Hello protagonists! So, it’s been nearly three years since I released Spring-Heeled Jack, the first book in my Queen of Spades series, and there’s been little to no word on its sequel that I teased at the end The King’s Broken Heart. Well, that’s going to change today!
For the past couple years, I’ve been unsure about the direction I’ve wanted to take the series: Did I want it to be a bit more action heavy or adventure-centric? Should I fully embrace the mystery genre like I did with SHJ? How long do I want these books to be? What ages am I actually aiming at?

Anita was so excited that Christmas Eve. She laid in her bed, trying her best to stay awake. Her mother and father had long since gone to sleep, but Anita was much too excited. This year, she was finally going to meet Santa Claus.
Anita had tried to stay awake in the past to meet Santa. Last year she tried to camp out underneath the living room sofa right next to the Christmas tree, but alas, her parents caught her and forced her back to her room. They insisted that the only way she’d ever get to meet Santa was if she was well behaved, and anybody who knew Anita knew that well behaved was not how you’d would describe her.

Two years and three months.
It’s been quite some time since I last posted and to be honest, I wasn’t sure if I ever would again. These past few years had been real hard on me for more than one reason, and I didn’t know how seriously I wanted to take my writing. I didn’t really want to know what I wanted to do with my life and so I took a hiatus for a while, and when I tried to come back, I wasn’t sure if I was good enough. I started being extremely harsh on myself when it came to self-critique, and I was really putting myself down.
But then one day, I snapped to my senses and started working again. It was tough, but since them I’ve gotten back to working on my novels and even started writing up a few short stories. I tried to get these short stories published to some online publications, but unfortunately I’ve had no such luck. So, I decided I’d start posting them here!
One of my biggest struggles with hosting a blog site like this was knowing what to post. I’ve tried several different things over the years, and I think just sharing my work here for free is the best way to go.
So, coming this Halloween I’m going to be releasing a short story fitting for the season. I hope you all look forward to it and I hope you’re ready for the spooks! Thank you very much for tuning in and I hope you all have a wonderful day.
Hello protagonists! Today is the day! Spring-Heeled Jack is available for physical purchase on Amazon right now! That’s right everyone, now you can physically hold this book that I’ve been talking oh so much about.
If you want, the eBook is still FREE at Smashwords and $0.99 on Amazon if you’d want that instead. Anyways everyone, that’s all I have to say for the day. Thank you very much for tuning and I hope you all have a very wonderful day!
Hello protagonists! If you’re a follower of mine and have been reading my blog for a while, you’ll be very aware of my recently released book Spring-Heeled Jack. I’ve talked about it a lot and now that the physical release is getting closer, I thought that I need to address something very important. Constantly, I call Spring-Heeled Jack and the whole Queen of Spades series steampunk. But, is it really? When I explain it to my friends they all ask me if it really qualifies as a steampunk story or a sci-fi story that just takes place in the past. I guess before we can answer that, we’ll need to buckle down and define steampunk itself.
