2014 - A New Year

When I first set up this blog for KARMA AND MAYHEM, I was following the advice of the times. Well, times are a'changing---and drastically in the publishing world.  Blogs for books no longer seem effective.  At least, this one hasn't been. Therefore, I will only sporadically be publishing to this particular blog.  If you're interested in the sequel that's in the works about Tienan's brother, or other books I have in the works or being published, please follow me at my fan forum at

May you enjoy a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
