So I've been very busy the past few months finishing up a new series. If you enjoy dungeon crawling, dungeon core, RPG, sword and sorcery, dark fantasy, gamelit (although this is a book based on reality, not a game world), you'll probably like the new Dead Dungeon series.
"Series??" you scream to the heavens.
Yes, a whole series! Book One, Survive the Dungeon, is going to be released 9/3/2019. Book Two, Rebuild the Dungeon, will be released 9/17/2019, and Book Three, Unleash the Dungeon, will be released a few weeks later on 10/22/19. THREE books!
The first book is about a nameless man who can't remember his past. He finds himself trapped in a deadly dungeon with no way out...except down. He's going to have to delve deeper into the dungeon, conquering each level as he goes, in order to discover why he was captured. No easy task for a hearty group of adventures, so how can one man survive?
I won't talk about books two and three until close to their release dates, as I always worry the blurbs might spoil the previous book in some way. But here's the cover and the link to Survive the Dungeon. If you like action, creepy dungeons, magic, and monsters, then it'll be right up your alley.
Oh, and I'm back to working on Warrior of Souls Book Four. I'm looking for to release it at the end of this year or January/February of next year. Thank you to the fans who have patiently waited!
I haven't updated since JANUARY? Wow! I still exist. I'm even still writing! I'm working on a few projects right now. I'm continuing the Warrior of Souls Series (of course). I'm just trying to decide if it will be two more books or three for the current storyline. You know I like to keep things succinct and tight, and don't pad my books with a bunch of fluff!
Anyhow, I'm also working on a dungeon-based fantasy series. If you like dungeon crawlers, RPGs, litRPG, you'll probably like this (but this is reality-based, not game-based). Basically, a game is based off of something that is supposed to exist in a fictional reality, right? A person going on quests, delving into dungeons, etc. Hitpoints, mana, etc. are merely game representations of physical/mental attributes from the "real" fantasy world. So this series will be based on the "reality" that a game might be based off of. Basically it's a traditional fantasy where the characters will continue to grow stronger and "level up" as the series progresses.
I also want to point out two good book promotions going on right now:
This is for books that have been marked down to .99 for June.
This is for books in Kindle Unlimited (so if you are a member of KU, these are free).
As usual, contact me if you have any suggestions or questions.
Happy New Year! 2018 was a hell of a year, in many ways. I started a new job after working at the same company for 14 years. That was a MAJOR (and demanding) change. This resulted in less writing time. I think 2019 will be different, as I've settled in.
So, the Warrior of Souls series now has four books in it (counting Sword of Order as book 0). I plan on 2-3 more books in this series for the immediate future, wrapping up the war of the vampire lords story arc. I may return to the series later on, as there is room for a lot more stories, but there are a lot of books I want to write (just not enough time and energy to write them all while working a demanding full-time job). Superheroes, Fantasy, maybe some litRPG.
My next book is going to be a dark dungeon-crawling exploration book. A man with no memory finds himself locked in a treacherous dungeon, filled with monsters, traps, and other dangers. He starts out with nothing but a loincloth and must find a way to survive long enough to figure out the secret of the dungeon.
After that will be Warrior of Souls Book Four. We know that Book Three left the heroes in a bad predicament, and virtually no hope for victory. But the vampire lords will find out the fight is just getting started.
I just want to mention a contest for an Underworld Prize Pack that I'm helping to sponsor, along with several other authors. I've always felt like Underworld universe was a kindred spirit to the Warrior of Souls universe. Modern day wars between supernatural creatures and humans, gadgets, martial arts and other advanced weaponry. I just try and add a little more humor and levity to the story.

Book three of the Warrior of Souls series, Curse of Blood, is now live. It picks up after the startling revelations of book two, where the enemy vampire lords are found to be more of a threat than first realized. In book three, the heroes learn they've all underestimated the danger by a large margin.
Sverre still struggles with control of his werewolf form. Jessica attempts to fill the shoes of her father and grandfather, while preparing her troops for the war to come.
October! One of my favorite months of the year. Cool weather and Halloween. Horror movies all month, and TV shows play their special Halloween episodes. Alright, enough of the jibber jabber. It's time to get to business.
I said I'd have book three of the Warrior of Souls series done in September. Then I said October...now I say...maybe October? It's in the editing stage now, so once I get it back, I can make my edits then send to the proofreader.
One holdup: I intend on putting the series back in Kindle Unlimited, which means it will no long be available on Kobo, B&N, iTunes, etc. So I want to release book three into Kindle Unlimited when the other two books are in there. But it takes time for the book to come down from the other online bookstores. I'm still aiming for an end of October release, but it might roll into November. In another week or two, I'll post the cover as a teaser.
Book three picks up right after the end of book two. The heroes must split up. Jessica and Malcolm return to the Order to figure out how to stop the war, while Sverre, Izzy and Angel return to Xibalba to determine how Sverre can regain control of his "alter ego". However, while the heroes are figuring things out, one of the vampire lords puts his plans into motion and the world will be changed forever.
First, the news. I'm hard at work on the third book (fourth if you count Sword of Order) in the Warrior of Souls series. I still expect to release in October, probably toward the end of the month. I ended up having to go out of town for work this month, so that might eat into my schedule, but I'm determined to finish it, because that's what I promised!
I'm sponsoring a giveaway with several other authors for a Deadpool prize pack. Now, I've been a Deadpool fan, even before the movies were out, so I think this is a pretty cool giveaway. Click the image below if you're interested in joining for a chance to win.
Things goin' on.
