Since this is my blog, I am quite happy to use it to toot my own horn.
It is with great satisfaction that I announce my next publication. My novel, Heart of the Ronin will be published in hardcover in Spring 2009 by Five Star Publishing.
More information on this will likely appear in this ol’ Groove in the months and weeks to come, but you heard it here first!
And oh, yeah, the novel in a nutshell.
This will be the first novel in The Ronin Trilogy. In a nutshell, it is Excalibur meets The Seven Samurai. John Boorman meets Akira Kurosawa. I call it “historical fantasy.” The story is set in medieval Japan, when gods and creatures of folklore and myth were as real as the village down the road. Underworld crime bosses, bloodthirsty demons, samurai lords, beautiful maidens, and Mongol hordes. Oh, yeah, you know you’ll want to read this!
