Beat Down 2 - The Heist hits No.1!

Hey there, punks.  Just wanted to say a big thanks to all you badasses as well as give myself a pat on the literary back because thanks to you (and of course to me because I wrote it, haha) Beat Down 2 - The Heist is sitting proudly at No.1 on the Hot New Releases list in the Amazon Kindle Comedy store.

Here's the pic to prove it (as if you'd ever doubt me!) -

Once again, I'd just like to say thanks to all the punks who bought this.  Seriously, if you guys were here I'd share a bottle of badass champagne with you, but alas, as you're not I'll just drink it all myself.  In fact, I just did.  Badass.

Big up also to Slamet Mujiono, whose awesome cover pic is no doubt responsible for some of the adoration Russell T. Goode is picking up.  Dude, you rock.  And Belinda, man's she's smokin'.  So glad I made her up.

Okay, off to smash some rocks with my bare hands.

Episode updates for parts 3 & 4

Hey punks, Michael S. Hunter here again with a bit of good news.  Not only is episode 3 well on its way, but I just couldn't resist getting stuck in to episode 4.  As yet untitled, it's currently set in a quaint Italian hill town and is going to feature not just friend against foe but friend against friend, as one of Russell's buddies gets caught up in something he can't control.  It's going to be epic, just you wait.  Also, there's bad news for Russell as Belinda's mother, a former female wrestler whose voice is so low she causes glass to unbreak, and exponent of the infamous Trainwreck finishing move, wants to come along for the ride.  I wouldn't want to be him, that's for sure.

So, we have Episode 3 - Badassaur and Episode 4 - WhatevathehellIwanttocallit due soon.  We're talking Jan 7th and Feb 7th, but you know me, those dates mean nothing to Michael S. Hunter and those novellas will be up whenever I'm damn well ready, which will be sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, keep your heads down and watch out for roundhouses and robot chickens.

Beat Down - Episode 2 : The Heist cover reveal

Hello again punks, Michael S. Hunter here.  Just wanted to show you the cover for Russell T. Goode's next adventure.  Here's the original art work by the extremely talented Slamet Mujiono.  In this picture we have are introduced to Russell's girlfriend (who was off shopping in Milan with her mother in Episode 1, if you remember - don't worry, the dreaded mother-in-law will no doubt be making an appearance in a future episode!) who is a librarian in a homeless shelter by a day and a kickass female wrestler by night.  And on the other side of Russell you can see a ski jump ... why is there a ski jump in Episode 2?  All I can tell you is it has something to do with chickens and a mysterious stranger ...

And here's the final cover with titles added by the wonderful Su at Novel Prevue, who did the covers for my best mate Chris Ward's awesome novels The Tube Riders and The Man Who Built the World.   If you haven't read any of his stuff then check it out.  While he's not as cool as me or Russell T. Goode (come on, who is?) his books still rock.

In The Heist, Russell gets home to find out someone has broken into his greenhouse and stolen all his prized vegetables, the essence of which is used to make the special formula Beat Down! drink which makes Russell even more badass than usual.   Searching for clues, Russell hears a disturbance in the mysterious chicken radio which leads him and the rest of the gang to Scotland and the shores of the mysterious Loch Guess.  There they will have to do battle with Kurt Sniveller's minions to save the world once again.

Beat Down 2 - The Heist is a comedy action adventure novella not to be missed.

Michael S. Hunter over and out.  Laters, punks.
