Royal Flush asks the question, can a man who throws his dates in a dungeon succeed romantically?

A recipient of the H. R. (Bill) Percy Prize, Royal Flush is a novel about a man known only as the King, and as his Kingdom careens toward catastrophe, he cruises seedy taverns looking for likely maidens. He is particularly bad at this.

His incompetence and his weakness for beautiful women drag him deeper and deeper into trouble. He is portrayed as a cross dresser by the Kingdom Crier, the Kingdom's most popular tabloid. Shortly after, he must defend his castle against a siege with only his royal fiddler, while attempting to steal his royal fiddler's girlfriend. And when the siege lifts, he must play the warmongering Traveling Linguists' Guild against King Cedric, a visiting monarch--the stakes are love, death and dethronement.

Hi Ayrich, I read the first chapter of MIRANDA. I find your premise very compelling--it feeds that common human paranoia that maybe just maybe the whole world is engineered to fool you, to control you, and/or to evaluate you. I had that paranoia as a child and though I have since exchanged them for ... view book

Hi Jan. Your comment on ROYAL FLUSH is by far the best I’ve received on this site. I know already that I’ll be taking several of your suggestions. One thing, though, about the oversized goat--my book actually contains many such errors. For instance, colic isn't contagious, so it would be unlikely fo... view book

Hi K. Howard Bell, Since you commented on Royal Flush and also to make up for my brusqueness from before, I read through the Prologue and first two Chapters of Barry Beeswax and the Seven Suspects. I love your hodgepodge of reinvented fairy tales combined with an alternate-reality London. I agree... view book

Hi Luke, I'm very impressed with your ability and dedication at such a young age. I wish I'd had half as much. I've read the first three chapters of Silent Assassin, and I thought they exhibited quite a lot of talent. I recorded my thoughts and suggestions in a Microsoft Word document as I read, and... view book

Hey, I read "Bad Satellite Rising" and I found it very eerie, which I'm guessing is the intended effect. I like how you leave it to the reader to decide whether she's going insane, or whether her dead husband is actually speaking to her through the GPS. Good work. view book
