Book two in the Ace Grant, Demon Slayer series is now available for eBook pre-order. (Paperbacks are in the pipeline but will need proofing, etc. first.)

Blood Harvest – Paperback Proofs are here!

Always a good day when you get a book in the mail, especially when it happens to have your name on the cover... The ugly "not for resale" proof band aside, this beauty was almost ready for shelves. A minor glitch inside had thrown the pages off, starting chapter one on the left (which is … Continue reading Blood Harvest – Paperback Proofs are here!

Wait!?! I have a blog?

A little embarrassing, but I just logged into ye olde website and saw my last post was in April with the release of Crimson Son 4: Legacy. As I type, I'm also noticing WordPress has seriously updated their interface. It's like I've traveled forward in time and woken to a new reality. A started a … Continue reading Wait!?!

Bracing for Impact

Turmoil and change are often great fodder for creativity. The threshold between what was and what will be is the perfect recipe for fiction. Every story is about becoming or undoing (or both - see The Stormblade Saga...) and the personal experiences navigating change are what feed an author's prose. With my life both tucked … Continue reading Bracing for Impact

Minimalist Mindset

Last weekend we managed to squeeze in a trip in Discovery. We found a hidden gem of a state park only three hours outside the summer kiln of Dallas / Fort Worth. We lounged lakeside enjoying the thrill of doing absolutely nothing. I'd intended to file the usual Captain's Log for our trip, but lately … Continue reading Minimalist Mindset

A Transformation Long in the Making – Luke Cage Season Two
