One thing I hoped to do with the saga was subvert the normal genre conventions like with my Crimson Son Universe superhero series. Tweak those expectations traditional publishers have drilled into you. It's a risk for sure, but I wouldn't be publishing independently if I wasn't willing to take them.
This weekend, Pilgrim of the Storm, book one in my Stormblade Saga, is FREE on Amazon! Starting Saturday the 26th, you can download Pilgrim straight from Amazon to your Kindle at no cost!

Can Sidge find his place among his adopted people and spur change? Or have the fates already spoken...
A place unfinished within creation. A place between epochs which humanity has carved out of time and set aside to run on their own mortal clock.
No words, just bask in the glory. Thanks again to Jeff Brown for some amazing, amazing cover art. Release is set for June 2016. Still haven't met Sidge or explored the Attarah's Realm? Call on the mighty storm dragon Vasheru for a little Wisdom and check out Pilgrim of the Storm.

Turns out, if you want to do more than break even on a miner, you have to purchase an expensive little toaster cooled … Continue reading Digging Deep
SURPRISE! I might have mentioned this, not sure. The last two months have been a whirlwind hurricane. Pilgrim got released, the IoD bundle hit, then came All These Shiny Worlds. And currently I'm working on Forge of the Jadugar and Crimson Son 2 (double surprise!) along with another anthology invite. Phew. Oh, and that audiobook. I've been … Continue reading Crimson Son Audiobook Nears Completion
Man, Jefferson Smith over at Creativity Hacker runs a tight ship. You walk in that ring jaw set, sphincter clinched, hoping you don't look like Rhonda Rousey by the end of it all...
Only in the indie world can you go from a week between the cover reveal and a release. Sometimes this is a sign of poor planning or poor production values. Let me assure you, neither applies here. (Just look at that gorgeous cover! And Heather, my editor, wouldn't let me stuff that amazing spine … Continue reading Pilgrim of the Storm Limited Release
