New Year, New Books AND a New Website!


Belated Happy New Year Dear Reader,

Well, well 2022 has come and we’re already off to the races!

First of all, Welcome!

Whether you are a newcomer to all of this or a seasoned hand at leafing through my works I bid you all welcome to the new Aaron D. Schneider website. I’ve been looking forward to this day for months now, eagerly anticipating when I’d have a chance to let you all see how much has changed and definitely for the better. Feel free to poke around and see the fruit of much labor and much love. This may be my website but it is for you Dear Reader, so please explore and let us know what you think.

I’m certainly happy with it but I’d love to hear what you think, whether here or on social media.

Now credit where credit is due, much of what you see is thanks to the talent and tireless efforts of the team at Inbound Horizons. I was pleased to become acquaintances and then friends with one of their employees who showed me that there was a great deal more to be done in the digital world. Ever since I reached out to their company they have been nothing but exceptional, and this new website is just the crowning tip of the veritable iceberg of their efforts. If you or anyone you know is in need of online interface and marketing work I’d certainly give them a look.

Well, with a new author’s website we ought to say something about books.

First, the Outcast Royal Series is now available as a full boxed set on Amazon! If you haven’t already I strongly recommend you pick up the series. A true sword and sorcery trilogy from start to finish, the books follow the adventures of Axe-Wed as she makes her way through the war-wearied East from the horror haunted streets of Jehadim to the monster blighted Wyrmspine Mountains. It is a story of red-handed grief and bitter redemption so if you’re looking for blades singing in wild winds as ancient secrets refuse to stay buried you won’t want to miss this one.

Second, I just finished writing the first book of a new upcoming series, the Dwarvish Dirty Dozen. Mud Wars, the first entry in the intrepid series, takes us north of where Axe-Wed has wandered to the Ysgand Vale where armies of dwarves are locked in battle against implacable foes and a troupe of unlikely heroes find themselves caught up in events which will see the fate of the Vale and beyond changed forever. There are six books scheduled for this series so you keep your eyes peeled for news coming soon in regards to release dates.

Third and finally, you’ll want to be checking back here regularly as my ambitious plan is to try and put up an entry every other week to take advantage of the greatly improved web site. From updates about the books and my writing career to explorations of the creative process and stories from other authors, new and old, my hope is to enrich and entertain the eyes and minds of whoever happens across the page. This will hopefully coincide with the revamping of my social media presence so you can let me know what you think.

So there we go!

A New Year, a new website, new books on the way, and big new plans.

I look forward to making this journey with you.

Sincerest Regards,

Aaron D. Schneider

The Nerd Fathers Episode 39: Help Rebuild this American Dream!

So last time Chris and Aaron had more than a few things to say about the new Fallout tv series which were… less than complementary.

So in this episode they are going to explore how to fix the 1st season of Amazon Prime’s Fallout. Strap on your thinking cap and come loaded for bear, because we’re going to save the Wasteland one plot point at a time.

The Nerd Fathers Episode 37: The World’s on Fire, Okie Dokie?

From across the irradiated wastes and through hordes of mutated beasties the Nerd Fathers come bearing news of the new Fallout tv series. The show has raged across the nerddom territories earning praise and condemnation, depending on who you ask, and so it was left for the patriarchs of all nerddom to wander out into the wasteland and see what they can see. The first of two episodes concerning the shows, Chris and Aaron will be exploring the good, the bad, and the ugly of this post-apocalyptic, nuevo western, satirical extravaganza, and trying to determine if there is a good reason for it setting the world on fire.
