You may notice things are a bit bare bones here at the moment. Just a little construction as I decide how to display things here and what to focus on (because clearly blogging is not my thing lol).
So the first two books of the Brookline series are done! By done I mean written and edited. They still need to be formatted for print and ebook and released, but I’m fairly sure I want to finish the entire series before I release anything.
Up next … writing and editing the third book, which is their freshman year of college. Formerly titled Brookline University: Freshman Year, the book is now called . . . yeah, I got nothing. I’m hoping a title will strike me as I write.
Books 3, 4, 5 and 6 each cover a year of the characters in college. There is a lot of work ahead because this book lays the ground work for everything else in their college experience. In particular I’m getting very real with sorority elements, especially the not-so-great ones.
I know, I said publishing four books this year practically killed me, but here I am with a fifth. Self Publishing for Canadians grew out of a huge blog post here. There was so much information to share on self publishing, especially in regards to Canadian-specific information.
The ebook is available on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble and all major online outlets. The great news? It’s only 99 cents!
If you’re a Canadian that’s always wanted to self publish, this book is a great guide to get you started. It was an Amazon Canada Bestseller in Authorship in late 2018.
Bayou Bound, the third book in the Sin City saga, is now out everywhere in digital and print.
Jake Wheeler is back in town and he needs Tim Kelly’s help. Against his better judgement, Tim ends up on a cross-country road trip with his least favourite person. When they get pinched by a crooked sheriff in a crooked Louisiana parish, it’s five years hard labor in a prison camp. No one knows where they are, and no one’s going to come looking.
Escape is the only thing on their minds.
Buy it now in digital or print format.

Tim Kelly has never been a fan of the Chicago Mob, and in 1965 Las Vegas, they’re the only game in town.
Tim’s latest venture has caught the attention of Sam Wyatt, a Fremont Street mobster with two casinos. Unfortunately, he’s also caught the attention of the Chicago Outfit’s most ruthless enforcer. Now Tim has a choice to make – play ball or stake his own claim – and his decision could have lasting effects.
