Catching Up on the Latest with 365 Infantry
We’re keeping things short, sweet, and to the point this week, because we have some big ticket items for our wonderful paid subscribers, and news of a special little project taking full flight in our final update for the month of April. Let’s roll!
Steeled Spies #1: The Towers Electric - Agent Roger Steele is in the heart of Haven trying to parse out the honest protesters from the Board’s moles, shaking leader Lucille Devenreux to her core as the whole of her organization, Haven Reformation, is under fire. When the duo teams up to investigate a possible setup
Solar Joint Stories #1: The Tale of The Duelling Rods - Soldier Rod Garrett, with his loving gal Bette by his side, spins a tall tale of deceitful Duellists and redneck hellraising while kicking back some brews at Doc’s Oasis.
Stand By For Action! The Anderson Influence on 365 Infantry - In this month’s behind-the-scenes article, we take a look at how Thunderbirds and Space: 1999 creator Gerry Anderson inspired some of the many elements that makes 365 Infantry the series it is today!
STEELED SPIES! - I’ve elected to keep “Lions Among the Lambs” free-to-read until the end of April. A special thank you for all your support thus far.
Set to debut on May 5th on Bandcamp, this collaboration between series creator Jacob Calta and Ruthless creator John V. Page represents the official anthem of the 365th, an epic metallic instrumental with a drive and electric energy recalling titans of heavy rock like Black Sabbath and Deep Purple. The single will be sold for $3 USD
BANDCAMP FRIDAY ONLY! - Buyers of the single will get THREE FREE MONTHS of our paid membership. This steal stacks with our permanent promo on the Alan Firedale soundtrack, which means you can get SIX FREE MONTHS for a fraction of the cost! This is a ONE-DAY deal only!
WRITING! - As always, work continues on all fronts, with all five stories and the latest script for Alan Firedale growing with each passing session.

Seeing as the Byte of the Week was shared at the front-end of the newsletter, I’ll say my farewells to you, dear Reader, and the month of April, with May coming fast into view and production ready to rev up and ride out with a whole new batch of exciting stories. May God Bless You and this Force.
Until next time!
