Liquid Cool: Latest Novels and More!

It’s funny when I look back at it. I was first working on my new Liquid Cool cyberpunk detective series in 2015 and wanted to share, so I wrote a quick prequel (These Mean Streets, Darkly). It introduced readers to the Liquid Cool universe but…more than a few of you were annoyed and said “love it! But now what? Where’s the debut novel?!”

Well, I've more than made up for it. Liquid Cool (Book 1), the debut novel, has over 200 reviews on Amazon–most of them are 4 and 5 stars. I released both Book 2 (Blade Gunner) and 3 (NeuroDancer) in March of this year. Then in May, I released Book 4: The Electric Sheep Massacre. That’s a lot of product in a short period of time. A lot of you couldn’t be happier. If you’re wondering why I’m so focused on Liquid Cool this year, you’ll see next year—believe me (but I can’t say any more; this is a Liquid Cool post).

Here are the announcements:

  1. A New Book Cover for Blade Gunner (Liquid Cool, Book 2). I liked the old cover, but I love the new one! Why did I change it? For those who’ve read the novel, the Blade Gunner is a formidable force. My instincts were that the cover diminished that reality by featuring minor characters. The new cover keeps it simple: Cruz, the detective, and the Blade Gunner—that’s it. Much more powerful.
  2. Name & Cover Reveal / Release Date / Pre-Order for New Liquid Cool Novel: I had mentioned in a previous blog post article that when I wrote Liquid Cool books 2 through 4, one after the other, that I was very tempted to simply write Book 5 too. In fact, I already knew the story, for both Books 5 and 6, but I stopped to write a book in another series. Well, Book 5 is done. Liquid Cool Book 5 is I, Alien Hunter! As many of you know, my Liquid Cool series was inspired by Ridley Scott’s classic sci-fi movie Blade Runner, so Alien Hunter will be released the same day as the new Blade Runner 2049 movie—October 6th! You'll be able to get Book 5 at a discount price on Pre-order on Amazon (Kindle) or Kobo (all others) up until the release date.
  3. More! I have another big surprise for Liquid Cool fans. The same month I release I, Alien Hunter, I will also release Liquid Cool Book 6–A.I. Confidential. But that’s not the surprise. What is it? You’ll have to read the novel, but the moment you reach that part in the book, you’ll be saying: “No, way!”

How's that for announcements? What do you think about the new upcoming Liquid Cool novels? Leave a comment below.

    I am very interested in reading both I, Alien Hunter and A.I. Confidential and I can’t wait to find out why I would be saying no way after reaching a certain point in A.I. Confidential!

    I like the cover art. Cool and blue, evoking the title…and you’re right, narrowing it down to the main characters definitely makes it more striking!

    Great series so far. Looking forward to more in the future ( more so than the new Blade Runner movie. The original is a classic and i can’t see a new movie doing it the justice it deserves ). Keep writing and I’ll keep reading.

    This is the recommendation that I wrote on the Kobo web site about the Liquid Cool series: I’ve just finished reading the entire Liquid Cool series, in order, except for the prequel. I read the prequel after first reading Liquid Cool. I’ve enjoyed his writing as it’s been a long time since I’ve experience good cyberpunk novels. Until now, Rucker, Sterling, and Gibson have provided my cyberpunk reading enjoyment. I look forward to reading more of this author’s work.

    I love the series & book covers! Any plans to take your cyber detective into the world of print for those of us who would love to have hard copies to grace our real world bookshelves?
