I’m happy to announce the release of a new ebook, entitled Church Triumphant: 25 Men and Women who Gave Their Lives to Christ. This new ebook is available for preorder from Amazon, Barnes and Noble , Kobo, and iTunes. Church Triumphant will be officially released on April 5th. Easter Sunday.
I currently working on a new Benny Cahill mystery for an Amazon bundle being put together by a number of fellow writers. I don’t want to give away too much information, but it titled All that Glitters is Not Gold and it involves Cahill in a museum. Keep your eyes out for information about the bundle. Until then, enjoy this new cover.
On top everything else, I am working on a mystery novel collaboration project with two fellow writers. All I can say is that it is a noir story set in modern-day. We’re still in the early stage of the project.
Up until now, this blog has mainly been a place for me to tell you about my new books and projects. Starting next week, I will start writing posts about my favorite Old Time Radio and TV programs. If you like my stories, you’ll enjoy these great shows from the Golden Age of radio.
I just got a notification that Smashwords does not publish previews, they only publish complete stories. Since that was the case, I have unpublished Fire in the Night, thus it will not be available on iTunes, Barnes and Nobles, and more. Don’t worry though, I created a epub and pdf version of Fire in the Night. So come and get Fire in the Night PDF or epub here. Sorry for any inconvenience. The previous post has been corrected.
I am proud to announce the release of another ebook. This ebook, entitled Fire in the Night, is a preview of an upcoming novel to be released Fall 2015. My upcoming novel, Rumors of War, will by my first finished novel, so I hope you look forward to it.
Here is the summary from Fire in the Night:
In the early 1860s, European headlines are filled with stories of attacks on the merchant vessels of many countries. Europe is filled with suspicion and paranoia. Is it pirates or a hostile power? Wealthy American playboy Tom Cavanaugh smells trouble and those who look for trouble, always get more than they bargain for.
I published my latest ebook about a week ago. I’ve already begun planning my next ebook. It will be at least a novella in length. It will be a Ocean’s Eleven-style steam punk thriller. Here is the plot:
In the late 1860s, ships in the English Channel are attacked at sunk by a mysterious ship in the night. Several navies have sent ships to investigate, but the found nothing. Most people are convinced the French are behind it. However, a mysterious American adventurer, named Tom Cavanaugh, isn’t so sure and he’s putting together a team to investigate.
First, I’m going to publish a short prequel entitled Fire in the Night so readers can get a taste of things to come. The full novel will follow. I’m not setting a deadline until the book is 90%+ done. I’ve come up with the chapter titles, so I’m good to go. I hope.
Stay tuned for further announcements.
After several months of hard work, I’m proud to announce that the newest stories of Benny Cahill, PI are now available on Smashwords. Trouble is My Client contains FOUR new and never before seen Benny Cahill stories. These stories (Where There’s a Will, Now Hear This, Reach for It, and To the Moon) recall the days of Old Time Radio and the detective stories that formed a generation of Americans. From the Smashwords page:
Benny Cahill is back. After getting involved in a crooked horse race in Don’t Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth, the cynical and wise-cracking private detective returns in four never before published mysteries.
