A Quick Addendum/Erratum

via GIPHY

So I just found out that there’s a distribution problem with the e-book version of Banished Sons of Poseidon. That version is available at the publisher Bold Strokes Books, but unfortunately, it will not be for sale at most retailers until October 19th.

Oops! I spoke a little too soon.

Paperbacks are indeed available everywhere. My apologies for the confusion.

Release Day! Banished Sons of Poseidon!!

via GIPHY

October 14th, 2015: Today is the day! Banished Sons of Poseidon, the follow up to The Seventh Pleiade, hits stores, spreading some high fantasy, Atlantean queerness around the world.

Early reviews have been a bit slow to come in, but I was thrilled that BSoP was picked out by All Our Worlds Diverse Fantasy Fiction.

” ★★★★1/2. Monsters, magic and vibrant characters. A lot of fun.”

You can read the full review here. 

Here’s the cover and the story blurb:

BanishedSonsofPoseidon2

After escaping from a flood that buried the aboveground in seawater, a fractured group of boys contend with the way ahead and their trust of an underground race of men who gives them shelter. For sixteen-year-old Dam, it’s a strange, new second chance. There are wonders in the underworld and a foreign warrior Hanhau who is eager for friendship despite Dam’s dishonorable past.

But a rift between his countrymen threatens to send their settlement into chaos. Peace between the evacuees and Hanhau’s tribe depends on sharing a precious relic that glows with arcane energy. When danger emerges from the shadowed backcountry, Dam must undertake a desperate mission. It’s the only hope for the Atlanteans to make it home to the surface. It’s the only way to save Hanhau and his people.

Buy it now at Amazon, Barnes and Noble or through Indiebound if you prefer.

Notes from the Underground

A Wordle or “word cloud” created from Dostoyevsky’s Notes from the Underground, retrieved from acetinc.com

I thought I’d pop my head out of the social media manhole where I’ve been hiding these past few weeks. I’ve never been a wiz at keeping up a dynamic presence here and over at my other haunts like Facebook, Twitter and Goodreads. The month of August was particularly sketchy for me since I had deadlines for two projects.

That does make for some exciting news…

via GIPHY

I finished the last round of proofreading, and Banished Sons of Poseidon is in its final stages of production. Advance Review Copies (ARCs) should be available real soon. The book, a sequel to The Seventh Pleiade, releases on October 13, 2015.

And, I completed the manuscript for a farther upcoming release titled The City of Seven Gods. It’s another ancient world-themed novel with less magic and more Game of Thrones-ish drama, not for the kids table at Thanksgiving dinner. The book was picked up by Bold Strokes, and it’s on the production schedule for an April 2016 release.

Other than that, I’ve snuck in some tennis watching (Go Federer, winning a master’s event in Cincinnati!), and beach-going, and weekend barbecues. Of the latter, I have the mosquito bites to prove it. I’m writing this post while scratching away at my ankles. Grrr…

Oh, I also discovered Terry Pratchett! Well, just his books I’m afraid, may he RIP. I sped through Dodger this summer and was blown away. That’s the way books should be written IMHO: ferociously clever, utterly transporting, satisfyingly tragic and triumphant (and with far less adverbs).

So what did you do this summer?

Some exciting news for 2015

Post-holiday greetings, Happy New Year and a belated MLK Day salute.

Editing has gotten the better of me for the past month or so. I’ve been holed up in my home office, working (fairly) assiduously to get my novel Poseidon and Cleito into shape. Besides a little bit of Facebook-ing and GoodRead-ing, social media has been off the diet.

But I am stepping out of my dark, secluded writing lair to announce that the follow up to The Seventh Pleiade is working its way through production and on the schedule to be released by Bold Strokes Books on October 13th of this year!

And here’s the cover art and the back cover blurb!!

BanishedSonsOfPoseidon_5x8After escaping from a flood that buried the above ground in seawater, a fractured group of boys from Atlantis squabble over the way ahead and their trust of an underground race of men who give them shelter. For sixteen-year-old Dam, whose world was toppling before the tragedy, it’s a strange, new second chance. There are wonders in the underworld and a foreign warrior Hanhau who is eager for friendship despite Dam’s dishonorable past.

But a rift among his countrymen threatens to send their settlement into chaos. Peace between the evacuees and Hanhau’s tribe depends on the sharing of a precious relic that glows with arcane energy.

The Werecat trilogy is out in paperback!

WerecatTrilogyFinalRETAILCover700x1066pRGB96dpiJust released today: all three installments of the Werecat saga in one fierce, little paperback.

That’s The Rearing, The Glaring and The Fugitive all together for the first time. Here’s a blurb about the story.

Twenty-two-year-old Jacks is on a mission to drown his past in alcohol when he meets the handsome drifter Benoit on a lost weekend in Montréal. It’s lust and possibly something more. Jacks never suspects that a drunken hook-up will plunge him into the hidden, violent world of feline shifters.

Benoit traps him in an arcane ritual to be joined as mates, from which Jacks emerges with fantastical abilities and a connection to Native traditions that were buried by his family. But his new existence pits his human instincts against his wild animal nature. When Jacks meets the young medical student Farzan, who wants to be with Jacks no matter what or who he is, Benoit’s feline jealousy rages like an inferno.

Jacks must figure out how to survive with his dual nature and a boyfriend who will kill any threat to their relationship. When a secret society called The Glaring shows up with a plan to exterminate humankind, Jacks will have to work quickly to gain command of Benoit’s magic before the world shatters into a war of man against beast.

The Werecat saga has been about two years in the making. I’m pleased as heck to see the full story beautifully bound in a print book. Pick it up at Amazon or your favorite retailer.
