The King Revealed

…And now … Coming to you hot! … Straight from his hit tour of Tirn Aill, Lyonesse, Vegas and Limbo! … I give you … (drum roll) … THE KING!

The King: The Jester King Fantasy Series: Book 4

“Thank you! Thank you very much!”

That’s right kiddies, this is the official cover release of The King. Which means it won’t be long now before I announce that The King has come!

The King is scheduled for release December 1st, just in time for Christmas 2017!

Are you excited? I’m pretty darn excited to finally be rolling out this tomb – book 4 in The Jester King Fantasy Series!

This will be the final installment of the (main) series and will wrap up all those nagging questions that have been keeping you up and eating all of the sugar plums in your head since you read The Innkeeper’s Son. (Won’t that be nice?)

To get ready, I took a peek at your letter to Santa…

You wanted MORE BATTLES  

You wanted MORE MAGIC 



You wanted MORE ROMANCE 
IT’S IN  …  (Wait! “Is this a kissing book?”)  …  WELL maybe a little  …  YES!

And you said you want it all wrapped up in a nice little bow  …
Well, I don’t do nice little bows!  …  But as I mentioned above, I do wrap up all those nagging  plot threads.

Looks like I’m giving you everything on your Christmas wish list!  You’re welcome.

Be on the lookout for another announcement from me very soon, when The King is available for PRE-ORDER!


3… 2…1… Launch Team!

Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the Launch Team and how one becomes a member.

Membership has it’s perks. Just read below and you’ll see what I mean.

The details for the Launch Team are these:

To Qualify:

  • First, you must be a part of the Reader’s Group. (Basically, this means you have joined my email list.)
    • You can join the Readers’ Group simply by signing up. (Click here to sign up.)   … OR …
    • You can join the Readers’ Group and get a free book in exchange for your email address. (Click here and follow the directions on the screen.)
    • You can join the Readers’ Group by going to the home page and taking advantage of the free book offer. (Click here and follow the directions on the screen.)
  • Second, you must read the information provided below and promise (in writing) that you will do your part as a member of the Launch Team, as stipulated below.

Your Part:

  • You promise to review my books – if you like them.
    • Please let me know if I send you a book or a genre you don’t like.
    • For books that have been released, please post your reviews as soon as it is convenient for you.
    • For newly released books, please post your reviews on the release date or as soon after the release date as possible.
  • Going the extra mile (completely optional stuff):
    • Please follow me on twitter, Facebook, Goodreads, and BookBub (as many of these as you like), and share my tweets, posts and offers. This is particularly helpful as a new book is approaching a release date or is going on sale.
    • Please share the links for The Innkeeper’s Son and The Jester with your friends if you think they would enjoy the books and would want to join the Readers’ Group.
    • Send me your comments on, or any errors you find in the books I make available to you. The earlier the better. This will give me a chance to fix the errors prior to the release. If you would like to do this in a more official capacity, I can also add you to a Beta Readers group that I will be forming (still in the concept stage, so stay tuned).
    • Please provide feedback when I poll the Reader’s Group or Launch Team. Examples might be helping me come up with a great name for the Readers’ Group, or judging a fan-art contest, etc.
    • Really, the extra mile is up to you. If you come up with something you’d like to do, on your own or with the team or Readers’ Group, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do to support the effort. An example might be, that you have a blog where you interview authors. Please consider asking me!

My Part:

  • I promise to make all my books available to you for free, in advance of their release. (This applies to books yet to be released. Some previously released books may be available upon request.)
    • If you tell me you don’t like a book or a genre, I will do my best not to send you more of the same.
    • From time to time, I may contact the team for support in sharing special tweets or posts and otherwise getting out the word on an upcoming release, sale or event.
    • I will also be sharing news that is pertinent to the team.
  • Going the extra mile:
    • I will be offering the Launch Team swag and various gifts. This is not a payment or bribe for reviews! This is just my way of saying “thank you” for being a part of the Team. I don’t know at this time what kinds of swag or gifts I’ll be providing (probably books, posters, bookmarks, etc.), or what logistics this might entail. I will likely have to get your mailing/shipping address to mail things to you at some point. If you don’t want to share that information with me, I completely get that. Know that I will never share your information with anyone (other than on the shipping label).


I know that looks like a lot, but after posting reviews, your part is really as simple or as grand as you want to make it.

If after reading this post, you are interested in joining the Readers’ Group and Launch Team, please follow the steps above and I’ll look forward to hearing from you!

Best Wishes and Better Adventures,

The Small print: The terms described above may be updated from time to time.

Imagine My Surprise

There I am minding my own little world, trying to keep my nose clean and get out four books before Christmas. When …


It nails me right between the eyes…

The cover I worked so hard to find and perfect and purchase, for The Prince (book #3) is all wrong!

Please allow me to define all wrong.

All wrong in this case means the that the scene depicted on the cover is not even in The Prince! In earlier days, when I was ironing some things out with the story, it might have been, but now that particular scene is firmly in the early parts of book #4, The King!

How could I have been so blind?

That scene hasn’t been in The Prince for quite some time now. I made that decision, long ago, and yet…here it was staring at me from the cover of that same book.

So like most hardened warriors, I drew my sword and  – who am I kidding – panic immediately set in as I tried to figure out how to pull back all the submissions I’d already sent out for book #3 to various distributors and printers and the like.

And what was I to do about the OBVIOUSLY WRONG COVER?

Well, once I realized that only some of my distributors would actually charge me for the change, I set to work to find a new cover. I went back to the same source I used for all four original covers, but nothing there seemed right. Nearly out of hope, I searched through an images site I belong to and suddenly things started to look up. Eventually, I found the perfect image and did some image editing and Word magic to duplicate my cover template for the series and presto-change-o new cover!

The rest of the horrible logistics story I’ll leave to your imagination. But for right now, just enjoy the newest cover in The Jester King Fantasy Series, bask in his glory, and allow me to relax on my laurels for a second or two before a new publishing fire springs up and ruins this perfectly dreadful cold and fever I’m trying to vanquish.

By the way, this is the official cover release for The Prince!

Oh, yes, almost forgot! The Innkeeper’s Son also had it’s official debut today! Two 5-star reviews so far. Thank you, please keep the reviews coming!

Until next time…

Best Wishes and Better Adventures,
