Forever Boy: Sneak Peek at Chapter 1

Read the first chapter of Forever Boy now, free. No crystal ball needed.

It is only a few more days to go before I kick off my new Clockpunk Wizard series with the release of the novelette, Forever Boy. All efforts are going well for hitting next week’s date for Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble. Forever Boy will be available for download and instant gratification on all popular eReader devices.

If you haven’t yet had a look, I’ve made a page for the Forever Boy book trailer on my website. I also have the back cover blurb available for your enjoyment. Be sure to come right back because I have another treat for you below.

Yes, you must wait until Tuesday to get the rest. I know I’m being a meanie. I’m told it is one of my better personality traits. But nevermind me. Please take a few minutes now to meet the new wizard in town and his clockworks assistant.

“We need to be here.”

“Magical reasons?”
