The Indie Book of the Day for 7th of August 2012!

Against the backdrop of epic warfare and the powers of ten mysterious gods, Lucia struggles to understand The Black One.

Her father-king wants war.

Her messianic brother wants peace.

The black god wants his due.

She suffers all the consequences.

King Vieri is losing his war against the lands of Pawelon. Feeling abandoned by his god, he forces his son Caio, the kingdom’s holy savior, to lead his army. Victory ought to come soon.

To counter Caio’s powers, Pawelon’s prince enters the conflict. Rao is a gifted sage, a master of spiritual laws. He joins the rajah to defend their citadel against the invaders. But Rao’s ideals soon clash with his army’s general.

The Black One tortures Lucia nightly with visions promising another ten years of bloodshed. She can no longer tell the difference between the waking world and her nightmares. Lucia knows the black god too well. He entered her bed and dreams when she was ten.

The Black One watches, waiting to see Lucia confront an impossible decision over the fates of two men–and two lands.

Read Sample

When I was ten, I fell in love with an anime series: a space opera spanning three human generations, a saga that unfolded over 85 consecutive episodes and four months of after-school TV. Watching ‘Robotech’ was a spiritual experience for me. I still remember how high I felt after watching the final episode for the first time. How many pleasures in life are better than a well-executed drama?

After that experience, I decided I wanted to be a storyteller when I grew up, hoping to someday inspire others as Robotech inspired me. Although I’ve written professionally and for pleasure for many years, it wasn’t until recently that I got back around to my heart’s desire when I was a boy: Telling the big story.

I’ve never had so much fun.

‘The Black God’s War’ is a stand-alone epic fantasy novel and an homage to Homer with a multicultural flavor. It’s also the first book in the ‘Splendor and Ruin’ series. My novella-length preview of the novel is available on Amazon. The full novel is planned for release in print and as an e-book in August 2011.

You can follow my blog, ‘Moses and Dionysus Walk Into a Bar …’ at I’m also a co-host of the popular Adventures In SciFi Publishing podcast.

I invite you to read a sample from my epic story and, more than anything, I hope you’ll enjoy it and feel inspired to pursue your own passion.
