?perhaps a bit sooner?! I?m on vacation the week before July 1st, also known as the last week of June. ;D I?ve often bought from your website so I?m good with that! Obviously I?m hooked on the ?Galaxy Unknown? series and I?m just as addicted to the ?Border Patrol? series.

Very good fun stories!  Don?t ever stop!

AGU-12 is a touch over 3/4 written (first draft). Now I'm at the hard part, keeping the excitement from fading while also building it to a crescendo. Then there is the rewrite and the editing process to complete.

Right now, I'm estimating that the book will be released on July 1st (perhaps a tiny bit sooner on my own website because I have greater control on that.)

I have not seen that review before.  I can see where the reviewer would say that but I DO NOT agree with it.  Are the two series similar in many respects?  Yes.  But you can say that about any two series in the same genre.  Say as another poster did Honorverse series and Ida verse by Jean Johnson.  Or the Sons of Destiny series by Jean Johnson and the Carpieathan (sorry don't have a book from that series handy to get the correct spelling) series by Christine Feehan.  The first book in the AGU series yes I agree did have a bunchy of info dumps.  But any book that is clearly started as book 1 of X number tend to contain a bunch of info dumps.  I honestly don't think that reviewer read more than books 1 and 2 maybe book 3 but I doubt it.

When I read a book, I am looking for a number of elements.  Some of these are:  great characters, specifically, seemingly ordinary people placed in extraordinary situations and rising to the occasion, and really great stories with a broad range of people and circumstances.  The similarities between David Weber and your product are not so great that a charge of plagiarism is warranted. 

While it's true that both primary female protagonists are strong women in military service, I am reading similar stories by other authors like Jean Johnson and Mike Shepard that have similar characters.   Indeed, I find stories with strong female characters in positions that we males see as non-traditional and somewhat against type to be very much more interesting and engaging than ones with male characters who perform the same acts.  Nobody I've heard of is charging them similarly so I think the person complaining has a bug up their 6 and needs to reconsider their motives and objectives.    When I pay the few dollars I do for a story, I'm not expecting works on par with Plato, Aristotle or Shakespeare....   I'm looking for something that takes my mind off the world we live in and lets me go to someplace else in my own mind, even if only for a few hours.  To me, that's a gift.
that's a great idea
