Been kind of busy lately.

BabyKat accepts no excuses.

How busy? Four novels to revise busy.  Didn’t plan it that way, but…here’s the scoop.

Lonesome George 2 (“The Fire This Time”) and Lonesome George 3 (“The Broken Return”) have been written.  LG2 has been revised and is with my editor and publisher now.

By the Hands of Men 2 (“Into the Flames,” hmmm, I might have something thematic going on here) and By the Hands of Men 3 (“The Wrath of a Righteous Man”) have been written.

I have the copy-edited version of BTHOM2 and I will begin reviewing that within days.  My goal is to have the novel ready for sale on Amazon by mid-November or December 1 at the latest (should some …

Got my “Author’s Copies” yesterday

Which was very cool.  Been working away on the LG2 sequel…maybe 80 pages left to go on that.

Next week, I fly to New York City for the Liberty Island launch party, which is, you know, kinda spanky.  While in the Big Apple, I’ll have a chance to grab some coffee or lunch with some friends, old and new.  One guy, Mark Lanham, I’ve known since High School.  He’s a working actor, doing off-Broadway and some writing.   I’ll also hang out with the Riot Guuuurlz, Scary Smart Jamie K. Wilson and Ms. Always Right , at which point we’ll no doubt get up to some mischief.

The ebook of “The Big Bang” is now #4 in Alternative History on Amazon.  I got down to about 1200 in sales rank for Kindles.  Not #1, but a heck of a lot better than being 1,200,000 in sales rank.

So, thanks, everyone!

Book Bomb on January 20!

Exploding onto Amazon on December 16

On January 20 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. PST (1-4 EST), we’re staging a book bomb to push The Big Bang (written by moi, Roy M. Griffis) up the charts.  I’m shamelessly asking my friends and supporters (especially you conservatives and libertarians) to spread the word.   You could buy the novel yourself, for instance.  Or, if you could blog or tweet or email during that time (1/20, from 1000 – 1300 PST), sharing a link to the book (http://goo.gl/eeqbyD) and encouraging your readers or friends to purchase the novel in paperback or e-book, we all win!

You can read an excerpt here:  The Big Bang at the National Review, and who knows, perhaps tweet or …

“The Big Bang” Detonates on January 20

Griffis__Cover

The Big Bang, the first volume of the Lonesome George Chronicles, is already on Amazon as an ebook.  It will be available as a paperback on January 20, 2015, with an audio book version by Audible coming soon, too.  We’ve had some nice blurbs.  Rich Lowry (Editor of the National Review), called it “”A wild romp through a post-apocalyptic America unimaginably awful but also highly contemporary. Buckle your seat belts–and prepare to resist.”   Ben Shapiro, NY Times best-selling author, found the novel “Clever, witty, tense, and a thoroughly enjoyable read!”

I’m nearly finished with the first draft of the sequel…maybe about 150 pages from finishing.  I’ve already finished the first draft of “By the Hands of Men” Books 2 …
