Peter’s Story – Easter

He’s alive. As crazy as it sounds, it’s true. I wouldn’t have believed it possible, but I’ve seen the tomb with my own eyes. More than that, though, I’ve seen Him. It started this morning when the women came hurrying back to us, full of crazy babblings about the stone being rolled away and the[…]

GHC Cincinnati ’17

I am just back from Cincinnati where I attended the GHC Midwest for the first time. Conventions like this can be grueling when you’re manning a booth on your own, but fortunately I had an opportunity to catch-up with three old friends who stopped by to help me pass the time at my booth. To each[…]

Cover for The Colder Moon

Now that I have cover art for The Colder Moon, I wanted to share it. As with The Darker Road and The Lesser Sun, the cover was designed by Daryle Beam of Bright Boy Designs and illustrated by his brother-in-law, Michael Salter. And, like those covers, I think it looks great.

Brock Eastman KickStarter Campaign

Last year I participated in a huge, multi-author scavenger hunt organized by fellow speculative fiction writer Brock Eastman. Brock has an ongoing KickStarter campaign that wraps up in about a week, so I wanted to post some information about it. Here it is: Sages of Darkness is an exciting action packed series about a demon[…]

Family Fiction Interview

I want to thank Family Fiction for the chance to do an interview about “The Lesser Sun,” the second book in The Wandering, to correspond with its Fall release. While the book doesn’t look like it’ll be out in October as we’d hoped, I trust it won’t be delayed too much longer. In the meantime,[…]
