Black Friday Deal • #Free Sword & Sorcery

KIRASGRIn the spirit of Black Friday, I’m offering my book Kira as a free Kindle download HERE.

Blurb: Poisoned by an enemy, a young warrior struggles to find an antidote before she succumbs to enslavement. At the same time, she’s desperate to save Dorsit, a Leopard Clan wizard whose youth and magic has been stolen by a murderous wizard on a rampage. As Kira’s homeland is invaded by bloodthirsty legions, she flees across the country in a bid to reach the Mirrum Mountain nymphs and a legendary cure. Hunted by shadow hounds, Cyclopes, and an evil jinn, will her wits and skill as a warrior be enough to survive?


Kira directed Myst onto the main thoroughfare connecting the east and west borders of Nomad Territory. Although the road was deserted at present, local farmers and merchants would soon arrive as they delivered goods to Wyckcrest Village marketplace. The early morning air seemed to energize Myst, but Kira kept her to a fast walk. With such a long way to go, she didn’t want the horse to tire too quickly. A week’s ride lay ahead of her as she journeyed toward the eastern mountain range. Then, after she reached the river, her route would turn south for another three or four days.
Her growling stomach reminded Kira she’d not yet eaten. Just as she reached toward her saddlebag, two unsavory men leaped into the road with swords drawn. She reined Myst in. “Step aside.”

“Hand over your money bag, lass, and we won’t hurt ye.”

Kira sighed inwardly, even as her hand moved inside her jacket. “I’ve no wish to kill you before breakfast. Toss your swords to the ground and back away.”
The men exchanged a glance and laughed. After a moment, Kira joined in—which bewildered the robbers at first, but then made them angry. No sooner had they stepped toward her when she hurled a pair of throwing knives. The men crumpled to the dirt, clutching their throats. Too late, she saw a third highwayman armed with a bow and arrow, perched in a tree.

When an unwelcome suitor comes to call, Samantha seizes her chance. She beguiles the prince into taking her north, intending to abandon him at her earliest opportunity. Unfortunately, his captivating good looks and charming manner present an unforeseen complication—especially when she is forced to accept help from the very man she has deceived.

To maintain his bachelorhood, handsome Prince Wills is not above deception.

Magical MisperceptionsgrMM6X9

Young Prince Lee can’t talk to girls at all until he meets Jona Haever. His aunt, Queen Gaia, invites Jona to the castle for the summer to help Lee learn social graces. Although Her Majesty makes it clear Jona is no better than a servant, Jona and Lee become best friends. When the summer comes to a close, the two continue to correspond through a pair of magical boxes conjured by the Wizard Farland. Nine years later, Jona and Lee are closer than ever, but any romantic feelings between them are forbidden by law. Are the differences between a prince and a commoner too large to overcome, or are they just a matter of magical misperception?

Whimsical Tendencies

Although she has no memories before the quake that destroyed the kingdom of Augury, Cypher McCall holds a steadfast hatred of the repressive Cauldian regime now ruling the country. Because her magical gifts are deemed subversive, she does her best to avoid detection. Unfortunately for Cypher, however, she’s too beautiful to ignore. After a Cauldian contingent arrives in her hometown, a chance encounter leaves her repulsed by the arrogant Prince Ewan and attracted to his distant cousin, Lord Joss.

When she learns Prince Ewan plans to tear down the ruins of nearby Castle Augur, Cypher vows to stop him. Although handsome Lord Joss tries to protect her from his vindictive cousin, Cypher can’t bring herself to trust the enemy. At the same time, nightmares and dreams nudge her toward reclaiming childhood memories. She stumbles on a silver key that she hopes will unlock her past, but first she must confront a long repressed horror at the Castle Augur ruins.

Tournament of Chance: Dragon Rebel • #SALE •

dec2017DRcoverFThe king tried to kill her. Now it’s her turn to repay the favor.

For years, Heather dedicated herself to winning a tournament that turned out to be a sham. Worse, by revealing the truth, she becomes a hunted enemy of the king. Well, two can play that game. The skills she’s honed as an archer are the exact ones she’ll use to level the playing field…and this time she has shape-shifting dragons on her side.

Tournament of Chance: Dragon Rebel is on sale (from $2.99 to $0.99) this week, through September 24th. (US & UK only)


Suddenly a flock of birds rose from a rocky shelf down below and streaked toward the dragons in a hostile mass. As the birds drew closer, Heather gasped. “Those aren’t birds, they’re flying reptiles!”

“Uh-oh,” Manny said.

“Boratures. They are very dangerous,” Shimmer said.

“Those must be nesting grounds,” Joe called out. “Go faster.”

The boratures were the size of sheep, with a tough hide covering their impressive wingspan. Their long and narrow heads ended with pointed beaks that appeared to be unpleasantly sharp. Heather guessed their long talons were equally lethal. She shuddered to think what they would do to her skin. Although the creatures were far smaller than dragons, they numbered in the hundreds. Even worse was the incredible speed with which the boratures were closing in from behind. Forced to split apart, Shimmer and Manny headed straight up, and Dane angled lower.

“Hold very tight, Heather. I’ll lose them in the trees.”

She flattened herself against Dane’s neck as he hurtled through the forest. Unfortunately, the boratures overtook him and began to claw at his wings. As their vicious talons opened gash after gash in Dane’s hide, he flinched. With a keening cry and a barrel roll, he shot upward once more. Heather’s grip loosened, and then she could hold on no longer.

Thick foliage slapped her in the face as she descended through the trees. A vine briefly broke her fall, but she continued downward when it snapped. Finally her desperate fingers found purchase on a leafy branch. She dropped down to the next branch, and so on, until she managed to reach the ground.

Stunned and dazed, a sharp pain in her midsection made it difficult for her to breathe. Cuts and scratches marked her flesh everywhere, and something warm and wet was trickling down her face. Shaking badly, her knees finally gave way. Several minutes passed before she calmed down enough to assess her situation. Of one thing she was absolutely certain; Dane wasn’t coming back and she was on her own.
