Coming in 2017!


Just announced! My first short sto­ry col­lec­tion since Some­times the Angels Weep will be com­ing out in 2017 in both trade paper­back and ebook edi­tions. This is a huge deal for me and I hope for you, too. And yes, you’re read­ing the cov­er right—unlike Weep, this col­lec­tion actu­al­ly has a the­me. Spec­u­la­tive fic­tion. All of it. Sci­ence fic­tion and fan­ta­sy from cov­er to cov­er.

Speak­ing of cov­ers, what do you think? I adore it, but then, I sup­pose I’m a lit­tle biased 🙂

A lot of the­se sto­ries have been pre­vi­ous­ly pub­lished, but at the same time a lot haven’t. And the ones that were pre­vi­ous­ly released aren’t easy to find any­more. Now they will all be col­lect­ed togeth­er in one vol­ume. There are many, many sto­ries in this book and I’m sure every­one will have favorites. 

I’m pret­ty excit­ed about this, in case you can’t tell 🙂

Halloween Cover and Title Reveal

Some months I’m late (usu­al­ly I’m late), some­times I’m ear­ly (I think this is the one and only time I’ve been ear­ly). Any­way, here it is, book five of The Rose Gar­den Are­na Inci­dent, a creepy lit­tle vol­ume called STALKER FAN.

Pre­orders should be avail­able on Ama­zon in the com­ing week. Stalk­er Fan will be released Jan­u­ary 22, 2017.


First Rose Garden Book Officially Free

Cover MOSH PIT-11 500px tall

Now that has offi­cial­ly dropped the price of the first book of The Rose Gar­den Are­na Inci­dent, Mosh Pit to the price-match­ing price of com­plete­ly free, the book is now that way across all mar­kets and will stay that way for the indef­i­nite future. Those want­i­ng to pick the book up at can do so here. All oth­er ebooks sell­ers had already reduced the price weeks ago.

This change marks the final price adjust­ment that was made across the series a few weeks ago, mak­ing the entire sev­en part seri­al-thriller much more eco­nom­i­cal­ly acces­si­ble. See the post from a few weeks ago for more infor­ma­tion.

Rose Garden Book 2: Media Frenzy Release


In just four days, the sec­ond book the sev­en-part seri­al thriller, The Rose Gar­den Are­na Inci­dent will hit online book­sellers every­where. Mon­day, Octo­ber 17.

It’s called Media Fren­zy, and pre-reviews are sit­ting at a solid five stars! It’s a good book, if I do say so myself and, at nine­ty-nine cents, it’s a bar­gain. Scoop up this one and the first one, Mosh Pit now. It’s a good time to do so because, as I said pre­vi­ous­ly, Mosh Pit is now free!

Rose Garden Price Shift


After some seri­ous thought and con­sul­ta­tion with Eric, we’ve decid­ed to com­plete­ly recon­fig­ure the price plan for the entire eBook series that makes up The Rose Gar­den Are­na Inci­dent.

Effec­tive imme­di­ate­ly, or when­ev­er Ama­zon decides to price match in their case, the first book, Mosh Pit will be avail­able for free. The sec­ond and third books, Media Fren­zy and 80 Proof will be nine­ty-nine cents a pop. We think this makes far more sense from a mar­ket­ing point of view.

So now, there’s no hold­ing you back. At the very least, read Mosh Pit and see what you think. And if you do us a huge favor and review it some­where?

The fol­low­ing sites have already have Mosh Pit avail­able for free: Apple iTunes, Bar­nes & Noble Nook, Kobo, 24 Sym­bols, Ink­tera, Scribd, and Smash­words.

Hope­ful­ly, Ama­zon won’t be too far behind.

Thank you for your time. Now back to reg­u­lar pro­gram­ming.
