It’s official, Sky Warrior Publishing’s edition of Owl Dance is now available both in print and all popular ebook formats. Owl Dance is my wild west steampunk novel that tells the story of a healer from Persia and a former sheriff who are on the run from bounty hunters when a creature from the stars encourages the Russian Empire to invade the United States in 1876. This new edition was edited by Carol Hightshoe and cleans up a handful of typos that were missed in the first edition. Admittedly, it’s only been five months since the previous edition went out of print, but it’s great to have see it back out there in time for Phoenix Comicon. What’s more, this new edition is available in more ebook formats than were previously available. If you’d like to learn where you can get a copy or read the first chapter, please visit the Owl Dance page at my website.
Also, this week, Phyllis Irene Radford completed her edit of the sequel, Lightning Wolves and sent it to the publisher for final formatting and publication. This means publication is imminent! I have updated the Lightning Wolves page at my website to include the first chapter to whet your appetite for the novel. In Lightning Wolves an inventor exiled from Mexico hunts ghosts while the U.S. Army seeks any means necessary to break the Russian’s hold on America’s west coast.
Now it’s time to get serious about the third book in the series, The Brazen Shark. This one will be a little different than the first two in that Ramon and Fatemeh find themselves on the other side of the Pacific, caught in a burgeoning conflict between the Russians and the Japanese. Fortunately, they’ll have help from engineer-turned-pirate Onofre Cisneros and samurai-turned-farmer Masuda Hoshi.
