Hooray! It’s finally whispersynced!
What does that mean? Well, if you own a kindle copy of Sacrificed bought through Amazon, you can get the Audible version for a few bucks and listen to Michael Ferraiuolo’s incredible narration.

And yes, Fated and Careened are in the pipeline to be narrated by late summer. :)
Did you love Michael Ferraiuolo’s narration of Caged? Want the next one?
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?
What about Michael Ferraiuolo’s performance did you like?
In a word: incredible. His ability to switch seamlessly between and among all the characters’ voices is truly awesome. This is far more than just a “reading”… it is performance art.
It looks like my pirates are getting a bump in readership… for the new readers and the longtime fans, did you know that there is a Baal’s Heart short? It’s a tiny book, holiday-themed, and follows the events in Fated.
For today and tomorrow it’s available for free at Amazon! Get your copy here.
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 :)
Just take a look at how gorgeous this is :) I commissioned the very talented Catherine Dair to draw the triad from Kestrel’s Talon and it turned out perfect.
The print is available in my Redbubble store too :) I ordered myself one to put on my wall.
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).
A Baal’s Heart holiday short, following the events in Fated: Blood and Redemption
Plagued by terrible dreams, Jon begins to distance himself from Baltsaros and Tom. Perhaps a little holiday cheer is just the thing to help the three of them find common ground again.
Happy release day to me! (woo!)
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.

Coming May 23rd to Amazon
Following the Prentish/Nemarri war, Kes is rejected by his homeland under the guise of religious purity laws. Though he’s spared execution, the proud Nemarri’s fate is only marginally more merciful than death when he is sold into sexual slavery at a prosperous pleasure house.
Despite his stoic endurance, Kes knows he’s reaching his breaking point, but there is nothing he can do—there is no path to freedom in the Holy Prentish Empire, only a lifetime of humiliating servitude.
That is, until a beautiful young slave and his formidable master approach Kes in the marketplace and make an astonishing offer to take him home with them. The only problem: “home” is the accursed Horthmont Castle from the scare-stories of Kes’s childhood.
Thrown into a world of living myth, powerful magic, and ancient gods, Kes learns the secrets kept hidden by Horthmont’s thick blackstone walls. There he discovers something he thought he’d never know again: hope for the future.
Kestrel’s Talon is a fantasy story about an empire obsessed with subjugation. Is it dark? Not really. It’s about trust, hope, and healing. Character driven, sweet at times, and a little kinky at others, it’s a tale I hope you’ll enjoy as much as I do. :)
