@Quill, I love that cover!
@Justan Henner , That May be the best blurb ever.  ;D

Thanks, I'm quite happy with it too. The artist did a great job capturing the setting and tone of the book, I think. :)

I've added you this morning, didn't you notice?
Let me know if you prefer something other than 'Altearth series' as I wrote.

Thank you so much! And now I shall appear ungrateful and nit-picky, for Altearth isn't a series. So far, all my books are standalone, though all do occur in Altearth. The book titles are:
Mad House
Goblins at the Gates
A Child of Great Promise

Geez. Authors.

No problem, names changed/added.

And if you think this is you being picky, you still don't know me very well ;)

Oooh, nice idea.

I haven't read Supremacy's Shadow (yet) but I can recommend @tebakutis other series, Tales of the Five Kingdoms, starting with Glyphbinder. I'm generally not a fan of the YA end of epic fantasy, but that trilogy was pretty good.

I'm a tebakutis fan as well! I love his snarky scifi!!! Loose Circut was badass and what I've read of Supremacy's Shadow is very exciting.



Most of my official publication writing creds are from my non-fiction writing alter-ego, but as far as fiction goes... Idk if this qualifies or not, but I've got some short stories published in a couple of charity anthologies (tho I reprinted my fav one on my website if anyone doesn't feel like paying to read it). 

I'm the very last story in Gifts from the Dark "The Killer 10"

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/27392732-gifts-from-the-dark

And I've got several poems and stories in this one, including "the number" about calling the phone number scrawled in a public toilet stall

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/29077215-hearts-other-dead-things

...if that counts at all anyway.

Alrighttt *breathes in deeply to calm my jittery nerves*, I've got my fleeting novella The Knight of Chimera (don't read it, I wrote this wayyy back and it kind of sucks), and a short story, "The Bejeweled Chest" in Cirsova #9.

I’ve read the killer 10 by Mr Darewood , I bought the anthology.

I liked the chemistry between Joe and Mike

I had to Google to see who Betty White is haha.

After listening to Joe I would have put snacks in my car and an empty bottle to pee in so I wouldn’t get out of my car until The journeys end Or more likely I would have gone on a different route.

You sold Phoenix to me  ;) very descriptive


I loved the line why would terrorist come to Arizona to have a shit it made me laugh in the context of the story.

I did like the twist at the end but I did work it out  just before the reveal.

Okay “ a low grumble faintly registered in Mike’s ears “  Mike’s stomach  faintly grumbled would have been better.

Female cashier says “on the lose” should it be loose?

I enjoyed the story and I think you portrayed a  man with the runs  perfectly, mind you he should have relieved himself at the jobsworth female cashier building for not letting him use the restroom when he clearly needed to go.

Oh and the homeless man was scary.

Being British I did wonder why he was putting his pants back on then I realised you meant jeans.

Aweee thanks Eclipse!!!! I could have sent you the story for free you know, but all the money from the anthology is donated to charity.

Phoenix *is* charming and this is actually based on a true story. (I actually stopped in the middle of the night and wrote most of this in my car at a rest stop on the border between CA and AZ)  I'll let you guess which parts actually happened....

British people don't have pants???
