Angry Ghosts Giveaway!

sun_jack_o_lantern

Halloween has always been our favorite holiday. It’s the perfect celebration of Fall with a little bit o’wicked thrown in. But every year stores bring out the Yuletide Cheer earlier, as if seeing a snowman with a red and green scarf is suddenly going to trigger all of our spending impulses. Relax, Kris Kringle, you’ll get your turn.

So to offset all those early arriving Christmas decorations, we’re giving All Hallows’ Eve a boost:

Starting today, and running through the end of the month, Angry Ghosts will be FREE for worldwide download!

Even if you already have a copy, please tell a friend or loved one and help beat back the encroaching Ho-Ho-Hos until after Thanksgiving!

This will never happen again

 

You may have heard that Book Four of the Angry Ghosts series, Of Mortal Creatures, is near to release. That’s true.

It’s also true that the Holidays are upon us, and well, we’re so thrilled to finally be releasing it that we’re in a giving mood.

For the next five days, we are giving away Kindle copies of The Exhausted Dead.

You can put it on our tombstones, “They never gave The Exhausted Dead away for free again.” No kidding, this is the only time we’ll offer. So if you don’t already have a copy, click on the cover below and get your Kindle copy free!

Of Mortal Creatures available worldwide Dec 25th

We at C.O.P. thought this day would never come. We thought, Well, that’s it… Farnham’s finally gone and done himself stupid. It was a rational assumption, because death is a brain cell’s only reasonable means of protest against liquor of that magnitude.

Yet, here we are.

For a Cadre Operator, the need to serve is bred in the bone and honed to a razor’s edge…

Thompson, Argo, and Maiella were once the inseparable Team Spectre, unequaled in lethality and stealth. But mistaken identity aboard the Colony Ship Europa led to seventeen human deaths. In a time where all mankind numbers less than two-thousand, taking human life is the only unforgivable crime…

For Argo, nothing matters more than regaining his honorable place in the Operator Corps. For Maiella, subservience to authority is no longer enough, and she searches for a master greater than the Cadre. But Thompson has not faced his demons from the Europa disaster. He must decide where his loyalties lie, and quickly, because the hell storm unleashed during his mission to Earth is catching up with them all.

Print copies available at all major on-line booksellers December 25th. Available for pre-order on Kindle now!

Thank you so much for your patience! We can assure you the series conclusion, Plasma Rain, will not be so long in coming.

As for Farnham, he’s getting a fat sack of charcoal for Christmas. Which he’ll probably use to mellow his cheap bourbon.

Happy Holidays and have a wonderful New Year!

Sincerely,

C.O.P.

It must’ve seemed it would never happen. It has been an awfully long wait. That, and the fact our U.K. web host is suddenly riddled with malware, and everyone who tries to log on to our site gets the sternest warnings from their web browser…

Google Chrome: You want to go to this site? Really? Are you sure you want to go to this site? It’s totally unsafe. Like swimming with a necklace of pork chops in Tasmania unsafe. You’re serious? You’re actually going to go to this site? All right. Fine. We can’t stop you. Oh, and why not post your Social Security Number and bank account numbers while you’re at it? It’s your loss, pal. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

We’ve got some challenges.

But here’s some proof we’re still very much in business:

We at C.O.P. are still pushing for a late December release for paperback, possibly earlier for Kindle.

And we know what you’re saying: “It’s been three years. This better be worth it.”

No worries, folks. It is.

May you all have an excellent Thanksgiving!

-C.O.P.

Happy Birthday, US of A

While we at C.O.P. would like to say have a fun and safe July 4th, we know you’ll most likely be draining kegs, chowing down, and blowing things up. So instead, we say,

Throw your car keys into the woods, remember how short the fuses are, and don’t look down the mortar tube to see if the shell is lit (because it is).

While that should prevent the majority of bodily harm, you can benefit from our collective wisdom to avoid extreme embarrassment and have an enjoyable Independence Day celebration:

  • You might think hanging your bare ass out of a moving vehicle is a good idea…until they catch up to you at the stop light (right, Farnham?).

Almost getting away with it

  • Drunk dialing your congressman is exactly as much fun as you think it will be.
  • drunk-dial-congress-phone-field-625x625

  • Nakedness is generally frowned upon, but will be tolerated in direct proportion to your hotness.

Bateman

  • Don’t barf at a guest’s house. Not ever.

(photo deleted to protect the horribly, horribly guilty)

  • Tub sleeping will result in a photo that reaches your boss. It’s a kind of magic.

Classy, Farnham. Real classy.

  • PUT YOUR PHONE AWAY. Unless you’re expecting an emergency call, you should probably just turn it off. You know what we’re talking about.

Burninator

  • Lastly, never pass out where slow moving wild things can take their time with you.
