Since all of my previous countdown deals have been in the US territory, I thought it would be nice to mix things up a little and offer my British readership the chance to get my work for less. As of now for five days all of my books are available for the minimum kindle UK price of 99p each! Tell your British friends they have the chance to grab one of their fellow countrymen’s work for a paltry sum.
There is to be another SuperversiveSF Livestream today at 3pm Eastern Time, on the theme of Steampunk and the recent launch of For Steam and Country. It’s sure to be a lot of fun as usual, so head on over to superversiveSF later today to listen in.
The latest release from Superversive Press is now live and available for purchase. THe more people that buy the book today, the higher the book’s rank will go on Amazon, leading to more visibility on the site and more sales as more people are given the opportunity to discover its awesomeness.
Please also share around the book’s promotional video as widely as you can, so people can get an idea of what sort of adventures to expect:
With the imminent release on Thursday 15th June by Superversive Press of Jon del Arroz’ second novel For Steam and Country, I have dared to produce a promotional video to capture its epicness, with some capable help from Sean McCleery and Shawn King.
Do You See the Crystal Spire?
Do you see the Crystal Spire
That adorns Rislandia?
You’ll want to join the Crystal Knights
To guard her land, her sea, her air.
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the thundering of the guns,
Then you’ll be sure to play your part
When the battle comes.
The invading Wyranth soldiers’ eyes
Emit an eerie glow;
The ground is shaken by a force
Whose source you’d like to know;
So now climb up this rope,
Renew your old hope as we go!
Do you hear the turbines roar
As we soar into the sky?
This great airship offers more
Than just a simple earthbound life.
When the fire within your heart
Mirrors the glorious setting sun,
Then you’ll be sure to play your part
When adventure comes.
The book is currently available for preorder at the bitly shortlink given in the video, but Jon would prefer people to buy on the release date itself so as to maximise the Amazon ranking on day 1, meaning the book becomes more visible within Amazon’s maze of recommendation algorithms.
Just yesterday a new space opera came out that I was the editor of. It is the debut novel of Yakov Merkin, a fellow member of CLFA:
It’s a book that I enjoyed editing, and one that builds into a fun action-packed romp filled with intriguing scenarios, high-stakes internal and external conflicts, cool technologies and powers, colourful alien races and a rich and varied galaxy.
There’s a corrupt and crumbling galactic republic, with ancient grievances flaring up into new bloodshed; a grave new threat to the old order, an uneasy alliance based on a lie, a seemingly impossible quest for vengeance, and an equally unlikely search for redemption.
If that sounds good to you, check it out!

Doctor to Dragons has its first review on amazon, and from a fellow veterinarian, no less (though sadly one of non-magical creatures):
“I loved the idea of a fantasy book from the perspective of a veterinarian. As a veterinarian, Mr. Huggins did an amazing job of expressing a veterinarian well. The stresses and joys. The quick thinking and the problem solving. I had never thought about what it would be like to do surgery on a dragon, but since reading this book, I have dreamed about it and it is amazing! I regularly think about what I need to do to protect myself and staff from potentially aggressive patients, but am now very happy that I don’t treat basilisks! Thank you for an amazing entertaining story!!”
There you have it, what better seal of authenticity could you ask for? Don’t delay and dive into the exciting world of dragon surgery, with occasional forays into the wonders of basilisk balms, chimera cures, troll treatments and orc ointments.
As you descend to the waiting room with your beloved but beleaguered beast, feel free to soothe its nerves by singing along with the Dark Lord’s favourite elevator music. You know you want to:
