Merchant is Coming!

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to report that as of now I am done with my novel called Merchant. It is off to my editor's hands and I am awaiting a response from him over the next several weeks. Until then I am working on my next novel which I would tell you the name if I had one at all. At this moment I'm just writing and letting the story take me where it does. It is set within the same world that Dark Choices is set in and continues five years after the rising of the dragons.


Who knows where the story will take us and I’m hoping you will become as excited as I am about the possibility of returning to the land of Asana and seeing what humanity does now that the dragons have arisen and man is no longer the top dog of the food chain.

On other notes, I would like to say that I’ve been working with a great artist named Taylor Payton. You can find his work here,

Working with him we’ve created a damn good piece of concept art for Merchant. It kind of gives a sneak peak into where you will all be heading once the new novel comes out.

Take a look and soon I will be able to give you all more information as the edits come back and I get further art back for the cover to Merchant’s first full length story.



Review of Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1: The Lightning Thief

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What can I say about this book? This is the second time I’ve read the novel and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first time.

Mr. Riordan does a fantastic job of both storytelling, creating characters that are both believable and enjoyable to be around. I’m not a big person for first person narrative but this book does such a fantastic job of creating a character with a voice that is both unique yet enjoyable.

The story is great. The characters are terrific. I would recommend this story to anyone old enough to understand the words. It’s great for children and adults alike.

There is humor. There is action. This story has everything you could want for a quick read.

Not much else for me to say. If you have seen the movies, forget them. The book is a whole lot better.

New Story Release and Novel Update

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to give a quick shout out and let everyone know the great news. Today saw the release of my newest short story, Without A Ticket. This is the first of four short stories that will be released over the next four months. They all revolve around the same theme and are prequels to an upcoming novel that I will write possibly later this summer or fall. All four stories will also be collected in an anthology to be released this fall.

Further news allows me to report on the current status of my Traveling Merchant story called "The Price of Solitude". I finished drafting the novel last week and am currently working through the first round of edits. The story should be out to beta readers as early as this coming weekend. After that process, it will go through another round of edits and then into the production stages.

For this novel, I am looking to work with a professional artist who will be doing concept art for the characters and possibly the world that this story is set in. As those come along I am looking forward to sharing the results with you and excited to get my character Merchant out in both story and visual mediums.

It's an exciting time right now, and I'm seeing many great things coming out for the second half of 2017.
