Coming this fall! (Shadowlord, Hank Mossberg book three and a new steampunk adventure: The Clockwork God!)

If you get the newsletter, you already know. This year I'm publishing the third and final Shadow Born novel entitled Shadowlord, which I revealed here a few weeks ago. Over the following two months, I will also be releasing the third novel in the Hank Mossberg detective series and I will be launching a new steampunk adventure series: Aboard the Great Iron Horse. 

I'll get more into details later. For now, I want to show you the artwork for Hank Mossberg 3, and The Clockwork God: 

 Coming in November!

This December!

Giveaway: Shadowlord ARCs!

It's here at last! The season is ramping up and I'm starting with two Goodreads giveaways! Check the links above. Shadowlord is slated for an October 21 release and I just received a handful of ARCs from UPS. They look pretty good, other than a slight issue with the text on the back cover and possibly some minor editing. All copies will go out signed.

For those who enter but don't win, I may have additional copies to send out, so contact me and get your name on the list!

A quick note...

I know quite a few of you have been waiting for books. I have to apologize because there was a printer error with my last shipment and it took longer than I'd hoped to get all the titles stocked. Thankfully, I have everything now, and they will be going out this week. Thanks for your patience!

R.I.P: A.C. Crispin

I don't know if I've read any of Ann Crispin's sci-fi (I suspect I may have when I was very young), but her name is familiar to us all, and her work at Writer Beware was nothing less than valiant. I was one of those who never made it into legacy publication -other than selling a few shorts- but came very close to stepping into it with some of the bad seeds in the business. Thanks to Writer Beware, I learned about vanity publishers, fee-charging agents and editors, and numerous other scams, some of which I had nearly signed onto. I'm sure thousands of other writers would say the same thing. Ann was a pioneer at standing up for writers, and in this business, that takes a helluva lot of courage. 

I can't say much more that others can't say better, so here are some links: 

May Ann rest in peace. Our hearts and prayers go out to her family, and those close to her.
