Night of Zealotry, the 3rd story in the Assassin Without a Name series, was officially released to Amazon, B&N, Kobo, Google Play, and the iBookstore today.
Fresh off his adventure in Killing the Dead, the Assassin Without a Name finds himself mixed up with a mysterious group of religious zealots whose interest in technology is anything but well-intentioned. Here's the full blurb:
Take out the mark, retrieve the scroll, and avoid getting killed by his protection detail of Black Guard mercenaries. That was the job. Simple enough, or so the Assassin Without a Name thought, until he finds himself smack in the middle of three organizations all vying for possession of the item he just stole.
Of the three, the worst is the Jakaree, a group of fanatical priests willing to kill to fulfill their mysterious goals. But by making the Assassin Without a Name a target, they're about to get a lesson in death themselves from one of the ... [More]
I'm kicking my Assassin Without a Name series into high gear, with the third and longest story yet, Night of Zealotry, set to come out in the next couple of weeks. Also, I've got three more stories all in various stages planned for release thereafter.
Right now, you can get the first two stories in the series, Fine Wine and Killing the Dead, for free at Amazon and other select online retailers.
With those on your eReader, wouldn't you want the next story too? Here's how to get it for free:
Sign-up to my mailing list. It's that simple. In exchange for allowing me to notify you of all of my new releases as they're available, I'll not only send you the next, unreleased story in the Assassin Without a Name series, but I'll also send you each and every story thereafter.
What that means is this: Sign-up today and I'll send you Night of Zealotry in a couple of weeks when it's released. Because it's a longer story than either of the first two, it's going to retail for $2.99. But you'll get ... [More]
The Five Elements (The Alchemancer: Book One) is 99 cents on Amazon today only! Get it here.
I've been running a few promos lately for The Five Elements. I'm not big on sale prices without some sort of advertising behind it because it's near impossible to effectively get the word out without this outside help. Shouting it from the Twitter rooftops is not a good strategy, IMO, because it just adds to the noise and annoys people.
For this promotion, I chose eBookSoda. We're seeing more and more of these curated style email services where you get 1-2 featured books per email based on which genres you wish to receive info about. Bookbub pioneered this format and have had some success with it, so of course others are now attempting to emulate the model. Nothing wrong with that and, in fact, it's a great thing for authors and readers alike because it creates options.
So, eBookSoda today and then no more promotions for at least a couple of month... [More]

Unlike previous year in review posts, I'm going to skip the usual blog stats breakdown. I used to get a kick out of seeing how many people stumbled onto my posts, read them, and possibly even left a comment. But I think the tone of this blog has changed to the point where while I still get a kick out of those things, they're not so much at the forefront of my focus. I'm ecstatic that this blog has posts which have been read well over 100,000 times now (the top 3 actually account for over 100,000 just by themselves), but my focus is more and more on my writing, so that's what this review is really about.
2013 was a great year for me. I released the first two Assassin Without a Name stories, with a third in the works presently.
Also, I finished up and released the second book in The Alchemancer series, The Nullification Engine. Initial reviews are positive, though few, but I have many more coming as review copies continue to go out. I'm really looking at the long term with my releases r... [More]
