Good news to share with you and all the readers of Bullet, Robot, as well as any others who may care…
…it’s time to return to the cruel hopeful new world of Bullet, Robot.
After five solid months of planning the story world and building its architecture, I can now set the characters free to move, fight, love and live within it.
In short, the universe of Bullet, Robot is becoming real and coming alive on a new level.
“Real” in the sense that my only remaining task is to show it to you.
Where is the new story?
The new novella is tentatively named Return to Bullet, Robot. You can find the completed first part of chapter one by clicking here:
Where can I find the previous parts of the story?
All parts are designed to stand on their own while enticing you to read more. Hence, you don’t “need” to read Enter:Bullet, Robot in order to enjoy the upcoming stories. It’s comparable to watching a movie in the original Star Wars trilogy without seeing the one(s) that came before it.
What makes this project different?
One of my larger goals for this project is to create a truly independent approach to self-published fiction on the Internet. Imagine knowing that the price of a book (instead of an arbitrary percentage) is paid directly to the author. Imagine an even simpler way to read books on any device, and never have to worry about whether or not your version is the most up-to-date one available. Imagine being able to enjoy true multimedia immersion — podcasts, book readings by the author, even video — as part of the reading experience if you want it.
This vision has been growing alongside the process of designing the Return to Bullet, Robot world. I want to be able to work on making it a reality as soon as possible so that independent authors can be free from the clutches of giants with names like Apple and Amazon. We can only make a choice when we have a choice to make. My choice is to create an alternative that benefits the writers and readers above all.
Join the Bullet, Robot Readers Club and tell two friends who might be interested. The more members we have, the more time I can afford to invest in both the story and the larger goals mentioned above.

I’m excited to finally be at the writing stage again for this story, and I hope you’re ready for some of the best storytelling I’ve ever composed. Every story is a new writing challenge — if you do anything more than once, you might as well aim to get better and better, right? Of course.
