All my interviews, all the latest Artemis Bridge and Bridge Chronicles news and any reviews my books garner will end up in this section.

I've just gotten the preliminary work done on the cover image for the upcoming Bridge Chronicles novel, The Long and the Short Swords. I thought I'd go ahead and share it with the fans now, even though it may change before the book gets released. The edits are coming along nicely and I'll be posting an excerpt sometime before the Thanksgiving holiday. 

As I just posted on my Twitter feed, the first draft of the next Bridge novel, titled The Long and the Short Swords, is complete. I've got a good month of editing or more to do on it, as well as create a cover and do the print layout before it goes on sale. The tedious work begins next weekend. I'll likely be releasing some excerpts on the site as I get them edited, so check back in to get some exclusive first looks at the novel.

My first official in-person book signing and author appearance has been confirmed! Next week, Tuesday, August 21, 2012 at 6 p.m. I'll be appearing at the G. Chastaine Flynt Memorial Library, in Flowood, MS (a suburb of the capital Jackson, MS). I'll have a few copies of all three of my novels for sale and will gladly sign any copies purchased or brought with you. I will be discussing the formation of my main protagonist, Artemis Bridge, as well as some eerie parallels between my setting and the real world. For directions to the venue, you can click here.
