Rimward Stars is out now!

The fifth novel in the Castle Federation series, Rimward Stars, is now out!

A helpless ally calls for aid
A ruthless enemy strikes without mercy
The fate of empires turns on even the smallest actions

When a minor trade partner sends the Castle Federation a desperate call for aid, they have few resources to spare from their all-consuming war against the Terran Commonwealth. Unwilling to be seen failing their allies but able to spare only a tiny force, Castle sends a hero to command the task group: Captain Kyle Roberts, the Stellar Fox.

Beyond the Rimward frontier of the Federation and its allies, little is as it seems. The pirates are being armed by an outside force, and the politics of these worlds is made deadlier by their poverty. When the Coraline Imperium—the Federation’s oft-difficult ally—sends forces as well, it risks a conflict that could undermine the Alliance protecting them both.

There are deeper games afoot as local schemes play the great powers against each other. Captain Roberts is caught in the chaos as fire and blood explode across the region. There is only one certainty: these Rimward Stars must not fall.

An April Update

We are beginning the process of redesigning the website, so a lot of content on here has fallen a bit out of date. Working on that in the interim, but my priority is always the books.

Speaking of which: Rimward Stars is a bit over sixty percent done, trucking along on schedule for a target mid-May release.

Next up after that are ONSET 3: Blood of the Innocent and Terra and Imperium, both planned to be out this summer.

There’s a Secret Project (SP: V let’s call it) that should also see a release either late summer or early fall, plans are still in the process of assembly.

 

I will be moving this summer as well, but that’s already built in to the schedule for ONSET3 and DT3. I hope, anyway!

 

After Terra and Imperium is the slot for a Starship’s Mage novel, and I’ve decided to do something… well, frankly, something a bit risky. Instead of immediately beginning the UnArcana Rebellions series, my sixth planned release for 2017 is a Captain David Rice novel, tentatively entitled Interstellar Mage, kicking off a planned series of 2 or 3 books bringing Rice’s storyline up to the Legatan Secession.

(David, along with several others from along the way, will show up in UnArcana Rebellions, and I’m hoping some people want to see just what he’s been up to in the intervening five years!)

The Castle Federation series will probably wrap up this year with its sixth book, opening a “slot”, so my intent will be to finish Rice’s series and begin UnArcana Rebellions in 2018.

Next year will also see my other Secret Project (SP: E, let’s call it), though that’s a longer-term affair, and the sequel trilogy to Duchy of Terra.

 

(For those keeping track, yes, my writing time is now scheduled through the end of 2018. Mewp.)

 

Happy reading!

Judgment of Mars out now!

The fifth novel in the best-selling Starship’s Mage series, Judgment of Mars, is now out!

The current price will only last a week or so before going up!

A war fought in the shadows
A conspiracy shattered in fire
A moment of weakness…
When politics are played for blood.

The destruction of the secret archive of the Royal Order of Keepers on Mars has left Damien Montgomery, Hand of the Mage-King, with his enemies defeated, his lover dead—and his questions unanswered.

When he seeks out the remaining Keepers for answers, he discovers only violence and death in their strongholds. Someone else is hunting down the survivors to make sure they never answer Damien’s questions—or anyone else’s.

As a wave of murder sweeps Mars and the consequences of the Keepers’ conspiracy sink home, Damien is summoned before the Council of the Protectorate to answer for the deaths of two other Hands. In the political heart of the Protectorate of Mars, he finds he may be forced to choose between honoring the oaths he swore and preserving the survival of the Protectorate itself!

2016 Retrospective and 2017 Plans

Another year draws to a close. This one was my first full year as a full-time author, which remains utterly mind-boggling to me!

It’s been a busy year. To date, we’ve launched six novels and I’ve lost track of audiobook launches. We’ll hopefully be launching a seventh, ONSET: My Enemy’s Enemy, before the end of the year.

Somewhere along the way, we managed to move provinces and begin getting ourselves settled into Ontario.

It’s been a good year.  Every book except ONSET: To Serve and Protect broke Amazon’s top 500. (TSP may still, but if so I’ll be stunned. With the first book in a new genre, my expectations are more conservative :)). Alien Arcana broke Amazon’s top 100, a first for me!

I’m not going back to accounting anytime soon folks. Thank you.

 

Looking forward now, my plans for next year are even busier. 2016 will see seven books. 2017 should see eight. My goal is to put out a book in each of my four series every six months. There may be some slippage as that is an extremely demanding goal for me, but that is my target.

For now, my plan is to remain all-in with Kindle Unlimited. KU has done very well for me financially and while I’d like to be less dependent on Amazon, I like the cash flow more.

 

The next cycle of books have titles. In order of release: ONSET: My Enemy’s Enemy, Duchess of Terra, Judgment of Mars and Rimward Stars. Titles for everything after those are still in flux, though I have least working titles. And codes for reference.

 

I look forward to 2017 being even better than 2016 and to continuing to write my stories and share them with you.

It really is a dream come true and I cannot thank you all enough for letting me do this!

 

Happy reading folks,

A small town cop with an unexpected gift
A shadowy government agency on the side of justice
A call no good man could turn away

When vampires attack David White’s small town, only luck, firepower, and the intervention of an elite government task force save his life. The aftermath of the attack leaves him in the middle of the world’s biggest secret: the existence of government agencies that regulate the supernatural.

They insist that David’s “luck” is actually a supernatural gift, and he’s immediately recruited into ONSET, the most shadowy part of America’s thin blue line of police protectors.

Questioning both his gifts and the agency he now serves, David is drawn
into an escalating battle that threatens all of humanity. If he isn’t what ONSET thinks he is, the entire world may pay the price.

alien-arcana-cover-webAn alien ruin
A murdered archeologist
An ancient secret—and a conspiracy that will kill to keep it!

When a scientist is murdered after finding signs of alien magic in an archeological dig, Mage Damien Montgomery, Hand of the Mage-King of Mars, is sent to investigate both the murder and the alien runes.

His investigation is interrupted when a mysterious ship attacks the ruins with weapons only available to the Martian Navy. Despite saving the dig site, Montgomery is left with more questions than answers.

His investigations reveal questions about the origin of his magic and his nation—and lead him back to the one place that should be safe: the court of the Mage-King of Mars.
