Wow, it’s been a long time since I updated this page.  Sorry about that.

So, I’m presently banging away at Alone and Unafraid, the third Praetorian novel.  Put simply, it’s being something of a bear.  While I’m a significant part of the way done, it’s not done yet, and it’s probably going to require some serious rewrites.  It is coming, eventually.

That said, I’ve got three more Jed Horn stories on the horizon, one of which is a prequel to A Silver Cross and a Winchester, revealing Jed’s introduction to the Order.  The other two come after Silver Cross.  There’s a haunted sanitarium, an age-old evil that’s claimed the lives of twenty Hunters over the last century, and a few other things that go bump in the night.

The Praetorian series has taken a turn away from the direction I thought it would, and that’s, I think, for the better.  Provided I get Alone and Unafraid done, we’ll see stories coming up in the Tri-Border Area of South America, Mexico, Nigeria, Eastern Europe (I foresee a long-standing feud between the Praetorians and the SVD/Mafiya), and possibly Central Asia somewhere.

There’s also a stand-alone about fighting Malay pirates that I’ll admit is partly inspired by Far Cry 3.

There are a couple of fantasy and science fiction stories that have been floating in the background for several years now that I’d like to get around to eventually.  They’re still a little ways off yet, but they’re coming.

    I have truly loved the first two Praetorian novels and look forward to the continuation of the series. Please continues the series beyond a three book run. I am a true fan of your writing style and of the choice of your writing genre! I can’t wait till the next book comes out and in the meantime I will read a Silver Cross and a Winchester.

    BTW – Keep “Hillbilly” alive and well! Poor Bob.. heroic protecting his brothers but also full of suck.

    GO ARMY BEAT NAVY! (I hope.. please) Cheers, CJ

    Decided that I was going to read the Pratorian series again, because they are that good, and jumped on here to figure out which one was first. Just realized you had the snippets to the next book on here, my day just got a whole lot better. Somehow you’re not showing up in my WordPress reader, I’m gonna fix that. But now, I think that I will go ahead and read Hunting In The Shadows and Task Force Desperate again, before the new stuff. Buy a little time, maybe Alone And Unafraid will be closer to being done. Looking forward to it. SF.
