Wow. I mean, in theory, we knew this would happen, but it’s still sort of weird. But, apparently, The God Eaters is now available for sale. That’s the Powell’s link. According to Bookfinder4u, it’s available all over. Note that there’s two different ISBN numbers for this book; one starts with “978” and ends with “3”, the other omits the “978” and ends with “0”. (That is to say, the last digit is a check digit; casting out nines will explain how it works.)
We still haven’t heard back from the publisher we submitted Forge of Dawn to, and we aren’t sure why; we haven’t even gotten a rejection letter, but then, that’s Jesse’s curse. Jesse doesn’t get rejection letters, ever; people just don’t bother to write back. We don’t know why.
But now that we’ve got a book out, it’s possible that this could change; for instance, people might buy this one, giving us some basis for telling people that Jesse’s writing is saleable.

This comment is just a year late. But, I think I must get the book.
I have actually read the short story “Zachary” twice. The second time I was totally sure that I had seen the movie and that it was blatant plagiarism, that is how vivid the images were in my head. It took me until the next day to realize that I had read it before.
