Here is the cover art for the fourth book in the Almek Manning Series, Asgard!
I don’t have an expected publication date yet, and I’m not going to give one until I actually know the month the book will get published. I’ll just say that I am hard at work getting the Asgard through the editing process.

Report for Training as a UME Marine

Almek Manning now captains the flagship of the Four Species Alliance. Although he has great officers and crew, the Sky Marshal refuses to let Almek get comfortable and is planning to reassign all of his officers to other commands.

Meanwhile, Almek is worried that no more time can be lost in convincing the Sky Marshal and Jack Dalton to help him rescue his friends who are still trapped in the London Proper Detention Facility, deep in the heart of UME territory.

However, there is still a war that must be waged on Mars and Earth to defeat the UME once and for all, and the Alliance must also remain vigilant of the threat posed by the Draconians and the Garm from the far reaches of space.

Quick Update on Caledonian Cabal

12 04 2014

Howdy Everyone!

I have finished the final edit!!! So I’m currently working on the blurb with my editor. (It’s always been hard for me to compress my 55,000 word novels into a couple hundred word blurb that doesn’t give anything away.) Then I’ll send it off the my graphic designer to have it added to the book cover. So things are progressing well! Still no solid date yet. I’m hoping for late April or early May though.

I’ll keep you posted.

Hot Jets!

Editing Caledonian Cabal

26 03 2014

It’s been way too long since my last update, but editing is going great. I’m on the final edit and should be done editing by the end of the month. From there I have to get the file in the proper format for ebooks and for paperback. So I’ll keep y’all updated on the release date, but until then I hope you enjoy the first of chapter, where you’ll meet a new character (and she’s one of my favorite characters) Shey Hunter.

It’s Been Awhile!

24 09 2013

Hey everyone! I’m sorry it’s been so long since my last post. I just want to give everyone a quick update.

What have I been working on for so long?

I’m in the middle of doing two things right now, I’m finishing the editing for Caledonian Cabal (I’m on the final round of editing!) I’m also working on polishing up the fourth book in the Almek Manning Series so that I can get that to my editor soon, too. 

I don’t have a firm deadline for the release of Caledonian Cabal, but I’ll keep you posted…

Until then Hot Jets!

First Book Signing

24 04 2013

I’ll be attending my first book signing at the Comic Book Craze in Garland Texas on May 4th! I’ll have copies of both the Zochtil and Starwarden, along with a cool new bookmark I made for my books that I’ll be handing out with each sale.

In Remembrance of Chris Kyle, one of America’s True Heroes

3 02 2013

I just wanted to make a quick post in remembrance of a personal hero of mine, Chris Kyle. He served the United States for many years and was recently shot in cold blood. Rest in peace Chris Kyle. America owes you big time.

The STARs (Space Terrestrial and Rocket-side special forces) were based off of the Navy SEALs. I hope that Captain Bronski and his team of STARs can live up to the proud tradition left by such men as Chris Kyle.
