Where the cursed gun rides, blood will follow…

Former slave Ezra has escaped servitude with a damaged gun and the memories of the priest who bore it. Pursued by the ghosts of his past, he reluctantly embarks on a quest to find a wardsmith who can repair the cursed weapon before it damages the land Ezra is trying to save. Can Ezra survive gunfights, betrayals, and the machinations of an old foe, or will the journey leave him as broken as his gun?

A 6x9” trade paperback is also available for $8.99.

But what if you missed, Gunmage, book 1 in the series? Well, you could either drop another 99¢ for the book, or you could get it free (along with two other books) when you sign up for my newsletter.

NaNoWriMo in the Bag


It’s the final day of NaNoWriMo2018, and I just eased my way over the finish line. Truth be told, I'd finished with the Wardsmith first draft a couple days ago, but it came in at just under 47,000 words, so I've spent the last couple days mapping out the next book in the series.

Writing up character backstories and roughing out the first few chapters of the next book in the series took me over the 50k finish line, but I got there in the end. Now I'll just let the Wardsmith draft sit fallow for a bit before I put on my editor's hat. If you read Gunmage and are looking forward to the next book in Tales of the Avernine, I'm setting my sights on March/April for Wardsmith to hit the shelves, so watch this space.
