You can also pre-order Book 2 (Group Six and the Crater) for a great price — just $4.99 for the e-book. Click HERE to pre-order and receive your copy automatically when it’s released on May 1, 2023. (Yes, we previously announced a March release date, but the publisher decided to hold off until May in order to have some additional time for pre-release publicity.)

Here’s what awaits you in Book 2:

One little mistake and Tresado’s magical formula lands Group Six in a wasteland crawling with mutant monsters, a deadly disease, and creeping insanity that soon has them at each other’s throats. Their rescue by the militia from Abakaar seems providential. Hidden away in an oasis valley, Abakaar’s people are happy, prosperous, and peaceful. But Foxx’s Knowing Spell, which has always served him well at the gambling table, tells him that all is not as it seems. Has there ever been a group of Macai so placid and content? Where are the Eryndi citizens … including their friend Tresado? And why does no one ever leave Abakaar?

When an act of bravery catapults Foxx, Orchid, and Serena to the status of honored guests at the court of the Warrior Queen Minore, they must choose whether to accept the luxuries of Abakaar or risk their lives to expose a conspiracy which reaches across the planet.

Meanwhile, a parallel story 50,000 years in the past reveals the beginnings of both Abakaar and the magic widely practiced on the planet Lurra.

Join Group Six as their quest for treasure, magic, and fun takes them from a hellish desert to the paradise of Abakaar, and pits them against their most dangerous adversary yet.

Casper Comic Con, Day 1

Today was our first experience having a booth at an expo, and Casper Comic Con was a great place to start. When we weren’t chatting with people about Ron’s book (and selling more than we expected), we never lacked for entertainment. A large portion of the crowd was in costume, and had done a lot of work to get their looks right. The parade of fantastic characters was never-ending!

There’s another day of festivities tomorrow (June 26) from 10 to 4 at the Ford Wyoming Center. If you come up to join the fun, be sure to stop by our booth (#58) and say hi!

Group Six is going to Casper Comic Con!

Are you heading to Casper Comic Con on June 25 & 26? We’ll have a booth there and would love to say hi and geek out talking all things fantasy and sci-fi.

Print copies of Group Six and the River will be available at special show prices, plus we’ll be giving away two free copies of the audiobook, one each day. All you have to do to enter is sign up for Ron’s mailing list at the show.

Ron will be happy to sign your book, whether you get it at the show or somewhere else. And we’ll have Group Six bookmarks and coloring pages, free for everyone while they last.

Hope to see YOU at Casper Comic Con!

It’s Publication Day!

Today is the day Group Six and the River is officially released. If you’ve ordered a print copy through Amazon, we understand there may be about a two-week delay. This is due to an Amazon policy, and there’s nothing we or our publisher can do about it — sorry! E-books and audiobooks should be going out on time.

If you’re in the Casper area and would like to support local business, you can pick up a copy at the following locations:

  • Wind City Books, 152 S. Center
  • Wyoming Vapor Company, 507 N. Beverly
  • Game Crossing, 221 W. 1st Street
  • Norse Comics, 304 N. Center
  • Stage III Theatre, 904 N. Center

Ron will be doing a Book Signing session at Wind City Books on Saturday, May 21, from 11 am to 1 pm. Pick up a copy there or bring copies purchased online to get them autographed. We hope to see you there!

Getting from brain to book cover …

Ron has been asked to provide some notes for the cover of the second Group Six adventure (Group Six and the Crater). He wanted one of the mutant monsters that live in the irradiated Wasteland to appear. Sure, he could have sent the description — he’s a writer, after all — but it seemed like more fun to use pipe cleaners to create a model. Then he hung it from the cats’ fort to photograph it. And … it seemed at home among the holiday decorations, so it stayed.
