Beyond Order & Chaos Contest

            So. I've recently put up my novel Beyond Order & Chaos up on Inkshares. To help promote it, I think it's time for a little fun: design-a-BOC-character-contest fun. That's right... I want you to pick a character from Beyond Order & Chaos and send in what you think they should look like, and if I like yours the best, you'll get a $10 Amazon gift card! Here's how you enter:

1. Read the sample at the link here, pick a character or characters from it and whip up a spiffy design. A b&w sketch, a full-color image, cosplay if you want to go real crazy... all will be considered!

2. Send your design via attachment (jpegs would be preferable, but any format works) to with the subject heading "Character Design Contest." Make sure you include the name of the character(s) in the body of the e-mail, so I'll know who you've designed. NOTE: must be a character from Beyond Order & Chaos  to qualify.

            I'll be taking submissions until Sept. 23, after which I'll choose my favorite and post it here and at the Inkshares page for all to see. If I get more than one that I like, I may post those, too, but only one winner will get the $10 Amazon gift card. There will be a winner no matter what - if I get only one qualified submission, then that submission will get the gift card - so you might as well toss the dice against the wall and send me what you've got!

             Thank you, and good luck!

Beyond Order & Chaos is up on Inkshares

            So, I've decided to give this Inkshares thing a go, as my novel Beyond Order & Chaos is up and ready to be pre-ordered!

            The novel tells an interactive, branching story similar to the old Choose Your Own Adventure books, in which the superhero Light loses his powers in a final battle with his arch-nemesis at the mention of a single word. Of course, this leads him down further adventures in which the reader controls the story, spanning pretty much the whole length of an entire universe of gods, monsters and maybe one or two kitchen sinks along the way. I've always felt that superheroes where at their best when they were allowed to explore every corner of the weird, genre-bending universes they inhabit, and so I attempted to pack that same level of detail into the one Light traverses throughout the course of the story(s).

            If that sounds like something that would interest you, do me a favor and click on over to the link below and give it a look. There's a small sample of the book and also a video I put together (that hopefully won't make me cringe in the future) showing off the many wild directions the story can take:
