Vegas, baby!

A lot of LMBPN writers and staff arrived in Las Vegas Sunday night and the rest are arriving at some point today. We’re already plotting and planning things. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right? (As long as there is no video proof at least!)

But even though we’re in Vegas, that doesn’t mean the books won’t be making their way to your devices! We’ve got everything lined up and ready to go, so if you preorder them or purchase them on the day of release (or fan pricing Saturday) they’ll get to you without us having to do much of anything. Not bad, right?

I have 6 amazing books launching this week. One of them was supposed to release on Friday but there was an issue and it got delayed until this morning, so that book is out now! All the rest are on preorder and that makes for a great week!

Title: Undead With Honor
Series: Realm of Power and Fury Book 6
Release Date: 11/15/2022

Eric has chased the Necromancer across the dimensions back to his homeworld: Earth!

The Necromancer has proven he can summon even the long dead to his horde. With tens of billions of dead humans on Earth, he would be able to raise up a nearly limitless army of monsters, more than the people living in that magicless land could possibly battle.

Once Earth is subdued, then other worlds will fall like wheat before a scythe.

To stop him Eric must use more than just magic. He’ll need all his wits and the help of friends and family alike to defeat this most deadly foe.

Luckily for Eric, he’s not alone this time. Gunnar came through with him, so he has one of the mightiest Nord warriors at his side. If only he can keep the man focused on fighting the undead instead of flirting with Eric’s sister!

Tension grows within the pack, and their trust in Jasmine is shaken.

All the while, a dark cloud looms in the distance.

In this final showdown, Jasmine must overcome her tendency to operate alone and show her true skills as a leader.

Title: Make Yourself
Series: Messing Psychic Academy
Release Date: 11/16/2022

My name is Ben, and I died last year.


I’d hoped I would wake up from my near-death experience as a medium just in time for high school. Turns out it just wrecked my legs.

No medium talent, either. I’m something else. A summoner.

I know next to nothing about my talent besides it involves portals and pledge bonds. It’s okay, they teach it at school. Sounds perfect, right?


Mateo, the other summoner in my class, hates me.

The class clairvoyant thinks destiny has got it out for me, too. Makes sense. As if I don’t already feel like a square peg, getting around on crutches, my portals break stuff and go to the wrong realm.

It’s a good thing I’ve got help from my family, friends, and a celestial called Arie. It takes constant rehab just to keep my busted body working.

But how do I fix my broken talent?

Title: Steel Negotiations
Series: Skharr Deatheater Book 9
Release Date: 11/17/2022

Skharr DeathEater, the Barbarian of Theros, has not only gotten married, but he also has a child on the way.

Skharr doesn’t know how to do anything except take matters into his own hands.

Will he be able to do that when his wife is as deadly as he is and not in a good mood?

Eventually, someone must figure out what is going on in the north and Skharr is the right Barbarian for the job.

Will Skharr survive his wife’s pregnancy? Will the gods get involved ONE MORE TIME in his affairs? Will he plunge the empire into war?

It’s Skharr DeathEater. What do you think?

Field Training coverTitle: Field Training
Series: Brew City Blues Book 1
Release Date: 11/18/2022

Army veteran Michael Collins is looking for a new start after a personal tragedy.

Now a recruit officer fresh out of the police academy, Michael has taken his first step in becoming a Milwaukee Police Officer.

His next hurdle is passing twelve weeks of field training in the most dangerous part of town.

Welcome to the Brew City Blues.

Gangsters, sex workers, murderers, and thieves are just the external elements he will have to deal with to make it through field training. Michael is thrown into the fast-moving pace of a rookie’s life that takes him inside the lives of cops, criminals, victims, and their families.

Twenty-hour workdays and the department’s internal affairs unit making him feel like he has a bullseye on his back adds to the pressure.

Can this army vet with a troubled past survive the toughest part of his training in the Milwaukee Police Department and come to terms with the heartbreak from his past?

Note: This book contains profanities and situations not for the faint of heart. There is also dark, or what some call ‘gallows humor’ that police officers, and most other first responders use to deal with the ugliness that is thrown their way on a regular basis. This book is as realistic as it gets. Unless you are riding around in a squad car, now that’s real.

How does the old saying go? One door closes another door opens. Let’s hope that is the case for Michael as he begins a new life in the mean streets of Milwaukee.
