Coming Soon: Cartwright’s Cavaliers, a Four Horsemen Universe novel

Here’s just a small taste of what you will find in Cartwright’s Cavaliers. This novel is due to be released in late November, so keep your eyes out for it. The second book in this series, Asbaran Solutions, by Chris Kennedy, is due out in December 2016.

Heir to one of the leading “Four Horsemen” mercenary companies, Jim Cartwright is having a bad year. Having failed his high school VOWS test, he’s just learned his mother bankrupted the family company before disappearing, robbing him of his Cavalier birthright.

But the Horsemen of eras past were smart – they left a legacy of equipment Jim can use to complete the next contract and resurrect the company. It’s up to Jim to find the people he needs to operate the machinery of war, train them, and lead them to victory. If he’s good enough, the company can still be salvaged.

But then again, he’s never been good enough.

Dragon Award Finalist: Best Apocalyptic Novel

Hey, I’m here to say Thank You to all of you, because you have nominated A Time to Die, and voted, making this book a finalist for the inaugural Dragon Awards. I am awed by your confidence in me, and was quite literally speechless when I found out that I was a finalist. Of course, we watched the awards ceremony avidly via several social media outlets, and had our friend Patty McIntosh-Mize there, ready, just in case.

In the run-up to the actual awards we all read Nick Cole’s book, CTRL, ALT, Revolt! and agreed that it should win, so we were not at all surprised when it took the award. Many congratulations to Nick Cole for an excellent novel, the award is well-deserved.

My thanks again, to all of you, for making this journey an excellent one so far. Here’s to many more books yet to come!

My Thanks,

Mark Wandrey

a time to die cover 2

They say it came from the night sky. Streaks of light have crashed from the heavens, but they’re not angels or demons. They’ve brought something far, far worse. Something that turns people into mindless, cannibalistic monsters. The flashpoint is Texas. A reporter follows her story of unspeakable horror south of the border. A wounded fighter pilot finally gets his chance to return to duty, only to find himself forced into a recon mission that the government has strictly forbidden. A billionaire with dreams of space is watching those dreams turn to ash when he discovers what could only be a crashed alien spacecraft. A brilliant geneticist conducting outlawed research comes face to face with a nightmare that is consuming the world faster than anyone can comprehend. There’s no time to stop the outbreak. This is A Time to Die.

twilight-serenade-cover

The galaxy is not a safe place. More than five hundred years after Earth’s destruction, the descendants of humanity’s survivors are finally coming into their own under the leadership of First Among the Chosen Minu Groves. They’ve gained allies and slowly built strength, and now Minu has decided that the time has come to bid for freedom from the Tog, long humanity’s sponsors in the interspecies Concordia. The Higher Order species, though, have been proven to possess fleets of starships to enforce their iron will. To leave her species helpless against such a foe is not acceptable to Minu. So she’s about to set off into the deep darkness of space looking for the rumored ghost fleets, remnants of the Lost’s ancient armada from an eons-ago war. Those ships could be the final piece Minu needs to permanently ensure humanity’s freedom. But as her plans develop, the greater mysteries of her own history, her husband’s fate and the very nature of the Concordia may prove to be her own undoing – and with her, all of mankind.
