It's here. After a couple of decades of writing this book, it's finally going to ship. And it now has a beautiful cover to grace its pages.

Piers Anthony Review!

One of the things I did to promote my upcoming book was to send it out to a few authors in the field of fantasy. One of them was Piers Anthony. Piers is a fantasy legend. His books introduced me to the genre when I was in high school. I devoured every series, like Xanth,... Continue Reading →

Perhaps inspired by my recent behind-the-scenes write-up of Death Gate, CrankyTemplar (aka James Baram) recently posted a video including all of the possible ways to lose/die in the game. It's an impressive piece of investigative reporting, achieved by someone with a literal death wish. While I rarely dedicated graphics or animation to silly deaths, I... Continue Reading →

Never Too Early for Fan Art!

For Father's Day, my youngest child created the first Child of Chaos fan art for my upcoming novel, and it's wonderful. It depicts the scene from the prologue (which you can read in the novels section) of Lorre frozen in front of the statue of War, with the dice artifacts at her feet. You can... Continue Reading →
