    The NYT bestselling, gun filled, monster shooting, action/horror/fantasy, novel series that originated on TFL and here on THR is back. #4, Monster Hunter Legion, is out today.

    For those of you not familiar with this, I originally wrote Monster Hunter International because of a Lawdog thread about horror movie lines. It was edited and proofed by the other THR mods. Then after getting rejected by everybody in the publishing industry, I self published it and sold it on gun forums. It was a huge hit, so then I got a publishing contract for Baen Books. It just sort of blew up huge after that.

    A few years later I've published 7 books, have 18 more under contract, across 5 series, and I've sold the TV rights to MHI. Book 4 is out today.

    Link to Amazon.com Monster Hunter Legion.


    Because I usually get a ton of THR folks at these, here are the dates/places for the Monster Hunter Legion book tour.

    September 5 - Layton Utah B&N 7-9PM
    September 6 - Burlington, MA B&N 7-9PM
    September 8 - Hicksville Public Library, Hicksville NY 2-4PM
    September 9 - Carle Place, NY B&N 2-4PM
    September 11 - Willow Grove, PA B&N 7-9PM
    September 12 - Mercerville, NJ Book Trader of Hamilton 7-9PM
    September 13 - Ellicott City, MD B&N 7-9PM
    September 14 - Bethesda, MD B&N 7-9PM
    September 15 - Ft. Belvoir, VA Base Exchange 12-2PM
    September 16 - Fort Meade, MD Base Exchange 1-3PM
    September 18 - Minneapolis, MN Uncle Hugos 5-7PM

    Swing by and say hi.

    My copy should be waiting on me when I get home. If you ever do a signing in North Alabama I will make sure to come by.

    Congratulations! I'm still working on Alpha, but since I picked your books up I'm a big fan. And I'm not a fan of many books.

    I preordered a personalized signed copy from Uncle Hugo's. Any idea when those will be shipping?

    Dangit! There goes the weekend.

    Remember, you have to post a list of all the new guns you've loaded into this new novel.

    Thanks Larry! Kids go back to School tomorrow, I needed something to read :D

    If my mother in law doesn't ambush me and strip the book from my possession as It enters the house that is.

    Pffft! I bought the e-ARC, what have you done for me lately? Churn out another Grimnoir and I'll take you off my "slacker" list.




    btw, I was a Baen reader long before I was a gun-bunny. I just got into firearms about 3-4 years before MHI came out. Nice confluence of hobbies for me, so thanks!

    I hate Amazon.

    "Order Placed:
    July 1, 2012"

    "Description:

    We've received your order, but we haven't started preparing it for shipment yet."

    "Delivery Estimate: Thursday September 13, 2012 - Monday September 17, "

    I've been to Arizona 3 times since I first got published. I obviously love Arizona. :p

    I'll be back in the South next year. 2011's tour was western states, 2012 is eastern. 2013 looks like Texas and across the south. I'm doing LibertyCon in Chatanooga and I might be doing WorldCon in San Antonio. Not sure about DragonCon yet, but I love it.

    Working on that now.

    This is a great series, for those of you who haven't read it I strongly recommend it.

    I just bought MHI from Baen, but haven't gotten to it yet.

    It's a pain to buy fron Baen. Your books need to be on Amazon.
