Was it suicide or murder?
Cygni Aragón is an investigative reporter for the Confederation's leading multi-species news outlet, the Spur Herald. Little does she realize what she's getting involved in when she sneaks into the crime scene below the Intelligent Systems Tower and discovers the broken body of a popular Confederate baron.
Cygni's quest to find out will lead her down the rabbit hole into a world of barons, cyborgs, and a conspiracy that could bring down the entire Confederate government.
A new story set in the Blood Siren universe, Towerfall introduces us to a new character in the epic space adventure!

Cylus Keltan wants nothing more than to stay out of the poisoned bed of greed and politics, but as the last heir to a financial empire spanning hundreds of star systems no one wants to let him be alone. When a close friend throws himself from a mile-high window, Cylus is forced back into the world he swore never to return to.
With the help of the cyborg investigator, Nero Graves, he uncovers a plot to cripple the government and deploy an alien super plague with the potential to kill billions known only as "Siren."
Can they discover the link between his friend's death and Siren before it's too late?

News & Updates!
Greetings to all! I can't believe it's been two months since I last updated this page. I'm a little embarrassed, so I'll get right to it.
Book 1 of The Chronicles of the Orion Spur- Blood Siren -2.0 is still on the way, it's just hit a bit of an indefinite delay while I go through the beta read process. I'll update this site (as well as my G+ and Facebook feeds) as soon as there is word to report!
In the meanwhile, Happy Holidays!
With the shutdown finally over the Copyright Office is back open! Hopefully I'll be able to post a release schedule for Blood Siren 2nd Ed. soon!
So, in case you didn't know, I live in the USA. Unfortunately, our government is playing games and have closed our Copyright office (along with NASA and a few other things that are important) until this childishness is through. As such, I'm unable to register Blood Siren's 2nd Edition until the office is open, and its release will be delayed.
Hopefully our politicians will soon get their brains back and realize we're paying them to serve us.
And just when you think it's all coming together...
I'm adding a lot more content than I thought I would be. In the end, it's going to make for a much more solid and entertaining product, but in the meantime it means a further delay in publication. Apologies! The new content will feature both Cygni (of Towerfall) and Sable (from Blood Siren), and will fill in the universe a bit more than the original edition did. I'll post news once I get an idea of a schedule of publication again!
Getting closer to having the new Blood Siren ready. I'm nearly done editing and am working on some of the expanded content.
Final editing on 2nd Edition is taking longer than expected. I'd hoped to get the book out by the end of the month, but it looks like an early-October release is more likely. Apologies, but I think this will make for a much more solid product and a better read!
The new Blood Siren cover is finalized! I'll have a release date very soon, expect it to be within the month!
