    I just posted this on my blog, but I thought the good folks at AH.com would like to hear about it directly.

    Your books sound fascinating. Is there anyway to purchase the first one besides Amazon?

    I really enjoyed both Shattered Nation and Blessed are the Peacemakers, and am looking forward to House of the Proud.

    One quibble.
    Please don't foreshadow events while telling the stories.

    I don't suppose you have a release date in mind for your next piece? I only ask because I devoured Shattered Nation (a thoroughly fantastic read imho).

    At 1:09 today, I typed the words "The End" on the draft of House of the Proud. The story is complete.

    Now there will be a few months of editing, formatting, cover design, and so forth. Then, it will be available for purchase.

    Just a quick update. Editing has gone much more slowly than I would like (not helped by the fact that I have a four-year-old and a baby running through the room or crawling under my feet every few minutes). But the pace has picked up recently. The cover art has now also begun. Can't give a release date yet, but looking forward to getting this novel to the presses as soon as possible.

    I am hoping to have House of the Proud released within the next two months. Stay tuned.

    Entering final phase of editing on House of the Proud. I expect it to be available for purchase in the next two weeks.

    Amazon does not have it listed, and they usually post books that have not as yet been published.

    Do we have a release date yet? The book sounds exciting with all the intrigue and a looming war!

    Just received my copy of House of the Proud yesterday. I just wish the type was larger. My 68 year old eyes are going to need stronger reading glasses.

    My e-reader is packed away in a box somewhere so I've been reading it on my smartphone. I feel your pain.
