Book 3 of The Last Enclave

Just a quick update. You might not be aware, but 2020 kind of sucked. That said, I've got a bit of good news. I finished the outline for book 3 on January 1st, and now I'm stuck in and writing. I'm tempted to post chapters on Royal Road, but haven't made a decision about that as [...]

New series in 2019

I'm working on a new book right now, part of a new series I plan to publish in 2019. I haven't got a title or even a series name yet. I'm waiting for inspiration there. The pitch, in (very) brief: Our hero buys a house in a small town at a tax auction. In the process of demolition he [...]
