Fracture (The Machinists, Book 1)

Allyn Kaplan’s life is anything but magical. As a first year associate at a prestigious Portland law firm, his professional life is on the rise. All that is turned upside-down by a mysterious attack on his life by strange people with stranger abilities. Thrust into an underground world of magic where rival Families are on the brink of war, Allyn wants only to return to his normal life and thriving career.

But distancing himself from this new reality is nearly impossible. Haunted by the attack and questioning why he was targeted to begin with, Allyn's questions only deepen with the sudden disappearance of his sister. The only place to turn for answers, and for help, is a Magi Family whose agenda he wants no part of. Yet with his sister's life on the line, he may have no choice but to pick a side.

October, 2016 Updates!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000446_00062]Hello from Portland!

If you’ve been following me on Facebook at all, you’ve probably seen me talk about a lot projects lately, so I wanted to take a moment to explain each in a little more detail. Here’s everything I’m currently wo
rking on (with confirmed and targeted release dates!):

Martyr, Book #3 of The Machinists – This is done and will be available on October 18th in print and eBook format at all major online retailers.

Heritage, Book #0.5 of The Machinists – Yes, I kinda made up that numbering system. Heritage is a prequel novella (22,500 words compared to Martyr’s 78,000) set in the world of The Machinists, and will be available on the same day as Martyr (October 18th). I wrote it to take a break from the normal Machinists crew, explore new character, setting, and time period, while also rewarding those who have signed up for my mailing list. Fans of The Machinists will really like it (my editor loved it) as it gives us a view of what life was like for early magi, and shows the formation of one of the Order’s most influential Families. Since it was written to readers who have signed up for my mailing list, the only way to get it is, you guess it, by signing up for my mailing list. It will never be available via Amazon or any other retailer.

Exposure, Book #4 of The Machinists – I’ve mentioned before that The Machinists is going to be a five book series, so the tension really gets ratchete
d up in this one. I’m currently writing Exposure, and am about 20% of the way through my first draft, and targeting a late Spring/early Summer release.

As if that wasn’t enough, I’m outlining a couple ideas for my next series. There’s a sci-fi series that I’m really excited about and an epic fantasy series that I’ve been tinkering with for a couple years. I haven’t decided which direction I’ll go yet, but in either case, I’m excited about what the future holds.

As always, thank you for reading. I can’t wait to share these new books with you!
