Walnut Grove Ranch – Where I grew up February 13, 2018

Posted by rhoagenda in Rho Agenda Updates.

I grew up a few miles from the tiny and historic town of Lincoln, New Mexico. The Walnut Grove Ranch house where I was raised was originally built in 1868 by Sheriff William Brady, who was killed by Billy the Kid only a couple of miles from there. Now, my family and I have made this lovely property available for VRBO rental for those who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and take a step back into the history of the Old West.  It’s surrounded by mountains, streams, and wildlife and is close to skiing, horseracing, and for all you alien lovers, Roswell… where I was born.

Super Blood Moon Awesome January 31, 2018

Posted by rhoagenda in Rho Agenda Updates.
1 comment so far

This morning, well before sunrise, I sat in my backyard with family and friends to toast the first Super Blue Blood Moon since the end of the American Civil War in 1866. To say that the experience was awesome is an understatement.

Our single moon, locked in its tidal grip with our world, so that it shows only one face to humanity, is a beautiful thing to behold. But in the grip of Earth’s shadow, it reveals itself to be something more: a blood-moon, ripped from Earth’s heart by a collision with her primordial, sister-planet.  As a result of that impact, our lovely moon grows ever more distant, year by year, century by century, millennium by millennium, until eventually it will be lost to the heavens. And should humans survive until that time, they will find themselves alone in a dark night, deprived of the goddess to whom Celtic priests and priestesses prayed.

So now, in these troubled times, I encourage you to look to our world, to our moon, and be thankful for all we have, for all we love. For it is love, and not hate, that binds us together, that brings us peace.

To all of those and their families, who sacrifice themselves to defend our freedoms to express ourselves, our love, and our art, my family sends our warmest regards. You truly are our heroes.

Best,

Richard

With the release of the final book in my Rho Agenda series, a number of fans have asked me about the chronological order of all nine novels. Here it is.
The first three books give the Jack and Janet backstory and also reveals the backstory of the alien rider in Jack’s head (Khal Teth aka Anchanchu) , the Altreian being who pulls him into the Rho Agenda.
1. Once Dead
2. Dead Wrong
3. Dead Shift
Books 4-6 introduce the two starships from warring alien civilizations, The Second Ship (Altreian) and The Rho Ship (Kasari Collective) and their continuing warring agendas as they choose their human champions.
4. The Second Ship
5. Immune
6. Wormhole
Books 7-9 follow up on Wormhole and its aftermath, as several characters take their fight off planet while others continue to battle to save humanity on Earth.
7. The Kasari Nexus
8. The Altreian Enigma
9. The Meridian Ascent.
Hope this helps.
Best,
Richard

Conclusion of The Rho Agenda Series July 27, 2017

Posted by rhoagenda in Rho Agenda Updates.

The August 8th, 2017 release of The Meridian Ascent marks the conclusion of my nine-book, bestselling Rho Agenda series. I feel a bit nostalgic about leaving these characters I have come to know so well that they feel almost like family. Once again, MacLeod Andrews has done a fabulous job with the audio book version.
