Chicago area book signing – June 1st

Today in very cool news: the First Infantry Division Museum at Cantigny has asked me to do a history lecture / book reading next month. I’ll be sharing some of the stories from “Combat and Other Shenanigans,” discussing my experiences in Iraq, and signing books afterward. If you’re in the area, come out, check out the museum, and say hi! More details here, on their Facebook page.



Find out how it ends…

Reckoning - 600x800This is how it all ends!

Rath’s Gambit is out!

Book 2 in the Janus Group series is now live!  Go grab your copy in the next few days to save a few bucks off the regular price. My thanks to everyone who picked up a pre-order copy, and the Pathfinders who are already outdoing their efforts on Book 1 and posting a ton of awesome reviews.

Get it here:

Gambit - 600x800Rath just assassinated a senator, and completed his final mission for the Janus Group. Now every Interstellar Police officer on Alberon is searching for him. If they don’t find him, one of his fellow contractors certainly will … and the most feared criminal organization in the galaxy has severe punishments for employees who break the rules. Rath’s only hope is to find the rogue contractor who helped him escape a company deathtrap after his final mission. United, the two assassins might just get free from the Janus Group and get what they’re owed. But first they’ll need to survive.


Rath’s Deception – coming soon!

Super excited to reveal the cover for Rath’s Deception – Book 1 in the Janus Group series. Coming next month!

Deception - 600x800

(click for bigger)  Many thanks to my cover designer, James, who did a fantastic job on the typography and design elements. The artwork is courtesy of the legendary John Harris, and if the style looks familiar, that’s because his art has graced the covers of  Ender’s Game, several of John Scalzi’s books, and Ann Leckie’s Imperial Radch series.  I’m still somewhat amazed I was able to secure the rights…feel like one of those guys that found a Picasso in his attic.  And wait until you see Book 2 and 3… 🙂


Rath’s Deception

On the cut-throat streets of Tarkis, orphaned teens like Rath end up jailed … or dead. So when the shadowy Janus Group offers Rath a chance to earn riches beyond his wildest dreams, he seizes it. But the Janus Group is as ruthless as the elite assassins it controls. Rath will have to survive their grueling, off-world training, and fulfill all fifty kills in his contract before a single cent comes his way. And ending so many lives comes with a price Rath can’t anticipate. It’ll certainly cost him what’s left of his innocence. It may well cost him his life.
