Coming Soon: The Bonds of Blood

Cover Reveal and Blurb The next title in the Final Formula Series, The Bonds of Blood (aka FF4.5) is just about ready to go.  Like the other in-between books, James and Elysia tell this story.  But unlike the other in-between books, this one is a novel at almost 62,000 words. Here’s the cover and blurb.  Release date: July 15, 2016. Born without a heartbeat or a soul, James Huntsman has never felt part of the mortal world. It’s an insecurity his abusive brothers reinforced daily, and with his very existence bound to theirs through the alchemically altered blood they share, James has always been at their mercy. All that changed when James found a home within the magical community and fell in love. Elysia Mallory doesn’t mind that he is technically dead. The only thing standing between them is her lethal magic. As her health continues to deteriorate, James searches for a cure, determined to save her and give them a chance at a life together. But his brothers aren’t willing to let him go, not when the Huntsman legacy is dependent on James. They will stop at nothing to capture their wayward brother, and that includes using Elysia as leverage. James is left to decide how far he is willing to go to save the family he has chosen from the family he was created to serve. Update – I’ve added an excerpt. Read it here: The Bonds of...

Ian Novella Cover Reveal

My new novella featuring everyone’s favorite lich is almost ready to go.  Here’s a look at the cover and blurb for Blood Gifts.  Included with the novella is the short story, Lords of the Dead, originally posted here on my website.  That brings the total word count to almost 53,000 words.  Blood Gifts will be available in both ebook and print. Seventeen-year-old Ian is used to pressure. Born into a necromancer family, he and his twin brother Lex exhibited uncommon magical potential at an early age that led their father to expect great things—from them both. That is until Lex’s blood gift fails to manifest. Or so everyone believes. For the past five years, Ian has been keeping a secret. A secret that—if it got out—would see his brother shunned, or worse. Lex does have a blood gift, but not every gift is a blessing, and not every recipient can manage the talent in his blood. As Lex’s sanity begins to slip, Ian knows the responsibility to raise his family’s fortunes is on his shoulders, and his alone. When he is offered an apprenticeship with one of the most influential men in the necromancer community, Lex convinces Ian that the connection would offer their family even more if Ian were to marry his elderly mentor’s “spinster” niece. Ian’s plan takes an unexpected turn when he discovers that Isabelle is not a spinster. She’s a young, beautiful, intelligent woman who, unfortunately, wants nothing to do with him. Now Ian must find a way to win her over before Lex attempts to elevate their family, his way. Update – I just added an excerpt. You can read it here: Blood Gifts Release Date: Friday, April...

The Catalyst of Corruption

Cover Reveal, Blurb, and Excerpt It’s time for another cover reveal! Here is the cover, blurb, and excerpt for the fourth full-length novel in the Final Formula Series. (Yep, that’s Neil. I put my villain on the cover. 😛 ) Addie Daulton wants nothing to do with her dark past as an Alchemica alchemist. Content with her new life surrounded by the people she cares about, she has chosen to live with amnesia rather than face the person she was. She focuses on alchemy’s healing properties, helping others and hoping to find a way to save Rowan before his magic consumes him. But Addie isn’t the only one with a dark history. Her lab partner, Ian Mallory has just had his past resurrected in the form of his brother. Alexander is a powerful necromancer who has been secretly leading the necromancer community for centuries. He’s not the type to share his power, and certainly not with the Flame Lord. Addie must watch helplessly as Rowan struggles to maintain control of both his volatile magic and his influence in magical politics. Meanwhile, flashbacks tease her, suggesting that the solution to all their problems lies in her past. Unwilling to reclaim her memories, Addie must find another way to learn what she was studying at the Alchemica. Unfortunately, the only person who knows is her former colleague, Neil Dunstan. The question now becomes: how far is she willing to go to save the man she loves? Read an excerpt here: The Catalyst of Corruption Due to release in early February...
