An excerpt from the CLOAK GAMES short story I’m presently writing:

Nadia kept her magical ability a secret, but I had known about it for a long time.

It was the little things. I lived with Dr. James Marney and his wife Lucy, former retainers of Lord Morvilind who could not have children of their own, and Nadia visited us often. Sometimes I saw her cry when she returned from one of her jobs from Morvilind. She knew way more about guns and bombs and locks and security systems than most people did.

Also, there was the time I walked into her room and saw her levitating small objects with magic. That was sort of a giveaway.




I am pleased to report that FROSTBORN: EXCALIBUR is now available! Links are below.

Available at Amazon USAmazon UKAmazon GermanyAmazon CanadaAmazon AustraliaBarnes & NobleKoboiBooksGoogle Play, and Smashwords.

Ridmark Arban is the Gray Knight, leading the defense of Andomhaim from the brutal Frostborn.

Yet the realm of Andomhaim is riven with civil war. The false king Tarrabus has usurped the crown in the name of the shadow of Incariel, and the loyal lords must fight the ruthless rebels.

Unless Ridmark can defeat Tarrabus and reunify Andomhaim, the Frostborn will prevail.

But Tarrabus Carhaine, deadly and wicked, will not be defeated without terrible cost…

CLOAK GAMES: TRUTH CHAIN rough draft done!

The rough draft of CLOAK GAMES: TRUTH CHAIN is done! If all goes well I will have the book out in February.

It was an interesting book. I don’t think I’ve ever written anything quite like it before.

I don’t always do a bonus short story with a CLOAK GAMES book, but I’m going to do one this time. It will be from the POV of Russell Moran,  and he and Riordan will have an unexpected adventure together. Newsletter subscribers will get a coupon code that will let them get the short story for free off Smashwords when CLOAK GAMES: TRUTH CHAIN comes out, so be sure to subscribe to my new-release newsletter now!


Thanks, Kobo readers!

According to this chart from the Kobo Writing Life blog, FROSTBORN OMNIBUS ONE was the 18th bestselling self-published book on Kobo in 2016.

If I’m reading the chart right, that means FROSTBORN OMNIBUS ONE was also the bestselling self-published science fiction and fantasy book on Kobo in 2016.

That’s definitely going in the author bio. 🙂

Thanks, Kobo readers! I’m glad so many of you enjoyed the FROSTBORN series. It’s a nice sort of thing to read right before I finish up FROSTBORN: EXCALIBUR.

GHOST EXILE series now in print

I am pleased to report that the entire GHOST EXILE series is now available in paperback format. Links and ISBN information are here at my paperback page. 

It is amusing to see how the books in the bottom row of the picture get progressively thicker the closer it gets to the end of the series. 🙂



I have not yet posted any preview snippets of FROSTBORN: EXCALIBUR. Let’s fix that:

Smiling Otto rarely smiled in truth. But at the moment, he looked amused.

“Well,” he said, his voice a gravelly rasp. “Well, well. The Gray Knight himself. Still alive?”

“So far,” said Ridmark.

“Heh,” said Otto. “Did you like being right? You said the Frostborn were coming back for years, and the lords all thought you were a madman. Now they’re here. Did anyone ever apologize?”

“Not really, no,” said Ridmark.


writing goals for 2017

Now that 2017 is upon us, it’s time to discuss my writing goals for the year!

1.) Finish the FROSTBORN series.

FROSTBORN: EXCALIBUR is almost ready, and after that there are only two more books to write. So if all goes well the FROSTBORN series will reach its epic conclusion by summer.

2.) Start the GHOST NIGHT series.

Once FROSTBORN is finished, it will be time to start GHOST NIGHT with GHOST IN THE RING. I would also like to get to the second book in the GHOST NIGHT series in 2017.

3.) Start a new epic fantasy series once FROSTBORN is done.

That will be in the second half of 2017, with the first book coming out towards the end of summer. I haven’t decided anything about the new series yet, except that it’s going to be an epic fantasy with a male warrior as the protagonist, since I already have two series (GHOSTS and CLOAK GAMES) with a female protagonist.

4.) Publish three new CLOAK GAMES books.

Right now there are five CLOAK GAMES books, but I would like to have eight out by the end of 2017. The next CLOAK GAMES book will come out in February if all goes well.

5.) Produce more print books.

37 of my books are available in print right now, and I would like to get that number even higher.

6.) Publish one new book every month.

This is kind of a stretch goal, but my other goals should help me do this one. I would like to publish one book a month in 2017…

…except for one month when I want to do three. Which is kind of the Secret Goal for 2017.

But more on that later. 🙂

Hope your new year is going well!
