News & Updates!
My latest blog post Some Notes on Dredd is up. If you haven't seen Dredd 3D you definitely should. Check it out to see why I think so, and why I'm sad there likely won't be a sequel.
5 Reasons Why We'll Probably See Alien Life Someday - my new blog post is up. Come check it out and see if you agree with my reasoning.
I've been trying to be better with my blog as of late. Aiming for 1-2 posts a week (Hoping for a Monday-Thursday schedule.) Won't be easy while I'm working on book 3, but I promise I'll give it my best. If there's a topic you'd like me to write about, anything related to sci-fi or space science, let me know!
I've got a Tumblr now. I think I finally got the hang of it so I'll be blogging various things about science and sci-fi there throughout the week. Come check it out by clicking on this text or on the RSS feed button above.
The versions are linked on Amazon.com, so whatever link you click (to the right) can get you to the version you want.
Also, the "Look Inside" function on the ebook version has the first 3 chapters up. Still unsure if you want to buy a copy? Check it out first or download a sample for your Kindle!
Keltan's Gambit is available! Although the versions (ebook and paperback) haven't linked in Amazon yet, you can get to sales outlets for either through my blog along with a sample (just click on this text). Or select a link in the announcement to the right.
Target date for Keltan's Gambit is now Tuesday February 3rd!
Should all go well, you'll be able to purchase the paperback or ebook versions by then.

Keltan's Gambit now has an ISBN and a Goodreads Page! Almost there!
I'm tentatively setting my target pub date for next week. I can't be more specific than that, but I will announce it here and everywhere I can (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) once the pub process completes.

Baron Zalor Revenant's plan to take control of the Confederation of Sovereign Systems is on the verge of completion. With the Abyssian Praeter Nero Graves trapped and powerless behind enemy lines, and Revenant's enemies playing right into his hands, it seems no one can stop him. What he doesn't realize is Cylus Keltan has reached the breaking point.
Pushed around by his friends, and forced into a betrothal with his hated cousin, Cylus is on the edge.
Forced to take a stand, it seems House Keltan is poised for a comeback, but is this boldness a result of new-found courage or alien mind-control? And just what is the link between the mysterious VoQuana and Baron Revenant? Will Investigative Reporter Cygni Aragón uncover the truth in time to stop the baron, or has she fallen into his trap?
Allegiances will change, battles will erupt, and the deadly nano-weapon known as Siren will be unleashed in Keltan's Gambit!
Available Now in eBook and Print!
Cylus Keltan wants nothing more than to stay out of the poisonous bed of greed and politics, but when his surrogate father throws himself from a mile-high window, he is forced back into the corrupt world he swore never to return to. With the help of Nero Graves, a cybernetic agent, he uncovers a plot to cripple the government and deploy an alien super plague with the potential to kill billions known as "Siren."
Can they discover the link between his friend's death and Siren before it's too late?
