I'm launching Black Magic today, and since this is my first book, I'm scaling prices up to give people a low-barrier way to try it out without paying full price. I don't anticipate this book going on sale again any time in the near future, so today's the day to get it at 99¢.

Find it exclusively on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HIV1WJG

A limited run of paperbacks will be made available sometime towards the end of the week, however they will not be priced to move. This is your best chance to read Black Magic before the price hits normal retail.

The Sword And The Smile

This weekend I had the awesome experience of spending a bit of time taking pictures with some folks from Something for Nothing Theater, whose production of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale you should totally go see in June if you're in Austin. While I was there I had the unusual experience of someone asking me about my sword pictures without me bringing it up first. I'm so used to having to explain to people what I'm doing, and that as far as I know I'm not a crazy person, that having someone bring it up first and express interest in being in a sword picture was very exciting. The morning was overcast, and we just managed to beat the rain. I saw this nice wall across the street, which it seemed like an excellent backdrop, and the smile was all Chelsea's.

Time for another Pink Room Sessions show live on Concert Window! I'll be playing a show live on Sunday, March 27 at 9 PM EST. The theme for this show will be 80s!

I have a few 80s sounding originals, but also I've got quite a list of 80s covers I'll be mixing on the Launchpad and singing live, including a few that I've never done before

I'll also have a special announcement to make during the show! So you don't want to miss this!

Also, since I'll be doing mostly covers during this show, I can't upload the full show for future viewing on my YouTube channel. So if you want to hear my cover songs, make sure you watch the live show!

Hope to see you there!

Hey everyone! :D

It's that time again: another Pink Room Sessions show, live on Concert Window!

I will be doing a special matinee show on Sunday, March 13, 2016 at 4 PM EST. Last time, I did an all-originals Launchpad show. This time, it'll be all piano and all French songs! Expect to hear not only originals (j'adore composer des chansons en français!), but also covers of some of my favorite French tunes! I'm super excited! You know me; I love to sing in foreign languages!

I hope that you can tune in! If not, I will be recording this show using OBS (the program I use to broadcast to Concert Window) and then uploading the show to my YouTube channel for viewing later (without the cover songs for copyright reasons)!

So if you want to hear me sing the likes of Edith Piaf, Francis Cabrel, or Jean-Jacques Goldman (in other words, French songs from French people!), make sure you tune in live.

As always, the show is free to watch and can be viewed here when it's time:

A dimanche prochain! (See you next Sunday!)

One day in and we're at... $10.
Not terrible, given my limited skills at marketing.

Hello everyone and welcome to my first Virtual Mini-Tour! :)

This weekend, I will be playing a series of live shows on Concert Window. 3 shows across three days. (Hence this event beginning at showtime on the first day and ending after the third concert on Sunday! This keeps me from doing separate events!)

Starting at 9 PM EST on Friday, June 10, Saturday, June 11, and Sunday, June 12, I will be playing one-hour shows live on Concert Window! It'll be a mixture of piano and electronic tunes, plus a few unexpected covers and even some new tunes!

As always, the shows are free to watch! I do hope you can tune in for a song or two!

Note: These shows will be recorded for later viewing to be uploaded to my YouTube channel, minus any cover songs I do. So if you want to hear my covers, make sure to tune in to the live show (note: I usually do my cover songs toward the end of the show. :D )

Lastly, if you're getting a notification for this event and you don't wish to be notified of future events, let me know!

I hope to see you there! :D
June Virtual Mini-Tour!

Time for another Pink Room Sessions!

On Sunday, April 10 at 4 PM EST, I will be singing and playing live on Concert Window. This Pink Room Sessions show will be all about b-sides.

I'm a prolific songwriter, so when it comes to making an album, I have about two dozen songs to start with. From there, I whittle it down to the good stuff. Which leaves me with a lot of extra songs that are still awesome but which don't quite fit the album for whatever reason.

And this show will be all about those leftover songs! Some I've played before, others I never have. So you'll definitely want to tune in to hear those rare tunes!

This is an early show, so I'll be on at 4 PM EST. As always, the show is free to watch, but if you are unable to make the show, no worries. Since I will be playing all originals and no cover songs, I can upload the recorded show for later viewing to my YouTube channel!

I hope to see you there for a song or two!

Should be a good show. If you don't speak French, tune in for some nice background music.

Story
Tagline
I write legends of things unseen in recorded time.
Introduction
A long time ago someone called me "eclectic". That's probably the best way to think about me.

Writing Credits
  • The Staff of Moses, an adventure novel set in the modern cities and ancient sands of Egypt.
  • The Eye of Odin, is the sequel to The Staff of Moses. When Oliver Lucas encounters a rival treasure hunter, he is drawn into an international conspiracy that threatens to destroy him. Packed with ancient curses, thrilling action, and the wrathful gods of the old Norse world, The Eye of Odin takes Oliver to places he had never dared to imagine. 
  • Burning in the Void is a scifi novel set aboard an interstellar colony ship which has been stranded between the stars for 300 years. 
  • Beasts of Dream is a short story about a woman who is haunted by monster that has the power to escape from her dreams.
  • The Dungeon Keeper's Wife is a short story about a young girl who meets her mother for the first time when she is trapped in the deepest cell of a dungeon.
  • Hunger for Fire, a short story loosely based on my own experiences camping in remote places, which introduces a series of modern fairy tales I call the Nearworld series. 
  • Gravity, a short story about a woman named Asha who is stranded in space, completely alone, after a solar flare damages the space station in which she lives and the other crew meet a series of violent deaths. This is an early entry in a fantasy series that I am developing.

Great menu of both vegetarian friendly and classic sushi, as well as sides. The $9.99 lunch special (all you can eat, just don't order more than you can eat) is an amazing deal. Highly recommended.
