Book 3 of the Collins Family trilogy. Amy’s ascension to leadership of the Collins family starts a revolution in the McCulloughs, and Elliot McCullough seeks a truce to mend the centuries-old rift between clans. Even the paranoid magi are coming to regard her as a worthy ally. But when the daemon Lucien comes courting and Amy spurns him, it begins a tragic downward spiral for the halflings.

I’m really happy to have this book out on time, but I’m afraid there’s also some bad news to deliver. Visitors to my web site will notice that some of the story archive and free PDFs are missing. The missing files are all the stories which have been converted into ebooks, and later today, folks will notice the same stories missing from my blog archives.
As I raise prices, it doesn’t make sense to have free files on my site, so I’m taking them down. There are still free stories to read, and there are still a few free PDF files left. But now once you work through the shorter pile of free samples, you’ll have to pay for the ebooks. I’m sorry to go all mercenary on you like this, but the “try before you buy” model just isn’t panning out for me.
In more positive writing news, I seem to be on schedule to release my next ebook, Confessions of a Zombie Lover, which is a sequel to Zombie Punter. I’m handling cover duties, so they’ll be a bit simplistic, something in the spirit of the Zombie Punter cover art style. The story inside follows G as he joins the Army and recruits another two “kids,” Reggie and Cal. His research yields smarter and emotionally stable zombies, but G begins to doubt he can make the undead smart enough to avoid them becoming second-class citizens. So in addition to subtle themes of sexuality and tolerance explored in the first book, this second volume also looks at classism and slavery. It’s a lot to pack into a novella, but I think readers of G’s first story will find this second book just as entertaining.
After G’s story is out, I have to worry about how to pimp my upcoming releases with Belfire Press, and with Skullvines/KHP. It should be an interesting year for my readers. I’ll be bringing y’all zombies, sex dolls, ninjas octopuses versus pirate ants, magi, werecats versus witches, a werekin porno, more vampire novelettes, more shapeshifters and yes, more musical numbers!
Stick with me, and things are bound to get interesting. (*^_^)
