Realms of Time Audio Book now available!


I LOVE the audiobook versions of the Scrapyard Ship series.  L. J. Ganser does (AGAIN!) a remarkable job as the voice for the series and with the just released audiobook version of Realm of Time (book #4) – out today, he has REALLY REALLY REALLY! outdone himself.

Experiencing these books through the audiobook version and listening to all the voices, the performances, is like being right there on The Lilly — fighting the Craing!

The new  audiobook is available on now (search Realms of Time) and will be available on iTunes and within a day or two… if not already.  Enjoy!!!

A Letter From Prison

photo 1

I received a hand-written letter yesterday from Royce. I don’t know him, but apparently Royce is in prison and has another five and a half years to serve on his sentence. As he describes in his letter, he is what’s called indigent — has no funds to pay for books or magazines.

It seems Royce got hold of my first book, not sure how, Scrapyard Ship and enjoyed it… helped him pass the time there in confinement. I don’t know what he did to get himself locked up, not sure I really want to… but I like the idea that I’ve helped him in some way while he pays his debt to society.

I’ll go ahead and send him all of my books this week. He’s promised to donate them (after he’s read them), to the prison library.

Hang in there Royce… Jason, Ricket, Traveler and Dira are on their way across the universe to help you fight the fight…

So what’s the Status of Craing Dominion?

photoFirst of all… The other day I saw my 21 year-old son reading one of my books (HAB 12) out on the deck. Wow… How cool is that? Maybe he’ll even finish it!!

I’ve received multiple inquiries these last few weeks on the status of Craing Dominion…

It’s coming along! But I’m doing something I haven’t done before… I’m writing two books simultaneously. Both Mad Powers (see previous post) and Craing Dominion are coming along great – I’m enjoying writing two completely different story lines with two completely different protagonists.

Why? You ask….

Imagine writing thousands and thousands of words, day after day… the same story… the same characters. Yes, I understand there is a demand. I love that my readers want more – thank you!! But, after a while my brain goes to jello. Remember, I started Scrapyard Ship less than a year ago… Four full-length novels in nine months. Uhhhg!

So I’m completing the Tapped In full length novel (now called Mad Powers) and really enjoying the break. Yes, Crain Dominion is coming along too – it will be a lot of fun for those involved with the series…

Make sure you email me and get on my mailing list to be notified for new books coming out.

What Happened to Tapped In?

Was asked today… What happened to Tapped In Part 1… !???  It’s no longer available on Amazon – or anywhere…

Here was my response…

I am soooo glad you asked that question, Richard!

Tapped In is/was actually part on of a three part full-length novel.  I took it off the market because it’s being replaced. The name of the new novel is (as of right now) called Mad Powers.

Mad Powers is almost done – being written as I write this. Those that have read Tapped In (Part 1) will be happy to see that the complete Part 1 (Tapped In) Part 2 (Remembered) and Part 3 (Mad Powers) will be available soon in the full length novel – within the next few weeks (by the end of July, 2014)…

Realms of Time – New Cover Design

ROT_2nd_design_medSales of Realms of Time are doing GREAT – Thank you. But after repeated prodding from several of my book’s loyal readers, I’ve taken their advice and added in the image of The Lilly… Hey!… A space Scifi book has to have a spaceship for goodness sakes! I’ve also added more contrasting (more noticeable) background colors).

For those interested in the next book, Craing Dominion, it’s still on track for release in early August, 2014. If you want to know the exact day, you’ll need to get on my email notification list. Send me an email: markwaynemcginnis (@)  Enter: Craing Dominion List in the subject line.

Realms of Time — Now Available


ROT Now available on Amazon…


Welcome to the fourth installment of the Scrapyard Ship series, Realms of Time. Captain Jason Reynolds and his team are up against a new, and unexpected foe—an adversarial force that has every intention of aligning with the powerful and dreaded Craing Empire.

The enemy strikes from Earth’s high orbit, deploying five time-shifting spheres. The spheres are strategically positioned to link-up and set Earth’s clock back 100 years into the past. But when that course of action is interrupted by The Lilly’s crew, the results become far worse. Fluctuating time realms rapidly spread across the globe and threaten to rip the planet apart. Join Jason, Billy, Traveler, Ricket and Dira on their mission as they literally travel to the ends of time to bring Earth back to the twenty-first century.

…For ten points, tell me the names of the three characters portrayed on the new cover….
