Author Interview

I'm continuing my sort of blog tour for The Consequence of High Caliber with an interview over at The Novel Approach (and what an awesome name for a book blog) this week, along with a giveaway of Chance Assassin: A Story of Love, Luck, and Murder.

You can still enter to win The Consequence of High Caliber at Attention is Arbitrary  as well as pick up a copy of any of the three books at

Interview with an Assassin

The always amazing LisaT at the Attention is Arbitrary blog was nice enough to help me promote my new book, The Consequence of High Caliber, and instead of interviewing boring ol' me we had some fun with it and she got to interview Miko, aka The Mako Shark.

The book will be out on Saturday the 13th, a perfectly unlucky number for Miko, and you can read his interview here as well as enter to win an ebook.  Happy reading to everyone, and good luck!

The Consequence of High Caliber

As December speeds by I find myself remembering to do all the little things I've forgotten (don't even get me started on the status of my Christmas shopping list) but here it is.  In a week (12/13/2014 to be specific) I'll be releasing my latest book, The Consequence of High Caliber.  I haven't talked much about it yet, mostly because the end of this year has been barreling towards me at an alarming rate, but to carry on tradition I wanted to do my cover release along with the high-quality (read: low-quality) drawing I made to show my far more artistically inclined photographer what I was looking for.

Ta Da!

Covers are a huge part of the publishing process for self-pubs.  We have the freedom to do what we want instead of a publisher making that decision for us, but we also have to go at it with a sense of adventure and in my case, a handful of friends.  This was a really fun experience for me since I got to be part of the splattering of fake blood (mixed up in my very own kitchen) and a really confusing experience for the employees of one hardware store and one lumber store who had to deal with me trying to explain that I needed rough plywood for an "art project."  I didn't mention the part about splattering it with blood.

As promised, here is the original drawing by yours truly.

Things to Come

Life has been a little hectic recently, but I have a new book coming out pretty soon so I suppose I should start talking about it.  The Consequence of High Caliber is a spinoff of the Chance Assassin series, but you don't necessarily need to be familiar with the other books to read (and hopefully enjoy) it.  It's about Miko, a sort of consummate underdog who tries very hard but never really gets things right.  He's a product of unfortunate circumstances, and his story is told in alternating periods of past and present.  Like Chance Assassin it's about (you guessed it) assassins, and it is M/M.

Here is the official blurb, and there will be a release date and cover reveal soon.

Miko is a devoted son.  An irresponsible brother.  A protective friend.  An anonymous lover.  An assassin, nicknamed the Mako Shark after the sheer violence of his hits.  Miko is deadly.  And damaged.

Miko is in love.

As far as the rest of the craziness, I was in a bit of a slump working on book three of Chance Assassin, but I just finished the first draft and things are getting exciting for those two while they return to work where they belong.

That's it for now.  Until next time, I'm back to the land of murder and mayhem.
