The Laurel

Just got the new cover for my next book titled The Laurel! It will be released on May 23rd 2016 through Indie Gypsy.



In The Laurel, the gods and the immortals interplay, and both will learn a valuable lesson about love and life, a lesson that will forever be told. Zeus, after bedding and impregnating the fair Titaness Leto, becomes father to twins: Apollo and Artemis. Unlike his other “bastard” children, Apollo and Artemis are made into gods, an event which will set the course for the rest of the story. Artemis has never forgotten the heartache that her mother suffered at the hands of her father Zeus, and as such, she wishes to lead a solitary life, away from men and love and relationships. Though she stands firm in her conviction, moments bubble up in her that are full of yearning. Apollo, who has never been seen without a smile on his face, is much more fanciful and wanting than Artemis. He wants love, and he wants it in a big way. Having loved and lost love, Apollo believes he has found it again with the beautiful nymph, Daphne. He quickly learns, however, that she has made a vow to celibacy. But that doesn’t matter to Apollo; his love for her is so profound that he asks her to be his companion, to live with him just so that he can be near her. Apollo’s lifelong wish is about to come true, but people on the fringes of his life have other plans. Those plans not only thwart what could be the love of a lifetime for Apollo, but it also will be the catalyst to which both gods and mortals will learn how much one should love, how much one should consider the feelings of the one loved.

2015 was a wild ride.


In the first few months of the year we’d just signed on two new authors, Matthew Freake and Adam Gaylord with their novels Forbidden and Sol of the Coliseum when we learned that Musa Publishing was closing their doors.

We’d met the talented Sharon Ledwith at the Windsor-Essex Book Expo a few months earlier and I have to admit that I was eyeing her beautifully done covers and musing over the fact that her time travel series would fit nicely with our other titles. Neither of us could have expected that months later we’d be discussing a contract to re-release The Last Timekeepers and the Arch of Atlantis and its prequel, Legend of the Timekeepers.

Musa’s plight became an opportunity for us and, after some serious consideration, we decided to invite the displaced Musa authors to submit to us. We couldn’t take all of their…
