At long last, it’s finally finished! The full version of The Actuator Role-playing Game mod. You can use this guide to turn any RPG into a multi-genre campaign. It comes with two free short stories set in the Actuator universe as well. What’s better than that? It’s FREE!
It’s been a crazy year. I’m coming up on the 4 year anniversary of my first book release. 2016 was unique because I’ve had novels come out steadily until this year, when I had only two anthologies and a novella come out.
I’m not disappointed, though. I’m very excited by each of these new releases, and I feel like they really stretched me artistically. I have one book in editing scheduled for next year, which will finish out the Actuator series. It’s been very gratifying to see those books on the Amazon charts for months straight. So I can’t wait for the fiery finale.
My work in progress is going slow, but I feel really good about it. I’ll fill you in more as the year unfolds, but I’m sure it won’t be in print until after next year.
Thanks to all of you for making this dream real. It’s been a fantastic journey and I hope you all have a happy holiday season! 🙂

Remember, books made great GIFTS! You can gift them from Amazon. By then the sale will be over and they will think you spent tons of money on them. Spread the love!
If you aren’t up for starting a whole series, or you want something a little more in the literary sci-fi area, check out Theocracide. You can’t go wrong at this price, and it’s guaranteed to leave you thinking.
If your not looking for anything deep or even as long as a book, you can get this fantastic collection of sci-fi and steampunk. I have four stories in this anthology. Under a Brass Moon is a gigantic collection of awesome you won’t want to miss. The paperback is $23.00, but you can get it for less than a buck!
Today I guest blogged on Forever Writers. It’s all about the arbitrary classifications publishers enforce on stories (genre, audience, word count, etc.) and how the Actuator series shatters them all! Check it out!
My publisher is putting all my books on sale over the next week. So, if you missed them, now is your chance to fill our your collection, cheap! Today (Monday, December 12) for the first time EVER on sale, you can get WINDOWS INTO HELL!
With a Stoker Grandmaster award winner, an international #1 bestseller, and a line-up of many incredible authors, this is one of the best existential works you’ll read.
And if you’re not in the mood for deep thoughts, you can get something lighter. Who doesn’t like ghost stories, and nightmares, and monsters? Or better yet, a romance between a ghost and a monster? There’s all that and more.
I spent ten years world-building this story. Ten years of my life and you can get it for less than a buck. Try EXACTING ESSENCE!
It’s amazing how things evolve over time. When the first Actuator book came out, this is what it looked like. I’ve always loved it, and it gets plenty of attention from people at signings. However, editing shortcomings required us to put out a new version of it within the first year. We added a fairy (Xenwyn) to distinguish it from the first edition.
This cover served us well for a long time, but eventually my publisher wanted to rebrand the entire series. What they came up with next AMAZED me!
In a more classic sci-fi vein, and geared to better attract the gaming crowd as a LitRPG story, this new cover just blows me away. Here for the first time.
Isn’t that stunning?!!! Here are the other two books in the series so far and their new covers.
And book 2.
All these beauties should be up on Amazon this Monday… or soon thereafter. 🙂
