The next print workshop starts in October. The next cover workshop is in November.

The Dwarven Wars

New novel!

The Old One will not rest until he destroys the Greater Oregon Fairy Kingdom. Warrior, servant, and royal alike face death.

Old world dwarves threaten as well, plotting a genocidal invasion to steal all the magic in the new land.

Nora’s revenge against the Old One will not be stayed, even as her twin brother, Dale, makes peace with the ancient being.

Double-crosses and twisted plans abound in the last book of the Clockwork Fairy Kingdom trilogy, The Dwarven Wars. A fast-paced New Adult fantasy story that always leaves you guessing!

Available at your favorite retailers! 

The Dwarven Wars—the final novel in the Clockwork Fairy Kingdom trilogy!

Editing!

I’m thrilled to announce that I was asked to be a guest editor for the Fiction River anthology series!

The theme for my anthology?

Stolen.

Stolen cars. Stolen spaceships. Stolen hearts.

I wanted people to write me stories of theft.

And I got some great ones, too.

Go to FictionRiver.com for more information about the anthology series!

Steam. And Dragons.

From an evil genius desperate for his toast; to an ancient dragon enjoying a modern coffee shop; to amusement parks with dragon rides; and heart-lurching flights with steam-powered beasts; these tales will catapult you into an adventurous journey to the far side of your imagination. Funny, frightening, melancholy, but always memorable, they will touch your heart and leave you with a sense of wonder.

A gem for lovers of diverse fiction and wild rides.

Also be sure to pick up the other two Campcon anthologies! Tales From an Alien Campfire and Horseshoes, Hand Grenades, and Magic.

Nine Lives

Nightmares of drowning crowd Merilee’s sleep. Deep, dark, endless water.

It must mean something. She is a witch, after all.

But when three men break into her house and the spell Merilee casts to escape goes horribly wrong, she has too many other things to worry about other than drowning.

Until it’s too late…

Business for Breakfast, Volume 5: Business Planning for Professional Publishers

So. You’d like to take your publishing business to the next level, and want to create a business plan to help you get there.

But all of those stupid business books make no sense. They were not written for you.

The writers of those books mean well. But they’re talking to other business types and MBAs.

If you hate spreadsheets, and have problems understanding business books, this one (and this series!) may be just what you need.

Be sure to read the other books in this series:
Volume 1: The Beginning Professional Writer
Volume 2: The Beginning Professional Publisher
Volume 3: The Beginning Professional Storyteller
Volume 4: The Intermediate Professional Storyteller

The Immortals’ War

cutter_theimmortalswar_600x900

Tong Yi lives in Taiwan and works as a messenger for Huli Transport—a company that specializes in delivering messages and packages for non-humans. He values his oath to the company and makes heroic efforts to ensure the messages entrusted to him arrive safely and on time.

However, between the awesome motorcycle he rides who insists of “dancing” with him by fishtailing and trying to dump him every chance she gets, and the brewing war between the non-humans, “…or die trying” seems more likely with every message he delivers.

And then his brother turns up as a combatant, and possibly his enemy…

If you enjoy Chinese myths and legends woven into a modern story, you’ll love “The Immortals’ War.”

Starts with Dancing with Tong Yi, War On All Fronts, and The Sweet Shop. Continues with The Immortals’ War, Girls’ Night Out and Kiss. And Make Up.

Available from your favorite retailers.
