What’s New for 2020?

Hello, everyone.  It’s been many, many years since our last post.  Lots of things have happened and looking back we should have handled things better than we did.  None of those negative things are important to you, the reader, as the only thing that probably matters to you is that there hasn’t been a new story released in a long time and that we’re terrible at respecting release dates.  This is a fair criticism.  There’s really no excuse, either.  This year we will work hard to be better and to get stories out in a timely manner.

Currently, Skullforge: The Destined One Chapter 3 is in the editing phase.  The story has been written and all that’s left is editing and clean up.  Skullforge: The Destined One Chapter 4 is being written as we speak.  Our goal is to have both out in the next few months.  Blood City Chronicles: To Live in Fear has been finished for years.  The biggest issue has been the cost of getting it edited.  It’s a much longer story, so the costs involved are a lot higher.  Regardless, we’ll have it released this year for sure.

I also have planned to release a series of short stories this year in blog form.  Just trying to keep my writing wits sharp and with so many ideas flowing around in my head, it’ll be good to write them down into something coherent.  We just need to figure out a good way to facilitate it on this website as the main blogroll is used for news mostly.  I hope you guys enjoy them.

I’d like to thank those who have written to me asking about when the stories will continue over the years.  It was never our intention to let things languish for so long.  However, life just kinda gets in the way and time moves ever so swiftly that we sometimes lose track of it.  This year should end up being our most productive year yet.  Look forward to the next Skullforge chapter real soon.  Take care and let’s have a great year together!



Skullforge: The Destined One Chapter One Released

Blood City Chronicles: To Live in Fear Cover Art

It’s taken a bit more time than I figured to get the new story out, but it looks like everything will go live next month. I’m looking forward to finally seeing how everyone likes the second chapter in the series. In the meantime, here’s a look at the cover art.


Skullforge: The Destined One Releasing in February

We are proud to announce that the prequel story to Skullforge: The Hunt will be releasing in February. The series named “Skullforge: The Destined One” will look into the events that lead into the game and will give players and fantasy readers alike a chance to connect with Desi Cornerstone before the game is released in 2015.

Skullforge: The Destined One, written by James Garvin, will span ten chapters with a new chapter released every month until November. Each chapter in the saga will be available for purchase for 99 cents on various online bookstores.

Look for more information in the coming weeks.

Blood City Chronicles: To Live in Fear Releasing in December

It took a long time, but the next chapter in the Blood City Chronicles series is ready to be released. There are a few more edits that need to be done, but that shouldn’t affect the timing of the release unless something serious happens in the process. Pricing is still being decided, but the episode should be reasonably priced.

Blood City Chronicles: To Live in Fear follows a new protagonist named Michael Steel on a case he may regret taking as he navigates the deadly Chicago of 2145. Who is Michael Steel? Find out in December! Hope you guys enjoy it.

Re-edit for Blood City Chronicles: The Black Petal Incoming

My general feeling about releasing content is that once it’s out, then it shouldn’t be changed.  There are a lot of reasons for this, the largest being that fans get attached to even the smallest details and changing them can upset the balance in some way.  However, I am making an exception with The Black Petal.  When it was released, I didn’t send it out for a final edit.  I thought at the time that releasing the story was more important, but I have later come to realize that this was a mistake.  It should be the job of the writer to make sure the best possible product is released even if said content is free.  Being free shouldn’t be an excuse to release something less than it should be.

For this reason, I’m sending BCC: The Black Petal back to the professional editor to correct some mistakes that I missed while doing my original edit.  What this will mean is that some things will change.  Some scenes will be a little different than they were, but the overall quality should be a bit better.  I am not doing a rewrite.  Like I said earlier, I don’t believe in changing the material on that level, but grammatical changes are fine.  The changes will allow us to feel better about promoting the series properly.

Later this year, the next installment of Blood City Chronicles will be released, and it will go through the process correctly.  If all goes well, To Live in Fear should hit store shelves late spring.  I appreciate everyone who commented about the first story, and I hope you enjoy the updated story as well as the second installment in the series.


Blood City Chronicles: To Live in Fear Due Out Later this Year

The next episode in the Blood City Chronicles saga will be released later this year, possibly summer.  Blood City Chronicles: To Live in Fear will focus on private detective Michael Steele and his partner Derek Garvin as they delve into the shady underbelly of the corporate world.  Look for more information in the coming months.

BCC: The Black Petal Officially Released on the Apple Bookstore

As of this morning, Blood City Chronicles: The Black Petal has been officially released on the iBookstore.  So if you didn’t pick up a copy on the Smashwords website, you can do so from the comfort of your iPad or iPhone.  Other avenues for picking up a copy should be available in the coming weeks.  The eBook is free, so feel free to enter into the world of Blood City.

The Black Petal Submitted for Release

It took a little longer than I expected, and I’m basically okay with the results, but my first full-length story has been submitted to be included in various ebook stores.  If all goes well, The Black Petal will be available on Amazon, Sony’s bookstore, Barnes and Noble, and Apple’s iBook store.  We will have an ePub version of the story available on this site once it has been released on the Apple store.

In the meantime, anyone who would like to get the book early can read it on the Smashwords site.

I hope everyone enjoys the story, and feel free to let me know what you think.

Website Launched…Finally.

With the release of my first story in a couple of weeks, I had been trying to get this site up, but the laziness is strong.  Nevertheless, here it is.

This site will be where all information that relates to publishing fiction will be posted.  I will use it as kind of my personal blog, and it’ll be a good way to give some insight on my stories as well as making new announcements of new products in the future.

If you are going to make comments, the only rule I have is to keep things civil and profanity free.  As long as those rules are followed, there will be no troubles.

I hope everyone is able to enjoy the stories, but for those who don’t, well…I tried.  Have fun, everyone.
