The Eimar Beacon has been published. It is currently available at Amazon and Smashwords.

This book is not part of the PIT series, but it is set in the same universe as the PIT series.

Here is the Squidlord page:

Other formats will follow in the next couple of weeks. Smashwords has many formats you can read on most devices, but some prefer buying directly from a company related to their device (such as Apple or B&N). I'm releasing the softcover through Createspace as before, so it will probably be available soon.

I am currently working on "The Created" and the 7th PIT novel, "The Celaran Probe".
 
Thanks all for reading and reviewing my books!

I saw your review of Ingenious on Google Play. Really made my day! That's the book I'm the most proud of. I used to hear authors say some book or other wrote itself; after Ingenious I knew what they meant.

The Celaran Probe is next in that series; I plan to have it done this year after The Created. I try to post news on squidlord.com or the various social sites.

I don't know if I will return to the Synchronicity Trilogy. I don't want to ruin it, ha. I'd like to become a full time author and if I can do that it might impact the decision.

Thanks for reading and reviewing it means a lot to me.

This is, surprisingly, not a lie.

Published my 16th novel. If you know what an antipaladin is, you might want to check this one out.

Took two years, but I'm glad to have reached 100 reviews for Trilisk Ruins at Amazon. 3.9 out of 5 stars average. It also has 193 reviews on Goodreads with a 3.51 average. Thanks to the 25,000 who purchased it, and thanks to all who reviewed it.

No doubt the amazing cover by Howard Lyon has served it well.

Written by Hugh Howey, no less.
Published: 2/12/2014. Written by: Hugh Howey. It's no great secret that the world of publishing is changing. What is a secret is how much. Is it changing a lot? Has most of the change already happened? What does the future look like? The problem with these questions is that we don't have the ...

A very interesting article. It provided some answers to a couple of questions I had about the e-book industry.
