Thank You!

I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks to everybody who bought a copy of Blood Brothers yesterday, or passed the word on to their friends and family about it. Your support was enough to put my book on the #7 spot of the bestseller list for Metaphysical Fantasy--right next to works by several authors I admire, like Paulo Coelho, Neil Gaiman, and Franz Kafka--and to get the book special mention as the "#1 Hot New Release" in that section. Rankings are added up hourly, so Blood Brothers might not be on those lists for long, but I'm hoping that even a temporary presence will put my book in front of more potential readers, and get the ball rolling.

So Thanks! Gracias! Mahalo! I am sincerely grateful for your support.

P.S. If you didn't get a copy yesterday, you still can (wink wink, nudge nudge). Just click here.

Blood Brothers now available!

My first novel is now available on Amazon Kindle. It's a Sword and Sorcery fantasy novel (or maybe "Axe and Alchemy" would be more appropriate), with three alternating points of view. Here's the description:

Ostracized by society because of the birthmark that mars his face, Grillis Bloodborn has lived all of his short life in a cottage in the forest, cutting wood and tending pigs. Upon the death of his grandmother, the only family he has ever known, he sets out on a quest to find favor with the Gods for her soul. Grillis’s travels bring him to a city where a young trash-picker named Athemon has just begun to discover the power to punish the men who have made his life a hell. As fate draws the two youths together, they learn that payback comes with a price of its own. Meanwhile, in the depths of the unconquered wilderness a young mystic named Verlvik begins to experience a series of miracles and visions… and the visions lead toward Athemon.
