Audiobook

25 04 2012

Howdy Everyone!

I just wanted to give y’all an update for April.

Starwarden (Book 2)

I’m about half way through the first round of editing.

I’ve contacted my cover artist, and he’s working on the cover. I’ll post pictures as soon as I get some.

Now the really good news!

I’m working on getting a contract set up for an audiobook for the Zochtil! Once it comes out it will be available from Audible.com, Amazon.com and hopefully iTunes. I won’t give any more information than that until the contract is set in stone, but you’ll be happy with the narrator I’ve got lined up. He’s the best. I plan to have the audiobook finished up by the end of August, so not long after book 2 comes out.

Just wanted to give y’all an update.

Book 2 in the Almek Manning series, the Starwarden is scheduled for release in June. I finished the second draft yesterday. I will spend the next month working on book three, at which point I will switch back to the Starwarden and begin the final editing process.

Sneak Peak at Book 2: The Starwarden

Part 1: The Academy

Part 2: Dalton Space Force

Part 3: The Starwarden

Also I pay tribute to Robert Heinlein again in this book. One of the ships that Almek Manning serves on is the Robert Anson Heinlein, a Fast Cruiser Carrier.

 

On another note, I am up to four reviews. I’ll post the fourth later.





Third Review

2 02 2012
5.0 out of 5 stars An exciting read., February 2, 2012
By Carol Blackhurst (Orlando, FL USA)
This review is from: The Zochtil (Almek Manning Book 1) (Kindle Edition)

As a life-long fan of science fiction, I found “The Zochtil” to be a very entertaining. The characters are engaging and interesting. The story is a fast-paced, action-packed experience. Mr. Dalley weaves many new and intriguing sci-fi aspects into his tale. A great beginning to a sure to be thrilling series.





My Second Review

****

Great Talent

The Zochtil is the debut novel of J.A. Dalley and is a great read. From start to finish Dalley keeps you pulled into the story, wanting to know what’s coming next.
Although he credits this as a Military Sci-Fi, I believe anyone will enjoy this great book. I can’t wait to read his sequels, and maybe a prequel.
