Three Spartans Book Launch

Last Thursday, friends and family came out to Vancouver Kidsbooks where we launched The Three Spartans, my newest novel and first middle grade comedy.

My publisher, Crwth Press. Jonathan on the left, Melanie on the right.
Friends who are family: Sarah and Rob
Don and Meg who came from a long journey to be there for me. Love these two!
My Dungeons and Dragons family. Matan, Ashley, and Adrian.
And of course my housemate Suzie and my girlfriend, Amanda. Support and love–what every writer needs!

This certainly won’t be my final stop in promoting the book! I have a signing at Black Bond Books this Saturday, and more to announce in 2020!

To sign off, here’s the video Crwth Press made of the book.

Book Signing November 16 in Delta, BC

New book news!

See that toothy grin? That’s the look an author gets when a new contract has been offered and signed. Crwth Press will be publishing my fifth novel…more details to come as they are made available.

What I can say for now, is that this will be my first middle grade novel–and my first adventure/comedy.

A hint of what the book is about is in the two photos above.

Children of Ruin Book Two?

I was cleaning up my workspace when I came across an old notebook where I wrote the first draft of Children of Ruin. My working title was, “Zombieapocalypse.”

And then this happened:

Rancor Chronicles

 

In 2005, my first professionally published novel hit stores in Canada, the US, Australia, and New Zealand. Rancour was meant to be a four-book series, with the second out in 2007, the next 2009, and the final 2011. Rancour sold out its first print run within the first two years, and left its prequel, Pyre, to keep the series alive.

Rancour was in limbo for the next four years, until 2011 when the second run was finally printed. Before the third book was released, I severed ties with the publisher due to conflicts similar to these. Publishing can be a minefield of hopes and dreams up against business decisions and broken deals.

The Rancour Chronicles, now titled, RANCOR CHRONICLES, is being released in 2018 and 2019. It’s hard to believe it’s been thirteen years since this book first made its appearance.

Rancor: Vampyre Hunter can be purchased on Amazon now in either paperback or Kindle format. Also on iBooks, Kobo, Nook, or Angus and Robertson by following this link.

Pyre: Vampyre Defender, Renegade: Vampyre Scourge, and Turning: Rise of the Wulfsign, will all be released in June of 2019.
