This week, you can grab the e-book edition of Soul Sister for the outrageously fantastic price of $0.99, on any kindle reading device. This is the story about a damaged girl and her ghosts. Angels and demons, love and hate, Heaven and Hell, life and death, hope and despair.
Yes, I know, we’re well into 2015. Through the winter (and the first part of the year, I didn’t have that much time to devote to my writing. Sooo… here we are, mid-April, and I’m just getting around to what is going on for the rest of the year.
Last year I had set a goal of writing 1 million words. I managed about a quarter of that. Though I’d like to think I could hit it this year, I don’t think a million words is what I want to focus on this time around.
Instead, I’m going for 52 ebook releases in 52 weeks. Some of you might’ve seen a similar goal inspired by the writer Dean Wesley Smith in one of his blog posts from a few years back, and yes, I admit that it’s my influence.
But, I hear you say, it’s April! 15 weeks have already gone by, and you’ve only released 4 ebooks this year! Well, I just so happen to have 15 books on Amazon right now! That’s still 52 books by the time this year ends. But still, that’s not exactly the goal. 52 books in 52 weeks. I’ll take this goal into April 2016 to see it through.
So… back to what I’m shooting for. At least one ebook a week. This will include short stories, novelettes, novellas, serials, bundles, and full length novels. I’m going to try for at least one release per month to be a novel of 40k words or more, but that’s a secondary goal.
This week you’ll see the release of the conclusion to Spilling Blood Season II, and the complete Season in a single bundle (for those of you who have been waiting). In the following weeks, Apocalypse Witch 3 and the bundle of the trilogy, and Soul Sister (which is coming along quickly now), and finally on to Hungry Gods 3. I have several other secret projects I’m not ready to announce yet, but the above are what I’m already committed to.
Finally, if I can stay on track, I’ll go back to fairly regular Monday updates to keep myself honest.
The Spilling Blood Vampire Serial continues…
The price of immortality is high.
After the events in Episode 6, Emily Steel is at war with herself. What good is eternity if she must destroy everyone she loves? Worse… what if it’s not love?
To Wolf, the girl Emily is spiraling downward. She may be pack, but the price of her friendship has a high cost. Her existence may well jeopardize them both.
Maggie learns that there are fates worse than death, and even those fates can always get worse.
While the hunter’s plans become realized, other forces begin to stir. He seeks to draw out the Dragon, a decision none of them will be ready for.
Emily Steele is at war with her existence. The more she tries to be human, the more a monster she becomes. She swore she would never kill to live, but now she can’t stop herself. If she can’t control her thirst, how can she stop from killing those she loves?
Maggie never had a problem with being a monster, but now she has become the first target of the vampire hunter and her places to hide are rapidly dwindling.
Wolf has run from his past ever since his death. Now his past is catching up.
Spilling Blood is a serial, with each part like a television episode, and the episodes collected in seasons. It is intended for mature readers.
Season II will include Episode 5 through Episode 10.
Last year vampires kidnapped Emily Steele from her life, taking her away from school and boyfriend, and plunging her into a nightmare of blood and demonic lust.
This year, the nightmare returns, but Emily is no longer a victim.
Spilling Blood, Season II plunges the reader back into the world of bloodthirsty vampires. Emily’s supernatural abilities give her a sense of confidence she’s never known before, but it can’t restore her to her family. With more enemies than allies among the dead, she will have to pull upon every ounce of strength she possesses not avoid death a second time.
And there are other things in the night. New horrors have arrived that hunt the dead… and eat them.
Spilling Blood Season II returns as a serial, picking up at Episode 5. Watch for it’s release by Monday, August 25th. There will be a total of 6 episodes in the new season, making it 30% longer than Season I.

To make things worse, what little time she has left is not her own. Twelve angry apparitions of murdered women seek revenge, something they can only get through Matilda.

Everything changes when her airship is attacked by pirates. With a hasty lie told to protect another girl, Matilda finds herself abducted and thrust into a world beyond the safety of her civilized world.

Apocalypse Witch is a serialized steampunk sci-fi.
The wait is finally over. Death’s Reach, the sequel to last year’s Death Storm in the Hungry Gods series, is available on exclusively at Amazon in ebook format. Paperback will follow shortly.
The zombie apocalypse continues as the survivors search for a place of refuge. Things have gone from bad to worse, with even the gods succumbing to the curse.
Taegar never saw himself as a hero, and certainly not a leader. His allies are a mixed bunch, composed of a little girl and her zombie brother, a blind and crippled elf, a rogue, and a young woman that can’t return his affections. Though their differences threaten to tear the group apart, only by staying together can they survive.
Their goal is to reach Levia, the city of wizards, hoping that such a place would have withstood the undead horde. Between them and their destination is a dying world full of new horrors and nightmares as the curse expands beyond humans. And what awaits them in Levia? Has it truly survived the madness of the zombie apocalypse?
Meanwhile, the goddess, Death, embarks on her own journey to reach the underworld and fulfill her destiny. Her companion, a man thought lost to primordial spirits, carries within him a curse all his own.
Death’s Reach is book 2 in the Hungry Gods series, and the sequel to Death Storm, a Dark Fantasy Zombie Apocalypse that brings the nightmare of Armageddon to a high fantasy world.
One year ago from yesterday, I released my first book, Broken Things. Since then, I’ve published two others, with my fourth book coming out within a few days.
Broken Things was the novel I wanted to write, a story that I felt was inspired. It is the novel I wanted to launch my career with. I’m still proud of it, even though my writing has continued to grow since then. It’s still my favorite of all my stories. It’s taken me across Southern Idaho to book signings in a variety of venues from an aquarium and to coffee bars and bookstores. It also continues to sell the best of my three titles, so far.
Even though I am frequently asked if this book will ever have a sequel, I really don’t want to lessen the book by giving it a series. There’s some books (and movies) that lose everything they stand for because of further development, and this I will always believe is one of them. It has reached rank #1,138 in paid bestsellers on Amazon, and broken into the top #100 from a promo free run.
In this second year, I have another sci-fi novel coming out, probably a month or two away. It will be for those of you who enjoyed my first Sci-fi, with a story-line that will hopefully make you think and feel. More on that at a later date.
I will also be writing my other two genre fiction series, being Hungry Gods and Spilling Blood. I’ve promised my wife her advanced copy of Death’s Reach will be in her hands over the next couple of days, which means that you will be able to read it within a week.
In Death’s Reach, the zombie apocalypse takes a number of horrifying new turns as zombie gods begin to extend their influence over the world. There are few sanctuaries left, and the survivors from book 1 find their resolve tested as the world descends into chaos.
If you liked Death Storm, you’ll love Death’s Reach.
