I’m goofy-excited to announce that my debut novel is scheduled for release on August 1st, a few days before my birthday. (EDIT: The book is out!)

The Black God's War (Novel)


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.

Sorry about that spammy link to my blog. Not sure why that’s there.

It wasn’t me! I swear!

Haha! That’s a plug-in I use called CommentLuv. I like it when my peeps use it to show what they’re blogging about 🙂

As for the novella, if you’re interested in the novel, I’d suggest waiting for that instead. The novella is a long excerpt from the novel, but the chapters are in a different order. Either way though, thanks very much!

Will do, but I may take a sneeky peak at the novella anyway.

I appreciate that. The first five chapters are the same in both versions.

July 8th, 2011 at 7:08 pm

That’s really great to hear, Moses. Best of luck on your launch, and thanks for all those great interviews you do. 🙂

July 11th, 2011 at 5:52 pm

Awesome. …so, when’s the next one coming out?

Thanks, Michael. I really appreciate you listening!

David: Ha! I don’t want to make any predictions yet, other than at least one more in 2012 😉

July 11th, 2011 at 7:42 pm

Fair enough.

July 11th, 2011 at 8:49 pm

I am so looking forward to reading it. Can’t wait! Yeah!!!!

Yep, I really DO love that cover 🙂 I’ll check out the first five chapters, then, and bug you for the finished novel. If it’s not out by April 2012… Perhaps I can shake it out of you in person in Las Vegas! No pressure 😀
