Serialized version of Blue Island Gods

For those of you who'd like a chance to sample my writing, or who want to read Blue Island Gods for free, I've started a Wordpress blog to serialize it. You can find it here: blueislandgods.wordpress.com.

Hope you enjoy!

Blue Island Gods Live

Yesterday, Blue Island Gods went live on Amazon.com in both print and hard copy. You can find it here.


I'm really excited about this book. It's a change for me in terms of setting (modern-day Chicago), characters (primarily Mexican-American), and plot (a set of nested stories). I'm happy with how it turned out and I'm excited for others to have a chance to read it.

As I've mentioned before, if you signed up for the mailing list, you should have received a free copy of the book. There were also several hard copies and ebook copies that were given away in various contests.

If you haven't signed up for the mailing list, you may wish to consider doing so. At this time, I'm pledging a free ebook copy of every new book to everyone on the mailing list, and I promise not to flood you with spam.

I currently have one 'proof' copy of Blue Island Gods that I'm giving away. The inside of the book is the same, but the back cover is slightly different. If you're interested, send me an email or use the contact box on the right. (Apologies, I'll only be able to mail it within the continental U.S.)

I'm also planning on serializing this book. It's going to take me a little bit to get everything set up, but once I have it all in place, I'll announce it here.

In terms of future books: The Weeping Lore, along with three companion books, is a series set in the 1920s in St. Louis. Currently, I'm planning on doing a small experiment and releasing all four books at the same time (in early 2015). My plans may changed, depending on how the series develops. I'll keep you posted here.

I believe that's all for now. I hope you enjoy Blue Island Gods, and look for a post here in the next week or so about the serialized version.
