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.

Q1 2017 Updates and Progress

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re getting some nice spring sun like we are here in the Pacific Northwest.

I’ve been hard at work on Book #4 of The Machinists over the last few months, and just hit a major milestone last weekend when I finally turned it in to my editor. Since it generally takes about three months for me to get through my editor’s notes, line edits, proofreads, etc. we’re looking at a release in the July time frame. That said, I’ve taken some time off from my day job, so I’m hoping to get through it even faster than usual, so there’s a *chance* I can have it out even sooner than that. Cross your fingers!

With this being the penultimate book in the series, there are some major twists in this one that I can’t wait to share with you. In the meantime, you can expect a cover and blurb reveal coming from me sometime soon. I haven’t seen the cover yet, but if it’s anything like the first three, I know it’s going to be awesome.

Now it’s back to work for me — I just wanted to take a moment and share the good news!

Thank you and happy reading!
