Three Casting Ideas to Save Indiana Jones 5

While many of my generation subscribed to the fandom religion of Star Wars, my great love went for Indiana Jones. Raiders of the Lost Ark was the first movie that I can remember seeing in theaters. Being three years old, I wasn’t paying too much attention to what would become my favorite movie series. […]

Fourteen Facts About Hounacier

One year ago today Hounacier hit the digital shelves.  In honor of its birthday, and keeping with the tradition that I started with Dämoren’s first birthday, I wanted to share a few fun facts about it.
**Spoilers Below**
1:  Originally, Hounacier wasn’t intended to be the second novel. I’d planned to write Ibenus, followed by Hounacier […]

Eleven Facts About Mountain of Daggers

Today marks one year since Mountain of Daggers’ release.

I’ve written before about the journey it took for it to finally hit print, as well as the various inspirations. But in honor of Black Raven’s birthday, I wanted to share a few bits about my roguish hero. And because there are eleven stories, I figure […]

Endings: Setups Versus Cliffhangers

In the past year I’ve had multiple unfortunate experiences of reading a good book only to have it end in a Cliffhanger.  For me, it yanks the enjoyment of a wonderful story out from under my feet and leaves me feeling rather cheated. I hate Cliffhangers.

I’ve read reviews and chatted on Reddit and learned that while I’m […]

Ibenus Cover Reveal and a New Look

On December 27th, 2013, Joe Martin with Ragnarok Publications sent me a message saying, “Something for you to look at.” It accompanied my very first glimpse of Dämoren’s cover. It was still a bit rough. I hadn’t secured my blurb from Elizabeth Bear yet, the gun had a couple tweaks left to do, but […]

2015 in Review

This year has been incredible. In the 10 years since my first sale, 2015 was the first time I openly referred to myself as an author. Before that, it felt sort of weird, like I was some wanna-be pretending I was something that I wasn’t.  Even after Dämoren released in 2014, I was apprehensive about […]

Sea of Quills is on Audible

 Audiobook lovers can now find Sea of Quills on Audible, narrated by R.C. Bray.  While I haven’t finished my initial listen (I’m halfway through City Beneath the Kaisers right now), I can safely say that R.C. has done another fantastic job bringing Ahren to life.  It’s been ten years since I penned my first Black […]

The Serpent’s Army is Out

The first of my Valducan Archive Adventures is out.  Set twenty years before Dämoren, The Serpent’s Army follows knights Clay Mercer and Max Schmidt as they hunt a lamia outside of Dallas Texas. I thought it would be fun to show them when they were young, capable hunters, and wanted to try a “buddy cop” […]
