Launching: my Darquepunk series

What I’ve been working on for the past 3 months:

Paranormal sci-fi noir. Darquepunk science fiction for the gothic, different, and queer.



And the first book is Monster Stalker: A Darquepunk Novel.


Now available for pre-order!

I’m proud of this work (hitting at 93K words, so it’s a full-length novel), as I had to go out of my comfort zone to write it. I’ll let the synopsis speak for me. ^v^ I hope you’ll support it and when it releases, enjoy it. 🙂

Horror follows vampire Nico to a new world, and an old horror within her responds; kill it before it kills her. Nico jeopardises everything on a lone, redemptive path rescuing victims of the underworld and hunting the nightmare that created her—a monster only Nico knows is there.
A paranormal sci-fi noir. Darquepunk science fiction for the gothic, different, and queer. Gen X, gender fluidity. Polyaphroditic.
Some sexual content; Mild language; Violence; sexual violence.

“Kill first.”
Vampire Nico popped from the year 1998 into a New NewYork airfield, a sudden chrono-immigrant with Mr Bear strapped to her, her switchblade in hand, and no idea how or why she got there. She’s on Darqueworld: an intragalactic society 400 light years from Old Earth, where Other-beings and humans co-exist and vampires are no big deal. Nico can have a normal student life at last and even date a diner waitress she likes. But there’s a darkened spot in her mind, one blanking out her immediate past, and the spectre of Nico’s maker haunts her. Only in New NewYork’s underworld can Nico find what pursues her—and kill it again.

“Way to go, Super Nico!”
“I am not super,” Nico snapped.
“Got it. Stupid nickname. You are Lone Nico and Bear.”

Enjoy the Darquepunk Universe:
The preternatural take to the stars, but the gods and goddesses had long gone first, in sentient sky boats, chariots, and Valkyrian ships, to found a planet of quakes, dreams, and monsters. Darqueworld: where spacefarers and chrono-travellers seek answers and riches amid celestial corporations and refugee Other-beings. Weird-matter wielders, shifters, vampires, intragalactic species, bio-mechanical beings, artificial constructs—and mere humans; every adventurer and outcast with a dream or desire, come to Darqueworld for haven or hell.

TONIGHT, on Krypton Radio: Me!

TONIGHT, 9pm Pacific, join me and hosts Gene Turnbow and Susan Fox on the Sci Fi radio show, EVENT HORIZON. ‪#‎steampunk‬ ‪#‎geekculture‬ ‪#‎scifi‬ for your wifi! We’ll be gabbing about all things Dark Victorian. Airing right after Steam Powered Cabaret and certain to be a perfect accompaniment with your beer and onion rings at SDCC, Tuuuune in! 😀

MORE later! I’ve finished writing SUNDARK, An Elle Black Penny Dread and am doing my second read-through before sending to the beta reader. Also looking to gear up with Scrivener and get 3 manuscripts going (outlining 2). I know, ambitious, but I scored a table at PHOENIX COMIC CON 2014 and that being in June of next year, would really like some awesome titles done by then! 🙂

Am watching the (soon to be) blooming Corpse Flower via live stream at the Botanic Garden:

Was I, or am I going to be at SDCC (San Diego Comic Con) tomorrow? Nahh, I am perfectly happy to have stayed home and gotten SUNDARK done, to say the least, and to eat ice cream whilst watching the incredibly still and silent Corpse Flower. 😀 I hope to catch it when it Walks.

JOIN ME, in this vigil. :-o~~~~

All the best!
