Author’s Page

In this urban fantasy, the morally questionable fight the morally void. Derek Hawthorne and his twin sister Penny were raised within the secret organization known as the Red Room. This organization has kept the larger world safe from the supernatural for millennium. However, Derek is now caught up in a plot that is wrongly accusing him of treason while at the same time he hunts down the evil and powerful Wazir. Things are about to get messy.

This was a fun story. It’s got dark humor, plenty of action, and really interesting characters. I give extra points for all the Richard Matheson references. Derek is our main character and we experience the entire book through his…

The Science of Supervillainy is done!

Hey folks!

Great news, I’m pleased to say THE SCIENCE OF SUPERVILLAINY has been completed! Gary Karkofsky’s latest adventure has been sent to my publishers for editing and hopefully, we’ll be able to get a simultaneous audiobook and ebook release sometime in March of 2017.

Gary Karkofsky a.k.a Merciless: The Supervillain without MercyTM finally tracks down and faces President Omega after having had his life ruined by the time-traveling Chief of State. Unfortunately, defeating his nemesis turns out to be less of a victory than Gary hoped. Seconds after their victory, Gary and his wife are captured by Merciful: The Superhero with MercyTM. Merciful, also known as Other Gary, is our antihero’s doppelganger from a previous reality who believes he can rule the world better.

Gary and Mandy manage to escape but not before Merciful has conquered Falconcrest City and reformed it into their worst nightmare: a clean, efficient, retro-futuristic paradise. Can our heroes get their revenge or are they doomed to live in a world without villains?

This will be the fourth volume of the Supervillainy Saga but far from the last. Jeffrey Kafer will be continuing to do the audiobook narration.

Hob’s Review of The Games of Supervillainy by C.T. Phipps

This is kind of a stream of consciousness review and it’s hilarious.


The Games of Supervillainy: The Supervillainy Saga Book 2

As usual lets get the technical stuff out of the way first. The Narration was great. Kafer has the perfect voice to do Gary’s dry humor. And he does an ok job with the other voices. The speed of the reading was fine. Unfortunately  I have no complaints with the Audiobook. I say unfortunately  because it makes it a damn sight harder to write the review….. The cover could be better  I guess?

OK now lets get to the good stuff!. What can I say about this book. Hmmm It started up immediately where book one ended and in the first chapter we meet one of the best super Heroes I…

THE RULES OF SUPERVILLAINY and TO BEAT THE DEVIL for free this Thanksgiving weekend

I feel a little bad about not announcing this early Friday but from November 25th to the 27th, two of the best books from Amber Cove Publishing are going to be available for free. They’ve always been available for free on Kindle Unlimited but I’m pleased to say they’re free-free for download.


Follow Gary Karkofsky as he discovers a magic cloak which allows him to live out his dream of being a supervillain. But is he evil enough? He may end up being the villain his city needs more than the hero it deserves.

TO BEAT THE DEVIL by Michael Gibson:

The world has been overrun by demons and a new age of supernatural cyberpunk decadence has occurred. Small time criminal and cyborg Salem finds himself well above his head when an ancient human wizard recruits him for the mission of his life: taking down an archdemon.

I think people should check out both. After all, the price is right for anyone with a Kindle.

Cthulhu Armageddon’s paperback and Wraith Knight are now available!

I’m pleased to say that the paperback version of Cthulhu Armageddon is now available for purchase. Those who want to visit the raw and dangerous land of the Massachusetts Wasteland can now enjoy it in paper format.

I’m also pleased to say both the ebook and physical copy versions of Wraith Knight are now available for sale as well. If you’ve ever wondered what happens after a typical Fantasy Dark LordTM is defeated as well as how the various factions will deal with one another then Wraith Knight may well be for you.

Update for 11/15/2016

Hey folks,

It’s been a good month for books and a bad month personally. My poor father had to be checked into the hospital and is likely to suffer the loss of a leg. He’s suffering from infections which have reached his bone and the treatments just haven’t done very much for making sure it gets it out of his system. Vibes, well-wishes, prayers, and so on are appreciated.

On the cheerier side of things, my wife and I just had our 6th wedding anniversary! I’m very blessed to have had her presence in my life and hope to make that six years ten times as long.

Now onto book news.

WRAITH KNIGHT’s paperback version is technically out now, I say technically because I’ve been told there’s been a delay but only until the 18th. The ebook version is also completed but hasn’t been posted despite having my copy so hopefully that will be resolved. Also, we haven’t gotten the audiobook finished yet either.

They’re all coming, though, and it’s been a big transition from Ragnarok Publications being an indie publisher to one which is available in book stores, Growing pains and all that. Please have patience as my wife has reminded for me to as well. This is a book I can honestly say is worth it.

People who have been worried my other projects will be taking away from the SUPERVILLAINY SAGA do not have to worry as I’m about 1/3rd of the way through THE SCIENCE OF SUPERVILLAINY and am doing it for NanoWriMon. You can follow my rather faint progress on my website here. I’m shooting for a March 2017 release for the book with a simultaneous audiobook release.

I’ve already got THE TOWER OF ZHAAL (Cthulhu Armageddon 2#) submitted to Crossroad Press and they’re editing it by hand. While most of my books are set for being trilogies, I’m really of the mind the Cthulhu Armageddon series and Supervillainy Saga will be my two ongoing works.

Also, I’d like to apologize for a fact which numerous readers have pointed out that I accidentally had “clips” instead of “Magazines” for pistols. This is apparently one of the single most commonly misused things in fiction and RL for causal gun users and is akin to Dan Brown calling the immortal painter “Davinchi” instead of “Leonardo.”

Also, using squad and squadron interchangeably. Now I could do some B.S. about how Derek in Esoterrorism is just being a jackass or the Red Room has its own terminology but that’d be silly. Sorry guys. I’ll be better next time.

Have a great Thanksgiving folks.
