New Short Story: Hearthkeeper

Thanks to the generous contributors to the Mindshaper Kickstarter, a new story was commissioned in the Spiralchain, a short tale set between Gatemaker and Mindshaper that I call Hearthkeeper. The story is available for download by clicking on the Downloads tab at the top of the page (or here). I hope you enjoy it!

In other news, if you have not checked the Buy Spiralchain Books link above lately, you may not have noticed that the hardcover of Gatemaker is now available at and, while the eBook for Mindshaper is showing up in just about every major eBook shop online. Hardcover availability for Mindshaper should be announced very soon!


Mindshaper is Born!

The second novel in the Spiralchain, Mindshaper, is now available in eBook form! Check out the Buy Spiralchain Books link at the top of the page to find out how to get your own copy!

The story of Mindshaper is really the story of a number of women on the worlds of Core, Rettik, and Onus. It carries forward the stories of the characters from Gatemaker, of course, but the book really digs deeper into Tatyana, Becky, Jara, and several new characters. Pieces of the puzzle that surrounds the Purpose of the Children of the Line continue to fall into place even as the threat of the Obliviates grows at an alarming rate.

I am very proud of the stories told in Mindshaper, and I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. Please continue to spread the word and post reviews of both Gatemaker and Mindshaper as we grow awareness for the Spiralchain series… we still have a long haul ahead of us to reach the big finish in Book 8!

(But I am pleased to announce that Book 3 is about 1/6 done so far!)
