For those of you in the Portland area, I’ll be signing books at Powell’s at Cedar Crossing at 3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. Beaverton, OR 97005 with a bunch of other authors on Sunday afternoon 11/9/14 beginning at 4:00 PM.
Here’s a full list of the authors attending:

See you there!
Since I’ve decided to redesign my website (an ongoing project . . . LOL), I thought I should update everyone on what you’ll be seeing over the course of the next year.
- A short story collection
- Book 6 of The Maker’s Song–Pale Blue Flames
- Book 3 of Hoodoo–Black Moon Mojo
- Sons of Darkness Book 1
- Thinning the Herd–a humorous UF story being released summer 2015 by Pocket
So keep watching! I’ll soon have count-down counters on the site and (hopefully) pre-order links, cover art, and more!
I received a pleasant surprise this morning when I learned that A RUSH OF WINGS is a Kindle Daily Deal on Amazon.com today. Last fall, this title went all the way to #1 in paranormal fantasy when Pocket and Amazon ran it as a Kindle Daily Deal. Here’s hoping history repeats itself.
After HOURS of work, my good buddy Sean, his genius friend Angie, and I FINALLY fixed my website. I couldn’t log in. No one could log in. Sure, you could visit the site, check out the pages and links, even post a comment, or send me an email–but no one could log in or edit their profile, and I couldn’t access my dashboard at all. Gah!!!
You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page
I never want to see those words again. LOL. I now know a lot more about how to fix it, if I do.
On to the news!
Pocket will not be releasing book 6 of The Maker’s Song. Instead, they will release my humorous UF novel THINNING THE HERD as an e-book original later this year. Book 6 will be released through Lucky Bat Books either in December or January, to be followed by book 3 of Hoodoo and book 1 of Sons of Darkness (featuring Sundown and Sam Taliesin). I will also be releasing a short story collection this summer through Lucky Bat Books.
This will keep me very busy. LOL. Once I have firm dates for everything I will let everyone know.
So I’m off in an excited new direction with one foot in both worlds–Indie and Traditional. I’m very excited by this change. Working with Pocket has been wonderful, don’t get me wrong, and I plan to continue to work with them in the future. When it was decided that they wouldn’t continue with my UF series, I decided to continue them myself with the help of Lucky Bat Books. Neither The Maker’s Song or Hoodoo are finished yet. I have plenty of stories yet to tell. And thanks to Lucky Bat Books, I can do just that.
I’m also looking at getting all of my books in audio, as well.
Of course, the books will no longer be mass market paperback sized, but trade paperback sized and I have a feeling I’ll need to keep each book shorter in order to keep the cost down. I’ll find out as we move along in this new (for me) process. I want to thank all of you for sticking with me!! Your support means everything to me!
And now, just because this picture makes me happy– Sam from Supernatural.
I was pretty damned excited to see A RUSH OF WINGS as a Kindle Daily Deal for $1.99! The deal runs through midnight tonight PST. This is the perfect time to gift a copy to a friend or relative who hasn’t had a chance to start the series yet or to just add the e-book version to your paper copy.
I had just returned from a trip to Boise to attend the wake of a very dear friend, when I found out that Night Owl Reviews had chosen On Midnight Wings as a Top Pick. I am so thrilled! My sincere thanks to Night Owl Reviews and reviewer ELF. You can read the first part of the review here.
On Midnight Wings
Book Five of The Maker’s Song
This complex and alluring urban fantasy is filled with an almost overwhelming cast of characters who are disturbing yet mesmerizing. There is a sometimes dismaying amount of death and destruction yet one cannot help but feel empathy for the dichotomy personified in the main character, Dante. The adamantine bond which has been formed between him and his mortal lover Heather is delicious to observe yet its existence can still be threatened and this only adds to the escalating tension that is a perpetual aspect of this enthralling series. READ THE REST.
