Hello Friends! I'm back. Read on for exciting news.

In this edition: Farawayer on pre-order, and what's next?

This preview is only for newsletter subscribers - you're the first to know. If you didn't get this via email, you coulda known sooner! Sign up at billydecarlo.com:-)

I've been away a while. The past few years have been tough for everyone, and life happens. I hope I'm back for good and will continue to publish consistently. The good news is that I have a wealth of material already in the works! Keep reading for more updates.

If you've enjoyed my books, I can always use more reviews. They help authors to qualify for certain promotions and of course sell more books. If you *really* enjoyed one or more, please post a link to my author page on your social media accounts.

 
Farawayer is on pre-order!

My first stand-alone literary fiction novel is on pre-order, with a publication date of May 28, 2022. It will also be on Kindle Unlimited and in paperback on that date. You can pre-order it from Amazon at: https://amzn.to/3vhhUEc

The Audible audiobook should be available at a later date. Amazon doesn't allow pre-orders for paperbacks, so it will just magically appear at the same link on May 28. The blurb is below:

Have you ever wanted to just walk away from it all? Be completely free?

Go with Levi Terra as he does just that, hitchhiking and motorcycling through early 1980s America after he's cast out of military service and cast away by his first love.

He's disavowed strings, attachments, and becoming ensnared by the hamster wheel of life. The problem is, relationships don't come without them, and beneath it all, he wants to be loved.

Will the pull of family, his past mistakes, or the tragic event that occurs on the road upend his quest for true freedom?

Farawayer is a sweeping literary travelogue that invokes hints of Kerouac's On the Road and Salinger's Catcher in the Rye. Levi's travels explore themes around racism, religion, friendship, family, homophobia, and the true meaning of quality in the one life we're granted. It is a lyrical, philosophical journey across the beauty of a country and its people, a snapshot in time. Levi engages with truckers, cops, bikers, zealots, predators, and those in the underbelly of society, with whom he most relates.

If you loved Amor Towles' The Lincoln Highway, you should love Farawayer!

 
 
As far as what's next? I have a book of short stories that I hope to also publish around the same time as Farawayer. They're snapshots of life in the vein of my favorite, Raymond Carver. I'm also working on a prequel and sequel to Farawayer, for folks who like that sort of thing. That should take me through the next year or so, God willing and the creek don't rise.

The final book in my new science fiction trilogy is done. The title is War-Bot: DroidMesh Trilogy Book 3. You can buy it from your favorite bookstore at:

Amazon | Kobo | iTunes | Google | B&N Nook

The paperback is also done and the Audible audiobook should be available in the next few weeks or so. This series is suitable for ages 12 through adult. I could really use your help to spread the word and get some reviews. Here's the synopsis:

Hell hath no fury as an android spurned.

The remnants of humanity and newly awakened, sentient androids of Novae Terrae have come to an uneasy truce. Robotics scientist Harley Harris has sorted out his relationship issues, leaving behind an angry former partner.

Will the peace hold after the androids come to the artificial intelligence-driven conclusion that humans are inferior and unnecessary?

Will humanity survive?

Love-Bot: DroidMesh Trilogy Book 2 Note: Unfortunately, I found a few errors in this book that had slipped by myself and my editor, as well as some formatting issues. I've placed a new version on all book sites. If you bought and downloaded this previously, but haven't read it, please request the refreshed copy. On the positive side, the Audible audiobook is done and should be available in a few days!
 
In Vigilante Angels news, I think I'm going to write a prequel novella to use as an intro to the series and giveaway to entice more email list signups. Let me know if you have any good ideas. What glimpse into Tommy's past would you like to see?

The first book in my new science fiction trilogy is done. The title is Sped-Bot: DroidMesh Trilogy Book 1. You can buy it from your favorite bookstore at https://www.books2read.com/spedbot. The Audible audiobook should be available in the next week or so. This series is suitable for ages 12 through adult. I could really use your help to spread the word and get some reviews. Here's the synopsis:

All work and no play makes an android a dull toy.

The remnants of human civilization create their own utopia on an alien planet. A brilliant robotic scientist breaks the rules in an attempt to make his impaired son whole. Meshing android and human minds is considered impossible, a societal taboo, and illegal.

Can the sorrow of a father, the challenge of a feat never accomplished, and the promise of normalcy for a son who has never known it motivate a man beyond his ethical boundaries?

What happens when it all goes wrong?

Book 2 (Love-Bot) and Book 3 (War-Bot) are on preorder. They will publish in June and July, respectively. 
 
In Vigilante Angels news, I'm going to be doing a sale on Vigilante Angels Book I: The Priest for 99 cents very soon. Watch my Facebook page and Twitter feed!
