Against an unholy army of red-eyed aliens, one man will rise to save us all… right after he gets his exosuit back.
Jarek Slater was never a hero.
… Okay, rarely a hero.
… Fine, SOMETIMES a hero.
But never for free.
… Or, like, never when the dirty bastards didn’t kinda deserve it anyway.
Look, it’s complicated being a decent man in a world ravaged by raknoth invasion and lawless marauders. Or was complicated, at least. Right up until those red-eyed pricks had to go and steal his exosuit, too.
You don’t steal a man’s exosuit. You just don’t.
But when Jarek’s quest for vengeance runs him straight up against a raknoth stronghold and a mysterious blonde who throws grown men around like telekinetic frisbees, he soon learns there’s far worse than missing exosuits to worry about.
And if he and his fiery new friend don’t put a stop to it, they may just be looking at Apocalypse Number Two…
A fine work by Luke Mitchell, I’d grab it in a heartbeat!

The Tin Rose
A gypsy’s promise. A clockwork poison. A race to save a love balanced on the edge.
On the night they were to elope, a spurned lover returned. A gift, she claimed. But the clockwork contraption unwound a poisonous bloom, sending Lady Emily and Luca, her gypsy love, on a desperate race to reach the cure.

The Dragon Blood Collection
A thousand years have passed since a dragon has been seen in the world. Science and technology have replaced magic, which has dwindled until it has become little more than an element of myth and legend.
There are those who still have dragon blood flowing through their veins, distant descendants of the mighty creatures of old. These rare humans have the power to cast magic, the power to heal, and the power to craft alchemical weapons capable of starting wars… or ending them. But they are feared for those powers, and in recent centuries, they have been hunted nearly to extinction.
The few remaining survivors must find a way to change how humanity perceives them or be lost to the world forever.
The Dragon Blood Collection includes three full-length novels of action, magic, and romance:
- Balanced on the Blade’s Edge
- Blood Charged

Death to the Witch-Queen
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. But he knows an opportunity when one falls from the sky in a flash of blue fire and saves his life. 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.
Oz as a degenerate pocket dimension? Dorothy as an armed cyborg. Say no more!
Webley and The World Machine
A strange coin. A mysterious elevator. Are these enigmatic items enough to prevent a war that could destroy the world?
Adal and Arija gave little thought to what makes the world go round until they were guided into a dark cave by a cryptic coin. Deep within the Earth they found a land they never dreamed possible. One…that challenged all they believed. There they met a being named Webley who controls the center of the Earth.
But not all his creations are happy.
When a ploy to overthrow him turns violent, Adal and Arija are forced to choose sides. Can they put their growing feelings for each other aside and work together to stop the brewing war? Or will their journey into the impossible be their last?
A strange coin? A mysterious elevator to the heart of the Earth? (BTW, this guy knows how to hook a reader). I’ve already got my copy. What about you?
The Dragon Lady
A clockwork dragon sidekick with an attitude. Ancient powerful magic that could destroy humanity. Handsome love-interests, and evil villains. For Wylie Petford, being half-dragon could have its perks.
In 19th Century London, stablehand Wylie has just suffered an extreme tragedy. It is this tragedy that leads her to a magical device and her greater purpose.
The alluring Dracosinum holds a key to her hidden heritage and opens the door for a fantastic future while leaving her love Lord Adrian in the past.
The taking over of her hometown by the Villainous Lord Ukridge rips her from her closest friend and further destroys what little good is left in her life.
Now, with the odds against her, she has one chance to become who she is meant to be, escape her shackles and defeat the evil lord Ukridge.
A half-dragon protagonist? An extreme tragedy in 19th Century London? A magical device? Give it to me. All of it!
