Courted Sanctuary Giveaway!

If you want a free copy of Courted Sanctuary, read on.

To celebrate the launch of Courted Sanctuary, I am giving away a limited number of ePub copies of the book. Not all copies are created equal. There are copies of the mass release version, copies of a version that has a preface about my path writing Courted Sanctuary, and one very special edition that contains a copy of a hand-written letter I will write for the fan who wins it.

To get one of the preface copies or one of the mass release copies, simply email me asking for one. If you want the one-of-a-kind copy, then email me with the answer to this question: What is hidden inside Shinga's fang? If you are the first person to send me the correct answer, I will contact you for some further information to help personalize your letter.

For all versions except the one-of-a-kind copy, I am offering only ePub files. For the one-of-a-kind copy, I will do my best to accommodate the first fan with the correct answer.

Good luck!

May 8, 2011, Devil's Sacrifice is now available at Smashwords. Availability at Amazon and Amazon UK is coming soon, hopefully within a day or so. The first installment of The Monstrous Hunt is now up. UPDATE: Devil's Sacrifice is now up at Amazon and Amazon UK.

May 1, 2011, There is quite a bit of news for today. My short story, Devil's Sacrifice, will be available for purchase sometime this week, hopefully Tuesday, May 3.

I also have a small announcement to make. You may or may not have noticed a new tab in the navigation with the title The Monstrous Hunt. This is for a new project I am working on. Sometime this month, I will begin uploading portions of a novella I want to start. Though I have to work out the details of when exactly it will be updated, I want to keep the updates on a strict schedule that will likely be on the same day every week to two weeks. The outline is drafted but I haven't actually written a word just yet. The plan is that I devote only a half hour or hour to writing each installment just to see how it turns out. As this is purely an experiment for the heck of it, it will be available free of charge on this site. Once it is completed, I will probably put it all together in one file to download for free. For now, all I will say is that it will take place in contemporary York, England and involve strange murders. It will be quite different from my usual work but it will still fall into the fantasy genre.

Installments will probably be short as I don't want this experiment to interfere with the writing time devoted to working on The Moirean Tapestry. The first draft of Book 3 (Prequal 2) is 3/4 of the way finished. I want to have it completed this month if possible so that the final draft is ready for early Fall release. Incidentally, the plan is still to have Book 2 (Prequal 1) released in mid-summer. Research for Book 4 has already begun and I hope to have it started around the same time.

March 21, 2011: Gods' Masks is now available for purchase at Smashwords.

March 5, 2011: Shauna's Inheritance is now available for purchase at Smashwords.

February 2011: A new short story is in the final editing stages. The God's Masks cover is almost complete. An official release will likely follow soon after.

November 2010: Completed the short story 'Shauna's Inheritance'. Updated my works in progress.
