Jade Suit of Death

When, Where, What, Who

Over the past five (nearly six) years, I’ve written a plenitude of stories featuring the characters of Charles St. Cyprian, the Royal Occultist, and his assistant, Ebe Gallowglass. So many, in fact, that two years ago I had to assemble a story chronology, for my benefit, if no one else’s.

The Hairy Hands of Bento (Box)

The newest issue of Mysteria Press’ free semi-regular anthology, Bento Box, is now available for download, and, among a wealth of other stories, it includes “Hairy Hands”, a new (sort of) Royal Occultist story. Keen-eyed fans might recognize this story as the prologue for the new Royal Occultist novel, Jade Suit of Death, just cleaned up a bit for singles competition, so to speak. Regardless, why not go grab a copy of Bento Box today?

A Halloween Treat

It’s the countdown to both Halloween and the release of The Adventures of the Royal Occultist #2: The Jade Suit of Death, and to celebrate, starting today until All Hallows Eve, the first Royal Occultist novel, The Whitechapel Demon, is available as a free download for the Kindle! And speaking as the author, it’d make my month if we could get Whitechapel Demon to climb the Amazon rankings as high as it can go. So grab your copy today, and please share, retweet and spread the word so that others can do the same!
