I’m starting up this thread to post when I have new fantasy novels out, as opposed to the series that I’ve released or will be releasing. I’m also going to post about what fantasy works I already have out. First up is one I’ve had out a while, The Fateful Lightning:

Owen Brown has followed his father, John Brown, to Kansas Territory to fight the wicked institution of slavery. He’s met one of the native medicine men of the Territory, who teaches him something the white men call “magic.” Over the next decade, Owen will use magic in the service of the cause, taking him across the Territory and the nation.

This was inspired by the research I did into the two biographies I wrote about important Bleeding Kansas & Civil War leaders.

Next up is a novel I put out a few months ago, Boodle Land:

Harrison County lies in the High Plains of Kansas. Settlers are coming west, and even this small and isolated county is growing. But all is not peaceful on the prairie.

Two towns, Verona and Promontory, want to be the county seat. The town that gets the seat will get the county government, the chance for a railroad, and hope for the future. The town that doesn’t get the seat might not exist in six months or a year. This desire will spark a rivalry between the towns that will last for years.

Magickers won’t decide the outcome. Neither will gunfighters or the Army. No, the battle will be waged at the ballot box, in civil court, and in the columns of the towns’ newspapers. Which town will prove itself, and which will be nothing but a “boodle town?”


This one was inspired by all the research I’ve done over the years regarding county seat fights. And yes, in the book I tell you what “boodle” means. 😀
