If you don’t have the time to read the written page, you can listen to it instead! Heart of Gold, the first book of Clans of Shadow, is now available in audiobook form through Audible! Narrated by the great Joe Hempel, enjoy Frank Butcher’s inaugural adventure today!

Book News: Time for Some Rune Service! a.k.a. New Urban Fantasy Novel Coming!

So I’ve been working on several new projects lately and one is coming to fruition, hopefully to be released by the end of December!

A new, light-hearted urban fantasy set in Saginaw, Michigan, Rune Service follow the misadventures of four-foot tall convenience store clerk Mary Stone and her luxurious beard as she finds out that life is even stranger that hers already was when a literal Elf stumbles into the Easy-E-Mart after midnight. Within an hour, Mary finds out that magic is real, dragons are real, and that she is a Dwarf instead of a short bearded lady. Oh, also that her new Elven friend is on the run from thugs, a wererabbit bounty hunter, and a reptile man businessman. It might have been safer if she’d just stayed in the store that night!

The manuscript is over the half-way point and I’ve already been meeting with the cover artist for this one, the talented Kayla Suppapong, and there be sketches! Enjoy!

Book News: Happy Thanksgiving! Have A Book Sale!

First off, as the title suggests, I want to wish everyone out there a happy Thanksgiving, assuming you celebrate that holiday in your neck of the world. Even if you don’t, have a happy Thursday!

Second, because of said holiday, tomorrow’s Starving Review might be delayed a day or two, but it will be coming soon on the heels of Friday.

Lastly, and perhaps most importantly in general, all of my solo titles will be going on SALE starting tomorrow! Black Friday, baby!

Monday Update: Everybody Loves A Sale! a.k.a. Black Friday and Beyond!

As there is a lot of work to do in preparation for the release of The Twelfth Labor next week as well as finishing my next manuscript (expect previews soon!), and general holiday madness, today’s update will be a quickie but a goodie!

Speaking of holidays, Thanksgiving is this week which means that Black Friday, the infamous shopping extravaganza follows right after as well as Cyber Monday and Small Business Saturday and so on. I’m not one to be left out of the excitement, so I’ll be handing out sales like candy starting this Friday!

So keep an eye out for the details later this week! Until then good reading, good writing, and good luck!

Monday Update: Back to Business a.k.a. The Immediate and Near-Future of a Starving Author

The deadlines have been quashed, the burn-out has been put out, and the writing wheels have been greased. It’s time to get on getting on so let’s get back up to speed, as well as map out the near future.

  • First, I hate to announce that I won’t be at Necronomicon at the end of the month. Certain family obligations and financial missteps have made it something I just can’t do. However, I am already planning on being there next year, so fingers crossed.
  • Speaking of 2017 conventions, I hope to have a slew of news about appearances. I’ll definitely be hitting some old haunts and hopefully some new ones.
  • Book releases! As you know, I’ve been working with J. A. Cipriano to release a trilogy of urban fantasy books (Clans of Shadow) which are all now out. I also will be getting out the finale of Three Seconds to LegendThe Twelfth Labor, in Novemeber. Also also, I have a couple of really neat projects in progress. More news on that to come in the near future!
  • Book reviews are coming back! Really! This week even! Expect a fresh Starving Review on Friday.
  • Naturally, expect some more writing articles this Wednesday.
  • In other words, we’re back on track, boys and girls!

As always, until then, good reading, good writing, and good luck!

Book News: A Scouted Review! a.k.a. Jada Ryker and The Songstress Murders

Here’s a cool one!

Jada Ryker, winner of the 2016 Kindle Scout contract, threw out a review of The Songstress Murders the other day. Take a look!

General News: It’s Been Too Long! a.k.a. No Excuses But Life’s Been Crazy!

Right, so it’s been a while, friends.

Two books released, a very fun and profitable convention, and another manuscript baking in the oven as we speak. Meanwhile, I’ve been silent.

Well, all I can say is that everything has been crazy. There’s been moving (not myself, but others), cleaning, a bout or two of sickness, and a pulled shoulder. Oh, and FIFTY-FOUR HOURS ON A GREYHOUND BUS!

I can’t stress that last thing enough.

It’s enough to strain the soul!

But I’m back now. Crap is going to get done. I have two more books coming this year at the very minimum. Namely the next book of the Cults of ShadowFists of Iron, and the last book of Three Seconds to LegendThe Twelfth Labor. And don’t worry, the second Inspector Redmane MysteryPackie’s Problem, is still coming and I have a special new project in the works, a light novel actually, but we’ll save more info on that for later.

We’re still going to be light on Starving Reviews until November, when my last deadline for the year is done, but I have multiple books lined up and partly read, so they’ll come quickly then.

Oh, and finally, the Released Books and Upcoming Books are updated! Go there for links to grab my latest releases, like The Tale of the Tape and Feet of Clay.

Until next time, good reading, good writing, and good luck!
