Pre-Order Babylon Confidential and help promote “Red Fury,” a Babylon 5 novelette

Babylon Confidential: A Memoir of Love, Sex & Addiction” is at #18,950 on Amazon.com and we’re working hard to get it into Top #100 before November 6th!  We need to fire things up and get some more pre-orders so Morgan (Grant Buchanan) and I are doing what we do best – writing something awesome!  Here is the cover to “Red Fury,” a Babylon 5 novelette of about 10,000 words that we will share with you for free if we can get “Babylon Confidential” into the Top #100!

Red Fury novelette cover“Red Fury” follows on from Joe’s (Straczynski) story, “Hidden Agendas,” and features an enraged Ivanova as captain of her own ship, this time on a mission to single-handedly wipe out the Psi Corp after they ambush her with shadow tech destroyers!

Let’s aim to get “Babylon Confidential” under the #5,000 mark for starters and we’ll post the first scene which features Mr. Garibaldi and contains clues about part the red Vorlon ship plays in the story!
