1. Hey Guest, welcome back to DLP

    As you can see, we've changed our look. We've migrated from vBulletin to the Xenforo forum system. There may be issues or missing functionality, if you find anything or have feedback, please check out the new Xenforo Migration Feedback forum.

    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    My latest offering, ladies and gentlemen:

    [​IMG]



    Synopsis:

    “Now who’s letting people die in the streets?” I sighed. “Support me, publically. A show of united strength, a true alliance—the Knights Infernal against the Everlasting. Not Declan Hale against Jon Faraday.” I took a deep breath and exhaled slowly. “Jon, brother, I am looking for a reason not to kill you. Please give me one.”

    Declan Hale has been possessed by his greatest enemy – Lord Oblivion of the Everlasting. He has lost control of his power, his body, and the Everlasting’s dark intent will tear him from True Earth, to star-strewn citadels, and into open war against his own people in Ascension City.

    The Knights Infernal and their king, Jon Faraday, Declan’s half-brother, have never seen eye to eye. Now with Oblivion in control, the Shadowless Arbiter is unleashed against the Story Thread. Something else moves in the shadows, something born of god and man, and it does not have Declan’s best interests at heart.

    The stakes are raised, the deck is stacked, and war, or something like it, is inevitable.

    *~*~*~*



    The story is urban fantasy, and for those of you who loved Wastelands of Time, you should really like this. Similar themes and plot devices (the Infernal Clock) make an appearance. I like to think Wastelands prepared me for this story.

    GO BUY IT NOW FROM AMAZON!

    Or if you'd like to start the series from the beginning, check out the first book here: Distant Star

    Or the first three books in a boxset!

    Seriously. Buy it now. I'm hoping to fleece you all of $4.99 and go clear the top shelf of scotch at my local liquor store.

    However, seeing as how this is DLP, and you've all helped shape my writing over the years, I'm going to offer the story FREE to whoever wants it. Just send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you a PDF of the story.

    I only ask that you leave a review - an honest review - on Amazon, as that'll help me out immensely. So how about it? Kickass story in exchange for a review? Or buy it and support me that way.


    Oh, and for those who'd rather have a paperback version - that's due to land early October!

    I lived in my mind but I lost my key.
    For the second book in a row, I have plowed through it in a matter of hours.

    I thought it was excellent. It expanded the world. Even better it was more similar to the first three than Lost Grace. Lost grace was different and good, but the change in format took some getting used to. This is a combination of the two styles to me and it works the best.

    Story-wise, I enjoyed the banter between Oblivion and Declan. For all that he has seen and experienced, Oblivion continued to underestimate Declan and Declan is the wrong scotch loving son of a bitch to underestimate.

    That is some fast and sexy, mate. I'm glad you enjoyed it - I'm setting up something long and epic here, probably another 7 books worth. Because 12 seems like a reasonable number of books. Heh.

    I'll PDF it to ya, mate! That offer will always stand.

    All right, I'll get the first book tomorrow morning.
    Few hours on a plane should be enough to read it. I'll get the rest when the plane lands!

    Goddammit, Joe. You're writing these faster than I can read them. At this pace you'll be done with the other seven before I finish this one. Go write some more Unfound Door so I can catch back up.

    All joking aside, it is great to see you back in the saddle again.
