“I even ate this morning. My mother would be so proud of me. She’d be mad at you, though.”“For bringing you into a police investigation?

What makes you think it’s the same as yesterday?”Sam twisted to a stop in front of him, and before he could stop her, she rested three of her fingers at the bottom of his ribcage. “Coffee stain.” She looked up and her eyes met his. “You should be more careful about that.”Derek wrapped his fingers around hers as he removed her hand from his side, holding it tight as he said, “I’ve been a bit preoccupied. Must’ve grabbed a dirty shirt on accident.”“This is why you need me. Someone to watch your back. Don’t detectives normally have partners or something?”“The partners I’ve had in the past weren’t in charge of making sure I was dressed to code.”“Then you need a girlfriend.”Derek dropped her hand and moved past her to open the door to the building. “If that’s your way of hitting on me, I’m not interested.”“Excuse me?” Sam walked through the door and followed his lead as he went to the elevator.“Touching counts as flirting. We’re not doing that. Got it?”“Good grief, I wasn’t flirting. I’m just more hands-on than you.”Derek glanced over at her even as he clenched and unclenched the hand that had just touched hers. She had been throwing him off his game from the second she’d first caught him outside their building, and he wasn’t any closer to getting his equilibrium back.~~~~~Magic always comes back...

Join a half-mad drifter and a trigger-happy vegetarian cyborg as they bring DEATH TO THE WITCH-QUEEN!Williym Blaik may not be smart. Or literate. Or sane.

In Qilliara, a glitchy cyborg who takes 37 minutes to reboot, he's found just that: an opportunity to break free from the degenerate, mutant-filled wasteland where he's lived his whole life. All he has to do is help Qilliara save something she calls the universe by killing his world's tyrant, the Witch-Queen Jaxitza.Even if they manage to carve a path through the Witch-Queen's twisted legions, Qilliara has made it clear that she can't and won't grant Blaik's wish. In fact, she doesn't even seem to care if he lives or dies. But then Blaik is not that smart. Or sane.It's like The Wizard of Oz. But Oz is a degenerate pocket dimension. The Scarecrow is a petty outlaw. Dorothy is a relentless two-gunned cyborg. And the Wicked Witch has legions of twisted mutants and infernal machines at her command. An implausible duo is off to see the witch... to blow her head off and save a universe.Please note that the series begun by this book is currently ON HOLD!Author Q & A!Q: The best and most enduring SF tackles heavy themes that are relevant today, including but not limited to: the meaning of being human; sharing the universe; Earth's future; social & class divisions; the repercussions of technological progress; never giving up against all odds; virtues like honor, duty, and loyalty. Will this book address such issues?A: No, no, no, and no! The Avenjurs of Blaik & Qil is meant to be fun & fast-paced. But that's not to say that it's frivolous. It's not parody or farce or even comedy, in my mind. It just doesn't take itself too seriously... until the time comes for it.Q: I read the book, and I want to know where I can buy the song "The Skull of Eternity" by Astral Titan.A: Sadly, that song does not yet have a concrete release date in our version of reality. If you want Blaik's theme song, try "Tiger! Tiger!" by Slough Feg. Not only is it awesome in its own right; it also borrows lyrics from "Tyger! Tyger!" by none other than ... William Blake. That poem features heavily in the classic SF novel which the Slough Feg song is written about: The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester, one of the Best. Books. Ever. Go read it after this one.
