People have told me in the past that they have not been able to find all of my books. If you read my space opera, then all of the books of that type will eventually appear on the ‘People who bought this also bought’ list. However, you won’t find my fantasy or near future scifi there. So here it all is, at least what I have so far, with links to their individual Amazon sales pages. All are also available on Kindle Unlimited with the exception of Machine War 3. It will appear on KU in a couple of months. Hope everyone finds this helpful. And to those with new Kindles, try one of my books. I don’t think you will be disappointed.
The dates alongside each book is the year it was written, not the publication date. The earliest any book was published was December 13, 2011. when both The Deep Dark Well and The Hunger were published. Right now I am sitting at just over 4,000 reviews on Amazon, with a 4.6 * average. On Goodreads, a little harder Audience, I have 4,166 ratings with a 4.12 * average.
