The judge returns and she’s bringing a world of hurt to the bad guys
Greetings from the Sub-Arctic!
Nothing replaces words like pictures… here’s our homestead in Alaska as the growth returns for a brief but vibrant period of time where it’s too light to see the stars. They will return with the dark come September. In the meantime, it’s a beautiful time of year.
11 days to Stanley 🙂 He had a formal going away party where he was the guest of honor. He doesn’t look like he’s digging the sombrero but he did enjoy his party. He’s practicing wearing his shirt because he’s a California dog. Our hottest summer days may seem cool to him. He could be dressed in something until he can grow some extra fur.
Read to the end because I do have a no-strings-attached giveaway for a couple good leadership books. Maybe something you can sneak to your boss…

A crime against all – stealing one’s life blood.
It prolongs life! It gives strength and power. Such exotic luxuries come at a high price. Those who have been drained? “Donors” but not quite volunteers. That’s why they’re kidnapped, never to be heard from again.
Taken from their families and removed from existence.
Who would do such a thing? Do the ones paying for this blood know where it comes from?
Which crime is greatest? The Magistrate is called in to end the nightmare, but she can’t do it alone. Rivka enlists the aid of two with the most intimate knowledge.
The Magistrate heads out to dismantle the Blood Trade, going for the throat of both buyers and suppliers. The perpetrators have money and power and won’t easily give them up.
Magistrate Rivka Anoa is the legal eagle you want on your side. No better friend. No worse enemy.

What else am I working on?
Leviathan’s War (Battleship: Leviathan Book 2) is well under way. My target is to get it finished by May 27, then I’ll immediately begin Leviathan’s Final Battle (Book 3). I want to have this trilogy finished by June 15th so I can get it turned in to Aethon Books to get into their system for publication this fall. I’m not sure I’ll get the third and final book done by mid June. I’ll see where I am and turn in what I have so they can get rolling in trying to bid out the audiobooks.
And then Ian Bragg 4 – A Fatal Bragg. That cover is under contract and we should have it in a few weeks. I could use a few more reviews on Ian Bragg (each book’s numbers tells a story). If you read the books and liked them, I’d appreciate a few kind words. We’ll see how book 4 does later this summer.
After that, I’ll be writing Rick Banik’s second book. Let’s dig back into the three-letter agencies and cesspool that is politics in Washington D.C. Or I may be writing Judge, Jury, & Executioner book 13 – The Interview. The jury is still out…
Love – Haight is a book about a paranormal court, where everyone’s rights are protected, and justice comes for the lawbreakers. A little humor, romance, horror, and mystery. I have the two books for that series to be published, but we decided to hold off on the summer. We’ll publish the first book in August and the second book one month later.
A new coming-of-age fantasy series that I am co-authoring. We are nearly at the end of book one. We need to think up a title and series name.
A military sci-fi series that I’m working on as a co-author. This one is plodding along, but we’ll get there. It’ll be called Old Glory.
I’m sure there’s more…
“Units without mutual support are doomed”
Where did that quote come from? I tweaked it up from the Marine Corps Small Unit Leaders Manual and used it as a chapter header in Leviathan’s War.
Get your leadership chops going. How about a two-book giveaway with no strings attached (besides US only)? Sign up with the link in the comments – I’m not adding your email to a list or anything. KingSumo needs it to select a winner, that’s all.
