I'm working on book one of the next trilogy, which is already under contract. It'll be a stand-alone series that takes place in the Powder Mage Universe about ten years after Autumn Republic. I'll focus on a conflict between distant Fatrasta and the neighboring Dynize Empire.(less)

Hey Marc! Thanks a ton!

The Wings of Adom are certainly on my (very long) list of side characters/entities I want to explore more in the short fiction. Right now I just finished a short story based on Vlora and I'm working on a murder mystery that features Adamat.(less)

“Doctor, what could you prescribe for Charlemund?”
The doctor looked down his nose at the unconscious form of the arch-diocel.
“Arsenic?”
“Now, really. Something to give him a quality headache and a great deal of memory loss.”
“Cyanide.”
Brian McClellan, Promise of Blood

“You’ve one mark on your record,” Tamas said. “You once punched a na-baron in the face. Broke his jaw. Tell me about that.”
Olem grimaced. “Officially, sir, I was pushing him out of the way of a runaway carriage. Saved his life. Half my company saw it.”
“With your fist?”
“Aye.”
“And unofficially?”
“The man was a git. He shot my dog because it startled his horse.”
“And if I ever have cause to shoot your dog?”
“I’ll punch you in the face.”
“Fair enough. You have the job.”
