Get Signed Novels for Gifts and Avoid some of Black Friday and Beyond

Readers and Gift Givers, consider giving signed copies of my novels (Flank Hawk and Blood Sword) and/or my short story collection (Genre Shotgun) to family and friends who enjoy reading.

Below are descriptions and contact information to find out more but, in short, if you let me know I can send you copies of my novels, signed as desired, or I can mail them directly to the gift recipient, labeled and gift wrapped, if desired.  I can also send signed book plates to you for copies of my works obtained on your own.

What happens when fire-breathing dragons battle Stukas for aerial supremacy over a battlefield? Can an earth wizard’s magic defeat a panzer? Krish, a farmhand turned mercenary, witnesses this and much more as he confronts the Necromancer King’s new war machines resurrected from before the First Civilization's fall. Worse yet, a wounded prince tasks Krish to find the fabled Colonel of the West and barter the royal family’s malevolent Blood Sword for a weapon to thwart the Necromancer King’s victory.

Flank Hawk is set in the distant future where magic exists and brutish ogres are more than a child’s nightmare.

The Necromancer King has been defeated and his surviving forces are in retreat. But a new threat marches against the Kingdom of Keesee, promising destruction.

Scouting along the western frontier, Flank Hawk and Grand Wizard Seelain discover an army massing, the army of Fendra Jolain, Goddess of Healing. Weakened and battle weary, Keesee and her allies cannot withstand Fendra Jolain’s powerful army of men and beasts arrayed against them.

One hope of survival remains: Retrieve the Blood Sword from the immortal Colonel of the West and bring its sinister strength to the battlefield.

To accomplish this end, Flank Hawk accompanies Grand Wizard Seelain as she leads a mission across land and sea. Together they find new allies while confronting new foes, learning that the war ravaging Keesee is part of a larger struggle whose roots stretch back to the First Civilization’s Fall.

If the Blood Sword can be obtained, it must be done quickly. Every day means more death for the defenders of Keesee. Every day is one day closer to utter defeat. Even if Flank Hawk can deliver the Blood Sword to King Tobias’s hand in time, will the malevolent blade’s magic be enough?
This collection contains all of my published short stories to date. It includes tales of science fiction, horror, mystery, suspense and inspiration. “The Scene of My Second Murder” relays the tale of a wretched man seeking forgiveness while confronting revenge from beyond the grave. “Tethered in Purgatory” tells of a trapped soul’s struggle to escape its cryogenically frozen body and reach heaven. In “Drug Dogs” a falsely accused student learns you can’t always trust those who should be trusted. And those are just a few.

Remorse and redemption, revenge and revelation, cowardice and courage—all are contained within this fast-paced and riveting collection
In addition to print, they're available in ebook formats for virtually any device, and Flank Hawk is available as an audiobook.

  1. Great idea. Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Thanks, Angie! Only two takers (one for two books) thus far. Maybe after Black Friday I'll repost/remind those still seeking to give gifts.

      Hope you had a wonderful and memorable Thanksgiving as well!
