With the captain’s mind in shambles, Jon and Tom set out to find the passage home through the black mountain range, hoping to find a cure for Baltsaros’s madness. However, when the men are forced to part ways, darkness takes root in the schism created; fate, lust, and vengeance become obsessions threatening to tear apart the fragile bonds holding the three together.
Following on the heels of Sacrificed, Fated takes the pirates on a quest to find those responsible for the captain’s bloody beginnings. But can they survive what awaits them where past and present meet?
Reunited once more, the crew of Baal’s Heart must make the long and treacherous journey south to the towering spires of the Devil’s Isles. The path through the mountain range is fraught with peril; mayhem and tragedy plague the pirate ship, but what the men find beyond the spires is the most shocking of all.
In this sequel to the acclaimed Caged, the pirates are dragged into a dangerous new world by Captain Baltsaros’s all-consuming obsession. In the midst of terror and chaos, Jon learns that the captain and first mate have been keeping secrets from him. But will the truth tear them apart?
Three years ago today I published Caged: Love and Treachery on the High Seas. It was unedited, the cover was a weird size, I hadn’t even given a thought to marketing it. I didn’t figure anyone would read it, honestly. I just published it for fun, on the suggestion of a friend, and basically walked away.
Then I got a review. And then another. And then another.
Well, here we are three years later. I’ve published five full-length novels with a sixth on the way, six novellas and novelettes, and a number of short or flash fics… and I hope to publish many more.
To celebrate the third anniversary of my first published work, I’m giving away five audiobook copies of Caged, narrated by the extraordinary Michael Ferraiuolo. All you have to do is go to this post and follow the instructions :)
I know Mondays suck, but this Monday happens to be the day that Careened: Winter Solstice in Madierus is finally out of Kindle Unlimited and available at ARe and Smashwords (and more places, once Smashwords gets the files out to Barnes & Noble, etc).
Kestrel’s Talon is the first book in a new fantasy series, The Stonewatchers. I’m looking forward to introducing you to these guys… but it’s impossible to say much about the story without spoiling it. So… I’ll just say that if you enjoyed the Baal’s Heart books, this book might be for you.
Today marks two years as an author. Time flies when you’re having a blast!
Two years ago I hit “publish” for the first time… and send Caged out into the wild.
To celebrate, I’ve put Caged up for a Kindle Countdown Sale. What does that mean? Well, right now, you can get Caged for 99¢/£0.99 at Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk, but the price will continue to increase every two days until it goes back to the usual. Just follow this link and get your copy today! :)
Howdy! I’m back in the land of snow and cold and ready to get back to writing. I did “cheat” a bit while I was on the beach and did the equivalent of scribbling down scenes on napkins (Notes) and scraps of paper (iA Writer) which I started to sort through yesterday. Kestrel’s Talon has hit 60k which is about the halfway mark in the story. I think. I’m a little obsessed with this story… Instead of reading the 10 or so books I had in my pile to read while in Barbados, I spent a lot of time reading over what I’d written of Kestrel and editing. However… the one book I did read was a huge one—Xperiment by Dan Skinner—so there’s that.
But mostly, and I really swear, I just relaxed, suntanned, swam, drank, people-watched, chilled out… I have a post in me about Barbados in general, but that will probably be next week. In the meantime, I’ve put all my vacation pics at the bottom of this post if you want to take a look.
Did you know that I’m running a few giveaways at Goodreads right now? Here they are:
