The third and final book in my “Cochrane’s Company” trilogy, “The Pride of the Damned“, is now available on Amazon.   It’s the climax of everything that has gone before.  The blurb reads: The shadow war started as a simple contract to defend a system against asteroid thieves. The harder Andrew Cochrane and Hawkwood Security fought, the worse things became. Now they find themselves embroiled in an interstellar war with an entire mafia! Worse yet, the proceedings are so profitable – not to mention bloody – that they’ve attracted the attention of some of the worst criminal organizations in the

“King’s Champion”

I’m very pleased to announce that my first fantasy novel, “King’s Champion“, is now available for sale.  It’s currently in Kindle e-book format, and a print edition is well advanced, awaiting only the arrival of the proof copy before I release it for sale.  The dead tree edition should be available within two weeks.   Regular readers will recall that, late last year, I asked you to choose which of two fantasy novels I would write.  You did so, voting with your comments and e-mails after reading excerpts from early drafts of both books.  Last month, I published another excerpt

“Forged In Blood”

Last year I mentioned that Michael Z. Williamson, friend to Miss D. and myself in both meatspace and cyberspace, well-known author, and all-around good guy, was preparing a volume of stories about Kendra Pacelli’s sword, made famous in his breakout novel, ‘Freehold‘.  Mike was kind enough to invite me to be one of the contributors. I’m very glad to be able to tell you that the new volume, ‘Forged in Blood‘, is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com.  It’ll be published by Baen Books in September.  The initial edition will be in hardcover, with e-book and paperback to follow.
