Sci-Fi and Fantasy Bargains

I hope you are enjoying the summer weather. In Maine, it has been a great spring and early summer. Hopefully the weather continues to behave. As the saying goes about Maine: if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute. Unfortunately, the opposite is true as well.

I continue to collaborate with other authors and have brought to you a curated list of fun fantasy and sci-fi reads: Fantasy and SciFi Bargains. I admittedly have been slacking on reviewing books. I will be picking one out of this list to review for my next issue.


Thank you! .

Conduit: The Surge

Over the past month I’ve been working hard on my upcoming release of Conduit: The Surge on Amazon Vella. This will be a new venture for me and I hope you will follow me as I post my book in serial form.

I also updated my website design. It had become a bit clunky of the years and was in need of a facelift. Check it out here and let me know what you think.

New Facebook Group

Lastly, I am trying to get a new Facebook group off the ground for dark science fiction and fantasy. I found that there are a lot of standard fantasy and sci-fi groups, but nothing related to darker stories in the genres. This group is dedicated to connecting authors and readers to discuss books and anything related to writing. I hope for it to be a fun place to connect and share great reads.

Conduit: The Beginning

Available now on Amazon in both ebook and print!

The Choice

Available in all formats on Amazon. Soon to add availability in stores outside of Amazon including Barnes & Noble.

Future Plans

New Young Adult Series: Planning.

Beautiful People Revisions: In Queue.

I have established a new group on Facebook for readers and authors who enjoy reading and/or writing dark Sci-Fi and Fantasy.

This group is dedicated to discuss great books and for connecting authors and readers. I hope this to be a fun and engaging group with little promotion. There’s nothing worse than a bunch of spammy ads which I will work to keep limited.

Let’s connect and start some fun discussions about books we love that are on the darker side!
