The Worth of Felines – Published in AHMM

TweetWhile story acceptance day is every author’s favorite (we like to get paid after all), story publication day is just as important.  One of my Magistrate Ovid stories, The Worth of Felines, is now appearing in the May/June issue of  Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine.                       […]

The Year in Review – 2015

TweetThe first thing I need to do is this: THANK YOU READERS!!! via GIPHY I really can’t say enough how amazing this year was for me and it’s all because of you.  It’s really strange to sit in a room for hours and days at a time, pounding away at a keyboard, wondering if anyone […]

Thank you Readers!

TweetA book without a reader is just a diary.  I’m happy to report I haven’t just been writing notes to myself these last few years.  The promotion of the Alexandrian Saga (Books 1-3) was a smashing success. Here are a few screenshots of the various rankings at their peaks: iTunes #45 Overall       […]

The Indie Steampunk Lit Extravaganza Deals

TweetAs you can see from the post following this one, a group of wildly talented authors, including me (humble of me, right?), have banded together to give readers a week of spectacular deals on steampunk fiction.  We’re calling it The Indie Steampunk Lit Extravaganza. For the week of April 21st to 26th, everyone’s books will […]

The Greatest Inventor Nobody Knows – Heron of Alexandria

TweetTiming is everything. Thomas Edison was born in the middle of the Industrial Revolution and was a tireless promoter.  Henry Ford utilized the technologies of the day, combined with new concepts to create mass production, to put his name on millions of cars.  George Washington Carver gained fame during the post-Reconstruction era, revolutionizing biological engineering […]

New Release — Empire of Alexandria

TweetAs history often proves, holding an empire together is much harder than taking one.  Corruption and bureaucratic bloat sets in, while everyone’s looking out for themselves.  And taking an empire that’s deep into its aristocratic ways is a whole ‘nother story as Heron and the Alexandrians soon find out. And I swear none of this […]

One Crazy Week

TweetWriting is a slow, sedentary process that has more in common with watching grass grow, or paint dry.  There might be a lot going on in my head, but the physical act stays the same and sometimes it can feel like Groundhog Day.  The publishing process has similar traits.  While people buy my books on […]

Promotion Week – Fires of Alexandria

TweetThis week is lining up to be a pretty crazy week. This afternoon I had a fantastic time doing a live interview on Cyrus Webb’s Conversations LIVE show.  I’ll admit, I was really nervous going into it, but Cyrus was a pro and his questions were interesting and thought provoking and I had a good […]

New Release — Heirs of Alexandria

TweetGood things come to those who wait.  Yes, I realize the release of book two of the Alexandrian Saga is a little later than I originally said, but hopefully the book is much better for the delay.  Not only did it receive some excellent additions in new chapters to fill out the story lines better, […]

Reviews, Updates and Links, Oh My!

TweetBetween the grueling heat wave and the torrential storms, I’ve had plenty of reasons to stay indoors this summer and keep working.  I’m past the center post and it’s hard to imagine I’ll get as much done as I did the first half, but with many deadlines looming I have no choice but to keep […]
