Announcing: Hardcover Copies!

Following the successful production of our first hardcover proof copy (see below!) I can happily report that the hardcover edition of Spiralchain: Gatemaker is now available!

Currently the book is available only from, and you can get there by clicking the BUY SPIRALCHAIN link at the top of this page. In the next few weeks the hardcover will also be made available through, but at a much higher price–Lulu is by far your best bet. If I’m being entirely honest, here’s the deal: The hardcover at Lulu is 10 dollars cheaper and I make five times as much from its sales as I do the hardcovers from Amazon. So Lulu is cheaper for you AND better for me. But hey–you do what you have to do!

Thank you so much for your interest in and support of Gatemaker. Please, please, please–spread the word. Tell your friends  Repost things on Facebook, Twitter, or wherever you hang out online. Write reviews on whatever site you purchase the book from. Only by working together do we get the chance to grow a fandom for the book!

A Note About Signed Copies…

I know that there are some folks who have expressed interest in autographed copies of the book (why, I don’t know–if you’ve ever seen my signature you know it isn’t very impressive). During the months of January and February, I am offering to do signed books. To order a signed book, you will need to click one of the two buttons below. This will take you to Paypal. Folks in the US should click the top button–your fee for the book plus shipping will be $37.50USD. Individuals outside of the US should click the bottom button–your fee for the book plus shipping will be $42.50USD.

If you have any special requests for the signature/inscription, please contact me (by clicking the About.Me link on the right side of this webpage and choosing “email”  when you get there) after submitting payment. There will be a slow turnaround on this process–the books will need to be printed, shipped to me, signed, then shipped to you, so I would expect it to take at least 3 weeks. If, after all that, it still sounds like something you want to do–click away. Remember: UNITED STATES click the TOP, WORLDWIDE click the BOTTOM!

Status Update

Gatemaker is officially on the move!

Gatemaker is available in eBook form from both Amazon and Lulu (links in the “Buy SPIRALCHAIN” link at top of this page).

eBook release for the Nook and for the iBookstore are forthcoming (but if you use those associated devices, the file on sale at Lulu will work on your device).

Hardcover is in the proofing process and is currently at the printers.

The first Act of the second book in the series, Mindshaper, is rough drafted and being edited.

This website is still being constructed, but it’s coming along nicely.

Special Event: In February, this website will begin hosting bonus features for Spiralchain, including character background information that may not ever appear in the series and new short-short stories, called Taleflashes, that take place between books.

The Spiral of Worlds is breaking.

For generations, the Wyr of Onus saw, in their visions, the corrosion of the Chain that binds all worlds together. They saw the coming of the Rot and the beginning of the dark times. Then, one by one, their vision was snuffed out–they died, leaving none to see the vagaries of the future.
