June 19, 2023: Burning Roads Out Now!

You may have heard murmurs of upcoming Car Wars fiction. Well, it's here! Burning Roads is the first entry in the Dead Man's Run story arc, kicking off the licensed Car Warriors: The Autoduel Chronicles series by Three Ravens Publishing. I'll let the back of the book take it from here:

Burning Roads cover
Atlanta cabbie by day, amateur autoduellist by night, Ricky Turner is living the dream.
That is, until he wakes up in a Gold Cross facility to discover his last match was more than a failure, it was a fatality.
Indebted for the cost of the clone body and reboot, Ricky heads back to the arena to do the one thing he's good at: drive offensively! But at the rate amateur matches pay out, it'll take several lifetimes to clear his debt.
Luckily the AADA has announced a new nationwide road rally, designed to challenge even the heartiest of autoduelling teams and with prizes fit for a king. Its name?
Dead Man's Run!
Can Ricky and his clandestine crew traverse the wasteland from Atlanta to Sturgis and survive against packs of cannibals, roving biker gangs, and wannabe autoduellists out to make a name for themselves?
I got an early look at this one, and I enjoyed it immensely, at least after receiving assurances that any resemblance between bit characters in the story and the current line editor of Car Wars is purely coincidental. I think you will, too. Get it on Kindle or Print on Demand from Amazon, or pick up a digital copy on Warehouse 23. And if you're going to be at Liberty Con this weekend, you'll be able to find a physical copy (and get it signed by WJR)! It'll be a great con; SJ and I will also be there, running some Car Wars, among other things.
