A Change of Direction

Hello, everyone. It's been a while since the last update and . . . there have been a few changes to my original plan. The sequel to Son of Syria, entitled Live by the Sword, was originally intended to be released this summer. That, unfortunately, has been delayed. But, don't worry, I will be releasing a short story by the Fall about Kyle and his continuing adventures.

However, I am excited to announce a brand-new science fiction property that I have been developing. The first book, entitled The Search for Newton's Moon, will be available this summer. It follows a ragtag group of rebels who may have found the greatest treasure in human history, but first they have to contend with outlaws, pirates, the secret police, and the most powerful navy in the galaxy. For anyone who loved Firefly or Mass Effect, you'll find something to love in this new story.

I'm thrilled to introduce this new project to you all. Rest assured, Kyle's story is not over, but until the release of Live by the Sword I hope you will all join me on this new journey. Thank you so much for your continued support. If you haven't joined the mailing list yet, this is the perfect time to do so. Short stories, sample chapters, and more are coming for members of the site, but you have to sign up to access them.
