The 3rd Roak book is out now!
Get to the buying, the reading, and the reviewing! Tell your friends! Spread the word!
Razer Station is one of the most notorious stations in the galaxy. Criminals, con artists, freaks, rebels, junkies, and smugglers inhabit the space station that floats at the outer edge of civilization.
It’s Roak’s kind of place.
But, Roak isn’t on Razer for a little R&R; he’s there on a job.
For Roak, it should be an easy job- track down an old tech that has been targeted by several corporations and deliver the tech to the corporations.
Except Razer Station is never that accommodating and Roak’s easy job quickly turns into a nightmare battle for survival and a race across the station before it all goes up in flames.
The third chapter in the Roak saga continues with more grit, more grime, and more bodies than ever. Roak is pissed and gunning for anyone and everyone that dares get in his way!
That’s right, folks, it is time again for Dragon*Con!
That giant con down in Hotlanta every Labor Day weekend is upon us. I missed last year, but I’ll be attending this year. Check out my schedule below and if you are in Downtown Atlanta over Labor Day weekend then make sure to hit up one of my panels or check out my reading on Saturday.

For those in the know (that means folks on my mailing list), you know I have an ongoing contest. Not sure what it is? Here ya go!
So, what does this mean? Well, through the rest of the month I’m adding a second contest for anyone that writes an Amazon review! If you write a review anytime from now until August 31st, and email me a link to it (jakebiblefiction at gmail dot com), then you are entered to win a signed paperback or free audiobook or your name as a character in one of my upcoming novels!
This is a second contest, folks. Not an add-on. If you’re eligible for both then you can win TWICE! Hell, you could win thrice! For every review you write, and send me a link to, you get an entry into the extra contest!
To make it easy, click the banner pick below and you’ll be able to go to the list of my novels on Amazon. Review one (Nebula Risen, Mech Corps, and Stone Cold Bastards could use some love), send me the link, and you’re good to know!
Well, isn’t this exciting!
The very first announcement of my mailing list winners! Huzzah!
The Winners are….
Name as character in one of my novels– Gene! (No last name given, so it’s just Gene. Nah, I’ll email Gene and see what his last name is. I assume he’s a he from the spelling, but I could be wrong. It happens sometimes.)
Free Audiobook code– Pam E. (PJ!)
Signed Paperback– Charlena Bella! ( I may have to use that name in a book, too! Killer name!)
Emails will be sent to these fine folks. No, wait, they aren’t just folks, they’re WINNERS!
How does one become a winner? Well, first you have to be part of my mailing list. Not part of my mailing list? FOR SHAME!
I kid. Nah, just click the pic and sign up. Monthly drawings, yo! Or, better yet, sign up for the Sci-Fi Bridge giveaway and not only get added to my mailing list, but also get free books AND have a chance at winning 25+ ebooks! Here’s how:

Its Captains are excited to bring you a Dystopian and Post Apocalyptic Giveaway that’s sure to keep you up at night!

Okay, so I have decided it is time to get serious about the mailing list. You probably don’t care too much about the intricacies of the business side of writers’ lives, but we writers eventually have to come down from our Imagination Cloud (trademark 2017) and play in the reality sandbox. Stupid reality sandbox. All the bummer cats crap in there…
Anyhoo, since I’m gonna get serious about my mailing list then that means I need to get serious about giving you, my faithful readers, reasons for signing up and staying signed up. I understand most of you stick with me out of the kindness of your hearts, but your compassion isn’t enough. Sorry. NOT ENOUGH!
Here’s how it all works-
- When you sign up for the mailing list, you will automatically be entered into my Character Name pool. It’s not a real pool; no swimming skills required. No, it’s a list of names I can draw from when I need to create a new character. Considering I write a novel a month, I need a lot of character names. Y’all get to be immortalized! And all you have to do is add your email to the mailing list. That’s it. No extra work. And this isn’t a monthly contest. It’s a Whenever I Need A Name contest. Maybe twice a month, maybe more. What a bargain!
- So, you are signed up for the mailing list. Great. That means you will receive my monthly newsletter and special announcements in your inbox. However, that is only truly great if you open the emails! Due to the wonders of modern science, I can actually see who opens the emails. That means another contest! Once a month, I’ll draw a name from those folks that opened the emails. You get an entry for each unique email. If you open the monthly newsletter and a special announcement email then that’s two entries! Bam! What’s the prize? A free credit code to Audible! You can pick any audiobook you want, although I’m sure you’ll pick one of mine. This contest is monthly and will have at least one winner. I may pick two if I’m feeling frisky.
- Oh, now, here’s the big one! I have a bookshelf filled with author copies of my novels. FILLED! Time to sign those puppies and send them off to some lucky winners! Just like above, I not only see who opens the emails, but who clicks through to one of the links. Also, just like above, if you click through to a link in one of the unique emails, you get an entry into a contest to receive a signed paperback of one of my novels. You choose the title (subject to inventory on hand). It’s gonna be a one click per email kind of thing. But, if you click through on a monthly newsletter and on a special announcement email then that’s two entries for the month. Don’t worry, I’ll keep track (MailChimp will keep track, really).
That’s about it. Now y’all are in the know. If you have questions, please ask. I want this to be fun for everyone!
Thanks, y’all! Cheers!
[Fine Print BS: You can only win one prize per contest, per month, per quarter. If you get picked for the Audible code and the paperback, I’ll email you and ask which you want. You choose and I pick a new name for the other prize. Once you win that prize, you can’t win it again until the next quarter. Keeping it fair for everyone. But, you can win an Audible code one month and a paperback the next month. After that you have to wait until the next quarter to be entered again for either/both. Make sense? Oh, and I’ll email to ask about whether you want your name used or not. Your choice, of course. And one last bit o’ the fine print: paperbacks are US only. Sorry, but it is crazy expensive to ship overseas (or even to Canada). BUT, if you win, we’ll work something cool out. May even be better than a signed paperback!]
