You read that right! I’ve been working with my editor, K.H. Koehler, on it for the last couple of months, and it’s ready to go! She did a phenomenal job streamlining my prose. And I thought I was good at that!

Today, I’m preparing it for publication and pre-sales, with a release date of August 7, 2021! In just a few weeks, you’ll be able to continue your adventure with James “Bodacious” Creed.

What has he been up to since Bodacious Creed: a Steampunk Zombie Western? Where does he live? Is he still fighting for justice? You’ll learn all that soon.


cover reveal


Months ago, I commissioned Mark Reid Author Packages to create the cover for Bodacious Creed and the Jade Lake. He not only came up with a wonderful design, he updated the typography, too. To keep a consistent design between books, I also used the same typography on the first book in the series, Bodacious Creed: a Steampunk Zombie Western.

Here it is, the cover of Bodacious Creed and the Jade Lake!


I’m still preparing the book for presale in print and Kindle formats. Soon, I’ll find a reader and get the audiobook version completed, too. I’ll update this space when I have links.

Meanwhile, feel free to search for Bodacious Creed and the Jade Lake on Amazon, and to purchase Bodacious Creed: a Steampunk Zombie Western if you haven’t read it yet.

I did a ton of research for this novel, but once I had that done, it took about a year to write it. I expect to have the third book out in less time.
