RJM here, dropping a quick line about some new stuff coming up.
Paperback copies of the following titles will be soon available on Amazon:
The Lodestone Files: The Things in the Shadows
The Lodestone Files: The Cat, The Mouse, and The Thing From Another World
Abnormal Side Effects
Pre-orders for The Chronicles of Bob: The Chronic Suicidal will open up soon. It will have a placeholder image/cover, for now, since it is being redone.
There will be digital and paperback copies available. However, hardcover copies will be extremely limited to 13. These will be signed, numbered, and include an extra snippet following the story.
There will also be a new anthology dubbed Abnormal Side Effects: Refill. This collection will have everything that the first did not. There will be a compiled version where the two are one and via box set.
More projects are underway, and there are also plans to cover BlizzCon 2017. Since it will be a first-time experience, it’ll be documented and reported on. It’s something I am excited to share.
But really… Vacation! Everyone needs some R & R. It’s recommended. If I were a doctor, I’d prescribe it with a severe amount of refills…and probably be out of practice rather quickly.
That’s all for now. I’ll be sharing some other goodies soon enough.
This title offers more backstory on Mac, as well as exactly how the contact between the alien homeworld and Earth was established. Also, we see how the newly reformed “James” begins his pursuit of the boys and Murdoch.
The exciting game of cat and mouse starts hard and fast with book two. After that, you may wonder, when will book three come out? What about compiling them? A lot of “whats” that you may ask…and I’ll gladly answer.
While book one is free, book two will not be. Unfortunately, the price set on Amazon is $0.99; it’s a fixed price that cannot be changed. However, I will be offering the title here on A.B.Normal Publishing and Media Group at a discounted price of $0.35. That’s the cost of a candy bar or pack of gum. Not too much, is it?
Book three could come out possibly this Winter…however, it’ll surely be out Spring of 2018. And then the last book will be later 2018; including the bonus short story from another family’s PoV. They will be compiled and placed in a collection as soon as they’re all released.
This story picks up immediately after the end of The Lodestone Files: The Things in the Shadows. Book two marks a great setup for the following events and provides some more backstory on a few of our characters and overall backdrop. Book three is in the final stages as is book four, which is where we will conclude this short series.
After book four ends, there will be a reissue of all the books as one. For those that do purchase copies (either directly or via elsewhere; with proof of purchase) I will offer discounted copies either by print or digital.
In addition to the conclusion, there will be a bonus chapter/side story about another family caught during a particular event. That story will be included in the fourth book and reissue as my thanks to you (and it will not be added to the “MSRP” to jack up the price.
I will also be selling digital copies of all titles here as well. I’m just fine tuning and making sure there are no bugs. They will be at a discounted rate if you purchase directly from A.B.Normal Publishing and Media Group.
All in all, I hope to heighten your reading experience, and if you so need it, publishing experience as well. We are looking to expand to take on a few clients and maintain a small press for now, but eventually, we’d like to be a medium or large press (and beyond).
I wish you all well this evening and rest of the week.

“All life is a gamble . . . We go to sleep every night comfortably betting that the next day we’ll wake up.”
Demons. Sorcery. Magical playing cards. It’s anything but a fairy tale. Armed with her choice deck, her beloved book, Hoyle’s Guide to Poker and Parlor Tricks, and the skill that led her to throw away her college fund, Lilah gambles with her life—and with the lives of those around her.
Elsewhere, other players have a different idea of the rules of the game. And investigating the bizarre chain of events is Middleton PD’s finest, Detectives Dana Deupree and Walter Conway.
It’s anyone’s game. The cards have been shuffled and the stakes are high. The call has gone around the table. Others may fold, but not Lilah. She plays for keeps.
What will you wager? Will you call? Stand? Or will you fold?

FROM THE DESK OF ROBERT J. S. T. MCCARTNEY
Happy New Year and salutations.
Sure, the new year started a bit back but that’s OK. Lilah’s Guide to Hoyle was released, The Chronicles of Bob: The Chronic Suicidal was finished…and compiled. The Diary of the Wasteland Bear God ended its first season and (is being compiled) started its second season. It’s a new year and with it plenty of things to do!
In case you missed out on last year’s finale, it’s a good time to get caught up.
So what’s happening this year? Well, Lilah’s Guide to Hoyle is book two in the series (chronologically) while it was declared to be released first. Each book is stand-alone but offers as an overall piece of a greater puzzle. As such, the prequel…or book one…will be polished and offered to the Public this year with its title and cover announced.
Johnny Nightwalker will be finishing its story up. Thereafter, it will be compiled, sealed, cast into the shadows, summoned, and sent out into the world.
There may…be an appearance of a lovely fellow, and his name rhymes with…Bob. More on that later.
There will be several stories coming out via a novel, novelette(s), novella, etc.
Needless to say, there are things happening this year.
Meanwhile, Season One of The Diary of the Wasteland Bear God is ending. Season Two is being written, and a sneak preview will premiere on its anniversary December 15. Season Two will be in full swing in January!
Johnny Nightwalker will be finishing its remaining chapter before I go on hiatus to do other projects that I want to write about. One happens to consist of 600+ pages, unedited, unformatted, and has around 20+ pages of outline. The second installment of The Lodestone Files will be released by the end of this year, and possibly something else related to…

They lurk in the shadows. They could be anyone…or anything.
There are warning labels on a lot of things, but there is no warning about life.
Alright, so this week I recommend staying tuned for the newest and latest..and last posts for a few stories.
It’s the recap for Oct 30 – Nov 6, 2016. This won’t be the last post, but if the world does end tomorrow… Pizza and Waffles.

Salutations and greetings, to all you fine folks.
This week marks when Hell descends upon Earth once again, where the evils are gathering…wait, they have been (Congress). Ah, I digress. Actually, no I don’t. From the top!
This week marks a historical moment where in the USA we could finally have an elected (former first ) woman as president or a billionaire/playboy/businessman. How it goes down? Well…we shall see.
I fancy whipping up a quick “Vote for the Bear God!” post…yeah, I think I will.
Anyway, regardless of the outcome, I suggest everyone truly unite for the greater good and band together. I don’t mean some half-ass unite “because 9/11 happened” uniting we all had either. I mean, do something. I could make a lengthy list, but that’s not the purpose of this.
So, on with the show!—er, posts!
Missed a post from last week, or perhaps, you decided to skip it? Never fear! Here’s what you missed. Get caught up!
The story of our beloved Suicidal, Bob, draws to an end—this Fall. There aren’t many episodes left so, find out #WhatHappensToBob.
In other news, the season finale of The Diary of the Wasteland Bear God is coming up soon as well. There will be a brief hiatus since there will be the release of Lilah’s Guide to Hoyle, the next installment of The Lodestone Files, and other projects that are coming up. Oh, and the holidays are here, too.
Lilah’s Guide to Hoyleis complete. It will be soon released into the wild. NOTE: There will be a sweet deal for those who subscribe to the mail list and otherwise.
In the meantime, stay tuned for new posts later this week.
