Mr. Big Empty!

Well, things keep lining up and working out faster than I expect, so here's some more good news:

Mr. Big Empty is up for sale. And, for the first time, it's up at *3* places right out of the gate: Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords.

Here's the cover:


And here's the blurb on the back:

Vie Eliot arrives in the small town of Vehpese, Wyoming with little more than the clothes--and scars--on his back. Determined to make a new life for himself after escaping his abusive mother, he finds that living with his estranged father brings its own problems.

Then Samantha Oates, the girl with blue hair, goes missing, and Vie might be the only one who can find her. His ability to read emotions and gain insight into other people’s darkest secrets makes him the perfect investigator, with only one small problem: he wants nothing to do with his gift.

When the killer begins contacting Vie through a series of strange cards, though, Vie is forced to hone his ability, because Samantha was not the killer’s only target.

And, as Vie learns, he is not the only psychic in town.

I love this book; I'm so excited I have a chance to share it with you. It's the first book in a series of three, and I'm well underway with the second.

Hope you enjoy!

The Brittened Crown and The River Throne

Hi, guys,

More good news: thanks to a stroke of good luck, I was able to get both The Brittened Crown and The River Throne up for sale at Amazon and Smashwords. These two books complete the Witte & Co. Investigations series. I'm really excited that I get to share these with you; I love these books, and as they say, better late than never.

Here's The Brittened Crown:


And here's The River Throne:


As always, these should trickle down to other websites over the next week or two. I appreciate all of you for reading these stories, and I hope you enjoy them.

The next series I have for you is a paranormal mystery set in a small town in Wyoming. The title is Mr. Big Empty, and it should be finished in the next couple weeks. I also have a few short stories and novellas that I'm looking forward to sharing with you as well.

Warm wishes!

I'm back: The Drowning Mask and Teratozoology 101

Wow! I can't believe it's been almost two years since I posted here. First of all, I'm very sorry for the silence. Over the last couple years, I've had a lot going on in my life, and that meant I wasn't able to keep everything going. I had to make some hard choices about where and how to use my time.

On the one hand, that meant I wasn't posting to this blog and keeping you updated. On the other hand, I kept writing! So over the next few weeks, you should see some good stuff being posted.

For starters, I put the next book in Witte & Co. Investigations up for sale at Amazon and Smashwords. It should trickle down to Kobo, B&N, etc., over the next few weeks.

This book is called The Drowning Mask (edit: link), and here's the cover:


It picks up right after the end of The Weeping Lore (which ends on quite a cliffhanger!) and continues to follow Irene, Cian, Harry, Pearl, Freddy, and the others!

Another story I've posted is called Teratozoology 101. This is a novella (meaning, it's shorter than a novel but longer than a short story) that's set in a small, Midwestern town (sound familiar?). It's about an adjunct professor, his hot student who's going to cause him a lot of trouble, and monsters. Here's the cover:



This story is up at Amazon and Smashwords and should, over the next few weeks, show up at other ebook sites.

The last bit of news: I've got books three and four of Witte & Co. Investigations written. They just need to be formatted and uploaded, so I hope that will happen quickly.

I've also got a brand new series that I'm so excited to share with you. It's a paranormal mystery set in Wyoming.

All of this will be coming your way soon. Thanks for your patience and your continued support!

Feature at Luminous Expressions

I was very happy to receive an email last week from Bernetta Williams, the founder and developer of Luminous Expressions. She asked me if I'd be willing to offer the first chapter of The Dew of Flesh to be included on the site. It's not up yet, but if you're interested, you should pop on over and check out Luminous Expressions.

I think the site is a great idea--it's a way for people to be exposed to a range of new authors without risking any money. I'll let you know when Bernetta has everything posted, but I hope you give her site a chance and see if you find any new authors you'd like to try.

The Weeping Lore

Great news!

The first book in my series Witte & Co. Investigations is available for pre-order at Amazon and Smashwords. It should populate at other sites (BN.com, Kobo, etc.) by the release date (3/31/15).

Here's the cover:


And here's the description:



December 1925. St. Louis, Missouri.

Out of cash, out of luck, and soon to be out of a home, Cian Shea scours the Irish neighborhood of Kerry Patch for work. When a job falls into his hands, it seems easy enough: deliver a small, unmarked box to a rich man’s home. The job, however, proves far from simple. Framed for the murder of the local mob boss, Cian’s only chance at clearing his name is to recover the mask and identify the killer. Unfortunately for Cian, he discovers that many people want the box—and, more importantly, the secret it contains.

Being hunted by gangsters, bootleggers, and Prohibition agents is bad enough, but Cian finds his steps dogged by sorcerers and spiders and golems who wouldn’t mind pulling him apart (something he’d prefer to avoid). His search leads him to the beautiful Irene Lovell, suffragette and flapper, who is determined to find the box for herself. When a team of supernatural investigators comes to their rescue, Cian learns that there is a great deal more to the world than he had ever imagined and that the box holds an artifact that will rouse an ancient and terrible evil. Before that evil can awaken, they must recover the mask—and they must do so without succumbing to the madness of the weeping lore.



I'm really proud of this book. I think, in production terms, it's the best-looking book I've released. It's also a great deal of fun. It mixes elements of mystery and Lovecraft horror (but with a lot more action than Lovecraft ever used). Witte & Co. Investigations is a four book series, and all four books are written. They will be going up for sale over the next few weeks so that, hopefully by the end of April, you will be able to buy all four volumes.

I hope you enjoy reading this new series as much as I enjoyed writing it!

An update long in the coming . . .

Well, it's been a very long time since I posted, and I apologize for that. I have a few important updates:

First, today I wrote the last word in the last book of my newest series. The series doesn't have a title yet (I need to decide on one soon), but it is composed of four books: The Weeping Lore, The Drowning Mask, The Brittened Crown, and The River Throne. They are set in 1920s St. Louis and deal with a group of supernatural investigators who risk madness and death as they protect the city from evil. I love these books. I'm very excited for you to read them. Which brings me to--

Second, these books will be released simultaneously, so you'll be able to get all four at the same time. I don't have a release date yet. I had hoped for January, but obviously that didn't happen. I'm going to hazard a guess at late March. If things go really well, then they'll be up sooner.

And third, of course, if you'd like to receive an electronic version of the first book for free, simply join my mailing list (and feel free to let me know which books you want to know about, if you don't want to receive every update).

Warm wishes to all of you, and thanks for your patience!
