    Well done. Being an author seems to suit you.

    Thanks, John. Actually, it does fit in a way what with all the writing and honing of skills since late 2013. We've had some rough months starting last fall including my health ain't what it used to be. I won't kick off any time soon, but I'm on heart meds for the duration and I can no longer physically work like I used to. Dang it. So, I write. Third Defense, Book 2 is coming along nicely and it will tie in to Book 1 seamlessly. Second Blue Cloud, likewise although that will morph in to a series, what type of series I'll reveal when the second little tome is ready.

    All four books have been edited extensively since last fall. Content and stories are the same, just verbiage cleaned up quite a bit, ergo the reads are much more smooth now. Three months of ten hour days going over a thousand pages and more word by word, changing what needed change, cleaned up what needed cleaning, then going back and doing it word by word. No wonder I drink.

    The two books, An Incident On Simonka and Sevastopol, The Third Defense Book 1, are in print now and I'll attach the links shortly. Never The Last One is being readied for printing proof as I speak. Blue Cloud will be last for print for a couple reasons. One, someone is nosing around that little book, we'll see if it comes to a contract, but they are talking series and animation. I'll believe it when I have the cheque in hand.

    Well, gentlemen, it's been an interesting few months in the saga of printed books. Suffice it to say I removed my books from the agent, sat back and watched a bit to make sure nothing was left behind unbeknownst to me, then waited a couple months before putting all four up on Amazon. Three are on Zon now available in print and all four are on Zon for ebook. Blue Cloud will go to print on Zon in a couple days, I've started the process but it takes a while for Zon to say 'ok for this step' and go to the next task. Since the printed tomes hit Amazon sales have been brisk, unlike under the 'agent' when it was crickets. The odd thing is that even though the monthly spread sheet showed crickets, I was getting more than a few emails from those who bought the books in US. I found that little foible to be of interest. 'Nuff said.


    My book site, where all are shown links to Zon ebooks and printed books. http://rhauslander.com/

    I did pull all my books from agent and am finishing up listing them myself on Zon. That should say all.

    All four books are on Amazon. Copies are available in US/Canada, Europe, Italy, Japan and Oz.

    Working with Amazon is always interesting and getting them to use the correct genre is like talking to a brick wall. Page count is also interesting. Attached is the actual printed copy page count. It's a little different than what Zon says.

    Never The Last One, A Novel Of Spetznaz. 672 pages.
