"Forge a New Blade" is published!
My latest book, "Forge a New Blade", Book 2 of the Laredo War trilogy, is now available at Amazon.com in e-book format.
A print edition will be available later this week - I'll post a link as soon as it's released.
This one has been a lot of fun to write. I enjoy the Laredo plot arc, and I had a lot of fun making this book work across hundreds of light years and well over a year in time. It was a big challenge to get the timeline straight, so that events in one place affecting one set of characters were 'balanced' with those at another place, affecting other characters. I also enjoyed linking the Steve Maxwell series with this trilogy, having the character arcs of my two protagonists intersect in ways that will affect both their futures. (Look for Maxwell Book 5 in August, and Laredo Book 3 in November, both of which will build on this volume.)
Thanks to everyone for your support this year. To those of you who are bloggers or on social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) I'd be very grateful if you'd please pass the word about this new release. I'm a lone operator, without the marketing resources of a major press to help me, so I'm totally dependent on the support of my friends and fans. Thank you very much in advance!
