars before I started riding. To me, motorcycles were just two-wheeled cars that tended to attract hoons wanting to ride fast and die young. I’d see them weaving in and out of traffic, speeding past at incredible speeds, and generally being unsafe. While this is sometimes true, there is an awful lot of ignorance out there about what motorcycles can and can’t do and why motorcycle riders act in specific ways.

I’m going to start this series of posts with a common complaint car drivers have of motorcycles. Continue reading The Why’s of Motorcycles: Filtering

News: Met an Author, Got a Review, Inspired a Writer

It has been a busy few weeks around casa de la Andry. We moved to Australia for my wife’s work less than two years ago but, because Perth is at the ass-end of nowhere, we haven’t had many visitors (tickets from the States range in the $3-4000 for coach). This weekend a guy that we were friendly with in the States showed up for a business trip. Of course, since he was a familiar face, we were totally excited and welcomed him like family. Turns out he was just as cool and interesting as we could have ever hoped. In the end, we talked a lot about writing and he revealed that he had always wanted to write a novel. Well, I shared with him the Note from the Author at the end of Bob Moore: No Hero, and he got inspired. We talked for hours about his story idea and he left with a real plan to write his book. I don’t know if he will or not but it was exciting to see him so fired up about writing. Continue reading News: Met an Author, Got a Review, Inspired a Writer
