New Paperbacks – New Paperback Prices
I’ve recently been informed that paperback pricing will change by June 20th, 2023. I have removed the prices on the book pages of this site. If you follow the links, you will see the latest pricing on the retailers’ websites. As soon as things settle, I will put the new prices here on this site.
On a related note, I am in the process of revision/edit/review of all my current books. The first was HIs Robot Girlfriend and is complete. In addition to making the best ebook edition possible, I will make sure that there is a paperback edition for each book. Those books that are free will not have paperback editions. People aren’t purchasing a paperback when they can get a free download, so it makes sense to put the effort elsewhere.
As each book is update and out in paperback, it will be announce here. Thanks, and thanks for your support.

Brechalon – Chapter 8 Excerpt
Zurfina smiled as the dead grey tentacles caressed her.
“Now I will leave and now I will lay my vengeance on this stony prison and this little kingdom and this world!” She raised her arms and began her final incantation. “Uuthanum…”
At that moment a thin streak of light entered from the small window high up on the wall. It was so tiny that it might have gone totally unnoticed, had it not stuck the first and largest of the grey arms moving around the cell. But the tiny sliver of sunlight burned through the tentacle like a hot ember through a slice of bread. The great tentacle jerked and thrashed about the room and the other appendages did too, one of them striking the woman and throwing her halfway across the floor. More sunlight entered through the window and all of the unearthly, unholy members were yanked back through the portals that shimmered where the walls of the cell had once been.
“No! No, I’m not finished!” screamed Zurfina.
