Winter of 2017 Writing Update

Hey folks,

I’ve been working hard on numerous books and trying to decide what I’m going to do next. So, I decided I would share what is going to be coming out for the finale of Winter. These works are something I’m quite proud of and will be hopefully out soon and in your hands as readers. Note: These release dates are all subjective but should be pretty accurate.

November 2017


The sequel to Agent G picks up a year after the first novel with our antihero cybernetic assassin now working for the United States government. So much better than being a private contractor, right? Wrong. Hunting down his former associates only makes things worse and he soon finds himself discovering even more dirt about his convoluted past. What is an amnesiac cyborg to do?

LUCIFER’S NEBULA (Lucifer’s Star #2)

Cassius Mass wants nothing more than to bury his past as the former best pilot of the fascist Crius Archduchy. Unfortunately, there’s nowhere far enough he can run to reshape the Commonwealth’s Watchers. Dragooned once more into their surface, he is given his most dangerous assignment yet: deliver a peace agreement to the Free Systems Alliance that has successfully driven the Spiral’s government to its knees. Unfortunately, victory isn’t enough for the organization and Cassius finds out some of his most trusted friends aren’t on his side.

December 2017

WRAITH LORD (Wraith Lord #2)

The follow up to the 2016 book WRAITH KNIGHT (which has recently been updated and revised). Wraith Lord follows Jacob Riverson, the last Wraith Knight, as he adjusts to being the Dark Lord of the Northern Wasteland. Surrounded by wealth, splendor, and two loving but devious brides–he should have known it was too good to last. The Empire is preparing a war to unite its disparate factions by annihilating all the Shadownborn races as well as their leader.

ESOTERRORISM (Red Room 1# – re-release)

This, like Wraith Knight, is a re-edit and release of the one put out by Ragnarok Publications. The adventures of Derek Hawthorne and his partner Shannon shall be shared once more by Amber Cove Press. Derek Hawthorne is the best agent working for the House, a global conspiracy which protects the existence of the supernatural from the public, but he’s about to find himself under suspicion for the greatest leak they’ve ever had. Is it a diversion for something far worse?

January 2018


The fifth Gary Karkofsky a.k.a Merciless: The Supervillain without MercyTM novel. Gary has successfully freed the world’s supervillain population and overthrown the tyrannical regime of Merciful. Unfortunately, this means everyone hates him as he’s too good for the bad guys and too bad for the good. Sick of his lack of respect, Gary decides it might be time to hang his cape up–only to be invited to a cross-dimensional fighting tournament for the fate of the Multiverse! The winner gets a wish that will allow Gary to rule the entire cosmos–or at least his solar system. Guest starring the protagonists of I was a Teenage Weredeer and Lucifer’s Star!



I’m pleased to say the benefit of writing my first two novels in the BRIGHT FALLS MYSTERIES has borne fruit with the second novel now out. 


Life is not easy for the world’s first weredeer detective. A simple hike turns into a media circus when 

Jane Doe, her best friend Emma, and a pair of monster hunters find a mass grave. Determined to find the parties responsible, Jane soon discovers a sinister cult leader has decided to make Bright Falls, Michigan the home of his corrupt religion.

As if this wasn’t complicating her life enough, Jane also has to decide whether or not she wants to begin a relationship with FBI Special Agent Alex Timmons or local crime lord Lucien Lyons. Both men are determined to get to the bottom of the crime she’s investigating but may be distracted by their own agendas–as well as their love for Jane.

Hey folks, great news! The ebook version of I WAS A TEENAGE WEREDEER is now available on Kindle!


Jane Doe is a weredeer, the least-threatening shapechanger species in the world. Blessed with the ability to turn furry at will and psychically read objects, Jane has done her best to live a normal life working as a waitress at the Deerlightful Diner. She has big dreams of escaping life in the supernatural-filled town of Bright Falls, Michigan, and her eighteenth birthday promises the beginning of her teenage dreams coming true.

Unfortunately, her birthday is ruined by the sudden murder of her best friend’s sister in an apparent occult killing. Oh, and her brother is the primary suspect. Allying with an eccentric FBI agent, the local crime lord, and a snarky werecrow, Jane has her work cut out for her in turning her big day around.

Thankfully, she’s game.

Set in the same world as Straight Outta Fangton.

STRAIGHT OUTTA FANGTON out on audiobook!

Hey folks,

I have great news and that’s the audiobook for STRAIGHT OUTTA FANGTON, my humorous vampire novel, is out as of today. I hope people will pick it up and give it a try. It’s the first book of my two series (the other being the BRIGHT FALLS MYSTERIES) set in my UNMASQUED WORLD setting. That’s a world where vampires, shapechangers, and other creatures have come out in public just in time to deal with an economically depressed and hostile public.

Peter Stone is a poor, black vampire who is wondering where his nightclub, mansion, and sports car is. Instead, he is working a minimum wage job during the night shift, as being a vampire isn’t all that impressive in a world where they’ve come out to mortals.

Exiled from the rich and powerful undead in New Detroit, he is forced to go back when someone dumps a newly-transformed vampire in the bathroom of his gas station’s store. This gets him fangs – deep in a plot of vampire hunters, supernatural revolutionaries, and a millennium-old French knight determined to wipe out the supernatural. Sometimes, it just doesn’t pay to get out of the coffin.

I hope people will give both series a try!
