Why are these books still here on my "currently reading" list?

Some of them have been there for quite awhile, like Rama II, which I haven't touched since finishing page 56 way back in March 2015.

I've read that book before, however, so it's not too bad. That's no excuse for The Bully Pulpit: Theod... Read more of this blog post »

Out now: Chasing Impossible. Abby and Logan's story and the sixth full length novel in the Pushing the Limits series.



Logan's Point of View:

In Chapter One of my novel The “Volunteer”, Dr. Lorraine Slater gives Danielle several examples of casual nudity in popular culture in her pitch for her sociology project. While The “Volunteer” is fiction, the things cited by Dr. Slater are real.

I'm happy to say that more of Steampunk genre is coming into Wizards' Secret Service Book 3! The book series is getting better. Book 3 has more magic, secrets, technology and family relationships. The series is getting a much darker atmosphere.
Stay tuned for the day of release! ;)
