What's New with Bill Eckel

Hey, Y’all. Welcome to 2022. It’s going to be a fabulous year. Science Fiction Fantasies, Tales and Origins has been uploaded to who will distribute it among 42 platforms. Shem’s Quest, Shem o’ the West audio book is complete and as soon as Science Fiction Fantasies is approved out of QC, I will upload it as well. In addition, both books will also be available on Audible.

If you haven’t yet signed up for my email list to get informational updates, then I suggest you do so now. As a thank you, you will receive a special treat, an mp3 file with the first five minutes or so of Shem’s Quest, narrated by my son, Daymon.

I admit, I muffed the rollout in September. (I need a team.) The edit of Hard kill by David Farland set me back a couple of months; however I now have three completed novels, okay, one is a novella, two audio books and a third in preproduction.  Last year was about writing, this year is for marketing.

No, I haven’t forgotten Space Force. I’m 56,000 words into it and will be getting back to it before Spring.

I need a team. If you have any skills in marketing or eBook formatting and would like to volunteer some time, let me know.

Buy my books.

I’ve been writing every since my mother told me to sit down and shut up. I have written a little bit of everything. Presently, I’m into ancient aliens and science fiction. My stories are more of a military sci-fi/space opera than hard science. I have two novels in this genre. One, “Hard Kill,” is soon to be released.

The other is “Cadet Adam.” It’s available on Amazon in both eBook and print edition.

What’s funnier than the truth? Dollar Bill puts an exclamation mark on the old adage. “You can’t make this stuff up”. From the iconic “Yard Sale” to “Abducted” Dollar Bill takes a simpler look at life.
