Happy Fall! Settling Darkness is out now!

Hello everyone! Fall has arrived! Yeah, I know the ACTUAL start of fall happens in September, but in the deep south we get ours sometime in October. Well, that sometime looks to be this weekend. Off goes the AC, and up come the windows, letting that natural cool air in. Ahhhh!

Hey, it was a brutal summer, allow me to bask.

So yeah, got a new book out and available now. It’s called Settling Darkness and here’s a link: Settling Darkness on Amazon

I recently attended the quarterly Bayou Writers Club reading event held at the English Tea Room in Madisonville, LA. Here’s a pic of me reading from “Settling Darkness”

Always a fantastic time at the Tea Room and just hanging with my fellow Bayou Writers in general. Speaking of, we held a group Book Sale earlier in the month at the St. Tammany Parish Library in Slidell.

I’m wrapping up work on “Menace Ascending”, a short story about Ana Crucinal, the heroine of the Valkyrie Chronicles Series. Look for it in an Anthology to be released in early 2019!

Until next time, happy reading!

Cataclysm Epoch – new novel now available!

I’m pleased to announce my novel “Cataclysm Epoch” is available in Kindle and paperback on Amazon.com!

This marks the end of a five year journey that began back in 2012 when I sat down in a Barnes and Noble in my hometown, fired up my laptop and my imagination. I’d already seen the first “Hunger Games” film by then, and it really made an impact with me. I hadn’t really read dystopian sci-fi to that point, and Suzanne Collins’ story and characters really got my wheels turning on what I could do in that genre.

I’ve been a fan of the strong female characters for awhile though. From Princess Leia in Star Wars, to Sarah Connor in the Terminator series, to Ellen Ripley in the Alien series and so on. All the way to today with the wonderful Daisy Ridley in the new Star Wars trilogy (The Last Jedi debuts in less than two weeks!!!!), I like stories about tough women who can overcome, improvise, and kick some serious butt.

I hope you take a look at my latest work, and if you do please be so kind to leave a review, I’d love to know what you think! I’m polishing the sequel to “Cataclysm Epoch” now, and plan on having it out next year. Take care and I hope you’re enjoying life!

New Book out soon, and some other great news too!

Hi there, how’s your fall going so far? Has the weather cooled off enough for you yet? In the southern US, where I live, our version of cool is probably way warmer than you folks in the north are accustomed to. When the temps dip to the 50s through the low 70s, we’re all breathing a sigh of relief that fall is finally here. Of course, we get these crazy fluctuations so even though we’ll get cool temps we’ll still get those 80-degree days as well. The weather sure keeps us guessing around here.

So, about the title of this post. My next novel “Cataclysm Epoch” is ready to debut on Kindle on Friday November 17, 2017! I’m so very excited about this, and to have it happen on that date, 11/17… that happens to be five years from the date I first sat in a Barnes and Noble with my laptop and typed up a simple text file. I was inspired at the time by the Hunger Games, and I wanted to come up with my own story like that. It took some time, some life experiences, and a good amount of effort, but it came to fruition, and I am very proud to share this with you!

Also on the good news side, you may have seen me comment how I entered “Cataclysm Epoch” into the 2017 William Faulkner William Wisdom writing competition in New Orleans. Well, they’ve announced the results and the novel was selected as a semi-finalist! I’m very excited and honored by the judges’ consideration.

Until next time, enjoy your fall!!!
