about me

Hi to all!

I write you once again from the high desert and Burning Lands of Arizona after two years of gracious southern living in North Carolina. During that time other things occupied me than writing but now I feel the stories coming back and the desire to share them with all of you.

My novel BITE MARK has been up and down the chart for some time now. If you haven't read it I encourage you to do so. I've been told it pops right along and I certainly like it. It will soon be joined by its sequel (or at least companion book) tentatively titled THE BOOK OF THE FLAYED GOD featuring Peter Tune - one of the major characters in the previous book. I hope you'll give it a try as well.

Best to you all

The Book of the Flayed God

James E. Coplin

The Department of Homeland Security is charged with protecting the borders from all dangers to the Republic. Some come from the realm of nightmare.

The last time homicide detective Peter Tune had become involved in the supernatural it began as an investigation into a series of brutal murders and ended in a life and death struggle with a werewolf. Now as a Special Agent with the secretive SSIS division of Homeland Security, he encounters it again against the back drop of the Mayan doomsday calendar and ritual sacrifice that spreads from the jungles of Central America to the midnight hallways of a prestigious Art Institute in a Midwestern United States city.

The sacred codex of Xipe Totec, one said to be written in the hand of the Flayed God itself, has surfaced - one said to contain the power to decipher the secrets of creation and to pave the way towards the promised Fifth Age. Sought on one side by an unholy alliance between a bloodthirsty Mexican Cartel leader and a powerful Brujo warlock and the other by Agent Tune aided by Police Detective Pamela Remington and the mysterious anthropology professor Helen Goering, death and destruction follow its path. The fate of the world rides on the outcome until the God itself takes a hand!


Bite Mark

James E. Coplin

Forget about Full Moons and Wolfbane. A Werewolf may pad into your body like an unused lair. It comes out when ever it wishes.

Jack Grady came to the Yukon in 1896, wandering its frozen waste in search of gold and adventure. What he found was torment and damnation through the curse of a Tanguit Shaman.

For 114 years Jack has lived the nighmare of the waking dead. Yet even the undying die and those that are dead may someday come back. Each curse runs its course and Jack is resurrected into a world where all those he knew have been bones for over a century. Yet his punishment remains. Where once he was a man imprisoned in the body of a wolf, he now must live the hunted life of a wolf in the body of a man!

An uneasy truce has existed between his two natures. Yet when Jack falls in love with a pretty Goth waitress named Annie Forrest, all bets are off!

I'm not sure thats exactly the tone you were looking for yet Duplicity has the feel of the best of the 1950-1960's SF. It took me back to when I was a nerdy kid (before the word was invented) hanging around the second hand paperback stores on Hennepin Avenue. Well done and thank you for introducin... view book

I hesitated to comment because anything I might say has already been spoken for - much better then anything I might. A brilliant book with the ability to embed you with the characters and the backround against which they act. view book

I came across Fade and began to read it with certain pre-qualifications. I am not a great advocate of the lengthy, emotive introspection that defines what has loosely been coined "teen fiction." Nor do I generally favor First Person as the best narrative. Yet I do like style, easy identification w... view book

The mark of a good children's book is when it seldom reminds you that it is one. Glass Dreams sooths you into it with uncomplicated but familiar characters, a traditional but suspenceful plot and the fun of an author who obviously enjoys the story she's telling. It's contageous. The Circus is the... view book

Theres little I can add to the other comments other than this adds to the entire circus of the wicked way genre such as The Circus of Dr. Loa and even Bradbury's Something Wicked This Way Comes. Good job and good luck. Backed of course. view book
