    Hello,

    I started my "Blue Pistol" series of fantasy novels last fall. The first was called Cassia:

    A young woman named Cassia, journeyman in the Slavers’ Guild of the Settled Domains, is tasked to capture a mysterious outlaw named The Blue Pistol. Her encounter with him will shatter her life and subject her to physical and emotional agony. But in understanding his battle and her own past, Cassia will seek to overcome her pain and prove that she can be of value to those who are willing accept her.


    Here's where you can find it:
    Amazon
    B&N

    Smashwords


    I'll add more posts about the second and third books in the series soon. Thanks for reading!

    The second "Blue Pistol" novel is called Nobles:

    "We must have allies in the Domains," Cassia says to Bart. That means convincing members of the nobility that the Slavers Guild cannot be trusted, and the notorious Blue Pistol is no threat to their rule.
    To that end, they kidnap Cornelia, the daughter of one Duke. They show her that her father is treating her like a trinket given to curry favor. Will she get the chance to prove her value to cause of ending slavery?
    They also send a merchant and a wizard to the realm of Duke Avitus. These newcomers bring a message of freedom. Will Avitus listen to their message, and risk the anger of the Guild?
    Nobles is available in print and ebook editions. Here's where you can get it:

    The third "Blue Pistol" novel is called Rebels:

    The Blue Pistol and his allies have freed a few dukedoms in the Settled Domains from the power of the Slavers Guild. Those gains must be protected, & more people must be freed from slavery.

    Two dukedoms are targeted to advance the cause: Black Rapids & Saint’s Hope. One will see an attempt at rebellion; the other, an attack by lies and hard truths.

    Can the Blue Pistol liberate more land from control by the Guild? Can more nobles be trusted to see the value in ending slavery? Can the common people of the Domains be trusted to take the reigns of power?


    Rebels is in print and ebook editions:

    The fourth novel will probably come out in the fall.

    The fourth "Blue Pistol" novel is out, and it's called Bombs:


    “With the events in Saint’s Hope and Black Rapids last year, the Slavers Guild might want to go on the offensive against the Blue Pistol. It would be better to keep them distracted.”

    That’s why Bart Cochran wants to shift the war of the Blue Pistol against the Slavers Guild in the new year. He suggests targeting a dukedom farther from the gains of previous years. His scheme will involve convincing a Guild Master that the rivalry between the Dukedoms of Hilltown and Low Falls is on the verge of erupting into war.

    His other suggestion is to have their allies in Freeman’s Hold build bombs, disguised as letter boxes, that will be sent to every Duke in the Settled Domains that isn’t on the Blue Pistol’s side.

    What happens to slavery in the Domains when these schemes explode?


    The novel is in print and ebook editions; here's where it's at now:
    Amazon
    B&N
    Smashwords

    More retailers coming soon. Thanks for taking a look!
