Writer stuff:

Autumn 2021

Thank you to those who write asking about the rest of The Rise of the Alliance arc. The last three books will come out in December and early next year. In the meantime you can read a chapter a day on my Patreon [link below] for three bucks a month.

Working on a completely new project, as a pandemic sanity-saver experiment: THE PHOENIX FEATHER is also running on Patreon. Details and links on the bibliography page.Here is the Patreon link for readers who would like to see current projects now.

There is an interview about this project that came out mid-September from Fiction Fans Podcast.


Marketing stuff:

Being one of the many authors who have no skill (or budget) for marketing, I am grateful for word of mouth from readers. Here is a review that pretty much made my year.

I’m trying to learn how to do newsletters. If you’re interested in receiving one when I have something coming out, sign up here to be notified. I promise I will only send one out when I have actual news, unless you sign up for the version that talks about various of my published books. (Those letters go out every six weeks or so, not a bombardment.)

Why I link my books here whenever I can

BVC (which offers its e-books in mobi and epub formats) was formed by a bunch of writers as a cooperative publishing effort. Books offered cross all genres, from science fiction to romance to historical to mainstream. We function as editors, copyeditors, formatters, cover artists, and site maintainers. We offer both reprints (currently in e-form, but we’re looking at print options) and new books. 95% of the proceeds go to the authors! That means that the author actually earns most of the money you pay, instead of publishers and big venues like Amazon, B&N, and iTunes.

Here is our latest offering, and this is my bookshelf.
