After a long hiatus, I’m back with some new books. The second installment of the Concerto for Rachel trilogy will be released on May 1, 2022. It’s called, My Sun Sets to Rise Again, and it’s been years in the making. I have never written anything that had so many edits, rewrites, and beta reads. Steven King was right that at some point you just have to launch the damn thing and stop trying to make it perfect. I’m happy with the final result, and I hope you will be, too.
My first book, The Vials of Our Wrath, will be released on Audible on the same day! I found a wonderful voice actor, Stacey Lind, who is turning my final revision of Vials into an audiobook. I can’t wait to bring this project to you. (After hearing Stacey read a sample, I’m an unapologetic fanboy.) If the response is good, I’ll get other books in the Concerto into audio format as well.
Speaking of which . . .
My new series, The Knight Nurses of the Order of St. John, will also be released in May, with an audiobook of the first volume performed by Phil Thron coming out in July. Sci-Fi and Fantasy fans will know Phil from his amazing work on the Space Team series.
Knight Nurses, K-Nurses for short, are a group of Knights Hospitaller from the Crusades who were magically reincarnated by Saladin’s head sorcerer. They have lived many lives throughout the centuries, battling an evil corporation from another dimension. The executives of that company are exiled mages from our world who are obsessed with returning to take revenge. They are the Returned.
And the only ones standing in their way are the K-Nurses.
Why not Knights Templar, you ask? Everybody has heard of them! I’ll let my narrator, Paul, answer that:
Why a warrior and a caregiver? That's who I have always been. See, this is what makes us so much better than those Templars that everybody is so obsessed with. (Let it go, Paul. Let it go.) They were just knights; they fought. That's it. We fought, sure, but we also cared for the sick. Do people remember that part? We even have a sigil every bit as cool as the Templars, cooler even. Still, they get all the press.
The Hospitallers were healers as well as warriors, and so, throughout the centuries, they have been reincarnated to live and work in the highest tradition of caregiving: they are nurses.
The first two volumes, The Road to Damascus and But A Wandering Voice, will be released on May 1, although they can be preordered now. A companion novelette, The Left Hand of God, will be released at the same time. This story lives in the K-Nurse world but is not part of the series.
The third volume, A Singer of Thrace, is set for release in July.
