From the back cover;

The year is 2095. Magic has been tamed as another form of technology, and the practice of magic is now a rigorous discipline. Brother and sister Tatsuya and Miyuki Shiba are just about to start their first year at the renowned First Magic High School of Japan. But the school’s ironclad rules mean that the brilliant Miyuki enters the prestigious Course 1, while her older brother, Tatsuya, is relegated to Course 2–and that’s just the beginning of their troubles!

Revelation Game – New Cover & Totally Free

In September of 2013 I released a short novella (about 15,000 words) called Revelation Game.

It was one of those stories that snuck up on me and refused to go away until it was written.

Since then, it’s been available exclusively on Amazon.

Until Today!

As of today, Revelation Game is 100% free for all time. That’s right, no sale, no time limit, it’s FREE!

To be honest, I decided to do this because a) it’s not selling and b) I like it and want it in the hands of more readers.

So you officially have nothing to lose. You can download the Epub directly from my site, or head over to Smashwords and grab whatever format you want.

And to celebrate the change, Revelation Game is sporting a swanky new cover. Hope you all check it out and enjoy!


Monthly Update on the Progress of The Bleeding Worlds Book 3, Resonance

When I worked on Suture, I remained pretty quiet on the blog. So much so, a discussion topic popped up on Amazon asking about the release date. I thought, since I seem to be updating here a little more regularly, that I’d do at least a monthly post on the progress of The Bleeding Worlds Book Three, Resonance.

So far, my word count sits around 25,000 words. That’s approximately a third of Harbinger’s total word count. Not too shabby, right?


I love what I’ve written. Well, maybe love is too strong a word. I’m pleased with what I’ve written. This is definitely on the right track.

So why the Ugh?

I have a third of the words of Harbinger, but not a third of the story. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve only scratched the first ten percent.

This book will be the longest I’ve written.

Which I suppose is a good thing. Go out on a high note and all that, right?

So there’s quite a lot of writing left to do. I’ve set a pace for myself I’ve been meeting or surpassing every day, so steady progress is being made.

I refuse to rush this. I won’t let the end of my series fall flat on its face. I owe it, and you, more than that.

So there’s my update. If there’s any major breakthroughs in the next couple of weeks, I’ll let you know. Otherwise, I’ll see you in June 🙂
