The 2022 Annual Collection: What to Know
The Very Latest on the First Print Edition of 365 Infantry
UPDATE #1: We’ve got a very fortunate helping hand getting this out to you fine folks. The book is currently live on Lulu! For $10 USD, grab our first year of adventures!
UPDATE #2: After plenty of toiling (and waiting), the Collection is officially live on Amazon! Also for $10 USD, you can bring home all the electric excitement of the past year faster. Fair warning though, we’re still ironing out a formatting bug with the page numbers. It’s a minor error and does not interfere with the legibility of the text. We’ll update you when the issue is 100% solved.
So, after a month of blood, sweat, tears, & plenty of last-minute snafus, we are finally here. Just at the finish line, though not quite crossed yet. Let me explain:
The Good News
The book exists. The manuscript has been made, the cover art created, and has been gone over as much as I humanly could. Some of it might I’m still learning, I’m still growing as a publisher and editor, but considering the effort put in on my part, I don’t mind tooting my own horn. It is a solid first book if I do say so myself. Worst case scenario, any major errors will be fixed in revised editions.
I have also sent for a proof copy to survey the handiwork on the physical page. The Collection will be sold for $10 USD in English-speaking territories, and will set the going rate for all future annual collections going forward.
The Not-So-Good News
As you can see here, working down to the wire doesn’t always pay off in the ways you may think. After my word processor gave me the greatest scare of my life, I spent an entire night, through to the wee hours of this very morning, nailing down a final format, as little things such as page numbers were often changing with each pass.
I also neglected to consider review time. Kindle Direct Publishing’s review periods can last as long as three days (72 hours), meaning, at the very latest it will be available for purchase the 3rd or 4th of February, and at the very earliest (God-willing) later on today.
What it Means for You
Simply put, everything will be happening just a hair off schedule. Not the end of the world, though not as I would have hoped. In the future, I’ll definitely work to have such omnibuses compiled and edited well in advance. All the same, it will be out very shortly and we will update this post and subscribers personally via email when the link is live.
In the meantime, as a consolation prize, I’ll share the opening sequence of “Lions Among the Lambs,” the backdoor pilot of our brand-new spy thriller serial “Steeled Spies,” which will be run under our paid subscription model. For as little as $5/Month or $50/Year, gain access to this series and so many more. Now while we wait in the foyer, enjoy a slice of classic spy cool that, very soon, will be available to enjoy on the printed page.
May God Bless You and this Force. Read on Soldier!

Congrats! Will you offer an option for an ebook omnibus version? I wanted to buy the paperback from Lulu, but the shipping charges make it very expensive. I don't want to pay for shipping that's almost as much as the book. Thanks!
