Quest of the Five Clans, Book 1: the Blood Tartan

Long ago a mysterious family of mad geniuses split into five clans; feuding, hiding, hording their secrets of fighting and art, magic and mystery. Now at the dawn of the cold industrial 19th century, only the five clans together can hold back the blood-red tide.

Unless they dive into it laughing. I did say 'mad'.

Just to show that I have not ONLY been playing video games since 'Angels'. Also to make certain people laugh. You know who you people are.

Sorry this one is so late--I got roped into painting, and didn't realize that also meant taping doorways and hanging plastic first--needless to say, five hours later, I got to sit down and finish this chapter.

Cold Solar

The first Mars colonies were brutalized like cattle for Earth's benefit. They dug too deep into the Martian rock and discovered an ancient weapon. Sixteen years after their rebellion, the new Martian kingdom sends an ambassador on a peaceful voyage to Earth where she is attacked, resulting in a Martian colonial invasion. For one history teacher and pro sword fighter, Mark Bowen, it's a race against time to find out who launched the attack, or die in the process.

New Chapter! I had a crazy week last week that ended with completely rebooting my netbook that I use for writing. No worries though! My creative juices are still flowing! Would love to hear what you guys think!
