The Fifth House is here

My new book, The Fifth House, is out today!

Following closely on the events of The Only City Left, Allin Arcady searches for his lost love. Tyena Branch struggles to scavenge enough food to keep her mother and herself alive. And in the cat city of Pudlington, the uneasy truce between humans and felines is already faltering.

Into this turmoil enters the true power behind Doyle Arcady’s reign... The Fifth House.

DRM-Free everywhere. Free Kindle version with purchase of the softcover. No werebeasts were harmed in the making of this book.

Early Reviews for The Fifth House:

1) Mack Moyer: http://www.mackmoyer.com/?p=118

“It seems like every novel taking place after the fall of human civilization spends chapter upon chapter telling us how things like zombies and laser swords came about. Goldman does none of that. His world is full of talking cats, ghosts, monsters and tiny coils that can turn you into a werebear (or perhaps a squid). It’s just awesome for the sake of being awesome.”

2) Ryan Toxopeus: http://ryantoxorants.blogspot.ca/2015/04/review-fifth-house-by-andy-goldman.html

“The way themes re-emerged from the first book to be bigger and badder than before was excellent. The voices of the two main characters were distinct. I found myself liking Allin's humour more than Tyena's straight shooting attitude, but both were well written.”

3) Galit Balli: http://thereadingbud.com/2015/05/05/book-review-the-fifth-house-arc/

“I had high expectations from this book as I just finished reading the first only a few weeks ago and I am so happy it didn’t fall and this book was such a wonderful read. It was fast paced with lots of action scenes and twists and turns that can make you scream at the book.”

It's about time I check out the Heretic Arcanum series by +Rick Wayne, since I've enjoyed his Minus Faction series, too. The man can write. Check it out.

I must have gotten The Fifth House in under the wire. I had no idea this was going on. Weirdness.
 
This has been a strange few months in the self pub world. 

Changes in KDP Select, Nook seems to be circling the drain, and this from Google.

To be clear, Google hasn't stopped selling ebooks, but they have stopped new authors from selling ebooks in Google Play Books. Only a single aggregator, eBookPartnership, claims to distribute to Google Play Books (Smashwords, Ingram Spark, BookBaby, and Draft2Digital do not list the store on their websites).
Does anyone know what is going on behind the scenes at Google Play Books? About two months ago Google surprised us all when they abruptly stopped letting authors and book publishers sign up to sell ebooks in Google Play Books. They offered no real explanation as to why they were declining new partners, instead telling... Read More »

Sounds like some possible law suit or legal issue. Those already there are save but may be they aren't allowed to add more/new authors until it's resolved or they come up with a new system.

The silence screams out secret legal stuff to me.

I took apart the Haunted House and then Hulk showed up to take the credit for the destruction at the end. Pffft.

I would say Meatballs is a classic you should see, but I am guessing it is a movie you had to grow up with. :) classic Bill Murray role, though.

I don't know, I quite like peering around a corner and firing arrows from a distance.  And then fleeing from trouble.

I have two original art pieces that +Jess Boudrie did, and they are great. Consider getting some art from him so he'll be able to complete Devastator. (And I'll be jealous when he does.)
 
I'm a big dork ... I'm owning up to that. And just to prove it ... I'll draw you something and mail it to you so I can buy a big toy and feel like a little kid. I'll be doing this all week :D

It's really the "Make Andy Jealous" campaign. It'll be nice to turn the tables ;)

Just a notice: I'm on a bit of a social media break for the time being. I'll still respond to tagged posts but for the most part I'll be absent here. See you on the flip side.

When I built the Lego Movie Rescue Reinforcements and Creative Ambush sets, I appreciated that they basically gave you all the props you need for a western saloon. So I'm finally taking a stab at that. Here I'm just laying it out: doors, bar, stage, piano (stolen whole from Creative Ambush), spaces for tables, etc.

Inevitably I will not have enough pieces to make this whole, but it's fun to try.

Thanks, +Anthony KR. I'll have to see how much I can do with what I have and then go from there.

Okay. I need to turn off Chrome or I will never get anything done while the girls are in school. I might still not get anything done, but at least the Internet won't be the reason for that. See you in a few hours, world.

Story
Tagline
Writer/Husband/Dad
Introduction
My first novel, The Only City Left, is on Amazon. In this post-apocalyptic science-fantasy, the Earth has become a planet-sized city, and it's falling apart. Allin Arcady must survive long enough to see the Sun rise on the Roof of the World, but he's lost in the depths of the city, and a horror from his past is hot on his heels.

I am a dad, husband, and writer. I like science-fiction and fantasy in most formats, including books, movies, TV, comic books, RPGs, and webcomics.

I liked the food here. Big pancakes and thick, tasty strips of bacon. The eggs were cooked properly. You order at the counter and then basically don't see staff again unless you seek them out, but everyone was polite when I needed something.

Kind of pricey for the amount of food you get and the food was just okay.

This is a laid-back environment with some great breakfast food, especially the foot-wide pancakes. They only take cash but there is an ATM inside if you need it. The staff is very casual, but they're on top of refills and whatnot.

The sandwiches were excellent, which you would expect. Dessert, not so much. We had black-and-white cookies and carrot cake, neither of which was up to par. The waitress reported that they recently started making the cookies in-house, which is too bad because they don't know how to do it well. Service was okay. The wait staff was nice but there were a lot of "we ran out of that," and "we can't substitute this." If you go in knowing that it's their show, not yours, you won't risk disappointment. I would return for the sandwiches alone.

I just moved nearby and tried the San Rafael store first, but the Novato store is much much better. Friendly staff, big store, and good parking. We will always be using the Novato store now!
