New Release – Poem: Prayer to the Tribunal.

Good news, ladies and gents! We got a new release today!

“Prayer to the Tribunal,” a poem I wrote, has been graciously posted up by a dear friend of mine, Patricia DeJong. You can check it out over at her website, the link is right … here. There’s also a permanent link on the published page.

The piece is a bit of background for my upcoming NaNoWriMo novel, “Under A Falling Sky.” I wanted to work with some piece of the story and build some kind of foundation, so I took up Patricia’s offer of having a poem slot on her site. This also gave me a chance to write and finish something quick and brief and get something out there for the crowd to see.

This one was, indeed, a quick write and was very cathartic to create. It doesn’t create a ton of backdrop of the setting, but it does throw in some certain pieces of setting information. In the end, I hope this creates some interest in the setting and might drum up enough questions that might grab some readers.

Either way, back to watching – a little – TV shows, then working on “Gunslingers of Asgard.” Ciao!

New releases!

A new day, a couple new releases!

First out of the gate, we have A Prayer to the Exiled, a poetic prayer amongst the Vashari in the Dark Stars universe. This piece is exclusively being posted on her website [link], with the full piece posted right … here. The link to this piece has been added to the Published Pieces menu on this website for future references.

This piece gives a little insight into Vashari culture, along with offering a small glimpse into one of the two protagonists for my upcoming works, Vaerys Tyrus Dirion. I hope you all enjoy this piece, just as I enjoyed writing and sharing it.

Second, A Debt of Lead has been released! It is currently available [in pdf, mobi, and epub formats] in the downloads box to the left on this page. Alternatively, there is a direct link to the zip over on the Downloads page.

This story is the debut of my second protagonist, Jacob Wilkens, for the Dark Stars universe. In this story, he’s got to fight his way up through a casino that operates as a front for a stim cartel. If he doesn’t, the cartel’s henchmen will kidnap and kill one of his associates, something he can’t let happen.

These works, combined with Dawnstar, form the beginning of our exposure to the Dark Stars universe. This new universe is a place filled with pirates, massive corporations, stim cartels, aliens known as the Vashari, civil war amongst mankind, and more.

Here’s hoping you stick around and enjoy the ride.

The June issue of eFiction is here!

That’s right, eFiction’s June issue has just released today, and with it has come the release of my short story “Dawnstar”.

A story about a security detail of Marines on board the TACN Dawnstar and their fight against pirates; Dawnstar is my most action-packed short story currently written. If you want to give Dawnstar a shot, or check out eFiction Magazine in general, be sure to head over to either their main website, or the Amazon webpage.

I sincerely hope you all enjoy both the publication, and my own story as well. For now, I’ve got writing to get back to.

You stay classy; I’ll stay busy.
