This one took a bit longer to edit than expected, but the timing worked out anyway. In my ongoing urban fantasy series about resurrected people fighting evil fae across multiple timelines and realities, Nancy Chance was finally reunited with her beau Rick Strickland, only to lose him again in an attack on Headquarters.
Rick finds himself dropped into a doomed airliner headed to London. The crew has been poisoned, and nobody knows how to fly. Good thing Rick used to be a pilot in his past life!
He finds himself in a strange world, where the American Revolution failed and Texas is the dominant republic. The Nazis control most of Europe and haven’t started World War II, at least not yet.
He’s alone with no help from home and no way to get back. Worse, the fae have their sights on this alternate, and the Nazis are planning something evil for the upcoming All Hallows’ Eve Ball.

Today marks the start of the Kindle Scout campaign for Ghostsuit: An Empathic Detective Novel.
This will be the second Empathic Detective book, following the adventures of Detective Gerald Bryce. Here is the blurb for the new book:
A serial killer is loose in Central Texas. The Hangman steals victims’ DNA, disappearing without a trace. When Gerald Bryce investigates, he uncovers a far more sinister plot. Someone is intent on creating artificial life and harnessing its clairvoyant powers. Can he stop the Hangman before people he loves get hurt? And can he stop the larger plot before everyone in the city falls under a dangerous psychic spell? A ghostsuit may hold the key, by giving him an electronic set of spectral powers.
Readers who nominate the book for publication will receive a free copy from Amazon if Kindle Press publishes the book.
I’m happy to announce that my new epic fantasy, Thieves and Wizards, is available for pre-order!
Forged from the ore of a fallen star, the Forlorn Dagger absorbs all magic. Ideal for assassinating wizards, it’s been missing for centuries until it shows up in the library of a mysterious collector. Now an exceptional thief has stolen it.
A young princess endures harsh training to become the ultimate weapon of war: a battlemaiden. And a crown prince snatched from a bloody palace coup is raised in secrecy while a wizard grooms him for the day he reclaims the throne. When a rogue wizard sends an army to recover the Forlorn Dagger, they unite in an attempt to thwart evil, defeat dark magic, and save the realm.
An epic fantasy, Thieves and Wizards is the first novel in The Forlorn Dagger series.
As a special bonus, you can download Thieves and Wizards today for a special pre-order price of 99 cents. After the book goes live on Amazon Tuesday, Sept. 27, the price will increase.
I am about to embark on an ad campaign with kindlenationdaily.com. On Dec. 2, we will sponsor a free Kindle Nation Shorts campaign, during which the first five chapters of Redwood: Servant of the State will be offered free to over 161,000 subscribers on Kindle Nation Daily and BookGorilla.
“We are not revolutionaries, but our University has chosen to start a revolution. We are not soldiers, but our University has asked us to fight. We are not violent in nature, but now we will pursue whatever means are necessary to attain the freedoms we seek.
“Some day all people along the Janus String will hear about what we are doing today, and they will know that we understood some things are worth fighting for. Things like freedom, liberty, and democracy.
“May God bless us all. Mount up.”
Everybody mounted up. One by one the synthetic birds flapped their wings and left the platform, loaded with people and equipment.
Young Servant of the State Marcus Savitch lives on Redwood, a restricted outer planet in the Janus String where humans are confined to one isolated city. Extraordinarily bright, a computer hacker and spaceship pilot, Marcus holds a dark secret. Afflicted with hematophagia, a forbidden condition compelling him to feed on blood, he lives in constant fear of eradication by the State. When his secret is exposed, he escapes and heads toward the giant trees at Redwood’s center. There, despite restrictions, a team of specialists from New Texas have been conducting clandestine research for decades on the mysterious creatures living deep in the forest. When revolution erupts on the outer planets, Marcus finds himself going back to the city he escaped from, this time with a small army at his side.
