Bestselling books, for free!


Hi friends!

Do you know what makes this time of the year special? Here’s some trivia you can drop to impress your friends and family: this past Friday was the Gaelic festival of Beltane, which marks the halfway point to Halloween.

To celebrate this, I am making all three of my bestsellers free on Amazon, from May 4th, to May 8th. Everyone loves free, right? It takes only seconds, and you get a free bestseller for your Kindle!

You can find my first novel Bad Apple, here:

And its sequel, Revenant Moon:

And the popular weird tales anthology, Nighttime Tales:

I hope you grab all three books (if you haven’t already), and if you have friends you think would like them, be sure to tell them! I’m sure they’ll be glad you did (and so will I).

Have a great week!



P.S. Some fun trivia: Beltane is preceded by Walpurgis Night, also known as Witch’s Night. Now the best part: when JK Rowling was first writing Harry Potter, the Death Eaters were originally called the Knights of Walpurgis. I think she chose the better name!

P.P.S If you have read one of my books, please consider leaving a review. They really help me out. Thanks!

Simon Warner Goes to the Weird, Weird West in Revenant Moon


My wonderful readers, it’s time I told you something. Book Two of the Warner Grimoire is now available on Amazon. I had meant to make this announcement sooner, but my wife and I had another major release, so to speak. Our daughter was born just a few weeks ago, so everything and anything not immediately baby related was shifted into lower priority.

Now, I am triple-blessed. First, with my amazing wife, and now with my daughter, who despite her tiny fingers has a powerhouse grip on my heart. And finally, my wonderful writing career has brought me to a point where I can proudly tell you that Simon’s adventure now continues.

If you’ve been waiting to start Simon’s story, the first book, Bad Apple, is available for free on Amazon.

And because I know some people love the “jacket” copy, I am including it here.


On the far edges of Freemancer territory, a secluded frontier town holds a dangerous secret. There, Simon Warner and his mentor must uncover the source of the foul magic that is causing the dead to rise. 

When Simon meets a man who cannot die, Simon realizes that no amount of training could prepare him for what lies ahead. For in the distant town of Spectre, the monsters are hard at work. But what could they be up to? 

Revenant Moon is an action-packed magical adventure that continues the story of one young wizard fighting to save his soul. 

Read it, then grab the book, and tell a friend. This is my best book yet, and I can’t wait for you all to check it out.

Announcing the Warner Grimoire Beta Reader Program


It’s no secret that I’m continuing work on The Warner Grimoire. Anyone who picked up Bad Apple was treated to a sneak preview of the second book, titled Revenant Moon. Well, as with any book, there comes a time when a pre-release needs to be cycled through a group of willing readers for feedback. So what does that mean, exactly?


It’s pretty simple. Revenant Moon is nearly complete, and that means a readable pre-release copy is going to be available *very* soon. Now, the book is still some months from its official release, so what does that mean?


That’s right. Pre-release copies of Revenant Moon are top secret! Only a handful of potential readers will have the opportunity to read and provide feedback on Revenant Moon. Think of the prestige! This is a book that has hit #1 on the Free Sword and Sorcery charts on Amazon, and has sold thousands of copies.

And you have a chance to see what’s coming next before anybody else.

Not only that, but you have the chance to help shape and mold this new adventure, months before the world will read it! Something you didn’t like? Let me know! Have some interesting idea you want to share? I want to hear it! This unique opportunity gives you a small creative role in the Warnerverse. Isn’t that awesome?

I have something special planned as my way of showing my thanks. Starting with Revenant Moon, I’m including a special Thank You page for all Beta Readers who submit feedback, and I have some other special perks planned for down the road. You get everything! Special access to Revenant Moon, as well as individual gratitude in a book that will sell all over the globe!

All it takes is time. Time to read, time to gather your thoughts, and time to send those thoughts my way.

Are you interested in becoming a Beta Reader for Revenant Moon? Sign up here.

And if you find yourself despairing that you have not read Bad Apple, fear not! As a way of launching the beta program for interested readers, Bad Apple is currently FREE on Amazon, to help you get a jump start into the world of Simon Warner!

So what are you waiting for? Grab a free book! Sign up for the Beta Reader program! And tell a few friends while you’re at it!

Trick or Treat! It’s a free ebook giveaway




BAD APPLE takes place right around Halloween, so it’s only appropriate to give people the chance to grab a free copy. Maybe this will even start a tradition. Did I mention it’s currently #19 in the Sword and Sorcery category?

Also, just today Freebooksy has said, “BAD APPLE is a great blend of paranormal, horror, and fantasy.” And that’s pretty awesome. So come on, get you a copy!

Nighttime Tales: Volume 1 is also available for your digital bookshelf for free, if you so desire. It’s currently #79 in the Short Stories category, and that’s pretty awesome too. Get it here.

And if you have gotten these before, and you liked them, would you consider leaving a review on Amazon’s page for the book? Reviews are an incredibly helpful way for me to reach new readers, and every little bit helps! For just the few minutes it takes to leave a review, I promise you hours of great entertainment. And I’ll keep making it free as much as I can!

So there you go, the power is all yours. Do some clicking, maybe some typing, and receive unto your digital reader some fun stuffs I made with you in mind. Happy Halloween!

(Oh, and if you don’t see this until November 1st, that’s okay! Because November 1st is a bonus free day!)

A small treat for the long weekend.

What up Radical Readers,

It’s a long weekend, and it’s long overdue that I do something most-excellent for you. Since I had the benefit of some extra time this week, I decided to put a chunk of that time into polishing up a little treat of sorts–a downloadable package of wallpapers and other various goodies based around Bad Apple. I’m even throwing in a supplementary short story that revolves around Luke Briar, the puckish bad boy (and fan favorite) who torments Simon on his quest to save his adoptive father. I’ve labeled the whole shebang the Freemancer Welcome Kit, because at its core, this goodie bag is about making sure you feel welcome in the Warnerverse, and having the goodies to prove it.

I’ve made it available in both epub and PDF format. Why would I be so accommodating like that? Because, home skillet, anything else would be grody to the max.

There’s some equally bodacious other treats to be found, but I won’t spoil the surprise. Just follow the link below, and enjoy. I’m indulging my sweet tooth for All Things ’80s this weekend, and as you can tell from the lingo, it’s already infected my brain.

Have a great weekend!
