Cannons Ready … Aim … Fire Podcast!

Welcome to the launch of my new audio fiction podcast.  You may know me from my other podcast, Heart of the Ronin, or from print versions of my work, but what we have here is unlike anything I’ve done so far.

Rogues of the Black Fury is a military fantasy, soon to be published as e-book and trade paperback by E-Reads.

Here’s a little teaser for what’s loaded in the artillery batteries…

When a band of shadowy fanatics abducts Javin Wollstone’s little sister, Bella, from his care, his only hope to bring her home is turning to a hard-bitten band of special warriors, Commander Rusk and the Black Furies.

The Black Furies are infamous for their bloodthirstiness, their amorality, their unconventional tactics—and for their success.

Javin follows Rusk and his men as they charge through a maze of political intrigues, religious fanaticism, and centuries of racial distrust in a headlong chase across the high seas to save the girl’s life. Little do they know that little Bella Wollstone’s fate could be the spark that sets off a war of Armageddon.
