Local Author Meet & Greet

On June 1, 2013, I will have the honor to attend the Local Author Meet and Greet at the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore at 7051 Clairemont Mesa Boulevard in San Diego. I will be joining a select group of great authors of Sci-Fi and Fantasy books to present our efforts to the local community. I am thrilled with the opportunity to showcase my books in such a wonderful place. I hope you will join us for this special event between 3pm and 5pm on Saturday, June 1.

There will be special pricing and I will be very happy to discuss my books and autograph any copies you may wish to purchase. I look forward to meeting as many current and potential new fans as possible.

I will present the first four books of the Dave Brewster Series and book one of the Heartstone Series. Copies of book four might be late (Tears of Gallia?), but I will happily send Tears of Gallia to those anxious to see what happens to Dave Brewster next.

If you have any questions or comments about this event, please review the bookstore’s website at or call them at 858-268-4747.

I look forward to seeing you there.


Website Update

Dear readers,

I have spent some time updating my site. Each book deserves to have its own page. Now when you click on either the Dave Brewster Series or Heartstone Series links, you will find a page showing the covers and titles of each. Clicking on them will take you to a more detailed description and some of my thinking behind each work.

I encourage you to post on any page with your comments about my books or any other ideas you might have. I appreciate all feedback and will try to answer all your questions promptly.

Thanks again for reading my works.

Tears of Gallia is Published!

Tears-ebookcover (2)Book 4 of the Dave Brewster Series has been published and is ready for sale.

Tears of Gallia is a very complex novel featuring the risks of time travel and the persistence of the enemies Dave Brewster has faced in the earlier novels. It peers into the soul of his best friend, General Fa-a-Di of Greater Gallia. The back cover reads:

Following his success at the Grand Conclave on Earth Prime, Dave Brewster and his friends set out to expand the Free Society. However, all is not well in the galaxy. A Maklakar battle station is headed toward Earth. Mysterious ripples in space-time are confounding the Temporal Command. Agents from Predax and the Brotherhood are recruiting other planets to join their crusade against the Free Society.

Setting aside those challenges to help his Gallicean friends, Dave follows them on the Sojourn, an ancient ritual to remember the atrocities of the past. On the two planets in the Gallicea system, Dave learns of the past but also discovers the truth is often visible only to those willing to see.

Tears of Gallia is a story of friendship, faith, and perseverance. Will Dave be able to stop the Brotherhood from starting a galactic war? Can he survive a madman’s attempts to kill him or strand him in the ancient past?
