Really excited to share this, the cover art by Aaron Drown of Aaron Drown Design for Hellscapes, Volume II. The eBook arrives on Monday, to coincide with a big blog tour that includes a contest featuring a Kindle Fire HD8 as a grand prize. Going to be a lot of fun, I’m working up some good posts for many stops, doing interviews on others, and there will be several reviews. Definitely looking to be a busy week. But hope you all find this cover cool! I feel very strongly about this latest installment, as does my editor on this one, Scott Sandridge, and I’ll be looking forward to hearing what the readers think! 🙂
In “The Cavern”, a man finds his way into a nightmare, subterranean world that leads to an even greater, and more devastating, revelation.
A police officer takes pleasure in violently executing his duties and it appears to be open season in “The Riot” when he is part of an operation sent to crack down on a gathering of people protesting an economic summit nearby. But this is an operation that is going to take a very different kind of turn, one that opens his eyes to a new reality.
A woman finds herself stranded on a high, rocky ledge, along with many other men and women, surrounded by a frothing sea in “Above as Below”. Shadows glide beneath the surface and soon she will discover what lurks within the depths.
“Spots Do Not Change” tells the story of a man who has never had any qualms lying, cheating, or deceiving the women in his life. A reckoning day looms as he comes to understand that his actions have harmed the lives of many others, actions that in the realms of Hell take on forms of their own.
Having spun webs of intrigue and personal destruction at the heights of national politics throughout his life, a man finds webs of another sort to present grave danger when he finds himself lost within a strange wilderness in “Weaving Webs”.
Many are drawn to “The Club” in the heart of the decaying, shadow-filled city of Malizia, hoping for some entertainment and release, or even safety from the monstrous dangers lurking in the darkness. One man struggling against amnesia finds his way to the seemingly popular establishment and its confines give him momentary hope; until he discovers the nature of this night club and those who run it.
I have a couple of blog tours up for sign-ups. They take place the final week of October and the first week of November, for Hellscapes Volume 2 and Heart of a Lion, respectively.
We are looking for book bloggers and reviewers to host activities ranging from interviews, reviews and perhaps other activities for these two week-long tours. I really want to put a lot of effort into these two weeks, so if you know some book blogs, or are a book blogger yourself, please do have a look! I want to make these fun and informative visits. I really enjoy blog tours and am excited about these two back to back tours!

I currently have 3 titles available for 99 cents in eBook formats, making it easy to try my work out or start one of my series.
The three titles available are:
You can get them on Kindle, Nook, or Kobo for just 99 cents. If you never have read any of my work before, I recommend starting with Chronicles of Ave, as it is a short story collection that contains a range of types of tales set in my world of Ave (featured in the Fires of Eden Series). It will definitely give you a good introduction to the kind of writing I do, characters, creatures, and my worlds.
I’ve got a batch in and there’s a special offer for my new logo-tshirt. You can get a special combo deal including the new shirt and a signed copy of Heart of a Lion, or you can get a signed copy of Heart of a Lion by itself! T-shirt quantities are limited, so it’s first-come, first-serve until they are gone. If we do run out I will let you know an estimate on when I should be getting more in.
The price on t-shirts is just $15.95 for sizes Small to XL, with XXL and XXXL at $17.95. The special combo offering a t-shirt, signed copy of Heart of a Lion, and a Heart of a Lion Bookmark is just $28.95 ($30.95 if your t-shirt size is 2X or 3X).
If you’d like just a signed copy of the new book, you can still do that too at $14.95!
One flat shipping fee, so if you buy more shipping stays the same. Shirts are in stock and we will begin shipping them out this coming Monday.
This offer is for US residents only. I hope to be able to offer some international options soon.

It is definitely a day to celebrate, the release of the eBook and video trailer for Heart of a Lion, the first Rayden Valkyrie novel and Book One in the Dark Sun Dawn trilogy! We are gearing up for the celebration of the print version this Saturday at 5pm at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Lexington, KY, but those with eReaders can dive right into Rayden’s world today.
As far as the book itself, here are the direct links to the Kindle, Nook, and Kobo versions. The synopsis is below. The cover art was created by Bonnie Wasson and my editor on this one was Scott Sandridge, both of whom I want to give a big shout out too! 🙂
I wanted to pass along the first review published for Chronicles of Ave, Volume 1. I’m happy to report that the book received 5 Vampire Bites from Page Bites today, and the reviewer really liked the diversity in the collection of short stories (something I was particularly happy about, because I set out to have a distinct array of stories and settings in this volume).
Here’s a wonderful quote from it: ” So if you like words that flow off the page, characters that will surprise you and stories that are filled with fantasy and creatures then this set of stories is for you.”
Read the full review at:
As if the new short story collections, Chronicles of Ave, Volume 1, and Hellscapes, Volume 1, were not enough for a release week, I also had a new short story addition for the Annals of the Rising Dawn Collection! Been quite busy this past week with these releases, but wanting to make up for some lost time this summer. .
This particular story is a stand-alone, but readers familiar with the Rising Dawn Saga and the short story “Temples Rising” will discover some very interesting things within it! It also has a very eerie relevance to world events happening today, especially with regard to my take, represented in fantastical fashion, of elite interests who foment wars in foreign lands under the banners of things like “nation-building” and “regime change”.
Below is the cover and official synopsis. Really hope you enjoy it! It is just 99 cents and is now available on Kindle, Nook, and iBookstore (with Kobo at any time, just waiting for that version to go live)

available shortly on Kobo
“Desert War” tells the story of Saif, a man from the Order tasked with getting an ancient, powerful artifact out of Libu before those serving the Convergence can take it themselves. The nation of Libu is crumbling fast around him, as militant religious zealots backed by the political elite of the Convergence carry out the overthrow of the current regime. The insurgency is just one part of a much wider design, one that has been advancing over millennia, and the artifact must not fall into the wrong hands.
With the streets of the capital filled with murderous, brutal insurgents, and being hunted by powerful enemies wielding supernatural arts, Saif has to find a way to get the priceless artifact to safe harbor.
“Desert War” is a stand-alone short story that is part of the Annals of the Rising Dawn, a growing collection of tales set in the same history and world as the Rising Dawn Saga novels from Stephen Zimmer.
