My new book has just hit the digital shelves, a short story called Ignite.  It's a terse political thriller with a little romance thrown into the mix.

Download it for FREE from Smashwords, in a wide variety of formats (mobi, epub, txt, pdf, and more) at:

Wherein I go ballistic on a phrase that doesn't mean what you think it means.
Every time a writer uses the phrase "point blank range" to mean "extremely close range", God clubs a baby seal to death with a physics book. Just because most of the English-speaking media uses the phrase incorrectly does not...

Apparently, furries have been roleplaying in my book's review section on B&N.com, entirely missing the political point of Foo Foo.

BAD DOG.

You know you want to read my FREE short story.

An unlikely couple finds love in the vortex of violent social upheaval. Can their relationship survive their differing political stances? A terse political thriller, infused with an uncompromising romance.

A little snippet from Fallen Rise.  I love the idea of culture shock as these two men arrive in a strange city.

“If the worst comes, we can go over the city wall at night, make our way westward toward Wyanis, and sail home from there.”
“That’s not the worst,” Volche said.
Aezoch quirked up an eyebrow at his captain. “What would be, then?”
“We end up in a funeral pyre with the sickness.”
“That’s not going to happen,” Aezoch said, shaking his head.
“And how do you know that?”
“They don’t use pyres. Their dead are carried out to sea, weighted, and dumped.”
“How disgusting,” Volche said.

A newly posted blog-type-thing.
