About seven years ago, I was struck by inspiration. During a conversation with a friend about the peculiar characteristics of the planet Mercury, I realized that I had an idea for a story. For years, I had been plying my trade as an aspiring science fiction writer, hoping that I could one day create something that would catch the eye of publishers and readers. At last, I felt like I finally had something I would be proud to put my name on! Within a few months of plotting, planning, and liaising with other aspiring authors, I managed to attract the attention of a publisher (Paul P. Corcoran at Castrum Press).

Another two years passed, wherein I wrote the manuscript for my first novel, The Cronian Incident. This was published in 2017 and was followed a year later by its sequel, The Jovian Manifesto. By 2020, the third and final installment, The Frost Line Fracture, was published. The Formist Series was complete, and I planned to write several more (as per the plan hatched by Paul and me). Alas, the pandemic wasn’t kind to Castrum and other upstart publishing houses. A few months ago, I was told that Castrum would be closing its doors and that my titles (along with its other publications) would be discontinued.

Luckily, I had a backup plan. And after a brief hiatus, my trilogy is back on the shelf! The entire series can be found on Amazon again, along with the original artwork (thanks to the publisher!) They are available in paperback and ebook, with will be available from Audible in the not-too-distant future. The current editions have even been updated and polished to ensure they deliver the best reading experience. Follow the links below to learn more or to buy copies:

      1. When you sell well, like I did this weekend? Wonderful! When you don’t? Kind of dispiriting. Also, you should look and see what opportunities are available for you in your area. Guarantee there’s going to be at least one fair or con or expo that would like to work with you. And if not, you can always start your own.
