    Hi Paul,

    I’m a friend of Mike Luoma’s and I heard a teaser for “The Black” on his podcast. I’m into chapter 4 and really enjoying it. I promised him I’d let you know.

    I’ll be sure to check the rest of your work.

    Best,

    I came across The Black on my way to OKC to visit a client. After downloading The Black and hearing coring mentioned (I was a coring engineer for nine years) I’m now hooked. Fantastic story, great characters and suburb writing! On my way home (DFW) I found myself taking the long way home so I could continue to listen. Well done and cheers!

    It seems that a lot of my favorite authors are having the next book in their series coming out in the next eight weeks.

    But I just discovered (forty years too late) an author from Providence, RI. I was looking on your site to see if you mention him anywhere as an influence. Since he obviously was, looking at the graphic for your next book!

    Yes! So now I have yet ANOTHER book to look forward to! And, YOU will be performing your book again! I have listened to JC Hutchins and Scott Sigler perform their books, and I prefer it that way. Especially since you performed the first two books.

    Can’t wait!

    Paul, I was on Patreon today and I noticed that an account that was created in 2014 under your name. Is this your account?

    I may have found the back-story to The Black… http://bit.ly/28LpiKV

    THANKS for all the fun entertainment. Your stuff is not just a rehash of stuff already on the SyFy Channel!

    Really loved Derelict: Marines and can’t wait for the next book.

    One question though, you seem to use ‘grav-walking’ and ‘mag-walking’ interchangably… is there a difference between the 2 as it didn’t seem to be spelt out in the text?

  8. KATRINA CORNWELL says:

    Hi. I have read the whole “Black” series and watching for another. You are going to put out another in this series, right? It would be cruel to leave us all hanging with the last great book. I will pick up Derelict next, truly believing I am going to be as addicted to this series as your “Black” series. sigh…what power you have over us.

    • Paul Cooley says:

      Howdy, Katrina. Glad to hear you enjoyed the first 3 Black books. Yes, I’ll be writing two more: Evolution and Extinction. I imagine TB4 (Evolution) will be out next summer, as I need to finish Derelict this year. And cruel? Me? Never…

  9. pere says:

    When are we getting a forth ” the black” book. . . Loved the audio books and I want more.

    • Paul Cooley says:

      Howdy. I have a full schedule for the rest of the year, but I plan on getting The Black: Evolution out in 2018. Very glad you enjoyed the first three books and will do my best to close out the series in the next two books.
      Cheers.

        paul i am a new fan and just recently started the black series and wanted to purchase them from what source that i buy from gives you the most direct revenue? as i would like to support your books and writing in general but dont want to use patreon.

        • Paul Cooley says:

          In audio, best to purchase them from Audible (The Black is only available via Audible). Ebooks? Amazon. The books themselves? Visit my store. I do sell the Derelict audiobooks from my site as well. Bottom line? However you get them, I earn money. So choose the best way for you.

          Glad to hear you’re enjoying my work. And thank you for your patronage.

  10. Louis Green says:

    Glad I found your work. I was listening to Scott Siglers podcast feed and he was talking about The Rider (Great story by the way). I’m really enjoying your stories they are all great. Then I find out that your a Texas guy me too. Thank you for your hard work the stories are awesome. I was born in Houston at the old Herman Hospital and still have family in Spring.
