The dawn of a New Year--may it be a happy one for you!--is a good time to remind visitors that the main purpose of this blog is to advertise my literary efforts. I have self-published six books. Chief among them are the four volumes of the MERCENARIES series:
I: Storm Approaching
II: Gold and Glory
IV: The Free Lands
The first three are a connected series; the fourth is a stand-alone, but should be read only after reading the first three.
How to sum them up? This blog contains excerpts and other information, but here is a poem about Volume One:
No magic swords or mighty rings,No orphans who are really kings,
No elves or dwarfs or prophecies;
No ghouls or vampires, if you please.
A mercenary regiment,
Its men (and women), where it’s sent;
Its training, tactics, work, and play;
A growing threat (still far away);
That’s Storm Approaching. KIndly look
At this self-published, worthwhile book.
There are also:
And Gladly Teach, a satirical novel about a fictional boarding school, and
Hodgepodge, a collection of humorous essays on many topics.
