GREETINGS FROM THE SUB-ARCTIC!
A ship like no other, lost for a thousand years
It’s finished. The last two books of the Battleship Leviathan series are done, and both are longer than any of the previous titles. Book #5 is nearly 98k words and Book #6, the last in the series, is 90k words. Both are with the editor and will be turned over to Aethon Books by the end of August. I think you’ll like how it wraps up. I am both pleased and proud of this series.
Stanley is an Olympic caliber sleeper – he gives me all the time I need to write, if I would only use that time wisely. I’ll doof around on the internet for too long, then get back into a story in earnest, and that’s when Stanley gets up and wants to go outside. Of course I take him, but sometimes, my productivity suffers because it takes a bit to get back into the story after the untimely interruption.
Starship Freedom – Book #7 is out now! If you’re not into the series, then Book #1 is on sale today for only 99 cents.
And not just that, if you like what you see, there’s one more book coming in this eight-book series. All of these are in Kindle Unlimited, too, for ease of reading as part of your subscription.
The starship Freedom is just a museum ship. Until the aliens attack!
Battlestar Galactica meets Starship Troopers in this sci-fi adventure from Daniel Arenson, the USA Today bestselling author of Earthrise.
The starship Freedom was once a mighty warship. Today she’s a tourist attraction. The space wars ended long ago. The Freedom is now a flying museum. The tourists love it. The Changing of the Guard, the starfighter aerobatics, the starboard cannon salute . . . it’s the best show in the galaxy.
James King commands the starship Freedom. He hates his job. He was a real soldier once. Back when the Freedom was a real warship. He never imagined himself running a tourist trap. Right after Christmas, he plans to retire.
Then, on Christmas day, the aliens attack. Horrifying aliens. Creatures of claws, fangs, and endless malice. Within hours, they devastate Earth’s military. Millions die.

JJE 16 – Succession is back from editing and will now arrive early – Preorder delivery has been moved forward a month to August 25th!
Battleship Leviathan 5 – Leviathan Rises! is being edited now. Delivery remains Sep 27 since we already set up a bunch of paid promotions to get the word out about this series. Battleship Leviathan #1 will be Free from Sep 27 to Oct 1 during that time. If you haven’t jumped on board this series, that will be the time to dive in. Book #2 will be on sale for 99 cents during those five days, too.
Battleship Leviathan #6 – Leviathan’s Fear, the final book in the Battleship Leviathan series. It came in just over 90k words and wraps the storyline and the series. I hope you like how it turned out. This one will release in October.
And now I’m working on Jack Foster #5. I promised my friend John that I would finish his series. He passed away on May 30th. He had put Jack #5 – You Don’t Know Jack up for pre-order for September 30, so I have to knuckle down and get this book written so we can deliver to John’s final wishes.
