Valentine’s Day Special – Free Novel

9 Feb

valentine's day special

Did you know that Valentine’s Day is coming? It is. Before that, I want to apologise. It has been a while since my last post. Real life is simply getting in the way and I am trying to make a significant career change. None of that is important right now.

At the moment I want to let everyone know that in a sudden act of generosity I have decided to offer Leaf and Branch for FREE just in time for Valentine’s Day. The novel will be free from February 10-14th, inclusive. That’s a pretty sweet deal! It’s like me giving you $5 USD!

leaf and branch 3d coverWhy? Because books are wonderful things and fill me full of warm fuzzy goodness. And I’m a sucker for romance. I want everyone to have that feeling for a little while. So get a hold of Leaf and Branch while it’s free and send it to your significant other! I can’t promise they’ll love you more, but they sure will be appreciative!

Since I am here writing things I should update where I am with the world. For those that do not know, the story on me in the Royal Canadian Navy’s Crowsnest was picked up by Vanguard magazine; which is the oldest military magazine in Canada. I have also now been approached by Military Family Magazine for an Avid Reader article that I hope to see published soon. I’m pretty pleased with the sudden interest. I love to write and I love to have people read my novels. Hopefully, this helps get the word out.

Stoc is progressing albeit very slowly. I have a good friend providing excellent Alpha feedback. Not bad feedback for an American, actually. I’m going to have to keep this engineer physicist around… I still plan to publish this summer.

As always, please leave reviews on my novels.

Greeting readers.


I have decided to release my first two novels in the New Druids series as one combined volume. I am calling it “Leaf and Branch”. I will have it out for purchase within the week. Until then please have a look at my cover design and let me know what you think. I have deviated from my normal covers in order to make it stand out a little more.

Too Much Material!

Stoc: A New Druids Novel, Volume Three

Stoc: A New Druids Novel, Volume Three

By the Word! I have Too Much Material! My wordsmithing skills are getting wordier. The more I write the third novel in the New Druids series the more I have to say. I outlined Stoc months ago and now that I am finally putting pen-to-paper [a colloquialism] I am rapidly discovering that the story can’t be told in 400 pages. I could – but I would be removing so much. You might remember that this happened during my first novel. I had an epiphany and realised I was well into my second novel.

Quite possibly I simply suck at creating outlines…

In any event, decisions will need to be made at some point. I’ll know more once I complete Part 1: Parry. This is not a bad thing. It just means that the final closure on the main story arc will be delayed somewhat.

The good news is that I have written over 25,000 words. I’m in the groove and loving it. I love this story and the characters. I hear their voices in my head when I write their dialogue. They surprise me often. Words come out of their mouths that I did not expect.

Yup. Crazy. I’ll update more in time.

Since I am here, I want to welcome all the fine folks over at the Science Fiction, Fantasy and Other Genres Facebook public page. Great group people!
