FandomFest 2017

fandomfest-2017-vendor-booths-51Hey all, I’ve got news! The family and I are leaving Colorado for a few weeks and heading over to Kentucky for FandomFest in Louisville from the 28th – the 30th. I’ll be there with my publishing company, Shadow Alley Press, along with eden Hudson–who is the amazing author of the Redneck Apocalypse Series and the Jubal Van Zandt Series. Both eden and I will be doing book signings, plus a whole bunch of awesome panels, so if you’re in the area, come check us out. You can find out more and get tickets here: FandomFest

Beautiful Corpse (A Jubal Van Zandt Novel Book 2)

BeautifulCorpseHey folks, I know I just announced a book release yesterday, but our Publishing Company, Shadow Alley Press, released another amazing title today: Beautiful Corpse, A Jubal Van Zandt Novel by the awesomely-talented eden Hudson. This is the follow-up title to Revenge of the Bloodslinger (with another book, Soul Jar, coming out in about a month). It is wickedly good and if you haven’t started the series you should—I serious cannot recommend it highly enough.


The best thief in the history of the Revived Earth is back, and this time it’s personal.

A deadly plague is ravaging the world’s population and threatening to kill the only person Jubal Van Zandt cares about—himself. If he doesn’t find a cure soon, he’s dead.

The most promising lead is buried in the ruins of an ancient sunken city stalked by savage predators, cunning parasites, and the twisted souls of long-dead mages. It would take an army to get Jubal inside … or just one of the most renowned knights in Guild history. The one Jubal betrayed and left for dead eighteen months ago.

First Jubal has to convince her not to kill him. Then he has to convince her to help save him.

“Jubal Van Zandt is a terrible person—dark, arrogant, and narcissistic to his soul—yet you also can’t help but love him. And likewise, his story is a dark and often painful thing, but sprinkled with occasional glimpses of hope and maybe even redemption.”
–James A. Hunter, Author of the Yancy Lazarus Series and Viridian Gate Online

Viridian Gate Online: The Jade Lord

ViridianGate3_v2Yep, that’s right folks—it’s finally here: Release Day! You can now pick up Viridian Gate Online book 3 on Amazon. Hope you dig it!


November, 2042

It’s been a busy month for thirty-two-year-old Jack Mitchel:

Three weeks ago, he died.

Two weeks ago, he founded the first Faction in the ultra-immersive, fantasy-based VRMMORPG, Viridian Gate Online.

A week and a half ago the world ended, destroyed by a cataclysmic asteroid.

Seven days ago, he conquered the Imperial city of Rowanheath, bringing all of Eldgard to the brink of war.

Though Jack’s Faction, the Crimson Alliance, has a tenuous truce with tech genius and Imperial lord, Robert Osmark, Jack knows it can’t last. Osmark is devious and power hungry, and it’s only a matter of time before he sends his forces to wipe Jack and his underdog crew off the map for good.

If Jack hopes to survive another month inside of VGO, he must find a way to beat Osmark and his army of bloodthirsty thugs, and a new quest—the Path of the Jade Lord—may be just the ticket. But this quest will be far harder than anything Jack’s faced before, pushing him to his mental, physical, and moral limits. And if Jack isn’t careful, his quest to defeat Osmark and the Empire may end up turning him into the despot he’s been fighting against.
