Welcome to my new website. Glad you found your way here, whether through a link in one of my books, my Facebook or Twitter pages, or a Google search for “Rabid Hamster Trainers in the Midwest.”
Okay, I’m not a rabid hamster trainer. But now that I’ve put that phrase in this post, I wonder how high I will rank in a Google search for it.
In any case, there’s more going on around here than rodent jokes and a new website. I also have a new urban fantasy novel set for release TOMORROW! (June 20th to be precise.) Branded is the first book in a fresh series about a sorcerer with a serious vampire problem. Here’s the official summary of the book:
Sorcerer Sebastian Light has long used his powerful magic to corner the market on demon hunting in Detroit. With control over the elements, he can burn through bounties almost as fast as the Ministry can issue them—much to the chagrin of the Motor City’s other hunters. But after a group of vampires taints him with their blood in an effort to turn him, collecting bounties is the least of his worries.
News of Sebastian’s vampire infection spreads through the city like Hellfire. Now he has a contract on his own head, and his rivals see an opportunity to take out their biggest competition. He can expend magical energy to keep the infection from blazing through him, but fending off constant attacks at the same time requires more power than even he can muster. Weakening daily and hunted wherever he goes, Sebastian scrambles to find a cure—before this fight for his life leaves him undead.
I had a lot of fun not only with the magical pyrotechnics and the cool characters, but also the setting. I grew up in the Detroit area. There are a lot of neat locations for an urban fantasy. It doesn’t get much more urban than the Motor City.
Right now Branded is available for only 99 cents as part of a new release special (and you can even pre-order it so you don’t have to remind yourself to swing by Amazon tomorrow). The release price won’t last long, so now would be a good time to grab your copy.
I’ve never been much of a blogger, but I’m hoping to stay in touch on here a little more regularly. If you have any questions or topics you’d like me to discuss, leave a comment or contact me via email through my contact form.
Until next time!
