    Welcome to KBoards, Or Welcome Back ;) OR Hi, glad you're still here. :D Congratulations on the book!  :)

    Much of what follows you should already be aware of, as it was included in the information you agreed to when you signed up. So please consider this to be just a friendly reminder. :) (The posting of this 'welcome letter' doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so we post this note in every thread. :) )

    KBoards is a Fan forum for Readers, Writers and Kindle Lovers. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

    A brief recap of our rules follows:

    --Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function or the Kboards bookmark tool available on each thread) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information.  You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

    --We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

    --While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days.  Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

    --We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

    --Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!  Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.  For information on more ways to promote here on KBoards, be sure to check out this thread:

    For Second, just figuring out how to be human is bad enough.  Having existed ninety-seven years without free will, she is unimaginably naive, and not always able to connect emotions to the corresponding actions/reactions.  But she is no child, and despite her minimal experience, she is committed to earning a spot on the crew of Longshot.  Though given the violence and craziness that follows the ship around, this may be no easy task...see for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER: IMPERIAL AMBITIONS, only $.99 on Amazon!

    Jake Gaderi is a cyborg far from home.  Tossed out by his own people for asking questions they weren't comfortable with, he's thrown in with Rex Vahl and the crew of Longshot.  But even being seven feet tall and mostly metal cant' prepare him for the type of fight that is to come.  Having spent most of his life thinking himself near invulnerable, he now has to face his own mortality in the name of doing what's right.  Seems a man turned into a cyborg is still just a man in the end.  See for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER: IMPERIAL AMBITIONS, only $.99 on Amazon...

    Rex Vahl knew being the Commonwealth's go-to guy for Chaos Quarter missions would be a tough gig, given the violent nature of the region. But the job is the job, and he has a track-record when it came to doing the impossible.  But now he's facing off against the might of the powerful Europan Empire, with a mind-distorting woman locked in a spare closet; all while trying to keep the locals from shooting him in the back.  It's almost enough to make him wish he could find a more boring way to make a living...almost.

    Aetius Fitz-Titus has a lot to prove.  Despite being illegitimate, he should be basking in the glory of being an emperor's son.  But whispers follow him wherever he goes.  His mother bore a traitorous son before she bore him, and the stigma sticks despite his illustrious father.  Determined to silence his critics, this young Europan noble will go to any length to prove his greatness.  And if that involves killing or enslaving people, then so be it.  What happens when this raging basket-case comes face to face with Rex Vahl and his scrappy crew?  See for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER: IMPERIAL AMBITIONS.

    To the Europan Empire domination and power are all that exist.  Domination of noble over serf, of king over lord, of their Divine Order over the wild ways of the rabble.  And when they discover the a colony of their serfs, the people they consider to be livestock, are not only living free but thriving...well something must be dine about that.  A message must be sent, even if if means going deep into the lawless, backwaters of the Chaos Quarter to do it.  And should somebody try to stand in their way, they'll just have to steam-roll over them, by any means necessary.

    See for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER: IMPERIAL AMBITIONS.

    The Chaos Quarter isn't exactly a nice place to be, and Rex Vahl barely survived his last trip.  But a mission is a mission, and now he and his crew must once again go toe-to-toe with pirates, warlords, religious zealots, and a host of other issues that people in civilized space just don't have to deal with.  But what he doesn't know, can't know, is that the vicious Europan Empire has also made an excursion into the Quarter.  Now he not only has to deal with the constant minor annoyances, but also with an angry superpower on a mission.  All in a day's works...

    Brandt of the Brandt Company is a renowned mercenary, selling his fleet to the highest bidder.  But when he fell under the power of a genetically modified woman with mind-altering pheromones his company stopped being his and stared being hers.  And she has only one target in mid: Rex Vahl and his ship.  A fight is coming, and it's anyone's guess whether Rex will be able to withstand the assault.  See for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER: IMPERIAL AMBITIONS, only $.99 on Amazon, FREE for Kindle Unlimited!

      The Chaos Quarter isn't exactly a nice place to be, and Rex Vahl barely survived his last trip.  But a mission is a mission, and now he and his crew must once again go toe-to-toe with pirates, warlords, religious zealots, and a host of other issues that people in civilized space just don't have to deal with.  But what he doesn't know, can't know, is that the vicious Europan Empire has also made an excursion into the Quarter.  Now he not only has to deal with the constant minor annoyances, but also with an angry superpower on a mission.  All in a day's works...

      Brandt of the Brandt Company is a renowned mercenary, selling his fleet to the highest bidder.  But when he fell under the power of a genetically modified woman with mind-altering pheromones his company stopped being his and stared being hers.  And she has only one target in mid: Rex Vahl and his ship.  A fight is coming, and it's anyone's guess whether Rex will be able to withstand the assault.  See for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER: IMPERIAL AMBITIONS, only on Amazon, FREE for Kindle Unlimited!

      For Second, just figuring out how to be human is bad enough.  Having existed ninety-seven years without free will, she is unimaginably naive, and not always able to connect emotions to the corresponding actions/reactions.  But she is no child, and despite her minimal experience, she is committed to earning a spot on the crew of Longshot.  Though given the violence and craziness that follows the ship around, this may be no easy task...see for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER: IMPERIAL AMBITIONS

      Jake Gaderi is a cyborg far from home.  Tossed out by his own people for asking questions they weren't comfortable with, he's thrown in with Rex Vahl and the crew of Longshot.  But even being seven feet tall and mostly metal cant' prepare him for the type of fight that is to come.  Having spent most of his life thinking himself near invulnerable, he now has to face his own mortality in the name of doing what's right.  Seems a man turned into a cyborg is still just a man in the end.  See for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER: IMPERIAL AMBITIONS.

      Rex Vahl knew being the Commonwealth's go-to guy for Chaos Quarter missions would be a tough gig, given the violent nature of the region. But the job is the job, and he has a track-record when it came to doing the impossible.  But now he's facing off against the might of the powerful Europan Empire, with a mind-distorting woman locked in a spare closet; all while trying to keep the locals from shooting him in the back.  It's almost enough to make him wish he could find a more boring way to make a living...almost.

      Aetius Fitz-Titus has a lot to prove.  Despite being illegitimate, he should be basking in the glory of being an emperor's son.  But whispers follow him wherever he goes.  His mother bore a traitorous son before she bore him, and the stigma sticks despite his illustrious father.  Determined to silence his critics, this young Europan noble will go to any length to prove his greatness.  And if that involves killing or enslaving people, then so be it.  What happens when this raging basket-case comes face to face with Rex Vahl and his scrappy crew?  See for yourself in CHAOS QUARTER: IMPERIAL AMBITIONS.

        "Do read this book, people.
        Escaped slaves have to fight off their former masters, because the former masters cannot tolerate even the idea of these "subhuman vermin" threatening their entire society by their very free existence. Our Heroes from the first volume of _Chaos Quarter_ fly to the rescue. The story, action , and character development continues to evolve. I have grown to love these characters and wish to read more of their adventures!"

        The story is a knock out. I read it immediately after CHAOS QUARTER and I was confused about all the new characters and the family antics, so if you get confused give it a chance

        Lots of deep thinking philosophy dished out in enjoyable ways. One HELL of a war. New characters are wonderful. Super sequence..."
