This is a bit of a sideways lurch for me into trying something different. I had an awful lot of fun doing my book, and I think it shows in the final product.
And no, we’re not saying who wrote which one. Not yet anyway 🙂
BOOK 1: THE CIRCLE GATHERS
Not all legends are make-believe…
Three years ago, Jessie “the Berserker” Noble was at the top of the MMA fight game, a world-title contender with a brilliant future ahead of her. Then the visions started and her world came crashing down. Hard. Now Jessie’s a shadow of her former self, taking no-holds barred fights in the underground circuit to earn just enough to buy the drugs she needs to keep the horrible things she sees at bay.
When a man named Dante Grimm tells her she’s the modern incarnation of a champion of old and that she and her soon-to-be companions are desperately needed to hold back the darkness to come, Jessie thinks he’s as insane as she is.
But Grimm’s far from crazy. There is a battle coming the likes of which the world hasn’t seen in centuries, a battle against a foe straight out of their worst nightmares.
And for them to succeed, Jessie going to have to dive deep into the heart of the very thing she’s been running from all this time – her visions.
$0.99 for the first week and $3.99 thereafter.

BOOK 2: HOUND OF NIGHT
Sometimes, the magic is real.
John Seton is a grifter, an ex-pat Scots kid working penny-ante magic tricks on the streets of L.A. But John has a secret. In his family, sometimes, the magic is real. And sometimes, it gets him noticed.
A man named Dante Grimm tells him he’s the modern incarnation of a knight of old and that he is part of a group of companions tasked with holding back the darkness to come in a battle the likes of which the world hasn’t seen in centuries, a battle against a foe straight out of their worst nightmares.
Grimm sets Seton a quest, to find an item that is required to stop the coming dark, an ancient piece of leather of uncertain provenance, and high magic.
Seton sets out onto the streets, and quickly finds that he is not the only one after the halter. He is soon at odds with friends, family and foes alike, and when he is betrayed by the one person he has always been closest to, the quest comes to a head.
Seton has a hound on his tail, and he will have to travel far to avoid it, further than he has ever traveled before.
Beyond the Veil, where the darkness is real, and the hounds bay loudly.
BOOK 3: CLOAK OF FURY will be coming on December 13th, with 9 others to follow in 2017.
