Steampunk Books and Other Updates

This is a quick update to let everyone know that The Ghost Machine and Clockmaker are currently unavailable, as I’ve made the decision to end my contract with the publisher. I debated letting this moment pass quietly without an announcement, but I think it’s important on social media to post both the good and theContinue reading “Steampunk Books and Other Updates”

Haven’t felt a chill run up your spine in a while? Missing the ghostly whispers in your ear? Is there a lack of menacing metal automatons in your life? The Ghost Machine hasn’t been for sale over the past few months as Silver Empire Publishing prepared it for a grand re-release, and release day isContinue reading “The Ghost Machine is live! (Again)”

Shocked by The Ghost Machine Kickstarter

So my publisher set up a Kickstarter to fund the relaunch of The Ghost Machine and Clockmaker earlier this week. I was originally intending to write this post to ask everyone to consider helping it reach its goal of five hundred dollars, which I was worried it would never manage, but… well… It met itsContinue reading “Shocked by The Ghost Machine Kickstarter”

Creating a Book Cover: The Ghost Machine

A good cover alone doesn’t make a good book. I’d wager there are plenty of books out there with gorgeous covers that were quickly forgotten because the story inside didn’t live up to the captivating image on the front. But on the flip side, amazing stories go overlooked everyday because the cover is ugly orContinue reading “Creating a Book Cover: The Ghost Machine”

Book Review: Cold Stone & Ivy

Free Short Story: The Braden Banshee

You know the feeling of finishing a good book? You loved it but end up depressed that it’s over, longing to spend more time with the characters. If I did my job right, that’s the feeling you got at the end of The Ghost Machine. And do I have good news for you. The BradenContinue reading “Free Short Story: The Braden Banshee”

Announcing the Secret Stairs Anthology

You mustn’t talk about the stairs. There they stand, surrounded by nothing but forest, pristine as the day they were built. No sign remains of any other structure around them, no ruins of long forgotten buildings. They look… wrong. They feel wrong. Bad things happen if you get too close. Horrible things. You must never,Continue reading “Announcing the Secret Stairs Anthology”
