Forcefinder Phoenix

New San Francisco is a city floating in the sky. On its underside there is another, darker city: the Framework. Megan, a talented forcefinder mage and trained assassin, wants nothing more than to leave the Framework and to live topside. To be normal. But life in the Framework has a way of keeping you there.

One day her magic goes awry, destroying part of the Framework and angering the very person who made her magic possible.

Now the Crew is in trouble, and Megan gets kicked out of the killgirls and demoted to the trashboys—the worst squad in existence. But the trashboys aren’t exactly what they seem, and soon Megan finds herself embroiled in a framecar race for her life—and for the very existence of the Framework itself.

Attention Deficit

Twenty years ago, the Lightning struck. A new part of the brain awoke, then, a part that knows when someone is thinking about you. And everybody started dying.

It took a while for them to figure out what had happened. That’s when the watches came, the watches that told you how much tention you had. And when your bars went down to zero, you were dead.

Mila is a hooker who plans to live forever. But when she meets the creator of the Lightning, a scientist bent on stealing tention from the entire city, immortality becomes the least of her concerns.

Deus Ex Magicka
The Pantheon Series: Book 1

Magic has a price—Bitteric learned that the hard way. After casting a simple request for some good spice tea, a herd of rabbits killed his wife. Maybe the Deus thought that was funny. Maybe the rabbits were really hungry.

Or maybe Bitteric should have learned to brew his own tea.

Now he’s on a quest to find the final Medallion, to pit the Three Deuses against each other, or trick them, or maybe just ask them really, really nicely. He wants his wife back. And nothing—not even a flood of Amazonian proportions, or six hundred chattering ferrets—will stand in his way.

Deus Ex Veritas
The Pantheon Series: Book 2

A New York subway hurtling through the tunnels with a bomb. A bartender who drinks way too much tequila. A pair of glasses. A monkey with a scarf. What do all of these things have in common?

Lice. They all have lice. Well, not the monkey. He was pretty clean.

Bitteric just has one simple mission: escape the Creator Deus who is also a cat and who just happens to be trying to kill him; stop his secretary from jumping out of the twenty-seventh floor window; find out what secrets are hiding at the bottom of an ice cave in Tibet; and stop the aforementioned bomb from destroying the aforementioned city via the aforementioned subway. Without losing that aforementioned scarf.

Oh, and find some damn spice tea.

The beauty of fractal arcs

My epic urban fantasy series, THE PRIME SAGA, originally consisted of three books at about 250k words each. (That's pretty long.) This is the story of how I split them in half (and added two more), ending up with eight ~120k word books. I invented a term for it that...

Ah, process. Some people live by it. But most writers I meet, especially amateur writers, hate process. I'm a software engineer by trade—and I approach writing very professionally—so process is a very important part of things for me. Here, we'll explore my approach to...

Revision! Every author’s [least] favorite thing

This past year I've done a lot of writing, but I've also been heavily focused on revision. I hate revision, but it's a necessary evil in this business. So I thought it might be interesting to talk about some of the techniques I've developed. Now, this isn't meant to...

In praise of thriller pacing

John picked up the gun and checked the chamber—full, of course. Anna hadn't had time to get a shot off. But what had happened? His head was whirling. He couldn't make sense of anything. So he did the only thing he could do: he headed for the door at the far end of the...

Backshadowing—it’s foreshadowing, but backwards!

Allow me, if you will be so kind, to coin a new word. As authors, we're trained to always foreshadow. This means we drop hints to the reader in advance—preferably three or more times—that something is going to happen. Why foreshadow? Mostly, to avoid deus ex machina....

Sometimes you can skip the worldbuilding

There are three primary things that go into making a novel: character, setting, and plot. The prewriting process is where you design out all of those things before you begin putting words to paper. Authors are all over the map on how exactly they do this. Brandon...
