Ugh. I swear, I'm to the point of handing out blocks of cheese for all the whine I get at work some days.

Helping the volume level...
 
Okay, my experiment is done, so I can finally share this: The Eye of God is available for free for a couple of days. This is my debut novel... and being honest, it's the weakest of the lot, but holds a near and dear place in my heart.

I'll be working on book 2 of the series, Royal Slaves, at the beginning of 2016, so the second of the trilogy will be coming!! (I have a bucket list of other projects I need to get finished first!)

So, if you want a free read, go grab a copy. :)

Here are some triggers and warnings for those who may not want surprise punches to the gut.

This story deals with a culture based on certain historical eras; one involved widespread slavery, some of the crueler practices of the Roman empire, and it is a strongly Patriarchal society.

Women have drawn the exceptionally short end of the stick, and are conditioned to accept this as their role in life. I give them nothing but a chance to change things for themselves in the series.

If you can't handle reading about that sort of thing, turn away now. I wanted to tell a story about a society where those trapped in the lowest rung of the ladder have to fight their way through their circumstances. That means the strong women are hidden, buried, and persecuted--but have a chance to change things as the series progresses.

I didn't want to hand them anything; that's not true to the culture they are fighting against--and the freedoms they are fighting for. I was not willing to belittle the horrors of what they're facing to sugar coat it for those who want to read strong women from the gate.

These women aren't strong yet.

The story isn't about strong women.

It's a story about slaves and strong women finding the courage to become strong... and starting them out strong accomplishes nothing.

Strength is a journey and a destination, and that's what I'm chasing after in this trilogy.

If you don't like that, this probably isn't the book for you. 

About the Book ~

Blaise tries to act like a good human, but someone always manages to ruin things for him. When the Emperor’s most powerful weapon is stolen and its human vessel is kidnapped from the Arena, Blaise must choose between meddling in the affairs of mortals or remaining true to his duty. 

To make matters worse, the Archbishop has betrayed the church and God by giving the Emperor the second piece of the Triad, the Heart of God. Should Blaise stand idle and leave the mortals to their own devices, the people of Erelith won’t just lose their lives: Their souls will be destroyed by a power that was never meant to fall into mortal hands. 

If Blaise can find the Eye of God, he might be able to save the humans from themselves. Unfortunately, his only hope for success lies in the hands of a slave who wants nothing more than to die. If Blaise can’t save Terin and enlist his help, the Erelith Empire will fall.

Great arm and talent! Just seems to remind me of Jeff George with the mental attitude with teams.

Looking for some original comic art? I've bought a few. Would make a cool gift too.
 
it's that time of year!
  Just look for the OWN THIS ORIGINAL ART button under any SQUIRRELOSOPHY panel. If the button is there, the artwork is available for purchase! It's as easy as that! Happy April Fools Day!

I've only had the Warbeard so far, but very tasty! Not super hoppy like so many microbrews are lately. I hope to try more soon!

I know, it sounds really odd. But it's a blast! Even if it's your first time going out, it doesn't take long to pick up what's going on. The gals are all super friendly, great crowd, really fun atmosphere!
