JOIN THE GROUP
MORE ON THE AMA:
Justin Sloan, author of the Shadow Corps series, is going to be joining us this Saturday (May 11) for an AMA! (ask me anything) Five randomly selected people who participate over the weekend will also be eligible to receive one of his Shadow Corps kindle ebooks for free!
Ask him questions about what it’s like being a full-time author, how he got started as an author, how long it took him to go full-time, or even about writing tips!
The heroine of Shadow Corps is like Thor in an Ironman suit in space, with a massive gun and sword. Where did he get the idea of writing about superpowers in space? What was the inspiration for the heroine of the story? Feel free to ask him this weekend!
I’ve been listening back through the Shadow Corps books as I outline book four, and it’s funny how, when I wrote them, I didn’t think of them as Gamelit. I was just writing what I thought would be fun. Then I got reviews saying they were LitRGP, and I was confused. Anyway, reading this now… I see why. Check it out.
A SciFI Gamelit Snippet:
She threw herself at the bastards, quickly destroying them, then stepped back and looked down. The sword glowed to its full potential, and her last blue circle filled in.
A rush of energy filled her, tingling up from the suit. She felt it growing thicker, stronger… better.
As if she had just leveled up. Holy shit. This was too much fun. She checked, and sure enough, the lights had reset back at zero.
With a new zest for the fight, she charged into the cavern, her battle cry piercing the darkness. Now the creatures were falling left and right, but she noticed that the blue lights weren’t filling up quite as fast as before. When she came to a fork in the tunnels, a light appeared inches from her face and she nearly stumbled back, not expecting that. (more…)
Here is the plan for my next few releases. I hope to stick to it, but consider it more of an “I hope to…” style plan than anything concrete. Stay tuned!
Don’t forget to FOLLOW ME on Amazon to ensure you don’t miss a release.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Everyone should be reading Will Wight. Here’s why I’m so adamant: For me, it was Will’s books that got me into self-publishing.
I was a snob, kind of, having been through the Johns Hopkins MA in writing program and then working at Telltale as a writer. At the time, I’d go to writing conferences and submit to traditional agents, thinking that was the only way to go. Asking my friends for great books to read while waiting for the next Game of Thrones, someone recommended a Will Wight book, and I was blown away. Not only was it amazing, super fun, and one of the most well-thought out fantasy books I had read in a long time, it was self-published!
That book was the first in the Traveler’s Gate trilogy, and I’ve loved all of his books since then. He even got on the phone with me a couple times back then, before I’d published anything, and been super supportive. He inspired me, and his books continue to make me smile, to help me through tough times. Not that my life is tough — it’s amazing, because of readers like you… and that’s, as I said, in large part thanks to Will. One big happy circle.
All that said, he recently published the 6th book in his Cradle series, and it has been kicking major butt on Amazon. Up to number two in the whole store, I hear. WOWSERS! Apparently, everyone else agrees with me that Will Wight is one of the top authors out there. Not just in fantasy, but overall.
So if you haven’t yet, give his books a chance. You’ll love them!

If you’re reading author Justin Sloan’s science fiction, space fantasy, or SciFi Gamelit, this is the group for you!
Space Dragons are AMAZING
Who here doesn’t love space dragons? It’s fun, right? You get science fiction, you get dragons. Sometimes there are elements of magic, lasers, explosions, aliens, exploring cool planets. Awesomeness! With that in mind, I wanted to share some out there now, including my own. I also have a new series in this style coming in 2018, so stay tuned!
Here’s what’s great about these stories – they follow the traditions of science fiction, but don’t hold back. They let us truly immerse ourselves in worlds never dreamed of, with magic and magical beasts in the way that expand our creative minds and give us that nostalgic feel of fantasy. What do you like about them?
