Win a Trilogy of Trilogies

Years ago, when Jay Posey started down the path of his The Legends of the Duskwalker series, he was joined by two mighty allies: Ramez Naam – brilliant technologist and author of the Nexus trilogy – and Wesley Chu – martial arts master and author of the Tao trilogy. Together they embarked upon a quest to produce three books each, all epic in their own way, and all set to take over the world of sci-fi.

On August 4 (USA/Can) / August 6 (UK/R.o.W) the release of Jay’s Dawnbreaker will mark the end of the journey of the Trilogy of Trilogies.

Robot Round-Up 12/3/15

Good afternoon Robot fans,

Eeek, it’s Friday 13th again tomorrow! Why tempt fate by leaving the house? We recommend you avoid ladders, black cats and the peril of meeting your doppelgänger and instead spend the day under the covers with a cup of (not too hot) tea and a good book. Just maybe skip page 13.

This week we’re getting very excited about the last in Wesley Chu’s popular Tao trilogy, The Rebirths of Tao, which is released on 2nd April (UK) and 7th April (USA).

Guest Post: Wesley Chu on his book anniversary

On April 30th, 2013, The Lives of Tao was released upon the world. Today is officially my one year anniversary of being a published author. To be honest, this date crept up on me when I sat down to write this post. So much has happened. How could it have only been a year?

Not gonna lie;I feel like I’ve been playing this writing game for a long time now, as if I was living dog years or maybe fruit fly lives or what not. I couldn’t quite figure out how the past year felt so different from the ones
