Jessie's world fell apart and the only man who can help her prefers it that way.
“Drink this. It will spare your life. You may sell the golden vial if you wish. Or, if you don’t, bring it to the Kingdom of Altonia. A man of his word is a man of worth. Altonia needs men like that.”
The man lifted his head and fumbled the cap off the vial. He brought it to his lips and then hesitated. “Who are you?” he whispered.
The victor smiled. “Namitus, Knight of Altonia. May the saints take mercy on you, because if I find you returned to a life in the Shadows, I won’t.”
The only thing worse than being double crossed is when the man you just shot in the head gets back up hungry for your blood.
Hunted throughout the galaxy, it's time to stop hiding.
New people, old friends, same old evil...with a twist .
They sent their worst to do their best.
Treasure isn't the only thing buried beneath the dunes of Silver Lake
She went to Vegas on a job hunt. Now the job's hunting her.
If the survivors can only find one sign of life, one survivor, one reason to hope then perhaps humanity can rise again. If something else doesn't kill them first.
Just a quick update because it’s late already (and the Redwings are playing an intense game against Nashville). Tonight, rather late, I finally got my next Wanted book scoped out and planned. Or as planned as I do with any of these. I squirreled away the time to put a name and face to my […]Show full post
Voidhawk – Queen of Shadows, has sailed! To the editor, at least. I have cover art already so I just need that to be finished when it can dock a port near you for reading. What took so long? An incredibly busy and crazy life lately, for one. The book itself was a joy to […]Show full post
For fans of the Voidhawk series, I imagine you’re getting plenty frustrated. First I started #9 and then I took a break to work on something else (Symbols). Now I’m back on it, but it’s taking forever to write. Entirely my fault, but not due to lack of interest or desire. Just increasing demands and, […]Show full post
Voidhawk #9, Queen of Spiders, is still in progress. Steady progress, although not as fast as I’d like. It’s nearly the length of a full novel though and I’ve got a bit to get yet, so that’s great news I think. Sure, I wish I had it finished already, but only because I want to […]Show full post
Nothing like a summer cold to bless the end of summer. And bring progress to a standstill on my projects. The three day weekend was nice – until it ended, of course. Sadly, that’s when I broke my cold over Friday and Saturday. Getting back to normal now, but I spent labor day laboring (had […]Show full post
I mentioned it before, but it happened faster than I expected. Beautiful cover art, thanks to Willsin Rowe, and it’s ready to roll out. Due to my ongoing frustrations with Amazon, Symbols is available everywhere in e-book format. So what is Symbols? It’s not like my other books, for starters. Symbols is the inspiration I […]Show full post
First off, the clickbait explained – Facebook. For any content provider (or at least for us writers), Facebook has become less and less useful. Oh sure, some might argue Facebook ads bring in lots of sales for them. Good for you – I haven’t seen it. I’ve tried, believe me. I’ve spent hundreds and even […]Show full post
Today’s blog title is a bit of a play on words. While sailing the stars is a bit of an allusion that could be used for any starship or space travel, I mean it literally. As in using a solar sail, of sorts, to ply the solar winds and travel from star to star and […]Show full post
Back to writing about books! Any fellow writers out there know that book sales have crapped the bed across the board. Anybody who says they aren’t is lying – or they’d better have evidence to back it up they’re willing to present. In spite of that, a fellow fantasy author and a hell of a […]Show full post
First a warning, this post is about something I like and most people don’t – exercise. Lifting weights, in particular. If fitness isn’t your thing, no harm done. You may move along with no guilt on your conscience. For the two people still reading, let’s talk about squats. I’ve been seriously lifting weights for thirteen […]Show full post
