Today is release day for Silver or Lead, the third Pallas Group Solutions thriller and the third in the Brave New Disorder series. The PGS contractors go a little farther afield in this one, and discover some new enemies. Just how deep does the rabbit hole go? Threats Lurk in the Shadows… And Sometimes in Plain Sight The Pallas Group Solutions Contractors have put the hurt on Chinese operations in Mexico. In the aftermath, alliances shift and powers that hadn’t appeared to be involved before start to take a hand. In a world of unrestricted warfare, PGS has to adapt. While the Chinese covert war has changed axes, Chris and his fellow contractors head south to deepen the disruption, entering into the Northern Triangle of Central America. But their involvement is no longer as clandestine as they’d hoped. And new foes are joining with the old to come after them. Can they stay one step ahead? You’ll love this action thriller because the action is as brutal as a bullet to the head. Get it now. *** Only ebook and paperback are live right at the moment, though the hardcover should be available soon. Audio is coming, but due to schedules, it
Mike Massa Joins the Livestream
Mike Massa, former SEAL and action/sci-fi author joins the stream tonight. Mike wrote a story for the Maelstrom Rising SPOTREPS anthology. We’ll be talking the military, writing, action and science fiction, along with anything else that comes up. If you’ve watched any of these streams, you’ll know that things get real freeform, real quick. Come and join us.
The Dragon and the Skull Audio is Here!
Because of production schedules, it took a little bit longer to get the audio up for The Dragon and the Skull. I finished a little late to give Steve enough time to get everything wrapped up before the preorder dropped. Unfortunately, the delay for Silver or Lead will be comparable. But it’s here! As Threats Continue to Converge… And the Bodies Pile Up… There’s No Choice but to Go On The Hunt Actions have consequences, and Chris Grant and the men of Pallas Group Solutions know it. After the fight on the border, the cartels are going to be out for blood. The only way forward is to hit them before they can hit PGS. While some contractors go on the offensive in the Southwest and Northern Mexico, others are tracing the Chinese connection. They’ll find a web of subversion, terror, and murder they hardly suspected. But Pallas Group Solutions hires hunters. Will they be tough enough to face both the Chinese Dragon and the Narco Death’s Head? You’ll love this action thriller because the action is as savage as the twists are sudden! Get it in ebook, hardcover, paperback, or audio today.

Livestream: GWOT and Iraq
So, we decided to have a bit of an impromptu stream this week. Yes, The Dragon and the Skull came out yesterday, but while it will be discussed at least a little, this one’s more about history. Twenty years ago this month, Operation Iraqi Freedom kicked off. All three of us are GWOT vets, and I did two combat deployments in OIF. We have thoughts. This one could get spicy. Buckle up.
The Dragon and the Skull
The second Pallas Group Solutions thriller, The Dragon and the Skull, Book 2 in the Brave New Disorder series, is out today. As Threats Continue to Converge… And the Bodies Pile Up… There’s No Choice but to Go On The Hunt Actions have consequences, and Chris Grant and the men of Pallas Group Solutions know it. After the fight on the border, the cartels are going to be out for blood. The only way forward is to hit them before they can hit PGS. While some contractors go on the offensive in the Southwest and Northern Mexico, others are tracing the Chinese connection. They’ll find a web of subversion, terror, and murder they hardly suspected.

Worldbuilding with Christopher Ruocchio
It’s time for the monthly stream. This month we’ve got Christopher Ruocchio, author of the epic Sun Eater series, joining us. We’ll be talking worldbuilding, writing, publishing–he’s recently changed publishers–and anything else that comes up, as inevitably happens in the chaos that is these streams. Come join us.
Listen to The Rock of Battle
At long last, The Rock of Battle, the explosive conclusion to The Lost, is available on audio. The sorcerous rebellion within the Kingdom of Cor Legear was only the beginning. Now half a million men and monsters are on their way to invade the kingdom in the name of the Empire. All that stands in the way is the fortress of Cor Chatha. The Rock of Battle. Conor and his fellow Recon Marines have ridden ahead to scout the enemy and try to disrupt the advance. A recon platoon can only do so much against such an army, however. And the army is the least of their concerns. Monsters, sorcery, and ancient evils descend on the Rock, as the Marines and their allies prepare to make what might be their last stand. The Rock of Battle is now on audiobook narrated by Mark Boyett. Also available in eBook and paperback formats. *** Couple of other matters, for those who are interested. I’m running into throttling built into my current newsletter sender, in that it’s only sending to about a third of the list, to “help” me with “sender reputation.” Working on figuring out either a workaround or another service to use. I’ll be sending a newsletter out shortly, but I
Gray War Audio!
So, while we weren’t quite able to time things to get simultaneous publication, for the first time we’ve got audio coming out with the ebook and print. Gray War is now available in all formats! It was supposed to be a break from war zones…. Until all hell broke loose…. Can they survive long enough to fight this new war? Chris Grant had taken the close protection gig for a finance guy as a break from the last two decades spent in war zones around the world. When a coordinated attempt is made on the client’s life, however, he finds that this job isn’t as simple as it seemed. Things only get more complicated from there. The Pallas Group Solutions contractors haven’t been selected because they’ll sit on their hands. As they begin to gather more intelligence, and as the bodies stack up, they discover that there’s more to both the client and their own company than meets the eye. They’ve plunged into a world of drugs, corruption, foreign influence, and terrorism. And a secret war that they have no choice but to fight. Gray War, the first Pallas Group Solutions Thriller, is available in ebook, hardcover, paperback, and audio. The ebook
The Stand Your Ground Stream
As you may have read here earlier, I’ve run into some roadblocks with the launch of Gray War. The middle managers at Amazon Marketing Solutions won’t let me advertise it, citing “violent content” on the cover. That gave me the idea for tonight’s Stand Your Ground Stream. Larry Correia and Nick Cole have both experienced direct attacks on their careers and character, and Jason Anspach has experienced it slightly more indirectly, as Galaxy’s Edge Press’s account was deleted from Kindle Direct publishing last year, citing a clearly false accusation. Whether it’s bureaucratic incompetence, a decaying algorithm increasingly swamped by the signal to noise ratio, or actual malice, there are plenty of roadblocks to the author out there. Tonight, we’re going to talk about standing your ground and making it work despite those obstacles. Come join us.
