C. M. Skiera currently lives in San Diego, California, a long way from Michigan, where he grew up, graduated from Michigan State University, and started a career as an environmental engineer. He and his wife are devoted dog-lovers who share their home with two rescue Chihuahuas.

Crimson & Cream is C. M. Skiera's debut epic fantasy novel. He started writing Crimson & Cream in 1999, and after many twists and turns, 13 drafts, plenty of rejections, the arrival of the 21st Century and the advent of online self-publishing, the ebook was self-published in 2012. After that, Mirrors & Mist (2015) and then Warlock & Wyrm (2017) followed as the second and third books of The Oxbow Kingdom Trilogy.

Hi Pat!

Happy Holidays to you, too Pat! I am currently working with my editor on book 3 of the trilogy; Warlock & Wyrm. Our target is to finish by the end of January 2017. Then I will do a final polish and shoot for getting it to beta readers by March. I'll let you know when the beta is ready. Hoping to publish by June 2017, or a little sooner, if things go smoothly.

Cheers!(less)

Some of the most consistent feedback I've received on Crimson & Cream has been regarding the book's cover. In general, comments have stated it could be more professional (not surprising at all). Since I actually create my own covers (like you couldn't tell!), I decided to take a crack at a new image for Crimson & Cream that still maintains a consistent look with the other two books...
